Everything about the cabin was excellent, nice and rustic with lots of character. Surrounding neighbors super cool.

What an eclectic visit. This is a truly unique place to stay in the beauty of Mt Hood. Everything worked perfectly and we had BLAST!
James K. Jan 2020
Great place. Great location. Felt like I was in a European cottage. Kids liked the unique layout and the fireplace
Georgina A. Jan 2020
We loved it!
Dave C. Jan 2020
There is arguably no better place in Government Camp to stay than the Wilcox Cabin. Especially for a family of 4 or 5 with kids in elementary school/middle school.

It's right in the middle of all the action at GC. After a day of skiing, we couldn't wait to get back to our awesome, cozy cabin. Book it!

Sehr viele Handarbeit am Haus

Nice place.

the home is in a great location and was very comfortable...

We had a great stay in this tidy, interesting and cozy cabin. Basic amenities were plenty. Great location. Comfortable beds. I would definitely recommend it. It could use a sign on the coffee maker that alerts people that it does not shut off automatically. Luckily we checked it but many might not.

Small, but large enough for our party to have privacy, gathering places and food preparations. Well equipped with pots and pans etc. Location is best part. Walk to town, minutes to Mt. Hood Meadows. Nice gas stove in living room that has all kinds of places to hang up those wet spring ski clothes. All dried overnight.

The location is perfect. We enjoyed walking to restaurants in Government Camp. Trillium and Timberline were only a short drive. The cabin was a cozy spot to warm up after skiing.

This cabin was perfect for our group of 4 adults and two 20 month olds. It’s in a perfect location just off the main Govy drag and had all the amenities we needed. The owner does a great job of describing the property so there were no unpleasant surprises. We loved the warm gas fireplace and our kiddos loved watching sledders zoom down the street from the window. Absolutely love the dining room walls, fun knick-knacks and other decorations. Yeah the stairs are narrow and steep but you know that by now. About the only suggestions is a more comfy mattress for the double/full bedroom, was a little cratered. But all in all a fab place and fun stay!
Mary Helen L. Dec 2018
Very cozy. In a good location as it is only a short walk to town.
Pratik M. Dec 2018
Best location, right in government camp approx .25 miles from ski area. Nice cozy cabin as well
Sorin P. Aug 2018
We spent 3 nights there. Lovely rustic cabin in the heart of Government Camp. Excellent if you want to go ski Palmer in the summer, in the morning, then drive about an hour to Hood River in the afternoon. A word of caution however for the very old or the very young: all the bedrooms are upstairs and the stairs are very, very steep. We loved it there! 😊😊
Scott B. Jan 2018
Loved our stay. The house is definitely an older ski chalet, but the charm and funkiness is exactly what we were expecting. Perfect for our christmas together with my inlaws and our daughter.
Julie A. Dec 2017
It’s rustic but location is key! We’d stay here again.
Thomas W. Dec 2017
This is a very cute little cabin which would be adequate for up to six people. The only minor issue is that the stairs to the upper bedroom area is narrow and a little steep so this could be an issue for older people aside from that my family throughly enjoyed our stay there.
Jeff M. Oct 2017
Great low frills cabin in Gov'y for four (two adults, two kids). We would definitely stay here again.
Didier D. Aug 2017
check if bathroom downstairs is for you. Close proximity to the village.
Michael D R. Aug 2017
Very easy to find, walk to almost everything. I am sure if you enjoy winter activities it will be even more fun. Price was reasonable, older person's or anyone with a disability may have some trouble, stairs are steep entering house, and all bedrooms are up a very narrow and steep staircase, use caution there also if little children are present.
Lindsay C. May 2017
This darling cabin gets an A+ in the charm department. The furnishings and decor are very "ski-cabin" and do so much to give this cabin a charming feel. Some of the blankets and pillows are a bit shabby and could use replacing. If the hot tub was functional, this place would've gotten a home-run! The hot tub was not included in the actual description, but was mentioned in the reviews. We were not necessarily expecting a hot tub, but were hopeful. It would've been so nice to unwind with a soak after a day teaching our little boys to ski!
Christina C. Mar 2017
Quaint little cabin located super close to all the happenings in government camp. A short jaunt to the general store and night life along with just a 3 mile hIke to timberline.
Sharif M. Jan 2017
Stayed at the Wilcox cabin and had the most amazing time. It's great for 4 to 5 people, is in a great location to the ski resort's, and the HOT TUB!!! Couldn't have asked for a better ski trip/ cabin stay. Thank you for your hospitality, we will likely be back next year
Sidney H. Jan 2017
Wonderful location with entertaining sled hill/street right out front. House needs some serious help in the lighting, bed, shower and cooking areas. We stayed over New Years and it's certainly not worth $500 a night. Owners could take two nights of that rent and make this place awesome, and they really need to do just that for us to come back to stay. I hope they let us know if they do a little work on it, we would return, just not as it is right now.
Lori O. Nov 2016
Overall quaint cabin. Need some TLC and maintenance. Great location for walking to general store, restaurants and shops. Great place to stay for a ski vacation. Porch Jacuzzi was lovely.
Bryce W. Feb 2016
had a wonderful time in Govy at this house!
Thank you so much for opening it up to us. Its old time ski cabin charm is so fun! I can tell its being updated over time. Doing a great job!
Thank you!
Keli G. Dec 2015
We had a fantastic trip with our 3 teenagers! The cabin was perfect and we had a fun day of skiing at SkiBowl. Government Camp was a zoo when we arrived but so fun!
Xenia K. May 2015
This little cabin is so adorable and wonderful!!! Right in the heart of govt camp, perfect location! We had a maintenance issue and a repairman came within 10 minutes of calling to fix it, amazing service. Hot tub is grrat, beds are super comfy, kitchen is well stocked! We highly recommend vacasa and the Wilcox haus!!
Tom G. Jan 2015
Cozy, nice kitchen and bedrooms. Will easily sleep 6, with a 7th on the couch downstairs. Parking out front for 2 vehicles. Just a few steps to the Govt Camp shopping strip.
Rawley W. Dec 2014
The cabin was really cozy and the beds were really comfortable
Susie W. Dec 2014
Loved everything about the whole experience. Can't wait to stay again
Ben S. Sep 2014
Bad lighting, broken appliances, mattresses in two rooms were bad.
Manager response:
We appreciate you taking the time to leave your review with us. Your feedback is important, and we will be sure to continue working on making this home as comfortable as possible for our guests. Thank you!
Joanne S. Aug 2014
Handy location for walking into Government Camp. Cabin was clean and as pictured. Overall, it could stand a bit of updating and maybe foam toppers on bed, but for a true cabin experience it will take you back to grandma's country house! We enjoyed it and would go again.
Lisa M. Nov 2013
Our stay at the Wilcox cabin was very cozy and relaxing. It was fully furnished with plenty of appliances/tools to prepare meals in the kitchen. Beds were comfortable, and the living space perfect for games around the fire. Conveniently located, close to the local store and restaurants. The hot tub Is small but it works! Definitely hope we get to come stay again!
Karl G A. Jan 2013
Neat classic old ski cabin. Great wallpaper in the kitchen with lots of plates, pots and other kitchen gear. Also loads of space in Living Room, and a nice gas stove.
Jake C. Dec 2012
we had a blast and the wilcox cabin is perfect! the coffee maker leaked everytime it was used. Would be nice to have a larger trash receptacle and one for recycling. Thanks for the great time!
