Welcome to Sunriver

Photo courtesy of Suriver Resort


he Sunriver Area Chamber of Commerce and Cascade Publications Inc., publishers of this magazine, are excited to share this unique and special place with you. From the start, Sunriver was planned to be a place where we could live with nature in harmony. This was the first development of its kind to integrate environmental engineering concerns in the planning of the community. The needs of nature and wildlife in Sunriver are just as important as our everyday comforts. Over the last 40 years, Sunriver has become the perfect blend of destination resort and residential community. You can do everything under the sun on 3,300 acres of forest and meadows bordered by the Deschutes River and public lands. Sunriver is a place for families and there is something for everyone to do and enjoy regardless of age. It is a place where you can get away from a busy schedule, spend quality family time and reflect on what’s really important in life. It is also an excellent place to live and work. For the fortunate people who call Sunriver home, the community provides all the public and business services needed for work and play. Experiencing all Sunriver has to offer 24/7 and 365 days a year can be the ultimate lifestyle choice for families and outdoor-



loving active adults. Although the community has been the family-friendly vacation destination of choice for nearly half a century, thanks to significant investments by stakeholders and homeowners, this crown jewel of the high desert continues to experience a remarkable renaissance. The beautiful Sunriver Homeowners Aquatic & Recreation Center (SHARC), located on 22 acres between Overlook Road and Beaver Drive, features seasonal outdoor aquatics including a leisure pool, two slides, a lazy river and splash pads and pool for the wee ones. The indoor pool and adjacent outdoor hot tub provide adults with year round fitness swimming and social soaking and the pool caters to the younger set with a beach entry, liquid vortex, bubblers, overhead splashers and water basketball area. The Village at Sunriver, Sunriver’s retail core, continues to reinvest in capital improvements. In recent years many buildings have been replaced or have received major remodels and the rejuvenation is still under way. The large courtyard at the heart of The Village hosts many community events throughout the summer. The Sunriver Resort has replaced its Lodge Village pool with The Cove, a complex that includes a large wading pool,

massive sunbathing deck, a long waterslide and elevated hot tub, all of which overlooks a new man-made lake with children’s sand play area and nature trail. Simultaneously, the Resort remodeled its lounge, restaurant and lodge kitchen with a modern Northwest theme that features more windows, more natural light and improved views of the surrounding scenery. As a Sunriver visitor, you can enjoy the same amenities that lured homeowners to this special place— more than 40 miles of paved bike and walking paths, the scenic Deschutes River and Sunriver Resort’s world-class golf in your backyard. Challenging play on 26 exceptionally maintained tennis courts, along with a great tennis program, have earned Sunriver a “top 50 tennis destinations in the U.S.” ranking by Tennis Magazine. Sunriver boasts its own nature center and celestial observatory, private airport, horse stables and river marina. Within a short drive, you can explore dozens of alpine lakes, the Newberry National Volcanic Monument, the Cascade Range and the majestic Deschutes River. The choice of accommodations is just as wide. Reserve a romantic hotel-like River Lodge room, enjoy the convenience of a condominium or spread out in one of hundreds

of tastefully appointed, fully furnished private homes that accommodate from two to 20 or more. A luxurious executive retreat is well-suited for the ultimate relaxing vacation. Looking for three homes on the same lane for a big family reunion? Sunriver has them all. Summer is the most popular season for vacationers, but Sunriver’s proximity to the slopes of Mt. Bachelor entices snow-riders of all ages to stay here during winter and early spring. The peaceful, visually stunning autumn months are the favorites of those who appreciate warm days on the golf course or bike trails and crisp nights with the hint of wood smoke in the air. For a four-season destination, you just can’t beat Sunriver. If this is your introduction to Sunriver—welcome! We hope that your weekend getaway or family vacation might just turn into a lifetime. The Sunriver Chamber of Commerce is here to help make your vacation and visit the most enjoyable experience of your life...or help you relocate your business or residence to this lovely place. If you’d like more information about Sunriver, don’t hesitate to drop by the Sunriver Chamber of Commerce office next to Blondie’s Pizza in 2 Country Mall on Beaver Drive. 2016-17 | www.SunriverChamber.com

Sunriver History


n the shores of the Deschutes River 15 miles south of Bend, tucked away in the ponderosa pines, is Sunriver. This gem of Central Oregon offers world-class golfing, biking, fly fishing, skiing and general relaxation that makes it the destination of choice for travelers from around the world. While it’s now known for its fine dining, championship golf courses and luxurious lodging, its beginnings were much more humble. Nearly 7,000 years ago lava flows dammed the Deschutes River at Benham Falls, backing up a lake that covered much of what is now Sunriver. When the river finally broke through and the lake receded, a lush meadow surrounded by thick forests was left behind. The area was a natural gathering spot for Native Americans based on numerous artifacts found in the area dating back thousands of years. During the winter of 1843, explorer John C. Fremont and guide Kit Carson ventured into the area on their way south. In 1855, the Army Corps of Topographical Engineers surveyed a route through the area for a railroad between California and the Columbia River. This party was led by Robert Stockton Williamson and Henry Larcom Abbot. Among the group were geologists, botanists, physicians, naturalists, engineers and soldiers. In the late 1800s, cattlemen began to drive their herds to the area to graze in the lush meadowlands. The Vandeverts were among the first homesteaders in the area, their ranch was just south of current day Sunriver. Their children

attended the Meadow School, which was located very close to the present Sunriver Lodge. During the next 50 years the area was used by the cattlemen, trappers and a few hardy pioneers who settled in the area with their families. In the midst of World War II, the U.S. Government wanted to establish a combat engineer training facility on a site that resembled the climate and topography of Northern Europe. Robert Sawyer, publisher of the Bend Bulletin, persuaded the Army Corps of Engineers to build the Army training post 18 miles south of town on the Shonquist Ranch, the site of modern day Sunriver. It was named Camp Abbot. Local folks were surprised the Army found the almost 9,700 acres straddling the Deschutes River a perfect place to train soldiers. Those who helped build the camp were remembered as saying what a miserable job it was. Construction began in December 1942 and continued through the worst winter in 30 years, with more than 60 inches of snow through March 1943. Camp Abbot officially opened the following year. Training included basic combat skills, marksmanship, field maneuvers, bridge building and demolition. The camp was a self-contained city complete with water and sewer systems and housing up to 10,000 people at a time. Many of its structures were built from the surrounding timber and stone, most notably the impressive officer’s club with its high ceiling, large stone fireplace and balcony overlooking the main floor.

