Meetings and Weddings
"This will be our sixth year working with Sunriver, and we couldn’t be happier. The professionalism of your staff and their attention to detail helps make our event successful. Whenever we have a need, all we hear from your folks is “that’s not a problem”. It is also nice to see many of the same faces year after year. You employee retention speaks volumes to how they are treated by management. "

"Don't be fooled by the misperception that getting to Sunriver is difficult - it's part of the adventure! It's true that many travelers will have to take a quick connecting flight to get to the Bend/Redmond Airport, but the ride is only ---- minutes long. Passengers can use this time to take in the phenomenal views flying over the gorgeous Pacific Northwest. Once you land, the drive to the resort only gets better - the scenery is simply breathtaking.
Gems like Sunriver are rarely close to the hustle and bustle of urban life and airports. If you're looking for a little slice of paradise, make the trip - you won't be disappointed!"

"Sunriver Resort is a truly unique and remarkable experience. The Bend, Oregon area is breathtaking with its natural beauty while providing meeting attendees an oasis from the ordinary and convention-style hotels they can get accustomed to. The staff goes above and beyond with exceptional service. Despite the remote location, it is easily accessible through a convenient connection in Denver or Seattle. For my program, about 250 people traveled from all over the United States to reach Sunriver Resort and they really enjoyed the location."

