It’s not a trip if you don’t find a new place you love to eat, or a place you’d love to stay. Use this guide to explore Troutdale’s shops, restaurants, and surrounding areas. Fall in love with a small town once again.
Plan a stay at the beautiful Edgefield Hotel, in Troutdale, or drop in for a day visit. Edgefield’s 74 acres host a par-3 golf course, sprawling vineyard, multiple restaurants and a glass blower you can stop in to watch work. Enjoy a drink, stroll the grounds, or go to a movie or concert. It’s all there.
From a farm, to a hospital, Edgefield has a long and storied history. Nearly torn down in the 1980’s, the property was saved by the Troutdale Historical Society and sold to the McMenamin family. Ask about the history at Edgefield and uncover it for yourself.
