There is no place with the history and stories to be told in the Northwest than the WPA built Timberline Lodge. It takes you to another time and place on the amazingly beautiful slopes of Mt. Hood. Rooms are classic and the food in the dinning room is top notch NW.

The perfect place atop the mountain. The lodge is beautiful. There's a tour but feel free to wander around yourself. Drop in at the bar and have a beer, tea or try the hot chocolate - too die for.

We have enjoyed many visits to Timberline, and many of the brunch buffets. Unfortunately one bad experience has soured things for us. We took Japanese guests there in Septemberr, and had a great time until we went to the Wy'East gift shop. Shop is very nice, but when we got home we found a $35 hat we had paid for... More

if your a Shining fan, then this is a must see location. The hotel is an amazing building, and the common space is so big and welcoming. The drive up is not as long as we thought.

We'd visited the Timberline once before but never stayed at the hotel. After reading the history of the place I put it on the bucket list for a future trip. We got a small room with a view of Mt Hood. The place is loaded with character down to the carvings on the banister poles. The pub/ restaurant was just... More

I was a leading a day tour of the region and we stopped here. While the was little snow, the view and the lodge are worth the visit. The architectural style is great, very WPA. Its amazing to all that craftmanship down by unemployed men who had no skills in building, just unemployed men trying to earn money to survive... More

The location is certainly good but it was not as expected. The Cabin s quite small and I feel it is very overpriced. There is no breakfast also. If you're doing in Summer or fall you can stay outside in other hotels which are better. The carpets in the passage and room were smelling terribly and even the shower had... More

The Timberline Lodge Tour is free. It is led by a Ranger and is excellent. In just visiting the Lodge, you only see its beauty. Taking the free tour unlocks the history and details of the lodge. Example: The door knocker is made of Black Iron. Fashioned by workers from scrap metal. The rock used is dense Lava Rock transported... More

The lodge is very interesting and they have a room preserved where President Roosevelt used to stay when he visited there. The gift shop and views and ambiance is very cool. Not much snow when we were there, so no skiing, but still beautiful views. Plenty of parking up top, or you can park at Government camp

The lodge is nice with quaint decor and dripping with history. If you have never visited a cascade mountain this trip is a nice outing with beautiful views, great trails and activities all year round. It is not a fancy resort however in the league of Whistler. It is a modest lodge so make sure your expectations are managed. And... More
