Beautiful, historic lodge with skiing nearby and an amazing view of the mountain. This place really needs no introduction. You're obviously paying for the location and the history if you stay here, but you don't need to stay here to visit. You can experience the beauty of Mount Hood without staying here, and you can also eat here without staying here. That said, it's a cool place to stay if you're up for it. The best part is the huge amounts of snow here in the winter.
Magical, mysterious, and ridiculously beautiful historic lodge! The heavy boulder rock walls and huge wooden buttresses with hand carved accents and massive wooden doors with forged iron handles and original wooden plank floors provide a tactile glimpse into days long past. Lots of great museum quality historic Indian memorabilia on display provides a rich local history. Spend your days exploring the Mount Hood and your evenings curled up beside one of the many wood burning fireplaces with a tasty treat from the restaurant and bar. There’s gear rentals onsite plus a couple shops to help fuel your outdoor adventures. Finally, the rooms are cozy, rustic, and very comfortable with jaw dropping views of the mountain and surrounding forests. Definitely worth the visit regardless of the season!
