Built in 1922, McMenamins Grand Lodge is a historic hotel with 90 guestrooms, several bars and restaurants, a full-service spa, a year-round outdoor soaking pool and more. The whimsical lodge is decorated with historic photographs and original art inspired by the history of Forest Grove and the building itself—a former Masonic Lodge.
Come by to explore the grounds and the whole new attic-turned-upper-floor, full of wonder—can you find the secret passageway? Wander with a handcrafted McMenamins ale, wine, cider spirit or house-roasted coffee. Stop in the newest small bar. You could see a first-run movie in the grand theater, get a pedicure in the spa, take a dip in the soaking pool, listen to vinyl in Pat’s Corner . . . and why stop there? Book a room and make it a night.
Don’t miss the Grand Lodge’s concert series, featuring national and international recording artists. See the schedule >>>
