The Mule Deer Cabin redefines alpine style.

Mule Deer Cabin

Find It!
Now here’s our idea of the ultimate mountain getaway. Designed by local branding company Twenty Four Seven, this slick 3,400-square-foot, three-story palace (which sleeps up to 21 people) is loaded with a stylish mix of low-slung sofas, antler chandeliers, a retro-cool indoor-outdoor fireplace, 500-thread-count linens, European-style walk-in showers—oh, and a full bar. Plus there are enough mule-deer knickknacks here and there for a Where’s Waldo? book. Expect to pony up some cash, though—nights here run $850. Business types take note: the Mule Deer is retreat-ready with a remote-control four-foot-by-six-foot projector screen. —Kelly O’Connor

Mt Hood Inn

Find It!
The setup is simple, the décor is outdated, and the lift tickets are discounted—the Mt Hood Inn gives you everything you need and nothing you don’t. The things you need include covered parking, downstairs ski lockers, and an on-site ski tuning room. Toss in the fact that you can take a free shuttle to Mt Hood Skibowl and stumble home from the Ice Axe Grill right next door, and you’ll realize that this is the best deal on the mountain. —RR

The Swedish Stuga

Find It!
This inviting little cabin has charm to spare. Red clapboard walls rise out of the snow against a thickly forested backdrop. Nearby, a stream trickles. A handsome flagstone patio leads guests inside, where large windows let natural light bounce off gleaming hardwood floors made from reclaimed Douglas firs. Tuck into a sunny nook with a book (the cabin has a great selection), or gaze at the forest canopy while soaking in an antique claw-foot tub. Skiing at Timberline is just up the road, but with 24 acres of ski trails right outside the door, the Swedish Stuga can be your own private resort for the weekend. —KO

The Resort at the Mountain

Find It!
Nestled on the western slope of Mount Hood, just 15 minutes from Government Camp, the 300-acre Resort at the Mountain offers all the trappings of opulence: elegant modern furnishings; an upscale restaurant that serves fresh, local cuisine; and a lavish 3,500-square-foot spa where you can pamper yourself with hot stone massages, Himalayan-salt body wraps, and holistic facial treatments. —RR
