Base Camp #21 .. This condo is exactly, & very aptly described, the name of the complex is "Base Camp" it is literally, steps away from the base of the main ski area at Kirkwood, shops, ski rentals & restaurant's. A perfect, location to "Rest Your Hat" at Kirkwood during ski season, or any other time of the year for that matter ? BaseCamp complex was built in 1972, naturally, it shows its age, but you can't tell it apart from any of the others at Kirkwood from the outside.
Prior to us staying at Kirkwood, we stayed in a new condo at Gov Camp Mt Hood, Ore. Base Camp #21 was a lot different, however, the owners have made up grades to this condo. Upgrades we identified; New above stove microwave, dish washer, stove, fridge/freezer, kitchen counter tops and flooring.
The kitchen is VERY WELL stocked, with every cookware/cutlery item needed, incl a slow cooker/crock pot, which made my wife very happy, as she loves to put the dinner in the crock pot so there's no cooking to be done at night. The dining/living rm is very spacious which is typical of older condos v newer ones, it is well appointed with a Lg 'L' shaped couch, 40"+ flat screen TV, dvd player etc, there is wireless internet which worked well, and a large beefy glass top dining table which seats 6. The kit/dining room/living room have views of the slopes and surrounding area. There is a full Bath/R downstairs with new shower, flooring, counter tops, sinks & fixtures.
Upstairs are 3 spacious bedrooms, 1 - King, 1- Queen, and one with 1- single bed and bunk beds. The Master BR is Lg with a view of the ski slopes/lifts from a big picture window you can see all the action around them. The m/bath, has 2 new separate sinks, fixtures & counter top tile. The separate shower/toilet has just been remodeled, it has beautiful tile blending into the entire floor of the bath/rm. The two other b/rms were spacious, clean with views of the slopes. The King & Queen beds (the only one's we used) are not hard or super soft, but we were very comfortable during our stay. There is no washer and drier. Heating is elec wall units, & large fire place, we had NO problem staying warm. The condo was clean when we arrived, as you would expect.
Our * rating is based upon, location, condo appointments, price, convenience/access to amenities.
A few minor upgrades would make this a 5 star location, but are not necessary & may increase rental price ?
We would definitely stay here again. Stewart & Andrea. March 2018
