Area Information
Walking distance to Ski Bowl, drive to Timberline or Meadows
Ravenwood is right in the middle of Govy, on the business loop road, behind a clump of fir trees for privacy. Look at our hand drawn map with the pictures. Ravenwood's driveway does not require sno-park permits, The stores, shops, restaurants, are so close you will not use your car.
We can't guarantee ten feet of snow, but Government Camp is you best bet for a winter wonderland, Lower elevations such as Rhododendron, Zigzag or Welches, frequently will have bare ground and rain while its snowing in Govy.

We had a wonderful time. Your place is sooooo cute.

I am sorry but we did not get the dishwasher unloaded. We waited for it
but it seemed to take forever.

The weather could not have been more beautiful.

Thank you for sharing your home.

We spent a wonderful THanksgiving last year at
Ravenwood! Thank you so much. We now are looking
for a new mattress and remembered how comfortable the
mattress was in the downstairs bedroom at Ravenwood
(it's a king-size). Please email me the name and type
of mattress that is if you have the opportunity!

Thanks again. Hope to stay at Ravenwood again someday

Thank you to all who have stayed at Ravenwood. "Government Camps best"
If you are considering reserving Ravenwood, please be advised that we reserve almost every weekend for the ski season very fast. Some years by Thanksgiving it is too late to get a date. With only 16 to 20+ weekends in a season all cabins In town book up.
Be sure to plan early, don't wait for the first snowfall.

John and Linda,

Our New Years weekend at your cabin was everything I had hoped it would be. The cabin is wonderful. The weather was perfect. Everyone had a fantastic time. My 73 year old father will never let us forget that us youngster could keep up with him on the sledding hill.

Happy New Year!!

Just a note in case anyone really reads this guestbook.
We still get lots of emails from people that stayed at Ravenwood (all very positive) We continue to have virtually no bad guests. Even the party animals act responsibly (unlike at the beach) Speaking of animals we just discovered the porch racoons can squeeze under the snow door. This summer I'll add an extension.
Thanksgiving 2007 the snow hit hard and kept coming (snow caves this season) We have already booked Christmas and New Years 08/09 a year in advance. Still 2-3 months left this ski season and the snow keeps coming. The Government Camp face lift and new construction has really changed our little village. (I hope for the better) It looks to me like boarders now out number skiers. ( arrrrgh)
We are still leasing Ravenwood to High Cascade Snowboard Camp each summer (ten years and no problems from all the kids despite the naysayers)

OK, it's me again. I fixed the Raccoons, unless they can squeeze thru a 1" gap.
Snow update: for over four months now we have had more than eight feet on the ground. This season (07/08)is going down as a record year. Timberline has a new quad chair. Skibowl has a new Snocat that can groom the very steep upper bowl.

Hello everyone, I have ignored this guestbook feature for several years now, for awhile I was posting past snow conditions etc. Ravenwood has become very stable. We have about 40% return guests, Government Camp saw a face lift a few years ago, talk of becoming a city is still going on. This summer/fall I plan to overhaul the upstairs bathroom floor. We had to replace the furnace 2 winters back, what a mess and expense. No problems, no baggage, Ravenwood is by far the most relaxed cabin around. Oh yeah fore what it's worth, the snow last year was not memorable
