Trip Report Sun River Resort Oregon - A Great Place for a Family Vacation!

Jump to last reply

Our extended family of 21 get together every three years. We range in age from 1 to late 60’s. This year we selected Sun River Resort, near Bend, OR for our reunion, and we not disappointed. This is really a marvelous place for families. There are a number of different lodging options available. We rented two houses on the same street, close enough so the kids could bicycle back and forth. We had walkie-talkies which made communication easy. We come from all over the country, some of us flew into the nearby Redmond/Bend airport.

We took turns hosting dinners. There are two well stocked grocery stores at the resort, but we took a couple of trips back into Bend (about 10 miles) for some major grocery items. There were two pools to choose from, golf, horse back riding and river float trips. We also drove a few miles across Highway 97 to Lava Lake Caves, and walked into the caves with our kids. They loved it. We arranged all the female adults a day at the lavish spa.

There is a “Fort Funnigan” for the kids, but we didn’t use it. We kept the kids active with our own things to do.

There are 35 miles of bike trails and we got most of ‘em. Our house had 7 bikes in it, we brought two of our own. The Resort has a “Bike Barn” where bikes of all sizes are available for rent.

We rented through the Resort via their web site:

and had many discounts and privileges available (like the pool). Renting and check in procedure was a breeze, as all the agents are very friendly and helpful. The homes we rented were well maintained and clean, basically as advertised on the web site.

We all had a terrific time, especially the kids. I would recommend this resort area to anyone looking for family oriented vacations. Will answer any questions, if I can.
