I ABSOLUTELY love this place! Having a background in catering and events, I have attended hundreds of weddings and spent years building up the expectations for my own special day. Hood River was a given for me. I heavily considered 2 other venues and am so glad I stuck with my gut and went them. Initially they had the highest price point, but when I compared the contracts with the other venues I realized I was coming out way ahead and doing a lot less work. Their contract was straight forward and I didn’t experience anything unexpected. The owners went above and beyond. Kind, friendly and so helpful- they must see thousands of couples and I felt like I was the only one getting married that summer. I was able to chose my own caterer, the grounds are immaculate (extra flowers are overkill) and rentals were minimal. You can’t get an event tent, beautiful white chairs, tables, barrels, bar amenities ANYWHERE without renting and it was all included. Not to mention, you cannot pay for this view down the road. Even locals are blown away, it literally looks like you can reach out and touch the mountain.
I have gone back to visit as a guest a couple times in the past few years. Breakfast is always fabulous and when I leave, I am inspired to make my own home just a little homier. You just can’t duplicate the feel or the country charm.
