The company I work for has had our annual Manager's Retreat at this place the past two years in a row. What a fantastic place! The rooms have different names and have no tv's or phones, but plenty of books to read (and Wifi so you don't feel completely cut off from the outside world). There are journal books in each room where guests can write comments about their stays, and it was fun to come back this year, and read some of our own reviews from last year! The staff treated us so well - - and the food --- FANTASTIC!!! The steaks melt in your mouth, the desserts were to die for, and although dinner service was a little slow, it was worth the wait (and we were a pretty large party). The river running by adds a nice amibiance to the experience.
I was a little amibivilent the first time we were told we were going there, as it was chosen as an alternative to Kah-nee-tah, where'd we'd grown tired of. Let me say, there was NO comparison. Lovely place, even though we were there during the off-season.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Imperial River Company isn’t just a place; it is a state of mind. And our motto proves it.…Actively relaxing on the banks of the Deschutes River. Whether you have come out for the whitewater rafting, fishing, hunting, hiking, cycling, scenery, or to just get away from the big city for a weekend of relaxation and sun (we average 300 days of sun a year), Imperial River Company can more than help. Nestled directly on the banks of the Deschutes River, we are ideally situated to provide you with a relaxing environment and scenic views of the river with over 1/4 mile of river frontage. While we may be known for our beautiful lodge, scrumptious food, professionally guided whitewater rafting trips, and pheasant and chukar hunting adventures, we strive to provide more. Excellent service and a relaxing atmosphere make your stay with us that much more enjoyable. Look no further than our open-flame fire pit in our courtyard during the evenings where our guests relax and talk of the day’s successes. Come out and enjoy the best that Central Oregon has to offer. ... more less
