TBP 0016 McMenamin’s (Do Doooo Do Do Do)

Ramblin Oregon - McMenamin's - 05
Back in the day when people still read books for pleasure and information, I found Edgefield McMenamin’s in my trusty book of hostel reviews when I was looking for a place to stay around the Portland, Oregon area.

Despite the glimmering review in my book, I had no idea how wonderful and unusual a stay at McMenamin’s would be.

Not only is there a hostel (and one of the most luxurious ones I have visited), but there is the actual hotel where travelers who do not want to share a bunk can relax in a private room.

But as I explored the landscape, I was thrilled to discover that the hostel actually had a resort ‘feel’ to it, with beautiful grounds, artwork everywhere you look, a brewery, a wine tasting room, music events, a screening room and a spa with a salt pool.

You can also play golf or go off the grounds to explore Portland or the Colombia River area.

Today’s podcast is about my discovery and my “Alice-Down-The-Rabit-Hole” experience at this festive and magical surprise location.

SIDE NOTE: If you are in the Portland, Oregon area this weekend, you should see if you can make it in to McMenamin’s “Half Way to St. Patrick’s Day Celebration”. The big party for this year is TODAY September 14th, 2013!!!
