Ski-in/ski-out access for family fun on the slopes
Ideal for special events and skiing enthusiasts, this gorgeous vacation rental lodge offers up to 22 guests luxurious accommodations throughout 6 bedrooms, 6 baths and prime amenities like a huge hot tub and infared sauna. Ideally located in the historic town of Government Camp, this rustic retreat is just up the street from Mt. Hood Skibowl, and less than 5 miles from the "Gateway" to Timberline Lodge, Summit Ski area, and Mt. Hood Meadows. Book now for an unforgettable Mt. Hood experience!

The Space:
Master Bedroom: King Bed | Bedroom 2: King Bed | Bedroom 3: King Bed | Bedroom 4: 2 Queen Beds | Bedroom 5: Queen Bed, Full Futon | Bedroom 6: 2 Twin-over-Full Bunk Beds, 1 Floor Mattress | Additional Sleeping: 2 Air Mattresses

From the moment you arrive, you'll be floored at the amount of space you'll enjoy in the Great Blue Lodge! The main level of the home holds a spacious, inviting great room, with plenty of comfortable seating for you to gather around the wood-burning stove with family and friends, surrounded by the second-floor balcony with doors opening up in every direction to reveal space, space, and more space.

Gather round the immense farmhouse table with long benches for meals. The fully equipped kitchen with a walk-in pantry includes a double wide refrigerator with freezer and a gas range stovetop with oven. There is a microwave for your convenience, Keurig coffee maker, and a large butcher block kitchen island, providing all the culinary essentials for large group meals!

Upstairs, a balcony circles the entire lodge with amazing views out onto the surrounding woods. You'll also find not 1, not 2, but 3 master suites with plush king-sized beds, along with a fourth suite with 2 equally-plush queens.

The family suite offers lots of options for sleeping arrangements with 2 bedrooms: the first includes a queen-sized bed and a double futon, while the second includes 2 twin-over-full bunk beds. Every bedroom has a bathroom (several with deep soaking tubs), so there's plenty of space for everyone to spread out and enjoy optimal comfort in this sprawling lodge!

In addition to the downstairs lounging area, you'll find a spacious game room on the third floor with a poker card table and board games, and a living area with deep easy chairs, and a second flat-screen TV for quieter viewing. You'll also find a large laundry room with oversized washer and 2 dryers, for your convenience and laundry needs.

Looking for a bit of sunshine? Head outdoors to the enormous deck for a soak in the large hot tub or just a little time to kick back, put up your feet, and enjoy a conversation with your favorite people while basking in the beautiful natural wilderness around you.

The Neighborhood:
The 'Great Blue Lodge' not only offers luxe amenities and a beautiful interior, but it also boasts an incredible location near all the Mt. Hood lodges, outdoor recreation, restaurants and more!

In spring and summer, there explore the fabulous biking and hiking trails, get a thrill with the Alpine Slide, or cast your line in Trillium Lake for some trout. Mt. Hood Adventure is always a great choice for families and groups, as it offers everything from Malibu race cars and zip lines, to a bungee tower and tree top walk.

Come wintertime, the Mt. Hood area transforms into a snowy mecca! Your entire party will enjoy the easy access to all Mt. Hood lodges, with fantastic winter skiing, snow shoeing, and snowboarding.

While you're in the area, be sure to explore the darling historical town of Government Camp, which includes a general store, local restaurants, and multiple brewpubs.

Getting Around:
You will need a vehicle to get to the lodge. From Nov-March you will need snow chains or 4 wheel drive with snow tires. If you attempt to drive up the mountain without either of these and have to call for help you will be fined by the local authorities for not having proper chains or tires on your vehicle. Driving on the mountain can be very dangerous without chains or 4 wheel drive/snow tire combo. There is transportation available from Government Camp up to Timberline and Meadow but you will have to investigate dates/times/pick up locations as they change frequently. I suggest doing an internet search if interested in advance of arrival as they book up fast.

Interaction with Guests:
We value guests privacy but will be available for any questions or concerns and if needed can be available onsite.
Rooms open to patios. Bathrooms include showers.
Recreational amenities at the vacation home include ski-in/ski-out access.

5/5 Excellent

Excellent stay in a great location for our family
Very roomy with lots of open space to spread out in. We truly enjoyed our stay here.

3/5 Okay

This one isnt for everybody
I didnt know the reason I was paying the high price was the view of the ski slopes. Which, still, should only be about 500-700 a night for what the property is. No outside place to play besides going to the slopes which you cant tube at on the weekdays. The kitchen here was the most depressing part. Dirty dishes in the cupboards and on the pans. All the pans were old, scratched and abused (They did offer to send up the cleaners again and a new pan but i didnt want contact due to covid). There was half old crap left behind from any and everyone for a pantry. There was no pepper or sugar here. For over $700 a night I expect at least a basic functioning kitchen. This part particularly ruined the stay since thats where most of time is spent. (I usually bring my own pans to avoid issues like this but didnt think for the price, it would be necessary) There were actually many things I had issue with, some I let them know, a few I didnt. Property manager Stephanie was great and very accomodating and helpful but the owners choices are dismal and disappointing.

5/5 Excellent

We will be back!
Such a great spot! We hopped right over to Skibowl and could easily come home for lunch. Crossed the street nightly for growlers from Mt Hood Brewing. Bring your favorite games because there aren’t a lot of choices, but we always travel with playing cards. Hot tub was fabulous. Beds are great - plenty of space for our crew. And just so much space for everything - hanging up wet ski gear and boots, laundry, eating and hanging out. Stephanie is extremely responsive and so helpful. Thank you!