In the years following WWII, some of the former Camp Abbot land was returned to the U.S. Forest Service, but 5,500 acres were sold as private land. The property changed hands multiple times until 1965 when John Gray and Donald McCallum obtained the land for development, forming Sunriver Properties. The Sunriver Lodge was constructed, as were the stables, Meadows Golf Course and an airstrip. Additionally, large areas for residential home sites were plotted. The bike paths were created, although were originally designed for use by electric golf carts as an alternative means of transportation. Lot sales and home construction began in 1968. By the time John Gray sold the resort property to the Connecticut Mutual Life Insurance Company in 1974, some 600 private homes and condominiums had been built. During a severe economic recession in the 1970s, 2,200 of Sunriver’s original 5,500 acres were sold back to the U.S. Forest Service.

The SHARC That Loves Tourists By Brooke Snavely


uring more than 750,000 vacationers, residents and guests through its doors since its opening in 2012, SHARC visitors report being rejuvenated by the brilliant range of activities and amenities the $18 million facility offers to all ages and interests. The vast majority of SHARC visitors come in the warm summer months to frolic in the oversize outdoor pool, drift in the lazy river, plunge down the tube and body slides, dance in the water fountains, sunbathe on the massive pool deck and lawn and watch toddlers safely play in a separate wading pool and sand play area. Thousands of people screamed their way down the tubing hill, scrambled around the playground, shot hoops on the full size basketball court, tested their skills on the bocce ball court and picnicked in the park. Even when the weather turns cold, SHARC’s indoor,

multi-use pool continues to attract people. The pool’s zero entry beach with bubbling fountains, spinning water flower and dumping bucket entertain youngsters and the young at heart. School age children make themselves dizzy floating around in circles in the vortex water feature. Three adjacent lap lanes provide space for workouts, swim lessons, aquatic fitness classes and water volleyball. Aside from aquatics,SHARC’s 5,000-square foot Benham Hall hosts business meetings, weddings, banquets, public hearings, seminars, events and fundraisers. Access to SHARC is free to Sunriver property owners with a current homeowner ID, and those with SROA recreation passes and guests of rental properties enrolled in SROA’s Recreation Plus program. The general public is welcome via a daily gate fee. 541-585-5000 or www.sunriversharc.com

The waters in Central Oregon hold Rainbow Trout, Brown Trout, Brook Trout, Lake Trout, Bull Trout, Cutthroat Trout, native Redband Trout, Kokanee, Atlantic Salmon, Large and Smallmouth Bass, and for many months out of the year in the lower Deschutes River you can catch both Salmon and Steelhead on their return trip from the Pacific Ocean. Central Oregon’s crystal clear water and the abundance of natural food and insects produce beautiful and healthy fish. And the fish get big here. Trout over ten pounds are common. The state record Brown Trout is 28.5 pounds (caught at Paulina Lake, 20 minutes from Sunriver), the state record Lake Trout is 40.8 pounds (caught at Odell Lake, 45 minutes from Sunriver) and the state record Bull Trout is 23.2 pounds

In addition to offering the best hand-tied flies for the area, they both offer fly fishing equipment, complete guide services and of course, the real answer on where and how to catch fish.

Sunriver Anglers Club


he Sunriver Anglers Club was founded in 1977 as a way for like-minded people to protect our natural environment, conserve our resources, educate and encourage new fishermen and women, enjoy outdoor activities and of course to exchange fish stories. Members are eager to share their knowledge, experience and enjoyment of angling with all levels of anglers. They host a variety of outings and fishing trips to nearby lakes and streams, giving you an opportunity to learn how and where to fish in our bountiful area. The Sunriver Anglers have invested the club’s energy and resources in improving sport fishing in Central Oregon, supporting organizations working on stabilizing water flows on the Upper Deschutes and Little Deschutes Rivers, removing invasive fish from our high lakes and partnering with federal, state, county and other groups. One of its missions is to provide educational opportunities for school children to learn about fish habitat, basic fishing skills, water safety and the principles of stewardship. From co-sponsoring the Kokanee Karnival to hosting hundreds of kids at Free Fishing Day, they are committed to education. Volunteer opportunities include restoring river banks, improving fish habitats, removing Tui Chub from Oregon lakes, teaching young and beginning anglers and working with school groups to teach all aspects of angling from habitat to safety. They hold monthly fly fishing meetings on subjects such as fly patterns, fly selection, winter steelhead fishing, fishing tactics and habitat restoration projects. Meetings are open to the public. For times and locations check the website and Facebook at www.facebook.com/SunriverAnglers. The Sunriver Anglers are an inclusive and volunteer-led organization. The Sunriver Anglers Club invites full or part time area residents and visitors with an interest in fishing and conservation to join the organization at www.sunriveranglers.org

amed River of the Falls (Riviere des Chutes) by early French fur traders, the Deschutes River is a major part of the Central Oregon landscape and lifestyle. Along with providing a beautiful local landmark and countless recreational opportunities, the river contributes significantly to the local economy by providing irrigation water for agriculture. It flows north from Little Lava Lake in the Cascade Mountains all the way to the mighty Columbia River. Nothing’s more inviting on a scorching summer day than a lazy float down the river. Start at Sunriver Resort’s Marina on a canoe, kayak or raft for a two-hour, six-mile float north on the Deschutes to just above Benham Falls

