Welcome to Sunriver

Photo courtesy of Sunriver Resort


hat makes Sunriver such a magical place to visit and live? The answers to this question are as varied as the many things to do, see and explore here in Sunriver. The Sunriver Area Chamber of Commerce has tried to capture the special Sunriver experience in this magazine. We know, however, that you can only truly get to know our community by coming here. Take the weather, for instance. Sunriver enjoys Central Oregon’s high desert climate with about 300 days a year of sunshine. But what makes Sunriver so comfortable are the warm summer days followed by the cool evenings and nights — naturally air conditioning your home by just opening your windows!



The winter months are special as well as the snow provides a beautiful white blanket over the trees and ground, providing for Nordic skiing and snowshoeing from your front door. That same dry, eastern Oregon mountain snowfall followed soon by sunshine makes for a “Blue Bird” day of skiing at nearby Mt. Bachelor. As you’ll discover in this magazine, the original resort planners knew early on that Sunriver’s climate and natural setting provided the ideal opportunity to create one of the first developments to integrate environmental engineering and design into a resort community. They recognized that nature and wildlife in Sunriver are just as important as everyday comforts.

Visitors will find, for instance, that despite the more than 4,000 homes located here, it’s very dark in Sunriver at night. That’s by design, so that from your deck or balcony, or through a telescope at the Sunriver Nature Center & Observatory, the stars fill the night sky. During the day, Sunriver is alive with outdoor activities, recreation and sports that again go hand-in-hand with our natural setting. Families build memories for a lifetime on bike rides along the more than 34 miles of paved biking and walking paths that wind through trees and meadows throughout the Sunriver community. The Deschutes River, which gracefully flows along Sunriver’s western border, provides floating, fishing and wildlife


viewing opportunities. Bring your camera! Just a short drive away are dozens of Alpine lakes, Lava Lands Visitor Center, the Newberry National Volcanic Monument and miles of trails for hiking and biking. Sunriver also boasts fun-filled humanmade recreational facilities that blend naturally into the Central Oregon high desert. For families, the Sunriver Homeowners Aquatic & Recreation Center (SHARC), located in the center of Sunriver, features indoor and outdoor aquatics, including a variety of pools and water slides. Golfers will be challenged by the world-class courses in Sunriver and surrounding area. Tennis courts are located throughout Sunriver, and the growing sport of pickleball has

dedicated courts at Fort Rock Park. All of this activity naturally leads to a healthy appetite, so Sunriver has everything you’re looking for with a wide selection of dining options. Choose from several restaurants in The Village at Sunriver, which also provides visitors with a host of shopping opportunities, or explore eating options at the Sunriver Resort, Sunriver Business Park and Spring River Plaza. A choice of accommodations in Sunriver is just as wide. Many families choose from hundreds of fully furnished vacation homes for rent, many of which include a garage full of bikes and a hot tub on the deck. Renting multiple homes on the same street for family reunions and other gatherings is also common.

Many condominium, townhome and guestroom rental options are also available from the Sunriver Resort and property management companies. For those considering Sunriver as a permanent home or business location, we recommend doing what many residents have done first — enjoy Sunriver as a visitor or vacation home owner. It won’t be long before you’ve made a decision about moving here. The Sunriver Area Chamber of Commerce can make your vacation or move here that magical experience that so many have had. Please drop by our office located in the Sunriver Business Park at 56825 Venture Lane, Suite 110 or call us 541-593-8149. 2019-20 |

Sunriver’s Traffic Circles

You’ll notice several traffic circles on this street map. Though they take a bit of getting used to, they help the flow of traffic. Some traffic circle etiquette: Yield to drivers in the circle, and use your turn signal only when you’re about to exit.

Where is Circle 8?

In 1978, 2,185 undeveloped acres on Sunriver’s north end were sold to the US Forest Service. This is where Circle 8 would have been located.

Sunriver History

Early aerial photo of the Lodge.

by Tor Hanson


elebrating the half century mark in 2018, the idyllic community of Sunriver is an integral part of Central Oregon’s vibrant economy and home to more than a thousand permanent residents. But it was not always so. It took the courage and determination of a small group of entrepreneurs to turn Sunriver into what it is today. Sunriver is perfectly located at the crossroads of Central Oregon. Trade routes have intersected the area from the time of the first people established presence in Central Oregon and continued for thousands of years. With cartographers in tow, the first white explorers filtered through the area in the early- through mid-1800s. After the U.S. Congress established the Homestead Act in 1862, pioneer families like the Vandeverts, the Shonequests and others started farming the area that would eventually become Sunriver. As the Second World War played out, military planners saw the Central Oregon area as a good stand-in for the European Theater of War. The large meadow, the quick-flowing river, and the expansive forest surrounding the area became training grounds for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers from 1943 through 1944. Camp Abbot saw more than 90,000 citizen soldiers prepare for war in Europe. Shortly after the war ended, Prineville-based Hudspeth Land and Livestock company purchased the surplus Army property to use for cattle ranching. The development of Sunriver can be attributed to California businessman Lee Evans, Portland real estate attorney Donald McCallum, and the founder of Omark Industries, John Gray. California businessman Lee Evans’s involvement in Sunriver came by the way of marrying into the Hudspeth family. After


the company fell into financial straits, Evans received a power of attorney to sell the Sunriver land. According to an interview in The Bulletin in September 1988, Evans said, “the crown jewel of the Hudspeth holdings was what is now Sunriver.” Hudspeth’s evaluation of the property highlighted the sites recreational potential. “Recreational opportunities include hunting, fishing and snow sports. […] Fishing is excellent on the famous Deschutes River. Snow sports are enjoyed at the multimillion-dollar Bachelor Butte Ski Bowl. The highest use of this area would seem to be a resort type subdivision.” After John Hudspeth defaulted on a loan, which was secured by the former Camp Abbot site, Evans purchased the property in 1964. Evans hired Guillermo Lehmann, a Berkeley, California, planner to develop plans for a resort community to be called Castellaras. The plans called for “dense housing development, a network of waterways, and a golf course” — Central Oregon’s version of Venice. An avid outdoorsman, Portland real estate lawyer Don McCallum was familiar with the former Camp Abbot site, having hunted and fished in the area for many years. One of the original investors, and eventually co-owner of Sunriver Properties, he and Evans approached John Gray in 1964. Gray grew up in Monroe, Oregon. After serving in the U.S. Army 82nd Airborne Division during World War II, he became assistant general manager for Oregon Saw Chain Manufacturing Company in 1948. Gray had recently developed Salishan on the Oregon coast. Nearly ten times larger than Salishan, Gray saw the potential for a large-scale development. The developers had grand plans for Sunriver, hoping the

