“Well appointed luxury rental”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 18, 2014 via mobile

Spent three nights with 3 other couples. Very roomy and well appointed. The kitchen was well stocked with clean, new utensils and pots and pans which is not what we usually find in vacation rentals. We usually rent in the Florida panhandle. The hot tub is 100 yds from the bldg so that could be closer but otherwise a great place.

Stayed February 2014, traveled with friends

This was my second trip to Mt Hood, and my first time staying in Government Camp (last year we stayed closer to Zig Zag). I definitely recommend staying here because it is so close to the ski resorts. It made it super easy to get up to Timberline when the lifts opened without having to get up insanely early, and the drive home was pleasantly short.

The only drawback is that the walls are a little thin and the beds in our unit were only queen size. That being said, the unit is well sized for two families to share–4 adults and 3 kids in our case. Everything was well maintained and clean before we arrived. The kitchen was a great size for preparing meals for two families. The staff in the main office was always cheerful and helpful. There is a great outdoor pool that the kids swam in every day, despite the temperature ranging from 30-40 degrees F, and the hot tub was a relief to use after a long day skiing. The whole complex has a nice vibe and we found the people there, both residents and renters, to be outgoing and friendly. This is a very kid friendly place.

Room Tip: Request an end unit. You'll get a lot more window light and half the amount of noise from your n...

If any one would have any excuse to be just good rather than excellent it would be an establishment in tiny Government Camp. Not these guys. They are pros. Good communication and friendly service. This past week we had our second visit. The town houses were spotless and well supplied. Very comfy furnishings, a pool, and a clubhouse which we never used.

Although we only stayed for 2 nights, the condo and our unit was perfect. The 2 bedroom unit was clean and close to restaurants in this small town. However, you must be able to climb a couple of steep stairways.

Despite the fact that there was no snow we enjoyed our time at Collins Lake Resort. We found other things like geocaching to occupy our time. The chalet was fully stocked, comfortable, and within walking distance to everything. I would love to go back when there is snow.

Decided to do a last minute rental at Collins Lake resort. Was perfect. The condo was sooooo clean and nice, and we even brought the pups for a small fee.
The resort has 2 nice (heated pools), discounts to Skibowl - which is walking distance, and The Ratskeller Restaurant has the BEST gluten free pizza. All was within walking distance.
Hiked around Trillium lake, spent a day at skibowl.... Such a great weekend.
Our #113 unit is technically a vacation rental.
