We often come here just for dinner or a movie or to listen to music or have a drink and go to the spa. The atmosphere is uniquely Pacific Northwest and very comfortable. The staff are very friendly and go out of their way to be helpful. The restaurant has decent food. You can wander the grounds and cozy up...

Thanks for sharing your recent visit with Trip Advisor readers. Every review is appreciated especially from frequent visitors to the lodge. Rain, rain and more rain i think it is time for some sun. On the wet days movies are a good way to kick back and relax. This winter we had some great movies. I look forward to what...

My husband and I enjoyed staying at this property in March. The birthday bash was going on and since we're passport holders, we also got to enjoy the 6 clue scavenger hunt. There's a secret room and hallway passage on the top floor that you should check out. The food & atmosphere were great. The beds were hard and not...

We had a late lunch at the Grand Lodge and enjoyed it from start to finish. Only one complaint. Waiter was terrific... attentive, spot-on in his timing for checking in with us, and friendly. But he didn't ask one key question; did we want our salads with our meal or before? Consequently, all the food arrived at the same time....

After visiting/staying at the McMenamins Kennedy School in Portland several times, and visiting the soaking pool at their Bend property, we wanted to check out this location and their soaking pool. The property is huge and incredible, with so many charming little details and fascinating local art and history. There's enough to discover here that it would take 5 visits...

Visiting the area from the beach in Lincoln City; geocaching. Decided to dodge the raindrops and grab a burger and dark beer. Food came quickly and at a reasonable price. Great atmosphere and good service. Enjoyed our visit. Could easily recommend this restaurant to both family and friends.

Rick this sounds like a cool way to spend the day. I have heard of geocaching but have never participated in the fun. Perhaps I will give it a try. Thanks for the review of the dining experience. The burger and a brew is always a good time. Were all thankful you stopped by. Until next time happy journeys.

There were 3 of us, all adults. It was snowing when we went, made the lodge look magical. A typical McMenamins experience, quirky and charming and fun. Seeing as it is a historic property, it's a bit of a drive from downtown Portland. The hotel room was very quiet, had a toilet separate from the shower. The restaurant in the...

This hotel has some unique features - particularly interesting artwork and an interesting history. Some aspects, though, were not useful for my situation. The evening meals were not good (I had three and none was really satisfactory), the room was not cleaned well, the lighting in the room is not good and there is no desk, the rooms do not...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Make a grand escape to McMenamins Grand Lodge! It's all in the details here, with the stately columns and winding drive, wide green lawn, 77 European-style guestrooms, restaurants, movie theater and small bars and some of the most fantastic artwork to ever grace these walls. Built in 1922 as a Masonic & Eastern Star home, the Grand Lodge has stories to tell. Renovated and opened by McMenamins in 2000, what was once tranquil and serene is now vibrant and colorful. Here the walls do speak... As do the doorways, the hallways, and even the overhead pipes. (Look up...)Inspired by the history of the city of Forest Grove and the building itself, McMenamins' artists have infused the Grand Lodge with original artwork and historical photographs - all tributes to the cast of characters who left their mark before us. ... more   less
