Historic Balch hotel
Columbia Gorge wedding venues and special events
Destination weddings close to home

We love to pamper our brides, grooms, and guests. Customer service is what we hang our hat on. Are you in love with the idea of an outdoor wedding but fearful of the weather? No need! In Dufur Valley you'll enjoy over 300 days of sunshine a year. That makes us the Sunniest Wedding Location in the Gorge!

Located just 1 hour 40 minutes East of Portland. We are surrounded by rolling fields of golden wheat and green alfalfa. Rooms are charming with character equal to that of 1907 elegance. Each room is individually furnished with period antiques. Your guests will love the hotel’s elegant atmosphere!