The preliminary plans included a lodge, an 18-hole golf course, shops and a small boat basin. Connecting the community would be a network of pathways for walking, biking and electric carts. When development of Sunriver was announced to the public in late 1965, the officials of Sunriver Properties envisioned a community of 12,000 to 15,000 people. Serendipity would change the scope of the project to what Sunriver is today. Gray’s children were attending summer classes arranged through Oregon Museum of Science and Industries. The teacher, naturalist Jim Anderson and Gray hit it off. Sensing an opportunity to change the trajectory of the development, Anderson rooted for an eco-friendly approach. Anderson was hired as Sunriver’s first naturalist. Gray also hired award-winning landscape architect Robert Royston. Encouraged to take a different approach by Royston and Anderson, the team submitted new master plans for the community in 1965. Development of Sunriver was driven in part by a national phenomenon, the so-called “second home boom,” which called for an alternative to both big city and rural living. In an interview with The Bulletin in March 1966, general manager Allen Grant said, “We will appeal to active retired people, those from the Willamette Valley who want homes in their area to use part of the year, and to out-of-state people who simply want to get away from the smog and crowds.” Development of the community started in earnest in 1968. Fourteen months later, Sunriver Lodge opened to the public in late September 1969. With a $1.5 million price tag, the lodge featured a coffee shop, dining area, conference center, banquet rooms and 77 privately owned condominiums. Included in the project was the restoration of the former Camp Abbot Officers’

Mess, today called the “Great Hall.” In tandem with the construction of the lodge, the developers built the first clusters of cabins and houses in Sunriver. Meadow Village was the first development quickly followed by the Pole Houses and Cluster Cabins. Individuals also began snapping up lots in the resort community. The first homesite was sold on June 28, 1968. By the end of the year there were 113 condos and three homes in Sunriver. The Sunriver project was initially seen as a threat to Bend businesses, who saw the resort community as a potential competitor for local business. To calm frazzled nerves, Gray invited Bend Chamber of Commerce members to a forum at Sunriver in April 1969. The gathering served its purpose. The chamber decided the development held promise for both Sunriver and Bend. In an editorial in The Bulletin the day after the presentation, the newspaper said, “Central Oregon has an important stake in the success of Sunriver. The friendly hand extended by John Gray should assure a continued spirit of mutual respect and cooperation.” True to its name, the community is foremost about nature and recreation. The expanse that is the Great Meadow — where Native Americans once camped, and thousands of years later, soldiers from Camp Abbot trained — now features different kinds of activities. Residents and guests take advantage of the area’s recreational opportunities such as rafting, fishing, hiking, biking, skiing, and snowboarding. Golf enthusiasts can choose from four courses in the area. Add to that a care for nature that started with Gray, Anderson, and Royston and you truly get a feel for what Sunriver is all about. Or in the words of John Gray, “to create a commercial enterprise that blends into the environment without insult.” Tor Hanson is the author of two “Images of America” books — Sunriver and Camp Abbot.

The SHARC That Loves Tourists by Sunriver Owners Association


uring close to two million vacationers, residents and guests through its doors since opening in 2012, visitors to the Sunriver Homeowners Aquatic & Recreation Center (SHARC) 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 warmer summer months to frolic in the oversize outdoor pool, drift in the lazy river, plunge down tube and body slides, dance in the water fountains, sunbathe or watch toddlers safely play in a separate wading pool and sand play area. Thousands of people slide down the winter tubing hill (on select dates between November and February), scramble around the playground, play hoops on the full-size basketball court, play disc golf, test their skills at bocce ball or picnic in the park. Even when the weather turns cold, SHARC’s indoor, multi-

use pool continues to attract owners and visitors. Heated to a relatively toasty 84-85 degrees, the pool’s zero entry features bubbling fountains, spinning water flower and dumping bucket to 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 (which can also be split into two smaller rooms) hosts business meetings, weddings, banquets, seminars, events and fundraisers. Access to SHARC is free to members of Sunriver Owners Association with a valid Member Preference ID, those with SROA Recreation Guest Passes and guests of vacation rental properties enrolled in SROA’s Recreation Plus Program. The general public is welcome via a daily gate fee. • 541-585-5000

Angler’s Dream


Sunriver is home to several experienced fly fishing and guide shops that have the localized knowledge to provide you with an unforgettable fishing experience. The Hook Fly Shop/Cascade Guides & Outfitters, located in The Village and the Sunriver Fly Shop, located in the Sunriver Business Park, have been assisting fly fishers for over 30 years. 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 the fish. Garrison’s Guide Service, who features family friendly pontoon boats, offers guide services for both spin fishing and fly fishing.

entral Oregon is home to over 100 lakes and 450 miles of pristine rivers and streams that are all within an hour’s drive of Sunriver. 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 both Salmon and Steelhead make 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 (caught at Lake Billy Chinook, 60 minutes from Sunriver).

Nature’s Aquatic Adventures Await


iver and lake adventures — all brought to you by Mother Nature — are in abundance in and around Sunriver.

A great place to start is the Sunriver Resort’s commercial Marina for a canoe, kayak, paddle board or raft float on the Deschutes River. Plan on a couple hours for the six mile trip, ending at a takeout just above the Benham Falls Day Use Area. Here a shuttle will conveniently bring you back to the Marina. The general public and guests of the Resort must rent boats from the Marina to utilize this facility. The Sunriver Owners Association owns a private launch and parking area next to the Marina. Access to this facility is restricted to Sunriver owners and their guests. Only those with updated Member Preference and Recreation Plus access cards issued by the Owners Association will be able to utilize this facility. Floats are available on the other parts of the Deschutes River with nearby

public launching sites that include La Pine State Park, Big River and Besson Day Use Area. Please note: There are no public access points within Sunriver proper. You can rent river- and lake-floating equipment from Sunriver Sports, 4 Seasons Recreational Outfitters, Sunriver Toy House Rentals and Tumalo Creek Canoe and Kayak. These stores can also help you with information about where to put-in and take-out, float times and shuttle information. For a thrilling whitewater adventure contact Sun Country Raft Tours. They offer trips on the Upper Deschutes, McKenzie River, North Umpqua or Lower Deschutes River. The nearby Cascade Mountain lakes, including Elk Lake, Devils Lake and Sparks Lake, offer a wonderful opportunity to enjoy views of Mt. Bachelor, Broken Top and South Sisters. Access to these lakes and others is along the Cascade Lakes National Scenic Byway, a 66-mile historic highway. Highway 40 from Sunriver takes you to the Byway either directly or by turning off at Highway 45.

