10 Reasons to Book a Sunriver Vacation Home
1. The Memories
How often to do get together with your family and truly unwind? A Sunriver family vacation creates memories for both you and your children that will last a lifetime. From star gazing from the comfort of the private hot tub, to when your cousin’s baby took her first steps, to that 6-hour game of Monopoly that just wouldn’t end. These memories are priceless and a visit to Sunriver should become your new family tradition if it isn’t already.
2. Get Bit By the SHARC
No, we’re not talking about Jaws, the infamous shark from classic movie fame. Sunriver’s SHARC recreation center offers fun for the entire family. Kids love playing for hours in the shallow swimming pools with fun water features. Adults love slowly floating along in the lazy river with a kid or two in tow. If you didn’t get enough chances to head down one of the two water slides, there’s always next summer!
3. Floating the Mighty Deschutes River
As many have discovered, floating the Deschutes or Little Deschutes Rivers makes for a relaxing and enjoyable summer afternoon. Feel the warmth of the sun on your skin and then cool in the easy current of the river. This free and family-friendly activity has become a favorite of visitors and locals alike.
4. Festival Frenzy
In Central Oregon, we value community above all else (yeah, we said it, sorry craft beer). With a variety of festivals occurring throughout the summer you have the chance to bond with your family in a community setting. In Sunriver, join us for the 4th of July Festival in the Village, the Sunriver Art Faire in August, and a wealth of festivals in Bend — Bite of Bend, Bend Summer Festival, Balloons Over Bend Children’s Festival and more!
5. Get Tee’d Off
Central Oregon boasts dozens of world-class golf courses, which make for the perfect summer day. Whether escaping challenging your aunts and uncles during the annual family reunion golf tournament or meeting your fraternity brothers for a reunion on the links, Sunriver and Central Oregon offer a variety of courses to work on your backswing.
6. Ace in the Hole
With a variety of public and private tennis courts available throughout Sunriver, you can get your fix all summer long. In addition to tennis courts, Sunriver also has Pickleball courts, which has become one of the fastest growing and most popular racquet sports in Central Oregon and across the country. Some condos even include private access to tennis courts with their rental fees.
7. Craft Beer Mecca
What do you call the beer loving equivalent of a foodie? If you love craft beer, wine, cider and kombucha, you’ve come to the right place! Central Oregon has become a Mecca for beer lovers with breweries around every corner. In Sunriver, we’re especially proud to be home to Sunriver Brewing Company, who recently took the title of ‘2017 Small Brewing Company of the Year’ at the Great American Beer Festival. Didn’t make it to all of the breweries this summer? Rebooking for next summer gives you another opportunity to try more!
8. Awesome Adventures
All of the amazing adventures accessible from your home base in Sunriver can’t be contained within one list, but we’ll try. Into hiking? Biking? What about a helicopter tour of Central Oregon? No matter what feeds you desire for adventure, you’ll find a constant flow of activities and recreational opportunities just outside your front door.
9. Bonding Over Bikes
Remember when you son or daughter took their first crack at riding a bike without training wheels? Or when the entire family set down their smartphones and bonded over a bike ride through the 30-miles of paved bike path in Sunriver? These are the moments you’ll always remember and they happened during your Sunriver summer vacation.
