Caldera Springs is a Central Oregon resort community of luxury vacation homes offering visitors many exclusive on-property amenities.
This upscale resort is just 25 minutes away from Mt. Bachelor and a few minutes down the road from the entrance to Sunriver Resort. There are so many ways you can enjoy the high desert landscape when visiting Caldera Springs, from morning walks surrounded by towering pines and picturesque Aspen trees, to summer days splashing in the resort pool, or winter skiing at world class Mt. Bachelor. A stay here is a truly magical Central Oregon experience.
Caldera Springs was designed to be close enough to access all the things you have come to love about Central Oregon – the recreation, shopping, and dining at Sunriver Resort; the coffeeshops, craft beer, and rustic beauty of Bend; and the vintage appeal of Sisters – while also offering a sense of seclusion, peace, and privacy.
Ready to discover this special community of warm hospitality, exceptional amenities, and endless outdoor opportunities for the whole family? We have put together a list of some of our favorite ways to enjoy the area when staying at one of Meredith Lodging’s exclusive Caldera Springs vacation rentals.

Outdoor Recreation Activities Near Caldera Springs
Looking for a golf course challenge? Hit the golf course at Meadows, acclaimed architect John Fought’s latest creation. The course offers tremendous variety within its 18 holes, seven of which border the meandering Sun River.
Hit the trails. Twin Lakes Loop is a 4.5-mile loop trail good for all skill levels. The trail is accessible year-round and offers stunning lake views with several activity options. Dogs are allowed, but must be kept on leash.
See the stars and discover local flora and fauna. A visit to Sunriver is not complete without a stop at Sunriver Nature Center & Observatory. Located next to Lake Aspen and nestled amongst wetlands, pine forests, and meadow habitats, SNCO is the place for discovery. There is so much to do, learn and discover here, but we recommend visiting the observatory after dark for awe-inspiring views of the night sky. Sunriver’s elevation, clear skies, and crisp air, make it the perfect spot for stargazing. Over a dozen telescopes are available for kids of all ages to enjoy the spectacular views of our universe.