You can also contact Wanderlust Tours for interpreted, guided canoe and kayak tours of the Cascade lakes. Day, evening and moonlight tours are available. Located in the caldera in Newberry National Volcanic Monument, East and Paulina lakes offer a dramatic setting

Recreation for a paddling adventure. Paulina Lake is also popular for fishing and pleasure boating, and you’ll find Paulina Lodge on its shores. To get to Newberry National Volcanic Monument and the two lakes, follow Highway 97 south from Sunriver and turn east on Road 21 just before you get to La Pine. The Paulina Plunge downhill mountain bike ride and waterfall tour is another favorite for locals and visitors. Participants ride downhill for six miles on forest trails, stopping at various points to descend into the Paulina Creek canyon to splash and play in natural waterslides and plunge pools. For any river or lake adventure in the Sunriver area, remember that water temperatures can be cold. A quick dunk may feel good for a few moments, but hypothermia is a real concern for anyone who can’t get out of the water. Life vests, safe boating practices, appropriate clothing, food and drinking water, sunscreen, and knowing in advance the distance and float times are all an important part of fun on the water.

Hiking Trails & More


he Sunriver area is well-known for its plethora of outdoor activities and the hardy adrenaline-seeking 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. Most lakes contain high mountain lake resorts equipped with convenience stores and/or restaurants as well as overnight cabins for rent. 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 feature and contains one 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 21mile Crater Rim trail and provides an amazing way to spend the day and experience one of Central Oregon’s volcanoes.

Stunning Views Await on the Cascade Lakes Scenic Byway

ne of the most beautiful drives in the entire Northwest — the Cascade Lakes Scenic Byway — is conveniently located to Sunriver. 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 in the winter at several Sno-Parks along the way, as well as Mt. Bachelor ski resort. Be sure to stop by the Deschutes National Forest’s Welcome Station located at the junction of Century Drive and Conklin Road (Road #41). Opened in 2016, the friendly staff at the Welcome Station can offer a wealth of information for your visit, including maps, and you can purchase recreation passes.

Directions from Sunriver To access the Cascade Lakes Scenic Byway, take Forest Service Road #40 (South Century Drive, then Spring River Road) headed west, then after several miles turn right onto Road #46 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 arriving at Mt.

Bachelor. Just past Mt. Bachelor you can head back to Sunriver on Road #45, or continue to follow Road #46 to Bend. In the winter, the Byway is closed at the intersection of Road #40 and Road #45. But you can still access Mt. Bachelor via Road #45 and the Sno-Parks on the section of Road #46 from Mt. Bachelor to Bend.

Newberry National Volcanic Monument Preserves Area’s Dramatic Eruptive History


unriver is uniquely situated near the spectacular Newberry National Volcanic Monument, consisting of more than 50,000 acres of beautiful lakes, stunning lava flows and outof-this-world geologic features. A great place to start your exploration of the Monument is at Lava Lands Visitor Center, just north on Highway 97, or ride your bike there from Sunriver on the paved Sun-Lava Trail. At the Visitor Center you can view a 3D map of the entire Monument and learn about its eruptive history, which began 400,000 years ago. Over the centuries the volcanic activity has created massive lava flows covering 1,200 square miles, dozens of lava tubes and more than 400 cinder cones. The Visitor Center also offers daily educational films, easy hikes on the Trail of Molten Lands and the Trail of Whispering Pines, picnics under the pines, ranger interpretive talks, and a hike, drive or bus to the top of Lava Butte — the site of an active fire lookout tower. Just a short drive from the Visitor Center is the Lava River Cave. An ancient lava tunnel about a mile long and 50 feet wide in some places, the cave has a constant temperature of 42 degrees and is open seasonally. Ask at the Visitor Center about the schedule. You can take a self-guided tour of the Lava River Cave and lantern rentals are available. (At least two light sources are recommended) It takes about an hour and a half to tour the entire cave. Initial access descends 55 stairs to a combination of flat boardwalk, uneven surfaces and stairways. Dress warmly, even in the summer! Make the next stop on your National Volcanic Monument tour the Newberry Caldera, located just southeast of Sunriver. Again follow Highway 97, this time south to the turnoff on County Road 21 just before La Pine. Within the Newberry Caldera you’ll find the picturesque Paulina Lake and East Lake. This area offers a wealth of recreational opportunities, including fishing, kayaking, hiking and mountain biking. One of the most popular walks in Newberry Caldera is in the Big Obsidian Flow. A trail through the Flow covers about seven-tenths of a mile in a loop. While it’s an easy trail, you still must take care not to wander off. Obsidian, while beautiful, is a volcanic glass with sharp edges. Best to wear closed shoes and dogs are not allowed for safety reasons. The entire trail takes about an hour to walk, and includes interpretive signs. Another must-see spot is Paulina Peak (elevation 7,985 feet), where you can view the Cascades, Newberry Caldera, and see across the Central Oregon High Desert. You can either hike to Paulina Peak or drive up to the top in the spring and fall. The hike from the Paulina Peak Trailhead is two miles each way, out and back. Cars are not allowed to drive all the way up to the Paulina Peak summit in summer. Your visit to the Newberry National Volcanic Monument would not be complete without hiking the Lava Cast Forest. To get there, follow the main entrance road to Sunriver east onto unpaved Forest Service Road 9720 for almost ten miles to a parking area. The Lava Cast Forest got its name from the trees that became encased in stone by a 6,000 year old lava flow. What remained were casts of the trees, creating large holes that go several feet below the surface. Visitors can view these tree molds within the lava flow on a paved, onemile interpretive trail. And enjoy the beautiful native flowers breathing new life into the ancient lave flow!

