Central Oregon's premier family playground and luxurious destination resort encapsulates so many things that are distinctive about central Oregon, from the mountain views and winding river, to the biking, rafting, golfing, skiing, and family or romantic getaways that live up to the resort's tagline of "the start of something unforgettable." A network of paved bike-and-pedestrian paths connects all corners of the 3,300-acre resort; there are four golf courses (including
the renowned Crosswater), tennis courts, marina, stables, swimming pools, skiing at nearby Mt. Bachelor, an indoor fitness club and spa, Fort Funnigan for kids, restaurants, and lots of other activities and organized tours. Accomodations vary from vacation-house rentals to guest rooms and condos around the main lodge, decorated in a distinguished Northwest-lodge style.
