Nice place near to Timberline Ski
FIrst time renting a condo unit here. You can book direct with the resort website but they do not accept foriegn credit cards online. I managed to find our booking from Agoda for a unit in the same development and they then require you to use the Vacasa app to manage the process and need to submit a lease agreement etc. Additional fees apply so the price you see is not the final price paid to Agoda but it still worked out slightly cheaper for similar sized unit. We could not locate the unit with the instructions given and stopped by the management office for directions but there was a very rude lady who refused to provide any help because we did not book direct. But there was a very nice lady from the office that came out and gave us the right directions and a development map. It would have been helpful if that map was also given as part of the check in instructions. The unit itself was clean and everything worked except the wifi but it was quickly resolved the next day with a temp password once we called the management company for the unit. Heating was great and all the appliances were working well including washer and dryer. A really comfortable stay and suitable for cooking meals for our family of 4. Location is great and 10 min drive to TImberline for Skiing and government camp has a small grocery / gift store which we bought additional supplies.. I will definitely consider staying there again.
More info would have been helpful
We rented a condo for the weekend. The owner gave info about arrival, departure and care of the property. It would have been helpful to know that the ‘2 car garage’ is single file-not side by side; the stairs between floors are 15 steps up a 45 degree angle; and the hours that the pool and office are ‘open’. Housekeeping left something to be desired: moldy coffee grounds in the coffee pot basket; pipe ‘scum’ came out when the tub jets were activated; and used aluminum foil left in the BBQ. However- those were all easily corrected and all other aspects of the property were good.
Family reunion site
Approx. 100 of us rented multiple units for a family reunion. We stayed in units 5 and 6. Both condos were clean and spacious. Well stocked, but do know you likely need to bring items such as ziplock bags, Saran Wrap, etc. units came with dishwashing and laundry detergent. The property is lovely. Elevator access available. Nice walk to Government Camp. Would recommend to others.
Wanted to get away for a few days or rest and relaxation with my sister and rented a "Chalet" at the Collins lake resort government camp. I will say the word Chaley should be used loosely when thinking of this place. The photos posted are far from what you will receive when you arrive there. The people who check you in are rude. It was a woman who was looking at my girlfriend with death eyes. (My girlfriend is very pretty) The accommodation was musty and had the scent of mold. The beds had springs you could feel in your back, the bedding was the cheapest of the cheap. Bathroom towels were tiny like face cloths. The price was cheap and it certainly makes sense why. Thank fully we only paid for 3 days which was 2.9 days to much. I don't recommend this place if you like things that are well run and nicely kept. It is mystery how this place has as many good ratings as it has.
We stayed at the Grand Lodge #26 over the weekend and enjoyed it a lot. The place is huge and very nice. It was stocked with all the dishes and cooking stuff we needed. Had a ton of games to play and puzzles. The lake view was amazing and we tried the heated pool that wasn't as warm as we expected. But still fun! The hot tub was pretty much occupied by guys with beers so we didn't go in. We figured all that beer had to go somewhere and they were pretty much parked in the hot tub for hours lol. The grill caught on fire the first night due to all the grease accumulated in the grease pan. It was pretty scary but we put it out eventually by putting snow on it. The lightning in the place was fancy but sort of dim. Could use more light. There is a nice trail/cross country ski/snowshoe trail right across the road from the entrance - through some gorgeous snowy woods. The trail around the Collins Lake is not in use in the winter, apparently. So don't count on it. Overall- the place is great and highly recommended.
