Perhaps one of the best known areas in Central Oregon, popular with home buyers and visitors alike, is Sunriver, a sprawling destination resort and residential community. Offering year-round activities, a multitude of homes and condominiums, and the Sunriver Resort, this 3,500 acre planned development is a sought after getaway.  Conveniently located just over 16 miles from Bend, Sunriver is set in the foothills of the Cascade Mountains and enjoys 300 days of sunshine with mild summer temperatures, fluffy snow in the winter, and endless year round outdoor activities.  With over 4,000 privately owned residences all at a variety of price points and a population of 1,700 permanent residents, here is where homeowners and guests enjoy golf courses, 31 tennis courts, 37 miles of biking trails, hiking and walking paths, rafting, unbeatable fishing, swimming and so much more. The Sunriver Resort is the nucleus of this community, providing a variety of luxury homes, condos and cabins for rent, a full day spa, and a myriad of activities all while offering a unique Oregon vacation experience.  

Like Bend and its surrounding communities, Sunriver homes are designed to blend in with the natural environment. However, Sunriver also offers a portfolio of residences to suit potential residents at every stage of their life. It also lists a range of luxury vacation homes for sale as well as  more affordable homes which can start at  $150,000  for a one bedroom, one bath condo, making this area attractive to those eager to purchase a Central Oregon residence. Restaurants are plentiful as well as shopping, plus a host of sponsored activities throughout the year making this a popular family friendly getaway.

Yet, as much as Sunriver is a vacation spot, it’s also a tight knit community for its permanent residents, especially since there is so much to do no matter what your interests may be.  While the population swells during the summer months, residents consider themselves lucky to soak in the beauty, centrality and proximity to outdoor activities twelve months out of the year.