Pickleball’s Popularity Grows by Leaps & Bounds


he name “pickleball” may seem funny, but people in Sunriver are serious about their enthusiasm for this rapidly growing sport. Pickleball combines elements of tennis, badminton and ping pong into an exhilarating game that’s easy to learn, while still making for a fast-paced, competitive test of skill. A fun social sport, pickleball is commonly played in doubles format with singles play also popular. And it’s great exercise for the whole family. No wonder then that the popularity of pickleball has grown by leaps and bounds since 2012, when it was first played in an organized fashion in Sunriver. Now, six outdoor pickleball courts are available by reservation from Sunriver Owners Association at Fort Rock Park. For information about court reservations, clinics and lessons, go to and click on the Pickleball page. Also, an active Pickleball Club in Sunriver plays three times a week. The Club, which has grown to 140 members, encourages participation by players from all skill levels. While the play is competitive, the focus is on having fun. Along with the regular playing schedule, the Club hosts a tournament for members in August and a Club BBQ at the end of the season. Sage Springs Tennis & Spa in Sunriver offers pickleball year-round

on six indoor courts that are converted over from tennis courts. Pickleball mixers are offered each week open to members and non-members. Experienced professionals provide lessons to all levels of players with an emphasis on introducing the game to new players, including those visiting Sunriver who want to try pickleball for the first time. Pickleball is now played around the world, and no doubt will continue to gain popularity in Sunriver. It’s all pretty amazing considering the sport was invented more than 50 years ago when three dads from Bainbridge Island, Washington wanted to create an activity to keep their kids busy during summer vacation. And its funny name? One legend has it that the sport was named after a family dog — Pickles — who would chase after the plastic ball. The millions of humans who now play the game can relate.

Sunriver Offers World-Class Tennis


ith an abundance of courts, reliable sunshine and fresh high-desert air, it’s no wonder Sunriver continues to rank high on the lists of destination tennis resorts. In 2018, Sunriver once again made the grade in Tennis Resorts Online Top 75 resorts in the world. Sunriver has truly become Central Oregon’s “Tennis Town” with 24 outdoor courts. Most of the activity can be found at the North Courts next to Woodlands Golf Course and Tennis Hill, adjacent to Fort Rock Park. Smaller court complexes nestled within the pines dot the community, creating a private court experience. Neighborhood courts, available first to Sunriver Owners Association (SROA) members, can be found at Meadow Village, Ranch Cabins, Marketplace and Winners Circle. Condominium courts, available to condo owners and guests, are located at Quelah Condos, Stoneridge Condos, The Pines, Alberello Condos and North Course Estates. The SROA continues to rebuild many of its existing courts

when needed, which proves to be quite a draw for state and national tennis tournaments. SROA’s Sunriver Tennis programs are coordinated by a certified tennis pro and seasoned staff. In 2018, Sunriver Tennis teamed up with Sunriver Resort to provide year-round tennis offerings — thanks to the Resort’s indoor courts.

Family Fun on the Paved Pathways of Sunriver


ne of the most memorable experiences for families visiting Sunriver are the group bike rides and walks on the more than 34 miles of paved pathways that wind through the entire community and up to Lava Lands Visitor Center and Behnam Falls or the Deschutes River. Many rental homes come equipped with bikes, but if they aren’t included and you didn’t bring your own, there are local bike rental shops where you can rent every conceivable kind of bicycle and accessory including toddler trailers, tandem and recumbent bikes. The Sunriver pathways curve around golf courses, under roads, through pine forest, along the Deschutes River and through the Great Meadow. Pathway maps, including pathway rules, are available at the local bike shops and from kiosks along the pathways and roads, and are clearly marked on Sunriver maps. You can leave the car at home in Sunriver!

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. On your ride or walk, learn all about Sunriver from the 20 interpretive trail signs along the pathways (see adjoining article). In addition to the paths through Sunriver, the 5.5-mile SunLava multi-use paved pathway connects to the Lava Lands Visitor Center starting at a well-marked trailhead near Circle 7. The 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 creates a sense of freedom from not having to drive to reach special places. 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. Sun-Lava will also lead you to the Benham Falls East Day Use Area on the bank of the Deschutes River. From there, pedestrians and cyclists can cross the river on a wooden bridge and proceed downstream about a quarter mile on a wide dirt trail to the spectacular Benham Falls. Just about all uses — hiking, biking, skating, skateboards and wheelchairs — are permitted on the Sun-Lava pathway. The pathway is not plowed in winter, providing a delightful and wellmarked cross-country ski trail. Please observe signage in Sunriver where different rules (no roller-skates or skateboards in Sunriver due to higher volumes of traffic) apply. Also, for your safety, bicycles must be walked through pathway tunnels, unless noted otherwise.

Sunriver ~ Your Gateway to World-Renowned Mountain Biking


unriver lies at the epicenter of the Central Oregon mountain biking mecca. Fun and fast single track rides link directly to Sunriver, while miles of world-renowned mountain bike trails are just a short drive away. At Village Bike & Ski, Sunriver Sports, and 4 Seasons Sports — located in The Village — visitors can learn about the myriad riding opportunities in the area from the knowledgeable staff and choose from a wide variety of mountain bikes

for rent. (Including fat-tire bikes — see adjoining article). Sunriver Resort’s Bike Barn or Sunriver Virtual Reality located in the Business Park also offer bike rentals. Guide books on local mountain bike trails are available at Sunriver Books & Music, or go to the Central Oregon Trail Alliance (COTA) website at and for trail maps and conditions. A favorite ride for locals right out of Sunriver is the Deschutes River Trail connecting to the Black Rock Trail, taking riders all the way to the Lava Lands Visitor Center on single track, except for the short connector ride between the two trails. The Deschutes River Trail starts on the north end of Sunriver next to the trailhead for the paved Sun Lava trail. Several miles of easy single track are available to mountain bike riders at La Pine State Park, just south of Sunriver off of Highway 97. For more challenging rides, explore the renowned Phil’s Trails starting at the trailhead on Skyliner Road northwest of

Bend. Or check out the Wanoga complex, the newest riding area in the Bend/Sunriver area, featuring modern design with great flow and a playful feel. The Tyler’s Traverse trailhead off of Road 41 provides the closest place to access these trails. Tons of fun loops start at Swampy Lakes Sno-Park. The crown jewel here is the Flagline Loop. This is a long and at times strenuous ride, with scenery you’ll never forget. Another starting point is the Edison Butte Sno-Park. Here you can do a 17-mile oneway ride to Sunriver with great views, low traffic and incredible single track. Expect some grinding climbs, but also hundreds of fast swooping corners. The Sunriver area bike shops can provide everything you need, including equipment, helmets, supplies, maps, and information about special conditions that might exist. Get the most out of these amazing rides by being knowledgeable and fully prepared.

