robert Posted January 25, 2007 Share Posted January 25, 2007 Hey everyone. So here are my thoughts. There aren't really any good places in Portland to have 30+ members stay. So about a week ago I started looking for places in the Beautiful town of Hood River, which is about an hour east of Portland. Hood River is considered one of the top adventure cities in America. Please feel free to Google or Search Hood River, OR. I've been searching for lodges and cabins that can accomodate about 30 people. Most "sleep" 8-12 but I found some bigger ones too. I figure we can easily afford $3,000 a week ($100 per person per week, about $15 a day! Basically as cheap as it gets). To my delight, I found many for about half that cost, and others around that range. I'm sure we could even swing $6000 a week if we needed to (just $30 a day). So I figure we could ALL stay TOGETHER in an awesome lodge on one of the sweetest adventure cities around for a week (7 days total) and then move over to Portland and spend the next 3-5 days there at host houses. For example davidtarrfoster and I could host about 5 people and many other residents here could host other visitors. During that week in Hood River we could easily visit Portland, just an hour away, but I think it would be great to just hang out at the lodge for "most" of that first week. Of course we'd want to probably head over to Portland on day #2 to do loads of vegan shopping and spend the rest of the time at home base and in that community of Hood River. I've researched some places and I'll put my very basic and brief notes on here. I will personally visit some of these places in a week or so, to make sure they don't have Elk Heads on walls or leather furniture, etc. Since ALL of my research is online at this point....I would LOVE it if others could help out too! Some key things to search for on Google or any other search engine: Lodges in Hood River, OR sleeps 25 Cabins in Hood River, OR Destination Resorts Hood River, OR Lodges or Cabins that sleep 20+ people --- Just things like that. Here is my current list. Please share thoughts and ideas. Some places come with hot tub, some with organic orchards, some with 10 bedrooms, some with this, with that, etc. Let's rock this thing for only like $20 per person per day!
