The proximity to Mt. Hood and the views are amazing. If you plan to hike or ski this is a great location. You can walk over to the lifts about 100 yards from the lodge. There are hikes that start in the lodge area and are accessible with proper footwear and gear for snow. I agree with the reviewers who say that if your expectation is of a lodge and not a 5 star hotel you will be pleased. The lodge does try to add a few touches like bath robes, spring water and nice bedding. There is an outdoor, heated swimming pool, hot tub and a Sauna. The rooms are older and small. The showers do change temperature. We stayed on the third floor near the kitchen and the smells were bothersome and sour. I expect that in an older hotel each room location has its quirks. The food is expensive and not worth the price. There are restaurants in Government Camp offer good choices at a reasonable price.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Declared a National Historic Landmark in 1977, Timberline Lodge is one of Oregon's most popular tourist attractions, drawing nearly two million visitors every year. Considered an architectural wonder, it's still being used for its original intent-a magnificent ski lodge and mountain retreat for all to enjoy. Timberline Lodge is filled with amazing spaces that beg enjoyment. The main headhouse lobby features three fireplaces at the base of a 90 foot chimney. The outdoor patios offer the most stunning views in Oregon. The outdoor pool is heated and open year round. With so many places to explore all under one roof, you'll feel as if the Lodge is an extension of your guest room. Each room in Timberline Lodge has a unique rustic elegance, yet a modern and comfortable feel. All rooms have period furnishings, artwork and decor. Enjoy fresh powder feather beds, the year 'round heated pool, spa and sauna. Rooms range from premier fireplace rooms to European style bunk rooms. Regardless of which room suits you best, they all share an authentic sense of place found only in one of the Historic Hotels of America. Timberline offers the longest ski season in North America. The winter season typically begins early to mid-November and continues through Memorial Day. Our Palmer Express high-speed quad lift allows us to operate later into the summer season than anyone else (usually through Labor Day). Many years, we're open for fall skiing as well. ... more less
