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.

    Beautiful lodge, very small rooms

    Very small room in classic old lodge-much like a National Park lodge. Tiny bathroom, but the shower is adequate. Comfortable feather beds. Building has its problems with heating/ventilation. Lots of lounge areas with views of Mt. Hood, and good for social distancing. A bit overpriced, even though the special we had included breakfast. Outdoor hot tub is really nice.

    Not so shiny visit of The Shining

    We picked probably THE cloudiest day to visit this iconic lodge. The inside is beautiful with all the hand-carved wood, from the front door to the various animals featured on the stair-rails. There is a room where you can watch a film of the construction of the building. Stop and have a drink by the enormous fireplace….just don’t get snowed in!

    Beautiful building with amazing views but service is lacking

    The Lodge is a beautiful historic building with spectacular views of Mt Hood. It's 5 stars in terms of the location, the scenery and the historical relevance. Where it lacks is in service (which might be a byproduct of the pandemic). They seem to be perpetually short staffed and you're "on your own" if you have a question or could use some help. The rooms are small and there's no vanity or shelving to store your toiletries so we ended up keeping our toothpaste, shaving cream and other articles on the bathroom floor! Glad we stayed there this one time, but wouldn't go back. Next time we'll stay in Government Camp.

    Lovely lodge

    Took a tour of the lodge and then had dinner there. The views are fantastic, but little snow yet. The lodge itself is interesting and the murals are all from the Roosevelt era and part of the works program. The only drawback - the price of a glass of wine! Highest I've ever paid for house wine. But, worth it for the setting and the views. They also have a great giftshop.

    Enjoyed our stay!

    We only got to stay one night but had a great time. Unfortunately it was raining and actually snowing some. It has always been a bucket list item to stay in this iconic lodge. Our room was nicely appointed. While there are still some limitations due to Covid I thought the staff did a great job in the hotel and the restaurant. A slight complaint was the price because it was $300 or more per night . But you only live once so if you’ve ever wanted to stay here it’s a great option!