If lake paddling is more your style, contact Wanderlust Tours for their interpreted, guided canoe and kayak tours of the spectacular Cascade lakes. Day, evening and moonlight tours are available. The Paulina Plunge downhill mountain bike ride and waterfall tour is a favorite of locals and visitors alike. Participants ride downhill for six miles on smooth forest trails, stopping at various points to descend into the Paulina Creek canyon to splash and giggle in natural waterslides and plunge pools. Those seeking to cool off on hot summer days can visit the Sunriver Homeowners Aquatic & Recreation Center (SHARC). The SHARC sits on 22 acres and features multiple outdoor pools, water slides, a lazy river, large adult hot tub, year-round tubing hill, outdoor amphitheater, a full basketball court, playground, indoor pool with beach entry, fitness rooms and a café. The SHARC’s indoor facilities are open year round, and the outdoor facilities are open from Memorial Day through Labor Day. Aquatic fitness classes and swim lessons are available. Guests of Sunriver Resort have access to The Cove, a swimming complex with zero entry pool, hot tub, water slide, kid’s discovery area, private cabanas and a poolside café—all with spectacular views of Mt. Bachelor and the Great Meadow. Sunriver Resort renovated its main lodge last year and introduced three new restaurants: Carson’s American Kitchen, Twisted River Tavern and The Living Room. All three offer killer views of the Cascade Mountains and Meadows Golf Course. Photo courtesy of William Wood


Floating the River in Sunriver


By Brooke Snavely, Sunriver Scene newspaper

hen summer heats up, many Sunriver visitors and residents take to the Deschutes River to cool off. On the hottest days, expect to see flotillas of inner tubes, rafts, canoes, kayaks and stand up paddleboards. The Deschutes River in the Sunriver area runs wide and gentle through gorgeous mountain scenery, with good wildlife viewing opportunities. This part of the river is rated Class 1 moving water with riffles, minor waves and few or no obstructions. As inviting as it looks, the river’s current is deceptively strong, and the water is much colder than most people expect. The Deschutes River is spring fed and water temperatures rarely exceed 60 degrees. A quick dunk in the river feels good for a few moments on the hottest days, but hypothermia is a real concern for anyone unable to get out of the water. Life vests, appropriate clothing, food and water, knowing in advance the distances and float times and safe boating practices are important to keep the focus on fun. Popular floats between publicly accessible launch and takeout points in the Sunriver area include: •Big River (River Mile 199.2) to Harper Bridge (RM 191.7). Distance 7.5 miles. Float time: 3-5 hours depending on wind direction and paddle effort. Note: access at Harper Bridge is on the south side of the bridge next to the golf course. •Harper Bridge (RM 191.7) to Besson Day Use Area (RM 189.9). Distance: 1.8 miles. Float time: 45 minutes. Note: Access at Harper Bridge is on the south side of the bridge next to the golf course. •Harper Bridge (RM 191.7) to Sunriver Resort’s Canoe Takeout (RM 183.1). Distance: 8.6 miles. Float time: 4-6 hours depending on

wind direction and paddle effort. Note: Access at Harper Bridge is on the south side of the bridge next to the golf course. •Besson Day Use Area (RM 189.9) to Sunriver Resort’s Canoe Takeout (RM 188.2). Distance: 6.8 miles. Float time: 2-4 hours depending on wind direction and paddle effort. •Besson Day Use Area (RM 189.9) to Benham Falls Day Use Area at River Mile 182.0. Distance: 7.9 miles. Float time: 3-4 hours depending on wind direction and paddle effort. Sunriver Resort operates a commercial marina at River Mile 188.2 off River Road. The general public and guests of the Resort must rent boats from the marina to utilize this facility. Boat rental fees include a shuttle ride back from the Canoe Takeout at River Mile 182.0. Information: 541-593- 3492 or www.sunriver-resort.com/activities/sunriver-resort-marina Sunriver Owners Association opened a private launch and parking area in 2015 at River Mile 188.2. Access to this facility is restricted to Sunriver homeowners and their guests. Only those with updated Member Preference and Recreation Plus access cards issued by the homeowner’s association will be able to utilize this facility. Information: 541-585-3147, www.sunriverstyle. com/fun-on-the-river.html Several shops in The Village at Sunriver and the Sunriver Business Park rent watercraft, life vests and other necessary items. The Sunriver Marina, Good2Go and Tumalo Creek Kayak & Canoe offer drop-off and pick up service and a variety of classes. State law requires life vests for all watercraft occupants, whether you are in a float tube, kayak, canoe or boat.

he Sunriver area is well-known for its plethora of outdoor activities and the hardy adrenalineseeking white-water kayakers and mountain bikers who visit the area won’t be disappointed. However, for a more leisurely recreation there are plenty of scenic hiking trails to explore at all levels of difficulty with no extreme sports pedigree required. Sunriver provides convenient access to the Cascade Lakes National Scenic Byway. Starting in Sunriver and ending in Bend, the scenic drive offers beautiful scenery along the way as it circles Mt. Bachelor. There are several lakes along the way where hikers can stop and enjoy a picnic lunch or take a walk around the lake. Serious hikers can leave their cars at trailheads along the highway and enjoy a more rugged backcountry experience in the nearby Three Sisters Wilderness Area. If you are hiking in the Wilderness, you will need to fill out a free Wilderness permit before entry and remember group sizes are limited to 12 people. The Cascades Lakes highway( or Cascade Lakes Scenic Byway) is closed during the winter and usually does not open until Memorial Day weekend. The Deschutes River Trail can be accessed from the north end of Sunriver, and winds along the banks of the river all the way to Bend. Take a waterfall tour as you hike north, passing Benham, Dillon and Lava Island falls along the way. The Newberry National Volcanic Monument in the Deschutes National Forest is a unique area and contains some of the greatest diversity of geologic features in the world. Visitors from Sunriver can walk the 5.5 mile Sun-Lava paved path. Visitors can enjoy interpretive talks at Lava Lands before a short hike up Lava Butte. The Monument offers over 60 trails ready to be explored from short interpretive walks to the 21-mile Crater Rim trail and provides an amazing way to spend the day and experience one of Central Oregon’s volcanoes.

f you and your family want a unique experience, or just a place to cool off on a hot summer day, be sure to set aside an afternoon to explore the Lava River Cave near Sunriver. An ancient lava tunnel about a mile long and up to 50 feet wide, the Lava River Cave has three ecosystems: the warm, dry climate just outside the entrance, the warm, moist microclimate at the entrance, and the cool, moist, dark environment inside the cave itself. The cave temperature is a constant 42 degrees and is open seasonally, so check with the Lava Lands Visitors Center to find out the latest schedule. Visitors may take self-guided tours, and lantern rentals are available for $5 until 4pm. www.fs.fed.us/r6/centraloregon/ newberrynvm/dayuse 541-593-2421

Directions from Sunriver


ake Forest Service Road #40 (South Century Drive, then Spring River Road) headed west out of Sunriver, then turn right onto Road #46 (Cascade Lakes Scenic Byway) headed north.

