A Few Things to Know When Booking Private Events at the Gorge White House
  • We prefer that larger private events begin in late afternoon (5:30 or later) so that our business may be closed to the general public.  This gives you unrestricted access to all of our facilities and full staff attention!

  • All events must conclude no later than 10:00 in the evening due to the Hood River County Noise Ordinance and our own “good neighbor policy”.

  • There is a $250 per hour or fraction there of charge for events not concluded by 10:00 pm!

  • Alcoholic beverages must be purchased through The Gorge White House.  Not to worry, we have a huge selection of wines and beer.  Always a case discount – even on mixed cases!  We serve beer and wine only.  This is an additional cost, with a required beverage minimum.

  • Food preparation and service must be done by licensed caterers.  We have a list of local caterers that we can provide you.  We have available a limited cold appetizer /finger food menu by request.  This is an additional cost.

  • The west porch facing the patio garden serves as a stage area for announcements or music.  Space is limited and a “rock n roll” type band will not fit in the space!

  • Save 10 percent on your rental fee if you book your event Monday through Thursday on non-holiday week days!

  • Remember, we are an outdoor venue and a working farm.


  • We have fields of seasonal flowers on site that are available on a u-cut basis.  Make your own bouquets!  Prices vary.

  • We can also recommend several local florists.

Other Available Services:

  • We have dinner place settings (stainless utensils, glass plates and cloth napkins) at a small rental fee of $5.00 per setting.

  • Licensed beverages servers available at an additional fee.


  • Please refer to the calendar link below to see if our facility is available.

Wedding events must be booked through a professional event planner. The majority of our weddings are destination weddings where the bride and groom are not necessarily familiar with local caterers, musicians, rental businesses, florists and other service providers. A professional planner, whether used for "day of" set up or to manage all the details of your wedding, can help to make sure that your wedding day is less stressful and everything goes according to plan! We have many local planners who can work with you and your budget to make sure every detail is handled from the set-up of the ceremony site through cutting the cake! We have listed several who have worked at our venue in the past below. You are not required to use one of these professionals, so if you have someone else you would like to hire, please do so!
