Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 19 July 2012

But we will. We thoroughly enjoyed our 3 day stay here. We rented a beautiful 3 bedroom cabin\house with large en suite bedrooms all with King size beds, tv's and gas fireplaces, a well equipped kitchen, high tech stereo\tv system, covered outdoor patio and hot tub. The view of The Sisters was so relaxing - It was perfect for 3 couples.

The property theme was the same as far as individual houses\cabins and judging from that we believe any other rentals would be of the same quality and amentities but possibly different sizes. We did not stay in the Hotel.

We had most of our meals at our place but we did enjoy a dinner and breakfast at the Ranch House restaurant where the faire was very good and the service was even better. Everyone at Brasada was very friendly.

Two pools ~ inside and out ~ were great with the slide, hot tubs and water features. They even have lifeguards.

Though we wanted to we did not golf at the beautiful course due to a tourney going on and also because the price was a little steep for us -- but Juniper Golf Course in Redmond and MeadowLakes in Prineville both of which are challenges are within 30min.
We have stayed at SunRiver and Black Butte both of which are nice family areas but are too crowded for us.
We came, we stayed, we loved it!!.. We will be back

The Good - Immaculately kept - the grounds, the cabins, the golf course all common areas are prefect. Love the architecture - nicely done. The place is big enough that is "swallows" guests - we were constantly told that the resort was full but rarely saw others - we didn't hang out at the pool, but the golf course and the restaurants seemed vacant when we went - which was nice. The equestrian center - out of this world - my wife continued to call it the "Four Seasons" for horses. If you make your way down there you'll see - we rode two days, great guides - very well mannered "kids" - you'd hope to your raise your own like these two girls that led us. The cabins had everything in them including washer dryers - beware no spices/foil/napkins, etc. so bring/buy everything you need food wise - all the pots and pans you need.

The Not so Good: the service at times was lacking - tough I'm sure to find talent way out in the middle of nowhere - a five star resort and service this is not. While very friendly and willing to help they and the resort lack the little things that could truly set this place apart. No bell service, no assistance with finding your cabin or instructing you on the features - and there are many A/V items, lighting, gas grill, fireplace, W/D, etc. that could have used a quick 5 min. tour - not a tough thing to offer. The service in the "formal" restaurant was poor at best - under staffed - not the servers fault I don't think they have the proper mgt. to direct the staff. The food was OK - nothing spectacular but acceptable. The "activities coordinators" - the two girls working the desk were rather clueless and frankly uninterested in helping us - serious attention should be given to this area as we would have loved more ideas/suggestions on things to do but finally gave up asking them and figuring it out on our own.

We'd like to come back - we enjoyed our stay and think the service can only get better - if you are thinking this is a five star property don't - go with the attitude that the service isn't going to match the property and you'll have a great time.

Room Tip: Ask for a cabin that over looks the golf course with nothing in front of it - there aren't many...

We love Brasada Ranch! Luxurious cabins, unbelievable views, incredible golf, excellent food, relaxing atmosphere, gorgeous pools. We have traveled to resorts all over the world and pound for pound Brasada Ranch is the best! Just returned from our second trip here and our family (and extended family) have decided to make this a yearly tradition. We visited over the 4th of July and the activities, food, and staff were all wonderful. I can't say enough good things about this resort and would recommend it to anyone!

Room Tip: All of the cabins are top notch. You won't believe how nice they are!

Brasada is a perfect place to rejuvinate, relax, eat wonderful food and have fun. We were visiting with family ranging from 3 to 83 years old and everyone thought it was a great vacation destination. Since it is quite aways from town, it was nice that there were two different styles of resturant to choose from. Both had delicious, interesting items on the menu and the children loved that we could make our own s'mores every night at the outdoor fire rings. Several of our group enjoyed the well manicured golf course. The pool area is great in that there are three different pools to enjoy. One for serious swimmers, one that is fairly shallow for children, and a third that is just fun for everyone~containing a variety of currents to swim in and a great slide. Two of us enjoyed a private horse back ride in the surrounding area behind the golf course. Our cabin was much larger and more comfortable than we had expected. The bedrooms were spacious and the beds extremely comfortable. We also had a large family area with a dinning/kitchen. It was like a home away from home. All of the staff were friendly and helpful. If you want a time to relax and enjoy the big sky at night, this is definitely a resort worth checking out!

Room Tip: We stayed in a two bedroom cabin. It far exceeded our expectations! Large, comfortable living room...

The staff were friendly and attentive. We stayed at the pool all day, played at the beach volleyball court and relaxed while the kids played in the clubhouse game room. To top it off we had an amazing dinner at the grill. I highly recommend Brasada Ranch for a great family adventure!

Brasada is a great family get-away, tons of stuff for the kids (Amazing Pool and waterslide, game room with Wii, air hockey, video games, etc, basketball court, sand volleyball). We live in Central Oregon and Brasada is a perfect get-away or staycation. Super close and relaxation and fun as soon as you enter the gate. Let your mind wander and you could be in Cabo sipping Corona's! Or Pacifico on tap as it was!

Love this place! The views are amazing, the pool is the perfect temperature, golf course is fantastic, food is gourmet and we also love the outdoor fireplaces. We have stayed here a few times and each time Brasada Ranch exceeds our expectations. I recommend asking for a cabin with a hot tub - although there are hot tubs at the pool, it is great to end the night or start the day with a soak just out side your door. Also - if you are staying a few nights, bring something to grill. All the cabins have really nice gas BBQ grills and there is nothing like hanging out on your back deck in the sunshine enjoying the view. We have two children, 5 and 7 and they love the kids pool with slide and lazy river - they also love the kids hangout room with ping pong, air hockey, small climbing wall, puzzels, and other games. We also took advantage of Brasada's kids club one night and our kids made new friends, visited the horses and had a blast at their own little cookout! Great for a couples getaway too since they have a separate pool without the water slide that is great for lounging around without kids.

Room Tip: Ask for a hot tub and a view.

Thank you for taking the time to post your feedback about your stay at Brasada Ranch. We are glad that you and your children had such a great time. Our Cowboy Cookouts are very popular in the summer months and it is a great opportunity to enjoy great food, meet and experience the horses at the Equestrian Center and make some new friends. It sounds like they accomplished all three elements. Thank you for your recommendations and please come and see us again soon.
