*Schoolhouse rooms are spacious and comfortable, however they do not have private bathrooms. We have personally vetted the situation and promise it's actually quite excellent, especially for the price. We highly recommend these rooms for our friends- you may be sharing a bathroom, but at least it won't be shared with strangers! From the hotel--

"Private rooms feature King and queen bed options for a restful stay, including a sink and vanity, plus shared baths one might expect to find in a European boarding house. There are four individual bathrooms shared between the 10 rooms, accessible through the hallway, mere footsteps from your door. Each has a mirror, sink, toilet, shower, and complimentary shampoo, conditioner & body wash. Each bathroom can be unlocked with your keycard, and once locked from the inside: shows a red indicator to anybody else who tries to scan in."

The property also offers upmarket hostel-style bunks. They are offered at a substantially lower price, but still include access to the hotel's great amenities. Bunks are FREE to our guests on Saturday night only. If you would like us to reserve you a bunk for Saturday please send us a note by email. For other nights, you can book through the property (just without our code).

Alternative accommodations in the Gorge

We highly recommend the quality accommodations and amenities blocked for our guests at the Society Hotel.

If we're unable to accommodate you there, please consider the following alternative options, all in close proximity to the weekend's festivities:

These properties do not have any official blocks, but we can try to find you preferred pricing through our frequent traveler programs- just send us an email.

Guests staying off-property will still be able to enjoy complimentary access to the Society Hotel Spa on the event date (Saturday). Party festivities have a hard stop at 11PM for any off-property guests, per Society Hotel rules.

Note: Hood River (OR) is just across the river from Bignen (WA) via toll bridge. The trip is quick & easy, but it does require a $2 cash tariff in each direction.



The Columbia River Gorge was designated a National Scenic Area — the largest in America — for good reason.

You’d be hard-pressed to find vistas as stunning as these. At the western end of the Gorge, the view from Crown Point is a front-row seat to the mighty Columbia as its unfurls and cuts through the Cascade mountains. From there dozens of awe-inspiring waterfalls spill from basalt cliffs, lining the Historic Columbia River Highway, like the famous Multnomah, Bridal Veil and Latourell falls. The landscape seems to grow bigger, grander and brighter as it rolls east.Bring your sense of adventure because the Gorge is made for exploring. Walk along a waterfront, discover hidden waterfalls, follow the wildflowers at Rowena Crest or challenge yourself with a trek up Dog Mountain. Cycle the roads around The Dalles or in the Post Canyon mountain bike network. And it’s hard to resist water sports on the Columbia, especially when Hood River is known as the windsurfing capital of the world.But the Columbia River Gorge isn’t just spectacular scenery. There’s plenty of hand-crafted beer and farm-fresh dining too. Thanks to its unique geography, the Gorge boasts a world of wine — from pinot noir and chardonnay in the cool western hills, to tempranillo and syrah in the drier, sunnier east.See the Columbia River Gorge for yourself, and then you’ll understand all the hype.
