Welcome to Sunriver

Photo courtesy of Suriver Resort


he Sunriver Area Chamber of Commerce and Cascade Publications Inc., publishers of Sunriver 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 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 will overlook a new manmade 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 34 miles of paved bike and walking paths, the scenic Deschutes River and Sunriver Resort’s worldclass golf in your backyard. Challenging play on 31 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. 2017-18 |

Troops training



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 worldclass 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


The entrance to Camp Abbott, a combat engineer training facility during WWII. 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. This structure still stands today and is called The Great Hall. It was renovated in 1993 but

maintains the feel of the original structure. Just like today, vehicles arriving at Camp Abbot passed over a railroad bridge. The first thing on their right was a medical demonstration area (now Antelope and Bobcat Lanes), with the post stockade just beyond. The gas chamber, where troops trained in chemical warfare defense, was near Hare and Jay Lanes. The post included a 411-bed hospital complex that stretched from the current business park to near Parkland and East Park Lanes. There were numerous training fields, barracks, dining facilities and warehouses. There was a post motor pool, coal storage area and sewage treatment plant. (Sunriver Owners Association still uses one of the sedimentary tanks, now called a round house, for maintenance work and storage.) Out in the meadow, two rifle ranges (stretching from today’s airport runway to River Road) and two machine gun ranges echoed with the sound of rapid fire. Beyond them was the anti-tank range. More than 90,000 combat engineers were trained at Camp Abbot before it abruptly closed in June 1944. 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. By 1979 the number of privately owned homes had doubled to 1,200. In 1993 Sunriver Resort Limited Partnership purchased Sunriver Resort and began a capital improvement campaign that continues to this day. Today there are more than 4,000 homes and condominiums, many of which are second homes owned by people who live up and down the West Coast, across the country and around the world. Many are available as vacation rentals and these, combined with the Resort’s overnight lodging facilities, host as many as 15,000 visitors a day in the heat of the summer and during winter holidays. Sunriver has a long and rich history dating back hundreds if not thousands of years. From its beginnings as a trapper’s rendezvous point to a World War II training area, modern day Sunriver has become a paradise for all to enjoy. Portions of this article were contributed by Brad A. Ward MD and Jonathan Kahnoski. 2017-18 |

The SHARC That Loves Tourists by SROA Staff


uring more than one million vacationers, residents and guests through its doors since its opening in spring 2012, Sunriver Homeowners Aquatic & Recreation Center (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 down the tubing hill (winter months), scrambled around the playground, shoot hoops on the full size basketball court, played disc golf, 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. Schoolage 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 be split into two smaller rooms) 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 (who are members of Sunriver Owners Association), 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 2017-18 | 2016-17



Kokanee Salmon


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 you can catch both Salmon and Steelhead on their return trip from the Pacific Ocean.

Brown Trout

Chinook Salomon

Aquatic Adventures Await


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 where a shuttle will conveniently bring you back. The Marina offers family float trips, kayak, canoe, raft and stand-up paddleboard rentals and lessons on a first-come, first-served basis, so get there early. The Marina, closed during winter months, also sells boating supplies, sportswear and snacks.

Floating the River in Sunriver


by Sunriver Scene 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.

Hiking Trails


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 convenience stores and/or restaurants as well as over-night 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.

Scenic Byway Road cyclists love the scenic Cascade Lake Byway.


unriver is conveniently located near what’s 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. Be sure to stop by the new Deschutes National Forest’s Welcome Center located at the junction of Conklin Road and the Scenic Byway.

Newberry National Volcanic Monument


ewberry 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 (Paulina Lake and East Lake), Oregon’s youngest lava flow, Paulina Falls which spills 80 feet over the caldera’s rim and Paulina Peak (7,985 feet). Newberry’s eruptive history began 400,000 years ago and has created massive lava flows that covered 1,200 square miles, dozens of lava tubes, and over 400 cinder cones and volcanic vents during its active periods. 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 thousands 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 Visitor 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 the site of an active fire lookout tower. 541-383-5530

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 ¼-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 ten largest ski resorts 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 rides 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 opens 635 additional acres of intermediate and advanced terrain. The lift is well protected from Mt. Bachelor’s most common Northwest weather flow and further reduces the already minimal lift lines. 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. 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. 800-829-2442