Take in all the beautiful scenery as you pass access points to Lava Lake, Hosmer Lake, Elk Lake, Sparks Lake,




Devils Lake and Todd Lake, finally approaching Mt. Bachelor as you complete the loop and take Road #45 south back towards Sunriver. In the wintertime, the Byway is closed just south of Davis Lake to Mt. Bachelor but you can access the portion from Mt. Bachelor to Bend via Road #45 from Sunriver.


Scenic Byway


Road cyclists love the scenic Cascade Lake Byway.

unriver is conveniently located near what is arguably one of the most beautiful drives in the entire Northwest: the Cascade Lakes Scenic Byway.

True to its name, the byway makes a loop around Mt. Bachelor and passes several mountain lakes along the way, each with its own breathtaking view of the Cascade Mountains. The peaks of Mt. Bachelor, Broken Top and the Three Sisters will seem close enough to touch as you take a relaxing stroll around the perimeter of Todd Lake or any of the other crystal-clear, pristine alpine lakes that dot the unforgettable landscape. Many of these lakes are accessible by car only in the summer months, but there’s still fun to be had at the Sno-Parks along the sides of the road. Photo courtesy of AA Sports

Newberry National Volcanic Monument


ore than a year’s worth of activities and events celebrating the 25th anniversary of the establishment of the Newberry National Volcanic Monument will conclude July 4, 2016 in La Pine during the city’s annual Frontier Days celebration. Planned events include a celebration of the U.S. Postal Service’s first issue of Newberry, the Monument’s official publication and a special fireworks show in La Pine the night of July 4. Newberry Volcano is the largest volcano in the Cascade Range, roughly the size of Rhode Island. It features extraordinary geologic formations such as the Lava Cast Forest, the mile-long Lava River Cave, the mind-boggling 17-mile wide Newberry Caldera which contains two lakes, Oregon’s youngest lava flow, Paulina Falls which spills 80 feet over the caldera’s rim and Paulina Peak (7,985 feet). Newberry last erupted about 1,300 years ago, and present-day hot springs and geologically young lava flows indicate that it could reawaken at any time. Because of its proximity to Sunriver, Bend and La Pine, U.S. Geological Survey scientists closely monitor the volcano for signs of unrest. From the native communities who first crossed this land to the early European and American explorers, to casual visitors today, people have marveled at this rugged landscape for thousand of years. Lava Lands Visitor Center is the interpretive hub of Newberry National Volcanic Monument. Friendly rangers help orient visitors to the Monument using a 3D topographic map and a state of the art interpretive exhibit on area geologic and cultural history. The Visitors Center offers daily films, easy hikes on the Trail of the Molten Lands and the Trail of the Whispering Pines, picnics under the pines, live ranger interpretive talks and spectacular views from the top of Lava Butte, which is also the site of an active fire lookout tower. 541-383-5530 stacey.cochran@discovernw.org

Tennis & Pickleball


erennially listed as one of the world’s top tennis destinations by www.tennisresortsonline.com, Sunriver added a Tennis Magazine top 50 ranking to its tennis trophy case in 2012. Sunriver’s 24 outdoor tennis courts, revitalized programs and numerous tournaments are quickly gaining popularity for the Sunriver community as Central Oregon’s true Tennis Town. Recently, the Sunriver Owner’s Association (SROA) has committed hundreds of thousands of dollars to rebuild many of its existing courts, and have proved to be quite a draw for state and national tournaments. Most of the activity is focused at the North Courts next to the Woodlands Golf Course. Smaller court complexes nestled within the pines dot the community, creating a private court experience. Tennis court reservations can be made at 541-593-5707. Court fees are $15 per court per 1.5 hours of playing time (free to SROA recreation pass holders). Sunriver tennis programs are coordinated by a certified tennis pro and a seasoned staff June through mid-September. The tennis offshoot, known as pickleball, has also taken root. The game is a combination of ping pong and badminton. In the last two years two tennis courts at Fort Rock Park were converted to six pickleball courts. Pickleball paddles and instruction are available at Tennis Hill at Fort Rock Park. If you are a guest of Sunriver Resort, you have four additional outdoor and three indoor tennis courts available for use. www.sunrivertennis.com

Pedal the Pathways of Sunriver


unriver is Oregon’s original bike friendly vacation spot and boasts more than 33 miles of paved pathways. Whether you’re looking for an adventurous mountain bike ride or a tranquil, lazy loop through the pine along a paved trail on your way to the store, Sunriver has you covered. Many rental homes come equipped with bikes, but if they aren’t included and you don’t bring your own, there are bike rental shops where you can rent every conceivable kind of bicycle and accessory including toddler trailers, tandem and recumbent bikes. The pathways curve around golf course, under roads, through pine forest, along the Deschutes River and through Sunriver’s Great Meadow. Pathway maps, including pathway rules, are available at local bike shops and from kiosks along the pathways and roads, and are clearly marked on Sunriver maps. If you think you are lost, just travel a little farther, and you’ll soon come to a kiosk or intersection where signs will point the way. Limitless mountain bike riding awaits you in the surrounding national forest lands, including a challenging single-track trail to Benham Fall accessed off Circle 7. Road cyclists love to ride the nearby Cascade Lakes Highway for its scenery, challenging hill climbs and welcome descents. A 5.5 mile multi-use paved pathway connecting Sunriver to the Lava Lands Visitor Center opened in 2014. It replaces what used to be a dusty logging road that was a slog to ride. The new pathway is ten feet wide with nice views, gradual curves and slopes and is a joy to navigate. Riding a bike or walking through the majestic ponderosa pines extends a sense of freedom from not having to drive to reach special places.


