Wow, what a magical place! And what a great way to spend a birthday. And it couldn't happen to a nicer person.


Looks like a lovely time... Happy Belated Birthday...


Thanks for sharing with us... such wonderful memories you've made.


What a lovely way to spend your birthday!


Truly one of my favorite places to stay! You didn't go swimming or in the hot tub? That's awesome, especially when it's cold and the stars are out . . . even better if it happens to be snowing!

What a awesome place thanks for bringing us along and Happy Birthday...

Oh, I am so happy for you, Lucky Birthday Girl! That sounds like quite the memorable trip. How beautiful.
And if I'm not mistaken, you're driving in a Scion...
Thanks for sharing your special moments there through your lovely photographs!

Sounds like a great place, and a great way, to spend your birthday.



Thanks for capturing all those architectural details. Love those Arts & Crafts lamps specially.

You ARE lucky. Glad you had a happy birthday, and yes, "I want to go to there!".

Ach, I'm so envious: my husband and I spent our 10th anniversary (Valentine's Day!) at the Timberline Lodge! There was a blizzard (buried cars) and we sat in the outdoor hot pool and watched it! Then we got back to our room to discover we'd left the window open a bit and snow had drifted inside. Ahh...LOVE the Timberline Lodge (and Heidi, the St. Bernard!). Thanks for sharing!

ahhhhhh...the snow, the light, the quiet, the woods, the delight...lucky you!

I want to go there, too! Kind of reminds me of the B&B in Colorado where we stayed a few years ago. (OK now I want to go back).

Oh, and that's my very favorite OCMS song. Thanks for the video :)


Oh, what a lovely place to spend a wintery birthday weekend! I love Timerline Lodge. Love your photos; it's true: that place never changes!


Wow! I feel like I was there too! How beautiful and what a great birthday.


Thank you for sharing this magical time with us. I truly resonated with your words of remembering what it was like to be in a wheelchair and want things...for me it was 2 years of bedrest and chemo, and now I am blessed to be making things with my hands again,as my work....sooooo grateful!


This is so beautiful, both the pictures and the story! ♥


That is a wonderful story, thank you for sharing your birthday magic!


Very lucky indeed.

Loved your post. Nice to find a Portland blogger. I live in Hillsboro. I absolutely love Oregon.


"When I was a little girl, I had a book of Russian fairy tales. So I've been here before."
Best. Line. Ever.


Sounds absolutely perfect - a wonderful way to celebrate your birthday, thanks for sharing


Bliss! Thanks for sharing.


Oh I've never wanted to be somewhere so badly in my life! What an amazing place and I LOVE the history behind it! I'm so glad you got to spend your birthday in such a fantastic spot!!


Such a fairytale! Perfection. I'm so glad you had the kind of birthday that you never want to end.
