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.

    Rustic charm. Not hot showers

    I love the experience to come with the family. I am especially looking forward to when they have the pool and hot tub open and improved. My biggest pet peeve is that the water in the shower doesn’t get hot. Warm at best. Food is decent but pricey. Used to have a lot more life before Covid.

    Cool if you are a movie buff

    Only the outside looks like the Overlook Hotel from the Movie “The Shining.” The gift shop has some movie tees etc. go on a day no one would ski or the line just to drive up their road maybe a few hours. Saw a HuGE roach inside front door. Not much parking available.

    Not One I want to experience again!

    The pillows may be fluffy, however they go flat & don’t provide any support. The catered dinner for the Prins/Erickson wedding left much to be desired. The prime rib was over done & dry. For breakfast the only option was the buffet & when asked how much just toast would cost it was the same as the buffet. At least I can say the workers were friendly & helpful. I can honestly say I would only come for skiing and not any overnights! JPrins

    Best place on Earth!

    Timberline Lodge on Hood Mountain is one of the most beautiful places on Earth! During my three nights and 4 days there, I enjoyed the best fine dining I have ever experienced. I loved the gift shop, the museum, the cozy and centralized lodge with its huge fire warming the entire three level space. Each morning there was an amazing breakfast spread with everything from salmon to mini cinnamon rolls and fruit smoothies. The staff reflected all the professionalism throughout the lodge. Truly, my favorite place to visit!

    Charming and Unique!

    This hotel has charm & character galore. The room was incredibly spacious, though the bathroom is tiny, with few surfaces to put anything down. Walls are thin, so it can be a bit noisy. They recognize that this can be an issue and give you complimentary earplugs! They do ask for quiet hours starting at 10, and sleeping was not really an issue. The public spaces are interesting, cozy and warm, and the dinner in the Cascade Dining Room was one of the best I've ever had! It snowed unexpectedly overnight and we were in a rental car without a snow brush. I was surprised that the hotel did not have any snow removal tools for guests to borrow, nor did they offer to help with luggage as the parking lot was a slushy mess. It was unfortunate that because of the weather we couldn't see much of the surrounding area, but it's really a place to be experienced at least once.