Conquer the Snow on a Fat-tire Bike


at-tire bikes, also called Fatbikes, offer a whole new dimension (literally) to the mountain bike scene here in Sunriver. With tires up to five inches wide, fat-tire bikes can conquer just about any terrain, especially snow. That makes the trails in and around Sunriver, and the nearby mountains, accessible year-round. Upon first observation, fat-tire bikes may appear really heavy. But the frames and rims are actually designed to make the bikes surprisingly light and easy to handle. As for navigating the snow, the tire pressure is reduced to less than five pounds, providing amazing traction and stability. So even when covered with snow, the many miles of paved pathways in Sunriver are rideable, although there are limits when the white stuff piles up too high. A special trail network accessed from the Wanoga Sno-Park is also now being groomed for fat-tire bikes by volunteers from the Central Oregon Trail Alliance. As the sport becomes more popular, watch for even more fat-tire bike trails easily accessible from Sunriver.



Maximize Your Outdoor Adventure with a Guide


here’s nothing like “local knowledge” when you want to get the most out of an outdoor adventure. Guide services are available for wide variety of activities in Central Oregon, including fishing, floating, biking, climbing and more. Guides with both expertise and experience can make all the difference when it comes to these activities, especially if this is your first visit. Sunriver is fortunate to have three firstclass fishing guide services, all offering both river and lake options. And with so many choices when it comes the various water in the area — more than 400 miles of rivers and 100 lakes in the Central Oregon/Cascade Mountains area — you’ll appreciate their recommendations on where to go, and their expert advice. So contact Garrison Fishing Guide Services, Sunriver Fly Shop or The Hook Fly Shop/Cascade Guides & Outfitters for everything you’ll need to catch one of those big beautiful fish lurking just under the surface. They also offer a selection of fly fishing schools and a complete line of equipment and supplies. For rafting adventurers, the Deschutes River has it all — from the heart pounding thrill of roller-coaster rapids to floating quietly on serene waters surrounded by dramatic canyon landscapes. To book your trip, contact Sun Country Raft Tours, which offers a variety of options, including the nearby Big Eddy float, an allday trip on the Lower Deschutes River starting in Maupin, or excursions on the McKenzie River or North Umpqua River. Central Oregon River Adventures in partnership with Good 2 Go offers both guided and unguided trips on the Deschutes River

t. Bachelor, the crown jewel of Central Oregon’s winter sports mecca, is the sixth largest ski resort in North America. Open for skiing and snowboarding from November through May, the 9,065 foot volcano is the tallest resort peak in all of Oregon and Washington and offers 4,318 acres of skiable terrain. Known for quality snow, diverse terrain and 360 degrees of skiing from the top of the Summit, Mt. Bachelor has a taste of everything. Whether you prefer powder stashes in the trees, steep heart-pumping descents or cruising corduroy, there is something well suited for skiers and riders of all abilities. Eleven chairlifts, including eight high speed quads serve a varied mix of over 100 runs with about 15 percent of the terrain rated as easier, 35 percent more difficult, 30 percent most difficult and 20 percent extremely difficult. New in 2016, the Cloudchaser lift opened 635 additional acres of intermediate and advanced terrain. Not only is Mt. Bachelor a great place for expert skiers and riders to feel the thrill, it is also a fantastic place to learn a snow sport or take the family for an exciting day out. The Sunrise area is a great place to get started with beginner lifts that offer an easy ride up and gentle slope down with a family friendly atmosphere. The Mountain Gateway building in West Village is the one stop shop for everything you need to start your day on the mountain, including tickets, passes and rental equipment. Gravity sports, one of the premiere ski and snowboard shops in Central Oregon, has a large assortment of skis, snowboards, boots, apparel and accessories. Walk right across the way from Gateway to West Village Lodge for a cold beer with a view in Clearing Rock Bar or an array of excellent lunch or breakfast options.

Bachelor is surrounded by the tall hemlocks and pines of the Deschutes National Forest and breathtaking views of the Three Sisters and other Cascade peaks.

It provides athletes of all ages the opportunity to compete and challenge themselves in the midst of the spectacular scenery of Central Oregon. Last year, athletes from 49 states as well as Canada, Germany, Netherlands, Australia, Singapore, Samoa, Saudi Arabia and Korea travelled to race and enjoy all that Sunriver and Central Oregon has to offer.

Twenty different races include an Ultra Sprint, Olympic and BEASTMAN distance Triathlon, Duathlon & AquaBike races, Marathon, Half Marathon, 10K, 5K, a 28K and 50K Trail Run, two bike tours, three Kids Races and more.

The Village at Sunriver Family Friendly & Fun for All


Year-round shopping, dining and entertainment — all right here.

