Timberline Lodge is a National Historic Landmark. Built in 1937 by the Works Progress Administration under President Franklin Roosevelt’s New Deal, the Lodge was built as a Federal Arts Project to be an alpine ski lodge. Today, it is considered the quintessential American ski lodge, and Oregonians in particular consider it a place to celebrate their lives in the mountains. Visitors to the Lodge enjoy fine dining, outdoor recreation, spectacular scenery, conference facilities, and a year around heated swimming pool. Situated at the 6000 foot level of beautiful Mount Hood, Timberline offers 70 guestrooms and Oregon’s only true ski in/ski out slope-side lodging experience. It also boasts the longest ski season in North America, and is known for its famous summer ski program. In all seasons of the year, Timberline is a popular tourist attraction and a jumping off spot for world-class outdoor recreation.
Historic Hotels of America was founded in 1989 by the National Trust for Historic Preservation. In 2007, Preferred Hotel Group partnered with the National Trust to grow and enhance the program and its group of properties. With more than 240 properties that have faithfully maintained their authenticity, sense of place, and architecture integrity in the United States, including Puerto Rico and the US Virgin Islands, Historic Hotels is comprised mostly of independently owned and operated properties.
