Sunriver is a world of its own where there are more bikes and deer than cars and chaos. Tranquil, scenic and thoroughly enjoyable from the beginning of this mini trip.

Starting at Sunset Lodging Village 5 the vacation was perfect. A two night, three day escape was perfect even if just from Bend! Staying in Goldfinch #11 was such a treat. A quiet, treed cul-de-sac with easy access to the bike trails, a quick ride to the SHARC and just seconds away from the river.

What to do while in Sunriver? Choosing is, to be honest, a slightly overwhelming process. The SHARC is something not to miss. Great fun for kids and adults alike with water slides, the lazy river and pools for all ages. Biking is by far the best mode of transportation in Sunriver with paths running throughout the village, the car never left the garage.

At the marina in Sunriver the menu of activities is vast.  From floating the river, to paddle boarding to kayaking. What a picturesque spot with panoramic views, an array of wildlife to be spotted and quiet nooks to picnic in or even margaritas to be enjoyed at Holas. A few steps away from the cocktails and water sports are the Stables at Sunriver.  Horseback trails meandering around the river and through the property give yet another perspective of this fantastic resort.

And golf….well golf is definitely in the air at Sunriver. Crosswater, honored by Golf Digest as one of the top 100 courses in America, certainly lives up to the world class expectations.

After a long hard day of leisure, cold beer and good food is a must.  The Brewhouse delivers. Fried avocado as a starter, crab and artichoke melt and the SBC IPA fish and chips were all a delight and of course don't forget the outstanding craft beer! Goodies ice cream for dessert followed by a bike ride home to work it all off is a perfect way to end any Sunriver evening.

The bad part about Sunriver? Leaving!
