Awesome place to see.

The construction and pure, simple beauty of this building is a must see. It was built by the WPA in the 1920/30's and holds ist original charm.

We had gone for a drive in early fall and decided to come here to get as close to the peak as possible. You can park by the lodge and hike up paved paths for quite a distance. We ended up having a snack at the lodge restaurant which has amazing views and great food. I had soup. My son... More

After a day of hiking and wine tasting, we made our way around and up the mountain to the Timberline Lodge. We ate in the Ram Bar. A very small menu was a bit disappointing. The bar appeared well stocked. We each enjoyed a bowl of soup and split a sandwich. The food was great. Service was ok, nothing special... More

We went to Mount Hood with our two grandkids, 4 & 2. We ate on the 3rd floor restaurant. Both kids had crayons and pictures keep them busy. The food for adults is better than the kids. Service was good. Warm atmosphere. Concert on the 2nd floor. String quartet outside. Lovely!

Went here for "brunch" the food available was substantially below normal buffet foods. Food was over cooked and very dry, only the make them yourself waffles, reached the point of adequate. Recommend skipping this for dinner and just enjoy the views.

Be aware that they do not take American Express. Buffet lunch only had two choices of meat (beef or pork) as main courses. Salad was ok & good choice of desserts. I ordered a Sauvignon Blanc wine at $7.50 and was told they didn't stock that any more but had another, which I ordered. It wasn't until the bill arrived... More

Hiked 13.8 miles starting at the timberline lodge trail head. Some very easy trails all the way up to difficult. Climbing the face of the mt on off-season was fun

We took a day trip out of Portland to visit Mt Hood and eat lunch at the Timberline Lodge. Because of traffic, we were delayed and ended up getting there after the main dining room closes at 2pm. We ate upstairs at the bar area. The food was very good but it took about an hour to get it. The... More

This was the location for a wedding I recently attended. We all met here and took shuttles up to Silcox Hut for the ceremony. Unbelievable views of Mt Hood and surrounding areas. Had breakfast here too and it was great! Skiing in August in 80 degree temps!!! Met people from Sweden who came for the snowboarding. Wild!
