About the property

So much summer fun for your family in the heart of amazing Mount Hood.

This is the most kid friendly place on the mountain...but the adults in your group will love it too. Timberline slopes are open all summer and afterwards, relax with the heated pool, soaking pool, hot tub and sauna just 50 feet from our front door, this is the place to relax and enjoy the mountain.

Email us for a link to our photo album with 50 pictures!

Our home is an ideal base camp for your Mount Hood adventure, whether playing in the snow in the winter, or hiking and enjoying the mountain in the summer! Our cozy home has everything you need for a visit surrounded by comfort and relaxation.

What to do first? Stroll through Government Camp, take the kids for a swim, enjoy a soak in one of the two hot tubs, relax in the sauna, go summer skiing or snowboarding. Or just cook up a great dinner in the cozy kitchen.

Family friendly--we only rent to families: Play a board game, stroll around Collins Lake, go for a hike, play electronic darts....or just enjoy the fireplace and a movie or magazine.

In the summer, enjoy the summer skiing and riding at Timberline, or enjoy the Ski Bowl Action Adventure Park right across US 26 from our resort. The pool, soaking pool and hot tub are perfect to spend warm summer days enjoying. Hiking trails are all over the resort and in Government Camp, as well as just a short drive away in favorite areas like Trillium Lake.

Everything you need is within walking distance. This is our ''Home Away From Home:'' so you will find spices in the cupboard for cooking up your family meals, an entire bookshelf of kids books, movies to cozy up and watch with hot popcorn, an electronic dart board...even a table for the kids to play games or do crafts on.

Email us for our video link and many many more pictures.

About The Owner: We have an active family, and enjoy all things outdoors. We love Mount Hood in every season.

Staying at our Chalet offers a very kid-friendly home, chock full of games, toys and sleds. In addition the resort has year round heated pool, 2 hot tubs and a sauna, all just 40 feet from our front door.

This home was perfect for our family get together! We enjoyed the beautiful surroundings by day and came back this comfortable, fully equipped home in the evenings. It is difficult to make a decision from a website, but we are very happy with our choice!

Cozy Get-Away

  • 5 of 5

This three bedroom condo has amenities that every age will enjoy! The gas fireplace and well-stocked kitchen were much appreciated by the adults, while the kids throroughly enjoyed all the toys and games available. The pool, sauna, and hot tubs were a hit for everyone and having them only a few steps away was fabulous. We look forward to being able to go back again.
