Property description

The Trails Out Lodge is located in the heart of the alpine village at the base of the Glade Trail (hence the name). It was constructed in 1936 for the Fred Van Dyke family, one of the first operators of Timberline Lodge. The cabin features a knotty pine interior and a majestic stone fireplace reminiscent of the stonework at Timberline Lodge.

The main level contains the living room / dining area, kitchen, utility room, a bedroom, a half-bathroom, and the main entry foyer. The upstairs contains two more bedrooms and a bathroom with shower. There have been multiple improvements throughout the years to make the cabin more comfortable, convenient, and safe without sacrificing the work done by the skilled craftsman of the 1930's.

The roads to the cabin and parking at the cabin are plowed during winter. There is parking for two cars on site with nearby public parking available for additional vehicles.

The cabin has plenty of yard area for children to play and just up the road at the dead end is a great winter play area with a hill ideal for inner-tubing. Access to the trails along the north side of Government Camp are accessed through this area and lead to a large network of hiking/cross country skiing/snowshoeing trails. Trails to south side of the village can be access by walking over the Multorpor bridge. These trails give easy access all the way to Trillium Lake and beyond.

Village shops and restaurants are only a two minute walk away, ideal for be able to leave the car at the cabin when doing culinary and retail exploring.

The cabin is stocked with board games and videos. The Govy General Store (200' away) rents DVD's and sells items to make your trip even more enjoyable.

While at the cabin don't forget to check out the Mt. Hood Museum and Cultural Center as well as the Arts Cabins.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1996

About the owner: Welcome to the Trails Out Lodge. We offer a well maintained, clean, comfortable cabin high in the Northern Oregon Cascades village of Government Camp. Our family has owned cabins on Mt. Hood since 1916 and because of this we have spent years living, recreating and exploring in the area. We know Mt. Hood's history and what it currently has to offer. The cabin was built in the 1930's and maintains the look and feel of that era. From the knotty pine interiors to the large stone chimney this is the type of cabin one might see in the background of an L.L. Bean or Eddie Bauer catalog. Throughout the years though, just the right amount of tasteful and sometimes hidden upgrades have been incorporated to make it warm, convenient and safe. Our goal is to offer families the opportunities to make lasting treasured memories that can be kept and enjoyed for years to come. Our guests are amazed what a visit to our cabin will do for their soul. During the darkest grayest rainy days of winter we offer an escape to a winter wonderland of beautiful white fluffy snow. We are a family owned operation and do all the visit arrangements, final cleaning, and maintenance ourselves. When you call us you will be talking to the owners of the cabins. We take great pride in our lodging and encourage you to contact us by telephone or e-mail with any questions you may have. If when you call we can't satisfy your desired reservation dates we will do our best to give you suggestions on who else to call. We look forward to working with you.

Why the Owner Chose Government Camp, OR, USA:
When looking for property we knew we wanted to purchase a cabin that was located in Mt. Hood's alpine village. Government Camp is the closest village to the high alpine outdoor activities we enjoy doing. It also has a great little business district that meets all of our needs while staying at the cabin as I'm sure it will for our guests too. The cabin is conveniently located in the heart of the Village. Walking to the shops, restaurants, or museum, is easy 2-3 minute walk. The cabin is also within a very short walking distance to winter play hills, recreation areas, and miles of backcounty hiking, cross county skiing and shoeing trails. Located at nearly the 4000' elevation of Mt Hood the cabin is within one half mile of Ski Bowl East (Multorpor) with its winter and summer recreation. The cabin is also just minutes from year 'round skiing at Timberline Lodge and from Mt Hood Meadows ski resort.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
When we first saw the interior of this cabin we knew it was what we had been looking for. Its knotty pine interior, large stone fireplace, handmade kitchen cabinets with custom vintage hardware, and the multi-paned windows make the cabin feel the way an alpine cabin should feel.
