Where is it?
Cooper Spur Resort will be our home for the week. Surrounded by pine trees, beautiful meadows and pristine waters. You'll fall in love with its rustic mountain lodge, log cabins and farm to table restaurant.
Located in the midst of the majestic Mount Hood National Forest in Oregon, our base is close by to Hood River and Portland. Its perpetually snowy peak — crowned by eleven glaciers can be seen for miles.
Mount Hood is a 90 minute drive from Portland International Airport
