Timberline Lodge, the central hub for the ski area, is more than just a ski lodge, but is a historic monument to government work performed in the depression era. Privately managed, it is on Forest Service land and generally offers tours. This particular visit was an exception, I think. We couldn't find the tour and the view area over the... More

If you're not familiar with the Timberline Lodge, it was used in the outside scenes in The Shining. Built by the WPA in the 1930's, the architecture is absolutely incredible. It is still an active hotel, although we just went to visit and have lunch. There is an amazing amount of historical memorabilia about the lodge, which is all really... More

Timberline Lodge is the stuff of fable: a venerable log construction built by the WPA, and an ode to WPA craftmanship if ever there was one!!! This writer has been to a lot of mountains, but this is the first one where one can see the mountain while one is ON the mountain! Timberline Lodge is at 6,000 feet and... More

We stopped into the timberline lodge after a morning driving along the gorge mostly because of our interest in the shining. The hotel was beautiful, so rustic inside with multiple bars and restaurants. There is a dog-friendly patio at the back of the hotel that you get to by walking all the way round the right hand side of the... More

We were already at the Columbia River Gorge on a little sightseeing excursion, and spotted Mt Hood in the distance. It was odd seeing all that snow in July, so we decided to continue in that direction. After an incredibly beautiful drive through the Oregon countryside, we ended up at the historic Timberline Lodge, built in the '30's, I think.... More

Timberline Lodge was declared a US National Historic Landmark in 1977. It was built of huge timbers in 1935. It is a hotel/lodge, with local stone fireplaces, located on the south side of Mount Hood within the Mount Hood National Forest, at 5,960 feet elevation. It was a WPA project during the Great Depression. The lodge was dedicated by Franklin... More

Timberline Lodge sits at the base of Mount Hood in Timberline, Oregon. The lodge was dedicated in 1937 by F.D. Roosevelt. It is basically a very large ski resort. I've lived in Oregon most of my life and this was the first time I had ever been here to my knowledge. We arrived July 19, 2015 and were surprised to... More

I love coming up here for lunch at the Cascade dining room, since we live just 20 miles from the lodge in Brightwood. It doesn't matter what season you come up here, there is always something new to see. In the winter the lodge has a smell of sweet burning logs, that makes you want to just hang out by... More

Had lunch at the Rams Head Restaurant after hiking along the PCT at Mount Hood. We were very pleasantly surprised by the quality and the reasonable price. We had the cheese fondue with bratwurst (2) and the kale salad. The cheese fondue was excellent and came with fruit, vegetables and bread (easily a half loaf). The kale salad had plenty... More

Each time I visit Timberline Lodge I'm taken back in time to my youth, along with generations before me who have visited. The breathtaking views coupled with the massive timbers that make up the lodge are breathtaking. Sitting on the north patio watching the clouds make their way over the summit of Mt. Hood is one of the most tranquil... More