From Lava Lands Visitor Center, the Sun-Lava pathway runs southwest, essentially parallel to Forest Road 9702 (Benham Falls Road), gradually downhill to the Benham Falls East Day Use Area on the bank of the Deschutes River. From here, pedestrians and cyclists can cross the river on a wood bridge and proceed downstream about quarter mile to spectacular Benham Falls. A well-marked junction to Sunriver is a few hundred yards east of Benham East Day Use area. The Sun Lava pathway features mileage markers and intersection signage to help users navigate to their intended destination. It would be difficult to get lost on this pathway as it is the only paved surface for miles around. Just about all uses—hiking, biking, skating, skateboards and wheelchairs—are permitted on the new Sun-Lava pathway. The pathway is not plowed in winter, offering itself as a delightful and well-marked cross-country ski trail. Please observe signage at the south end of the pathway entering Sunriver where different rules (no rollerskates or skateboards in Sunriver due to higher volumes of traffic) apply. The Sun Lava pathway constitutes a major upgrade to what was one of the roughest sections of the Deschutes River Trail connecting Sunriver to Bend. The 13.8-mile ride from Sunriver to Bend is best suited for adventurous mountain bike riders. Some people make round trips, with pit stops at brewpubs on both ends. Single-track mountain bike trails still exist between Sunriver and Lava Lands for those seeking off-pavement adventure, including the Black Rock Trail and Trail 2.1. Paulina Plunge, a downhill waterfall mountain bike tour a few miles south of Sunriver, will take you to six waterfalls and two natural waterslides while coasting six miles down a smooth forest trail.

Mt. Bachelor Ski Resort


t. Bachelor, the crown jewel of Central Oregon’s winter sports mecca, is one of the top 10 largest ski resorts in the United States. Open for skiing and snowboarding from November through May, the 9,065 foot mountain has the highest skiable elevation in all of Oregon and Washington and offers 3,683 acres of terrain. Ten chairlifts, including seven high speed quads serve a varied mix of 88 runs with about 15 percent of the terrain rated as easier, 25 percent more difficult, 35 percent most difficult and 25 percent extreme. For the more adventurous skiers and snowboarders, five different terrain parks offer jumps, rails, boxes, jibs and other features for all ability levels. An in-ground half pipe is typically open from February through May. In the base area, ski and snowboard equipment rentals are available at the mountain and Gravity Sports at Mt. Bachelor offers everything you might need to hit the slopes. If you’d like to try a mountain adventure of a different sort, Mt. Bachelor’s Snowblast Tubing Park is popular with groups and

families while the Nordic Center offers the longest groomed Nordic ski season in North America. Cross-country skiers can explore more than a dozen groomed trails covering over 30 miles. In the Sunrise base area, take a scenic ride behind an Iditarod sled dog team with the Oregon Trail of Dreams. Stay snug and warm in the sled while the team and a professional musher take you on an exciting adventure through the Deschutes National Forest. The standard trip lasts about an hour, including orientation and an option to help take care of the dogs after the ride. A recently-approved master development plan will bring a large list of changes and improvements to the mountain. During the next 10 years, planned improvements include a new high speed quad lift on the eastern side of the mountain, replacement of the Rainbow and Sunrise lifts, a new lodge and expanded parking in the Sunrise area and expanded kids and family areas on the mountain. Improvements began in the summer of 2013 and are already transforming the resort. www.mtbachelor.com, 800-829-2442

Whether it’s your first time on skis, or you have been shredding the pow for years, Mt. Bachelor has terrain for everybody in the family..

Commissioned by Tom O’Shea, managing director, it hangs on the main fireplace of the Sunriver Lodge Living Room. Setziol-Phillips’ design features four vertical carved panels of branching aspens with horizontal woven panels depicting the Central Oregon seasonal landscape. Inspired by the sculpture, the new quarterly exhibition schedule suggests seasonal themes of Winter (December-February), Spring (March–May), Summer (June–August), Fall (September– November.)The Spring Fine Art Exhibition, April 1 – May 30 features local artists Mary Medrano, Susan Busik and others. Attracted by avian beauty, Medrano exhibits expressionistic bird portraits. In brightly colored acrylic and interpretive design, she borrows recognizable characteristics of birds but generally paints imagined creatures telling visual stories. Busik relies on her background experience in the vividly hued acrylic paintings of birds, animals and humans. Interpreted through use of Mexican folk art imagery, she expresses her love of intricate design and pays homage to her Mexican heritage. Featured in the summer exhibition period, June 6 – August 26, is the High Desert Art League of Central Oregon with art by members Cindy Briggs, Helen Brown, David Kinker, Jacqueline Newbold, Vivian Olsen, Janice Rhodes, Barbara Slater and Joren Traveller. With a wide range of mediums and imagery, the members depict the pleasures of the season. The exhibition also marks the beginning of the 21st year of exhibitions curated by Turner for Sunriver Resort. The Sunriver Resort Lodge is open all hours.Contact Billye Turner at 503-780-2828 or billyeturner@bendnet.com for additional information.

High Desert Museum A Cultural Icon


ere are just three of the many reasons the High Desert Museum has been voted the #1 attraction in Bend on Tripadvisor: fascinating wildlife, inspiring exhibits and engaging living history characters. As one recent reviewer said, “Excellent! We absolutely love this place. Especially in the summer when the old mill village is running. We love going to the birds of prey demonstrations and special events. We love the otters and the porcupines, too. Excellent activity for kids and adults!” The Museum has something for everyone. Just minutes up the highway from Sunriver, the High Desert Museum is a cultural gem nestled on 135 wooded acres. Its 100,000 square feet of stone, wood and glass exhibit space houses five species of owls, falcons, hawks, eagles, porcupines, otters and even a bobcat. The Desertarium is home to desert tortoises and a wide variety of reptiles and amphibians. Walk outside and cross the creek to a meandering path where you’ll step back to the year 1904 at the Miller Family Ranch, an authentic turn of the (last) century homestead and sawmill. You’ll likely encounter Mrs. Miller, a ranch wife who is stuck in 1904. Your kids will be surprised when she asks them to help with ranch chores like watering her garden! If she’s feeling playful, she might teach them the game of graces. But watch out for Doc, who may try to sell them a bottle of snake oil. During the summer months, a pair of donkeys and two wild mustangs live on the ranch and are exercised in the willow corral.

