West Cascade is both a beautiful community neighborhood just west of Downtown and a commercial hub not far from I-84. It is the gateway to the western Hood River wineries and the home of many Hood River service companies, company headquarters, office space, hotels, restaurants, and stores.
On the north side of I-84, along the shore of the Columbia River, are several river’s edge lodging options, including the Historic Columbia Gorge Hotel, which sits along a waterfall pouring about 90 feet down to the river below.
A skate part and Frisbee-golf course add to the family fun of West Cascade, where it seems a new family home is going up every day. West Cascade has seen many changes for the best in recent years as Hood River’s population has expanded to the west. The neighborhood is livable, clean, and safe, with quick access to just about anything you could want or need.
