Tetherow’s Ski & Stay Package Will Get You on the Slopes Quicker

We’ve partnered with Mt. Bachelor to offer the best deal around By Yoko Minoura   Most locals will tell you the key to surviving winter in Central Oregon isn’t staying inside the whole time. Instead, the answer is playing in the snow. As often as possible. And there’s no better way to do that than to ski, snowboard or snowshoe at Mt. Bachelor, Bend’s own mountain. The ski resort – which boasts several terrain parks and a tubing hill along with more than 4,300 skiable acres, according to its website – opened for the winter season the day after Thanksgiving. Unlike other ski resorts, Mt. Bachelor does not provide any onsite lodging. Instead, as it has for several years running, it partners… Read More

The new program boasts three guitars and a mandolin available to guests.

Tetherow Lodges now has three guitars and one mandolin available for guests courtesy of Two Old Hippies Stringed Instruments. The company’s Bend-based division designs and manufactures acoustic guitars, bass guitars and mandolins under the imprints Breedlove, Bedell and Weber.

The Time is Now to Book Your Holiday Gatherings at Tetherow

“Even though Christmas seems like it’s really far away – I mean, we haven’t even gotten to Halloween yet – it’s time to book now.” By McKenna Brown   If there’s one thing Director of Sales Kristi DiTullio wants you to know about hosting a holiday party at Tetherow, it’s this: “Book now!” “The sooner the better,” she said. “Even though Christmas seems like it’s really far away – I mean, we haven’t even gotten to Halloween yet – it’s time to book now.” Reservations for weekends during the holiday season starting rolling in as early as last year, when many companies and organizations found they had too many people to host their parties in the Clubhouse.

Take Advantage of Tetherow’s Pool This Weekend

The pool will close until the spring after this weekend By McKenna Brown   The highly anticipated pool and hot tub at Tetherow are open, and members and lodge guests seemingly can’t get enough. “The pool has seen a great amount of usage,” Hotel General Manager David Lenke said last month. “Over 800 members and their guests have used the pool since opening, and we have seen over 400 hotel guests use the pool.” But this weekend is the last one you can swim in the pool — at least for a little while. The pool will be open through Monday, September 5th (Labor Day) and then will temporarily close to allow for the construction of the Fitness Facility. Both amenities… Read More

Vacation Rental Homes Round Out Tetherow’s Hospitality Options

“There’s just been a need for them, and they’re such a wonderful addition to our lodging offerings.” By Yoko Minoura   An extended vacation doesn’t have to end with a pile of dirty laundry and a list of restaurant charges as long as your arm. At least, not at Tetherow. In Tetherow’s newest neighborhood – The Cairn – seven vacation rental homes are at or near completion. The homes come fully furnished, with a washer, dryer and completely outfitted kitchen. All seven of the homes in Phase 1 have already been sold. While the homes will be owned by individuals, Tetherow Management will manage the properties, handling rental, marketing, housecleaning between guests and maintenance, Vacation Homes Manager Jade Schneringer said….

Tetherow’s New Event Pavilion Will Host Weddings, Parties and More

The new space will create opportunities for lots of fun By Yoko Minoura   Last year, a Tetherow member’s Christmas celebration took place in the golf shop; a few months later, a beer pong tournament for members was shoehorned into the golf cart storage barn. The July opening of the new Event Pavilion, a 3,600-square-foot event space, will hopefully alleviate the space pinch. While the new pavilion is already in use as a wedding venue, the building will also host corporate events, fundraisers and gatherings of all types. “We tried to create opportunities,” Project Manager Erin van der Velde said. “We don’t even know yet what the possibilities are, and that’s what’s going to be fun.” The pavilion, which is attached to Tetherow’s… Read More

A Dog’s Perspective: The Tetherow Experience

“I bet all my buddies at the dog park will be jealous when I tell them about the great trip I had!” By Yoko Minoura I graduated puppy obedience where I learned to walk on a leash, I’ve gotten comfortable with my crate and have received all my shots, so Mom and Dad said I’m ready to travel with them. WOOF! They said we’re going to a place called Bend, Oregon – awarded “Dog Town, USA” by Dog Fancy magazine in 2012. Sounds like my kind of place. First, we stopped at Tetherow, where we’ll be spending a few nights. Mom put my leash on and let me join her in the lobby to check in, where I was able… Read More
