The sun is shining and the flowers are blooming in Bend. As you're planning your spring escape, why not make the Riverhouse Hotel your home base when visiting.
Let Wanderlust Tours take you behind the scenes with either the Bend Brew Bus or the Local Pour to witness Bend’s brewing and artisan distilling cultures. Your professional guide will provide insights into the processes of distillation, fermentation and the craft of making beer all while sampling the passions of the producer. When the snow melts, we are happy that it ends up in a glass. Cheers!
Spring is short and sweet in central Oregon and can offer some of the best opportunities for a variety of recreation.

Winter lasts a little longer at Mt. Bachelor. That's great news if you're hoping to get a few more turns in this season. End of season events, warm sunshine, blue skies and corn snow make spring a fun time to visit Mt. Bachelor.
The grass is greener at the nearby River's Edge Golf Course. Spring is the perfect time to get some early season practice in. River's Edge is located adjacent to the hotel and you can book our special golf packages.
