Built in 1928 by French craftsman and renowned inventor August Guignard, the homestead at 1373 Barker Road featured acres of farms and orchards as well as manufacturing operations for the fruit grading equipment he pioneered. Today, that home is Seven Oaks Bed & Breakfast and it continues to be one of the finest historical homes in the nation.
The neighborhood is now characterized by scattered light industrial spaces and farms. Nestled here is Seven Oaks Bed & Breakfast and its two acres of lush gardens bordered by mature Douglas Firs that provide complete privacy and the feel of country living. Views of Mt. Hood and Mt. Adams provide a dramatic backdrop for serene and peaceful seating nooks and gardens within the meticulously kept grounds.
Located outside of the bustle of downtown Hood River in an area called "The Heights," Seven Oaks is conveniently close to, but peacefully detached from, the "city life" of Hood River. Here you can have the best of both worlds. Just two miles away is a small shopping center featuring Rosauer's Market, Hood River's finest market specializing in local, gourmet, and organic food and produce.
Nearby is the majestic Columbia River Gorge, renowned for world-class windsurfing and kite-boarding, micro and hard cider breweries, mountain biking, horseback riding, wineries, and more. Ample storage for your recreational equipment available on premises. A favorite among wedding guests, Seven Oaks is the perfect location for your gathering or retreat.
