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.

    Above and beyond

    Staff seems genuinely keen on making us feel welcomed, restored, appreciated. There 's a family like atmosphere among all employees, making us feel at home. The building's craftsmanship and grand scale are a wonder to behold. Dining in rustic or elegant venues, enjoying drinks on outdoor patios, relaxing in pool and spa - all with phenomenal views.

    Timeless Gem

    Wonderful lodge with tons of history, was amazed at the amount of snow remaining here. Wonderful hikes around the property. Would recommend taking the chairlift just for the scenic tour of the mountain as we were fortunate enough to be blessed with a clear day.

    A night at the lodge

    The several mile ascent up Mt. Hood to the lodge is beautiful. The lodge itself is breathtaking. So much detail went into building this structure in 1937. It was amazing to watch the video available about building the lodge. The first floor is like a mini museum. Staff was friendly and helpful. Everything was clean and well maintained.

    Shining comes alive here

    Always went past it, but this time we stayed. The historic lodge has been used in the Shining movie and Lassie? TV show. Weather was snowing so added a nice touch. Rooms were small, but ours were warm. During the stay the earth shoo, but the hotel held together fine. We no longer ski, but the younger crowds were up at the ski lifts at 8 AM.

    Wonderful historic mountain lodge

    First time to stay at this property and we loved it. At 6000 foot elevation there was still snow on the ground in mid June. And people skiing! The hotel was opened in 1937 and it's a historical gem. The main lobby is gorgeous. The staff were friendly and very helpful. You can save a little money by having dinner at the second floor bar/cafe as the main dining room is really pricey. And understand that you're not going to have many of the in-room amenities you'd find in most modern hotels. We had a second floor room with a single queen bed which was very comfortable. However the room was very small but the remodeled bathroom was great. We enjoyed our experience very much and recommend this property to those looking for a stay at a historic property in an absolutely amazing setting.
