What Past Guests Are Saying
The Hefflin crew
Short little stay in a cute cabin...
Surprising how many people were able to fit in this unit. We had almost 10 in our group. Staff is great and accommodating.
Lots of sleeping areas -- comfy, warm and clean. Living/dining/kitchen area a little small to comfortably accommodate the number of people this unit can sleep. But a for a 2-night trip, that works fine for us.
Several issues - broken door locks and unusable washer and dryer. Unit is very dated and rather tired, especially carpet and couches. Needs a facelift, for sure.
Cynthia C.'s review of Cabin-style in a 3 bdr Condo in the Heart
We enojoyed reading during the rainstorm in this coozy cabin. The kids had plenty of room to hang out. This is our third visit to this cabin and we continue to enjoy its location and convenience to skiing, snow shoe and cross country trials. This is a magical spot.
Great location, terrible condition/management
Location was amazing, but the condition of the property was poor. The down stairs bathroom sink leaked water and it sounded like the person above you was going to fall through the ceiling when they walked. I moved to a bunk bed upstairs for the second night to avoid the mess in the downstairs bathroom and noise. Management then harassed me about not paying for extra guests due to using multiple beds and my credit card was charged an additional $86. So be fair warned….pick a bed and stick with it because you are apparently charged for every item you use in the rental home. I thought $250 dollars a night might at least get you a rental in fair condition, but I was wrong. I will not rent from this company again, but Government Camp and the condo location was superb! There are plenty of other great resort and Government Camp now with comparable prices and in much better condition.
We found the Edelweiss an oddly shaped space. It suited our needs, but given the overall square footage, we found the kitchen/living/dining area a bit cramped.
Your condo is over rated and does not live up to your advertisem
Out side area look like bums had been living there . I can tell you one thing you could come to Mesa AZ In our winter peak time and find much better comenndations for that amount money .

SSWSC Summer Training Camp, Hood, 2010
Mostly we enjoyed the stay.
The cleanliness of the unit was questionable. One look under the beds and one can see that the last time there was a vacumn there was in the last century.
There was also some hard, late night partying going on with other residents. I had to speak with them about our diametrically opposed schedules. But that part is not your fault. And no one was badly injured in the ensuing melee.
The stay was pleasent but there were condoms in a bedroom drawer that my daughter got into. When I notified them about that they were in denial they were stating that they found nothing so in a sense I was lying! That is unprofessional and offensive. My daughter seemed to have some infection which I can't say for sure what it is until she goes to the family doctor. Will be in touch.

After making a last minute decision to find a place in Government Camp, we were initially discouraged in our attempts to find a pet friendly place for the weekend. We were very happy to finally find this great place.
Nice place. I enjoyed it. But there were some minor things that should have been taken care of prior to our arrival such as NO lights working and chair broken. These were promptly repaired but calls had to be made to take care of that could have otherwise been avoided had the unit been inspected prior to our arrival. Other than that, we all enjoyed ourselves.
2009 Winter getaway
It was a great location not too far from the ski resorts. Also, just a walking distance to pubs and restaurants. The place is roomy and cozy! Got cable and free wi-fi!!! Thank you.

