Experience the Total Solar Eclipse from our beautiful backyard in Madras, Oregon!

Based on our location in the high desert of Central Oregon, typical weather patterns, and unobstructed views, the city of Madras has been identified by many Solar Eclipse experts as one of the premier viewing locations in the US. Located at the center of the path of totality, Madras will be engulfed in 2.02 minutes of total darkness. There are spectacular photographic opportunities set against our high desert scenery and panoramic views of the magnificent Cascade Mountain Range. Our backyard offers something for everyone – from hiking, fishing, rockhounding, or rafting to just relaxing with a good book. Come early and enjoy a number of festivities, then stay over a few days and attend The Airshow of the Cascades on August 25-26, 2017. Check out our Play page for a list of festivals and things to do during your stay - our friendly community awaits you!
