Our group of 6 women out for our annual hiking trip used Forest View as home base for day hikes. The location was convenient for the low elevation hikes that were not snow covered in early October. It would have been a bit more of a drive for the Timberline region hikes that were snow covered. In general we found the house to be ideal for our purposes which include cooking together for several evenings. We all felt that some of the important and necessary appliances need attention or replacement. The dishwasher is very sad; it is generally rickety, silverware baskets won't stand up, racks won't stay on tracks, and takes hours to run a regular cycle. This is a serious issue for a house that holds up to 10 people! The gas grill would only light one small section of burner and we were unable to use it to cook the kabobs that we brought. Finally, the media devices all required many, many minutes of fiddling to operate and sometimes we had to give up. Any electronic devices that depend on wifi (such as the Apple TV and your personal laptop or phone) are nearly useless as the wifi is (maybe understandably) weak and unreliable. On the good side, hot water was plentiful, beds comfy, furnace acceptable and ambiance, decor and space allocation were all fine.

We had s wonderful stay. The house was lovely and was located close to lots of hiking trails. The only downside was that the WiFi did not work consistently and we had difficulty using the tv. The setting was beautiful and the house fit our needs perfectly!
We love the amazing setting at the Forest View Lodge, too. There are several locations around Mt Hood where the wifi service is very limited including here where the Internet speed is slow. Cable and satellite TV are not available at this location, so we rely on steaming TV with the slow Internet. This location is perfect for guests who can get by for a few days without TV and with limited access to the Internet.
