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.

    Cleaning urgently needed

    Today was the third time visiting the lodge this year. The first time I thought maybe the cleaning person was sick or something, but today I think I can be certain that that some one is just not doing their job. I can believe how dirty the whole facility is, Restrooms, dining areas, exhibits, etc. Next time I will get my pass at Hoodoo.

    Wonderful lodge

    Built during the WPA wonderful log work and animal carvings. Central support a first growth Douglas fir with staircase embedded into the spiral of the log. The stone fireplace work and overall feeling of the structure is warming .

    The rooms are historic and have their whimsy but the accommodations are not exactly comfortable. The Ram’s head was okay, the menu was lunch type food. I was surprised that the bar closed at 6:00 pm. I understand that they were short staffed but the service was lacking.

    Beautiful historic lodge

    We stayed at the lodge for the first time this November and loved the beauty of the lodge, common areas, fireplaces and amazing views! Rooms could use a deep cleaning and beds are not comfortable (mattresses & pillows probably needed replacing 20 years ago!). Disappointing. I have a severe food allergy and we requested a fridge (a $30 charge). Fridge was so filthy & loud we asked to have it removed the next morning. If rooms were a lot cleaner & bedding was updated…this could be an amazing hotel. As it is now…it’s just okay.

    Beautifully preserved history

    Timberline Lodge is not luxurious by today’s standards, but staff makes up for it with great service. This amazing, hand built lodge, a product of the depression era CCC/WPA, has been restored with the help of a group—Friends of Timberline—that has kept changes to a minimum and true to the original feel of the lodge. Rooms have been upgraded without changing their rustic feel and have all of today’s amenities. Food in the dining room is superior, staff is friendly and from many parts of the country. A day lodge for skiers now keeps traffic out of the building and makes for a more relaxing stay. It’s a fantastic step back in time, surrounded by beautiful Oregon
