Overview

About the property

Families ONLY: 3 bedrooms plus queen sofa bed, sleeps 8. Toys, movies, & sleds!

The best base camp in the heart of the of Mount Hood. Our home is the most family-friendly option in Government Camp and probably the cleanest too. Enjoy our home just steps from the clubhouse, pool and spa/hot tubs.

Read the reviews and you'll see that this is one of the nicest, chalets in Collins Lake Resort. Lightly rented, carefully cared for, always. We rent to families only. As a result we get about half the wear and tear of the other homes in the resort

Expanded video library! We just bought a dozen new movies for both kids and parents, bringing the grand total movie library well over 100. With 3 places to watch movies in the Chalet, everyone can find a movie and a place to enjoy them.

We try to be the most kid friendly place on the mountain...while making sure the adults in your group will love it too. Our home is full of fun for families both inside and outside with the heated pool, soaking pool, hot tub and sauna just 50 feet from our front door. This is the place to relax and enjoy the mountain and all it offers no matter what adventure, or simple relaxation you seek.

Email us for a link to our photo album with 50 pictures!

What to do first? Stroll through Government Camp, walk to the pool, hit the slopes, or simply relax in the sauna. Or perhaps just cook up a great dinner in the cozy and fully-stocked kitchen. Play a board game, play some darts....or just enjoy the fireplace and a movie or magazine.

Everything you need is within walking distance. This is our 'Home Away From Home:' you will find spices in the cupboard for cooking up your family meals, an entire bookshelf of kids books, movies to cozy up and watch with hot popcorn, and toys and books for the kids.

Email us for our video link and many many more pictures.. We hope you join the group of families who come back season after season to our home on Mount Hood, making it their home on the mountain as well!

Why Brent HIeggelke chose Government Camp

We love Mount Hood in every season. From the massive snowfall to the beautiful warm summer days, it offers a great base camp for every outdoor activity. And with the resort amenities, we have a bit of luxury at the end of any day.

What makes this townhome unique

Staying at our Chalet offers a very kid-friendly home, chock full of games, toys and sleds. In addition the resort has year round heated pool, 2 hot tubs and a sauna, all just 40 feet from our front door.

Great for families, just like it says

  • 5 of 5

Second year staying here - a new family favorite. Great spaces for family to hang out together or spread out and do their own thing. The sleds and snowshoes are great so we don't have to haul as much. Owners are very responsive and this cabin/condo is super clean and well-appointed.

I highly recommend reading the copy of "Norwegian Wood " if you stay here!

Can't wait to make our reservation for next year!

Perfect 'cabin' for ski trip!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in this newly build 'cabin'. Property is well maintained, well equipped and very comfortable! The home owner was a pleasure to deal with and even offered us an early check in and late check out - even though we couldn't take an advantage of both. Thanks!

Great Place

  • 5 of 5

This is a very nice unit in Collins Lake Resort. Some units are hit and miss, but this one is solid. Well stocked, very clean and comfortable. This is our 2nd time at this place and we will definitely come back again.

Wonderful spot to enjoy a snow storm

  • 5 of 5

Highly recommend this gem in Government Camp. It was perfect for our trip with extended family, which included two family groups: one with two girls, 1 & 5, and another with a 2 year old. They have pretty much everything you need to enjoy a great weekend. The shuttle (or short walk) to Skibowl or Timberline was great and let us leave the cars parked for much of the trip (nice in the feet of snow we had). Having walking distance to Skibowl also allowed the downhill skiers in the group to easily trade off morning an afternoon runs/parenting duty. The pool and hot tub are a must -- recommend bringing warm robes and slippers with waterproof soles for making the dash to and from the clubhouse in comfort.

Our trip included a fantastic multi day snowstorm that dumped feet of fluffy powder, which was just what we were hoping for. If you have littles, I would recommend bringing some baby gates to block off the (2) sets of very steep stairs. Or, this might be a nice amenity for the hosts to consider having on site.
