Celilo Inn — The Place To Be This October

Now that summer is officially over, (although many of us are in denial) people begin to think that travel, vacation and good times are on hold until next June. Celilo Inn disagrees. Although the days are shorter, and the weather is a little cooler that doesn’t mean that the fun has to end! Celilo Inn has a lot of spook-tacular things planned for our guests this October. Here are a few of them…

Patio Party

This past summer Celilo Inn hosted a patio party for our guests every Saturday from 6:00pm-8:00pm. These guest get-togethers included musical performances by the talented Bill Coones’ Jazz Trio as well as complimentary wine tastings from local wineries such as Waving Tree Winery, Quenett Winery and Maryhill Winery. Guests could also treat themselves to an assorted cheese platter with crackers and grapes.

Due to the projected forecast that calls for great weather, Celilo Inn has decided to extend our patio party through October 15th. Our October patio party will include musical performances by Jim MacMillian as well as Larry Adair’s Jazz Trio; and in honor of Fall guests will not only be given a complimentary glass of wine but a slice of delicious pumpkin pie as well!

 October Special

Most people are looking for deals during the summer, but why should the Fall have to miss out on all the fun? This October if you stay in one of our View Rooms, you can receive 50% off the second night. Wondering what you can do in The Dalles if you stay two nights? October means it’s harvesting season, which means it’s grape crushing time for the local wineries! So why not stay two nights and take your time visiting all the wonderful wineries the Columbia Gorge has to offer! If this sounds like something right up your alley call Celilo Inn at 541-769-0001 and use the code word “October” when booking your reservation!

Exclusive Halloween Week Special

Just because we’re all grown up doesn’t mean we don’t miss trick-or-treating! Recognizing the kid in all of us, Celilo Inn has set up a trick-or-treating rout of our own, but the reward is better than a bag full of candy!  If you stay at Celilo Inn the week prior to Halloween, you can partake in our winery trick-or-treat package. By visiting (or trick-or-treating) two local wineries and then bringing the receipt to Celilo Inn, you will receive 30% of your stay! We’d say that’s better than a bag full of candy! If you’d like to partake in this grown up trick-or-treat fun, use the code word “Scary” when booking your reservation!

Celilo’s Spook-tacular Weekend 

Think Halloween is just for the kids? Think again! Stay with us on Halloween weekend and have the time of your life! By requesting our Halloween Weekend Package, you will receive the best goody bag of all. What does the Halloween Weekend Package include? Well for only $200 you will get to stay one night in our beautiful King View Room as well as receive 1 bottle of Lyle Style Bloody Mary Mix, 2 Halloween masks, candy, a $30 gift certificate to the Clock Tower Pub and Ale House (this pub is a restored Mortuary downtown!), and you will receive 2 tickets to the Haunted House at The Dalles Civic Center! This is definitely a Halloween weekend you won’t want to miss; just be sure to book your package at least 7 days prior to Halloween weekend to ensure that it is still available.

October Contest

Starting this month Celilo Inn will be starting up our monthly social media contests. Each month a new contest will be posted on either our Facebook page or our new Twitter page. Typically the prize will be a free night stay at Celilo Inn for the following month, however this month we will be doing something a little different! In the spirit of Halloween the prize will be our Halloween Weekend Package! By following us on Twitter you will automatically be entered into the contest which will run October 1st through October 23rd and we will announce the winner on October 24th. If you are this month’s winner you must use the Halloween Weekend Package either October 29th, 30th or 31st. If you do not than the package expires, so be sure to claim your prize!

For more information on specials and packages be sure to speak to our friendly staff when staying at Celilo Inn.
