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.

    One of the Great American Lodges

    Timeberline Lodge is a gift to us all. It is truly one one of the great American Lodges. We're in our 70's and have begun making an annual trek to the Lodge each winter. We stay in one of the fireplace rooms. The ambience is amazing. The stonework and woodwork throughout the Lodge are an historic record that has held up beautifully over the years. Our dinner in the Cascade Dining Room was a meal to be remembered, and the price was easy to forget. If you're looking to get away for a great ski vacation or just a romantic getaway, Timeberline Lodge is your dstination - great setting, great food, great skiing.

    Very much worse than expected

    On arrival in the dark no sign visible saying we had arrived. On entering no sign showing where was the reception desk. When we found it the staff were distinctly offhand. Our room, previously booked, was at 68 degrees; very cool. The bed is 4ft 6in for 2 people, only one bedside table and lamp. No kettle. No gowns.Basin doesn’t drain. Hot water may arrive but not run long enough yet. Not recommended. Quite expensive at $316 a night; pretty poor value

    Fantastic all around!

    An all-around magical experience. Wonderfully friendly and happy staff, excellent food, great skiing, top notch customer service, and a story that should not be missed. Walking around inside that lodge is a testament to the power of the WPA and the incredible things that can happen with hard work and ingenuity. We are lucky to be able to experience this lodge and its surroundings. We will definitely be back!

    Iconic Ski vacation in the people's palace

    Timberline Lodge is a masterpiece of artisans and craftspeople who in the depths of the great depression designed and built one of the most stunning building on the west coast and an iconic ski-in/ski-out lodge. But this is not just a beautiful historic hotel. It is an incredible gathering place for family and community. The staff at Timberline (from the front desk, waiters, bartenders and housekeepers in the the Lodge) to the tun shop gurus and lift operators are all incredible hosts. They make every guest feel welcomed and are excited to share their enthusiasm for the mountain. The new chef has upped the game in the Cascade Dinning room with dishes that focus on top quality ingredients without too much fuss. We loved his quote, "often the most important ingredient is what you leave off the plate." By the way it is worth the wait for an afternoon beer and pizza in the Blue Ox (the new pizza with boquerones, muscles and peppers is inspired. We had a group of 15 people at Timberline for 5 days (2 unforgettable nights at Silcox Hut and 3 in the Lodge). We felt as if we were being welcomed by family. We loved skiing, hanging out in the hot tub and sauna, playing games and reading books by the fire and having epic meals. We HIGHLY recommend Timberline Lodge.

    Grand Historic Lodge!

    We stayed here over the Christmas Holiday! Wonderful old historic lodge with hard working wonderful staff. This lodge was build as a CCC project and completed in about 2 yrs which is amazing. Especially when you see the craftsmanship of the wood, rock, metal and fabric finishes. It's beautiful and the efforts to keep it maintained are very much worth it. We had three wonderful dinners in the Cascade dinning room and every one of them was first class in good food and service. We had and issue with heat in our room. Sam at the front desk and Trish with the hotel took care of us and the issue and a positive and professional way. Josh in the dinning room keeps that place running smooth. The lodge decorations were beautiful with a massive tree. I would highly recommend it for a special holiday!
