We rented a cabin here through SniqueAway for three nights. My husband called ahead an secured us a better view, higher up on the butte, with a hot tub. So, it's worth it to be nice.
1. This is a drive from Bend and Mount Bachelor, definitely not walking distance. Just FYI.
2. It's a beautiful drive through the entry, up past some small (stocked) ponds and under a walking bridge to the main lodge. There are some rooms here too, I think adults only--I didn't see them. There's a casual dining place in this building, a resident dog, a library, roaring fireplace.
3. There are other buildings surrounding--the fitness center, a spa, fancier dining place. It looks like a kid-friendly place for the summer, with playgrounds and pools.
4. The equestrian center is down the road, closed in winter.
5. The cabins are through a gated entry. It looked like some were owned, some rented out by the property (I can't confirm this). There are walking and biking paths as well.
6. There's a golf course on property.
7. Our cabin had a reserved covered parking space.
8. The cabin was beautifully appointed--leather sofa and chairs, granite counters and full kitchen (refrigerator, oven, stove, microwave), all cutlery and pots/pans you'd need to prepare a meal, dining room table and chairs, TV, DVD, stereo system. There was even a stackable washer and dryer. The bedroom was comfortable, small closet, another TV, desk and chair, nice linens. The bathroom had a large tub, tiled shower, nice toiletries.
9. Outside deck had a grill, hot tub. We saw some wildlife, birds galore, bunnies everywhere.
10. Only downside? Neighboring cabins threw a party, which was loud--but the security staff did come by.
