Golf is the big draw to this 640-acre (260ha) spread, with top-flight courses designed by Jack Nicklaus and Tom Fazio. Luxe accommodation choices include rooms in the Huntington Lodge and vacation home rentals. Enjoy Sunday brunch at Cascada – one of several resort restaurants – or an aromatherapy massage at the spa. Bend – a 30-minute drive southeast – makes a fun afternoon day trip destination.

2. Resort at Eagle Point, for a chalet-style stay

A short drive from Medford in Southern Oregon and about an hour from Crater Lake National Park, the Resort at Eagle Point offers chalet-style accommodations, two restaurants and golf on a course designed by Robert Trent Jones Jr. The grounds also include English-style gardens that may inspire you to take in a show at the Oregon Shakespeare Festival in nearby Ashland.

3. Mt Hood Oregon Resort, for outdoor lovers

This family-friendly resort sits at the base of Mt Hood – the highest peak in Oregon. Rooms feature plush beds and private patios or decks that look out onto a forested courtyard and pool. Play a round of golf, get pampered at the spa, and take advantage of a bus service to the mountaintop for skiing in winter and biking and hiking in summer.

4. The Lodge at Eagle Crest Resort, for active families

Activities include golf on three courses, bike rentals, indoor and outdoor pools – plus a splash park for the kids – and daily fitness classes. Several restaurants dish up everything from seafood to snow cones, and there are many more dining choices in Redmond – a 10-minute drive away.

5. Anchor Inn Resort, for s’more fun around the fire

Located at Lincoln City on the Oregon Coast, this old-school motor court offers cabins and updated staterooms in a 1940s lodge – each kitted out with a s’mores kit for toasting treats at one of the community fire pits. Family-friendly amenities include classic arcade games and a covered sandbox play zone for rainy days. Lincoln City is known for its long beach, just a short stroll away.

6. Mount Bachelor Village Resort, for getting back in touch with nature

About 20 minutes from its namesake peak, Mount Bachelor Village Resort is a longtime vacation home development on the Deschutes River. Three-bedroom guesthouses and smaller condos are among the wide range of accommodations. Amenities include complimentary cruiser bikes and fitness club access, several pools, a playground and a serene nature trail. Lively downtown Bend and its Old Mill District are close by, with plenty of shops and restaurants.

7. Oregon Garden Resort, for afternoon garden walks

Every room at this hotel has a fireplace and a private garden patio – fitting since you’re a short stroll from one of the top botanical gardens in the Pacific Northwest. The Garden View Restaurant serves locally sourced food from the Willamette Valley, and Moonstone Spa offers hemp-derived CBD oil enhancements to its menu of massages. The resort is just outside Silverton, about an hour south of Portland.

8. Adobe Resort, for a little romance with your partner

Located about midway down the Oregon Coast near the town of Yachats, the updated 1950s Adobe Resort still has a vintage vibe that is perfect for a romantic retreat – perhaps from a private whirlpool tub overlooking the ocean. The hotel restaurant and lodge are 50ft (15m) from the water’s edge, offering brunch or dinner with a view – stroll the beach after dinner, and enjoy the indoor pool.

9. Sunriver Resort, for a family-friendly vacation

Set in the Cascade foothills south of Bend, Sunriver has an array of rooms, many featuring private patios or decks and fireplaces built from local lava rock. There are activities galore, from four golf courses and 40mi (65km) of paved biking trails to an indoor-outdoor aquatics center with waterslides and private poolside cabanas. Nine restaurants offer plenty of dining choices – families are welcome here, and there’s no chance the kids will get bored.
