Sunriver has been the playground of the Pacific Northwest since 1968. Blessed with an average of 300 days of sunshine each year, many residents of the wetter side of the Cascades (and others living worldwide), have vacation homes here.

Over the years an active rental home program has developed with at least half a dozen property management companies offering vacation rentals in addition to owner-managed rentals. Sunriver vacation homes and condos can be found onthe internet, in magazines and in classified sections of newspapers throughout the West.
Located southwest of Bend near the base of the Cascade range, Sunriver's 

3,300-plus acres are bordered on the west by more than five miles of Deschutes River frontage and on the north by the Deschutes National Forest. The unique forest environment of ponderosa and lodgepole pine sits on the edge of the high desert to the east. Homes are painted in muted tones and common areas are managed to ensure a natural feel.

While a majority of Sunriver homes may be vacation retreats, our resident owners consider themselves the lucky ones. Experiencing all Sunriver has to offer on a daily basis can be the ultimate lifestyle choice for families or outdoor-loving active adults.

Visitors enjoy many of the same amenities that first lured our owners to this special place. World-class tennis and golf, miles of paved pathways, parks, aquatic facilities, paddling the Deschutes River, a nature center and observatory, airport, stables and a village filled with shops and restaurants.

Although summer is the most popular season for vacationers, Sunriver's proximity
to the slopes of Mt. Bachelor entice snow-riders to stay here in the winter. The more quiet, yet visually stunning autumn months are the favorites for many owners and visitors alike. Warm, crystal clear days on the golf course or bike trails are followed by crisp nights with the hint of wood smoke in the air.


If this is your introduction to Sunriver - welcome! 
We invite you to visit in person. Like many of our owners, 
your weekend or vacation might just turn into a lifetime! 

Sunriver is located on the grounds of the former Camp Abbot, a World War II training facility designed to train combat engineers in a simulated combat environment. The U.S. Army camp opened in 1942, but by June 1944 the camp was abandoned and most of the settlement was razed.[3]

The Officers' Club was spared and has been preserved and renovated and is now known as the "Great Hall", under management of Sunriver Resort. The name "Sunriver" was selected by developers John Gray and Donald V. McCallum. The initial condominiums were built in 1968 in conjunction with the completion of Sunriver Lodge, and in 1969 the master plan was completed and developers began selling lots.[4][5]

Sunriver was also the site of the pioneer Shonquest Ranch.[6] Sunriver post office was established on July 18, 1969, at the same time the public facilities were opened.[6]
