To our valued visitors and all Oregonians who rightfully consider Oregon’s historic Multnomah Falls Lodge one of your State’s natural treasures: In accordance with the recommendations from Oregon Governor Kate Brown, the Oregon Health Authority, Multnomah County Commission; and the guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and the World Health Organization (WHO), Multnomah Falls Lodge will close immediately.
During these tough times, tough decisions are made. And we thank Oregon Governor Brown and Multnomah County Chair Deborah Kafoury for their leadership. Over the past few weeks, we have successfully operated the Lodge under enhanced health and safety protocols and enacted several precautionary measures to keep our guests and employees safe and healthy. However, as Governor Brown outlined in her Executive Order, restaurants in Oregon are now limited to drive through, take-out and/or delivery service. As a result, our historic restaurant, gift shop and Espresso stand will close until the coronavirus (COVID19) threat has passed. We will continue to abide by the recommendations of our state officials until the statewide mandate on restaurants is lifted. When that happens, we look forward to seeing you again.
We will also continue to monitor the ever-changing events associated with this global pandemic and respond accordingly. As you know, the Eagle Creek fire was the last time Multnomah Falls Lodge was forced to close. But as stewards of your historic building, we understand and support the Governor’s Executive Order and agree with her when she says, “working together, we are stronger together, even if it’s in ways we never thought possible."
We will update you if things change.
In addition, our online Gift Shop remains open and is available for purchases. For every $50 gift card purchase, we will load an extra $10 on it for you to spend when the Lodge re-opens.https://www.multnomahfallsgifts.com
As always, all managers and employees at Multnomah Falls Lodge continue to maintain the health and safety of all of our visitors and we keep those affected by the coronavirus in our thoughts.
Sincerely, Multnomah Falls Co. Inc
