The Magic of Sunriver Resort

10 Reasons to Have a Very Happy Holiday at Sunriver Resort

The magic of the holiday season is just a little more magical at Sunriver Resort. Here, you’ll enjoy all the comforts of home – without all the added stress. Every moment of your winter getaway will be filled with seasonally themed activities, adventures and experiences. Check out the full schedule — and below, discover 10 reasons why Sunriver should be your holiday choice this year.

1. Santa’s Workshop
Located in the family friendly Fort Funnigan, Santa’s Workshop gives guests the chance to craft their very own holiday masterpieces, from fused-glass ornaments to hand-painted ceramic mugs. Whether you’re making a perfect stocking stuffer or a keepsake to remember your Sunriver holiday escape, it’s a fun, creative way to spend an afternoon. The hot cocoa bar is an added bonus …

2. Sleigh Rides
You know all the words to the old Christmas carol “Jingle Bells” – but have you lived it? Sunriver’s daily sleigh rides in December take you dashing through the snow in a one-horse open sleigh. It’s the ultimate winter adventure for the whole family.

3. Snowmobile Excursions
Maybe a sleigh ride isn’t quite enough of an adrenaline rush for you. No worries. Take a two- or four-hour snowmobile trip through snowy meadows and spectacular mountain terrain, guided by the backcountry experts at Central Oregon Adventures.

4. Holiday Spa Specials
Let’s face it: The holidays can be stressful. That’s why throughout the season Sage Springs Club & Spa is offering Sunriver guests a variety of indulgent, holiday-themed treatments that are sure to restore and rejuvenate. Try the supremely relaxing warm-stone Holiday Spice Massage or the Cinnamon Apple Facial, just right for dehydrated winter skin. Couples take note – the Holiday Escape For Two is a romantic side-by-side massage experience.

5. Gingerbread Junction
Sunriver’s annual Gingerbread Junction sees some truly amazing gingerbread creations in the resort’s Abbot Room.

6. Holiday Movie Series
Movie night! Cuddle up with your loved ones and enjoy some holiday cinema favorites (along with unlimited popcorn!). This year’s selections include A Christmas Story (Dec. 21), Elf (Dec. 22) and Frozen (Dec. 23).

7. Moonlight & Starlight Snowshoe Tours
Sunriver’s natural landscape is awe-inspiring year-round, but in the winter it takes on an otherworldly ambiance – especially at night. Under the moon and stars, Wanderlust Tours can take you on a snowshoeing adventure that you’ll never forget.

8. Classic Christmas Cuisine
Just because you’re not at home for the holidays doesn’t mean you won’t have a classic Christmas dinner with all the fixings. At Sunriver, you can choose from a variety of dining options on December 25th: an elaborate plated brunch at Carson’s American Kitchen (including a Bloody Mary cart and live music); resort guests can enjoy a festive Christmas dinner at the Grille at Crosswater; a feast fit for a king in the Great Hall; or traditional holiday fare for dinner at Carson’s.

9. Elf Tuck-Ins
What better way to end a magical winter day than with an Elf Tuck-In? On select nights throughout the holiday season, one of Santa’s helpers will read your kids a beloved Christmas story, sending them to sleep with visions of sugarplums dancing in their heads.

10. New Year’s Eve
Ring in 2018 in style! Start the evening off with a five-course meal at Carson’s American Kitchen and then head over to Twisted River Tavern to dance the night away with Precious Byrd, one of the most sought after bands in the Pacific Northwest! Their high energy and mix of dance/rock era hits will have you dancing into 2018. The party also includes delicious passed appetizers, party favors and a champagne toast.
