Two-Story Cabin with Wood Fireplace, Deck, Gas Grill & Washer Dryer

This historic, family-oriented Government Camp vacation home has been a family getaway since the 1940s. A well-loved escape, now your family can experience a stay at this comfortable, home-away-from-home near Oregon's snow-covered Mt. Hood. With a location that backs up to National Forest land and the famous Glade Trail, if you take the bus up to Timberline Lodge, it's possible to ski all the way down to the back door of your mountain getaway!

Once you enter up the steps of this alpine-style, two-story cabin, you'll be treated to a warm and cozy interior. Dark wood paneling, comfortable furniture, and a large brick, wood-burning fireplace give the living area a homey feel. Settle back for an evening of watching DVDs on the TV - you can have a family movie marathon complete with buttered popcorn! And afterward, roast marshmallows in the fireplace for a dessert of s'mores. In the kitchen, you'll have all of the major appliances needed for meal preparation. A refrigerator, stove-top/oven, and even a microwave. In the morning, a coffee maker and a toaster can assist with breakfast. While you're out skiing, you can make use of the slow cooker and return from a day on the slopes to the delicious smells of a beef stew wafting through the house!

This level also boasts a comfortable main bedroom with a snuggly quilt-covered queen bed, a nicely updated full bathroom with a walk-in shower and lovely tile work, and a deck. Everyone else gets to head upstairs at night. A bunk room has four unique, custom twin beds built into the dormer-style roofline of this chalet cottage. From this room, a door will open out onto a Juliet-style balcony overlooking the Mt. Hood National Forest. There is another bedroom upstairs as well as a half bathroom.

We enjoyed our last minute stay at this classic ski cabin. We slept well in the comfortable queen beds and many cozy bunks with thinner mattresses. We loved sitting on the the covered deck in the rain, accessing great trails out the back door, enjoying the movie and game selection, and cooking in the surprisingly well stocked kitchen (sharp knives, olive oil and salt, etc). It’s across from the brewery and about 10 minute walk uphill to town, 12 minutes to Timberline Lodge if you’re there for ski camp. If you like a spotless home, this may not be for you (we lost something in the sofa and found a lot of miscellaneous items when we moved it) but it was perfect for us. We were also grateful they were able to prepare and clean it for us at the last minute on 4th of July so we were happy to overlook the dust bunnies. We would return happily!

This timeless mountain cabin has the feel of a vintage Swiss chalet. Home offers plenty of room for up to 8. It’s a perfect crash pad for a group of skiers/snowboarders who want to hit the slopes. Cheers!

overall very nice, some trash and cans needed to be cleaned, but no big deal. Wish there was cable and wifi, but not a must need!

This home has a great location that looks out on trails in the forest. A short walk away is a wooden bridge over a creek. Plan to reserve some time for a walk behind the house. The bunks hold adults comfortably, but kids will have a great time in their own little cubby hole!

House was a pleasant experience after hiking all day, we were comfortable.

We felt right at home. I didn't feel like I had to watch the kids at all times, because it felt comfortable and not as if everything was breakable. So close to Ski Bowl we could have walked. Government Camp is awesome. I would highly recommend this area for a summer vacation and this little place. Perfect for taking a bunch of kiddos with all the bunk beds. We had a wonderful time. Thank you.

We had a wonderful weekend at the 'Ski Haus'. This is a nicely kept 1960's cabin, where we felt right at home in the cozy atmosphere of old wood, traditional furnishings and beside the cozy fireplace! Sleeping layout is a little different - for our needs, the bedroom arrangements worked well, for others, although it sleeps so many, there is only one queen bedroom and the other double is a shared experience with several other captain/bunk like beds, plus one other room of 3 bunk style beds.
This home is older in style, but had been cleaned very well and had all that we needed. For sitting around in the living room, the 3 and 2 seater sofa's left us a bit short for a big group. We were also short on dining seats/table size, until we discovered on the last day a cupboard full of fold-able chairs and extra little table we could have used! Pays to explore more! One shower was fine for even our big group for a weekend, longer may need scheduling!
We were unsure about recycle materials for this area, so left a box of what we recycle at home beside the garbage. A notice would be a good idea.
Loved the rear forest setting and all the traditional decks.
We will definitely return to this neat, nice feel ski cabin and had a very memorable stay with our kids/young adults. Thank you.
