Discover delicious fruits, go on picking trips, visit wineries and take home your favorite pickings and baked goods for the day. If you're traveling in a group, you can inquire about guided group tours at our front desk.
Our 100% smoke-free hotel features a wide range of services and amenities sure to make us your top choice for Hood River hotels. Our on-site business center features computer and printer access if you need to print off any itineraries, maps, or tickets. The Cebu Lounge is always a popular spot at our Best Western – grab a bite to eat or have a drink to cap your day. Be sure to enjoy our complimentary breakfast before you depart for the Fruit Loop tour.
The 35-mile drive is open all year, but be sure to come during the harvest season from June to October for optimal pickings. From June to August, enjoy picking cherries, all kinds of berries and apricots. During August and September, experience the fragrance of lavender alongside apples, peaches, pears and tomatoes. Finally in September and October, take home pumpkins, chestnuts, gourds, and specialty apples.
Don't miss the special Fruit Loop Cherry Celebration in mid-July, the Summer Fruit Celebration in mid-August, the Pear Celebration in mid-September, and the Heirloom Apple Celebration in late October. It's a perfect time to plan for a country picnic, experience the sweetest fruits and take home harvest, homemade ciders, jams and more.