During the summer you won’t want to miss Raptors of the Desert Sky, an unforgettable flight program set in a forested area on the Museum’s property. Hawks, eagles and owls soar and swoop through the audience. Be sure to visit the two river otters and watch them frolic in their newlyrenovated habitat, complete with a slide. Kids can’t get enough of these playful characters. In the Museum’s permanent exhibits, you can see what frontier life was like and learn about Native American culture and history. There are changing exhibits as well on a broad range of subjects ranging from art created through the Works Progress Administration during the Great Depression to weather to smokejumpers and sage grouse. The Museum hosts some wonderful programs and fun-filled special events throughout the year. Check the website for listings. The High Desert Museum is a hands-on, immersive experience. You and your family will be having so much fun, you won’t even realize how much you’re learning. While at the Museum, you’re welcome to enjoy lunch or a snack at Rimrock Café and to pick up some great gifts, thoughtful souvenirs, Native American jewelry or educational toys at Silver Sage Trading in the Museum store. Summer hours: 9am - 5pm daily May 1 – October 31. Adults $15, seniors $12, kids $9 children four and under, free. Winter hours: 10am to 4pm daily November 1 – April 30. Adults $12, seniors $10, kids $7 children four and under, free. www.highdesertmuseum.org 541-382-4754

Sunriver Traditions

he Christmas season is always a magical time of year, but in Sunriver a combination of snow, gingerbread houses and sleigh rides bring to mind a picture-perfect holiday fit for a Frank Capra movie. At Sunriver Resort, you and your children can visit Santa’s Workshop for your chance to make homemade crafts, just like one of Santa’s elves. Or perhaps you’d rather experience a sugarplum story time, ornament workshop or magic show. There will also be plenty of concerts with holiday music to get you into the Christmas spirit. To kick off the season, enjoy the Grand Illumination festivities the day after Thanksgiving, which include unique light displays, children’s crafts, a small parade and more! Or treat yourself to a sleigh ride on an old-fashioned, horse-drawn sleigh. And once the Christmas magic is over, celebrate the New Year with a full slate of activities to ring out the old and bring in the new. Holiday Dining Events Relax and let Sunriver Resort do the cooking at one of several holiday dining events including Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year’s buffets, as well as Breakfast with Santa. Gingerbread Junction The largest collection of gingerbread houses in the Northwest are on display in the Sunriver Lodge. Families can see the extravagantly decorated houses, and proceeds go to a local charity. Santa’s Workshop Step into the magical world of Santa’s Workshop and create your own crafts. Elf Tuck-Ins Imagine the light in your children’s eyes when they receive a special bedtime story from one of Santa’s elves. Guests of Sunriver Resort can request one of the resort’s elves to stop by for an Elf Tuck-In to read a magical story and bid the children goodnight. www.sunriver-resort.com/traditions

A full list of Sunriver’s many clubs, groups and organizations can be found at www. sunriverowners.org. Everyone is aware of Sunriver Resort. What they might not be aware of is how much the resort has improved their facilities in recent years. Last year they remodeled their pool, The Cove, exclusively for their guests and it has significantly reduced congestion at SHARC during the busy summer months. They have upgraded their signature main lodge, marina and stables. If you haven’t been here in a while, you probably won’t recognize The Village at Sunriver. The owners have done an amazing job of rebuilding and upgrading the mall. And we homeowners, through our Sunriver Homeowners Association, have done our part as well. Besides building SHARC—which provides year round aquatics, an events center and enhanced recreation amenities—a few years ago we approved funding the replacement of all our roads and bike paths, and are well on our way to completing this task. In spite of these recent investments, Sunriver Owners Association dues remain just a little over $100 per month. Sunriver has, by far, the lowest HOA dues of any resort in the region. So if you are thinking about relocating or retiring to Central Oregon, I would remind you that Sunriver has the Deschutes River running alongside it, we have our own local police and fire departments, our own K-8 grade school, our own library, our own mall with markets, stores and restaurants, and most importantly, a real community of permanent residents who are anxious to welcome you. Should Sunriver life appeal to you, I would invite you to visit the Sunriver Owners Association office on Abbot Drive or drop by the Sunriver Chamber of Commerce in Mall Two to obtain additional information about moving here.

It’s a Dog’s Life


ere in Sunriver, we understand that your pets are a part of your family. If you are the type of traveler who would not dream of leaving your canine companion at home, then Sunriver is your poochperfect playground. With 33-plus miles of pathways, five miles of riverbank and a national forest next door, your dog will never run out of places to sniff and explore... and the dog walker in the family will never have to take the same path twice. Enjoy the serenity of the outdoors and allow the magic of the forest to stimulate all human and canine senses. A particularly scenic area for walking is along the Deschutes River and great for wildlife viewing. Keep your eyes peeled for owl, osprey, otter, elk and deer. Dogs are Welcome Here Whether you are staying in a vacation rental or the resort, you will be able to find many dog-friendly accommodations. Bennington Properties, Discover Sunriver, Mountain Resort Properties, Sunray Vacation Rentals, Sunriver Resort, Sunset Lodging in Sunriver and Village Properties all feature wonderful housing options for you and your canine companion. Bennington Properties offers a complimentary dog wash (April through October) and an off leash recreation park open to all guests and owners in Sunriver. In the summer, Bennington hosts a weekly Yappy Hour on Thursdays for pooches to socialize while their humans mingle and enjoy refreshments. Sunriver Village offers al fresco dining opportunities as well as many dog-friendly shops and Sunriver Sports rents bike trailers to give your furry family member a fun ride. If you didn’t bring a pet essential, such as high quality canned or dry food, or even if you just want a new toy, the Sunriver Country Store IGA in the Village and the ACE Hardware in the Sunriver Business Park will surely have what you need. Dogs are allowed off-leash on pathways and at Fort Rock Park as long as they mind their manners and are under effective voice control of their humans. Please remember to carry a leash at all times and clean up after your pet, even in the forest. There are numerous clean up/ disposal stations along the pathways and at Fort Rock park for your convenience. For those who are ready to explore the Cascade Lakes Scenic Byway, many of the lakes provide dogs with a welcome relief from the summer heat. Elk Lake is a wonderful place for dogs


