About The Owner
Our family has lived here in the ski resort village of Government Camp on Mt. Hood's south side in the snow zone, since the 1930's. My grandfather moved here with the family for the clean air because he had asthma. Our family had a restaurant called Hills Place then, home of the Jucy Jumbo Burger. Over the years there were 2 orphaned bears, Cubby and Teddy who attracted tourists passing thru the area as they could purchase a soda pop and photograph the bear as well as the mountain. The restaurant burned in the late 1960's as was not rebuilt. My Mom was a ski racer & an olympic contender in the 1940's but tragically broke her leg & finished the race in the olympic trials. She became a certified ski instructor...#8...and was co-founder and first president of the women's competitive ski club called Skiyente in the 1950's. In the 1960's she purchased Govt. Camp Water Co. Inc. and still runs the company today. The water is cold and clean, and originates from an underground aquifer on Mt. Hood. You do not need to bring bottled water here...just bring bottles and take some home with you!
We purchased this condo on the creek to share with family & friends and welcome you, our guests, to the place we love and call home.
The Owner purchased this condo in 2004
Why The Owner chose Government Camp
In the 1940's there were several hotels to accommodate mountain lovers, but fires took these old hotels, and they were not rebuilt. This created an increasing need for short term housing for ski enthusiasts so we purchased this special location condo on the creek to entertain family and friends, and share with people like you, wanting a home-away-from-home.
What makes this condo unique
Alpine Creek condo is your base-camp for year round recreation. There is so much to do here...or you can just relax and enjoy the crisp, clean air and slower pace.
Minutes to 3 ski areas, with 'porch to slope' shuttle on winter weekends and holidays from the condo.
Hike, bike, fish, boat, golf or windsurf the gorge..all close by.
Guestbook comments from the owner
The "leasure pool" just opened over Labor Day so 3 of us enjoyed a beautiful late summer long weekend in the mountains and soothed our souls! What a great time of relaxation, food, wine & friends!
