Less than 20 miles northeast of Bend, Brasada Ranch feels worlds away, sitting on 1,800 acres where the high desert meets the Cascade Mountains. The 32-room hotel was renovated in 2011 and is filled with endless outdoor activities, a state-of-the-art equestrian center and a scenic 18-hole golf course. There’s also nothing rustic about the 17,000-square-foot athletic center, which has multiple pools (even a waterfall), a fitness center and two tennis courts. Guests stay in either a Ranch House Suite or a King Guest Room. The suites are spacious and have panoramic views and private terraces. All have a rustic look, and many come with such details as gas fireplaces; 42-inch flat-screen TVs and iPod docks add a modern twist on ranch living. After a day of activity, be sure to sample chef Adrian Carpenter’s exquisite farm-to-table cuisine (standouts include Alaskan black cod and buffalo carpaccio) and the views at the Range restaurant. He also helms the Ranch House restaurant, serving “ranch-style comfort food” and pouring delicious Oregon microbrews and wines.
In the Area
Though many of the area’s biggest draws are on-site — namely, the Brasada Canyons Golf Course and the equestrian center — the concierge can arrange for activities from mountain biking and fly fishing (there’s a stocked pond on the property) to hiking and rock climbing. It’s also worth making the 20-minute drive to Bend, where craft beer geeks can sample from the 24 taps (and house-made sausage, bread and mustard) at Deschutes Brewery & Public House. Since 1936, Bend’s Pine Tavern has had pine trees growing in the middle of the dining room and has been serving its amazing sourdough scones and honey butter. Reservations are a must.
How to Get There
I attended a wedding at Brasada and it was a fantastic location. Although I did not stay the night, I did see the rooms because some family was staying there. The rooms were amazing — roomy, clean, with great views. The ranch also has horses for riding, a huge pool, and a golf course. If the ranch provides food for occasions such as weddings, it was phenomenal too.
Enjoyed a quiet dinner on a Sunday night. I had brick chicken and my husband seared scallops. Misto frito (lightly fried vegetables) as an appetizer. Outstanding. Delicious. Best scallops my husband ever had. Best restaurant chicken I’ve ever had. We’ll make the trip back just to eat here again. Excellent service too.
We stayed in the main Ranch House - great size room & bathroom with fire pit & hot tub right outside. Restaurant right upstairs, though not audible from the room.
Firstly - the restaurant cuisine is excellent. Dish composition & sophistication you don't normally see in central Oregon. Had x4 of the Entrees while we were there & all excellently cooked, particularly impressed with the curried lamb shank.
Staff couldn't have been more helpful, went out of their way to help us access free laundry facilities that we weren't strictly entitled to - even gave us tide pods!
Very professional spa experience that doubles as the golf club house. Nice hiking trails in the back too. Not a single bad word to say about the place - recommend it.
My husband and I took our daughter to Brasada for her 18th birthday celebration. We stayed in the 2 bedroom cabin with a hot tub and it was truly amazing! The fully stocked kitchen allowed us to make an amazing dinner. The hot tub was on and ready to go when we arrived and it was very relaxing at the end of the day. We rode horses at the ranch - and the ride was absolutely gorgeous. The ride took us through the 1800 acre property for an hour and a half. Just amazing.
Our daughter took advantage of the on-site Spa and had a massage and a facial while my husband and I took advantage of the Ranch House restaurant Happy Hour outside by the fire pit. We also went to the Ranch House for dinner one night. Their menu of comfort food is perfect at day's end.
The staff always had a smile on their face, they went above expectations, and always made sure we had what we needed. They shuttle you to and from places around the ranch if necessary, and are always available and responsive to any need we had.
Perfect place to get away from it all, with all the comforts of home.
Love Brasada’s location and views! Probably what made me stay with them in the first place. The driveway to the ranch is incredible and scenic. Love the main building and the little grab and go country store adjacent. Food was average at best which was disappointing but our cabin was lovely! Plenty of space, nicely done. The pool area won large points with my family. Thought it was funny they section off part of the deck for residents but I get it.
