Chasing Waterfalls
White River Falls, Tygh Valley OR

Peak season for waterfalls & wildflowers!

We don't like to pick favorites, but for folks who love to get outside, it's hard to argue that spring isn't THE season for peak mood-boosting in nature. Here in the Dufur foothills, at the gateway to the Columbia Gorge and with the Deschutes River to our south, the area invites so many potential excursions to explore local waterfalls, amazing local geology, explosions of native wildflowers alongside trails, blossoming orchards in the valleys, or fly fishing on a glistening river. Outdoor recreation here is truly world class!

Make the Balch your home base to check out all the area has to offer, and to relax and restore when you return from the great outdoors. Check dates now, and book direct to take advantage of the best seasonal deals.

PS: This year we've added a seasonal special that's a fun way to level up your outdoor adventures! Check out the Get in Nature package, which adds to your reservation the consummate local guidebook Curious Gorge, as well as a keepsake Dufur sports bottle, and a couple of refreshments of your choice to enjoy on our grounds after your adventures (beer, wine, craft sodas, etc.) All at 10% off retail price. Gifts will await you at check in!

PPS: The photo above is the stunning White River Falls. If you haven't been, our team can point you there, and to many other hidden gems.
