Activities & Restaurants

Social-SUP-Night-Tumalo-Creek1Mt Bachelor is Oregon’s best ski resort, but winter sports are just a small part of the story. Spring and Summers are a delight in Bend. Only a few strides out the front door of the condo is the scenic Deschutes River Trail (map) an ideal nature hike. There is always plenty to see and do along the Deschutes. If you’re feeling frisky, Tumalo Creek Kayak & Canoe offers kayak/canoe and stand-up paddle lessons. Or try yoga on the river really! When you’re done splashing, saunter over Bend’s Old Mill and shop or dine in the many stores and riverfront restaurants.

If you’re in the mood to explore, take a short drive over to Tumalo State Park (about 5 miles from property) and hike along the creek to the waterfall. Great place for fishing, hiking or a relaxing picnic. Bring your camera. Fall colors here are amazing!

Speaking of photo-worthy scenery… you might enjoy a half-hour drive northward to Smith Rock and the Crooked River. The scenery there is quite special. You may even see Chris Boyce (the Falcon and the Snowman) flying his amazing Gyr-Falcon Higher Power along the jagged peaks of Smith Rock. Stop in Redmond along the way for lunch or dinner. Downtown Redmond has more than a few dining options for every taste/budget.

Gym, Sports & Fitness

The Athletic Club of Bend is just a 500 yard drive (less if you walk the path) down the hill from Mt Bachelor Village Resort. No excuses! Great place for your weight or aerobic workout. Indoor and outdoor pool for your lap swim. Many cardio-fitness machines and tennis and basketball courts aplenty.
