Juniper Preserve - Living Well, Perfected.
Tucked away amidst the Cascade Mountains in the Pacific Northwest, Juniper Preserve, formerly known as Pronghorn Resort, is perched upon 640 acres of rolling hills in Central Oregon, just 20 minutes from downtown Bend.
Surrounded by an untouched, centuries-old juniper forest, among the oldest in the world, the resort’s recent rebrand brings a renewed focus on well-being, drawing inspiration from neighboring resources and the region’s rich history and cultural traditions.
Juniper Preserve welcomes all who seek sanctuary, including active families, curious couples and friends, and spirited solo travelers. Through a series of holistic programming guided by expert healing practitioners, the property caters to the curious and the connoisseurs, leading much of its wellness offerings out of its boutique hotel, Juniper Lodge, which opened in 2019 as the Huntington Lodge. Guests are also highly encouraged to utilize the outdoors as the ultimate gym, a place of movement and athleticism, just as it is a center of stillness, meditation, and introspection.
The 104 modern, upscale rooms and suites at Juniper Lodge have a striking aesthetic, offering private terraces with panoramic views of the surrounding 20,000 acres of federally protected land, nearby Mt. Bachelor, and the Three Sisters Wilderness. Celebrating the resort’s newfound ethos, the Lodge is home to the newly renovated Juniper Spa, directly inspired by the property’s mystic natural environment. The spa, open to residents, guests, and the public, offers signature treatments rooted in ancient traditions, including herbal-infused oils made from foraged local plants.
Another incredible, natural feature of the resort is its lava cave. Created by lava that flowed like a river below the surface of the property eons ago, the cave continues the resort’s wellness theme by offering supernatural acoustics and a profound sensory experience for group meditations, sound baths, yoga practice, and more. As one of the only public lava caves in Oregon, it is a true hidden gem.
Additional amenities at Juniper Preserve include the Trailhead and Village, both located at the center of the resort community just steps away from the Lodge. Serving as the base camp for activities and experiences, the Trailhead consists of newly renovated pools, fitness facilities, and a family-style dining room. The Village acts as a welcoming center, anchored by the Clubhouse, a grand lodge offering upscale dining and communal gathering spaces.
For those who choose to make Juniper Presreve their home, residents can select from four distinct neighborhoods – The Estates, The Residences, The Villas, and Four Peaks at Pronghorn Club – with homes starting at 1,532 square feet. The architecture throughout focuses on honoring the richness of the natural landscape, while being faithfully tailored to the individual needs and characteristics of each owner, so homeowners can make their homes a perfect oasis.
Pronghorn Club is also home to the resort’s two championship golf courses, a Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Course and Tom Fazio Championship Golf Course. The two nationally acclaimed courses are surrounded by views of the Cascade Mountains and have emerged as a bucket-list destination for golfers of all levels. The award-winning course design, sunny weather, and natural beauty transform every round into an experience to boast about.
With guiding principles centered around well-being and nature, the property also emphasizes the many outdoor activities of Central Oregon, from mountain biking and hiking to stargazing and kayaking. Mt. Bachelor is just 40 minutes away, and the property touts a ‘ski in the morning and golf in the afternoon’ routine throughout the mild winters. Encouraging togetherness and a connection with all components of life, Juniper Preserve offers many other group activities, including horseback riding, hiking, and biking along the miles of trails in and around the property.
Only a stone’s throw away, the spirited small-town vibe of Bend serves as the ultimate playground for the Juniper Preserve guest and resident. With great boutiques, restaurants, a dozen kombucha breweries, and the Bend Ale Trail, which offers 22+ breweries, the city is the perfect place for those looking to escape. Emphasizing holistic health, nearby activities also include Smith Rock State Park, known for its healing energy and considered one of the seven wonders of Oregon, and Deschutes River, which offers river floating and tubing for a tranquil afternoon.
In years to come, Juniper Preserve is set to be a hub for wellbeing activities within the resort and throughout Central Oregon. Weaving the ‘we’ into well-being and combining science and spirit amongst a transcendent natural landscape, the resort plans to enhance its gym and wellness center, launch a Kids Explorer Club, outdoor yurt facilities with kid-centric activities and programming, and open a new marketplace at The Trailhead, featuring local offerings, grab-and-go snacks, and everyday sundries.
