We stayed in Unit 8 over the Christmas holidays and loved every minute. In the past we have stayed at Timberline Lodge. It is certainly historic and unique, but the rooms are small. In the Lodge my wife and I stayed with our son, his wife and two girls. Plenty of room for all and our ski/snowshoe equipment. The best thing about this facility is the covered parking space under the Lodge, assigned to you (only one per unit). You enter around back. There is also a storage unit behind your car for your snow gear. They also have some patio furniture there for summer use on your deck (upstairs in our unit). There are two complete bathrooms, one downstairs and one up. The girls stayed in the loft while the parents stayed in the two bedrooms downstairs by the kitchen and great room (boy, is it every great with fireplace, TV and huge windows). The location was super for renting gear (across the street) or eating (within walking distance along the main street). Also, we went up Mt. Hood via the side street next to the lodge to look at other single family rentals. There are several places where kids can sled. Farther up we put on our snowshoes and followed the cleared (of trees) trail for a mile up for awesome views. Timberline Lodge is only 3 miles by snowshoe from the Lodge at GC. We would of hiked it, but the weather looked iffy at the top of Hood and we all know what that means. There was so much snow there that we took a sleigh ride, complete with two large horses and bells...what a treat. They can only do it when snow covers the streets. The office for picking up/turning in your keys is not in the store, but at an entrance on the west side. There is an elevator in the Lodge, too. We will go back.

Room Tip: We were on the north side...the only view of Mt. Hood was from our 2nd floor patio. However, we had...

If you are going to stay in Government camp, The Lodge is a good choice. We have stayed here previously and that experience was not a good one. We decided to give it another chance and were pleasantly surprised. We stayed in unit 4 this time. It is very "lodgie". That is a good thing. My only negative would be the upstairs queen bed us very uncomfortable. The sun, if shining, will wake you up if you are in the loft. There are no blinds. This unit is not very soundproof and if others get up to catch the the first powder, you will hear them.
All in all, we will return.

Room Tip: Avoid east facing units unless you like waking up with the sun.

We stayed in Unit 6. It was decorated beautifully and comfortably. Perfect location atop of the grocery store. The grocery store and rental staff were very nice and helpful. This unit spared no expense, from the towels to the awesome floor pillow. Which by the way, I have been searching for since I got home. The view from our balcony was gorgeous. Our unit was very clean and appliances were brand new. On recommendation from the staff, we tried Charlies (which from the outside didn't look good). It was the best restaurant there. Each time were were impressed with the quality of our food and the friendliness of the cooks. We will definitely go back to stay at this Condo. I highly recommend it! The location was perfect. Right across from Skibowl and only a few miles from Timberline.

We have stayed at Timberline Lodge may nights. The rooms have always been beyond perfect. We thought this trip we would give their condos a try. Big mistake! To start with, our condo #3, had not been cleaned that well. While my kids were unpacking they found old/dirty underwear and socks in the drawers. Then a very foul smell began to make it's way out of the kitchen. Come to find out the previous tenants must have had fish and the leftovers were still in the sink drain.
There is no coffee, or creamer, or sugar provided either. Even Motel 6 gives you complimentary coffee for the mornings.
My advise, stick to Timberline Lodge up on the mountain and avoid the Lodge/condos in Government camp. Unless you like filthy accommodations. Makes me wonder if the beds are clean. Yuck!

We stayed in unit #1. note......These are NOT owned by timberline lodge. They are well managed by timberline. However you are still at the mercy of the respective owner for all appointments except sheets and cleanliness. The appliances are all low end. There are instructions for nothing. Kitchen knives are dull and low end; scissors were unusable. It is definitely "rental" caliber. Though Timberline staff did a great job to help us out with questions as best they could . Mattress quality was just okay. Cable was "basic" package in a child " lock down" mode. You can use pool up at Timberline Lodge.

We stayed at the Lodge at Government Camp for two nights in may 2010.
What a find! There are no words to describe the experience of staying at this incredibly beautiful lodge.

We found this wonderful place after deciding we should go to Mount Hood and the Timberline Lodge while on our road trip. Prices were rather high and rooms were rather small. Taking a closer look at the website, we found heaven: the lodge at Government Camp. You're still a Timberline guest, but spend the night in Government Camp.

We stayed in unit 4. There is a front desk on the ground level, next to the Govy General store. Free parking is in the back, but limited to one car. No problem for
our rental car! The elevator takes you up to the great hallway and when you enter the lodge, you're overwhelmed with a warm cozy feeling.

A great kitchen with a huge fridge and freezer, self cleaning oven, dishwasher, ... Great room with huge windows, a stove, comfy couches, tv, dvd-player, cd-player,
cd's, dvd's, books, ... and all the luxury one needs. On the balcony is a bbq, so great during the summer!

There is one seperate bedroom with a double bed downstairs and a big bathroom with steam shower. A big plus for the washer and dryer! We could do our laundry!
Great!

Upstairs is another level, an open space with a double bed, comfy chairs, tv and another (somewhat smaller) bathroom. When we woke up in the morning, we could see
it snowing through the huge windows from our bed upstairs. Incredible feeling!

Free wi-fi works great!

An unforgettable stay and if we had the money, we would buy this unit this very moment.
