Located at the mouth of the Columbia River Gorge, you will find McMenamins Edgefield, in Troutdale.
Originally built in 1911 as a Poor Farm, is now 74 acres that include lodging (100 European-style guestrooms and include suites with private baths), dining, gardens, winery, a movie theater, brewery and distillery, full service spa and salon, and two par-3 golf courses.
It still houses original artwork and lots of historical photographs at every turn.
