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.
