Fall in Bend is a season filled with changing color, cooling temps, sunny skies and golden light. Surprisingly warm days (often in the high 60s or even low 70’s) and crisp nights make it a great time to enjoy all that Bend has to offer. Mt. Bachelor Village, just above the Deschutes River and tucked in amidst evergreen fir trees, pinecone-laden pines and Aspens that turn bright yellow each Fall, is even more beautiful than usual this time of year and makes the perfect home base to experience the season in Central Oregon. We gathered our Guests’ top favorite ways to savor Fall on -property (or very nearby!) when staying at Mt. Bachelor Village.
Book a River Ridge Home, and spend as much time as possible on your deck facing the Deschutes River.
Once you check-in to these River-facing, light filled homes, you will not want to leave! Perched just above the Deschutes you can watch the Fall Color Show play out for miles and see trees of every color! Sunrise is spectacular, with the cool air seeming to make the colors even brighter. And the evening light changing the skies every few minutes is better than any movie you could watch inside your cozy home.
Walk the Deschutes River Trail and see Fall up close.
Let nature be your guide to exploring Fall at Mt. Bachelor Village. Right outside your door you can access the beautiful Deschutes River trail and see and hear the rushing of the River, the changing of the maple and Aspen trees and all that golden light across the landscape. This trail is suitable for hikers of all experience levels and family-friendly, too.
Want to see even more Fall Color? Head to Nearby Drake Park!
Drake Park is a local favorite with good reason, it’s beautiful and offers something for everyone. In the Fall, the park is also one of the best places to see the Fall color show because of the vast variety of trees that were planted there when the park was built. The park features a half mile of riverfront, acres of open green space, charming views over Mirror Pond and picnic tables for visitors to enjoy.
Sunny Day? Cruiser bikes! Surprise Snowfall? Snow shoes! Mt. Bachelor Village offers complimentary rentals to Meredith Lodging Guests no matter what the season!
We know that our Guests love to get out there and see and experience all that Bend has to offer and we want to make that fun and easy and FREE to Meredith Lodging Guests no matter what the weather. We have cruiser bikes for the whole family and snow shoes and poles, too. And if you are lucky enough to be at MBV when the snow falls, check with our front desk about sleds and snowman building kits! And if some group game time sounds fun and the weather permits, we even have corn hole sets available for Meredith Lodging Guests to enjoy. No matter what the weather we love helping you make memories at Mt. Bachelor Village.
Spend some time around the new outdoor fire pit with friends and family.
Meredith Lodging spent the summer making upgrades and Mt. Bachelor Village Guests are putting our our new outdoor fire pit at the top of their favorites list! This cozy outdoor gathering spot is even seeing some daytime use by folks wanting to work on their laptops outside. Grab your s’mores supplies and come to the fire pit to enjoy the warm glow amidst the beauty of Mt. Bachelor Village!
When the temperatures drop head inside and enjoy our remodeled lobby and Meredith Lodging Guest Lounge and Game Room!
