Quote: The weather was cooler than what we anticipated for May, but we had a few beautiful sunny days. We usually frequent eastern Oregon in the winter, so this time we were able to get outside and do some hiking and running around. We really enjoy Eagle Crest.

We really enjoyed hiking down to the Deschuttes River. It was about 100 yards or so downhill from the condo. My kids loved chasing the butterflies along the dirt path that paralleled the river. Quick Tips: Bring warm clothes! It rained a few days and the evenings get pretty cooooool. I think I packed mostly shorts and short sleeve shirts for myself and the kids. Good thing we had a washer and dryer. Do not park close to the golf pro shop!! My daughter and I went to check out the putting course and there was a spot just adjacent to the door. I was thinking to myself what a great spot. As we were getting ready to leave, a ball came flying over the pro shop and nailed our hood! ...Read More

Best Things Nearby:We really enjoyed hiking down to the Deschuttes River. It was about 100 yards or so downhill from the condo. We saw people getting their gear ready for fishing. The sign said fishing was available for salmon and trout over 24 inches. You can walk along the river until your legs get tired. We had two small kids, so knowing that we probably had to carry them back up to the condo, we didn't strain ourselves hiking indefinitely.Best Things About the Resort:We really love these timeshares. The last two times that we stayed here we stayed in a 3 bedroom, but this time we were only able to get a 2 bedroom. The floorplan is pretty much the same except the 3 be...Read More

I called the front desk at Eagle Crest for a recommendation for Chinese food. She said to eat there instead of take-out because you get a lot more food. The decor was pretty basic and plain. The restaurant was one square room with tables for four throughout in rows. The walls were white with a few pictues on it. The portions were huge. It was definitely a pile of food. Each dish comes with soup and rice. We took home enough for lunch the next day plus more. The food was not greasy, but not very flavorful. The egg flour soup tasted like chicken noodle soup with the eggs. It did come with crackers though. The chow mein was those crispy noodle type over bunches of veggies and meat. We ordere...Read More

Applebee's is a chain of restaurants that we were familiar with. The restaurant was clean and the service was great. There was a carousel horse my son couldn't wait to get on, as a part of the decor. The walls were covered with various paraphernalia. The bar is in the center and the tables perimeter it. I noticed that the bar area was nonsmoking, which was nice. They have a kids menu for about $4, which included their drinks, unless you get them the special super duper lemonade, which costs a dollar more. The kids got their placemats with four crayons to take home.

There is a great 18 hole putting course across Cline Falls. It is still a part of Eagle Crest. It takes about an hour and a half to play a round. It costs $8 per person and very small kids are free (my daughter is four). She said that they usually lose interest, so they don't charge them. The course looks just like a mini golf course. It has sand traps, hills, etc.
