We loved the location, the cleanliness, the comfort!
I required WiFi internet to finish some work during our 2 night stay. The entire time, it was broken. Many other reviewers said the same thing, but I was hoping vacasa would have fixed it by now, or removed “WiFi” from the list of offered amenities; neither happened.
If you need WiFi do not rent this unit!
The dryer looks new, but the outlet air hose easily gets kinked so none of our clothes got dry until we pulled it 2 feet away from the wall (only discovered the fix on our last day there).
Finally, the door on the first floor badly let’s cold air from outside leak in from the outside so the bottom floor is always freezing. Luckily the 2nd & 3rd floor is where the living room and bedrooms are, so they stayed warm.
Other than those problems, the unit was actually really nicely furnished and clean, and in pretty good condition.
We apologize for the inconveniences you experienced during your time here. The WiFi is under the management of the HOA at Collins Lake, and they are in the process of upgrading the connection. We will reseal the entry door on the ground floor to help alleviate the draft, and the dryer is operating properly. We hope to see you again! Thank you for choosing Vacasa!
Great condo in CLR. I've stayed in many and this one has all the amenities and lacks nothing. Good unit, good owners, well equipped. It's on the quiet end of CLR. No issues.
This is a well appointed unit in Collins Lake and has everything you will need for a comfortable stay, the kitchen is well stocked with cook ware and utensils. We booked this unit because the previous reviews posted by others said the beds were really comfortable. The beds are ok, they are not the typical cheap, hard beds you typically fine in rental units, but they are not “really comfortable “ and high end beds. Also the unit didn’t have internet, we were ok because we have stayed in Collins Lake before and our computers recognized the internet system there and hooked onto it automatically. We would have loved to give this unit 5 stars and the only thing that stopped us is the beds, the rest of the unit is very nice with nice furniture etc. Stewart & Andrea owners of “Hidden Hawaiian Gem” property in Maui.
Accommodations were roomy and comfortable.
We had a great time at the Collins Lake condo. It was well supplied with just about everything we needed... even shampoo and soap. It was clean and comfortable. However, I was disappointed that one of the bedrooms (the one with bunk beds) had no door on it. Also the WiFi was not working. I did notify Vacasa ... so hopefully that will e fixed for the next guests.
Thank you for your feedback, Cynthia. We will bring this to the attention of the local staff. We hope to host you again soon.
This is our third year staying at Collins Lake Resort and our second year in this specific condo. We love this condo. It's comfortable and in a great location looking out into the trees giving you some privacy off the back deck. The kitchen was well stocked, beds are comfortable, and there is enough space for everyone to enjoy (we have two teenage boys). We love the short hike around the "lake" for a quick morning or afternoon walk and we always have so much fun at the pool, it's clean and perfect. The alpine slides at Mt. Hood Adventure Park and hiking around Timberline Lodge are a must!
Great place very cleaned and as described. I do wish it had HD TV, but that is not why we were there at least that what my wife tells me. I would recommend this lodging to friends and family.
We really enjoyed our stay in this unit. The townhouse was clean, well supplied, has fun mountain decor, and in a great location to nearby activities. The owners have done a good job posting helpful info around the unit (check-out list, dishwasher quirk, pool towels location, labeling light switches, etc). Look forward to booking again.
The home was very nice. Had all the amenities, Would go back again !
Condo worked out great. Located 15 minutes from Mt Hood. Restaurants in walking distance. Xlarge garage.
The community hot tub is terrific after a day of skiing. Easy access to Mt Hood Meadows or Timberline. Comfortable accommodations.
The Warren Miller movies!
The path around the lake was beautiful
We loved the location and the space to accommodate our family on vacation at government Camp!!
Our family has always wanted to spend 2 days skiing at Meadows and we got our wish this year by staying at this very cozy and comfortable condo. We look forward to booking again for next year.
Great location. The condo had everything we were looking for in the Mt. Hood area; fireplace, cute decor, perfect square footage, etc.!!! Would highly recommend this condo!!!!
The condo was nicely furnished and has a fully stocked kitchen. The view of trees and the fireplace in the living room were super relaxing.