our Sunriver vacation isn’t complete without a visit to The Village at Sunriver. You’ll find the supplies you need for your home, unique souvenirs, tasty local cuisine and family-friendly activities for memories that last a lifetime. Once you get settled in to one of the many lovely vacation rentals available from Vacasa, Cascara Vacation Rentals or Meredith Lodging, start your morning bright and refreshed with a lovely sit-down meal at Café Sintra, Brewed Awakenings Coffee Roasters or Hot Lava Baking Co. Need a grab-and-go option instead? Get your order to go at any of the three, or even hit the drive-through at Brewed Awakenings. After breakfast, head over to the Central Oregon Visitors Association (COVA) to gather information on all there is to see and do in Sunriver. The Village at Sunriver offers a variety of fun activities! In the summer, take a serene, guided stand up paddleboard trip with Sun Country Tours, or a guided raft trip with Good 2 Go Food and Fun. Give fly fishing a go or take a guided fishing trip with Cascade Guides and Outfitters. If you’re feeling brave, try one of Sun Country Tours’ whitewater rafting trips, or rent water sports equipment from Good 2 Go and create your own river adventure. If you’d rather have an adventure on land, rent some bikes from Sunriver Sports or Village Bike and Ski and travel the miles of beautiful bike paths Sunriver has to offer, or rent a moped from Sunriver Moped Rentals. Try your hand at miniature golf, or rock climbing along with other family-


friendly activities at The Family Fun Zone. Make a unique work of art at Live Laugh Love Art, or take a photography class at Copeland Gallery. In the winter, get everything you need for the mountain before you go. Purchase lift tickets and book reservations at Mt. Bachelor’s Sunriver location. Rent skis, snowboards and related equipment from Sunriver Sports or Village Bike and Ski. Stop by Good 2 Go Food and Fun for other fun snowsport rentals, or stay in The Village and skate at the Ice Rink. The shops in The Village have something for all ages and interests. Tumbleweed Toys has offerings for both the young and the young at heart. Village Threads and The Closet both provide unique boutique women’s fashion and trendy accessories for the fashionista; while Sunriver Sports, The Hook Fly Shop and Village Bike and Ski offer seasonal clothing and outerwear along with high-end gear for the outdoor enthusiast. For those looking for a one-of-akind souvenir, specialty shops like The Lazy Daisy, West of the Moon, Your Store and Sunriver Rocks are the place to be. Now that you’ve worked up an appetite, head to one of the many restaurants here in The Village at Sunriver. Try The Village Bar and Grill or Sunriver Brewing Company for various food options and local, award-winning micro-brews. Take your taste buds on a trip at El Caporal Family Mexican Restaurant, or make a reservation to enjoy fine Italian dining at Marcello’s Cucina Italiana. More fine dining can be found at South Bend Bistro, make a reservation and enjoy a meal on the patio as the sun goes down. After you’ve filled up on delicious food at one of the restaurants, finish off the evening with a trip to Goody’s Chocolates and Ice Cream for treats that are sure to delight. If you’re going for a more relaxed vacation, treat yourself to a trip to Obsidian hair spa and to a gorgeous floral arrangement from Flowers at Sunriver Village, then relax with a good book from

Sunriver Books and Music. Afterward, visit the Artist’s Gallery to browse exceptional works of art from local artists. Stop by the Sunriver Country Store on your way out of The Village to purchase all the supplies you will need for a home cooked meal, and finish the evening off with a concert put on by the Sunriver Music Festival. Throughout the year, you will find a wide range of events and entertainment. Start the summer season at The Village during Memorial Day weekend with the annual Meredith Lodging Kid’s Day and Dog Day in May events. For the athlete, join the Deschutes Demolition or Pacific Crest Weekend Sports Festival, which has offerings for athletes of all ages. Celebrate the 4th of July Sunriver style at the First Interstate Bank 4th of July Festival. Travel through time at the Village Bar and Grill Antique and Classic Car Show, or shop for rare home decor at the Sunriver Art Fair and view amazing hand-made quilts at the Quilt Show. In the winter, don’t miss the hugely popular Sunriver Brewing Co. K9 Keg Pull. It’s hard not to fall in love after a vacation in beautiful Sunriver, Oregon.

he history of Sunriver, from its early settlers to becoming a World War II training camp to the creation of a residential community and world class resort, is chronicled in the new book, Images of America: Sunriver. Printed by Arcadia Publishing and written by Bend author Tor Hanson, the 127-page softbound book is a photographic journey of Sunriver’s past and present. You may have seen these popular books — as many have been printed about various regions and historical topics within Central Oregon. Hanson also wrote the book Images of America: Camp Abbot about the World War II training camp that occupied where Sunriver sits today. Hanson spent hundreds of hours doing research and sifted through thousands of images on file at the Sunriver Owners Association and Deschutes Historical Society. Longtime residents, Sunriver Fire & Rescue, Sunriver Resort and the Sunriver Area Chamber of Commerce also provided images and information for the book. Hanson perused every issue of the Sunriver Scene as well as its predecessor, Harold, looking for tidbits of historical relevance as far back as the 1970s. A perfect souvenir for anyone visiting or living in Sunriver, the book is available from the Sunriver Owners Association at the administration office at 57455 Abbot Drive or from Sunriver Books & Music in The Village.




Ice Skating

aybe you can’t do a triple-axel double toe loop to save your life, but you still wouldn’t mind whiling away an afternoon by lacing up some figure skates and hitting the ice for some fun and exercise. The Ice Skating Rink in The Village at Sunriver is the perfect opportunity to take a break from shopping to glide in the area’s longest running ice pavilion. Some of the features

include an indoor warming area with public restrooms and fireplace, quality sounds, lockers and skate assisters to help you stay upright! You can even watch the Zamboni clear the ice in-between sessions! The warming hut with indoor/ outdoor fireplace is the perfect spot to rest and watch the fun. Open November thru mid-April pending weather. Open Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year’s Day! 541-593-5948 •

Reading Embraced & Celebrated in Sunriver Sunriver is a Community of Readers


by Deon Stonehouse, Owner of Sunriver Books & Music inter evenings, after a day of snow-sport, can you imagine anything better than settling into a comfy chair by the fire with a cup of cocoa and a good book? Summers are full of outdoor play! The best way to relax after a full day’s activity is sitting on the deck in the late afternoon shade with a tantalizing book and a glass of lemonade. Whether you are visiting Sunriver for a weekend, or staying a lifetime, Sunriver is

