My husband and six kids from our local (California) high school's ski team stayed at the Grand Lodges (unit #5) for a week while the kids attended Timberline Snow Camp each day. We were totally impressed with the facility, as well as its convenient proximity to charming Government Camp. The six kids could walk up to town for ice cream after dinner, while my husband and I strolled to a brew pub or up to Govy General to buy a bottle of wine.
The staff at Grand Lodges was wonderful and made our late check-in a breeze...they were very easy to work with in making reservations and keeping us informed via email.
Although it was a little weird that there was no main front entrance to the complex and you had to go through the garage or side-entrances, that was the only negative thing about the property. The condo itself was beautiful, comfortable and perfectly appointed. There was an abundance of towels (for the pool, too), pillows and bedding, and the layout worked perfectly for the eight of us. Our back deck had a gas barbecue and nice patio chairs, and we really appreciated the high-quality washer/dryer and other appliances.
All in all, we highly recommend The Grand Lodges for a summer stay!
