If you are looking for a family vacation destination that won't drain your wallet, Sunriver is hard to beat in any season.
To start with, rooms, suites and condos are so inexpensive, particularly given the quality, that you actually have money left to do other things... and oh the things there are to do.
Mt. Bachelor is, of course, the primary draw in the winter. It is a nice mountian, more laid back than places like Tahoe or Vail but with plenty of variety to suit every skier or boarder. There are also plenty of places to snow shoe, cross country ski or ride a snow machine close by and there is an ice skating right at the resort.
In the summer you can well, do about anything that doesn't involve the ocean. You can hike, bike, swim, fish, shop, raft and golf. I'm not sure how many golf courses are scattered around Bend, but if the two great courses at the resort aren't enough, there ate at least 20 more in the area, many of them highly rated. The resort has its own water park called the Sharc, complete with slides and a "lazy river," as well as miles of hiking and bike trails.
To be sure, this is not a luxury hotel in an exotic, romantic locale. The setting is rustic but well-appointed and utilitarian. Just the same, you will be hard pressed to find a family vacation venue where you get this much without spending thousands of dollars for a weeks stay.
