What to do in Bend and at Tetherow this summer

Summer is one of our four favorite seasons

What to do at Tetherow this summer?

  • 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.
  • Rent a cabana for a special poolside day with shade, privacy, treats and relaxation. 2023 Cabana packages coming soon!
  • 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.
  • 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 is in full swing and lodging guests enjoy discounted rates on the course. We have 30+ Finn Scooters available to rent in 2023 and they provide a fantastic new way to experience the game.
  • Bend’s longest slip ‘n slide is available on the golf range on the hottest days of summer. Bring your swimsuit and sense of adventure!
