  • Family trip

    "We stayed 3 nights at Sweet's Retreat in December, 2 parents plus 2 college age kids. It was a perfect place for us. The location was great, loved the Newport Market across the street. We skied 2 days at Mt. Bachelor and spent some time in town. Couldn't have been better. The house had everything we needed and then some."

  • Best House In Sunriver

    "We have stayed at Backwoods 11 many times since the 1990s. It is by far our favorite place to stay in Sunriver. The location of this home is RIGHT by the mall, so you can literally walk over in about 3 minutes (280 steps!) yet it has always been very quiet and restful there. The home is exceptionally clean and there is room for everyone to spread out. There are six bedrooms (one is the game room) so everyone can have their own space and privacy. Each bed was comfortable too...everyone in our party slept great! Also, this home has SEVEN bathrooms (five of the bedrooms have their own private bath!) so you will never have to wait! I have never seen a home so well-stocked as Backwoods 11. The kitchen has every spice you need, sugar, flour, olive oil, and cooking spray. There are tons of baking dishes, trays, and cooking utensils. You can cook a gourmet meal here and have EVERYTHING you need! The owner has always gone the extra mile and made sure you are set to go with extra paper towels, toilet tissue, dishwashing and laundry supplies, barbecue supplies, the list goes on and on. They have thought of everything! There are tons of bikes for kids and adults too. We had so much fun exploring Sunriver and riding the miles and miles of bike paths. There are 8 SHARC passes. We went tubing during our stay....we highly recommend it! The lazy river swim area was open when we stayed but we didn't go during our week there but it looked fun though! The internet worked great too and we were able to stream movies from Netflix through our own account. We watched the NCAA tournament on the huge flat screen TV in the living room (there are several other TVs in the home so everyone can watch what they want) and there is large collection of DVDs there for you to choose from. I almost forgot to mention the game room. Your kids will LOVE it! There is a pinball machine and several other arcade machines. One of them has all those classic arcade games from the 80s and 90s--we had a blast playing them. There is also a jukebox in the living room for your listening pleasure! I just cannot recommend this home highly enough. You will LOVE staying here and will come back year after year like we have. PS....you will love their other rental, Backwoods 4. It is amazing too!! We have stayed there numerous times and it is every bit as good as Backwoods 11. You will love either home!"

Oregon Travel Tips

Outdoor enthusiasts, this is the place you’ve always dreamed of. Oregon is abound with hiking trails, bike paths, kayak adventures and more than 5,900 registered campsites. The Beaver State is sure to offer anything with fresh air and exquisite views. But once you’ve settled in, you’ll have to grab a beer at one of the dozens of microbreweries in this trendsetting culture. Find a taste of every terrain on earth - vast forests, volcanic peaks, deserts and lakes. Come check out what the Pacific Northwest has to share.

Here’s a glimpse at what to do across the state:

Greater Portland

Gardens, breweries, hip coffee shops - Portland has it all. Take a stroll around America’s largest open air arts and crafts market at Portland Saturday Market. You’ll be able to enjoy live music and a variety of astonishing and homemade products from March through December. Planning a family day trip? Head five minutes west from downtown to see the Oregon Zoo, which features more than 2,000 animals and has a highly-regarded Asian elephant breeding program.

If you need a slice of urban serenity, which might sound like an oxymoron, walk through the Lan Su Chinese Garden to be proven otherwise. The bridges, open colonnades, teahouse and garden designed in the Ming Dynasty style will leave you at ease. Moreover, Portland’s live music scene boasts everything from indie rock to soulful jazz. Buy tickets to Arlene Schnitzer Concert Hall that sells the house out with the Oregon Symphony and nationally-touring acts. For nature excursions, one of the best places is Forest Park, which is the nation’s largest wooded urban park that packs more than 70 miles of hiking and walking trails. You would never guess it’s only 10 minutes away from downtown. To unwind, swing by one of the 31 microbreweries in the city. You’ll be sure to get your IPA or stout fix, with everything in between. Forget about PBR for one day. There is a reason why vacationers call Portland "Beervana."

The Coast

With almost 365 miles of coastline speckled with lighthouses, the western ridge of Oregon carries outstanding beach hikes to give your calves a little workout. Soak in the tide pools at Cape Perpetua Scenic Area, or simply take in panoramic views while the waves crash against the jagged rocks. It is said this is where forest meets the sea. Come see where the legendary explorers traversed the land at the Lewis and Clark National Historical Park. It features trails along the Columbia River and Pacific Coast. Afterwards, discover the waterways a little more unconventionally in a kayak on guided tours from park rangers. Golfers, you won’t want to miss hitting a round at Bandon Dunes Golf Resort, whose motto is “golf as it was meant to be.” Spot wildlife as you gaze across the roaring waves.

Mt. Hood and the Columbia River Gorge

Only an hour east of Portland, Mt. Hood stands at a towering 11,245 feet, the highest elevation in the state, and is still an active volcano. Its amazing slopes and graceful foothills mark the spot for nature lovers. Set off on hiking trails, go windsurfing, ski or snowboard, and afterward, cool off sailing or windsurfing on the mighty Columbia River.

Central Oregon

300 days of sun grace the land of Central Oregon. That means it’s almost always time to venture outside. Whether it’s for a half, full or multi-day trip, bring the crew whitewater rafting along the White Salmon, Grande Ronde, Rogue, Clackamas and Deschutes rivers. Smith Rock State Park lends sublime cliffs for rock climbers, beginner to expert. If you’re coming here in the summer, catch music stars like of Buddy Guy at the Oregon Zoo, or in the winter get ready to hit some of the best powder around at Hoodoo Ski Area, which is located atop Santiam Pass. For shoppers, there are great open-air shopping options like Cascade Village on Highway 97. Don’t get skimpy on souvenirs and self-gifts, because there’s no sales tax!

Eastern Oregon

Eastern Oregon is best described by its slowed-down and relaxed attitude on life. From Alpine-esque mountains to ghosts town to deserts, it is perfect place to get back in touch with nature. Make your way to Hells Canyon, the deepest river gorge in North America, to discover abundant wildlife. Go hiking or horseback riding at the foot of its immense mountains, or drive across the 59-mile loop of Steens Mountains for a look at a peak created from internal pressure along the fault line, and while there you may even catch a glimpse of wild horses. Don’t miss a visit to the Alvord Desert where you can take a dip in the hot springs.

Southern Oregon

Home to the deepest lake in the nation, Crater Lake, Southern Oregon is truly a sight to behold. The lake is 1,932 feet deep and has a stunning royal blue hue. Go camping with friends or family along its shores. In the winter, Crater Lake boasts a whopping 533 inches of snowfall a year, which is powder perfect for snowshoeing or cross-country skiing.The southern part of Oregon is also known for its temperate climate. It is ideal for world-renowned fishing and river rafting. Swirl your glasses with varietals that led the Abacela Winery to win “Oregon Winery of the Year,” only a short path from Pacific Highway 5. It has everything from high deserts to valleys to lakes. You can even trek through the marble cave at Oregon Caves National Monument.

One of the most bike-friendly places on the planet, the Beaver State has a nature nook for everyone. For snowboarding, beer-tasting, hiking and 360 degrees of outdoor livin’, come explore Oregon for yourself.
