TripAdvisor Ratings & Reviews
Poor everything, minus the hot tub.
I was royally screwed, from the no lift tickets discount, no shuttle, bath tub malfunctions, scales and other inedible products in the tavern food and lastly the free breakfast which includes stale pastries and flavorless oatmeal. At the very least they could have eggs and/or bagels. The only upside to my stay was the hot tubs. If the hot tubs are worth the money for your stay and the risk of getting screwed over and not even offered some sort of a refund then this is the resort for you.
We stayed for the Christmas holiday and had a great time. The staff was very friendly and welcoming, and we loved the proximity to the ski trails. On our last day we discovered the x-county ski trail the resort owns and had a great time. We appreciated the fresh ground coffee provided for the room and the amazing heat - the rooms really warm up fast and stay warm. We thought it would have been nice to have had access to more information from the resort about their ski areas - there wasn't any information posted in the office and the online information wasn't up-to-date. We deeply appreciated the staff who worked over the Christmas holiday. A few things we noticed that have nothing to do with the staff were that our room had a "basement" feel to it, since the only window opened up to a very public walkway, so we mostly kept the blinds shut. We thought it would have been nice to have had way to let in light without our room being on public display - a set of up/down blinds would have improved the situation. The continental breakfast had homemade muffins and cinnamon rolls (a nice touch!), but we wished the coffee had been brewed stronger. The service in the restaurant/tavern was great- we really enjoyed the servers and the friendliness of the staff. The food in the restaurant/tavern was good but uneven - some nights were better than others. For example, we had a great pot roast one night, but then the next night we were served a side of "stuffing" that was just dried bread crumbs. Overall we had good time and enjoyed the proximity to the snow.
Thanks to Susan and all of the other people on the staff at the resort who out of their way to make our stay an enjoyable one, and to make it fun for our young son to be there. They don't make resorts like this anymore - what with the slightly-dated but still attractive buildings and grounds as well as the personal touches of hospitality - so it was like a blast from the past. (Good coffee too!)
Excellent Mt. Hood View!
We rented the private log home for our family vacation. We had 7 adults, 2 teenagers, and 2 babies. The only thing that would have made this house better would be just one more bathroom, but that's only because there were 9 of us! The setting could not have been better ... the view of Mt. Hood from the back yard was breathtaking! We thoroughly enjoyed the large yard (kids played volleyball and babies crawled in the soft, green grass) and the hot tub in the cool evenings was so nice. The kitchen in the home was nicely updated (including a wine refrigerator) and worked quite well for us. Two bags of local coffee were provided when we checked in ... a very nice touch. There are plenty of hiking trails in the area. Check out Tamanawas Falls Trail. Staff were very friendly and helpful. The only small criticism I have is for the continental breakfast provided at the Crooked Tree Tavern. Having a full kitchen, we cooked breakfast every day except one during our stay. We were running behind one morning and decided to run over to the main part of the resort to grab a couple of pastries rather than cook ourselves. It was about 9:00 a.m. Much of the breakfast was already gone, including coffee and pastries. We didn't see anyone to ask about refilling anything either. To be fair, it is quite possible that refills were in the works back in the kitchen and we just didn't hang around long enough to see. I felt bad for the other lodgers who were not staying in a house with a kitchen who had come down to get breakfast and found none. There were several such lodgers in the breakfast area when we were there and found little to eat. Other than this one small slip, the resort was very nice. We would definitely stay here again.
Beautiful Room with King Size Bed
Check in was easy and they had some games and a small selection of snacks/drinks/beer for sale in the office. My husband and I stayed in the lodge for a night in June. The room was spacious with a desk, small sitting area, mini fridge, coffee maker and even a wine fridge. There was a microwave and toaster outside of the room. The room had gorgeous wood panels on all the walls and ceiling adding to the cabin feel. It seems like a neat place to stay especially in the winter. There weren't any scenic views from our room but it was quiet. If it were me, I'd do some work on the grounds and maybe add a garden and some nice landscaping, walking trails and outside seating areas out back where there is a little bit of a view of the foothills. It's maybe 15 minutes off of Highway 35 on a nice paved road. There are some hiking trails nearby although I believe you have to drive to the trailhead. Tamanawas falls was about a 20 minute drive away, but I highly recommend it! The restaurant was pretty good and the bartender was friendly and had some great beers on tap. Happy hour prices were nice.