to play in the water and the lodge is pet-friendly as well. For a quieter experience and fewer crowds, try Little Lava Lake. Sparks Lake is a great choice and the large Crane Prairie and Wickiup Reservoirs are inviting to dogs of all shapes and sizes. Floating on the Deschutes River A popular activity in Sunriver is a leisurely float down the Deschutes River. Canoes, kayaks and rafts are available for rent at the Sunriver Marina, from Good2Go or Four Seasons Recreational Outfitters in the Sunriver Village. You can begin your float at Harper’s Bridge. Float down the Deschutes River until you reach a pull out site where you can be picked up and driven back to your car. Good2Go offers guided float tours. Dogs are always welcome to enjoy the ride with their humans and test their sea legs. Winter Activities with Your dog Edison Sno-Park and Wanoga snow park are two family and dog-friendly activity areas where your canine companion can safely enjoy exploring the snow with you. These snow parks offer a range of groomed and natural areas for snowshoeing and cross country skiing options for all abilities. Have you ever tried skijoring? It feels like cross country skiing with superpowers. Skijoring, or cross country skiing while being pulled by a dog, makes every glide a little longer and every effort a little easier. It’s great fun for those who already enjoy cross country skiing and it’s a wonderful way to commune with your four legged friend in the beautiful winter environment. So plan your visit to Sunriver with Fido included and get ready to create some memories for every member of your family. When it comes to dog-friendly fun, we aim to please all year long.

Discover the difference between pet-friendly and DOG LOVING®!

unriver Women’s Club (SRWC) has been active in the community since 1972. Over 220 members from Sunriver proper and the surrounding communities come together for fellowship, recreation and charitable and fund-raising activities. No matter the time of year there are things to do. In summer it’s hiking and bike riding; winter it’s anything to do with snow-like sledding and bonfires. There are bag lunches with friends, a dinner club, a knitting group and monthly luncheons with interesting speakers. The Community Picnic at Mary McCallum Park in July is not to be missed. SRWC has a long history of supporting nonprofit organizations in the South Deschutes County. In the past year, $30,000 in grants were awarded to 16 nonprofits providing basic needs of food, clothing, shelter and education for children and families. The highly successful Sunriver Art Faire in August and the Winter Gala in December, plus smaller events throughout the year, raise funds to make these grants possible. sunriverwomensclub@gmail.com

Rotary Club of Sunriver


roviding “Service above Self” to Sunriver, La Pine and other South Deschutes communities is the main goal of the Rotary Club of Sunriver. The Club, which celebrated two decades of service in 2015, has raised more than $500,000 for local non-profits. It is one of 34,000 Rotary clubs around the world with 1.2 million members. The local Sunriver Club is part of Rotary International, which provides service to others, promotes integrity and advances world understanding, goodwill and peace through its fellowship of business, professional and community leaders. Rotary clubs are open to people of all cultures and ethnicities and are secular and apolitical. You can join the local Sunriver Club to enjoy fellowship and share your vocation, avocation, hobby or interest. By participating in international activities (such as the Club’s Nepal Project), you become part of a global network of professionals seeking world peace and understanding. If you are interested in giving back to your community, the Sunriver Club would love to have you as a member. You do not have to live in Sunriver. Many Sunriver Rotarians live in Bend, La Pine and other communities. Polio Plus is Rotary’s flagship program. Along with the World Health Organization, UNICEF and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control, Rotary is spear-heading partner in the Global Polio Eradication Initiative. Rotary’s programs for students and youth change the lives of those who participate. Through these programs young people can earn scholarships, learn leadership skills and engage in cultural exchanges. www.sunriverrotary.org


re you goal oriented? Assign yourself or your entire family a mission one day to really discover Sunriver. You can learn more than you ever wanted to know about Sunriver by visiting each of the 20 interpretive trail signs on the pathways. The Sunriver Anglers Club created the signs to showcase Sunriver’s geology, history, ecology, flora and fauna. The majority of the interpretive signs are on the loop around the Great Meadow. All are marked on the community maps found in roadside and pathway kiosks. Whether on foot, bike or horse, it’s worth a stop when you come upon these learning opportunities.

Buying Your Sunriver Home

Why Choose Sunriver?


f you are looking for a serene environment surrounded by sprawling acres of natural landscapes and picturesque vistas, Sunriver might be the perfect location for you. Sunriver has about 4,200 home sites nestled among the trees, bike paths and numerous roundabouts that make driving around the resort an interesting experience. About a quarter of residents choose to live in Sunriver year-around, with the rest being vacation homes. The Sunriver real estate market has proven to be strong and steady for several decades and is a great place for retiring or investing in vacation rentals. The area offers a wide variety of single-family homes, condominiums, cabins and cottages in a quiet resort setting. Although Sunriver is unincorporated, it is self-governed and has all of the necessary services including a fire station, police department, post office, medical facilities and more. The Sunriver real estate agents and title companies share a love of Central Oregon and an understanding of their clients and the community with an unrivaled local experience and expertise that make home buying and selling a smooth and successful process. From an economic standpoint, according to Economic Development of Central Oregon (EDCO), the region boasts dynamic industry clusters across the tri-county area, including craft brewing, biotech, technology and recreation.

A healthy mix of established companies and up and coming entrepreneurs has created a connected, energized business community that is ambitious and producing results. With an influx of capital and new ideas, solid infrastructure, the expansion of higher education and a coordinated effort by EDCO and Central Oregon cities and counties to support economic development, the region is making yet another leap forward. The workforce is skilled, educated and growing, and the migration of corporate transplants from the nation’s biggest cities is bolstering the already impressive bench strength in a diverse array of professional disciplines. People are hungry to move here and even more determined to stay. As an employer, this means easier recruitment and better retention. With the expansion of the Oregon State University Cascades campus, Central Oregon Community College’s robust programs and numerous other workforce training initiatives, employees have a myriad of avenues for ongoing professional development. Central Oregon has some of the lowest operating costs in the Pacific Northwest, including very affordable industrial land costs, available build-to-suit commercial real estate, tax abatement, enterprise zones and fast track permitting. And the region’s cities are eager to work with businesses considering the region, with creative solutions tailored to each company’s unique needs.

