Recent Murray Model: Things Should Be Back To Normal By Summer

Currently, we are in unprecedented and extremely difficult times. We know that the foreseeable weeks ahead are going to be the most challenging. That said, it is difficult to think about life after the COVID-19 pandemic.

However, right now is the best time to think about the future and give yourself something to look forward to… A VACATION!

The Murray model released 03/31/20 by the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation shows us that things should be back to normal by this summer.

If you are considering taking a vacation and you do not want to get on an airplane, cruise ship, etc. Sunriver is an excellent option! Given the current state we are all faced with, MRP is much more flexible with our cancellation policies on new reservations.

Mountain Resort Properties is a local, small, family owned and operated business that is being greatly impacted by this unprecedented event and we would appreciate your Summer reservations.

Thank you for your consideration in booking your next Sunriver getaway with Mountain Resort Properties. Please tell your family, friends and whoever else you might think would benefit from a Sunriver Summer vacation. We can’t wait to see you in Sunriver!

Reservations can be made online (www.mtresort.com) or by telephone (800.346.6337). We look forward to hearing from you!

From our family to yours, stay home, stay safe and lets do our part in flattening the curve as quickly as possible.

Thank you,

Sunriver, Oregon Update (COVID-19)

As you know by now, a lot has changed in the last week due to the COVID-19 outbreak and we wanted to reach out to you in order to apprise you of what is happening here in Sunriver. We want to reassure you that in these uncertain times regarding travel and your vacation, your safety and well-being continues to be our main priority for you.

The first thing we want you to know is that Sunriver as a community is not shut down, but the restaurant services are limited. This may very well be the perfect time to connect with your family by playing board games, soaking in the hot tub, going on bike rides, hiking and doing so many other things Sunriver has to offer. All that said, we want you to be aware that a number of services are currently closed in Sunriver and the surrounding area. A few of those services include, but are not limited to Mt Bachelor, the SHARC indoor pool only facility and most restaurants for dine in services. Many of the restaurants offer delivery or take out. Several of the restaurants such as the Sunriver Brewing Company and Blondies are offering take out and/or deliveries for food and even growlers of their award- winning beer. The groceries stores and the shops are open as well.

To your safety, our vacation rental homes are thoroughly cleaned, sanitized and disinfected between each stay. In fact, a vacation rental home may very well be one of the safest places you could possibly be during these uncertain times. Our properties are thoroughly cleaned with commercial grade cleaning agents and our linens are washed off site at commercial grade temperatures with commercial grade detergents. We are also taking extra measures to ensure your safety in our vacation rental properties.

It is also important to note that Sunriver has medical services available at High Desert Medicine (HDM). HDM can see patients as needed as well as test for COVID-19 and other illnesses as well. They have modified their office procedures so that there is little to not patient interaction in their common spaces.

In light of the current situation, we want to provide flexibility and assistance to our guests so we have adjusted our rental policies for reservations with stay dates through April 30th to allow you to change your dates of stay if you choose to. We will be following the policies of most major venues and you will be able to move your reservation dates.

Our company is a privately owned, small business. Our staff relies on us to provide their living wage and benefits. Our first priority is to the consumer for safety and our second priority to our staff for a living. As mentioned before, there is no need to cancel your reservation and we want to continue to offer you a safe place to get away from the city and spend quality time with family.

One of the benefits of staying in a vacation rental is that you are sharing the space with people you know and care about. You can cook your own meals in your vacation home a explore beautiful Central Oregon using your personal vehicle. Our outdoor setting is second to none and offers unlimited ability to social distance yourself and family. Another great benefit that we offer is that with most of our properties, you will check in directly at the home through our electronic door lock system. Fresh mountain air on a nice walk or bike ride in Sunriver may very well give you a revived peace of mind.

Mountain Resort Properties has been in close communications with several other locally owned vacation rental management companies here in Sunriver so that we can collectively make the best decisions for the community and our guests. The collection of these companies represents literally hundreds of years of local experience in this industry. All these businesses, including Mountain Resort Properties are taking very similar precautionary measures and adopting similar policies. We all want to thank our valued customers for working with professional management companies as opposed to renting properties that may not hold the same level of professional standards and ability to properly respond to situations like this.

If you rented through a third-party entity (VRBO, AirBnb, Bookingpal etc.) you may have purchased trip insurance and can present a claim directly. Please note that when booking through these third-party booking engines they simply direct you to book through our website and charge you a booking fee of up to 10% of your booking total. It is always better to book directly through the property management company – guaranteed.

We know that this is a personal decision for everyone. It is important to us that you choose what is best for you and your family. Our staff is working very hard to insure you, your family and friends have a restful, worry-free vacation. The weather is transitioning to spring and it will be summer before you know it. We look forward to seeing you.

Warm regards,

The Ever-Changing Weather of Central Oregon (It’s the Best!)

This time a year ago, Central Oregon was covered in a blanket of snow. Parking lots looked like they had mountains, roads looked like frozen rivers, and homes looked like the gingerbread house’s kids decorate during Christmas time. This year, however, is a whole different story.

Since the winter season began back in late December, Central Oregon has only received about 18 inches of total snowfall. Last year, in a span of just 5 days, the area received 16 inches! The two scenes are quite different.

Even though it hasn’t been the Winter most locals are used to, it doesn’t mean that one can’t enjoy everything Winter has to offer. Drive 30 minutes from Sunriver to Mt. bachelor, and you will see more snow than you can probably handle. It is the best part about the area. Spend the morning shredding down the mountain on what is said to be “the best snow in the world,” then head down to Sunriver and enjoy a nice bike ride on the paved paths, and lunch on the patio.

There aren’t too many places in Oregon, let alone the U.S., where one can experience snow on the mountain, then drive 30 minutes to town to walk on clear paths and enjoy the bright sunshine. It is one of the many reasons Central Oregon is a must-see area.

If you have yet to visit the area, put it on your bucket list. And now is the best time to come! Winter is fading to spring, the birds are starting to chirp in the morning, the sun is warm and bright, and the flowers are beginning to bloom. With events and different activities happening every day, it is the perfect place to spend a nice vacation! We can’t wait to see you here!
