Property description

Welcome to the Middle Fork Ranch. Nestled in the upper Hood River Valley, you'll find a warm and inviting farmhouse ideal for family and friends. A perfect place to enjoy privacy in a casual, and relaxed atmosphere. Watch the alpaca as they graze in the grass and curiously engage your presence; walk or bicycle along the local roads and forested trails; or enjoy dining el fresco as the sun sets on Mt. Hood.

Forke Media is ideal for families as well as small groups of friends. Activities include walking the 'secret' trails on the property, riding the zip line from the tree fort or reading in the shade of the rope hammock or hanging in the tree swing. Horseshoes, badminton or picking lavender or wildflowers are offered and always welcome. The fire pit makes for simple evening pleasures.

The garden's bounty supplies fresh organic berries during the summer months of June, July and August. Enjoy ripe strawberries, blueberries or raspberries freshly picked or atop a homemade shortcake (we've a simple recipe that's easy to make and unsurpassable, we think!)

The Middle Fork offers privacy and comfort with its accommodations. The master bedroom is located upstairs and offers a queen bed; the adjacent bath has a pedestal sink and soaker tub/shower. Also situated on the upper level off the family/media room is the second bedroom. Ideal for adults and children alike, it has a comfortable double bed and an oversized twin bunk. The main living room is a comfortable space that also doubles as a sleeping area with a queen sleeper sofa. The lower bath, with shower, accommodates the downstairs. The main living area also has a twin sleeper for an additional guest, if needed.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1997

About the owner: Michael and Kathryn spent six years raising their boys, now 12 and 14, at Middle Fork Ranch. As a family, they enjoyed a variety of outdoor activities with their yellow lab CC while living at Middle Fork Ranch. Activities included: hiking and camping, downhill and cross country skiing; trail running to the river, and enjoying small gatherings with family and friends.

Why the Owner Chose Parkdale:
Realizing that growth and development would soon take its toll on the south side of Mt. Hood, in the mid 1990's Michael began his search in the upper valley for a place to retreat. The property was purchased prior to 1998, and he and Kathryn soon began the process of remodeling the original structure to what it is today.

The Unique Benefits at this Farmhouse:
The wrapped porch offers the perfect indoor outdoor connection to the farmhouse and open space. Children play for hours, whether swinging from the willow tree, engaging in capture the flag on the open lawn, or walking the forested trails to the Middle Fork River. A short, scenic 20-minute drive to Hood River offers gourmet dining, wine tasting, shopping, water activities and more.
