Government Camp house description

New, just opened to renting. This historic, family-oriented Government Camp vacation home has been a family getaway since the 1940s. A well-loved escape, now your family can experience a stay at this comfortable, home-away-from-home near Oregon's snow covered Mt. Hood. With a location that backs up to National Forest land and the famous Glade Trail, if you take the bus up to Timberline Lodge, it's possible to ski all the way down to the back door of your mountain getaway!

Once you enter up the steps of this alpine-style cabin, you'll be treated to a warm and cozy interior. Dark wood paneling, comfortable furniture, and a large brick, wood burning fireplace give the living area a homey feel. Settle back for an evening of watching DVDs on the TV - you can have a family movie marathon complete with buttered popcorn! And afterwards, roast marshmallows in the fireplace for a dessert of s'mores.

In the kitchen, you'll have all of the major appliances needed for meal preparation. A refrigerator, stove-top/oven, and even a microwave. In the morning, a coffee maker and a toaster can assist with breakfast. While you're out skiing, you can make use of the slow cooker and return from a day on the slopes to the delicious smells of a beef stew wafting through the house! When it come time to clean up, you will need to do dishes by hand, but if all the kitchen helper's pitch in - you'll be back to watching movie in front of the fire in no time.

When it's time to turn in after a full day on the slopes, the master bedroom is on this main level. With a snuggly quilt-covered queen bed, bedside table, reading lamp, and a dresser, this room will leave it's occupants well-rested each morning. Also just off the kitchen is a nicely updated bathroom with a walk-in shower and lovely tile work.

Everyone else gets to head upstairs at night. A bunk room has four unique, custom twin beds built into the dormer-style roofline of this chalet cottage. 2 adults can pick out of the different bunks to snuggle in. From this room, a door will open out onto a Juliet-style balcony overlooking the Mt. Hood National Forest.

The third bedroom is also upstairs and its large space includes a full sized bed 1 built in twin bed and a play area for the kids. This bedroom's Juliet balcony looks out past the front of the house. This vacation home will comfortably sleep up to eight guests, so load up a couple of cars and head up to Mt. Hood for a wonderful, fun-filled, family ski trip!

Other amenities include a washer and dryer in the basement for guest use, a stereo with CD player, and a gas grill for nice weather cookouts. In addition, there are two bathrooms located throughout the home (with one shower, total).

Even though this character-filled ski chalet is comfortable and cozy, one of the best treats to a stay here is the stellar location! Mt. Hood Skibowl is only a half mile away with its 960 snow-covered skiable acres. Additionally, Summit Ski Area is only a mile from your door too. The second oldest continuous operating ski area in the US, you'll have a 4,000 foot elevation base for skiing and snowboarding, as well ad a snow play and tubing area for the kids.

Also right nearby is Timberline Lodge (just over six miles away), with its ski-home option, and Mt. Hood Meadows is only 11 miles from your door. And don't forget cross-country skiing and snowshoeing right near your getaway in the National Forest land.

Of course, Mt. Hood and Government Camp isn't just for snow sports! In nice weather there's hiking and biking, as well as a ride up the lifts at Timberline, followed by a scenic hike down amid the wildflowers. The area has many streams and rivers for fishing, and golfing at The Courses at Mt. Hood Village.

And on nights that you don't feel like cooking, there are a number of great dining choices year-round! Less than a mile away, the Glacier Haus is the place to go for a lunch of potato croquettes and pork belly sandwiches with chive aioli, and pickled red cabbage, on ciabatta. Dinner adds goulash, schnitzel, and pizzas to the mix - all in addition to an impressive number of local and imported beer. Other walkable eateries include Charlie's Mountain View, the Ice Axe Grill, and the Taco Shoppe. You can even make a stop at the Govy General Store and pick up a couple of organic, rotisserie chickens, soups, and other snacks for a meal back at the house.

This Government Camp vacation rental offers both warm and cozy accommodation and an ideal location for a ski getaway! And in summer, you're just steps away from scenic hiking and biking!

Special Offer: Enjoy discounted lift tickets from Mt. Hood Meadows when you reserve this home! Save up to $25 per adult ticket (discounted prices are only $49/adult). Upon booking your home, you will receive a special online offer to order discounted tickets.
