Celilo Inn Disco Patio Party

Wanting to get our guests ready to boogie the night away at the Earth, Wind and Fire concert this past Saturday at Maryhill Winery, Celilo Inn hosted our first Disco Patio Party!

Starting at 3:30 on a beautiful, sunny afternoon, guests began to mingle on our patio. With spectacular views of The Dalles Dam and the Columbia River as the backdrop to a wonderful start to the night, guests were treated to complimentary burgers and wine. Chowing down on delicious burgers and our very own Celilo Inn Wine, guests were also able to sample Quenette Wine from local Sunshine Mill Winery.

In addition to burgers, views and wine, guests were invited to get down to their favorite songs from the 70’s. One thing is certain, Celilo Inn guests know how to have fun! From one party to another, guests boarded our busses at around 5:30 to head over to Maryhill Winery for the concert.

We love treating our guests to a good time and we look forward to our next Patio Party!

Although beautiful year around, something special happens in The Dalles and the Columbia River Gorge in the Fall. With the changing of the seasons comes a desire for new beginnings.

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.

See you at the BBQ!

One of the great things about Celilo Inn is that it’s located in the heart of Oregon Wine Country. With over 30 different wineries and vineyards in and around The Dalles, OR, wine tasting is usually on our guests’ itinerary!

Maryhill Winery

Maryhill Winery, located 25 minutes from Celilo Inn in Goldendale, WA, is one of the biggest, most renowned wineries in the Northwest. Maryhill opened its doors in 2001 and has been exponentially growing and improving ever since. Currently the winery produces 18 different varietals and 27 different wines! In 2009, Maryhill Winery was voted Washington Winery of the Year by Wine Press Northwest. Over the years Maryhillhas won countless awards for a number of their wines.

Maryhill Winery

On our wine tour you will have the opportunity to taste a variety of their wines, including some of the award winners! The wines available for tasting change regularly, so every time you go it’s a new experience. The staff is friendly, helpful and knowledgeable and dedicated to making your wine tasting experience a memorable one.

The winery is located on a bluff overlooking the Columbia River. If you find a wine you like, you can purchase a glass or bottle and sit on the beautiful, Italian style patio–enjoying your wine and the view.


Cascade Cliffs Vineyard and Winery

In our wine tour package you will also have the chance to visit the Cascade Cliffs Vineyard and Winery. The winery is located 20 minutes from Celilo Inn in Wishram,WA.

A smaller winery, Cascade Cliffs is dedicated to creating wines that are pure and simple yet profoundly delicious. The wine makers have taken example from the beautiful, authentic natural surroundings and have infused this natural beauty into their wine.

Cascade Cliffs Winery

Wine tasting takes place in the winery where you also have the opportunity to see the wine makers in action due to their open-to-the-public view of their production room. The winery has a rustic charm. Visitors can sit inside or out while they relax and sip on one of Cascade Cliffs luscious wines.


Waving Tree Winery and Vineyards

Another possible stop in our wine tour package is Waving Tree Winery and Vineyards. Just like Maryhill, Waving Tree is located 25 minutes from Celilo Inn in Goldendale,WA.

Waving Tree, named for the way the trees sway in the windy area, is located beneath the Stonehenge Memorial. Surrounded

Waving Tree Tasting Room

by numerous “waving trees,” lovely weather and rolling hills, the winery has a pleasant country feel to it. The owners are amiable, knowledgeable and enthusiastic, making every wine tasting experience an enjoyable one. Since the winery produces over 10 different wines and varietals, 8 of which use grapes grown on the Waving Tree Vineyard, you will definitely find your next favorite wine!


Dry Hollow Vineyards

Surrounded by the Hi-Valley Cherry Orchard, the soil and scenery provide perfect conditions for growing and enjoying wines at Dry Hollow Vineyards. Dry Hollow is located in The Dalles, just 15 minutes from Celilo Inn.

Dry Hollow Tasting Room

Atop a hill, the views from the tasting room are truly breathtaking all year round. A visit to Dry Hollow is worth it just for the views, but a taste of their wines is the Hi-Valley Cherry on top!

Dry Hollow produces 7 different wines. Whether you prefer reds, whites or you’re undecided, you will definitely find a wine that suits your taste buds!


Marshal’s Winery

Marshal’s Winery, located 15 minutes from Celilo Inn in Dallesport,WA, is one of the possible stops on the wine tour.

Nestled in a canyon, the peaks of Mt. Hood and Mt. Adams, as well as the majestic Columbia River can be seen from the tasting room. The winery,

Marshal's Winery

which was established in 1998, has been a family business from the beginning. In fact, Marshal’s was named after the owner’s son!  The familial spirit of Marshal’s has carried over to the pourers who will make you feel right at home as you taste their carefully crafted wines.

Marshal’s produces 11 different wines, one of which received the Silver medal at the Tri-City Wine Festival! The wines range from the classic to Marshal’s custom blends. The small town charm paired with the tasty wines makes for a fun and charming experience.


Sunshine Mill

Sunshine Mill is a historic gem. Located only 5 minutes from Celilo Inn, it’s an amazing place to visit just for the history alone!

Originally the Sunshine Mill was an old wheat mill that was in operation for 130 years. Now, however, it acts as a tasting room. When the new owners took over they made sure to restore and preserve much of the building’s history. Much of the original equipment is still there, creating a fun atmosphere for wine tasting.

Sunshine Mill

The Sunshine Mill acts as the tasting room for two local wineries, Quenett and Copa Di Vino. With one stop you have the opportunity to taste wines from two amazing wineries! Currently Sunshine Mill provides 10 different wines to choose from.

The staff is passionate, not only about the wines, but the building’s history as well. When on the Celilo Inn wine tour you’ll be able to sip on delicious wine from local wineries while exploring a piece of history.
