Besides the location of Timberline Lodge...at Mt Hood ... the interior of the lodge is filled with amazing artwork done in the 1930s as part of the WPA. All the furnishings in the lodge represent the original ones made 75 years ago. We enjoyed staying overnight so that we had time to browse through the lodge, and take walks along the trails.
We sipped drinks in the Rams Head Lounge on the third floor with a great view of Mt. Hood. Our room was small, but comfortable. It had pine paneled walls, wrought iron fittings on the doors and lamp stands, along with an old fashioned dial phone! The bed was comfortable. The bathroom was divided, with the sink and toilet in one room and the shower in another. The shower room was spacious, with large fluffy towels provided. Our stay was in early September, and it was hot, even at night. No air conditioning, but the windows could be opened. During the night we heard creaks and a very loud snorer in the room next door. Even though the lodge is beautifully restored, it is 75 years old and noises are expected.
We had a lovely dinner (a bit expensive, but worth it) in the Cascade Room, and ate there again for breakfast, where a choice of a small or large buffet was offered.
