What to do in Bend and at Tetherow for Spring Break

Spring is outdoor season

What to do at Tetherow in Spring?

  • The outdoor heated pool is open year-round and is ready for as many cannonballs as you can do! Two hot tubs (one family-friendly, one adults-only) offer pure relaxation after a day of fun.
  • Bring your bike (or rent one at Sagebrush Cycles) and traverse the country’s top mountain bike trails (check out AllTrails.com and Bend Park & Recreation’s trail network); they run through the resort! You can also take a leisurely ride on the 3 mile paved trail around the property.
  • Bluebird days of spring skiing and snowboarding await you at Mt. Bachelor. It’s just 20 mins up the road and Tetherow guests can utilize our hassle-free shuttle.
  • Adjacent to the hotel and the vacation rental homes, Tetherow’s pocket park is a quick and close way for the littles to expend their energy just steps from your front door.
  • The golf season begins on March 24 (weather dependent) and lodging guests enjoy discounted rates on the course. We have 30+ Finn Scooters available to rent in 2024 and they provide a fantastic new way to experience the game.

Sunny days are ahead
