Charming Mt. Hood cabin - close to chairlifts, boutiques, shops, dining!
Ease into the tranquility of the mountains in this Government Camp vacation rental! With three bedrooms, room for six, and a convenient location, this is your ideal mountain getaway.
This home is close to everything Government Camp has to offer - the ski lifts are just a few minutes' drive from here, and the charming boutiques, bars, and restaurants of Govy are just a few blocks from your front door. Spend your days outdoors then return for a night of relaxation.
With forest-friendly vibes, retro furniture, and exposed wood walls, this home is truly your little cabin in the woods!
The living room is laid-back with Southwest-inspired decorations and a wood-burning stove to warm up next to. Around the corner, the quaint kitchen provides full amenities to prepare a delicious meal for your crew, but you may have to rock-paper-scissors over who does the dishes! There's also a sweet dining table tucked in the corner where you can devour your breakfast or dinner.
There is one bedroom on the main level that has a cozy full-size bed, as well as a full bathroom so everyone can stay clean and warm. Upstairs in the loft, there's a living area with a TV and foosball table, as well as two twin-size futons. There is one queen bed in one upstairs bedroom and in the other, two double beds. Altogether up to six people can stay in this home!
There's also WiFi so you can share all your pics with friends at home, a DVD player, and a gas grill.
This home is super convenient for any skiers or snowboarders in your group - the slopes of Timberline Lodge, Mt. Hood Meadows, and SkiBowl are all within 12 miles! You can spend your days out shredding the powder and easily had back for to soothe sore muscles. This area is fantastic anytime of year thanks to the surrounding mountains, streams, and rivers, so all the hiking, mountain biking, and fishing you could need is easy to access!
Government Camp is cute little town with several bars and restaurants to visit, just a few minutes' walk away. Trillium Lake is about four miles away for fantastic views and camping, and the Columbia River Gorge (with world class windsurfing and kiteboarding) is about 60 miles from here. Plus, if you feel like you want to get a dose of the city life, you can always head into Portland - about 57 miles away!
Any outdoor adventurer will appreciate this awesome Mt. Hood vacation home!

Walk to lifts
We had a lovely two night stay, very comfortable little cabin. Loved being able to walk into the village and snow shoe so close by.
We absolutely loved the stay at Ravens Roost in Government Camp! I can only imagine what it would have been like in February. The interior is cozy and good for a small family, but it was just my wife and I while hiking on Mt. Hood. Parking not much of an issue for my F150 short bed, space for two small cars. Only complaint I can think of was the refrigerator, the seal on the upper left side was separated and constantly ran during our stay and the water did have a strange odor, maybe on a well? Seemed of high iron or something in the water.
Whole stay was absolutely fabulous!! Close to slopes in Timberline, as well as great hiking. Mirror Lake loop was beautiful!
Only improvement: RECYCLING! Of all places, Oregon should have recycling everywhere! Felt criminal putting milk cartons, cardboard, certain plastics into the trash☹️
Very convenient to town. We were able to walk to restaurants and groceries. Even went snowshoeing right out the door. House was well stocked with all you need for the kitchen, bath, and extra blankets.
There was one problem we had, and that was there was a mouse or a couple of mice in the home. We found out because we were packing our packaged food to take home and found that a couple packages had holes chewed through the packages of oat meal and potato chips. So just so you know there is a minor rodent issue in this home. Aside from that all went well. This is our second time in this rental.
Great location, quite, and great for the kids. Forgot to bring wood for the wood stove, but the government camp store sells it. Might be nice to not that in the description of place.
Very homely, well equipped, extremely comfortable. We had a perfect weekend
Small but space smartly utilized, awesome knotty pine and exposed wood throughout. Primitive and puny, the front door is a struggle to open, rodents scamper between rafters and you have to cock your head to use the toilet. This place couldn't have been better for an intimate family reunion. Thanks for keeping it real.
The place was just the right size for the number of people we had. I've seen bad reviews about the water....but the first thing my son told me when he was there was "This is the best water I think I've ever drank". We had a few neighbors, which I never saw or heard. You can feel as isolated as you want or walk down hill in 5 mins and meet hordes of people. This was money well spent.
At the very least a vacation rental should have drinkable water. The water smelled and tasted strongly of iron. We had to purchase all of our cooking and drinking water. The carpet in the bathroom needs to go. The layout of the cabin is another issue. The bathroom and kitchen are very small and located next to each other. These are the busiest rooms in any house which made for constant traffic jams. There did appear to be an attempt to make this a kid friendly property. Lots of toys and stuffed animals. The staircase however is treacherous for your littles. Not having drinkable water really killed this experience for us. I normally wouldn't leave such a negative review but not having drinkable water is deal breaker. I just don't know if that problem is specific to this property or if is representative of the whole community.
We were very concerned by this review as the drinking water in this area is fantastic. We did some research and discovered some work had been done in this area around the time of this reservation that we were not informed of that most likely affected the water. We apologize this happened. We have alerted the owner to the suggestion to remove the bathroom carpet. Thank you!
This place is in a small city of Goverment camp. If you are going to ski or snow playing , it is the perfect location. If you are just going to enjoy the scene of Columbia River Gorge, like us, it is a little bit too far although the scenic driving is fun. The house is very clean and cozy. It is big enough for five of us except the bathroom. The kitchen has everything you need for cooking. Some restaurantsay are near by also. There is an information center and a kind of history museum just cross the street. Anyway, we like this place and enjoyed the staying.
This property suited our family of four just fine. It's cute, clean, and convenient to any type of outdoor activity you would want to do.
The cabin is just a short walk from the shops and restaurants in Government Camp and very close to the Summit and Skibowl ski resorts. Some spaces are a little tight, and it may feel cramped in some places if you are a broad or tall person. Overall, we found the place clean and cozy for our family of four.
