Celilo Inn Wine Now Available!

The Celilo Inn is located in the heart of Oregon Wine Country.  With over 30 wineries within 40 minutes of the hotel, guests are never too far from a great glass of wine. Aware of our guests’ penitent for delicious libations, the last few months Celilo Inn staff have been hard at work creating our very own Celilo Inn wine. We are now incredibly proud to be releasing Celilo Inn Sangiovese and Celilo Inn Chardonnay.

After much wine tasting and deliberation, the Celilo Inn staff decided to go with a bold Sangiovese as well as a crisp Chardonnay.  Guests will love our Sangiovese that has hints of cinnamon and cherry, making for spicy medium bodied wine–truly unforgettably delicious! Our guests that prefer a white wine won’t be disappointed with our Chardonnay. With scents of crab apple and honey, paired with hints of pear and soft oak, this wine goes down smooth and leaves you wanting more.

Celilo Inn Rock Red wine

Our Celilo Inn wine’s are available for purchase at the front desk for $20 a bottle. They are also included in many of our packages, including our Room-ance Package, and our Massage Package.

Business After Hours Comes To Celilo Inn

Celilo Inn hosts August's Business After Hours

This past Thursday, August 18th Celilo Inn was host to The Dalles Area Chamber of Commerce event Business After Hours. Business After Hours is a monthly event put on by The Dalles Area Chamber of Commerce. Every month the event is put on by a different local business and this month we at Celilo Inn were picked to throw the networking party!

Business After Hours is a networking opportunity for businesses in The Dalles, as well as locals that frequent them! Representatives from various businesses as well as Chamber members stopped by Celilo Inn between 5:00pm-7:00pm to meet each other as well as our guests. Although the majority of guests are Chamber members, every month Business After Hours is open to the public.

Complimentary wine tasting

Celilo Inn wanted to make this Business After Hours one to remember, so with the help of our beautiful views and great weather, we provided complimentary beer and wine to our guests. Waving Tree Winery and Cascade Cliffs Winery were also on hand to provide our guests with complimentary wine tasting, which was a big hit! Not wanting our guests or participants of Business After Hours to go hungry, we had a BBQ where we served succulent Santa Maria Tri-tips, fresh, crisp salad and delectable brownies. Needless to say, our guests were well fed.

Delicious gourmet bbq

Bill Coones' Jazz Trio

While our guests mingled with various business owners, the relaxing sounds of Bill Coones’ Jazz Trio played in the background. Bill Coones’ Jazz Trio has been a popular installment at Celilo Inn this summer and his upbeat and calming Jazz sound has set an inviting tone for our guests.

Wanting our guests to have the total experience, staff at Celilo Inn provided detailed and informative tours of the hotel. These tours included the history of the hotel which was originally built in the 1950’s as a roadside motel. As traffic patterns changed, the motel began to loose its main customer base. A few years back the motel was purchased by the current owners and the old motel went through a major over hall making it the luxury hotel that it is today!

All and all Business After Hours was a huge success, with over 70 people participating in the event. As we told our guests, Celilo Inn is a great place to stay for car clubs, as well as guests interested in fishing, wine tours, rafting, cycling, golfing or girls weekends!

To book your reservation you can call 541-769-0001 or visit www.celiloinn.com. For more information you can email info@celiloinn.com or Like us on Facebook!

Celilo Guests See Styx

Guest enjoying a pre-concert BBQ

Aside from their delicious wine, Maryhill Winery is also known for their great summer concerts that take places in their outdoor amphitheater. This past Saturday Yes and Styx performed at Maryhill!  As part of a deal between Celilo Inn and Maryhill Winery, we provide our guests with a complimentary shuttle service to and from the concert. This past Saturday was no exception!

 

Concerts can be a lot of fun, but going on an empty stomach is no fun at all! When you can’t hear the music over your stomach growling there’s a problem. Not wanting this to happen to our guests, at 3:00 pm Celilo Inn kicked off a complimentary, pre-concert barbeque. The barbeque took place on our patio that overlooks the beautiful Columbia River and The Dalles Dam. Since the Celilo Inn is located in The  Dalles, of course it was a beautiful, warm afternoon.

BBQ at Celilo Inn

 

Like any good barbeque Celilo Inn served our guests mouthwatering hamburgers and cheeseburgers. They could top their burgers off with an assortment of condiments. Since no barbeque would be complete without chips, Celilo Inn provided delicious Kettle Chips to compliment the tasty burgers. To add a little sweet to the savory, our guests could also fill up on juicy grapes!

 

Not wanting our guests to be thirsty, red and white wine was available for our guests as well as ice cold lemon water. Celilo Inn also invited Quenett Winery to provide our guests with a complimentary wine tasting. Quenett provided two red wines and one white. On this gorgeous summer day, the Pinot Gris seemed to be our guests wine of choice, and for good reason! It is an extremely delicious wine, especially for a hot day!

Quenett Wine Tasting

 

Bill Coones' Jazz Trio

To top it all off, Bill Coones’ Jazz Trio performed live on our patio. The upbeat, relaxing jazz music helped set a nice tone to the barbeque.

 

At 5:00 pm it was time for our guests to head on their way. All in all, our guests had a great time gearing up for the concert on our patio. Full and happy, our guests boarded the complimentary shuttle to Maryhill to enjoy Yes and Styx live! With the concert starting at7:00 pm, guests were given ample time to get their seats and explore Maryhill Winery if they so chose.

 

After the concert, guests boarded the shuttle and came back to Celilo Inn. Since shuttles get to leave first, our guests did not have to wait to get out of the parking lot, or deal with traffic. When they returned to Celilo, although tired, many voiced that they had a blast and couldn’t wait to come back for another concert at Maryhill and a stay at the Celilo Inn.

 

To find out more about concerts at Maryhill you can visit www.maryhillwinery.com. For a fun, relaxing, comfortable and convenient place to stay you can email us at info@celiloinn.com or call us at 541-769-0001.
