Sunriver Resort to Unveil Dining, Outdoor Renovations May 2015

SUNRIVER, Ore.—Sunriver Resort, a Destination Hotel, has announced a dining and outdoor pool transformation. Part of a $50 million property revitalization taking place over a five year period and slated to open in May of this year, the project includes a revamped and remodeled restaurant, lobby bar, and tavern, as well as a new pool facility with a café and bar.

“Our goal is to create experiences where guests can relax and gather for Pacific Northwest-inspired food and drinks while enjoying Sunriver Resort’s one-of-a-kind setting,” said Tom O’Shea, Sunriver Resort’s managing director. “From relaxing poolside, to kicking back after a day of golf, or simply enjoying a meal with family, there is a unique experience awaiting every guest.”

Adding to the Resort’s existing amenities, including 63 holes of golf, Sage Springs Spa & Club, outdoor tennis courts, seasonal fun-in-the-sun at the marina, and more, the new restaurants and outdoor pool offer guests even more opportunities to personalize their visit and explore all the Northwest has to offer.

This major transformation will includes several new additions. Carson’s American Kitchen features a menu created by Executive Chef Travis Taylor and a casual atmosphere. Carson’s American Kitchen is named after famous explorer Kit Carson, who was purported to have camped on the Sunriver Meadow during his exploration of the Oregon Trail.


Twisted River Tavern offers a twist on classic bar favorites, including shareable noshes and local beer, wine, and cocktails by the glass. The elevated tavern fare is served all day long with live music in the evenings.

The Living Room at the lodge will feature artisan Central Oregon-inspired small bites, regional wines on tap, bottled beer, and a selection of after-dinner spirits.

The new swimming and outdoor recreation facility, known as The Cove, will feature a giant zero-entry pool and hot tub, private cabanas, a water slide, nature discovery area, lakeside trails, and a deck and lawn. Additionally, The Spotted Frog will serve poolside beverages and fare. The restaurant’s name is a nod to the endangered Oregon Spotted Frog, who will have a protected habitat at The Cove’s nature discovery area.

“Within the natural beauty of Central Oregon, Sunriver Resort inspires our guests to explore, discover, and reflect,” said O’Shea. “With the introduction of our new restaurant, tavern, lobby bar, and pool facility, Sunriver Resort is proud to deliver on its transformative vision and commitment to offer unforgettable memories that keep guests coming back year after year.”
