About 30-minutes outside Bend in central Oregon, the resort community of Brasada Ranch is perfect for a outdoor activity tailored honeymoon. Set on nearly 2,000 pristine acres, the property features Cascade Mountain views from its rooms, suites and cabins.
Done up in rustic chic style, we love the suites that feature comfy king beds, vaulted wood ceilings, deep soaking tubs and furnished balconies. If you want more privacy, the cabins are larger and spread apart from each other. Some even have private hot tubs. Brasada Ranch is also luxurious without being outrageously expensive, offering a more affordable destination honeymoon option.
The ranch is home to the 18-hole, semi-private Brasada Canyons Golf Course. Designed by Jim Hardy and Oregonian Peter Jacobsen, it is known as “the best 18 views in Oregon” for its panoramic mountain views at every hole. The fairways here are pristine and the greens are fast. Best of all, no two holes run parallel on this course, which means each feels very private and offers a distinct view. There is also a five acre practice facilities with a two-tiered driving range, short game area and putting green.
If you’re more into riding horses than swinging golf clubs (or maybe you enjoy both), there is also an equestrian club on the property with curated horseback riding experiences. Lessons can be organized and there are more than 900 trails to explore.
End your day with a soak in their hot tub or by the fire-pit. The onsite Range Restaurant and Bar serves fresh, seasonal farm-to-table fare designed to fuel well-being.
