Overview

About the property

Cabin, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, Sleeps 8

Heading to Mt. Hood for some winter adventure? Stay in this lovely home and you won't have far to go to enjoy the snow - it's just one minute from Summit Ski Area, 10 minutes from Timberline Lodge, and 15 minutes from Mt. Hood Meadows.

With a fabulous location, you can spend less time driving around and more time on the slopes! This area also has amazing summertime activities, such as boating on Timothy Lake 20 miles south, hiking and biking in the surrounding wilderness, and fishing in the Sandy River. This home, right in the middle of Government Camp, is an ideal place to experience everything the area has to offer.

This two-bedroom, two-bathroom home has a unique shape with an efficient floorplan and just enough space for eight guests (including four adults) to sleep. Both the upper and lower floors have sitting areas - downstairs, you'll find a nice gas fireplace, and upstairs is a more modern area with a large cable TV, a selection of DVDs, a Wii gaming system, and more.

The full kitchen may not have a lot of extra room, but it does have everything you may need to cook for your guests. And with so many excellent eateries nearby, including the incredible Mt. Hood Brewing Company, you may want to eat out instead!

The home has one queen bed downstairs, a double bed upstairs, and five futons that can fold out into comfortable places to sleep. A laundry area in the upstairs bathroom even provides a place to wash your clothes during extended trips. Everyone will be cozy here, and you will have great opportunities to share stories and laugh together.

This house is perfect for a home base during a ski trip. Government Camp has restaurants and a grocery store, and the much-larger Sandy is just a 30 minute drive away.

With its prime location near the slopes and its ability to accommodate large groups, this fabulous vacation home is an excellent way to live in style and comfort during your getaway!

About Vacasa, OR - Mt Hood / Hood River Office

Thanks for considering a Vacasa home! We provide full-service management for privately owned vacation homes, and like to think that we offer our guests the best of both worlds: the unique experience of staying in a one-of-a-kind vacation home, with the peace of mind that comes from knowing that the home you book for your special vacation is cared for by professional housekeepers and property managers.

<br>

<br>

Vacasa began in 2009, simply because our founder and CEO Eric wanted to find a better way to share his wife’s family’s summer home in Long Beach, Washington with guests as a vacation rental. Eric and his early team worked to build Vacasa on the premise that local employees can do what they love most (taking care of guests, homeowners, and properties), while the hands-off tasks of vacation rental management—things like marketing, filing taxes, and maintaining a website—could be handled by a specialized central support team.

<br>

<br>

Our passion is connecting travelers with the unique experience of staying in a vacation home, and we would be honored to be your host. Please contact us with any questions about this home—our team is standing by!

Great family-friendly house (see note regarding snow and very young children/baby gear challenges)

  • 4 of 5

The house itself was well kept and as described. Plenty of movies, games (wii and board games) and fantastic, large, lounging space (ideal for large parties of friends/families!) Location is wonderful - right at the main entrance to town, close to gas station, but still private/remotely snug in the woods! Several "pros" and we had a good stay overall! Our only noteworthy "con" is that foot access to the house can be a significant issue. Customers should be aware of snow condition before renting, especially if there are young children involved (strollers/baby-seats to lug up/down!!) or if anyone in the party has any slight difficulty walking/handling uneven surfaces. Although we were comfortable during our stay, entrance to house (walk from from driveway) was not shoveled (upon arrival we found hard, compacted ice and snow over barely visible footpath and steps to the house.) We managed our way in, but had difficulty reaching administrator (Vacasa) the following day (a business day) in order to request assistance. Once we were able to contact someone at the office, Vacasa was indeed helpful in sending a local worker (who carved steps out of the compacted ice) in order to minimize the issue. (Note we expected snow - we are used to it - this was not an "average amount from recent snow fall", this was old, compacted snow from the season.) Lastly, we have mentioned in our feedback to Vacasa that they should provide trash and recycling dumpsters since we did not really have a proper location to dispose trash during our stay (a minor issue.) In summary, great house for large families/groups with older children/teens!! (note: no dishwasher!!)

Bear Creek Cabin.. the perfect cozy and economical option for a small group

  • 5 of 5

We truly enjoyed our stay at bear Creek Cabin. For our needs (a place to stay for a wedding at Timberline) it was perfect place to stay. Easy to find in Government Camp. We mostly hung out in the small are la downstairs but there is a much larger room upstairs for a larger group to congregate.

Amazing Winter Stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at the cabin and can't wait to go again. It was so cozy and an easy walk into Government Camp. Everything was clean, there were tons of blankets and pillows and we really loved the upstairs area with the multiple futons and chairs to lounge on. It was very kid friendly which is huge for us since we had three small children with us. We had a blast sledding down the driveway and playing in the snow. There are cabins close by but we didn't see anyone. Everything was perfect and we can't wait to go back!
