Historic Downtown McMinnville, OR
Serendipity Ice Cream, located in the historic Cook's Hotel, was renovated to its original turn-of-the century charm in the year 2000. Built in 1886, the grand hotel contained 28 rooms, a bridal chamber, billiard hall, parlor and a large dining room. Where Serendipity Ice Cream stands was originally the Hotels elegant entrance and lobby. With great attention to detail, this old-fashioned ice cream parlor brings back the sights, sounds and tastes of small town America and recalls life's simple pleasures.
Who We Are
Serendipity Ice Cream is owned and operated by Mid-Valley Rehabilitation, Inc. which was founded in 1966 by Margaret Reavis-Larsen and a group of parents and concerned individuals who wanted to provide employment training to adults with disabilities.
Mid-Valley is a private, non-profit organization, which provides employment, community inclusion services, residential support and transportation services to adults with developmental disabilities. Today we provide services to about 200 persons. Our intentions remain the same and are imbedded in our mission statement, to assist persons with disabilities to develop to their highest potential and achieve fulfilling lives.
