Who stays at Summit Meadow Cabins?

The majority of our winter guests, many w/friends or extended families and especially those that rent Chalets on weekends, come back year after year.

The second weekend in December, 3 large cabins were enjoyed by a group who have celebrated Nicole's birthday, on the same weekend for the last 15 years. Initially they were a group with little ones, just 20-30 of their closest friends and family. It's been great to see the kids grow.

Upon leaving on Wednesday, Mary whose family enjoyed a midweek stay left the following note.

"It was thoroughly delightful...from the lovely fresh flowers, to
immaculate house, to a great wood burning stove that "drew" faultlessly.. to the
welcome call to be sure we'd gotten here. It was all so well-done.

Full moon nights, an "animal Christmas tree" in the meadow. Who could ask
for anything more?
Thanks so much, We'll be back. "

We have a GREAT winter midweek special.

Pay for 2 winter midqweek nights (Sun-Th),
the 3rd is free!
This includes Oregon Spring Break Dates.

Are we really complaining because its been sunny for the past week?

Not when the view from inside our Meadow Chalet before sunset is this wonderful!

The other bonus has been skiing after dark with the half moon shining in the clear night sky. Pretty hard to beat!

In spite of the "springlike" conditions; sunny days, cold nights, snow that is firm in the shade, softer in the sun, and the low snow pack, folks had a great time xc skiing and snowshoeing around Trillium Lake this weekend.

The full moon is this weekend, so as long as it's not totally overcast, skiing and snowshoeing after dark will be quite incredible!

We do have openings this weekend and next in one or both of our small cabins (Mineral Creek Cabin & Falls Creek Aframe). Call 503-272-3494 or email us at to make your reservations!

Of course we wish we had more snow on the ground, at least enough to set a nice track with the snocat. But sooner or later we'll be sick of the snow coming day after day, so it's been great getting our early season vitamin D fix.
