Buckhorn Springs Retreat Center is owned and operated by the Sargent family. For the past 25 years the Sargent’s have run this peaceful and rustic retreat center. Buckhorn provides a unique environment nestled in its own small valley. It has a year-round creek, old oaks, tall aromatic cedars and open meadows. Buckhorn Springs is ideal for group gatherings of any size. We host seminars, workshops, yoga retreats, business meetings, religious retreats, reunions, weddings, personal retreats and more.
Buckhorn Springs serves as a reminder of what is possible when a family commits to a particular place. In a modern world where jobs, houses, and lifestyles are often traded like interchangeable parts, Bruce and Leslie made a radical choice when they purchased the run-down mineral springs resort in October of 1987. They chose to restore and preserve the historic structures, and the stories of a single location. In doing so, their family embarked on what would soon become their life’s work: preserving a piece of Oregon’s history to share with their guests.
If you have the opportunity to visit Buckhorn, you’ll feel the Sargent’s commitment to the land and its history. Chef Leslie serves delicious, seasonal and organic meals. Bruce has restored the buildings according to historical photographs. Russell, their son, built a hiking trail to guide guests through the heart of the property. Lauren, their daughter, helped her mother share kitchen secrets and her father share the history by creating the Buckhorn Springs Historical Cookbook. Quinn, their youngest son, born and raised at Buckhorn, is well versed in working in the woods with his dad or the kitchen with his mom.
