“Great Family Vacation”
Reviewed June 16, 2014

My family and I are preparing for our fourth visit to Brasada Ranch. We all love it. It is peaceful, beautiful and fun. The food is generally excellent, the cabins are very well equipped, clean, and spacious. The kids love roaming around the property, hanging out in the kids center and spending countless hours in the pool. The pools are amazing.

Here are some suggestions to make Brasada even better

1.) The country music that is played incessantly at the restaurants drives my wife nuts. It is out of character with property as it seems hokey. A little variety would be nice. Nobody here has come here looking for a dude ranch

2.) The rental bike fleet is not well maintained. The bikes are barely good enough/safe enough for getting around the property

3.) The food choices at the pool area are very limited. I was also surprised that the smoothies served there are complete junk - and this is out of character with the excellent ingredients used in the restaurants. There appears to be no fresh fruit in these smoothies - rather they are some kind of sugary syrup blended with ice. I would happily pay more for a real fresh fruit smoothie.

If these three issue could be addressed, this place would be a grand slam for us.

We are headed there in a few weeks and can't wait!

Hello PLatigo,

Thank you very much for posting your comments about your previous stay with us. We sincerely appreciate your kind words and good suggestions. Since your last visit, we have made several changes that we believe have addressed your suggestions.

We currently have a new fleet of bikes in the Athletic Center that are all in very good condition.

Our new “Sundance Bar” just opened for the season at the Athletic Center offering an expanded pool side menu and all-natural smoothies made with real fruit. Additionally, our smoothie mixes include no artificial colorings, flavorings, preservatives or high fructose corn syrup.

Music throughout the property has been programmed to include a mix of Blues, Country, Country Rock and Contemporary music. It is programmed with different mixes by area of the Resort with tunes that are customized for each individual area such as the pool, restaurants, etc.

Thank you again for your comments. We look forward to seeing you again this year.

Sincerely,

Jeff

My husband and I booked a horseback riding tour with the ranch while on vacation in Bend. The Ranch is only about a 30 minute drive from downtown Bend so it was easy to get to. The location is absolutely gorgeous. We stopped briefly at the athletic center to signs some forms before heading down to the stables so didn't get to see much of the rest of the facilities, but what we did see was lovely. We were met at the stables by our guide, Jessica, who was just wonderful. She was very knowledgeable and made sure to explain everything clearly. As beginner riders, it was nice to have someone actually explain to us how to ride and why we do the things we do. We feel that she really catered the ride perfectly just for us and our skill level but she also didn't baby us. She was sure to ask if we wanted a very easy ride or whether we were up for something a little more challenging. We could also tell the the animals were very well cared for and respected. The views at the top of the trails were stunning and we'll be sure to remember the ride for a very long time. 5/5

Booked a three bedroom cabin for our wedding party and ceremony. The cabins are beautifully appointed and extremely clean. The views are fantastic and the staff could not have been more professional and accommodating. They did a wonderful job of making our special day even more so.

Room Tip: Try to book a newer cabin overlooking the 10th or 11th fairway.

The stay at Brasada was fabulous! The location in relationship to the equine stables is priceless. We did not have to worry about the horses and or require much time to get to the horses. The cabins and everything in them are first-class. I will be back and stay longer!

Brasada is an excellent resort located outside of Bend. The resort offers something for the entire family. There are trail rides, and a first class equestrian center. There is a fabulous spa on the property, a beautiful pool and golf course and first class restaurants. The cabins are all exquisite and the attention to detail makes for a very relaxing and wonderful family vacation spot.

It was an amazing experience! I have told a bunch of friends about it and plan on coming again next summer!! The golf course is top notch and all of the other amenities were great as well! We traveled with a group of 3 couples and all of the couples had nothing but positive feedback! I would recommend Brasada Ranch to all!

want an amazing venue to host your wedding? check out brasada. we were married here May 31st weekend and the entire three-day experience was amazing. i'll start by saying that i had been to the ranch on two work offsites in the past year. i knew about the amenities and amazing sunsets. what i didn't know was the quality and professionalism of those on the catering/banquet/group sales staff. Jen G., Jenn, Peder, and Debra made sure our wedding went off without a hitch and i have had so many of our guests tell us it was the BEST wedding they have ever been to. here are A FEW reasons why:

1. Accommodations: the cabins are spacious and classy. kept up. beautiful furniture, a full kitchen with utensils and such, stellar showers in every room. Fireplaces. each room also has outdoor entry access. if you are staying in the Ranch House suites, they are big and comfy as well...plus you have a great mountain view! the Barn and the Range areas on the property offer stellar views and spaces for your event. perfectly sized, perfectly maintained. oh, and they are QUIET. nothing beats sitting out on your porch, soaking in the views in silence. peaceful is an understatement.

2. Food: the food provided by the Brasada kitchen at both our reception and rehearsal dinner was so tasty. everyone loved it. food is super important at a wedding, and people remember if it was good or bad. all in all, we had SUCH delicious meals. (as the bride, i wish i had spent less time talking and more time eating!)

3. Activities: if you're planning on bringing a big group, brasada offers lots to do for all ages. horseback riding, bike riding, a basketball court, tennis courts, hikes, an awesome pool (with a waterslide!)...guarantee no one will be bored.

4. Staff: everyone here is so nice. there's no other way to say it. from the Ranch Hands who offer rides around the property to the bartender who worked our event...they are just nice people. they make you feel welcome and important. we couldn't have asked for a better staff to work our wedding day. (i even knocked over two glasses at our reception, shattering glass everywhere. within in instant, it was cleaned up without a complaint from the staff).

there's so much more i could write, but this covers some of the big ones. while it's a significant investment to have your event here, i promise it is worth it. your day will be special and the good people at Brasada will do everything to accommodate you and your group.

Room Tip: opt for a cabin with the hot tub.
