We are proud to announce that the Huntington Lodge at Pronghorn Resort will officially open its doors to guests on April 19, 2019.
Bend’s newest luxury guest lodge is an experience like none other in Central Oregon. The style, comfort and amenities that await you reflect the unique beauty and serenity of the high desert. Every detail—from the name itself, Huntington Lodge, to the interior design, to the lobby lounge menu, to the organic layers of material and artwork throughout—was inspired by the surroundings.
Before we welcome you inside the Huntington Lodge on April 19th, let’s take a walk through the Lodge story. The thoughtful details placed throughout the Huntington Lodge experience are rooted in the unique history and landscape of this high desert location. It is always interesting to know the story behind a place, especially when thoughtful details are incorporated into the physical spaces of your hotel accommodations.
Paying homage to the Huntington Wagon Road.
The Huntington Lodge is named after a historic wagon route that ran through Deschutes County, the Huntington Wagon Road.
Did you know? A section of this wagon road runs right through Pronghorn Resort. With this interesting piece of Oregon history right here at Pronghorn, the ideal name came to us—the Huntington Lodge.
The old north-to-south route was built in 1867 and named after the road’s first guide, J.W. Perit Huntington. The route served as a means for transporting supplies via wagon from The Dalles to build Fort Klamath. Soldiers, adventurers and Native Americans crossed the vast juniper desert via the Huntington Wagon Road on their way to other parts of Oregon including the Willamette Valley. Today, there is an interpretive Huntington Wagon Trail managed by the Bureau of Land Management. The light 2-mile walk is easily accessible from Pronghorn. The trail is an interesting activity that leads you past tree blazes and a historic campsite.
Style, comfort and craftsmanship inspired by the high desert.
Artistically inspired by its surrounding landscapes, the Lodge’s design celebrates the tranquility and spirit of Central Oregon’s high desert, while showcasing panoramic mountain views. Inside the Lodge you will find decor that takes its cues from natural elements nearby. Wood furnishings and accents complement soft, organic layers. Blues and soft greens reflect the juniper forest that is signature to the landscape of both of our award-winning golf courses. These layers of style and comfort combine to tell a story that is authentic to the region’s roots and rich history.
Throughout the Lodge, you will notice unique pieces of art. A clever display of tumbleweed creates a quietly dramatic and inspiring art installation through the center of the Lodge’s main stairwell. A wooden owl sculpture hangs gently above the lobby entrance, as if in flight. Organic and stylish wall hangings invite thoughts of the old wagon road and the history that lives here. More than 20 Oregon-based artists, craftspeople and fabricators created the one-of-a-kind works found throughout the property. Guests are invited to wonder and admire each one.
The new central pillar of the Pronghorn Resort community.
The Huntington Lodge is at the heart of the 640-acre Pronghorn Resort community. With easy access to all of the resort’s amenities, including golf, pools, spa, dining and activities, the Huntington Lodge offers something for everyone. Whether it is a cocktail at sunset, an afternoon dip in the pool, or small plates in the lounge bar before an elegant dinner at Cascada, the Huntington Lodge welcomes you with modern design, luxurious comforts and the pristine beauty of this natural, high desert landscape.