"First, your meeting planner was an absolute dream. She made my job so much easier and helped me with our last minute need for meeting space the last day of our conference. All of the staff was very helpful and easy to work with. The meeting space was very attractive and I heard many favorable remarks."
"Overall, we had a very positive experience and will definitely look at Sunriver Resort for upcoming meetings."
Meeting - Schnitzer Steel
"This was the second year I worked with your Conventions staff. They are great!"
Meeting - CU Portland
"Sunriver Resort is a superb facility in a superb location. Your staff morale and helpfulness put it right over the top. Our two dinners, at the High Desert Museum and in the Great Hall, were absolutely smashing!"
Meeting - Oregon Independent College Association
"My experience at Sunriver Resort exceeded expectations. The entire staff was exceptional."
Meeting - OHSU
"Having our conference in Sunriver was fabulous. The property, food, professionalism and 'on the spot' detail oriented staff surpassed any resort I have worked with. When all was said and done the NPs said they want to return to Sunriver. Not only were our speakers, resort and food great, the weather was the best and we could not have asked for anything better. All in all it was a winner!"
Dove Canyon, CA
"Sunriver Resort is always great! The properties rented out by the Lodge have always been top notch in terms of cleanliness, comfort, and over enjoyment. We tell everyone about Sunriver Resort and this time even brought some friends with us who hadn’t been to Sunriver Resort before. Now they too are converts! Keep up the great work!"
I actually don't know where to begin! If you are considering a family reunion or just a family getaway at Sunriver Resort, LOOK NO FURTHER!! Sunriver was the PERFECT place for our family reunion with 40 people ranging in age from 4 months to 82 years old.
From our first conversation with Josee Hennane, sales manager, we knew we had found a hidden gem. Every detail (and you can imagine how many there were), was addressed professionally and efficiently. Our family came from New York, Florida, Atlanta and Colorado with many "needs" from dietary restrictions to babysitting issues, and activities that needed to be appropriate for all age ranges, etc. I can honestly say that every family member left with only the fondest of memories of our week at Sunriver.
NOTHING was ever a problem! Chris Harrison, Convention Service Manager, did an outstanding job at meeting every one of our requests and needs. We have many family members in the hotel and restaurant business and they were extremely impressed with Chris and all the staff we came in contact with at Sunriver. Chris helped us plan activities for 7 days for 40 people - not an easy task!
There is so much to do at Sunriver and the only problem is that you probably won't have enough time to experience everything. We utilized the spa which has great classes (I personally loved Yoga by the River and the Core Class) and state-of-the-art equipment. Many of the family members enjoyed spa services from massages to manicures and pedicures and they only had wonderful comments. Most of the family rented bikes which made it easy for people to get around this beautiful resort. The free shuttle service provided transportation around the resort and was always available when needed. We took advantage of golf, tennis, paddle boarding, rafting, putt putt golf, swimming in the pool as well as the new SHARC water recreation facility. Every activity was terrific!
Our accommodations were outstanding. We rented five privately-owned homes that were spread out in a small area near the lodge. Each house had its own personality and all of them were in wonderful condition and worked out perfectly for our family.
I could continue to rave about Sunriver, but here is the bottom line - we have had a family reunion every 5 years for the past 40 years and I can honestly say that Sunriver was one of the best places we've stayed!
-Buchwald Family Conclave
"Thank you for making our stay at Sunriver such a memorable experience. Every one loved it. Our "lodge" was perfect. The food fantastic. You really made it very easy for us. we feel spoiled - which, of course, we are. Thank you and we shallreturn!
"Our entire family reunion, all 75 of us, were very impressed with Sunriver Resort and its staff. Great to offer free shuttles, nice friendly drivers. Highly recommend Sunriver Resort to friends and future family reunions. Thank you!!!"
"Greatest family destination ever! I just can't say enough about Sunriver Resort. This was our second visit (the first was in 2006), and both times, my expectations were exceeded in every area. The rooms/lodges/condos are immaculate and very comfortably furnished. Plan to bring your own bikes, or pay to rent them there - it's worth every penny. Once we parked our car on arrival, we didn't drive again until we checked out - everything we wanted to do was in biking distance (all on paved trails, navigable with young children in tow). However, if you did run out of resort-associated activities - though I can't imagine how - there are tons more activities (Lava Lands, Bend/Sisters, Mt. Bachelor) in the immediate vicinity. Within Sunriver Resort, everyone we met at the hotel and in the village was helpful and friendly. If your family likes to bike, hike, walk/run, swim, play tennis or golf, paddle or float the river, ride horses, play at the park, visit a nature center, shop, or eat, this is the destination for you!quot;
"This was our first time to Sunriver Resort (and Oregon) and we were blown away! What an amazing property. The rooms, spa, food, service - everything was incredible. We really felt like we were miles away from everything but yet just a few minutes from Bend and Mt. Bachelor. We can't wait to come back next year."
Grass Valley, CA
"So many times we travel and pay a high price for not a lot in return. This is not the case for the River Lodges Guestrooms. You provide a beautiful, relaxing environment for a reasonable price. It is one of our favorites."
"We LOVE Sunriver Resort. From the moment we arrived, we were greeted with energetic staff and friendly faces. We can’t say enough good things about this place. Sunriver Resort is the best - hands down!"
"Definitely the nicest resort our family has ever stayed in. The food and lodging were wonderful. Thanks for a wonderful stay!"
Vacation Homes and Condominiums
"Thank you for such a perfectly wonderful time! It more than met our expectations, and I am terminally spoiled for anything less. We stayed in one of your rental houses. It was perfectly equipped, restful, homey, private, non-scheduled, non-hectic, ... perfect! We'll be back."
"We rented one of your vacation homes for one week after being advised by a member of your Reservation Staff. The home could not have been better for our family vacation. We GREATLY appreciate the accurate and informative information that we were provided in comparing a number of homes available for rent. Please extend our gratitude to your Reservations Staff."
La Canada, CA
"We LOVED the private home we rented this year at Sunriver Resort. It was so nicely furnished and had so many amenities that we couldn't have asked for a better place to stay. On all three of our visits, we have found Sunriver Resort's staff and facilities to be exceptional."
Rocky River, OH
Sage Springs Spa
"The Sage Springs Spa was the nicest spa I've ever been to. Everyone was really friendly and no one was stuffy at all. I loved the hot tub and the relaxation room. All of your staff was helpful and friendly. People went out of their way to make sure we had everything we needed. I was very impressed. My kids absolutely loved Sunriver Resort.
"I used the services at the spa. The masseuse was exceptional. She more than met my expectations. She was friendly, yet very professional. I felt more than comfortable. I truly enjoyed this experience. I was totally rejuvenated and felt wonderful. Thanks."
"We came for the Christmas "Traditions" and were very pleased and impressed. We participated in the cookie decorating, ceramic paint, sled rides, elf tuck, Santa visit. It was so festive. You really thought of everything. We will definitely come back this time next year. Thank you for wonderful memories!!"
"Our family, and in particular our ten year old daughter, have embraced Sunriver Resort's Traditions programs over the last five years. I can't begin to express my appreciation for how you and others have contributed to the life long memories of Christmas of our daughter. All of your efforts are deeply appreciated."
"What a great fly-in destination! It was an easy, picturesque trip from Palo Alto in my Mooney 201. There's an instrument approach (two, actually) to the mile-long runway. Gas is reasonable, either self-serve or from the truck. It's a short walk from the airport to the lodge and the resort is self-contained, so you don't need a car while you're there. I'm already looking for an excuse for my next visit."
