Sunriver Resort is a family-friendly escape in Central Oregon’s Cascade backcountry, and it packs a whole lot of fun into its 3,300 wooded acres, including two swimming pools, 26 tennis courts, four golf courses, seven restaurants and bars and a full-service spa. Guestrooms have pitched wooden ceilings and private balconies, and stone gas fireplaces keep things cozy. The expansive resort has a Fort Funnigan’s children’s program, where little ones three to 10 can partake in arts and crafts and day trips to the nature center. But if you want the whole gang to stick together, explore the great outdoors by renting wheels from the Bike Barn and pedaling the resort’s 35 miles of winding trails during the summer or drive less than a mile to Sunriver Homeowners Aquatic & Recreation Center, which has a lazy river, two water slides, an outdoor adult hot tub, playground and more (this facility is free for Sunriver Resort guests). Elsewhere, there are seven on-site restaurants to choose from, including an Italian bistro offering wood-fired pizzas, a fine-dining restaurant with an emphasis on homegrown cuisine and an alfresco beer garden with pub grub and more than a dozen craft brews on tap.
In the Area
Located in the pinewood base of the Cascade Mountains, Sunriver is a quiet riverside town that comes alive during the summer and winter seasons when its mountain trails are in full swing. From December to early April, the 71 runs at Mount Bachelor are a flurry of activity. Resort guests can ride to and from the mountain via a shuttle service at a discounted price. Afterward, soothe your achy muscles with a signature treatment at Sage Springs Spa — the 100-minute Sun Down includes a nourishing body wrap followed by a sleep-inducing hot stone massage. Sunriver manages 63 holes at four award-winning golf courses, two of which are private and grant exclusive access for resort guests. Play all nine holes at the family-friendly Caldera, or for a more scenic game, arrange preferred tee times at Crosswater, which spans 600 acres of forest and preserved wetlands. The vast Deschutes territory is as majestic by day as it is at night — get a glimpse at binary stars, globular clusters and, if the timing’s right, a meteor shower at the Oregon Observatory.
How to Get There
The property was a great place to stay. There were 14 people in our group. We were able to have each family have their own bedroom with an attached bathroom to each room. The younger children loved the bunk beds. They thought it was great fun. The house gave us the ability to be together and yet have room to be spread out in small groups. The house was very clean and nicely furnished.
Great place for family bonding and outdoor enthusiasts. To get most out of excursions cook more so that you can enjoy outings as they can be a bit pricey for an entire family at their hourly rates. Their golf courses are not but considering other US courses and layouts I feel the green fees are a bit high considering everything else you pay for. It must be the resort tax.
First of all - it’s Sunriver! It’s stunning! Renting floats and the miles of bike trails alone are perfect for the family. Add the gorgeous property, waterfalls, great village, and pools- it’s a family heaven. Come and there is no way you can be disappointed!
However, as we are still here do agree with many reviews regarding the rooms and how spot on they are. We are in the 200’s lodge village and there is a very unique smell to the room - it’s not the best. As I’m writing this I also see leftover painters tape on the trim, and a very dusty clock. For a luxury resort w what can be over a $350 a night price tag- this attention to detail can make or break a persons stay as previous reviews show. Also, just FYI there is zero storage place in our room and the corner unit must have a kitchenette bc every morning we are woken to loud food steps and very (extremely?) loud microwave beeping. We have only used the maid service once to come in and clean room bc I like to clean up a bit before they come in and honestly w no storage we have suitcases everywhere and the bathroom sink counter is full of stuff - so not like any cleaning can really happen. But, it not that important to us - they always willing to give us some fresh towels. So upper units may be more desireable if you want to avoid noisy neighbors - and you will have to live out of suitcases for the trip. I also have to agree re beds. I have zero back problems and the first night on the mattress actually asked my husband if it would be weird to call front office and ask for new mattress bc back hurting. I’m now used to it i guess. I know location trumps everything and we can’t believe we have not been to Sunriver sooner - but think it important that they pay closer attention to detail re the rooms. We outside most of the time but as a wonderful resort you should aspire to have your interior match your exterior.
For the price and website representation we expected a nicer atmosphere and overall accommodations. These expectations were unfortunately not met. Our room was shabby, not clean and very circa 1950's.
Fabulous location and entertainment options for large groups. Something for everyone to do. Loved the 4th of July festivities around the Village and bike parade. We did the Paulina Plunge bike ride, hike to Benham Falls and a float trip on the Deschutes out of the marina.