A Letter from a Sunriver Resident


Dear Friend, unriver Magazine is primarily focused on those of you who are visitors and is intended to maximize your enjoyment while you are here. But what many of you may not realize is that Sunriver is one of the largest unincorporated “cities” in the state and that several thousand of us call this special place our home. We have our own fire and police department, our own K-8th school, our own library and mall with stores, brew houses, and restaurants. And where else can you live with the beautiful Deschutes River running along the edge of your community? What’s it like to live here year-round? Well, for most of us, it is like being on a permanent vacation. Like most permanent residents, we first visited Sunriver for vacations. We would either come for a week in the summer or for long ski weekends in the winter. Then, when it was time to retire, we asked ourselves if we wanted to stay where we were currently living, or move to where we could play year-round. When we weighed the pros and cons, the decision was easy. We moved to Sunriver permanently. So while most of us are retired, a growing number of us are still working. A recent study found that Central Oregon, including Sunriver, has the highest percentage of work-at-home workers of anyplace in the country. Think of being able to get up from your office desk to take a break and go out your back door for a walk or bike ride on our 34 miles of paths, or snowshoe on the golf course, or head to the SHARC to exercise or swim, and then come back and go back to work… all without having to get in your car. Since 2000, the City of Bend has grown from 52,000 to close to 100,000. So more and more folks are choosing to live in Sunriver even if they work in Bend. After all, it’s only a 15-20 minute drive on a four lane divided highway. How many of you who are thinking of relocating to Central Oregon

currently have this short of commute? Why not live where you can breathe, not fight the traffic and have a real sense of community? One of the attractive features of Sunriver is that it has no natives. All of us came here from some-where else. So we are very accepting of newcomers, and eager to make new friends. Name me a community that still has a Community Potluck… ours have been going non-stop for almost 50 years. Speaking of 50 years… that’s how old our community is. One might think that makes us old. But look around and you’ll see that we aren’t. We’ve undergone a facelift and done some things to stay young. Here are a few of our recent improvements: • Remodeled the buildings at The Village at Sunriver • Built SHARC (Sunriver Homeowners Aquatics and Recreation Center) • Created a new boat launch for homeowners and their guests on the Deschutes River • Repaved all of our roads and 34 miles of bike paths • Replaced all of the children’s climbing equipment at Fort Rock Park For those of you who have not been to Sunriver this year, you’ll notice our latest enhancement. For years, the entrance to The Village at Sunriver has been a real bottleneck. This year, the community decided to put in two new circles to make it easier and quicker to get into and out of The Village and the rest of the community. Most of the improvements and amenities that have been built in the past ten years have come from money set aside in our reserve fund, yet we currently pay only $128 in monthly maintenance fees. So if you are giving some thought to making Sunriver your home, come visit the Sunriver Area Chamber of Commerce in the Sunriver Business Park to find all the information you’ll need. Sincerely, John Salzer, 20-Year Permanent Resident

Upper Deschutes River Communities


he focus of the Upper Deschutes River Communities (UDRC) is communication and outreach to the community residents, the U.S. Forest Service, the State of Oregon, Deschutes County and community partners. Activities of the UDRC include monthly public informational meetings and large public meetings that focus on understanding the issues relating to water flows on the Upper Deschutes River, the Deschutes river basin and protection of the community from wildfires.

awareness and actions of residents regarding infrastructure, buildings, landscaping, and the surrounding ecosystem lessens the need for extensive protection actions and enables the community to safely accept fire as a part of the surrounding

land-scape." It is a human community consisting of informed and prepared citizens collaboratively planning and taking action to safely co-exist with wildland fire.

The UDRC promotes and helps homeowners to be “fire wise” by creating defensible space on their property. Defensible space is a 30-100’ fire-resistant buffer around a home that reduces the spread of fire and the likelihood of a smoldering ember igniting a home. Reducing flammable vegetation and brush around a home and under nearby trees reduces the potential of fire spreading to a home. Pruning trees away from a roof and other vegetation will reduce the “ladder effect” of fire. Once a home owner creates a defensible space around their home it is important to maintain the space. Trimming back the amount of brush and vegetation on a property reduces the intensity of a fire. Spacing out bitterbrush and keeping grasses mowed low keeps flames short and embers from taking flight so firefighters have a working change of protecting the home and property. A fire adapted community is defined by the United States Forest Service as "a knowledgeable and engaged community in which the 2019-20 |

The 1.2 million Rotarians who make up the 34,000 Rotary clubs in nearly every country in the world share a dedication to the ideal of Service Above Self.

Through these programs young people can earn scholarships, learn leadership skills and engage in cultural exchanges. As community volunteers we reach out, we build, we support and organize. We work locally and globally. We Take Action!

Spirit of Giving Thrives in Sunriver


hile people move to Sunriver from all over the world, we all share the same sense of caring for those in need. Combine this spirit of giving with a strong commitment to making a difference and you get a highly active community of volunteers engaged in a wide variety of organizations. One such group is Care & Share, which provides nourishing food to about 200 low-income families in South Deschutes County on the last Friday of every month, a time when other sources of support may be depleted. Volunteers pick up food at various retail outlets, package fresh fruit, pack the donated food in boxes, and help load clients’ cars. Madeline Bednarek, 541-593-3653 One of the largest groups of volunteers in Sunriver dedicates their time to the Second Tern Thrift Store, located in Spring River Plaza. Utilizing about 70 volunteers, this expansive second-hand store sells a huge array of pre-owned merchandise with the proceeds going to the Sunriver Nature Center & Observatory. The La Pine-Sunriver Habitat for Humanity provides volunteer opportunities to help build homes for lower income families. A new initiative has recently started to reduce the costs of housing by building triplex townhomes at the new Putney Place development. Volunteers also work at the ReStore with all proceeds going to home construction. Helping low-income individuals and families with food, utility bills and prescription medicine is the goal of St. Vincent de Paul in La Pine. People of all faiths work and volunteer at St. Vincent de Paul’s Retail Thrift Store in La Pine. Continued on page 113

Pooch-perfect Sunriver


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 pooch-perfect playground. With 34 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. Whether you are staying in a vacation rental or the Sunriver Resort, you will be able to find many dog-friendly accommodations. Most rental properties are dog friendly. Be sure to verify with your property manager. 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. The Village at Sunriver also offers al fresco dining opportunities as well as many dog-friendly shops. 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 Camp


Abbott Trading Co. 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. During the winter, Edison and Wanoga Sno-Parks have 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 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.

