Oakridge resort is well suited to any kind of traveler. Upon my friends and I arrival, the staff were very wonderful and welcoming. They checked us in an adequate amount of time with great ease. Our accomidations fit four of us comfortably. We had two bedrooms with a full kitchen, washer and dryer. The rooms were very well kept and clean.
Oakridge is the perfect place to relax and enjoy the panaromic views of the surrounding mountains. My friends and I really enjoyed sitting and relaxing in the seperate spa pools after our day in the sun. On the otherhand, the lap pool was great to have in case of feeling the urge to swim a few laps. I had the joy of recieving a wide array of relaxation and healing therapies to suit my every need in the day spa that was inside the resort.
The restaurant had spectacular food that could cater to anyones dining needs. With the relaxing atmosphere, all we needed to do was soak in the beautiful surrounding views. The servers were great and were able to help us when needed.
The only issue (if I would call it an issue) was that the resort itself sits about 5 minutes away from town driving. You could walk, but time would need to be allowed. Overall, we had a wonderful time and cannot wait for our next trip back.
