About this cabin

In its post-war heyday, the Barlow Cabin—on the route of the historic Barlow Road in Government Camp—hosted everyone from Scandinavian royalty to the world’s top ski racers. Movie star Rock Hudson stopped in for a drink during the filming of Bend in the River (1952). The cabin was built in 1946 by Timberline Lodge’s first publicist, George Henderson, as a compact, convivial base camp and gathering place for skiers and climbers and, eventually, his own children and grandchildren. Now pet friendly !!


Modern and rustic with Pendleton blankets, down comforters, and a wood-burning fireplace. There’s a smart TV with Hulu and WiFi to stream . You can hook up your iPod/iPhone to the stereo to play your choice of music. The Crosstown Trail, with its links to the Westleg Road and Glade and Alpine ski trails, is a short walk/ski away. Walk to dinner in Government Camp or stay in to cook in the small but well-equipped kitchen. On the walls are photos and memorabilia from the 1930s and ’40s depicting Government Camp’s emergence as a recreation destination. While you’re there, page through George’s own Mount Hood memoir, Lonely on the Mountain.



The living room, kitchen, small bathroom with shower, and kids’ bedroom (bunk beds) are downstairs. Upstairs are three small bedrooms and a half-bath. One upstairs bedroom has twin beds, one has a queen bed, and the third bedroom has one queen bed and one twin. Capacity is limited to parties of eight or fewer. The Barlow Cabin is not wheelchair accessible. Pets allowed (60 lb limit)

    Wonderful!!

    The cabin is adorable! Super charming and in a perfect location for walking to everything. I highly recommend this property. The owners where helpful in every way. I even had a glitch with my rental car and they happily helped me out. Lovely people with a great spot in government camp.

    Funky little retro cabin

    If you need high end appliances and modern aesthetics, this is not the cabin for you. I found this retro cabin surprisingly charming and really enjoyed it. Outdated, but I enjoyed the throwback feel of it. Loads of space right outside the cabin for kids to go sledding and play in the snow. Bring your own sleds and the let the kids play. Also walking distance to downtown Govt Camp restaurants.

    Great location / Classic get away cabin

    Rating Details: The property manager was very helpful. The vacation rental was very clean. I was very happy with the location. I was satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: We enjoyed our stay and the Barlow cabin. It is in a prime location to enjoy the area surrounding Mt Hood. It is as advertised and comfortable. That being said the property is older and has few amenities and a renter should be prepared for that. we used it as a place to rest after being outside hiking and sightseeing and not as a 24/7 hangout. The management company was fantastic and attentive to our needs, personable, and pleasant to deal with.

    Cute historic gem

    Great little cabin, felt like going back in time, lovely warm fireplace, games and more. Small kitchen and no washer/dryer make it challenging to stay for too long, but the overall expereince was wonderful and the staff very reachable and friendly. Bonus WiFi and TV helped to balance out the sweet old touches.

    Great and historic cabin

    Love the Barlow cabin. Convenient and very easy. Not psyched about neighbors blow M-80s overhead in the forest for 3 hours.

    Fun in the sun and snow!

    We had a great time at the Barlow cabin. We were able to do some sledding right on the property and since it happened to be 70° out, we didn't even need our coats! The cabin was cozy and the fireplace was a nice way to relax in the evening and take the chill off. It isn't the place to go if you're looking for a modern place with lots of amenities but we loved the little accents of it's history displayed throughout the home. The location is great and we would definitely stay again!
