Three Things to Know About Visiting Oregon’s Mt. Hood Territory

A native of Portland, Mt. Hood Territory’s executive director, Danielle Cowan, says the things she loves most about her community are its spectacular beauty, endless recreational opportunities, and warm and friendly people. Here are the top three things you should know about meeting there:

1. Close proximity to Portland International Airport (a drive of less than 30 minutes).
2. Affordability.
3. Uniqueness. “From a WPA-era lodge 6,000 feet up the side of a mountain and historic homes and cabins to boutique wineries, scenic golf courses and a museum overlooking the second-largest waterfall in the U.S. after Niagara, we have a wide variety of venues for events that are unique, memorable and can fit most every budget and preference,” says Cowan. 

The 36-room Atticus Hotel in McMinnville, Oregon, opened for business this past spring. The hotel features an on-site restaurant and bar, private dining in the Atticus Hotel Drawing Room, a boardroom for meetings of up to 16 people, a business center and a fitness room. Additional amenities include Dutch-style bicycles, electric-car charging stations, rooms with fireplaces and original artwork from local artists.
