Steve and Mary Pellegrini have been innkeepers for 7 years of their fanciful inn nestled in the Hood River Valley on the northern slope of Mt. Hood. Mary is often asked if she had a B&B before the Old Parkdale Inn and quickly responds “I raised three kids and a husband, I have been doing the B&B thing for many years!”
Mary’s goal is to be successful enough with the Old Parkdale Inn so that Steve can retire from his life long occupation as a welder in Pipeline Construction, after which they can spend their time together in Parkdale running the inn and enjoying the amazing area they live in.
Steve and Mary enjoy the outdoors and look forward to sharing their knowledge of the area and its many attractions to their guests. Their cat and dog also look forward to making you feel at home.
Mary has been a director on the Oregon Bed and Breakfast Guild board for 7 years, four years served as President. Now she is responsible for promoting the Guild through social media. A member of the Columbia River Gorge Bed and Breakfast Association, Hood River County Chamber of Commerce and the Columbia River Gorge Visitors Association. Prior to moving to Oregon Mary served as Executive Director of the Boys and Girls Club of Cloverdale, CA.
