Tucked away to the west, just outside of the city of Redmond, lies Eagle Crest, a family-friendly resort in the stunning Oregon High Desert. Outdoor adventures and beautiful scenery await, promising a trip you'll never forget.
Where is Eagle Crest?
Situated right on the east slopes of Cline Butte and near the Deschutes River, Eagle Crest boasts over 300 days of sunshine each year and an annual rainfall of less than nine inches! Wake up each morning to greet the scenic Cascade Mountain Range and soak up the rays from the bright Central Oregon sun.
Eagle Crest Activities
For golfing fanatics, there's nothing better than a prime location right on the green. When you're not out on the links, you can sit back on deck of your golf getaway, mojito in hand, and watch others play through from a few feet away. The resort has three golf courses - the Ridge Course, the Resort Course, and the smaller Challenge Course. Weather permitting, the Ridge Course is even open through the winter, so you can hit the green no matter what time of year. Hikers, walkers, and joggers will find much to love as well. Eagle Crest has over 11 miles of trails to explore right within the resort, including an easy, picturesque 1.5 mile trail that follows along the Deschutes River.
Holidays in Eagle Crest are truly magical! StarFest is a popular, free light display that runs from Thanksgiving through New Year's Day, occurring every winter. Twinkling holiday lights are illuminated each evening from 5:30 p.m. until 9:30 p.m. along a scenic one mile drive through the resort. Of course, winter is also ski season in Central Oregon, and from here you are perfectly situated to take advantage of the slopes. World-class alpine skiing, snowboarding, Nordic skiing, and snowshoeing can all be found within an hour's drive at Mt. Bachelor Ski Resort and Hoodoo Mountain Resort. No matter when you plan your vacation, one thing is sure - remember to bring your sunglasses!
Day Trips from Eagle Crest
Outside of the resort, hundreds of miles of trails await your discovery. Make the short drive to Terrebonne to visit Smith Rock State Park and explore the Crooked River, and maybe even try your hand at rock climbing. At just under an hour away, Tumalo Falls is home to an easily reachable, 89-foot breathtaking waterfall that makes a great day trip for the whole family. And if hiking isn't on the agenda, a stop in bustling Bend for shopping, breweries, and galleries may just be in order, but be sure to also visit the High Desert Museum to learn more about the history, culture, arts, and wildlife of the Pacific Northwest's High Desert plateau.
When life's been busy and you need a break, there's nowhere better to get away from it all than at this ideal resort in Central Oregon!
