The Balch Hotel is an excellent spot for weddings, reunions, retreats, business meetings, bike trips, car clubs or a romantic getaway for two.
We’re centrally located where the Columbia River Gorge meets Oregon’s high desert, and with 350 days of sunshine, it’s a great getaway.
Join us at a place that inspires personal re-connection and rejuvenation ….
The expanse and simplicity of the country with wide open meadows, big sky and majestic mountain generates a clarity of mind and heart that settles the soul.
