TripAdvisor Ratings & Reviews
We visited McMenamins Edgefield as a group trip with friends. I was disappointed. At $140 per night (excluding tax), I sort of expect something very nice, very special, when I am paying for a room that doesn't include a bathroom. This fell very, very short. The room was cold and drafty, extremely noisy, with a loud heater. The bed was very hard. Bathrooms left a lot to be desired. The men's was a public bathroom (urinals & stalls), with one private bathtub (ewww, who would use that!), one private shower, and a private accessible toilet-sink-shower. This was for our wing. I understand that the women's was three individual private toilet-sink-shower rooms. The bathrooms were in rough shape, but generally pretty clean. I would equate this to camping at a very nice campground that was kept extremely clean. The hotel had a lot of character and charm, but things were showing their age. This had been last renovated nearly three decades ago, and it is showing its age. Proximity to the restaurants and bars was great, and the grounds were very cute. The only true "activities" that were free were the heated pool and the glass blowing shop open during the daytime. Unfortunately, we found ourselves disappointed with the on-campus food. We're foodies, so our standards are a little higher than most, and we generally found ourselves comparing the food quality to mid-level chain restaurants, but priced at the same level as higher-end restaurants that you might find in downtown Portland. Drinks were good, but overpriced. The pool was somewhat nice, although very very crowded at night, with paint peeling off the sides and bottom. C'mon, do some maintenance. The public swimming pool I used as a child, 50 years after it was built, is in better shape than this. The bottom line is that McMenamins seems to carry a reputation as a high-end establishment. The historic nature of the grounds and the stories that Edgefield carries is awesome, but simply isn't worth what they are charging for rooms. I would have rather visited during the daytime, sampling a drink or two, watching the glass blowing, and returned in to a real hotel with a real bathroom, near a nice restaurant with good food, in Portland, for the evening. Or stopped in on my way to or from the Columbia River Gorge for a quick drink or meal. As far as anybody reading my review, I probably would have loved this when I was 22 years old, but wouldn't have been able to afford it. I definitely would not visit here with children or pets. We won't be returning.
A variety of delightful experiences in one place!
One of the premier McMenamin's properties. It really is a variety of entertainments on one large property. Nine hole golf? Check. Vineyard? Check. Multiple restaurants? Check. Different, funk, cool rooms? Check. Large, old school, rap around porch? Check. Separate cigar bar? Check. Distillery? Check. Multiple indoor and outdoor event spaces? Check. Billiards? Check. Spa? Check. Soaking pool? Check. Walking paths? Check. Spa? Check. Fun history? Check. Easy to get to from Portland, but far enough away from the congestion to be perfect. Also one shot on mass transit (Tri-Met) from downtown Portland. Amazing selection of beer, wine and spirits (perhaps more than any other McMenamin's) with many made right on the property. Live music in a variety of sizes and venues. The Black Rabbit is perhaps my favorite restaurant on the property, but I will d a separate review for that. Great for a night, or a weekend, or a week. The wonderful staff will have you never wanting to leave.
What a delicious and wonderful surprise !
This property has history and has beauty. It holds summer concerts there and has an onsite movie theater, a bar and a dining room and also rooms to rent for the nights. Our experience was the bar, since we were too early for the dining room. Wonderful, delicious food. Will definitely go back.
A great place like no other!
I went to Edgefield as I have many times and found it to be better than expected as it was crush time. I brought my girlfriend a first timer to Edgefield so the wine tasting was amazing. Where else can you go experience a winery, brewery, and a distillery plus a golf course all on one hotel property. I highly recommend this location as a destination.
Wonderful place so many things of interest to do here
This is one of the McMenamins must-visit places on anyone's list. Great place to stay. Hotel rooms are great and always interesting. There are a number of different bars that you can visit here all with unique detail and drinks that you can find nowhere else. They have a Distillery they have a winery and they have a brewery all on this one property. Along with different restaurants to eat. The outdoor grounds are great to look at and walk around with a drink in your hand.
