Mt. Hood Hamlet Bed and Breakfast

The community (hamlet) of Mt. Hood, on an Oregon Scenic Byway, hearkens back to the late 1800s, when early pioneers were homesteading the Northwest.  The community had the first officially established Post Office in the Upper Hood River Valley in 1890, designated “Mt Hood.”  The first land filing was in 1859, and the settlement of over 100 families had built a two-room school by 1900.  This expanded school building is now the Mt. Hood Community Center.  Pears, apples, cherries, blueberries and other agricultural products continue to be the area’s economic base.  They benefit from the cool evening air and water from Mt. Hood, rising to an elevation of 11,240 feet at the south end of the valley.

 Mt. Hood Hamlet B&B, just a stone’s throw from the site of the first postmaster’s cabin built in 1890, is the hamlet’s only B&B.  Designed in the style of an 1800s Rhode Island home, this recently built four-guest-room bed-and-breakfast incorporates many environmentally friendly products.  Breakfasts take full advantage of  the abundance of local fruits.  The nine-acre property continues the valley’s agricultural tradition, with acreage in cherry production while dedicating more than an acre as a wildlife refuge.  The national Wildlife Federation has given this property a Wildlife Habitat designation.  The B&B is centrally located for exploration of  the Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area, local wineries and all the environs of Mt. Hood itself.
