Take Me Home Country Road.

Don’t let the big orange signs on Century Drive scare you away from visiting our model homes. Road construction from the Bend city limits to Mt. Bachelor has made great progress and is well beyond both communities. So you won’t experience any delays on your drive.

Of course, there is no construction at all on weekends. So if you’re planning on spending some time at one of the many mountain lakes just 20 minutes farther up the highway, why not stop by our model homes, open Saturday and Sunday from noon to 5pm.

Since Century Drive was last paved in 1991, more recreational opportunities than ever can be accessed from the Cascade Lakes Scenic Byway. In the summer, the road is essential to major events such as Pole-Pedal-Paddle and the Cascade Cycling Classic, besides attracting large numbers of road cyclists on a daily basis. In the winter, the highway provides access to Mt. Bachelor, the sixth largest ski area in North America, along with five of the most heavily used Sno-park areas in the Pacific Northwest.

A multi-use trail undercrossing near Forest Service Road 41 (Conklin Road) just west of PointsWest was completed in June to allow people to safely cross the highway. Special accommodations have been made during lane closures for cyclists, who have been separated from traffic and construction by traffic cones. No work is allowed on holidays or during special events scheduled on Century Drive, and delays are usually no longer than 20 minutes.

By late September, homeowners in the PointsWest and TripleKnot communities can really take advantage of their superior locations with easy access to Mt Bachelor – just in time for ski season! And in the meantime, freshly paved roads make for creamy smooth biking to and from town.
