Very comfortable house with Lots of beds and a great spot to hang snow gear.
Erin W.Dec 2019
Works great for lots of people! Great location too. Wish it had been more clean upon arrival, hot tub water murky, mud room full of recycle and trash/diapers spread out on the lawn. We did email management but never received a response. We didn't let this get in the way of enjoying the mountain. Good family memories were made.
Thank you for your review, Erin. We apologize for the cleanliness oversights you encountered during your stay. The property manager has ensured all these issues are taken care of. We hope to see you again!

The floor plan is wonderful for a large group and having the two kitchen made cooking an early Christmas dinner a breeze. Kristopher the manager was so helpful and made our stay pleasant. We will be back.
Robert B.Nov 2019
What a great place. Perfect for our group!!
Dennis D.Oct 2019
We were able to all be together or have separate conversations. It was well stocked with blankets and kitchen items including some spices and coffee. There was a home atmosphere and the furniture was comfortable.
Peggy K.Aug 2019
Big house, plenty of dishes and silverware. Comfortable beds. Hot tub water was murky, someone came quickly to try to fix it but it really needs to be drained.
Thanks, Peggy! We have taken care of the hot tub!
Claudia E.Jul 2019
This is the perfect house for a large family gathering. The four bedrooms each with a king sized bed and at least one set of bunk beds, plus 3 full baths will accommodate multiple families. The large table allowed the 15 of us to sit down to meals together! The house is situated right in Government Camp, close to Ski Bowl parks, Trillium Lake and Timberline. We would book this house again.
Debra L.May 2019
Place like home, accommodating extended family
Sage S.Dec 2018
Just minutes away from the mountain and walking distance to the cute little town pubs. Very spacious accommodations and they offered late check out for a small fee! Would definitely stay again.
Cheryl R.Dec 2018
Comfortable home for a family of 17. We enjoyed the hot tub and wood stoves in a snowy winter wonderland!
phil w.Dec 2018
We enjoyed our stay here overall. Plenty of room and lots of amenities. There could be some improvements though. The showers had issues getting to a proper temperature. They were either cold or scalding but if you messed around for 15 minutes you could get them lukewarm. Plus most door handles were in need of an upgrade. Also one of the electrical outlets was missing a cover plate. But we would stay here again as the positives outweighed the negatives
It was discovered the temperature handles are stripped and not controlling temperature as they should. We have replaced one and will be getting the others replaced as soon as possible. We have also replaced the missing outlet cover. Thank you!
Kimberly V.Sep 2018
Plenty of space for all my family, the set up was great, plenty of room to hang out with the family as well as space to get away and have time alone
Neil K.Aug 2018
This home is comfortable and cozy with a million beds to sleep in, so it works for big groups. However, be aware that this one is more cost effective than the other for a reason and it has been well used and is in need of some updating. We rented three houses in Government Camp this summer and this was the most cost effective with the most number of beds. We enjoyed our stay, we slept comfortably, but this house would do with a smidge of freshening up. We would stay again.
Matt D.Jan 2018
This was the perfect house for our group over New Years. Close to the mountain for skiing and snowboarding, and right down the road from many restaurants/ stores in Government Camp. Would 100% recommend this place to anyone.
Jason N.Dec 2017
The three levels give plenty of options for the group to split up and do different things.
Erik H.Dec 2017
Everything we needed
Jake M.Dec 2017
Great place and location capable of hosting large groups. Secluded, and great loxation near the mountain.
Pedro A.Nov 2017
Nice place to stay and enjoy a large family gathering with plenty of space!
Judy K.Nov 2017
The cabin had plenty of space for our group. Equipped with just about everything you need.
We had beautiful weather and enjoyed 2 hikes, one right up the street from the cabin.
Janice P.Aug 2017
We stayed in this chalet for a family reunion. We had 11 family members - 7 adults and 4 children. The chalet was spacious for our large group with plenty of beds and a huge long table that everybody could eat at. Everything was clean and in working order.
Because there are only 4 bedrooms with multiple bunks in each, some folks had to share a room with others who were not immediate family, so I can imagine that might be awkward for some groups. In our extended family, it worked out alright. We loved the location - walking distance to the cute shops, restaurants, and ski bowl area of Government Camp. We loved the town and found the people very relaxed and friendly. We did some day excursions and hikes, and really enjoyed the area.
My only small bit of negative feedback is that we all found the beds in the chalet very hard, and we had a lot of complaints about bad sleeps from our group. Some nice cushy mattress covers would really help.
