About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 1 Baths, Sleeps 10

This funky Government Camp vacation rental is just the cutest little cabin in the woods; a perfect vacation spot for your next excursion to the Mt. Hood area. With its retro ski-lodge theme, you'll feel more like you've booked a stay in the Alps! Part of the Government Camp Loop, this home offers amazing access to the beautiful and wild outdoors and brings you ample space for a large group of your loved ones.

Your adorable Government Camp cabin rental is ready for you and your favorite people to kick back and relax, or prepare for an epic outdoor adventure.

There's Wi-Fi to check snow reports and hiking trail conditions, and for the night time, a flatscreen TV with a DVD player. Did we mention the wood-burning stove for extra coziness during the cold winter nights and the newly finished deck?

The full-kitchen is snug but will surprise you with all it has to offer: all the necessary appliances, and even a few extras like a blender and a coffee maker. Get the whole family involved by sitting them at the window-seats to chop and grate and stir.

Mt. Hood National Forest is ready for your exploration: skiing - both alpine and Nordic; snowshoeing; hiking, biking, and cross-country running. Or take it a little slower and admire the wildflowers or watch for wildlife and birds. Enjoy Government Camp's local eateries and breweries. Any season, with your family or your friends, this little Mt. Hood chalet is a great spot to enjoy the mountains in all their splendor.

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.



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.



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!

Good location in town

  • 4 of 5

This was a good location if you like to be right in town. We rented this unit and the Flying Stage Main Lodge. There is a lot going on there but it's nice to be close to everything. The unit was cabin-like and well used but still nice. Parking was ample. The are quite a few stairs to get to this unit. We were disappointed that the cleaners were still there when we were supposed to check in. They were an hour late and we had people standing around waiting to bring stuff in. Apparently there was a mix-up with the cleaning staff.

Ok but needs some updates and new photos

  • 2 of 5

Great location and spot but disappointed with how the photos lead you to believe you're getting more than what's actually there. There is no deck! sliding glass door is nailed shut and there is no deck. Also no dishwasher in the house and no garbage disposal in the sink and the giant TV doesn't have satellite or cable. Beds were good and the wood fireplace was a nice touch. I'd consider renting again if the updates were made and it actually had a deck.

Decent House / Dangerous when Snowing

  • 2 of 5

Dangerous walk way due to lack of shoveling - no pathway- and an overall lack of maitanenance to property.

Owner's Response: We apologize for the inconvenience the snow caused this guest. The walkway is regularly shoveled, but due to the higher snowfall this winter it was difficult to keep up.

Great Experience

  • 5 of 5

This place was great for us as we had a larger group. It's located a few minutes walk from the heart of Government Camp and the front room looks at the main street and you can see Ski Bowl in the background. We had a great time and can't wait to come back.

Good potential but needs some love

  • 2 of 5

Great location, quick walk to town and wonderful views of the mountain and as well as all of the activity through town. We thought the house looked so quaint and cute in the pictures but to be honest we were pretty disappointed.

This place is dirty and needs a very thorough cleaning. There is mildew on the bathroom ceiling, dead flies behind the dressers, stains on most of the duvet covers , all of the plates in the cabinet were dirty with caked on food, the refrigerator is old and missing on of the large drawers, there is no can opener, no spatula, dull knives, a missing cover for the crockpot (we planned a meal around it), a big safety concern -- the top bunk is missing its rail so no kids could use it, there is no curtain in the top master room which makes it annoyingly bright at 6am, one of the bedroom's claims to be a queen but measured a full, there are also random old & dusty things in the closets (lamps, wires, musty blankets, old ski clothes). The biggest inconvenience was that the dryer was broken. Unfortunately we found this out after we did a load of laundry. We called Vacasa and due to the timing/busy New Year holiday they could not get anyone up to fix it. They offered to reimburse us the money if we went in town to use the laundromat. Vacasa was able to locate a can opener and couple shovels that were missing so we could shovel the walk/stairs.

Also, the deck is torn down so it probably makes sense to chance the house description since that is no longer a selling feature. And as a courtesy, I would recommend a mention in the house description that no wood is provided for the stove. Not a huge deal but would have been a nice heads up so that we could have prepared better.

The kitchen is small but workable. Bedrooms warm up quickly with their own thermostats and the loft is a nice addition to the overall space. There is no main table and the one pictured in the photos was outside in the shed covered in ski wax, there is also an obnoxiously large television hanging above one of the couches-- which could be distracting when you are trying to watch a movie.

This is not the most expensive house at the mountain...I get it, but there seems to be a general lack of care for this place. A check list by housekeeping could alleviate some of these issues.

I have rented from both VRBO and Vacasa before with out any incidents. I'm just surprised by state of this house given the reviews. It definitely needs some love.
