Tour of McMenamins

Kalama Harbor Lodge & Port of Kalama

Meet: 100 Columbia (across from WareHouse 23)

Time: 9:44 a.m.

RSVP: Sam Mikel –  Let Sam know if you are willing to drive

Join us to tour the latest McMenamins property, Kalama Harbor Lodge, nestled between Kalama’s landmark totem poles and the marina at the Port of Kalama. Inspired by the Hawaiian heritage of John Kalama, the property is reminiscent of the Pioneer Inn in Lahaina, Maui, Hawaii. Whether in the Cloud Bar atop the building, with a birds-eye view and the signature Three Rocks Rum Daiquiri, or enjoying free live music in the Lounge before wandering out to a firepit alongside the river, you’re sure to feel the relaxation of an island vibe while taking in the beauty of the Pacific Northwest.

Directions: I-5 N for 26 Miles, Take Exit 27 toward Todd Rd/Port of Kalama; Left at Robb Road toward river (crosses under I-5); Right on DuPont (which curves left toward the river); Right on N Hendrickson Drive to 215 Hendrickson Drive.
