Holiday information (see link below) for Mt Hood Ski Bowl, which is just easy walking distance from our vacation rental condo..... enjoy!!!

Welcome to your Mt. Hood vacation getaway in our very clean open floor plan, ‘studio-style’ 1 sleeping room condo unit, comfortably sleeps up to 4 in same room. This very cozy unit is perfectly situated in Government Camp just walking distance across the street from Mt. Hood Ski Bowl, a destination for Winter and Summer fun…. Skiing, snowboarding, snowshoeing, cross-country skiing, hiking, cycling, mountain biking, and so much more!

The condo unit is on the 2nd floor facing West outside the sliding patio door (for the best views of Ski Bowl in the entire village!!!). No other unit in the building has a sliding glass patio door facing Ski Bowl and overlooking the year-round geothermal heated pool. This particular unit has a walk-out deck outside the patio door where you can sit quietly overlooking the heated pool below and you can sit on the covered deck to watch the sunset over the Ski Bowl resort. There really aren’t any nicer views of this part of Ski Bowl anywhere on the mountain! The rental unit includes portable chairs for your use on the outdoor deck.

The unit is located in the historic Thunderhead Lodge building (boasts one of the best locations in Government Camp: the classic Thunderhead Lodge! This unit is one of only 10 condo units in the building. The Thunderhead Lodge was originally home of the historic “Ski Way” aerial tram that transported skiers and passengers up to Timberline Lodge (in the 1950’s).

Stay in the historic building that once served as the base terminal in Government Camp. Our building has great community amenities like a heated geothermal year-round pool, a large recreation room with wood-burning fireplace, wet bar, pool table and foosball, and outstanding views of Mt. Hood and Ski Bowl. And you’ll feel like you’re ‘on the mountain’ when the lights come on at nighttime for Ski Bowl night-skiing!

Your own private getaway within the lodge is fully equipped with everything you might need to enjoy a ski getaway or mountain biking weekend for up to four guests. There are 2 full size beds in the same sleeping room. The studio style sleeping arrangement has a full kitchen, full bath, TV with DVD/VHS players and a stock of movies for both adults and children…. There is private, dedicated Internet Wifi in our unit 203, and the Village of Government Camp has several spots for WiFi connectivity too!

Our fully stocked kitchen has everything you should require for a nice breakfast, lunch or dinner before or after your big adventures on the mountain! Refrigerator with freezer, oven with electric stove, microwave, coffeemaker, pots, pans, dishes, and utensils. If cooking on vacation isn’t your thing, then walk across the street to the brewpub restaurant or up the hill into the Village of Government Camp for a big night on the town…..

There are two bed possibilities: 2 full size beds, linens provided. 1 upper bunk bed area (intended for small children only, supervision required at all times, weight limit for upper bunk area is 150lbs. Use at your own discretion/risk).

You can walk to skiing at Mt Hood Ski Bowl (literally just steps down the street!), or drive just a few miles further up the mountain to Timberline and Mt. Hood Meadows! In the summer, the area is surrounded by hiking and biking trails, alpine lakes, wildflower-filled meadows, and amazing scenic vistas of the mountain. Stay in the heart of it all here at the Thunderhead Lodge!

Cozy Studio

  • 5 of 5

This rental was comfortable, cozy, and spotless - perfect for two adults and one small child. We enjoyed skiing the nordic trails directly outside of the lodge, swimming in the heated pool, and watching the ever-changing view of Mt. Hood Ski Bowl. A very kid-friendly place in a great location.

fun place-great for a family or small group

  • 5 of 5

This is a comfortable, functional, low key condo in a great location. We especially loved the geothermally heated pool and the opportunity to assess conditions at skibowl through the main window. It is a quirky old building and the walls are thin, so light sleepers might want earplugs, but it has everything you need right in Government camp. Great place!

Owner's Response: The owner provides ear plugs and noise-cancelling white noise sleep machine. Yes, this is an older historic building and the floors and walls are 'thin'.

Charming condo in the trees

  • 4 of 5

Great overnight stay. Cute little snow lodge feel with the rustic wood panneling, topographic maps of the mountain, and historic photos from the area. The place was clean and kitchen stocked with all the tools we needed for crafting a delicious meal after a fun night on the slopes. My one reservation is the beds were pretty terrible, not very restful for my sore muscles. But I’ll have to admit, the geothermal outdoor pool was the icing on the cake for what was all in all a tremendous weekend up on Mt. Hood. Cheers, I can’t wait to visit again!

Owner's Response: Our beds are brand new and firm. We like firm mattresses which is why we chose these for the condo. You have been the only person to have ever made a comment about the beds not being comfortable. Every person has their own sleep number. I guess we all now know that your sleep number isn’t in the firm category. Thanks for sharing your unique experience.

Cozy cabin

  • 4 of 5

The cabin was clean and suited our needs just fine. It was a great value for the price we paid. We enjoyed the hot pool and the proximity to Ski bowl mountain and Government camp village was great. The only downside was that the complex was a bit loud, lots of activity always going on around the unit and out by the pool.

This condo building rental property (studio-style unit) is NOT located in the Collins Lake property complex. This is an historic lodge building (THUNDERHEAD LODGE) located just down the street from Collins Lake complex. We have a year-round geo-thermally heated pool! This property is much smaller, cozier and quieter compared to the much busier Collins Lake complex.
