Timberline Lodge

Legendary. Awe-inspiring. Steeped in rich Pacific Northwest history and built by hand to withstand the ages. 

The lodge guest rooms reflect the era of handmade furnishings and hand-painted artwork. This isn’t your average, run-of-the-mill ski lodge.

Built in 1936 and declared a National Historic Landmark in 1977, Timberline Lodge is one of Oregon’s most popular tourist attractions, drawing nearly two million visitors every year. Considered an architectural wonder, it’s still being used for its original intent—a magnificent ski lodge and mountain retreat for all to enjoy. 

Timberline is home to North America’s longest ski season. In the height of winter, the ground floor of the lodge is typically fully buried in snow, with entry through a snow tunnel, or directly into the second floor. The lodge, combined with with its cozy rooms, pub, restaurant and resident St. Bernards (Bruno and Heidi), is a welcome relief after a full day on the slopes.

    Historic and interesting!

    We didn’t stay overnight here, but stopped to see the lodge and hike around a bit. We watched the film about the history of the lodge and browsed the displays of historical objects . We definitely thought it was worth our time and nice to get so close to Mt, Hood. You can do a little hiking or more (with a permit, I believe) There are nice chairs outside the lodge and a restaurant as well. Worth a visit!!

    Great food, views and venue

    I was taken here by some freinds recently - they said it was a mountain lodge. That is true - but it is the most wonderful place - perched under the peak of Mt Hood, with stunning views from the dining room over the mountains to distant peaks beyond. And the food ... was incredible - two of us had scallops and I wold fully recommedd it as a choice. Thick, juicy, with the most makzing mushrooms to accompany. Definetly an expereince to relish and repeat.

    Gorgeous Lodge and Stunning View of Mt. Hood

    We couldn't get reservations so we just visited for a couple of hours. It's a National Historic Landmark. Mt. Hood is literally in the back yard of the lodge. Staff was very nice. So many unique historic features to this lodge. Would have loved to stay. Great gift shop. Visit with Heidi, the St Bernard, and mascot of the lodge. Get your stamp for your park handbook at the lodge checkin desk. You have to ask for it.

    Pet Fee Ridiculous

    Although this hotel is historic and the views are exceptional, the rooms are incredibly dated. We toured all over OR with our 2 little pups and this hotels pet fees were outrageous. $75. most are $25-45... And the carpets in the room are 50 + years old, industrial, dark grey, dirty... Regardless, I think it is worth going up to see and walk around, but pass on staying...

    Pretty views

    I haven’t stayed here but do come from time to time to walk around and explore the area. The parking attendant people are rude but the area is beautiful and a fun time for exploring. The views are pretty and they let you walk around with your dogs but you just can’t take pups inside the lodge.
