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.

Stayed in a Lodge Suite - lovely little kitchenette which allowed for preparing a little food on our own. 2 bathrooms were also helpful for 3 people. We stayed in a "pet friendly" room which put us near the golf course, and a wide natural area between the rooms and the course that made it very easy to be traveling with a pet. It was quiet,… Read more

We had an amazing time at our one day staycation. Our teenage a girls had so much fun at the pool. We loved being able to swim and sit in the hot tub outside. It was gorgeous out there. The indoor swimming and water slide were a big hit too. The Christmas display was beautiful. We loved the fireplace in the room as we snuggled in our cozy bed.

Sage Springs Spa was awesome- nice workout area upstairs to use before my massage & a steam room that was actually hot! Looking forward to our next staycation already! Read less
