The Resort at the Mountain
After months of extensive remodeling, the $17 million renovation of The Resort at The Mountain has created a beautiful new addition to the mountain community of Welches, in the western highlands of Mt. Hood just an hour southeast of Portland. The resort's sleek and contemporary new lobby reflects the overall new ambience. With the addition of the new Altitude restaurant to complement Tartan’s Steakhouse, the Oregon golf, ski and meeting resort has added a new level of luxury to dining in the Mt. Hood National Forest. Nearly the entire property has been going through a makeover, from the ultra- modern new entryway and updated ballrooms to a complete renovation of all the guest rooms. Spa services will be added in 2009. The Resort at The Mountain dates back to 1882, when Samuel Welch and his son Billy purchased 320 acres along the Salmon River.
