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.
