The best location in Government Camp- once you arrive, there is no need to drive! You can walk or take a short shuttle to Ski Bowl, or take the bus up to Timberline. There are 3 king bedrooms (2 upstairs, one downstairs) and a twin bunk room with an additional futon on the main level. Three full bathrooms are stocked with shampoo, conditioner, and soap. Two large flat screen TV's above each fireplace with Direct TV. Our game closet has numerous board games, card games, and coloring supplies to entertain the whole family! The kitchen is well stocked with everything you need to cook a gourmet meal, or just walk one block down to town and take advantage of the numerous dining options! There is a large hot tub on the back deck to relax after a day of skiing or hiking. Trail maps in the house will guide you on your summer or winter adventure in the Mt. Hood wilderness.

Anna Bar purchased this House in 2016

Great place but hot tub murky
The location and chalet were great. Comfy beds plenty of room and well stocked. Just bummed that hot tub was murky due to chemical imbalance. Place was chosen due to hot tub so that was disappointing. Would recommend staying at Collins Resort as just as close and they have onsite maintenance and outdoor heated pool and hot tub OR getting confirmation that hot tub in working order and if not credit should be given. Decor was great and even had a decorated Christmas tree. Nice flat screen tvs and plenty of games. Deck was a great enclosed snow play area for small children. We called it the "playpen".
Perfect for a family vacation, can't get a better location in Govy
We loved our stay in Government Camp, and the house was perfect for our extended family (seven adults and two children). The house is in great shape, had everything we needed, and was in absolutely the best possible location -- it is just steps to town and a short drive to all the amazing outdoor activities available in the Mt. Hood area, including the SkiBowl adventure park, the Timberline Lodge and amazing hikes and lakes.
We cooked several meals on the gas grill, and the hot tub on the back deck was a huge hit, especially with the kids. There's a large smart TV in the living room and the wifi was great (there's also a TV downstairs on the ground level in a small sitting area/entryway, but we didn't use that at all). There was a closet full of games, which was nice to have. It was also nice to just sit out on the deck among the pines, especially at sunset.
Worth noting that the house doesn't have AC, and we happened to be there during a very hot spell (it was 95 almost every day), but with windows open during the cool nights we were able to keep it nice inside (and we weren't there much during the day anyway). The ground-level bedroom suite was much cooler than the rest of the house, if you have someone who needs it to be on the colder side for sleeping.
A tip on food: We stopped at Costco near PDX upon arrival, as the nearest full grocery is about 15 minutes from the house, and while the grocery in Govy has most of what you might need, it has a small selection and it's on the expensive side. Lots of restaurant/bar options in Govy and nearby.
Lastly, the owner is fantastic. Very responsive, very nice, very flexible. We'd love to come back in the winter for some skiing! Thank you!
It worked for our group
We sure missed the shuffle board table a very little deck furniture. Other than that it was great
Let It Snow❄️
A wonderful retreat !
Great place to stay for family fun times
Lots of space for a big family and very close to everything! Timberline and Skibowl within 10 minutes and govt camp just a short stroll away. Chalet is very nice and well taken care of.
Beautiful, well-appointed and convenient
This is a beautiful home that is within walking distance to shops, restaurants and the bus up to Timberline. It is well appointed with everything you will need for your stay. The hot tub was an added plus. Would definitely stay here again.
