Spring break vacation at Thunderhead lodge

  • 4 of 5

We found the room clean and ready to go. All the amenities that we needed was all inclusive in the room. It was plenty warm in the room for my wife who loves it warm! The only issue we had was that the wifi didn't work. We could connect to the system but the internet for some reason didn't work, the modem showed an active wifi to connect to but indicated that there was no connection to the internet. Also there wasn't a thermostat in the room for us to lower the heat, which wasn't a problem for my wife or my kids, but I was a little uncomfortable for sleeping.

Aside from that we had a good time and the room was very clean, well maintained and the rate was very reasonable. I highly recommend staying at the old Thunderhead lodge. Its close to restaurants, ski shops, and a local grocery store if you forgot or need something. Also about 12 minutes from Mt. Hood Meadows or Timberline Lodge and just a couple minutes from Ski Bowl.

Clean, dry place to stay and cook a meal

  • 3 of 5

We stayed at the unit in Thunderhead lodge this past weekend. Our stay got off to a VERY rocky start, as you can see in the attached email we were not provided an entry code to the unit, or instruction on how to get into the building. After waiting outside for an hour and twenty minutes (in the snow never the lest) and (5) phone calls to Vacasa, we finally got ahold of someone at Vacasa that could give use the code to get into the building and the unit. As this was the first time we stayed with Vacasa the first impression was not good.

While the unit was clean and very usable, it is showing its age and is in need of a refresh. It does have some maintenance issues that need addressed right away. The handle is missing on the outside of the sliding door, not so friendly in getting back in. The cable TV wire is tapped into the wall, and missing the connector on the end, this makes the signal to the TV very bad filling the picture full of lines. The kitchen faucet is leaking from the handle and cannot be turned off completely. Finally, the internet hub, while you can log onto the hub, there is no internet signal, hence the red light with the word internet below it. And yes we tried to reset the hub and all of that. Overall, we had a clean dry place to stay, but was it worth what we paid? Not really.

I hope that Vacasa will take the needed actions to take care of all of these issues for the next folks that plan on staying at this unit. As for us? Well I think we may try another vacation home service.
