My wife and I and our 1.5 and 3.5 year old sons trekked to Sun River in June 2007 to attend a friend's wedding. Though a challenge to get to, we had a fabulous time in the high plain mountainous setting.
We chose to use miles to fly to Portland and drive 3 hours past mount Batchelor to the resort. We wanted to stay somewhere close in to The Great Hall where the wedding reception was scheduled to be held. We chose a 2/2 Tennis Village condo #20 from the kind folks at Sunset Realty [--------------]. The condo is far nicer than the pictures at [-------------------].htm suggest due to the wrap around windows allowing light in from all directions. The condos are spaced out enough and only two to a building so you still get the sense of being in the forest. We had three adults and two toddlers but the place can sleep a lot more comfortably due to everything folding out . This condo even had a toddler bed we pulled out of the closet for our 1.5 year old. We were very pleased with the cleanliness and upkeep of our unit. We were a 4 minute walk to the fun and heated pool, and a 4 minute walk to the Great Hall. The condo had well maintained bikes and we rented a kid seat and trailer at the nearby bike shop at the mall.
The resort grounds are gorgeous and it feels like a quaint city with miles and miles of bike trails. Many times taking your bike was faster than loading up the kids in the car seats driving and unloading them. The marina is well equipped for the casual or hard core rafter. The airport was a fun destination for the boys to watch the planes take off and land and see the glider soaring over head.
The temps in June were cool crisp and welcome. The pool was heated and even though the air could be a crisp cool 65, the high mountain sun and the heated pool made the swimming enjoyable for all.
