You won’t see anything else like it, anywhere. Legendary. Awe-inspiring. A tribute to the rugged spirit of the Pacific Northwest. Monumental lodging on Mt Hood with year round skiing. This isn’t your average, run-of-the-mill ski lodge.

Declared a National Historic Landmark in 1977, Timberline Lodge is one of Oregon’s most popular tourist attractions, drawing nearly two million visitors every year. Considered an architectural wonder, it’s still being used for its original intent—a magnificent ski lodge and mountain retreat for all to enjoy.

Timberline Lodge is filled with amazing spaces that beg enjoyment. Our main headhouse lobby features three fireplaces at the base of a 90 foot chimney. Our outdoor patios offer the most stunning views in Oregon. Our outdoor pool is heated and open year round. With so many places to explore all under one roof, you’ll feel as if the Lodge is an extension of your guest room.
