For the meeting and event planner seeking an undiscovered Western retreat, the Silvies Valley Ranch, a historic cattle ranch and resort, fits the bill. Scheduled to open in July, 2017, the frontier boutique resort will merge luxury and relaxation with an authentic Western ranch experience. Founded in 1883, Silvies Valley Ranch is a modern-day working ranch located along U.S. 395 near Burns, Oregon.
The size and unique Western experience provided by Silvies becomes ideal for small gatherings of friends, families, companies and associations.
A free-standing conference center, suitable for groups as large as 40, provides a unique space for a small conference, business meeting or corporate retreat. The 140,000-acre ranch will add to its existing infrastructure with the opening of 34 ranch house and private log cabin rooms.
The Retreat at Silvies Valley Ranch will bring the Western mystique of the region to an intimate scale. The full-service resort will offer two reversible 18-hole golf courses, multiple dining options, exclusive outdoor experiences, a spa (to open in 2018) and a private airstrip for guests looking to fly directly into the property. The most unique dining option will be the full-service chuck wagon, available both day and night for special occasions.
“Silvies Valley Ranch has been Western America’s best kept secret for more than 130 years. Our family has had the opportunity to relish the breathtaking vistas, abundance of wildlife and natural beauty of this region for generations, and we are eager to share our experience with the rest of the world,” said Dr. Scott Campbell, member of the family developing the project.
Outings, hikes and events are tailored to the interests of each group, creating a vacation destination like no other. With its flexible guest room plans and variety of activities, Silvies Valley Ranch is easily configured to provide a connected team-building environment.
Western adventures such as cattle roundup, goat herding, fishing, exploring, wagon rides, Native American cave tours and Western gourmet dining can all be found on the ranch – defining the overall serenity and impression that makes Silvies Valley Ranch a must-see destination for visitors far and wide.
