Playground for the young at heart
Want to treat yourself to a get-away that is fun, relaxing, and welcoming? A place that is filled with history, art and perhaps a ghost or two? Then book a room and check out this rennovated and reimagined Multnomah County Poor Farm set on 25+ acres. The McMenamin family's crown jewel has an outdoor spa, music, golf (chip & putt), winery/brewery/distillery tours and bars, glass-blowing, pottery shed, cozy booth-filled pubs (the Red Shed, Jerry's Ice Box...) and the larger Black Rabbit restaurant, a movie theater, pool table and a robust calendar of special events to entertain you. The artwork woven throughout the property tells the story of many of the former residents, including a very special black rabbit. The majority of the 100+ rooms do not have private baths, but instead share multiple full-baths on each floor. Each room is unique so its worth talking with staff to find one to your liking. There are tours of the winery, distillery and brewery, as well as of the artwork and place. The clever marketing department has created a Passport to encourage loyalty and visits to all of the McMenamin 60+ properties. There are family rooms and children are welcome, yet most of the activities are geared to adults. Edgefield is fun for a day trip as well, but spending the night is even better.
We loved this place...
I had reviewed this back in June but it's been hanging in the pending box forever...so reviewing it again...excellent place to stay or even just to stop and wonder the halls...don't forget to go to the top floor...we loved sitting on the back porches...and wondering the grounds...the doors to the rooms seem to slam upon closing...no real fault of the customer...most rooms don't have their own bathrooms so you share...but there are plenty of them...we enjoyed ourselves so much that we plan to visit it again...
My must-stop location in Oregon
My family first stayed at Edgefield back in 2010, on a family vacation to Portland. We happened to stay there almost by accident (the Kennedy School was booked), and we are SO grateful that we did. Edgefield is a magical place... adventures and delights around every corner. I returned a few years later when i was in Portland for a work conference, and next July my husband and I will be staying here during a much belated (18 years) anniversary. We cannot WAIT. Whether you are snacking on wild raspberries on the walk to the soaking pool, wandering the organic gardens, or grabbing a drink at one of numerous bars... you will never want to leave. Cannot recommend more highly.
A joyous, novel experience!
We were well into planning for our trip west when a friend recommended McMenamins Edgefield. When I called, they had only two nights available during the 2 weeks we'd be out west. I took a look at their website...and changed our whole trip around so we could book those two nights. And I made the right choice! This place is utterly unique. Housed in a former county poorhouse, it has a victorian feel embellished by murals on every wall and door. There is a winery, distillery, and brewery on campus, all housed in delightful historic outbuildings that have been renovated. There is a variety of quirky bars and restaurants that serve delicious, unique dishes, some tucked under vines in former outbuildings, or in the old Power Station. A free-form salt water pool winds around gorgeous flowers and is a great place to bask. Bathrooms are shared, but there are plenty of them - never had to wait. Our room was spacious and comfortable - the walls decorated with the history of a cigar maker who'd lived there decades ago. Given the chance, we will absolutely return!

Grreat show! They have high quality venues. Great beer. Food is mediocre at best... like concert food. There is not a bad seat in house. I’ve been twice and will be back. There was a over zealous chief that stood in front of my phone while I took a pix as I was to close to fenced off chair area. Jerk! But I smiled and stood next friendlier sorts. Highly recommend concert or a visit. Pros Great place Cons Food Staff on several occasions including restaurants. Hit and miss. $$$-$$$$