The complex has a heated outdoor pool and hot tub, and a sauna, all of which were delightful. There was a glitch in that the key for the clubhouse was missing, but the Vacasa staff soon called and took care of us. Only wishes would be for a softer mattress and better pillows. Otherwise, a wonderful stay and would definitely return!
Roomy, modern condo with all the amenities. We walked to the local restaurants which was so convenient. It was quiet at night and restful. You do need to be able to climb stairs like mos townhouses.
I was satisfied with this facility. It needs new carpet and a fresh coat of paint, but it did the job. We did go during the heat wave so I was really wishing for some AC since there isn’t any, but it was tolerable. Pans were old and cheap but they did the job. Nothing to brag about but there was nothing bad about it really. Good stay overall!
Vacasa agent was very good about getting extra fans and accommodating us on an early check in. Unit is clean and comfortable but the WiFi is pretty useless.
Parking - Lots of free parking just outside the house.
Rooms - Well maintained, clean and with all facilities - kitchen, grill, washer/dryer, utensils, lots of towels and comfortable beds
Pool, hot tub and sauna - Very well maintained and walking distance
Lockbox - it's a bit confusing to locate the clubhousekeys and never succeeded in making the garage door open via outside keys. Something to be fixed by Vacasa.
Overall, I will reserve this place again if I am around this area.
My son loved ski camp and this was a great place to stay!
If you are a skier and want a perfect and close place to the resorts and/or G Camp...stay at this property! Very clean, very cozy, and user friendly. The pool is less than 100 yards away and was well used. The residence was stocked with all we needed.. no issues at all. We will for sure be back and have already raved about this unit. Fun, Fun, Fun!
This home was very clean with plenty of amenities inside as well as on the property. There was ample room for two adults and two kids to spread out in or hang out on the large couch for a movie. The kitchen was well stocked with clean items and the appliances worked well. Our kids were excited for cable but there were limited channels and very blurry..minor issue but could be a problem for some. The heated garage was very convenient as it was pretty chilly during our stay. We would love to visit again next year and have recommended this condo to family.
Was disappointed over holiday visit there were no holiday decorations?
Negatives: Bold letters should describe that the 3 area for sleeping is not a bedroom.No window and no door...stuffy. Condo is quite Noisy. 2 stair cases with STEP steps. Master toliet did not work. Garage door did not open from outside.
Positives: Furnishings overall are very nice, very "rental like". TV in each bedroom a nice touch, (but very basic programing) Clean but needs a little TLC. Roomy. Pretty view off back deck. Heated garage a nice touch. Vacass very helpful with problems.
Great condo in Collins Lake Resort. Everything as expected as they're all the same...
i love its cleanness, quiet surroundings.
i will definitely stay there again.
Great location with excellent walking access to Government camp
Pool and Hot tub were fabulous
Great spot for mini reunion or private couple retreat
we loved staying at this condo and playing around the surrounding area
We were there for a summer father son trip - 2 adults, 2 kids. Nice location with walking distance to town and both adventure park locations. Having a pool and hot tub was great after hours of mountain biking. We found out at the end of our time on the chair lifts/East that you can take a $2 bus up to Timberline Lodge and ride 6 miles of singletrack downhill! Next time. Town was a little grungey as expected; no fine dining options (although Timberline Lodge Sunday brunch was impressive) but perfect bar/"apres ski" food for an active vacation. Overall epic trip with very comfortable condo amenities, good rental support, and amazing weather for our time there. We will plan an annual trip (from Seattle). If we lived in Portland, we'd be there all the time!
This place is great, the hot tub and pool, right in Government Camp, trails everywhere and lakes with amazing views and great fishing... it's like soup, it's like malt-o-,meal, it's good for ya, it's like, nothing bad let me tell you that much.
I highly suggest bringing your own bed pillows.