Major Remodel Expands Sunriver Hardware Spot Camp Abbot Trading Company to Serve as Wide-Ranging General Store


by Simon Mather for SR Magazine unriver has a new hotspot for expanded retail options with the launch of Camp Abbot Trading Company, which is set to serve as a wide-ranging general store for the popular residential

and resort community. The project was the brainchild of Bob Mitchell, who bought the former Hammer Time Home Center property on Venture Lane in late 2015 and set about undertaking a major remodel and conversion as part of bringing the outlet into the Ace Hardware fold. Mitchell owns ten Ace Hardware stores in Oregon and Washington, including three locations in Bend. The renovated 16,000 square foot store — which also features a 20,000 square foot garden center with a greenhouse — was named in part in homage to the site of the U.S. Army camp used to train combat engineers during WWII, where much of the resort was later developed, but also to reflect a wider format typical of an earlier era. Mitchell said, “Camp Abbot Trading Co. is far more than just a hardware store. Not only was the store reconfigured to offer an expansion in hardware, it has a Hallmark Gold Crown, Purina feed and pet supplies, full rental department, gifts, sporting goods, housewares, garden center and clothing. “Camp Abbot Trading Co. will be an authorized dealer for brands such as STIHL Power Tools, Carhartt, Craftsman, Big Green Egg, Yeti, Traeger and Segway, just to name a few. “Like most remodels, the Camp Abbot Trading Co. has taken much longer and has cost much more than expected! Though we ran into many issues with the old building, we wanted to see it through and make sure it was done right because we plan on being here for a long time. “Along with restoring and making modifications that would allow us to function better as a retail store, we did things like adding HVAC, which the building never had, changing all the interior and exterior lighting to LED and making improvements to the ADA accessibility.” Mitchell added that as Ace is the world’s largest hardware retail cooperative, and the largest non-grocery American retail cooperative, stores buy many lines of palletized goods by the semi-truckload which can help reduce overall costs for local stores. Features of the new Camp Abbot Trading Co. departments include:


Ace Hardware — The hardware department will offer more products than the old store and with three other affiliated stores in the area and a main distribution warehouse nearby, is able to offer better pricing and the ability to keep inventory in stock. Hallmark Gold Crown — Hallmark will carry all the signature items and collectibles only found in a Hallmark Gold Crown store. Mitchell’s company put the first Hallmark Gold Crown store within a store in Washington last year, which proved so successful that Hallmark is looking to expand the concept throughout the country. Pet, Feed and Rural Farm Supply — Carrying the full line of Purina pet and feed products, along with most everything needed for the care of pets and farm animals, even ranging to carrying live chickens. Clothing — The store carries Carhartt clothes and shoes as well as a line of women’s clothing and accessories. Sporting Goods — Camping, hunting, fishing and general outdoor recreation gear. BBQ — Authorized dealer for Big Green Egg, Traeger, Weber and Charbroil. Housewares — Everything from small appliances and cleaning supplies to kitchen gadgets. Rental — Tool and equipment rental department as well as recreational equipment and party rentals. STIHL Power Tools — Authorized dealer and service center for the full line of outdoor power tools. Gifts — Candles, home décor and collectibles. Garden Center — Over 20,000 square foot garden center with a 3,500 square foot greenhouse, selling items such as plants, shrubs, lawn furniture, soils, pots and planters and pavers. Segway — Only authorized Segway dealer in Central Oregon. Building Materials — The store will carry lumber, insulation, steel works, and most of the products expected from a builders store. The extensive remodel covered installation of new flooring, ceiling, lighting and shelving systems.The lumberyard will carry expanded wood products offerings, and larger equipment and power tools will be made available for rent, which previously residents may have had to trek to cities north to find. The building exterior has been remodeled to reflect more of a lodge theme in keeping with the area’s traditional look, with stone columns around the entry and various stylized facades facing the South Century Drive frontage to add individual character.