By Ginny Kansas-Meszaros, Gibson Reality hen looking for a vacation destination property, areas to retire, live, work and play or areas that offer the highest quality of life and maximize your real estate investment, it’s all about location, location and location! Sunriver and the surrounding neighborhoods share the 97707 zip code fit the bill. Nowhere else can you ski Mt. Bachelor, golf, fish/kayak/boat/paddleboard, hike and bike without crowds, all in one day! Sunriver is 20 minutes from Bend and its trails, shopping, restaurants and nightlife but has sparkle of its own. Sunriver has more privacy, space to explore and relax with resort amenities just a bike ride away over its 30 miles of paved bike paths in its 11 inter-connected villages. Sunriver itself is surrounded by 5,500 acres of trees and meadows of high desert country, surrounded on three sides by the Deschutes National Forest and bordered by the sparkling Deschutes River. In a typical day, you can meander the paved trails overlooking the Deschutes River with stunning views of Mt. Bachelor or Paulina


Range, stop to check out the Nature Center, shop at The Village Sunriver or splash, snack and sun yourself at the SHARC by day and the constellations by night in the Oregon Observatory, cozy up to the fireplace at Brewed Awakenings for a Chai Latte in the morning, or in early evening at the Sunriver Resort or Marcello’s Restaurant in The Sunriver Village for a fine meal/wine pairing. Since its inception in 1967 by developer John Gray, the continual respect and concern for the environment has made Sunriver naturally different. Residents in the community enjoy the simple pleasures of life and the basic principles of happiness: enjoying nature and wildlife, fun gatherings and memorable meals, traditions and Americana festivals The Sunriver area is not a retirement community or a hotel to house vacation rental guests or visitors but is a selfsustaining and tight-knit residential, resort and business community for all generations of residents, their families, neighbors and guests. Those who live full time in Sunriver are part of a relatively small community that enjoys the peace and changing seasons throughout the year. Parents feel safe to let their children bike freely throughout the area and residents from all neighborhoods gather together for the monthly Sunriver Area Community Potlucks that are held at SHARC. Since 2010, more than $50 million has been invested back into the community by the area’s major players, the SROA’s Sunriver Homeowners Aquatic and Recreational Center (SHARC), the renovations at the Sunriver Resort, and the major improvements at the Village at Sunriver. Sunriver’s newest recreational community, Caldera Springs, has presented a proposal to develop over 400 new home sites. The Sunriver Nature Center and Oregon Observatory has begun a capital funding program to expand and remodel their facilities in the next couple of years Sunriver provides homeowners with stable property values. Even in the last economic downturn, home prices in Sunriver did not decrease significantly. While Sunriver contains numerous homes valued well over $1,000,000, there are plenty of affordable homes throughout the greater Sunriver area. In addition, the area offers numerous undeveloped home sites that are available for you to build the home of your dreams.

elcome to Sunriver. Everyone here hopes you have a great time and want to come back with your family and friends again and again. At some point, you may begin thinking about buying a home here so that you have a base from which to enjoy Sunriver at your convenience. You are not alone. Everyone who owns a home in Sunriver was a visitor first and went through much of the same, “wouldn’t it be great to have a home here?” thought process.

Sunriver has unique environmental conditions that heighten some elements of home maintenance. At 4,200 feet above sea level and located on the fringe of Oregon’s High Desert, the dry air, intense sunlight, warm summers and cold winters are tough on homes. Plan on more painting or staining in Sunriver than ever before. Use high quality paints and stains to make the job last longer. Those wonderful hot summer days spent frolicking in the pool or on the river, followed by blissfully cool nights when everyone sleeps great, mean something entirely else to buildings. Those daily 40 plus degree temperature variations result in expansion and contraction of roofs, siding materials and decks. Use only the highest quality building materials and inspect decks and exterior staircases annually for stability. Fire-resistant roofing materials are required and help protect homes from drifting embers. Sunriver receives an average of five feet a snow a year and some winters a lot more, which is great for skiing and snowball fights, but another environmental extreme Sunriver homes endure. Roofs in Sunriver are built to support at least 50 pounds, per square inch of weight. That’s roughly four feet of dry snow, two feet of packed snow or four inches of ice. In heavy snowfall winters, it may be necessary to remove snow from roofs to prevent ice dams which can allow water to seep through ceilings and walls. Winter temperatures in Sunriver regularly drop below freezing and occasionally below zero during cold snaps.

During cold months, you want to be certain your home heating system is functioning and keeping pipes from freezing. If you can’t do it yourself, it’s a good idea to have someone inspect your Sunriver home in winter to ensure the heat is on and pipes aren’t leaking.




Sunriver has significant freezethaw cycles that cause cracks to form in driveway and walkway surfaces. Climate-appropriate construction techniques and seal coating helps prolong the life of these items. Having a home in the woods forces everyone to think about forest fires and hazard trees. The homeowner association has an extensive ladder fuels reduction program that reduces fire danger and improves forest health in the commonly owned forest areas of Sunriver. Homeowners are required to reduce fire danger by thinning trees and removing noxious weeds on their individual properties. Many Sunriver homeowners turn to contractors to help with some or all of the above described maintenance projects. The Sunriver Owners Association (SROA) maintains a list of hundreds of registered contractors who know the unique rules in Sunriver that regulate hours and days of outdoor construction activity.

big part of what makes Sunriver so special is the Deschutes River. As the center of much of Sunriver’s recreation and unique lifestyle, protecting the waters and watershed is an important job.

Three nonprofit organizations work together as the stewards of the Upper Deschutes River basin, helping to protect and maintain this important resource: the Upper Deschutes River Coalition (UDRC), Deschutes River Conservancy (DRC) and Upper Deschutes Watershed Council (UDWC). The mission of the UDRC is to protect the Upper Deschutes River communities by restoring and sustaining healthy fire-resistant forests, pure and abundant river flows and wildlife habitat.

The mission of DRC is to protect local rivers and streams for future generations by resorting stream flow and improving water quality. The URC accomplishes its mission by working corroboratively with water rights holders, irrigation districts, agencies and other nonprofits to develop strategies and implement projects that meet in stream flow targets while addressing issues of broader watershed health. To achieve this, the DRC uses four programs to improve water stream flows: leasing, transfers, conservation and water management planning. The UDWC seeks to protect and restore the two million acre Upper Deschutes River watershed through collaborative projects in habitat restoration, watershed education and long term monitoring. To achieve their mission, the UDWC, with local support from landowners, ranchers, environmental interests, local citizens and government agencies, lead cooperative grass-roots efforts to improve watershed conditions.