Esther O.Aug 2017
Our three families of six adults and four children were very comfortable at this house. The added bonus of the separate apartment on the lower floor was perfect for us, the grandparents, to have our own space, kitchen and bathroom.
I would give it a five star rating except for the rough terrain leading to the house and the poor lighting in the living room.

Great space for a large group. We filled the house with 18 and it never felt stuffy or cramped. Great location within walking distance to downtown Govy, a short walk to SkiBowl East, and very close to nearby crosscountry ski trails. The hot tub is perfect after a long day of playing in the snow. Definitely recommend.
Robyn W.Dec 2016
Great location! Not fancy, but perfect for kids and pets.
Katie P.Dec 2016
We had a great time staying here this last weekend. There was a lot of snow while we were there. The driveway was quite packed with snow but we had vehicles that were able to make it up fine. The house had a lot of room to accommodate a lot of people. It was easy walk to town and to play in the snow!
Glenn M.Oct 2016
Great space for a large group. Comfortable. Casual. Enjoyed having the woodstove. Conveniently located near town of Government Camp, while being off the main strip.
Scott S.Aug 2016
This was a great home base for a few families to gather for a weekend exploring Mt Hood trails, and the nearby lakes.
Becky H.Jul 2016
We had 11-18 people stay and visit throughout our busy week and we had plenty of room and beds.
Scott W.Jun 2016
Awesome place for our group of 13 adults and 3 dogs! Plenty of space and lots of beds.
Charlotte A.Jan 2016
We enjoyed our stay very much. The house was great with plenty of room for the 14 of us. We especially appreciated the large table in the dining room, the hot tub, and the wood burning stoves. Place was clean and kitchen had all needed utensils. Only problem was snow removal by the town, make certain you have chains, AWD or winter tires. The road to the house is steep and narrow and we had to park our minivan on the main street and walk to the house. Would still rent again.
Neal B.Aug 2015
Very comfortable home with all the basic necessities and more to make our stay very satisfying!
Rahul K.May 2015
This was a fantastic place to stay for any duration with some caveats. It has pretty much everything you need at a walkable distance plus all attractions just few minutes away. So the location rocks. The condition of the place including cleanliness is very good. Now to the caveats ....
The location is not good to get a good signal/reception for your mobile and to top that the WIFI never worked. I have given strict review comments to the owner about it. Either they should fix it or stop advertizing that they have any sort of internet connectivity. They have written in their instructions that if it does not work call century link but guess what I'm not there to fix the internet :-). for us it was already not working when we stepped into the house and never worked till we left.
Bottom line - if access to the internet is a must (for us it was especially with kids) this is not a reliable place for you. The reception for your mobile is not good either inside the home. If you do not care for internet this is fantastic.
We apologize that the internet was not working for your stay. The Property Manager will look into that right away as it should have been available for you. We are glad that you enjoyed the house itself as it really is a fun one in a great spot!

Finally a rental that has plenty of bunk beds and queen/king beds in the same rooms! This is great for multiple families staying together. The kitchen was small but easily served our needs. Hot tub was lovely. We were surprised at how quiet it was despite its proximity to 26. And lots of stars at night. Very comfortable main spaces and bedrooms. And we got discounted tickets at Meadows, yea! Thoroughly enjoyed our stay, thanks!
April D.Jan 2015
Rustic, clean, great location. We loved the fireplace, and the big table where 17 of us sat to eat together. The hot tub was a hit after skiing. We walked to Charlie's on Friday and Saturday night to show Govy how to party!
The kitchen knives were the only dull thing about the place. Also, no proper cutting board. Lastly, a few of the locals were a little hostile to us when driving and having to share the tiny street.
Rachel C.Dec 2014
Great time staying at the cabin. The cabin sleeps 18, but it was perfect for our group of 12. Four families each with a couple and two kids would be fine, as each room is identical in set-up, with a king and a bunk bed.
Hot tub is in awesome shape. Good to know: it's under the eaves, which you have to be careful of because of falling snow chunks.
We came in December and it was beautiful, and it snowed nearly 2 feet in 72 hours. However, when we went to dig our cars out to go skiing, there wasn't a snow shovel, and the driveway is huge and slightly inclined at the place where it meets the street (which was plowed a couple of times, but still slick). The Vacasa people sent someone out, who found a snow shovel at another rental for us to use. The only problem with that was that it was cracked. So... just make sure that your rental has a snow shovel when you stay in Govy in the winter!
Vacasa was great. House was great. The house is not super-fancy, so if you are going for luxury accomodations, this may not do it for you. However, if you are semi-laid-back and just want a great cabin, this has it all. The kitchen was well-stocked with pans and grinder and blender and everything (even salt and tp)- thank you! Nothing worse than showing up to a rental that doesn't stock salt or tp or coffee grinder.
