      Romantic weekend getaway

      The Balch Hotel is a quick 13 minute drive from the The Dalles. Super friendly staff. Quiet and peaceful outdoor sitting areas, great for sipping a bottle of wine with someone special. Some rooms have air conditioning and their own bathrooms. Delicious food, beverages and dessert available to purchase. Nostalgic, charming and romantic.

      Durfur, OR The Balch

      This is a small rural town in OR that has an ag based economy and is an alternative to The Dalles and a town one can stop off on the way to Madtas or Bend, OR. I am here for a gravel bike race that is starting off in Durfur, OR. The staff is lovely, very helpful. There is a dinner menu that while limited, is creative and requires culinary know how. The hotel also has an outdoor patio with heat and string lighting. The view of Mt. Hood is spectacular. There is also nice star gazing. The hotel also offers some unusual services, including tarot card readings, meditation, Reiki Energy Treatment, Chakra Balancing, Gem-Reiki Therapy at the hotel spa. Last, most rooms do not have a bathroom, given that this hotel was built in 1907. Instead, there are shared bathrooms. In our stay, the people were polite and efficient, so, this was not an issue.

    • 10.0.Exceptional

      There's really nothing lacking at this place if you're cool with vintage. Excellent service. Excellent continental breakfast. We stayed in August in a room with no AC, so it was slightly warm in the afternoon, but cooled down nicely at night. The shared bathrooms are a bit of a pain because you have to take your room key with you to the potty in the middle of the night. Not all guests will knock before entering a closed door, so always double lock the bathroom! It's not well advertised, but they do NOT allow pets or children. Be aware of this before booking!