First time to my hood, lived in Oregon all my life. Drive in with 5 Other fiends from Beaverton or. Stayed dec 3-5. Condo was beautiful, clean, spacious, had all cocking essentials. Pretty window views from bedrooms. Beds were pretty stiff, and pillows not to full either. Wifi was "not available " although listed that it was in the unit. Tried troubleshooting but no luck, called front desk, they sent the maintenance worker to reset modem. Still nothing, all guests had no option for wifi on devices. :( on all I would stay again. Maybe try the grand lodge next time :)
Great unit at Collins Lake. Easy to find and very cozy spot. This unit had trees behind it and the balcony seems really private compared to others. It was great drinking coffee in the morning and watching the snow fall in the trees. There are two sets of stairs which we thought was going to be a problem with a toddler and one year old but there were baby gates in the closets. All bedrooms are on the third floor- two rooms with queen beds have doors, the room with bunk beds for the kids has no door. All three rooms have TV.
Enjoyed staying in the area and was happy with this accommodation.
Location is wonderful, place was neat and clean, all the amenities were provided, Kitchen was fully stocked. Living room has big LCD TV and my Only recommendation is to provide HD channels as SD picture looked bad on that big TV. Overall we both had pleasant stay.
Our stay was very pleasant. The condo was very convenient for adults who want to attend the HCSC. We had plenty of room to spread our gear around and not trip over it like the local hotels/motels for pretty close to the same price. The hot tub/pool area is a nice treat after a day on the mountain and was very clean. The grill is a nice amenity and all the major cooking tools are stocked in the kitchen. Internet worked great. Smart TV worked great. The "third bedroom" which has bunk beds does not have a window so it can get overheated in summer. Our guest slept on the couch downstairs instead and was very comfortable.
this was a totally cool spot to stay, nice and close to town.
We stayed here for our ski trip. The location allowed easy access to all the different resorts and close enough making drives to them quick.
The property was well maintained and offered a quaint and coy retreat especially after a long day out on the slopes.
I would have been Guly recommend renting this place for anyone looking for a comfort and a home feel.
There were only six towels in the condo so if you want to use the pool and/or hot tub and take a shower be prepared to wash towels. Towels for the pool would be nice especially when you have six people staying I. The condo. We also did not have shampoo, conditioner, or soap (not even in the bathrooms) in the condo. Other than these two issues the condo was great and we would stay here again. But be prepared with your own toiletries even though they tell you not to bring them.
We wanted to get away and have a 100% chance of a white Christmas... and man did we. We stayed at Collins lake resort right in government camp. Great condo, space for the whole family and cozy! The family had a blast and we're definitely coming back!
We were very pleased with the location of the unit and the whole process from beginning to the end ! It's was one of the best vacations we've had lately! Lots snow and lots things to do in the area.
This will go in the books as the best vacation we have had. We came up with my family (including our 1 year old son) and the scenery was picturesque. We visited for thanksgiving and walking up the main road felt like a fairytale with the snow and the top of the mountain in sight. We loved the cosmic tubing and the trails on the resort were gorgeous. We will definitely be staying here again!
My husband and I had a great visit here with my parents and our two kids. Our littlest is barely 16 months, so we brought our own baby gates to keep him from falling down the stairs. Our older son loved the bunk beds, although there is no door on that room as it is not really a bedroom despite being used for that purpose (no door, no closet, no window). Kitchen was well equipped with utensils and pans, etc. The condo is lovely and feels fairly private, especially considering that it is not an end unit. We never heard the neighbors at all.
Would have been great if there had been snow, but that's obviously not the fault of the rental itself. We enjoyed our visit and would definitely consider staying there again.
If you show up and it it a heat wave, this unit has no A/C so prepare for a very hot night. If the weather is normal, you will be fine. The lock box for the key to the unit is situated on the frame of the garage. Instructions were a bit confusing about where the key was located.
Thank you for your review! We're sorry you were disappointed by the lack of AC. All of our listings do display amenities. We're always happy to help you find a home that will match your needs. We really love this beautiful 3 floor condo and are sorry to hear that it was a bit too hot for you. Overall we hope you had a great visit!
Had a great stay. Clean unit with a little dated carpet. The one window was priceless. I recommend this unit and will try to rent again.
Vacasa was very accommodating promptly returned calls
Everything was good, except it takes some time in the morning of departure to strip sheets, run towels in washer, and take out trash and recycling. Overall, we had a nice time.
