This custom-built cedar cabin is four stories high and is located at the 4000 foot level of majestic Mt. Hood. The eastern exposure and large windows bathe the interior with natural light. The tall vaulted ceiling adds to the spacious feeling. A spiral staircase leads to the tower. It's a favorite area for viewing the alpenglow on Mt. Hood, enjoying a glass of wine, planning the next day's activities, reading or taking a nap. You are in the tree tops, eye-to-eye with the ravens. It's everyone's favorite spot.
We hired Jerry Gomes as our builder, not only because of his excellent reputation, but also because he was in charge of the quality restoration projects at historic Timberline Lodge. His touch is evidenced by the custom Timberline front door with its handmade wrought iron hardware and rams head knocker. He hand-selected the blue pine used for the interior. Since the cabin was built it has been repeatedly updated and meticulously maintained.
On a warm day you can open the windows to allow the pine-scented alpine air to waft in. To take the chill away you can light a fire in the wood stove or simply turn up the thermostat for central forced air heat.
Summer or winter, outdoor activities, total relaxation, and lifelong memories are a certainty.
My father moved to Mt. Hood in the late 1930's. He owned and operated a ski shop in the winters and conducted horse pack trips around Mt. Hood in the summers. In 1948 he married my mother and, as they say, the rest is history. I grew up in Government Camp. I am fortunate to have met and married my soul mate (pictured) who loves the mountain as much as I do with all the year-round recreational opportunities it has to offer. Now our children and grandchildren look forward to their trips to the mountain to play, breathe the alpine air, and feel more relaxed than ever in the high altitude. Gary and I own the Lawrence Galleries in Portland, Sheridan in the wine country and at Salishan Resort on the coast. We now have returned to live in Government Camp, so we are available to handle requests you may have.
Gary and Signe Lawrence purchased this cabin in 1986
The cabin is built land that has been in the family since the 1930's. I grew up in the shadows of Mt. Hood, learned to ski on the nearby slopes, and hike most of the trails on the mountain. It is a recreational wonderland. Those fortunate enough to experience this place develop memories to last a lifetime.
The cabin is a five minute walk from the Government Camp town center as well as the Mt. Hood National Forest Service boundary. By car or shuttle it is minutes away from Timberling Lodge and three major ski resorts. In the summer, it is a beautiful area for backpacking, day hiking, kayaking, fishing, horseback riding, mountain biking and any manner of outdoor activities. An action park with an alpine slide, go carts, bungee jumping and other activities is available for entertaining kids. Wild flowers abound throughout the summer depending on the altitude and wild huckleberries may be picked in the late summer.
What a wonderful time we had hiking, boating and swimming. We did a hike every day. We all really enjoyed our stay and hope to come back again.
You will not be disappointed. Beautiful home in a beautiful area. Believe me, I am a very discerning consumer and the place is wonderful, fully furnished, with great owners.
We loved our 2 day stay at this cabin. My children made so many GOOD Memory's that they will have forever. This was the perfect family get a way. In walking distance to town. Love hearing the creek close by. We had just the perfect amount of snow. The cabin was maintained and had everything we needed. Thank you for letting us stay at your cabin.
I wanted you to know how much we enjoyed your Mt Hood cabin. We had a wonderful time & enjoyed all of the snow over Christmas. Your cabin was perfect for our family...plenty of room & perfectly located near all of the fun activities we enjoy. Thank you so much for making our Christmas a fun & memorable one!
We stayed at Raven's nest for 4 days and truly enjoyed the cabin. It was very well organized, appointed and maintained. Although we didn't get the snow we wanted, the cabin made up for it. There are plenty of places to relax, so works well for larger groups. We had 3 adults and a toddler and we seemed to only use half the space.
Signe was a great hostess; very good communication and just a nice woman.
The trail head is a few houses up the street and the village is a short walk away. We can't wait to go back with some friends when the snow arrives.
My family just returned from a terrific long weekend at Raven's Nest. Despite fairly low snow levels this year in many areas, the cabin was surrounded by snow and wintery trails to explore, just above Government Camp on the shoulder of Mt Hood. It is a beautiful place. While there we hike, skied, and explored the outdoors. But the best part was returning to that beautiful, warm and comfortable cabin for showers, food, music and good cheer! Great fun!
Raven's Nest is on the historic Blossom Trail ski network, 3 miles from Timberline Lodge. It is wtihin 1 mile of Ski Bowl, the nation's largest night skiing area, and 10 miles west of Mt. Hood Meadows ski area. The alpine village of Government Camp is about a 5 minute walk away.
