BLACK BUTTE, Ore. — Black Butte Ranch is a sleepy oasis just outside of Sisters Oregon. Judging from scenic Santiam highway, the turnoff for BBR does little to showcase the wonders that lie within the ranches boundaries.
With so much to offer, BBR makes the perfect family vacation or romantic getaway.
While there we experienced: Beautiful scenery (http://www.blackbutteranch.com/about-us/photo-gallery/), first class golf (http://www.blackbutteranch.com/golf/) relaxing spa treatments (http://www.blackbutteranch.com/Spa/), and wonderful food (http://www.blackbutteranch.com/dining/), and this was just in the first twenty-four hours.
If you are looking for a destination that truly has it all, then BBR is your destination. BBR is conveniently located to provide easy access to river rafting, fishing, hiking, and mountain biking.
In addition, there are on-site facilities offering pools, tennis courts, playgrounds, horseback riding, and a kids program that is sure to have your young ones jumping out of bed every morning (http://www.blackbutteranch.com/Recreation/).