HIGH DESERT MUSEUM There’s Something for Everyone!


ust 11 miles up the highway from Sunriver, the High Desert Museum feels like it’s a world away. Be eye-to-eye with a bird of prey. Watch river otters frolic. Meet characters from the past. Discover everchanging exhibits. There’s a reason we’re consistently ranked the #1 attraction in Central Oregon by TripAdvisor! Step back in time and discover the 1904 Miller Family Ranch and Sawmill. Mrs. Miller and her collection of colorful friends may be there, happy to tell you all about her log cabin, fancy French chickens, donkeys and Mustang (the latter two are there in the warmer months.) Kids are welcome to play a frontier game in Mrs. Miller’s yard or help her plant her garden. We dare you to ask if you can take a selfie with her! Explore frontier life and learn about Native American culture and history in the Museum’s immersive permanent exhibits. This year, one of the Museum’s featured temporary exhibits is World War II: The High Desert Home Front. The exhibit explores the role the West’s high desert played in the war and the war’s long-lasting impact on the region. For instance, the property on which Sunriver Resort is built was once Camp Abbott, a military training camp.Japanese balloon bombs caused the only casualties in the continental U.S. when they landed in Oregon. The Hanford Site manufactured the plutonium used in the first nuclear bomb, and Japanese Americans here were placed in

internment camps. During the summer, be sure to experience Raptors of the Desert Sky! Your heart will surely pound as raptors fly just over your head during this incredible daily program held among the ponderosa pines on our property. See hawks, eagles, owls and vultures glide through the audience. Hold onto your hats! While you’re here, have lunch in our café and be sure to visit Silver Sage Trading, where you can buy great gifts, souvenirs, Native American jewelry, books and fun, educational toys. Throughout the year, the Museum offers inspiring programs, workshops, field trips and events. Check our website for information. Our friendly staff and volunteers look forward to welcoming you and your family! Summer hours: 9am-5pm daily May 1-October 31. Adults $15, seniors $12, kids $9, children four and under, free. Winter hours: 10am-4pm daily November 1-April 30. Adults $12, seniors $10, kids $7, children four and under, free. 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 on November 18, which include unique light displays, children’s crafts, a small parade and more! Or treat yourself to a sleigh ride on an oldfashioned, 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 TuckIn” to read a magical story and bid the children goodnight.

What they might not be aware of is how much the resort has improved their facilities in recent years. Last year they built their own pool complex, The Cove, exclusively for their guests which has significantly reduced congestion at SHARC during the busy summer months. They have also 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 (bike paths completed), 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 $120 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-8th grade school, our own library, our own mall with markets, stores and restaurants, and most importantly, a real sense of community with permanent residents that 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, Cascara 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 Hammer Time Home Center 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, Tumalo Creek Kayak & Canoe, Sunriver ToyHouse Toys 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 dogfriendly 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.

Sunriver Women’s Club unriver Women’s Club (SRWC) welcomes women from Sunriver and the surrounding communities. We have been active in the community since 1972 with over 250 members.

Our goals: • To maintain a club for fellowship and recreation. • To engage in charitable and educational activities. • To promote the social welfare of residents of Sunriver and surrounding communities.

No matter the time of year, there are things to do — something for everyone. Winter sports, dinner club, hikes, book clubs, lunch with friends, a knitting group and monthly luncheons with interesting speakers. There is an active group that meets for concerts, plays and other events in the area. The moonlight snow shoe events and summer Community Picnic are not to be missed. SRWC has a long history of supporting nonprofit organizations in the South Deschutes County. In the past year $34,000 in grants were awarded to nonprofits providing basic needs of food, clothing, shelter and education for children and families. The highly successful Sunriver Art Fair in August and the Winter Gala in December, plus smaller events throughout the year, raise funds to make these grants possible. For more information, membership forms and a complete schedule of activities, please see:

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.” Individual Rotary clubs belong to Rotary International. Individual members, or Rotarians, belong to a club. The club is where most of the meaningful service work is carried out. Clubs can be engaged in their communities and internationally. The Mission of Rotary International is to provide service to others, promote integrity and advance 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 a Rotary Fellowship to network with others


who share your vocation, avocation, hobby or interest. By participating in international activities, you become part of a global network of professionals seeking world peace and understanding. All Rotarians are united in a global campaign to eradicate polio. 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. As community volunteers we reach out, we build, we support and organize. We work locally and globally. We Take Action! If you would like to join our local Rotary Club, complete information on our weekly meetings, programs and membership details can be found on the website:

Why I

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 community 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 selfgoverned 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 impending 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. (More on economic opportunities go to www.