Great location. Easy access to trails and restaurants. The one bathroom is very small, and the ceilings throughout are pretty low. Perfect for a small group or a family with kids. Might be a tight squeeze for somebody very tall.
This cabin is very conveniently located: walking distance to all the top spots in Govy. We have two little boys who really enjoyed the toys and books. Yes, the bathroom and kitchen are a bit tight. But the charm more than makes up for any inconvenience!
This house is very small (with only one bathroom, and no dishwasher), but the location is great! If you plan to be gone most of the day skiing or tubing, it worked out fine. We ordered pizza "to go" and ate it at the house, and otherwise, did not do much cooking. It was warm and cozy, and provided us a safe place to sleep at night, which was less expensive (and more fun) than 3 hotel rooms.
Perfect for ski cabin - you are in Government camp to ski and adventure all day long. You only need a simple, cozy and clean place to unwind and rest up - this is it. Great value and great location.
Stayed here w/ my husband and 4 kids (ages 6-20) and this cabin was perfect! Great space upstairs for kids w/ lots of games and easy sleeping arrangements. Cabin is so close to walk to all restaurants and shops in government camp. The feeling of the home is very cozy and like having your own little lodge up at the mountain- will definitely look to stay here again next time we go up!
Loved the location! Very cozy and comfortable! We were very happy- would have loved one more bathroom, but for the price we were very happy.
This is a great little cabin, the rooms are a little small but its great for a family with two or three kids, they loved the upper area. A bit of advise for the next tenant. When you arrive and look for the lock box to get the key, you need to look over your left shoulder as you face the door, the box is located under the eve of the roof above your left shoulder, if you see the lock box on the right side of the door opening that isn't the box containing the key! Also don't use the space heaters upstairs, it will pop the circuit breaker, the lights go out then you need to find the breaker panel which is located in the rear storage area accessed by the back door in the kitchen! Aside from that we enjoyed our stay there. Also purchase some dry seasoned firewood from the Govy store, the firewood at the cabin isn't seasoned and won't burn!
Amazing home -location- Fun- Close to Everything
We rented a cabin that was not pleasant. When we opened the door and walked through the cabin it was VERY musty smelling, old(rustic?) , and not a particularly desirable location (few feet from the main highway). We would have shrugged our shoulders and lived with it. However, when we turned on the furnace it blew cold air and would not shut off. Soon, the indoor temp went from 56 degrees to 48 degrees.
We called VACASA and they relocated us to another rental nearby which was clean, cozy, better location, and warm. VACASA staff was very attentive to our dilemma and did everything possible to make sure our brief vacation was enjoyable.
We are very glad to hear that the Vacasa staff was able to help you make your vacation more enjoyable. We have sent a local property manager out to the cabin for repairs to the furnace and that will be looking into what may be causing a musty smell. We hope to have you back with Vacasa for your next Skiing trip!
I was hugely disappointed to arrive and find only one bedroom with a loft. There are NO DOORS to the upstairs or on the "bedrooms" upstairs. If you turn on a light in one bedroom it shines right into the other, and also you can see directly from one bed to the other across the way. This is NOT a good place to stay with toddlers or babies!!
Considering that a previous review said there were light bulbs out, you think the company would remedy that problem, however not the case. There is very little light in the cabin anyway, and two lamps were not working. Maybe pack your own light bulbs ??
Location is great! Easy walk to town and drive to Timberline.
No washer, but nice to have access to a clothes drier in case your snow stuff gets wet.
They have lots of kid books and some toys which was a nice surprise.
I have stayed in 6 Vacasa rentals and this is the only one that does not fit the description.
Its a super cozy cabin on a perfect location. For six it might be a bit small though.
Great little cabin, very close to all of the restaurants and shops in Government Camp. The cabin itself is a bit small and fairly dark at night (lack of lights in the house), but I would highly recommend it.
Overall, we had a great stay at this very cute and clean cabin right in the heart of Government Camp. It is very cozily and tastefully decorated with all the creature comforts of home...except for maybe a spacious enough bathroom to accommodate a group of 8 people. Since we are hearty people used to backpacking, we didn't mind having to forego showering but once during our 3 night stay...and making it a quick shower at that, to save hot water for someone else. This, and the fact that the kitchen is so narrow that you have to lean against the sink while washing dishes by hand in order to let your 9 yr. old son pass you on his way to the bathroom, I believe, justify the bargain price for this location. The Foosball table was a huge hit with the kids, as were the cozy futons upstairs to lounge upon while watching movies. However, the lighting in the house could be improved. There was no light directly over the dining table, so playing board games at night was difficult. Most wall fixtures had to be turned on by twisting switches behind the light itself...pretty awkward. One of 3 floor lamps downstairs was out, with no new lightbulbs to be found, and the only functioning light upstairs on the ceiling went out halfway through our stay. We carried a floor lamp upstairs to make do. Finally, the house was very difficult to find at 7pm in the dark among the 3 ft. high snowdrifts and limited lighting. There was no house number visible from the lit porch and a total of 3 different lockboxes on the door with no labeling made our entry difficult and time consuming. All in all, though, a cozy stay. Make sure you really like the people you go with if you share it with friends or family, or it may be too small for comfort.
The rooms were a little small (low ceiling) but enjoyed our stay anyways. Location was great. Cabin is up on a small hill so on days with snow/ice you will need traction tires/chains to get up/down the hill. The staff was very helpful.
A very cozy, comfortable and clean place for our family of 5 to spend the weekend. The Ravens Roost had a great log cabin feel, but good amenities and right in Government Camp. Great location, and great way to get to our favorite mountain and lake spots.