only thing that bothered us was trash , 2by4s and unsightley broken branches all over the grounds, other then that we had a wonderfull time
Response from Mt. Hood Vacation Rentals - 11/07/2009
Good to hear you had a great time. We will look into the construction debris and get that cleaned up.
Property was dark and noisey
Property was very dark and noisey. Seemed like the complex is where local workers live and they like to rather noisyAlso, smelled inside. Management was very helpful and thank you for providing a second fan.
Response from Mt. Hood Vacation Rentals - 11/07/2009
There are lots of tall trees all around the condo complex, so not as much sunlight will come in. And you stayed in Government Camp in the middle of summer, when the ski and snowboard camps are at their busiest. If you are young and energetic and love snow sports, the buzz is for you. But if you prefer a quieter vacation, we recommend staying in the lower villages of Rhododendron, Zigzag, Welches or Brightwood.
Evaluation of Edelweiss # 5 March 25-28
Overall the property was quite satisfactory. It was well eqquipped with very usable and plentiful ad good linens. On the first daywe had a problem with the upstairs bathroom drain being partially plugged so that the tub did not drain during a shower. One my sons unplugged the drain primarily hair, so the ladies would take a shower without standing in water. Someone should check this drain periodically. To me the overall price seemed a little steep for the quality of the accomadations, but I am not familiar with equivalent facilities or newer faciltries and the price range of such facilitie. We had an enjoyable family stay.
Nice stay for our spring break!
We enjoyed our stay. The condo was very comfortable and had lots of amenities that we enjoyed. We'll stay again!

I would definitely rent a property from this firm again. They are courteous, the properties are beautiful, and the rates are more than fair.

James A.'s review of Edelweiss #5
I would probably not recommend this property do to the fact it was fairly pricey and yet other than the fact there was snow out side there was no reason. It was decent but not nice. Reading the folder, everything is a $25 charge. The warning about the poor plumbing and then the threat of a $25 minimum charge if you can't get it to work is lame. Someones car alarm was perpetually going off through the evening. Not the end of the world. Out of concern I called the after hours number left a message and received a call back in which the woman seemed nice enough. Yet in her greeting I was told. "Even though this isn't an emergency I decided to call you back." I don't even remember what exactly we paid. I think it was to the tune of $279 dollars a night. For a mediocre apartment at best except with an overtone of doing anything out of line earns you a $25 dollar min. fine.
In the end, it served a purpose with nothing exceptional to speak of.

We will rent again but will probably seek a larger living area for eating, movies,and playing games, etc.
Kim R.'s review of Edelweiss #5
The property is excellent - lovely fluffy towels, plenty of good quality pillows. Dishes, bowls and utensils are plentiful. Location is excellent with a short walk to Government Camp facilities and an easy stroll to Ski Bowl. We will be back.
We loved the condo...
We loved the condo and the location was perfect. We towed our kids on a sled everywhere! Having small kids, they played in all 3 bunk beds on the 2nd floor. We were then charged an additional cleaning fee of $150 to make the additional beds, even though they weren't used. The property management company was very inflexible on this point. I understand extra cleaning for extra cleaning, but that was equivalent to $50/bed. I can't imagine they are paying their cleaning crew that much.
While I appreciate the customer service, the condo was not worth that price. It was difficult to locate light switches and the ground floor toilet made noise 24 hours...enough to keep people awake through the nite.
Coeur d'Alene, ID
Very nice place!
We really liked our lodging... the only slight inconveniences were 1) we had to drive 10 miles past to pick up our key, and 2) it was very difficult finding our suite in the dark as the numbers were spotty. Otherwise nice service and nice place!

We couldn't reach anyone at the office to announce we would arrive later, because there was only a 800-number on the papers we received. Later, the office people recognized this was indeed the management's fault. Still, we managed to arrive at 6 pm, but the office was already closed and again we were not able to reach anyone. Even the owner of the opposite gasstation tried to reach someone she knew, but it didn't work. We were therefore forced to book 2 rooms in the nearby resort. When we claimed back the first night, your office clerck was very impolite and refused. Thus we paid the full rental sum, although it was clear we tried to follow all your procedures! I often plan itineraries in the States for friends and family and friends of family and you can surely unerstand your properties will never be offered in future travels of ourselves and the people I book for!
Response from Mt. Hood Vacation Rentals - 09/14/2008
Actually our employees received all calls from the guest and they returned over 1/2 dozen phone calls between about 4-8 PM. We are not sure why they did not get the phone calls.

We love the location...walk to everything in Govt. Camp. Dryer broke while we were there and it did not get repaired. Hard to be in the snow with 6 kids and no dryer!
