Black Butte Ranch

5 02 2018

blackbutte1 Black Butte Ranch, nestled in Central Oregon near the town of Sisters, developed in the 1970s on the property of the former Black Butte cattle ranch. Although it sounds like a place straight out of a western movie, Black Butte Ranch offers amenities that secure it as a leading resort. Its eight square miles encompasses stables, golf courses, tennis courts, playgrounds, and outdoor basketball and volleyball courts. Swimming pools and hot tubs located both inside and outside offer views, slides, and water features. Additional indoor amenities include restaurants, stores, and a spa. Besides the quiet road system, miles of paved walking and biking paths deliver guests to every part of the ranch. They wind across expansive meadows, between rocky lava outcrops, and through Ponderosa Pine, Incense Cedar, and Quaking Aspen forests.

Black Butte Ranch supplies its own post office, police and fire stations. It allows public access to restaurants, stables, and golf courses, but restricts the rest for seasonal guests and residents. Black Butte Ranch is open all year. For more information, go to
