"Our family of 10 gathers in Sunriver each summer and this house was perfect for us. It had lots of room with great decks and a nice view of the golf course. The kitchen is spacious which was nice for several of us being in there at the same time. We will return again."Guest: Lynne S. Date of Stay: July 2013 Review Submitted: August 1, 2013View listing
"Husband, 15-year-old son and I shared this home with another couple and their well-behaved dog for a week in June 2014. This was our sixth summer in Sunriver, second time renting in Caldera and this was our favorite home of the lot. Great ranch-style layout, well-appointed kitchen, all bedrooms ensuite -- much to love here. Sunriver Resort was the management company and they had the home ready with plenty of extra towels -- they even shuttled over an extra remote control battery that was strangely missing. House plusses -- clean, newer, air-conditioned. New home means big great room/open kitchen concept which was ideal for our group. We ended up cooking a lot. The outdoor dining/hot tub area is right off the kitchen so we could eat out or in depending on the weather -- we got rain 3 of 5 days. All bedrooms were ensuite with the master having a separate tub. Great! House has a tankless water heater so hot water is ready immediately. The two bedrooms with kings each had their own doors with patio access. House was spotless, hot tub super clean. Decor is lovely (I think all Sunriver houses are decorated similarly by design -- could be confusing if you are renting multiple homes!) Location is perfect -- the pool house, lake and golf are right across the street. Sunriver Resort guests (which we were) are allowed to play the par 3 course there for free. The house is also super convenient to the main road entrance so you can drive over to the Village quickly -- 5 minutes -- if you need something at the store. The house seems huge due to the 18 foot ceilings. Windows everywhere let nature in. Minuses -- the master bedroom does not have window treatments on the top windows (see ceiling comment) so you will be up at dawn (5:15 in summer) if you need a dark room for sleep. The sun is blinds you in the kitchen early morning. This was our second Caldera rental with a window treatment issue. The master bedroom has a direct eastern exposure -- it was so unfortunate that we didn't get good sleep. The other bedrooms don't have the vaulted ceilings (one faces east, the other west) so light wasn't as big an issue. Other sleep issue -- the master and the second king bed room have the beds sharing a wall -- the beds are back-to-back. If anyone snores, you will hear it. Kitchen gas (yeah!) cooktop four burners and downdraft fan struggled to cook for six. Also, no bikes in garage -- had to add $450 to our tab to rent them for 5 days. Bummer! That's all!"Guest: Leslie Z. Date of Stay: June 2014 Review Submitted: June 30, 2014View listing
"The house was in great condition and spacious enough to support a family get together. Conveniently accessible to all of Sunriver's amenities. Will definatley stay here again!"Guest: Kris M. Date of Stay: February 2014 Review Submitted: March 5, 2014View listing
"Golf House 42 is an ideal place to relax while enjoying comforts and activities, as desired. Situated adjacent to a golf tee box, we were able to sit on the deck and watch golfers take their shot at hole #11 without a target on our back. When it came time to lift a finger, Glaze Meadow Rec Center presented swimming, exercise, and spa opportunities. The house is great for families with children, presenting outdoor areas to run and discover nature. At the end of the day, the updated kitchen is great for refueling for the next day of fun."Guest: Matt Date of Stay: April 2012 Review Submitted: May 9, 2012View listing
Central Oregon Travel Tips
Find Central Oregon’s Delights at Central Oregon Vacation Rentals
Oregon State is a vast landscape with parts of coastal cliffs, mountains vistas, and wineries. Central Oregon is perhaps the most imperative to geology and scientific knowledge because it was formed on the fiery lava from volcanoes and icy glaciers from the Ice Age. The lava fields run rampant near south of Bend, yet north of the Columbia River. From the Cascade summit towards the east to the Blue Mountains lay the lava fields. One-fourth of Central Oregon is made up of the forested and lake-filled district of the Cascades. Here, one will find volcanic peaks and verdant forests for outdoor recreation. The rest of Central Oregon is more of a plateau with juniper trees dotting the landscape and buttes rising over gorges below. If you have never explored this region, now is the time with Central Oregon vacation rentals. Each rental establishment offers you a budget stay with kitchen, plenty of beds, and space for the entire family reunion. You may even find cozy little Central Oregon cottages for the smaller family or couple.
Making Your Way to Central Oregon’s Diverse Beauty
Travel in Oregon is generally on north-south highways like Interstate 5 which runs from Washington through California. US highway 97 is also a scenic route through Central Oregon. Whether you traipse through Oregon on US 97 or US 20 towards the Sisters, you will find plenty of small roads around the villages, towns, and cities of the region.
The Sisters Gateway to Central Oregon Lodging
The Sisters is a gateway to two very important Oregon Passes of the Cascades. From the Sisters, it is possible to find McKenzie and Santiam Passes which take you along a scenic mountain drive through the wilds of the forests. Santiam Pass is less formidable as the lower pass and open for summer and winter adventures. McKenzie pass is only open in summer as it's impassable in winter due to snow. With these passes, one can reach Bend, Redmond, and Prineville and spend the day at Sheep Rock or John Day Fossil Beds National Monument. These two locations tell much about Oregon 30 million years ago.
Deschutes National Forest is to the east with forest roads leading into the lava fields. The country can look a bit forbidding yet when you venture into the forest and lava fields, you cannot help but think of the past. You will wonder at the animals who lived millions of years ago, how the landscape has changed, and if one of the dormant volcanoes will ever awake again.
Weather's Impact on Your Vacation
For those who know of Washington’s rainy days in its temperate rainforest, it is hard to imagine that Oregon would be any different with its forests. Parts of Oregon like Portland are very rainy but Central Oregon is a whole other land. Central Oregon can boast of 300 days of sunshine each year. In winter, it will snow but during the summer months, you should expect sunny skies, with sunsets over lakes you may have only seen in photographs. The sky will change from an azure blue to a deep reddish orange or purplish hue at dusk. If you are lucky, you will be out on the lake in a boat or on top of mountain to see the green forests and buttes surrounding you.
With such fine weather, one can hike, rock climb, or swim in the lower lakes. If you are going rock climbing, the butte region of Central Oregon is best, and hiking is better in the Cascades. You will discover some of the areas are an easy walk through the forests, whereas others are miles of uphill walking to spy wildlife, flowers, trees, and native Oregon birds.
In winter, skiing both Alpine and Nordic are possible. If you prefer, skating, snowmobiling, and snowshoeing are also wintery attractions in Central Oregon.
Places to Dine Around Central Oregon Cottages
With a region as large as Central Oregon, it would be tough to name all the restaurants in which to dine. However, if you stay near or at Central Oregon lodging, you will have resort restaurants as well as local establishments to choose from. You should expect ranch-style cuisine, with many American entrees as well as some international favorites.
