Ringing in 2016 with new developments is on the agenda at Tetherow Resort. Rounding out the resort’s current amenities, the additions include a vacation rental home neighborhood, swimming pool, year-round event pavilion and adventure cabins. Also on deck are golf course enhancements that will empower all levels of golfers with more playability on the exhilarating David McLay Kidd designed Tetherow golf course. All developments will are scheduled for completion by Summer 2016.
November marked the groundbreaking of Phase I of the vacation rental home neighborhood called The Cairn. This unique neighborhood will feature twenty-one homes with three distinctive floor plans ranging from 2,700 to 3,100 square feet with four to five bedrooms and five bathrooms, designed with fine yet functional finishes and ample storage. Prices start at $715,000 and The Cairn will mark the only resort-backed rental program in Bend.
The new event pavilion will boast retractable floor-to-ceiling glass doors to take full advantage of natural light and the sweeping golf course and Cascade mountain views. With 3,600 square feet of versatile space, the pavilion will offer a variety of room sizes and meeting configurations, as well as a separate boardroom and executive meeting space. The facility will create a perfect location for year-round corporate retreats, meetings, events and weddings, and can host events from 12 to 350 people.
“We are eager to offer community members and visitors to Tetherow a top notch, full-service resort experience,” says Chris van der Velde, co-owner of Tetherow Resort.” The expansion of meeting and event space will provide another great place for the Central Oregon community as a whole to come together and host events with outrageous views,” added van der Velde.
Construction of the much-anticipated Tetherow pool also began in November. Housed in the heart of the resort, the pool will be available to Tetherow members and hotel guests. Following its eco-friendly standards, the building will feature solar panels to ensure a comfortable, heated outdoor pool experience all year round; while cabanas, water features, a wine café and hot tubs will provide a luxurious way for guests to retreat to total relaxation.
Lastly, Tetherow will be overhauling its practice range and renovating the green complex on hole number five. The practice range developments will include earth-moving ventures to expand and shape a new tee, along with additional irrigation zones. A new putting green will also be constructed, located directly north and below the existing green. These projects will definitely enhance the “practice experience” at Tetherow next season.
