It has been awhile since I visited the historic Timberline Lodge but recently I joined a group of friends to do just that. Our visit included a stop at the Government Camp area first. I was unaware that there was a free interpretive center/information center there in addition to a few hotels and restaurants. (Worth the stop). I usually scoot... More

Wow. To say Timberline Lodge Ski Area has spectacular views would be an understatement. It's always a thrill for me to ski the glacier with majestic Mt. Hood in the background. As far as the skiing goes, expect fast lifts and long runs, most of which are very intermediate. Tip- don't miss having an après ski beverage at Timberline Lodge.... More

I made reservations Timberline Lodge in earlySeptember and called on our day of arrival to make sure everything was set. After being sent to the same recording over and over, I finally got someone. I was told in a very non-caring way, that there was no reservation. I called later and spoke to someone else who said my reservation was... More

Really enjoyed a day visit to the Timberline Lodge. Just below 6000 feet we left the Portland rain for sun above the cloud line. The lodge is grand but still very quaint. The beautiful St Bernard greeted us in the lobby. Had a really nice lunch in the second level bar area. Main floor restaurant is buffet style (not my... More

This mountain lodge and National Historic Landmark is in a stunning location on the south side of Mt Hood and sits at an elevation of 5,960 feet (1,817 m), within the Mount Hood National Forest. There is a heated spa, 3 restaurants, and miles of hiking and biking trails. Do keep in mind it was built over seventy-five years ago,... More

My husband and older son really loved it here, but my youngest son, who is a novice, couldn't ski the slope. As there is nothing much to do beside ski here, he was stranded. The best parks are closed to the public for summer camps, unfortunately.

This lodge was built during the depression in about 18 months. That alone is amazing, but when you go inside and see the craftsmanship you will be pleasantly surprised. The banisters on the stairs are hand carved with very fine details - beautiful. We went to the lodge because I am a huge fan of "The Shining", we found out... More

Timberline Lodge was built in 1939 and is still used year round. There are three restaurants on site. It is literally half way up the mountain so the drive alone is worth it. The views are amazing! We had lunch in the Rams Head bar located on the mezzanine level. We both had the loaded potato with chill and a... More