Thanks for your fantastic review and helping our housekeepers by getting a load of laundry started. We appreciate your help! We also really appreciate your business and hope to welcome you back to this beautiful home.
Visited for 4 days w/4 adults and 2 kids, loved this condo. It had everything we needed. We loved the comfortable couch in the living room and the enormous TV was a treat. We cooked all our meals in the well stocked kitchen. We also liked the grill on the deck overlooking the trees and a small stream. You can hear Hwy 26 through the trees but you can't really see it and it didn't bother us at all. The services at Collins Lake are great - everyone loved the therapy pool in the trees. We went there every day for a soak after skiing at Timberline. The beds were very comfortable and the linens excellent (though the upper bunk in the space off the hall felt a bit unstable, even for a small person). We highly recommend this condo and would happily book here again.
This chalet is nicely furnished, equipped in the kitchen and spices a plenty. Wonderful relaxing visit.
We were here from Florida visiting family in Oregon and decided to spend a couple of days on the mountain. The location of the condo was close to everything we wanted to do. This unit had a very nice nature view from the patio. It snowed the day we left, and the parking lot was being cleared early in the day to make an easy exit. The large hot tub in the woods was great. We were not expecting the amount of stairs in the unit, but the modern furnishing, soft beds and large kitchen made up for it. Had some trouble getting the remote controls to work, but otherwise, everything else was perfect. Would definitely stay here again.
The condo was very clean and had all the necessary items, we would stay here again!
We loved staying in this home. It was kept very nice and we had plenty of space and felt very comfortable. I will stay here again. The home is beautiful and the kitchen was awesome! We spent a majority of our time cooking and eating and watching TV since the slopes weren't open. The only thing I'd recommend is bringing a pillow top for the bed as it was a little hard. Other than that, the home was perfect for what we wanted. Thank you!
I am pleased to hear that you had such a wonderful time during your stay with us. Thanks again for sharing your great review and we would love another chance to impress you soon.
I spent a lot of time looking over condos in the Government Camp area, and this was my favorite (for amenities and price). Then once we got there, it was even better than the pictures and description shared. My girlfriends and family LOVED this place! We plan on coming back in the future if it is still available!
Nicely appointed unit in convenient location. The space was perfect for our six person group. Really enjoyed the complex with the pool and jaccuzzi as well. Nice to have a grill on the deck and the fireplace kept the place toasty. Sometimes too hot but better than being cold I guess.... Overall the unit was clean and well stocked and the staff at Vacasa really were friendly and helpful! The lift ticket discount was super awesome too! Thank you for a wonderful stay!
We're so glad that you enjoyed your stay and hope to see you again soon!
We loved it. Very clean and roomy. The only thing we could say negative, was we didn't realize that there were two thermostats controlling the house and it was very hot upstairs and hard to sleep. Once we figured that out, everything was fantastic. We will for sure go back. It is very conveniently located.
We loved the stay, the place,and the customer service we received here. Would definitely recommend to others.
This is a beautiful condo. Modern, comfy and immaculate. We stayed here while visiting the Mt. Hood area. Its location was perfect for exploring the surrounding sites and hikes we were interested in. The only issue (a minor issue) was that you can hear the highway and we weren't able to sleep with the windows open.
This apartment complex is in a great location to take advantage of Mt Hood and the surrounding areas. The apartment itself is very well appointed, was very clean and well set up for a family holiday. The pool and hot tub in the complex were great for the family and we enjoyed using the BBQ on the back deck.
Made the entire trip an excellent experience. Excellent place and very well kept. Will be definitely coming back again!
We loved that there was a TV/DVD in every room....the kids got to enjoy movies while the adults were downstairs. The property was clean and the kitchen was fully sticked, which was great for us since we like to cook. We enjoyed this location very much and will hopefully get the same property next year. The management was very helpful, laidback and accomodating. The cleaning ladies were very sweet! Thank you!
This is a wonderful condo. I would have rated it all five stars if the fireplace was working.
Please improve on master bedroom mattress. Very uncomfortable when two are inthe bed. Otherwise this unit is perfect! Looking forward to another visit.
We appreciate the feedback and have replaced the mattress in the master bedroom. Thank you!
