Sometimes you just need to get away from it all. And then sometimes in planning to get away from it all you realize that there are so many details to nail down that that you can’t truly relax. Even during the adventure.
If you’ve been dreaming about exploring the wild west region of John Day and the surrounding landscape, you’re not alone. The John Day Scenic Bikeway was one of the first of it’s kind and makes for a lovely rural adventure. But resources are limited and you’re completely on your own.
Take a Tour!
To make the most of this region and truly experience the relaxation you crave while cranking out the miles and soaking in the landscape, check out TREO Bike Tours, a guided services with lodging and meals provided. Their secluded and comfortable 3,200 square foot guest house has 12 beds and sits on a 300-acre farm with the nearest neighbors far miles away. Meals are fully catered and there’s a delightful hot tub on site.
A Catered Tour
Every day you’ll head out on a route to your liking (just let proprietor Phil know what kind of riding you want to conquer), stop for views and a hearty, healthy catered lunch, then return to your TREO Lodge home base at the end of the day. It’s nearly impossible not to relax at this sprawling lodge that has just about everything you could possibly want after a long day in the saddle: soft grass for stretching, comfy couches for getting cozy, plenty of showers for all, a relaxing hot tub in a scenic setting, beer on tap (yup!) and a huge dinner that’ll make your mouth water every time you think about it for years to come.
Let Vacation be VACATION
Vacation should be vacation. Leave the work part of it to TREO. They started in the hospitality as a bird hunting ranch and honed their amazing skill at providing a relaxing environment. Their lodge is a comfortable, sprawling setting to wind down at the end of the day.
They even offer bike and rider pick ups from Portland and other areas!
About Eastern Oregon
Eastern Oregon is the Wild West of Oregon – complete with working ranches, plenty of horses and a beautiful desolation. The landscape is rugged, the hillsides are colorful and air is dry. On those hot summer days, you’re glad you’ve got AC back at the Lodge!
This beautiful part of Oregon is woven together by the John Day River, one of our nation’s longest free-flowing river systems. You are guaranteed some of the best natural, scenic and recreational experiences around, and TREO will offer plenty of opportunities to stop and explore, including a visit to the museum of the John Day Fossil Beds National Monument.
The rides of TREO Bike Tours weave through wheat fields, pastures, meadows, canyons and past the Blue Mountains – a landscape that will no doubt steal your heart.
TREO Lodge also makes a fantastic setting for a group trip, corporate retreat or family reunion. Some can ride bikes, others can stay behind and relax at the lodge. With multiple sleeping quarters, multiple hang out rooms and one gigantic dining table, TREO is the perfect group setting for your next group event.
