About the property

3 Bedrooms, 2.5 Bathrooms, 6 Sleeps

Collins Lake Condos offer the very essence of Cascade Mountain charm, together with the most sophisticated and elegant amenities. Our chalet has a master bedroom (queen bed and private bath), guest bedroom (queen bed) and a bunk room (two single beds in a bunk bed configuration) with a privacy curtain at the doorway. There are two baths on the sleeping level and a half bath (on the daytime use level). Free WiFi High Speed Internet is available in the chalet and in the lodge. You'll have to leave Fido at home though because this unit is not pet-friendly.

We have one of the best locations in the resort. Some chalets back up to the noisy US 26 highway so you might listen to trucks. Some are back to back with other chalets so you have little privacy. Ours has the forest behind it at the end of Creek Ridge Road and away from the highways and away from the large cluster, noise and congestion by the entrance. Our location provides a more peaceful, private, quiet vacation. The reduced traffic at the end of the road is safer for children. If you prefer a budget experience, other units closer to to the hi-way may provide a budget unit. Our unit is our vacation home and we love it and its privacy.

Condo has a well-equipped kitchen and an open great room with a stunning stone fireplace. Our windows and private deck provide a distinct, peaceful view of the forest. A large, 2 car garage provides a place to keep your vehicle and outdoor equipment. The garage has a work table available for adjustments to your gear, and a washer and dryer. There is a grill on the deck, but its use is limited to the warmer summer season. It is dis-connected for the winter season. There is information on local hikes in a white notebook in the living room.

As our guest, you are welcome to use the Creekside Lodge. The lodge offers year-around heated swimming pool, Jacuzzi tub, Leisure hot tub/sauna in the forest, outdoor fire pit, and a large furnished meeting room with WiFi accessibility..

Our weekly rate has a 10% discount.

About Charlotte Tallman

We live in Lake Oswego, OR, less than 2 hours away from our chalet. We are both retired and love to share this treasure. Government Camp is the perfect place for skiing and hiking. We particularly like to hike the many trails in the Mt. Hood area.

Charlotte Tallman purchased this chalet in 2007

Why Charlotte Tallman chose Government Camp

The resort is situated in the heart of Government Camp which has numerous restaurants and a market. Collins Lake Resort was built in 2004 . It is within easy walking access to The Village, steps from Mt. Hood Skibowl and the Mt. Hood Adventure Park, and minutes to Timberline Lodge and Mt. Hood Meadows.

Great place!

  • 5 of 5

Collins Lake is a great base for exploring the Mount Hood area, and we've stayed there regularly over the years. This unit was really well equipped — there was everything we needed in the kitchen, including plenty of dishware and a complete spice rack, lots of towels including some for the pool, and comfortable beds. The location at the quiet end of the resort is a real bonus. We really hope to rent this unit again!

The property was well maintained. Townhouse easily accommodated a family of 5. The property is short on parking when the lot was not completely plowed. We had a full size F150 which is tight to pull in the garage. Security was not at all helpful, they knocked on the door 2 nights in a row after 9 pm, asking about cars illegally parked. They were not our cars. My husband, in hospitality over 30 years, suggested they help the tenants with solving the parking issue. The Security person said, not my problem and was not at all friendly. I understand it may be overwhelming, however, the security company should train their employees on customer service. Maybe, guests should be given a card for the vehicles windows. Other than, the parking, the property was great.

Nice place!

  • 5 of 5

I booked this condo in order to see the total eclipse of 2017. As expected, the price reflected this, but I was still quite satisfied. In excellent condition, clean, lovely view in a nice area, and very well-stocked. Just about any type of kitchenware you can imagine is there: pots, pans, bakeware, utensils, plates, cups, the works. Very comfortable furniture and bedding. A+

Car: recommended

This Chalet is located in the heart of Government Camp. During the winter guests enjoy the short walk to Mt. Hood Skibowl, where they can ski all day and all night! There are also two other Ski Resorts just a few miles away. During the summer enjoy the hiking trails that will take you to beautiful Mirror Lake, Trillium Lake, or maybe a waterfall. The Oregonian had an article on the 13 places to eat and drink around Mount Hood:
