Eagle Crest, Oregon Real Estate Find your perfect home at Eagle Crest!
Eagle Crest Resort occupies nearly 1,700 acres on the northern and eastern slopes of the Cline Buttes roughly six miles west of Redmond – with which it shares the 97756 zip code. The initial phase of the resort borders the Deschutes River while the latter two phases occupy the northern shoulder of the Cline Buttes. The Cline Falls State Scenic Viewpoint (managed by Oregon State Parks) is just across the Deschutes River from the initial phase of the resort and all three phases are close to the various sections of the Cline Buttes Recreation area (more on that at the bottom of this guide page).
Developed in the mid-1980’s by the Jeld-Wen corporation, the resort includes the 100-room Lodge Hotel, 10,000 square foot Eagle Crest Conference Center, 80 condominium units, a retail village, and three 18-hole golf courses: The Resort Course, designed by Gene Mason, and The Ridge and Challenge Courses, both designed by John Thronson. Eagle Crest was developed in three distinct phases – each with its own dedicated sports center. The resort has over 1,850 homes, chalets, townhomes, and fractional (timeshare) residences spread throughout a number of unique neighborhoods.

- The Lodge Hotel
- The 10,000 s.f. Conference Center

The Resort Homes
Within the initial phase of Eagle Crest, there are two gated neighborhoods of single-family home sites. The smaller of the two is located on Thunderbird Drive immediately north of the soccer/softball field. The larger, main section of homes is located directly south of Fairway Vista Estates. The 190 lots of these two areas were sold in six distinct phases and while most now have homes on them, several lots have yet to be built upon. Many of the homes have direct frontage on the Resort Golf Course (fairways #3, #7, #10, & #11-15). Four of the Thunderbird Drive homes and five homes in the southernmost tip of the resort offer Deschutes River canyon views.
The Resort Condominiums
The condominiums were among the first homes built at Eagle Crest and are located north & south of the Sports Center & original lodge (now the River Run Lodge Event Center). They were built in six phases and include twenty-eight fourplexes for a total of 122 units that, depending on their location, offer views into the Deschutes River canyon or out onto Resort Course fairways #5 & #6. The units are two-story, two-bedroom designs that are very similar to the Fairway Vista and Riverview Vista townhomes. Unlike the townhomes, the condos do not offer garages or separate storage units. The majority of the condos are owned by Eagle Crest and are used as vacation rentals, so the search below will likely not yield any results.
Eagle Crest At Ridge Hawk
The Ridge Hawk condominiums are located just past the Riverview Vista Estate townhomes on Ridge Hawk Court. There are three (3) triplex units and two (2) quad-plexes. These vacation condos are owned and managed by Worldmark, The Club, so the search below will likely not yield any results.
Fairway Vista Estates
The 32 townhomes of Fairway Vista Estates are arranged in pairs (duplexes) with detached garages along SW Robin Court and offer fractional (timeshare) ownership. Those on the north side of the street face out onto fairway #9 of the Resort Course, while those on the south side of the street look out on to fairway #10. Six units at the end of Robin Court have frontage on fairway #8. The townhomes are two-story plans; ten of which are two bedroom floor plans while the remaining twenty-two townhomes offer three bedrooms. Inside you’ll find a gas fireplace, built-in entertainment center casework, and vaulted ceilings. All offer exterior decks and many of the three bedroom units have in deck hot tubs. They are also fully furnished and include a hide-a-bed sofa in the living room for extra guests. HOA dues cover most everything including weekly maid service and hot tub cleaning where applicable.
Riverview Vista Estates
Fractional (timeshare) ownership can also be found in the 47 townhomes and 12 condominiums that comprise Riverview Vista Estates. These townhomes are arranged in duplexes, triplexes, and fourplexes along Redtail Hawk Drive, Redtail Hawk Court, and Ridge Hawk Court. Additionally, there are three (3) fourplex condominium units. The two on Redtail Hawk Court face out onto fairway #6 of the Resort Golf Course. The third fourplex is located on Redtail Hawk Drive and has views into the Deschutes River canyon below. The townhomes are arranged as triplexes along Redtail Hawk Drive and duplexes along Redtail Hawk Court. Those on the west side of Redtail Hawk Drive face out on to fairways #6 & #7 of the Resort Course, while those on the other side of the street, as well as all of the units on Redtail Hawk Drive, look down to the Deschutes River below. The twelve condominium units are two bedroom plans, while the townhomes offer both two (14 units) and three (33 units) bedroom options. Both the condos and townhomes are two-story designs and in each unit, you’ll find a gas fireplace, built-in entertainment center casework, and vaulted ceilings. All of the units have exterior decks and the three bedroom townhomes also have in deck hot tubs. The fractional ownership units are fully furnished and include a hide-a-bed sofa in the living room for extra guests. HOA dues cover most everything including weekly maid service and hot tub cleaning where applicable. Additionally, none of the units have garages or covered parking, though the townhomes do offer detached storage units.
Phase 2 – The Ridge
The Ridge phase was begun in 1996 and is located on the west side of SW Cline Falls Road, directly opposite the earlier resort phase. The Ridge is governed by the Ridge at Eagle Crest Owners Association (RECOA) and includes the following amenities:

The Eagle Creek neighborhood consists of 148 homes that were built in eight phases by Bend’s Sun Forest Construction. They are located immediately southwest of The Ridge Course pro-shop, driving range, & putting course. All of the units are chalet-style homes that feature exposed wood beams and open loft areas. There are two and three bedroom floor plans. Roughly one-third of the units have garages as well. Many of these homes have direct frontage on fairways #1, #4, #5, #6, #8, & #9 of The Ridge Course. HOA dues cover exterior insurance as well as reserve funds for exterior maintenance including deck sealing, exterior re-painting, roof & deck replacement, road & path maintenance, landscaping, sports center fees, and other associated resort fees & expenses. Additionally, a small number of units offer fractional (1/10th) ownership and their dues also cover housekeeping fees, interior repairs, and all utilities.
This is a small gated subdivision of 21 homes on Eagle Springs Court immediately east of The Ridge Sports Center. The homes were built by Bend’s Sage Builders and have direct frontage on greens #16, #17, and #18 of The Ridge Golf Course. Owners are responsible for all costs related to the care of their homes. The gate area and landscaped islands within the two turning circles are covered by HOA dues. The lone exception is a single fractional (timeshare) ownership home in this subdivision. Dues for that home also cover interior & exterior maintenance, utilities, insurance, furniture replacement, and landscaping.
The Falls is a 55-and-over community that encompasses 207 home sites built in 10 phases spread throughout fairways #7-15 of The Challenge Golf Course. Most of the homes were built by C. Corp with a later phase, on Wildwood Court, developed by Stone Bridge Homes. The majority of the houses in The Falls are single level designs with two or three car garages. Each home is individually owned and maintained by its owner(s). HOA dues cover common area landscaping, road maintenance, sports center fees, as well as other associated resort fees & expenses. The Falls has its own website and Home Owners Association (governed by the larger RECOA). A 6,000 square foot clubhouse is located in this neighborhood for the exclusive use of owners & guests. Clubhouse amenities include a dance floor, exercise room, library, fireplace, as well as smaller card & craft rooms to help service and encourage the various clubs associated directly with this neighborhood.
The townhomes of Forest Greens are located just north of the Ridge Sports Center on either side of Golden Pheasant Drive and Golden Pheasant Court. Nearly every unit has golf course frontage and depending on which side of the street they are on, offer westerly views of fairways #10, #15-18 of the Ridge Golf Course or easterly views of fairways #1 & #2 of the Challenge Golf Course. The 108 units were constructed in six phases by the Pennbrook Corporation and consist of two, three, and four bedroom units arranged in groups of three or four. Each unit is individually owned. None of the units have garages or carports. The resort’s gated RV storage lot is located directly across Nutcracker Drive from this neighborhood. Owners are responsible for the interior of their units (including insurance). HOA dues cover exterior insurance as well as reserve funds for exterior maintenance (including deck sealing, exterior re-painting, and roof & deck replacement), road & path maintenance, landscaping, sports center fees, and other associated resort fees & expenses.
Forest Ridge consists of 48 duplex townhomes developed by Pennbrook Corporation off of Cinnamon Teal Drive and Forest Ridge Loop and arranged within the triangular area defined by the fairways #2, #3, & #4 of The Ridge Course. Roughly two-thirds of these homes have direct golf course frontage. These homes consist of two, three, and four bedroom plans with some having dual master suites and an open loft area. Additionally, each home has an attached garage. Dues cover exterior insurance, reserves for roof and deck replacement, periodic deck sealing, exterior repainting, road/path maintenance, landscaping, sports center fees, and other associated fees and expenses.
The Ridge At Eagle Crest
The Ridge is made up of the 400+ remaining homes & lots in Eagle Crest’s second phase of development that aren’t a part of the previously described subdivisions. The Ridge home sites are arranged around the fairways of both golf courses. Many of the homes are on larger lots and have three-car garages. A few even have RV garages.
Phase 3 – The West Ridge
Development of the third and final phase of Eagle Crest began around 2001 and includes six distinct subdivisions that are also governed by the Ridge at Eagle Crest Owners Association (RECOA). This area is located on the northwest slopes of the Cline Buttes and is separated from Phase 2 Ridge area by approximately one mile of Bureau of Land Management (BLM) property. An easement with a paved road connects the two areas. Unlike the first two phases of Eagle Crest’s development, the West Ridge is not built around a golf course (or courses). However, some of the homes and homesites in this phase have the best views available within all of Eagle Crest. Amenities include:
- “back door” access to HWY 126 aka McKenzie Highway
- The Lakeside Sports Center
- Outdoor infinity edge pool and hot tub
- Children’s splash park
- Outdoor half-court basketball
- Tennis/pickleball courts
- The Equestrian Center
- Access to the Cline Butte trail system
Creekside Village Townhomes
The 6 phases of Creekside Village were developed by Sage Builders as two and three bedroom units and grouped as fourplexes (three bedroom units in the center with a two-bedroom unit at either end). None of the units have garages, but most have a gas fireplace, built-in entertainment center casework, and vaulted ceilings. This subdivision has 216 units in total and is located immediately south of the Equestrian Center and the Lakeside Sports Center. A man-made creek flows through the center of the development and empties into a small pond next to the sports center. Depending on the unit, there are views toward Smith Rock, the Cascades, the Cline Buttes, and the interior creek. Dues cover exterior painting & insurance, reserves for roof replacement, landscaping, road & path maintenance, and sports center fees, as well as other associated resort fees & expenses.
The Homesteads of Desert Sky
This neighborhood of 113 home sites built over five phases is located in the northwest corner of the West Rim area between the Vista Rim and Scenic Ridge subdivisions. The Equestrian Center and Lakeside Sports Center are located immediately south across William Lyche Drive. There are a variety of two and three bedroom homes in both single and two-story configurations. Some have garages while others do not. The architecture references an early American tradition of board & batten siding, split-rail fencing, with wainscoting and crown molding inside. HOA dues cover reserves for exterior maintenance & repainting, road/path maintenance, landscaping, sports center fees, and other associated resort fees & expenses.
Designed by architect Joel Severud and built by the Pennbrook Corporation, the five phases and 41 homes of Highland Parks work their way up to a small West Ridge hillside via six parallel streets – each with its own pocket park. Views to the northeast take in the distant Ochoco mountains as well as Grizzly Butte, Gray Butte, Smith Rock, and the city lights of nearby Redmond. The contemporary, architect-designed, light-filled homes feature oversized garages that are either sited at the main level or on a basement level depending on specific site topography. Living area plans are multi-level two or three bedroom designs with east facing window walls in the main open living/dining/kitchen areas. HOA dues cover periodic road & path maintenance, landscaping, sports center fees, and other associated resort fees & expenses.
This high-end, gated collection of eight large (1.1 to 1.5 acre) lots is located in the northwest corner of Phase III. These are the largest lots in Eagle Crest and have panoramic views of the Cascades from Mt. Hood to Mt. Bachelor. In addition to the main house, each lot may also have a 1,200 s.f. casita built on the property. HOA dues cover maintenance of common areas, roads, and gates, as well as sports center fees and other associated resort fees & expenses.
Located off of Eagle Crest Blvd. between the Highland Parks and Desert Sky subdivisions, this neighborhood of 68 home sites has been built over four phases by Sun Forest Construction. There are several house plans available and the neighborhood is roughly two-thirds built out. Some of the homes have easterly views toward Redmond, while others face inward to a landscaped area with several water features. HOA dues cover reserves for road/path maintenance, landscaping (including the water features), sports center fees, and other associated resort fees & expenses.
The largest subdivision in Eagle Crest’s third phase is known as West Ridge. It is comprised of 378 single-family home sites. Because this subdivision wraps around the north and west sides of the Cline Buttes, views vary from east (Redmond, Smith Rock, Gray Butte, Grizzly Butte, & the Ochocos) to west (the Cascades). Owners are responsible for their own home’s upkeep. HOA dues cover common area maintenance & landscaping as well as road maintenance, repair, and snow removal.
Cline Buttes Recreation Area
As mentioned at the top of this guide, Eagle Crest is in very close proximity to the Cline Buttes Recreation Area, which consists of several thousand acres of BLM land (managed by the Prineville District office) in the vicinity of the Cline Buttes. The area is popular for hikers, equestrians, mountain bikers, and off-highway vehicle (OHV) use. As the area has grown in popularity, facilities and rules have been put in place to help manage the different uses. Please see this overall map of the area for the different areas and allowed uses within them. This area is fairly new to managed recreational use in central Oregon and continues to undergo review/study/planning/etc. Because of this, you’ll want to do your research before you go. The BLM website is a logical place to start, though it is far from complete regarding this area. So, explore Google, check other websites, news articles, and forums for the latest information. Below is a list of the six main areas and the established trailheads within them:
- Deep Canyon Area
- Central OHV Area (map | brochure)
- Buttes Area
- Southwest Area
- Tumalo Historic Area (map)
- Maston Area (map | brochure)