That’s why once you are a guest here, you start plotting how you can become a part or full-time resident or buy an investment home where you can get away from the bustle of life — and rent out as an overnight or long-term property for side income. You would be hard-pressed to find anywhere else that is still affordable, is a recreational hub that spells RELAX and easily accessible with scenic passes as you travel here to unplug and unwind. Once my clients move here, they cannot wait to return back HOME. Plus, you can actually build a large shop, RV garage or even an airport hangar in your backyard. You can live in gated communities or with acres of wilderness as your skyline.

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 but with its trails, shopping, restaurants and nightlife it has allure of its own with more privacy, space to explore and relax with all the resort amenities just a bike ride away. Where else can you enjoy over 30 miles of paved biking, hiking, crosscountry skiing or snowshoeing paths — in Sunriver proper’s eleven inter-connected villages or its adjacent 27 neighborhoods surrounded by 5,500 acres of trees and meadows of High Desert country,

the Deschutes National Forest and bordered by over eight miles of the sparkling Deschutes River and fish, boat with over 40 lakes or reservoirs in a 100-mile radius? In a typical day and within ten minutes, you can meander the paved trails overlooking the Deschutes River with stunning views of Mt. Bachelor or Paulina Range with meadows in the foreground, stop to check out the Nature Center, shop at The Village at Sunriver or splash, snack and sun yourself at the SHARC by day and the constellations by night in the Oregon Observatory. Yet with all these amazing amenities just down the road, you are not paying the high prices of Bend. For example, at the time of publication even with the lowest inventory in a decade — a seller’s market, in which there is only three months or less of inventory, you can purchase an existing 1,500-2,000 square foot home at $192 per square foot with an average asking price of $340,000 in Sunriver or in Three Rivers South as opposed to $254 per square foot with an average asking price of $442,000 somewhere else. Or if you wish to build your own Shangri-La, you can purchase land and build your dream home on a quarter-acre lot or up to 13 acres to be away from people. The Sunriver area is not a “retirement community” or a “hotel” to house vacation rental

Building, Remodeling & Maintaining 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

Work, Play, Live in Sunriver Continued from page 119 guests or visitors, but is actually a self-sustaining and tight-knit residential, resort and business community for all generations of residents, their families, neighbors and guests. Since its inception in 1967 by developer John Gray, the continual respect and concern for the environment has made Sunriver “Naturally Different” as people in the community and the homes and lifestyles they enjoy cultivate the simple pleasures of life and the basic principles of happiness: enjoying nature and wildlife, fun gatherings and memorable meals, traditions and Americana festivals.

Those who live full time in Sunriver are part of a relatively small community that enjoys the peace and changing seasons and scenery 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 the SHARC. The business community offers Enterprise Zones in the Sunriver Business Park and in Spring River Plaza as well as its most recent Rural Tourism Studio

William M. Wood • Photography (RTS) grant from Travel Oregon. This 15-year RTS project will work to build an initial “driving trail”and eventually other trails for various activities from Sunriver to La Pine to outlying areas of Gilchrist, Crescent, Fort Rock, Christmas Valley and Silver Lake. The Sunriver Nature Center & Oregon Observatory has begun a capital funding program of over $2 million to expand and remodel their facilities. Jennifer Curtis, manager, Sunriver Nature Center reports,“Last year, the Sunriver Nature Center and Observatory welcomed over 45,000 guests to its campus near Lake Aspen, nearly five times the visitors for which it was designed. It is past time for a facilities renaissance, which is why the Campaign for the Sunriver Nature Center and Observatory, a $2.5 Million effort, deserves the attention and support of all who cherish Sunriver’s immersion into the woods, wetlands and skies of Central Oregon.” Within the greater Sunriver area since 2010, more than $50 million has been invested back into the community by the area’s major players — Sunriver Owners Association including its recreation center called (SHARC), the renovations at the Sunriver Resort and the major improvements at The Village at Sunriver.
