Accommodations at McMenamins Edgefield, Troutdale, Oregon

Historic Edgefield, built in 1911 as the county poor farm, is a resort in the Pacific Northwest that blends Oregon's natural beauty with McMenamins' signature whimsy: original buildings carefully restored with cozy interiors, organic gardens, great food and drink, live entertainment and more.

Encompassing a 74-acre parcel of farmland at the mouth of the spectacular Columbia River Gorge Scenic Area, Edgefield is a 20-minute drive to or from the center of downtown Portland and about 15 minutes from Portland International Airport.

The stately main building, with over 100 guestrooms and hostel accommodations, is furnished in turn-of-the-century decor. There are no televisions or telephones in the rooms, encouraging tranquility as surely as do the rocking chairs on our verandas. Guests may choose from rooms with private bathrooms or with conveniently located common bathrooms down the hallway. We do offer complimentary WiFi around the Black Rabbit Restaurant, the Library and in many of our event spaces. 

Students, there are small Women's and Men's hostels at the site:  bunks $35/night

There is not a specific booking code for the AGA.  However, PLEASE NOTE in the Booking Comments that you are attending the AGA symposium.
