|Black Butte Ranch, Oregon
|Until the turn of the century, Central Oregon's Black Butte Ranch was a land seen only by Indian tribes, trappers, land surveyors, cattlemen, gold prospectors, and a family whose 160-acre homestead was used as a summer residence. At the dawn of the 20th century, the ranch was used as the headquarters for a livestock company. After efforts to drain the vast swamplands found here failed, the land was sold eventually to owners who wanted to preserve the land. In 1970, they agreed to sell their 1,280 acres to a lumber company in Bend, which promised to develop the land while preserving the natural beauty as much as possible. In 1971 the Black Butte Ranch resort opened and now you can enjoy the beauty of this mountain wonderland too.
Today, Black Butte Ranch is one of the best places to stay in Central Oregon. With its spectacular views, comfortable accommodations, and things to see and do for the entire family. Located just 10 miles west of Sisters on Hwy 20.
Black Butte offers two championship 18-hole golf courses, 19 tennis courts and several swimming pools. Its golf courses have received high ratings from "Golf Digest" and if you have never played golf in Oregon, you are in for a real treat; the fairways are lush and the greens are smooth. There are also opportunities for tennis, canoeing, jogging, horseback riding, fishing, biking, and hiking, on the Resort property. Each of the swimming pools has a playground and there is a large recreation center with daytime and evening activities for children and teenagers. You'll have lots of territory to hike and explore in the Cascade Range, Mt. Washington, Mt. Jefferson, and Three-Fingered Jack Mountain. The area is also home to the Wizard Falls Fish Hatchery, the Anderson Llama Ranch, and the MacKensie Pass Lava Fields. Farther to the east is the town of Bend and the Oregon High Desert. This area is also home to many fine shops and restaurants in which you can spend your evenings and relax. In fact, the ranch's very own Restaurant at Black Butte Ranch has been given an award of excellence.
