Experience serenity and the great outdoors in modern luxury in a gorgeous Brasada Ranch vacation rental. One of gorgeous Central Oregon's
premier resorts and best-kept secrets, you'll escape the crowds you are likely to see at more sought-after resort destinations, such as Black Butte and the popular Sunriver Resort
Where is Brasada Ranch?
Nestled on a vast expanse of high-desert plains just eight miles east of Redmond, you'll enjoy awe-inspiring views of the Cascade Mountain Range accompanied by the sweet smell of sage. The outdoor mecca of Bend lies 25 miles southeast for an easy day trip, and the rock-climbing capital, Smith Rock State Park, is only a 17-mile drive. 11 miles to the east is Prineville, where you'll enjoy a small-town feel, as well as awesome fishing and swimming nearby. For a similar resort experience, you might consider our vacation rentals in the beautiful resort of Eagle Crest
, as well.
Brasada Ranch Amenities
Brasada Ranch features a myriad of activities, ranging from fun to leisure, to please every person in your group. Get in touch with your inner cowboy by going horseback riding at the equestrian center, or play a full 18-holes on the most scenic golf course of your life with the Cascades shimmering perpetually on the horizon.
A state-of-the-art athletic center features a wide array of workout equipment, tennis courts, a sand volleyball court, steam rooms, and complimentary daily fitness classes. There are also two outdoor pools, a waterslide, and an indoor lap pool. If you need a break from the kids, send them to the Hideout, where they'll enjoy game tables, a climbing wall, a basketball court, TVs, and structured weekly programs.
For outdoor fun, you can check out lawn games to play with the family, rent bikes to ride on scenic trails, or get some fishing gear to try and catch your own dinner. If you aren't successful, the Range Bar & Grill is an exceptional backup, serving farm-to-table fare that has earned a high rank among food-loving Oregonians. After a long day, get some much-deserved relaxation at the full-service spa before retiring to your luxurious rental.
Day Trips from Brasada Ranch
Aside from the stellar amenities Brasada Ranch offers, another major appeal is its convenient location. Nearby, you'll find any adventure you're looking for - whether you want to climb or hike the unique basalt spires at Smith Rock, fish in the Crooked River, or spend the day at a glassy glacial lake off the Cascade Lakes Highway, it's all within driving distance and easy to return to the comfort of your vacation home.
A fun day trip might be heading into downtown Bend
, cooling off with a float down the Deschutes River, then touring some of the couple-dozen microbreweries in town. For more adrenaline-fueled fun, go swimming and cliff-jumping at Steelhead Falls a bit west of Smith Rock, or face your fears with the tallest bungee jump in the United States at the Crooked River Bridge in Peter Skene Ogden State Park.
If you're happier browsing boutiques and dancing to live music, pay a visit to the charming town of Sisters
about 30 miles away. You might even catch the Folk Festival in early September, which is a real hoot! In winter, the powdery slopes of Mt. Bachelor are just a 45-mile drive, easily manageable with the proper vehicle.
Whether you're planning your next family vacation, looking for an idyllic place to host your wedding, or just need a comfortable place to return to after exciting outdoor adventures, you'll find it all at our vacation rentals in Brasada Ranch!
