Comfortable, cabin-style condo, near skiing & attractions - dogs welcome!

With a private forested balcony, a wood-burning fireplace, and easy access to the surrounding ski slopes, this cozy Government Camp vacation rental will bring the atmosphere of a mountain cabin to your next Mt. Hood getaway. It's even dog-friendly for your furry friends!

Conveniently located in the historic town of Government Camp, this spacious three-level condo is only half a mile from Mt. Hood Skibowl East, one mile from Skibowl West, and six miles from the slopes of Timberline Lodge and Ski Area.

Whether you're helping the kids gain their footing or organizing an adventure for experienced skiers, the Edelweiss Retreat offers a generous floor plan, rustic touches, and plenty of entertainment for adults and children alike.

The main living space is warm and inviting after long days on the slopes, with plush sofas, exposed beam ceilings, and a stone fireplace. Curl up with a good book, organize a board game tournament, or screen your favorite film using the flatscreen TV, DVD player, and cable.

The open layout of the full kitchen and dining area create a space in which large groups can easily mingle, while the dishwasher eliminates lengthy clean-ups. With custom wood cabinetry and all major appliances, preparing meals for a hungry crowd will be easy here!

And there's no need to over-pack for this Mt. Hood getaway! There's a private washer and dryer for wet winter clothes, as well as wireless Internet to keep guests connected and engaged.

Groups of all sizes will feel at home at Edelweiss Retreat, which can accommodate as many as 12 guests. The main floor features one bedroom with a double bed and one full bathroom; on the second floor, there is a master bedroom with a queen bed and a balcony, a bedroom with two sets of twin-over-queen bunkbeds, and a second full bathroom.

Looking for a cozy sleeping spot perfect for kids? Ascend the ladders to the third floor to two loft's that each contains one twin bed. If you do choose to bring your dogs, there is just an additional fee.

A gateway to all things outdoors, Government Camp is beloved for its quaint and charming downtown, its proximity to ski slopes, and its gorgeous scenery in both winter and summer. A total of 65 ski runs for all skill levels are located just across Highway 26 at Mt. Hood Skibowl, while Timberline Lodge is famous for its 3,690 vertical feet and a gorgeous Depression Era lodge.

But try not to neglect the warm summer months, when you'll find one of the most spectacular views of Mt. Hood in the reflective waters of Trillium Lake less than four miles south. Plan a hike around picturesque Mirror Lake, then a lunch at Glacier Haus Bistro for pork belly pizza and a German brew.

No matter the season, this Mt. Hood vacation rental will treat your family and friends to an outdoor experience they'll never forget!

There is a ton of room in this amazing cozy apartment. Its nice and warm, and everything functions great. The carpet is a little run down, but that is because of the pet policy and our friend's dog didn't seem to mind. It would be great if the kitchen area has a light over the stove cos it was dark in that area. Overall, a good stay. Thank you for hosting us!

Tons of beds! Lots of room. Loved it. The one thing that would be nice is an outdoor green space for yard games and grilling.

We were a group of 9.
The Edelweiss Retreat Center was good for us.
In the night time and early morning the H-26 was a bit noisy
but other services compensated well.

If you wanna visit Mt. Hood,
you wanna stay at the Government Camp.
You got to drive around and see many lakes and places.

If you are a large group like 8 to 10,
This place is good choice for you.

This unit is fine for a big group that wants to ski all day and needs a bunch of places to sleep. More beds than comfortable places to sit or eat at (Ie beds for 10-12, but table accommodates 4, and the LR has seating for 5-6 - not well laid out). Everything inside was 'ok' - not real nice, not real new, but not real awful either. Kids liked the bunk room, and adjoined loft bed. Adults were happy the kids were happy, but this place looks as if it has not had money spent on the interior in a long, long time. Road noise from hwy 26 was constant if bedroom window was open, not a bit deal but this does back up to 26. Bit of a hassle finding the unit (more our problem than Vacasa's). Parking lot well maintained/plowed - made it easy to get in/out. Dog friendly. all in all an OK place, but not great.

Stayed with my son and his friends from college - 9 people total. Good overall value go sleeping arrangements. Kitchen is poorly equipped for large crowd cooking (bring own cookware) and table seating for eating is limited to 4.

Location is convenient to Gov't camp restaurants and to ski resorts.

Get a room closed off to the rest of the house if you have anybody listening to music downstairs the noise treavels very far.

This is a perfect spot for a ski weekend for a family or two. Everything you need for an enjoyable trip. Not fancy, totally utilitarian, which is perfect for skiing.

Edelweiss

Pros
Inexpensive
In town- walk to restaurants & more
Convenient location
Ample parking
Lots of beds
Well stocked with almost all you could need
Pet friendly
Clean enough I suppose

Cons
Needs some remodeling
Sink in downstairs bedroom looks like it was around for the panhandling era & Closet door broken
Tiles in kitchen disgustingly dirty, Place desperately needs a deep cleaning
Keys took 30 minutes to figure out (good luck-way ghetto)
Only roku (Netflix) works on tv - no instructions
Main living area is very small
Dining area seats only 4
Outside space is non-existent/unusable
Butts up against main highway (may not bother some people)
No barbecue area could be found

Summary

This is an ideal place for a budget conscious; family with lots of kids in tow, 2 small families, extended families or a big group of 20 somethings as long as your expectations aren't super high.

I like Edelweiss property and location, however what I didn't know is that the condos are different from each other. We stayed in condo #2 and were very disappointed. The place sleeps 12 but is so small that it would be difficult to share with 12 people. The master bedroom is attached to the kitchen and living room and you step into this room from the front door (they actually changed the front entrance to side entrance). The layout of the place is just odd in comparison with #5 we rented a couple of years ago which is also for 12 people but much more spacey and much more attractive. Also going from parking lot to the apartment was icey but management didn't think about doing anything about it. Two women in my group fell and one hit her head pretty badly. I would rent at Edelweiss again as I like the location but I will pay more attention to which condo I will rent.
Manager response:
Thank you for your review. We are sorry to see that this condo did not suit your needs well and that some of your party slipped on the ice. We will work with the complex management to see about taking care of icy conditions. We hope you found the home cozy and welcoming!

This unit may sleep a lot of people, however the quarters are tight. The large room upstairs was a great hangout place for the teenagers--the kids loved the lofts... :)
