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.

About The Owner: We have an active family, and enjoy all things outdoors. We love Mount Hood in every season. From the massive snowfall to the beautiful warm summer days, it offers a great base camp for every outdoor activity. And with the resort amenities, we have a bit of luxury at the end of any day. 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.
Our home is a brand new vacation rental and the comments have been fantastic.
Folks love our well equipped home, chock full of games, books, videos, sleds
and everything for kids and adults to have a great time. Everyone has been
really happy so far, and we are sure you will be too.
Come and enjoy our home,
Brent and Debbie
This home is wonderfully appointed and perfect for families as the owners describe. They were easy to work with and quick to respond. The condo's location near the pool was perfect, our kids (11, 9, and 7) loved swimming while it was snowing! The leisure pool in the woods did get crowded after dinner until closing, so if you have kids, hit it up earlier rather than later for a more family friendly atmosphere.
The kids also loved all the toys, the garage playroom, and most of all the sleds and snowball makers. I loved the well appointed kitchen, had everything I needed and more! The condo was very clean and nicely decorated.
Regarding the resort and having been in summer before, I was disappointed that the wonderful walking trails around the property were not maintained in winter. Plowing made them inaccessible, at least from the Chalet side, not sure about Grand Lodges side. But thankful for the plowing so we could get our car out, so I will just have to come back in summer!
Wonderful vacation, wish we could have stayed a few more days!
The condo was very organized, clean, and well-maintained. Tons of activities for children (toys, books, games). Our 5 and 2 year old loved the train track, pool toys, and bunk beds. Steps away from the pool and a very short walking distance to the main street of town. We enjoyed the schnitzel and Pilsner Urquell at the Glacier Haus nearby.
It's obvious from the start that this is a real home for the owners and the pride of ownership is evident in all the little details that make your vacation stay so easy and pleasurable. The kitchen is the best stocked kitchen of any rental I've ever stayed in. The family room couch is so comfy and perfect for curling up on after a day of skiing. There are so many toys, games and movies to keep everyone happy. They even provide snow shoes and sleds! The location is perfect and an easy drive to multiple resorts. We will most definitely stay here again.
We are a family of four with twin 11 year old daughters.We travel everywhere and use VRBO a lot. This place is at the top of our list. It is a home rather than a bare bones rental. It has everything a family would want, and the owners are efficient and accommodating. The place is everything they say it is and we couldn't recommend it more highly.
Needed a last minute getaway for our family of 4. The owners, Debbie & Brent, were quick to respond and easy to do business with. We arrived Friday evening and were astounded as to how clean the condo was (we're neat freaks). We immediately headed to the pool (within sight, but not sound - which is perfect) and found the soaking tub Brent had mentioned. Our boys were two hours late getting to bed, but were both thrilled to have their own bunk beds. In the AM, we found everything needed to cook a great breakfast and packed our lunch to hit the Mt. Hood Fruit Loop. Our weekend was packed with adventure, but I think what the boys liked best, besides their bunk beds, were the musical instruments and games. The owners clearly know a vacation rental that's well stocked is like a home away from home. We highly recommend this unit in Collins Lake Resort - you never know what you'll get in another unit, but this one is impeccable and well stocked for everything you need (panini press, quesadilla iron ...). Save your time and energy and book this condo now!
We had an incredible 4 night stay. The condo was Immaculate, well-appointed and comfortable. We loved the charming mountain/ski theme decor and the fabulous swimming pool, hot tub and soaking pool nestled in the forest. The kids loved the downstairs game area. The condo is well located with nearby hiking, adventures on Mt Hood and great for day trips to Hood River and Portland. Thanks for a great vacation.
Collins Lake Resort, Government Camp, 55 miles from Portland. We are up the road from Rhodedendron in Government Camp, OR right in the heart of the mountain.....closest to every ski resort, mountain lake, and in the snow zone during winter!
