WHO WE ARE
Hi, I'm Jeanne. I have had a home in Government Camp since 1969 and have lived here for over 40 years. I love the mountain air, the pure water, the moderate climate, and the multitude of activities afforded the out-of-doors lover.
The town of Government Camp has a feeling of wilderness yet its proximity to Portland allows access to the amenities of a big city. Close by dining facilities, all with a mountain theme, offer a variety of foods from burgers and pizza to delightful European cuisine. Night life includes North America's largest night ski area and Cosmic Tubing open as late as 11 pm. Several local shops offer ski gear, articles made by local artisans, Mt. Hood souvenirs, and a well equipped grocery market; Govy General Store. Mt. Hood Brewery and other establishments offer local wines, ales and beers. Spending a few hours in the Museum and Cultural Center in Government Camp gives the visitor a great overview of the history of the region.
Winter activities abound with 4 close by ski areas, inner tubing, snowshoeing, cross country skiing, snow mobile tours, etc. Rental shops are available in town and at all ski areas.
Summer activities include Skibowl's Mt. Hood Adventure Park, mountain biking, hiking, mountain lake canoeing, kayaking, swimming and white water rafting on the Deschutes River.
The world famous Timberline Lodge, offering year round skiing, is within 6 miles. Mountain Guide services are available to the fit and hardy mountaineers and hikers. Timberline is also a main stop for those hiking the famous Pacific Crest National Trail.
And of course, our guests are also welcome to simply sit and relax for the day. Watching birds on the outside decks, or sitting by the fire here at the Chalet.