Thanks to the owners and Vacasa
We appreciate your feedback and 5 star review. Guest feedback is very helpful. We've got 2 snow shovels at the home now. Sorry for the inconvenience during you stay. We hope you'll come again!
Andre L.Sep 2014
This house was perfect for our group. Our only concern was that we couldn't connect to the wifi with the password we recieved. Everything else was great!
Thank you for this review. I'm so glad to hear that this house was a perfect fit for your vacation. I apologize that you were not able to connect to the Internet during your stay. We sure wish you had notified us of that while you were in the home so we could have helped with the problem. We are always willing to send out someone to make your stay enjoyable. Albeit, the Internet is working now. We hope to see you again soon.
Tara K.Apr 2014
The house was exactly how it looks in the photos. No unpleasant surprises. It was perfect for our large group. Kitchen was stocked with everything, hot tub was hot, beds were ample. Absolutely a great place to stay in Government Camp. Highly recommended.
Thanks for this great review! We love to hear that there were no unpleasant surprises for guests. It sounds like this home was a great fit for your group's stay in Government Camp. Glad that you found the kitchen well stocked and that you enjoyed the hot tub and beds! Please stay again.
Brian S.Mar 2014
This house is great ! the kitchen has everything you need for cooking and the hot tub was a big hit! Foose ball was too. I stayed for 4 days and had a great time. Worth every penny!
Steve L.Dec 2013
This is our second time at the Mt Hood Chalet and we enjoyed it thoroughly. Plenty of room for a big family, rustic, but with ammenities to make your stay comfortable. Close enough to skiing/snowboarding, and Government Camp is a quaint little town with friendly locals. Definitely recommend and will stay again!
Nick M.Oct 2013
Great cabin in a great location. It can be difficult to find if you arrive at night. Otherwise the place is amazing.
Danielle K.Oct 2013
Loved the house, lots of room for large family, or friends to go and stay.
Richard R.Aug 2013
This facility works wonderfully for our Ski Camp and we will use it in the future if possible.
Jeremy B.Jun 2013
We had 14 grown men staying here, and it fit us perfectly, with room to spare and no one having to share a bed. The place is great for a big group setting. Having 2 refrigerators was super convenient as well. The layout works really well for spreading people out at night. Everyone had a great time and the cabin had much to do with it. Guys were able to hit the hot tub after biking and rafting, we bbq'd and cooked for this big group with no problems, and enjoyed all hanging out together without feeling cramped at all. The cabin was stocked with everything we could have needed: dishes, pots and pans, separate towels for the hottub, etc.
Vacasa was super easy to work with, and the Cabin is located close to skiing, and about 1 hour from Maupin for rafting. Be sure to buy your groceries before you hit town though, as Govt Camp's stores are a little inadequate for buying for a big group. But it was a great trip, and the cabin was a big part of it. Thanks!!
Emmery R.Mar 2013
We had a large group ski weekend for my husband's birthday and this house was absolutely ideal! There were ample towels/sheets/etc. for our large group and enough beds for everyone to sleep soundly. There is a perfectly functioning full-size hot tub also. The location was close enough that we were able to walk to the Ratskeller and have dinner one of the nights we stayed. Absolutely a wonderful location for skiiers/boarders!!
Ashley S.Feb 2013
The Mount Hood Chalet is a rustic large cabin nestled in tightly between neighbors. It was spacious inside and housed 18 people comfortably. The two kitchens make it convenient to cook. Parking can be tricky. The hot tub is great! The large dining table on the second floor is perfect for hosting large groups and playing card games.
Terry H.Jan 2013
We had a problem in the lower room firestove....the airflow adjustment piece fell from the outlet tube into the fire. We were missing a shovel which would have come in handy. Other than that we were quite happy with the home and plan to return next year!!! Please send an email as to when that reservation is available. Thank You so much for a job well done by the whole team!!
Our maintenance department will look into resolving the damper situation. We will also find the homes shovel. It may be in all that beautiful snow surrounding the home.
Desarom T.Jan 2013
Our family stayed for New Year's holiday. The house is in a perfect location at Govy. It was well stocked and maintained. We will be back...
Linn G.Nov 2012
This house is wonderful for big groups. We had 15 of us, with kids of varying ages. Lots of space to move around and easy to be outside and play. It never felt crowded and there are actually enough beds for everyone. That is a first for our group.
Bob H.Apr 2012
Wood and wood stove were very warming after being outside. King size beds are very comfortable. Hot tub is a lot of fun late at night.