Continued from page 111 Volunteers play a key role at the La Pine Community Kitchen, which provides assistance, including free food, clothing, and produce to those experiencing hunger and a lack of resources. Enjoy working with kids? The Start Making A Reader Today (SMART) program invites adult volunteers to read to children one or two days a week at Three Rivers School, located in the Sunriver Business Park. Sunriver Nature Center & Observatory (SNCO) serves more than 5,000 students each year with educational programs that advance scientific literacy and nurture STEM skills. Volunteers give educational presentations, assist with classes, greet visitors, assist behind the scenes by feeding and caring for the ambassador animals, and provide raptor rehabilitation. At the Oregon Observatory, volunteers give astronomy presentations, and help with rocketry classes. This year the SNCO announced a $5 million Campaign for the Future to expand and modernize its facilities. In partnership with SNCO and the Sunriver Owners

Association, Project Ponderosa is an award-winning educational and environmental program founded by Sunriver resident and retired life science teacher Lee Stevenson. Each year, more than 1,200 Ponderosa Pine seedlings are potted and planted by Three Rivers School fourth graders. Volunteers plant and care for the trees at the local nursery, and help present educational programs. The mission of the Upper Deschutes River Communities (UDRC) is to enable neighborhoods along the area’s rivers to work together to resolve natural resources issues. Volunteer activities include an annual river cleanup, hazardous fuels reduction projects and promoting Firewise Communities. The Sunriver Police Department’s Citizens Patrol utilizes volunteers to help keep the community safe by assisting with traffic control during events and patrolling the community. The Sunriver Area Chamber of Commerce seeks volunteers for its Representatives Program. These individuals serve as ambassadors in the community and help staff the Chamber’s office.

Why F

Businesses Choose Sunriver?

or the past 50 years, the unincorporated resort community of Sunriver has been the destination for travelers across the country looking for a family-friendly vacation in some of America’s most beautiful and diverse landscapes. With roughly 4,200 homes nestled among the pines, Sunriver hosts the largest destination resort in Oregon. But Sunriver is much more than a resort. Nearly one-quarter of those homes are occupied by permanent residents, who own or work at local businesses, support Sunriver area schools, health care services, retail stores, restaurants and other high-quality amenities. Historically, Sunriver has played an outsized (and often unrecognized) role in the growth and prosperity of the entire Central Oregon region. Only a few years after Sunriver Resort’s establishment, the Central Oregon Visitors Association (COVA) was founded in 1971 to help proactively market the region, thanks in part to room taxes collected. Since then, COVA has deployed more than $40 million in strategic marketing and advertising putting Central Oregon on the map. A dozen years after the resort was founded, another nonprofit came together to form what is now known as EDCO (Economic Development for Central Oregon). Its purpose was to help build other industries alongside tourism to create a diversified economy that would be able to better withstand economic cycles. The synergy between these two organizations has been important for the region.

area by offering business development and educational programs, providing local business referrals, and serving as a facilitator on Sunriver area business issues. The Chamber operates a business center and co-working space from its office in the Sunriver Business Park. Speaking of the Sunriver Business Park, it is home to one of the most successful and celebrated craft breweries in the nation. Sunriver Brewing has won numerous gold medals both at the national and state level since its inception in 2012. Since then, the company has grown to more than 150 employees between its brewing and pub operations in Sunriver and Bend. While Sunriver Brewing has a very public profile, there are many other home-based businesses that quietly provide goods and services to customers across the country. For example, Cascade Wellness Technologies, a manufacturer of a revolutionary new therapeutic device, came together in the founder’s garage. Similar entrepreneurial success stories abound in the Sunriver area and throughout Central Oregon. The incredible scenic beauty of Sunriver is the primary contributor to its #1 asset: human talent. Currently, the Sunriver and La Pine area has some of the largest percentages of residents that commute to jobs. They also have some of the longest commutes in the region, which is a very real opportunity for employers to capture a skilled, experienced and talented workforce with jobs that are closer to home. That workforce is 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. As an employer, this means easier recruitment and better retention.

Continued from page 120 We are just 15 minutes from Bend, located in the heart of Central Oregon at about 4,200 feet elevation with 300 or so days of sunshine. The Sunriver area’s natural beauty — blended with access to resort amenities — make it a dream place to live for those wanting to escape the hustle and bustle of the Big City. Residents thrive with little traffic, a small population and less building density. The Sunriver and TRS neighborhoods offer sanctuary to nature, wildlife and people who want to escape the modern world’s noise and haste. We have all the creature comforts, and we value community connections and new friendships. Property Values: A wide variety of homes are available to buyers in both the Sunriver and TRS communities. Looking at sales over a recent one-year period in Sunriver, prices ranged from about $300,000 to $1.6 million. The average Sunriver home sold for about $540,000 and $240 per square foot.

Continued from page 125 In TRS, selling prices during this same one year period ranged from about $250,000 to $2.65 million. The average home sold for about $554,000 and $244 per square foot. When evaluating a specific property for the purpose of making a purchase, local realtors can provide the in-depth research you

need based on a number of factors, including floorplan, historical repairs/condition, zoning, HOA or CCR restrictions, taxes, utilities and many others. On-line websites don’t provide this level of information. Building Costs/Rental Policies: Generally, the building costs in the Sunriver area are lower than places like the City of Bend, which has higher development charges. Rental policies here also tend to be more flexible. Many visitors elect to buy a second home or investment home here to perpetuate a family legacy or for rental income between their vacations. Vacation rental homes in Sunriver average between 100-125 nights per year. Sunriver Amenities: Many people find that once living or vacationing here, there is no need to travel elsewhere. Snuggled between 11 interconnected “villages,� owners and guests commonly travel by foot or bike via the paved pathways to nearby shops, stores and fitness facilities. Or they take their cars on the well-maintained roads. Sunriver is served by its own police and fire departments.

SROA, Dues, CCRs: Property ownership includes membership in the Sunriver Owners Association (SROA) and entitles owners to use the community’s recreational amenities and provides for maintenance of the roads, trails, common areas and facilities with monthly dues of $128.35. SROA regulations also govern housing styles and landscaping guidelines to preserve Sunriver’s nature-based living. It’s important to know that in certain housing tracts there may be additional Homeowner Association fees and specific Covenants, Codes and Restrictions (CCRS). These rules may or may not prohibit overnight vacation or long-term rentals, and may include exclusive use of certain pools and sports courts, and some do not allow hot tubs. Three Rivers South Properties: This area is aptly named for the 27 communities between Sunriver and La Pine that can intersect or are near the Deschutes, Spring and Fall rivers. TRS is for those who want homes with views, but with greater variety of Continued on page 129 2019-20 |
