The newly expanded FivePine Lodge & Conference Center is designed to be a vacation destination for Oregonians and Europeans. Guests are encouraged to hop onto bicycles parked outside the hotel and get acquainted with Sisters as more than just a destination resort, according to owner Bill Willitts. The 15-acre campus includes an athletic club, spa, movie house and venues for outdoorsy activities. He expects the European market will be receptive to the hiking and the local lifestyle, and he’ll travel there later this year to survey the market in person. FivePine recently added a $10 million section of cottages and lodges that rent from $139 to $279 a day, boasting some of the “most romantic rooms in the state,” says Willitts. Future plans include a restaurant featuring locally grown organic food and drink scheduled to open this fall and vacation rental homes set to open in 2008.
