About Kalama Harbor Lodge Grand Opening

Kalama Harbor Lodge Grand Opening

On this day, the bagpipes will sound, we’ll cut a big ribbon at 10 a.m., and we’ll open the doors wide to all for the first time, so let’s celebrate!


We open at 7 a.m. for breakfast in the Pub! Or have lunch, dinner or a late-night snack at the Pub; we’re open ‘til 1 a.m.


In our Old 97 event space, we’ll have free live music for all ages from 7 p.m. ‘til 10 p.m. from Irish foursome Biddy on the Bench.

We’ll have a just-for-fun opening weekend Passport stamp available. Likewise, the five new Passport location stamps will be available, which can be gathered at: The Cloud Bar, Harbor Lounge, Ahles Point Cabin, The Pub, and the Hotel stamp – the last one of which will have a clue at the front desk.

Check out Cloud Bar atop the Hawaiian-inspired building, open ‘til 1 a.m., and try the signature tropical drinks: the Three Rocks Rum Daiquiri and the Mai Tai – or the onsite brewery’s first ale, Pau Hana Gold. 


Outside, past Kalama’s landmark totem poles, take the riverside path to Ahles Point Cabin, our small bar warmed by fireplaces, open ‘til midnight.


While the 40 guestrooms are booked for opening weekend, plan your future stay by making reservations now. You’ll have your own lanai, with chairs – and most have river views, so sit and watch for diving osprey and freighter ships.



About Biddy on the Bench

Biddy on the Bench

The versatile combination of banjo, guitar, mandolin, tin whistle and four part vocal harmony lendsitself equally to high-energy Irish rebel songs and shanties, lively session tunes, and mournful gaelicballads. Grounded primarily in the folk/traditional style of Irish music pioneered by such bands as "The Dubliners", "Planxty", and "The Bothy Band", Portland's own "Biddy on the Bench" breathes lifeand authenticity into old standbys of the genre and lesser-known tunes alike.In the winter months of 2013, Biddy on the Bench was formed. The members include KevinGrgurich, Nick Frey, Noah Cotter, Casey Dyer, Tristan Cormack, and Trevor Cormack. Hailing fromCleveland, Ohio, Kevin, Nick, Tristan, and Trevor have been playing music together for close to adecade. Noah and Casey are Oregon natives and bring with them years of experience with Irishmusic. Together, Biddy on the Bench approaches each song, each melody, with a passion for themusic and sharing it with others.
