All of the beds are super-comfortable with high-thread-count sheets and down comforters.

My husband and I own and operate a farm on Sauvie Island outside of Portland. Because of our busy farming schedule we are unable to take summer vacations and look forward to many weekend winter getaways up on the mountain. Our kids ages 10 and 13 are growing up so fast that we decided that we want to spend as much time with them up on Mt. Hood enjoying winter sports.
Sandra Kruger purchased this condo in 2012
I love Mt. Hood and chose this condo after spending many weekends in our friend's unit right next door. It's very convenient to skiing and, with its proximity to the village of Government Camp, you get a real alpine experience. The soaking tub and pool are great for the kids as is Ski Bowl across the street.
We love this end unit because the extra windows make it so bright and sunny. We've chosen to outfit it with new and mid-century modern furniture because it's what we love and how we live at home.
Great communication from owner. Received a text when condo was ready for check in. Very neat, clean condo with everything we needed. Kitchen had all appliances and essentials needed. Pool and hot tubs are very close.
We had a great time staying at this condo. very close to everything you need in Government camp. Clean and spacious condo was perfect for our group
This is a nice condo. It is 3 stories tall.
The first story is the garage level. The entrance to the garage is very, very narrow but if you drive slow, a car can fit in. The garage inside opens up to a larger area with plenty of room for a parked car. It is also the location of the washer and dryer and winter storage.
As you enter the condo, there is a front door to your left and a very long straight up staircase to your right. This staircase will take you to the main living area with a half bath, living room, dining room and kitchen. Off of the kitchen is another long straight up staircase to take you to the 3rd floor which has 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. One bathroom has a stand up shower stall and the other a full tub with shower. We were instructed that if that floor gets wet, it leaks through to the living room ceiling so we should use plenty of bathmats and towels on the floor.
We stayed here during the off season and the resort felt abandoned - like an eerie ghost town. But if you stay during season, I am sure there would be lots of activities. We followed the directions we were given and got lost. We did take Hwy 26 and followed the turn off road to Government Camp but then it said to "Take the third right at the top of the hill into Collins Lake Resort." It was not on our right but on our left. The directions provided assumed we were traveling east on Hwy 26 from Portland but we were actually traveling west on Hwy 26 after coming up from Crater Lake. I had a printed map of the area and was able to got us there. I mention this because if you are traveling west instead of east - know the resort will be on your left!
We felt this was a good choice when staying in Government Camp, OR. The only thing we disliked was paying a $95 cleaning fee and having to take out our own garbage. I don't mind taking it downstairs to a garbage can. But here you actually have to load it in your car and drive it to the main resort entrance across from the management office and place it in the huge dumpsters there. We also had to do all the dishes before leaving which I don't mind doing. But $95 just to vacuum and change out bedding & towels seemed like a steep price.
It also took longer than expected to get our $200 damage deposit back. I started to wonder if the owner forgot our refund.
Overall, we enjoyed our stay and found this to be a good choice when staying in Government Camp and I am sure you will enjoy it too!
The place was fantastic! Kept very clean and well cared for. It had everything we needed. The apartment was full of light, was close to the pool, spacious, BBQing while it was snowing! Would absolutely recommend this place!
We decided to make a quick overnight stay at the mountain. It is tough to find a place that will rent for 1 night. We enjoyed our stay and the condo was amazing. We packed in as much adventure as possible into our 24 hour stay. We will definitely look to book here again.
Great location with walking distance to the shops, restaurants and snow tubing. Property is very well maintained, very clean and comfortable. Kitchen is well equipped. Owner was very helpful and responsive to our questions. Can't wait to visit again!
