Making Memories at Tetherow

Tetherow Wedding

With a unique style that is both rustic and refined, Tetherow beckons back to Central Oregon’s rural roots while still providing a luxurious experience for those who visit. Indulge in tasty Pacific Northwest dining, wine flights, group yoga and pampering before the big day, or get playful with a round of golf on a world-class course or poolside relaxation before or after the ceremony.

Where to Say “I Do”

The resort offers two main options for wedding ceremonies—the event pavilion or the event lawn, both offering sweeping views of the Cascade Range and a golden hour sunset with excellent lighting and views for photos. The pavilion features retractable glass doors and a variety of room configurations for events of different sizes, with the Newberry-Zaal Ballroom the showpiece room of the pavilion. Tetherow’s outdoor space is a manicured lawn below the clubhouse with views of Deschutes National Forest and the golf fairways below. Alternatively, couples can opt to reserve one of the vacation rentals for a more private, elopement style wedding and an intimate gathering. 


Tetherow has room for all with around forty vacation homes available for reservation, all equipped with full kitchens, fireplaces, private hot tubs and patio areas. These rentals are offered in sizes ranging from one to five bedrooms, creating a range of experiences. The resort also has fifty hotel rooms available for reservation, all offering a variety of views and amenities. All lodging options on site are only a five minute walk from the main event spaces.

Proudly utilizing local purveyors whenever possible, the dishes created by the catering team at Tetherow are local, fresh and delicious. Try appetizers like Wagyu sirloin tartare or smoked salmon mousse, or entrees such as salisbury steak with Cascade natural beef and Oregon mushroom demi glaze. Champagne toasts are available along with a full service bar option, serving up drinks like the Fireberry, a special ginger cocktail recipe unique to Tetherow. 


Guests can plan for an adventurous stay at Tetherow, with golf on-site, mountain biking and hiking trails adjacent to the resort and the mountains just up the road on Century Drive. Shuttle service is available for trips into town or stay at the resort to enjoy Tetherow Sport with a gym, fitness classes, on-call massage therapists, saunas and steam rooms, as well as hot tubs, a pool and cabana for rent.
