REDMOND, Ore. — Two Oregon resorts joined the Holiday Inn collection of resorts in February.
Eagle Crest Resort near Redmond and the Lodge at Running Y Ranch in Klamath Falls, Ore., became the 16th and 17th Holiday Inn Resorts.
“These two resorts are the result of our strategy to grow Holiday Inn Resorts in markets that are convenient for our guests to get to,” said Gina LaBarre, vice president, Brand Management, the Americas, IHG.
“Since assuming ownership of Eagle Crest Resort and Running Y Ranch in November 2010, we have invested more than $6 million into the properties, completing a full renovation of all guest rooms, public areas, meeting rooms, restaurants and bars,” said David Zeuske, Northview partner and president of NVHG Management. “Partnering with the world’s most recognized hotel brand allows us to connect to the industry’s largest distribution systems and welcome the millions of Priority Club Rewards members from around the world.”
The Lodge at Eagle Crest is a full-service destination resort located on 1,700 acres along the Deschutes River, 18 miles from Bend, Ore. About $3 million was invested in renovations of the property last summer. The 100-guest room resort has 10,000 square feet of conference space, three golf courses, a spa, three sport centers, four pools, six tennis courts, a volleyball court and 14 miles of hiking and biking trails.
The Lodge at Running Y Ranch is on 3,600 acres along Klamath Lake in southern Oregon’s Cascade mountain range, near the California border. Some $3 million was also spent there to renovate 82 guest rooms and add a new restaurant, the Ruddy Duck.
The lodge, which has 7,500 square feet of conference space, also features the only Arnold Palmer-design golf course in Oregon, ranked by Golf Digest as a Top 100 U.S. Public Golf Course and Top Five U.S. Golf Courses for Women.
Other amenities include a spa, a sports center, a pool, tennis and volleyball courts, an ice skating arena, and 12 miles of hiking and biking trails.
Running Y Ranch Resort guides are available to take guests on trips to explore what Sunset Magazine has called the best birding destination in the West. Seven wildlife refuges surround the resort, along with world-class fly fishing, rafting, cycling and hiking.
