Not only are vacations a great way to take a slow down from everyday life, but they’re also a fantastic way to make memories with the ones you love most. While Black Butte Ranch is an excellent place for large family gatherings like a family reunion, this Sisters, Oregon, resort is also the perfect place for a family vacation. From cozy lodging to activities on-site and nearby, we have everything you need to make the most out of your getaway.
A Checklist of Activities the Whole Family Will Enjoy
Sitting on 1,800 acres of Central Oregon beauty, there’s no shortage of adventures to be had during your family vacation. To make planning easier, we’ve picked out some of our favorite experiences, both on and off-site.
Things to Do On-Site
On Black Butte Ranch’s property alone, there are endless ways to have fun with family and maybe even enjoy a bit of friendly competition. See who can get the best score at one of our two golf courses. Guests 7 and up can explore the ranch on a guided horseback ride.
