While the large destination resorts in central Oregon get the lion's share of attention, there are a few smaller resorts that also have a lot to offer.
Mount Bachelor Village Resort (el. 3,800') is located in Bend (zip code 97702) overlooking the Deschutes River just south of Broken Top Golf Club and southeast of Tetherow. Amenities include a fitness center, tennis courts, outdoor pool (open March - October), outdoor Jacuzzi (open year around), 5,000 square feet of flexible meeting/banquet space, 3,000 square feet of covered exterior space, a business center, and spa. Additionally, the resort maintains a relationship with The Athletic Club of Bend (located next door to the resort) that owners and guests can enjoy complimentary usage of.
Seventh Mountain Resort (formerly The Inn Of The 7th Mountain, el. 4,000') is located in the Deschutes National Forest, several miles south of Mount Bachelor Village Resort just outside of Bend, on Century Drive towards Mt. Bachelor. It dates to the early 1970s and includes 200+ condominiums on just over 200 acres in Bend's 97702 zip code. Amenities include two outdoor heated pools, three outdoor hot tubs, 18-hole mini golf course, 8-hole disc golf course, mountain bike pump track and skill building area, basketball courts, horseshoes, sand volleyball, a seasonal outdoor ice rink, and bike rentals. Seventh Mountain Resort is adjacent to Widgi Creek Golf Club with which it maintains a relationship. Both overlook a section of the Deschutes River that has been designated a National Wild & Scenic River.
Lake Creek Lodge & Resort (el. 2,975') occupies 80 acres in the Deschutes National Forest north of Black Butte near the community of Camp Sherman and the Metolius National Wild & Scenic River. The main Lodge includes a recreation room (with ping pong, foosball, and a board games), a great room (with wood-burning fireplace, flat screen TV, historical album & books), complimentary Wi-Fi & guest computer station, and dining via an onsite restaurant & cafe. Additional amenities include a seasonally heated pool (Memorial Day through Labor Day), horseshoes, a children’s play area, basketball & tennis Courts, badminton, volleyball, croquet, and a one-acre fishing pond stocked with rainbow trout & crayfish. Both indoor and outdoor venues are available for meetings and special events. Fractional (time-share) ownership in the recently designed & built Lake Creek Lodge Cabins is occasionally available. Lake Creek Lodge & Resort is part of the 97730 zip code.
There are a number of resorts & lodges in the area that offer accommodation, dining, and other amenities, but they do not offer real estate at this time. However, you can use the general search function on this website to see available properties near any of them. I have listed a few of the more well-known examples below:
