About the property

Cabin, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, Sleeps 6

This charming Government Camp Cabin features a nostalgic environment that will bring you back to the skiing heyday of the 70s!

The main level of the cabin has a fully stocked kitchen with a separate dining space that has wallpaper featuring some great ski themed photos from yesteryear. Both full bathrooms are featured on the main level, and the living room is a cozy space that is perfect for telling stories from the day on the slopes. There is a love seat and a sofa so there's plenty of space for everyone to gather together and sit around the propane stove that creates a classic cabin ambiance. This is a great spot to watch the snow fall! For those of you who prefer the modern amenities, there is a flatscreen cable TV with a DVD player that is perfect for watching your favorite films.

The cozy 1,000 sq. ft. cabin features three unique and creative bedrooms. The master bedroom is a large bedroom with a queen bed, lots of lighting and space for you to unpack your ski gear. The second bedroom has a classic ski cabin look and features a full bed and old-school skiis on the walls. The third bedroom has two twin beds and is perfect for the kids with room to play beneath the chalet-style decorations. All three bedrooms are on the second floor of the home.

Outside there's a private deck that's perfect for summer relaxing.

The home is located in the heart of Government Camp so it is convenient to all of the local hot spots and the great skiing available at SkiBowl, Timberline and Meadows! The Sandy River is nearby and offers all you can imagine for swimming, fishing and general hanging out, plus the adorable town of Hood River and the Columbia River Gorge is just 45 minutes' drive. No matter what your heart desires, the Wilcox Cabin is the perfect place to call your second home!

Note: The stairs are steep and the bedrooms are upstairs, bathrooms are on the main Level.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Thank you for a wonderful weekend at your cozy cabin. We enjoyed snowboarding at Ski Bowl Friday night and Mount Hood Meadows Saturday morning. But then it rained!! So we came home to soak in the hot tub and drink whiskey by the fire. (Owner note: there isn't really a is a propane stove...) What fun 60s/70s furnishings and a great location! Cheers.

Owner note: Unfortunately can't reproduce the guest's art work...sunshine...a couple happy smiley people and a turtle....

Great location, great little ski chalet

  • 5 of 5

Loved our stay. The house is definitely an older ski chalet, but the charm and funkiness is exactly what we were expecting. Perfect for our christmas together with my inlaws and our daughter.

Wilcox cabin

  • 5 of 5

This is a very cute little cabin which would be adequate for up to six people. The only minor issue is that the stairs to the upper bedroom area is narrow and a little steep so this could be an issue for older people aside from that my family throughly enjoyed our stay there.

Cabin Getaway

  • 4 of 5

Very easy to find, walk to almost everything. I am sure if you enjoy winter activities it will be even more fun. Price was reasonable, older person's or anyone with a disability may have some trouble, stairs are steep entering house, and all bedrooms are up a very narrow and steep staircase, use caution there also if little children are present.
