Cabin, 4 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, Sleeps 12
With an eco-friendly design, sustainable craftsmanship, mountain views, and a prime location just steps away from the slopes at SkiBowl, this Government Camp home offers a unique take on lodge living, along with all the perks you'd expect from a Mount Hood vacation rental. With two living areas, a dining hall, and four bedrooms plus a loft housing 12 guests, this is an ideal retreat for large groups looking for an unparalleled mountain experience.
Once the first restaurant in Government Camp, this historic lodge has since be refurbished using locally sourced and upcycled wood to create a modernized, green environment while maintaining a traditional mountain lodge feel. Floor-to-ceiling wood panels and rustic decor reinforce the cabin-like ambiance of the home, along with the roaring gas fireplace that will keep you feeling cozy on those cold snowy nights.
The open layout and multiple common areas both encourage togetherness and camaraderie among your group and allow everyone to spread out and do their own thing. And you'll have plenty indoors to keep you entertained. While some may need to catch up on work emails (there's WiFi throughout), the others can play a game on the Wii, or watch a movie on Netflix or the DVD player. And don't forget CDs, there's a stereo and CD player too!
One of the most popular places to gather on vacation is naturally the kitchen. Spacious and fully stocked, this kitchen was made to handle large meals. There's plenty of prep room along the granite countertops, a brand new stove, all the kitchen essentials you could need, and even barstools at the eat-in bar so others can keep the chefs company while they prepare their masterpiece. Don't be too daunted by the post-meal mess - there's a dishwasher to make clean-up easier. Serve up your meals family style in the dining hall at the elongated wooden table that serves up to 10.
Four bedrooms in addition to the loft will sleep 12 vacationers comfortably. The stunning craftsmanship continues in the bedrooms with locally made beds from Cotton Cloud lined with organic linen sheets for a rejuvenating night's rest (note that the mattresses on these custom, hand-made beds are a little firmer than most, and without a box spring). Upstairs you'll find a bedroom with a queen bed and a second bedroom with two sets of twin bunks, along with a cozy TV room with two futons that can be used as additional sleeping arrangements. Back on the main floor lays another queen bedroom and the fourth bedroom, which holds a twin bunk bed. The lodge provides two full baths.
When it's time to head out, skiers and boarders will already be "home" with the slopes of SkiBowl just a short walk from the front door. Head further up the road via the Glade Trail on snowshoe or cross-country skis (or the 15 minute drive by car) to Timberline Lodge where a hot chocolate and a dose of Oregon history awaits. There's snow tubing, terrain parks, and sleigh rides in the winter, and in the summer make sure to check out Mt. Hood Adventure Park's zip lines, alpine slide, rock wall, mini golf, mountain bike parks and more. There are miles upon miles of trails for hikers and bikers to explore, and fisherman will find plenty of steelhead in the Sandy and Salmon rivers close by.
Whether you're a ski club, on a work retreat, gathering with extended family, or a group of friends on a ski-venture, this unique Mt. Hood vacation rental offers the perfect amount of space and privacy to accommodate your group. With a unique layout and design and a stellar location, this Mt. Hood vacation rental will be one to remember.

Great spot for families. The location can't be beat and the downstairs living area is a perfect spot for large groups to gather, cook, eat and play games. Cozy, rustic and fun.
Rustic AND comfortable
Rustic as expected, yet very comfortable with only a few minor problems. Futon beds are good. Temperature inside was comfy both day and night despite freezing nights.
The house is perfect for a big family!
We have stayed there twice with our kids and grandkids. There is lots of room and space for everyone. The main room is amazing, with a wall of big windows that look out on the village and snow! There is a huge long table there that goes along the windows, that makes an awesome space for doing crafts together, playing games, or just everyone hanging out. The kitchen is really nice with lots of dishes and cookware, gas stove and granite counters. You can walk to town in less than a block. The house makes you feel like you are kind of stepping back in time, with all knotty pine floors and walls. A wonderful gas fireplace is cozy and warm, with glass all around it so you can see the fire from 3 sides. The couches sit around it, which is a cozy place to hang out too. Upstairs there is a nook with double bed that the kids love to hang out in and play. The price was reasonable for during the week- it was really high on weekends and Christmas break. We may make this a family tradition. There was enough snow for kids to sled every day, and across the street there is a trail through the woods with a cool bridge that goes over a creek. It took us about 10 minutes to get up to Timberline, which was awesome! If you like a rustic feel of a cabin, lots of space, and lots of windows and light, this house is amazing!
Perfect base camp for an adventure in the woods!

Great location but
This cabin has a great location right in downtown Government Camp that makes it really convenient. It has a great cabin-y feel and an open living/dining area for a group. The beds however are rock hard and I'm pretty sure the pillows are also vintage. Would def recommend bringing your own!
