We stayed at the Lodge at Government Camp for two nights in may 2010.
What a find! There are no words to describe the experience of staying at this incredibly beautiful lodge.
We found this wonderful place after deciding we should go to Mount Hood and the Timberline Lodge while on our road trip. Prices were rather high and rooms were rather small. Taking a closer look at the website, we found heaven: the lodge at Government Camp. You're still a Timberline guest, but spend the night in Government Camp.
We stayed in unit 4. There is a front desk on the ground level, next to the Govy General store. Free parking is in the back, but limited to one car. No problem for
our rental car! The elevator takes you up to the great hallway and when you enter the lodge, you're overwhelmed with a warm cozy feeling.
A great kitchen with a huge fridge and freezer, self cleaning oven, dishwasher, ... Great room with huge windows, a stove, comfy couches, tv, dvd-player, cd-player,
cd's, dvd's, books, ... and all the luxury one needs. On the balcony is a bbq, so great during the summer!
There is one seperate bedroom with a double bed downstairs and a big bathroom with steam shower. A big plus for the washer and dryer! We could do our laundry!
Upstairs is another level, an open space with a double bed, comfy chairs, tv and another (somewhat smaller) bathroom. When we woke up in the morning, we could see
it snowing through the huge windows from our bed upstairs. Incredible feeling!
Free wi-fi works great!
An unforgettable stay and if we had the money, we would buy this unit this very moment.
