Welcome to your Mt. Hood vaca...tion getaway in our very clean open floor plan, ‘studio-style’ 1 sleeping room condo unit, comfortably sleeps up to 4 in same room.

The condo unit is on the 2nd floor facing West outside the sliding patio door (for the best views of Ski Bowl in the entire village!!!). No other unit in the building has a sliding glass patio door facing Ski Bowl and overlooking the year-round geothermal heated pool. This particular unit has a walk-out deck outside the patio door where you can sit quietly overlooking the heated pool below and you can sit on the covered deck to watch the sunset over the Ski Bowl resort. There really aren’t any nicer views of this part of Ski Bowl anywhere on the mountain! The rental unit includes portable chairs for your use on the outdoor deck.
The unit is located in the historic Thunderhead Lodge building (boasts one of the best locations in Government Camp: the classic Thunderhead Lodge! This unit is one of only 10 condo units in the building. The Thunderhead Lodge was originally home of the historic “Ski Way” aerial tram that transported skiers and passengers up to Timberline Lodge (in the 1950’s).
There's a very cool YouTube video if you search for "Ski Way aerial tram".
Stay in the historic building that once served as the base terminal in Government Camp. Our building has great community amenities like a heated geothermal year-round pool, a large recreation room with wood-burning fireplace, wet bar, pool table and foosball, and outstanding views of Mt. Hood and Ski Bowl. And you’ll feel like you’re ‘on the mountain’ when the lights come on at nighttime for Ski Bowl night-skiing!
Your own private getaway within the lodge is fully equipped with everything you might need to enjoy a ski getaway or mountain biking weekend for up to four guests. There is a pull-out queen size sofa bed and a separate full-size bed in the same sleeping room. The studio style sleeping arrangement has a full kitchen, full bath, cable TV with DVD/VHS players and a stock of movies for both adults and children…. The building offers free accessible WiFi, and the Village of Government Camp has several spots for WiFi connectivity too!
Our fully stocked kitchen has everything you should require for a nice breakfast, lunch or dinner before or after your big adventures on the mountain! Refrigerator with freezer, oven with stovetop, microwave, coffeemaker, pots, pans, dishes, and utensils. If cooking on vacation isn’t your thing, then walk across the street to the brewpub restaurant or up the hill into the Village of Govy for a big night on the town…..
