Sunriver Resort

Sun River, Oregon

The hotel

More village than hotel, Sunriver Resort’s part of a private 3,300 acre community along the Deschutes River, in the foothills of the Cascade Mountains. Designed to immerse you in al fresco experiences, it’s filled with all manner of outdoorsy attractions. There are the simple pleasures, like 40 miles of biking and hiking trails, and stargazing at the observatory. And then there are the uber-indulgent ones, like stables, a marina, a spa, 9 dining experiences ranging from gourmet to beer garden, an airstrip, and 63 holes of golf spread across 4 courses, one of which will host the 2017 PGA Professional Championship. A destination in itself, The Cove is Sunriver’s swimming zone, with dining, a zero-entry pool, fire pits, even nature trails. Thank goodness they lay on free transport around the resort.

Loved our stay except for a bad experience at the Crosswater Course. Rooms were clean and quiet. Food at Carsons exceptional. Golf courses were not all in top shape but expected this time of year. Had a great breakfast at Sintra. Loved the atmosphere at Sunriver Brewing.

I enjoyed my stay at Sunriver Resort. While on business, I still felt like I was on vacation. The room was gorgeous and had a stunning view of Mt. Bachelor, and the fireplace in the room made it a cozy feeling.

We stayed in the Sunriver Resort in a beautiful, spacious suite with a lovely peaceful outlook towards the golf course. We had paid for breakfast, which was very good, but just a warning that some of the suites are quite a long way from the main building. We had a 5 minute walk which was OK because we had beautiful weather, but it wouldn't have been so good in the rain. We actually had a fully equipped kitchen so we didn't need to buy breakfast but we felt like being spoiled. The resort was actually very close to a nice supermarket. The resort was very peaceful and we had a great stay there. Read less

Loved the room on the upper floor with deck, was very quiet and beautiful. The deck itself does need to be refurbished though. Loved the rocking chairs and table on the deck. The bed was incredibly comfortable. Staff was very helpful and kind.
