“Get away from the city”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 February 2012

My wife and I spent a long weekend at Brasada Ranch and found it to be just about perfect for us and our two dogs. Located about 15 miles outside of both Redmond and Bend with gorgeous views of the Cascade range, Brasada Ranch is a wonderful place to get away from it all and relax. If you love the outdoors, Brasada has hiking and biking trails, a challenging golf course, an equestrian center, a decent athletic center with outdoor pools, and is about an hour away from the best skiing in Oregon.

The cabins are very well furnished and fit in well with their high desert surroundings. We felt immediately at home when we walked in the door. A fireplace in the living room was great for taking off the chill after an excursion outside. The kitchen had a decent set of pots and pans for cooking our own meals, but it could have been a little better equipped with more spatulas and large spoons. The bathroom was spacious and luxurious with a stone tile shower and high quality fixtures. The king bed was very comfortable with a very firm mattress and a mountain of pillows.

The free WiFi worked well for most of the trip, although we ran into some sporadic problems with some devices such as our iPad while others seemed to work fine. There seemed to be a nice entertainment center in the main room and a TV in the bedroom, but we didn't make use of either. It would have been nice to have an iPod dock for the stereo, but our cabin didn't have one. Our friends' cabin did have a dock, though, so if you want one you may just need to ask ahead of time.

The staff at the resort were always friendly and helpful. We cooked for ourselves most of the time, but we had breakfast in the Ranch House restaurant one day and found it to be excellent with freshly squeezed juices and plenty to choose from. I'm sure we'll be back for another stay at Brasada Ranch the next time we come to Central Oregon.

Room Tip: Not all cabins have same floor plan so ask for one with a larger living room area.

Thank you so much for your review and the specific comments about our tremendous team. We are just finishing up renovations of the cabins, and very soon they will all have the iPod docs. Given your comments, our team is also currently reviewing opportunities for the kitchen utensils. We’re really glad that you had such a great time and look forward to seeing you again soon.

My husband took me to Brasada Ranch for my birthday weekend. As soon as we drove in, we knew we LOVED it. It felt so fantastic being in such a beautiful part of Oregon
and having all the facilities look so beautifully old world on the outside bit so modern and fresh on the inside. My perfect place. So perfect in fact, we put an offer in on a cabin the very next morning. We used to go to Sunriver pretty often as a family...not any more. This trumps Sunriver ten fold. We are so excited to have found such a perfect family destination. And I'm not kidding!!!

We are locals (live nearby in Bend) and booked an overnight stay at Brasada as a little mid-winter getaway. We can't get over how thoroughly delightful every aspect of our short stay was. The entire resort is first class -- from the sumptuously appointed cabins to the first-rate cuisine to the gracious and enthusiastic staff. The fine dining restaurant was closed for the off-season, but the casual restaurant was superb at both dinner and breakfast. We loved the sophisticated yet unpretentious western ranch aesthetic that is reflected everywhere on the property, and can't wait to come back in the warm weather months to enjoy the fabulous pools and outdoor recreation. This is a very special place - I can't recommend it enough.

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.

Room Tip: Ask for a cabin higher up on the butte, you'll get better views.

Like other reviewers we used to stay at Sunriver over the past years for summer golfing, hiking and winter skiing. As Sunriver has aged we wanted to find a new location for a couple getaway or a place to stay with our families. Brasada has it all, locatred outside of Bend but close enough for shopping and ammenities. We have stayed in the 4 rooms in the main building which are fabulous. We have also stayed with families in the great cabins spread throughout the property. We highly recommend Brasada with its quiet star filled nights, great golf and fun pool.

We stayed at Brasada Ranch over New Year's and had a fantastic time. We had a two-bedroom cabin that was just fine for the five of us (the kids stayed in one bedroom and a sofa bed). The cabin was in excellent shape, and had privacy, spectacular views and a hot tub. We went skiing on New Year's Eve and Day at Mt. Bachelor. It was just under an hour each way, and we were happy to return to Brasada to relax, swim, eat and enjoy the peaceful beauty of the place. Although quite new, the resort has a charming rustic Western elegance.

On the days we couldn't ski, Brasada offered a wide range of amenities and activities even in winter -- a great indoor pool with an adjacent, large outdoor hut tub, a large kid activities center, hikes through the scenic acreage surrounding the property. In summer (we were there last July as well), add golf, tennis, an expansive outdoor pool, horseback riding and nearby rafting, kayaking, mountain biking and rock climbing. Plus terrific food in both a relaxed setting at the Ranch House and more upscale fare at the casually elegant Range.

One tip to consider. Be sure to shop ahead of time for nights when you want to cook in at your cabin. The flip side of the outstanding seclusion and privacy of Brasada's location is that the nearest groceries are 15-20 minutes away.

Bottom line -- you'll never run out of great things to do at Brasada, unless you just want to kick back and enjoy the quiet beauty of the high desert.

Room Tip: The gorgeous view of the Cascade peaks is to the west and northwest. Ask for a cabin with a clear v...

We have stayed at all the major resorts on Central Oregon and Brasada is our favorite. Beautiful views, quiet and first rate amenities. Almost don't want to write this review.....want to keep it to ourselves :-)
