                  Location

                  Historic Timberline Lodge is a must see. Our cabin works great for large or small groups for winter skiing or summer wedding parties . Mt. Hood Ski Bowl is a wonderful place for wedding as well as Timberline Lodge and our cabin is a great base for either venues.

                  Mt Hood Ski Bowl is great winter time skiing, as well as fantastic summer time fun with horse back riding , alpine slide , Mt. Biking and Mt. Bike races. Again our cabin is a great place for Mt. Bike groups, Mt. Climbers , fishermen , hikers , skiers,sightseers. We are only one hour away from Hood River great place to visit year round. Trillium lake great for fishing, boating, hiking, and amazing view of Mt. Hood.Be sure to stop in at Volcanoe Cones home of the most famous icecream stand in all of Government Camp.

                   

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 1943

                  About the owner: I helped build this cabin when I was twelve with my family. My wife and I have raised five kids and enjoyed many years at our cabin during all seasons of the year. All of our kids are married with families who also enjoy the mountain.

                  Why the Owner Chose Government Camp:
                  Sixty nine years ago my dad along with his parents choose their property in Government Camp because of their love of the mountain. The cabin is tucked away in the woods yet close walking distance to everything the town has to offer. As well as it borders Forest Service land with easy access to a wonderful trail system.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
                  From Portland it is a short drive of 45 minutes and is within walking distance to Mt Hood Ski Bowl and just out the door to multiple hiking trails on Mt Hood. Walking distance to downtown Government Camp and short drive to historic Timberline Lodge. Activities include winter time downhill and cross country skiing, snowshoeing, snowmobiling and summer fishing, mountain biking, hiking and of course sightseeing.
