We stayed in the Timberline for 1 night in September 2011. The hotel itself is quaint, with some wonderful features inside, the artwork is lovely and it just has a real historical feel to it.
We only stayed one night and didn't venture up the slopes to ski. We did, however, explore the grounds. In September, there is still great opportunity to ski as Mt. Hood still has a lot of snow. The facilities did seem briliant and the staff were very friendly. I went for a walk at 6am one morning and it was so serene, peaceful and absolutely beautiful. The room was very clean and quiet.
The breakfast was absolutely amazing and everything was provided for. The staff were efficient and very helpful and friendly.
We arrived late enough the night before and ate in the bar. I can't speak for the all day menu but it was quite limited at 9pm...so perhaps check this before you go, just to be sure.
Finally, you need to ask at reception to see the HERE'S JOHNNY axe from The Shining!!!
Loved this place, I would love to go back and stay for longer.
