The Riverhouse is an ideal host hotel with 175 rooms set aside for Holiday participants, as well as abundant meeting rooms, conference facilities and parking. The hotel will offer attendees rates of $149 for property view rooms, $169 for river view rooms and $179 for premium river view rooms with fireplaces. The Sisters Rooms, overlooking the Deschutes river, will be our Hospitality Suite, hosting light snacks and time appropriate beverages as well as On-site Registration and the Goodie Store. The adjoining Deschutes Conference Center will host the Saturday Awards Celebration. The hotel has plenty of parking next to attendee’s rooms as well as a large lot next to the Convention Center for trucks and trailers. Bend is known as being dog friendly; pets are allowed for $25 per night in selected rooms. Attendees wishing to extend their stay either prior to or after August 26-30th may do so for up to three days at the Holiday rate, based on availability, which is about $100 less than standard rates that time of year.
Once we have met the 175 room capacity at the Riverhouse, reservation agents will direct attendees to nearby hotels that have similar rates. For those attending in an RV, camping is available about 4 miles from the Riverhouse at Tumalo State Park Campground. The organizers will reserve a few adjoining sites available on a first-come-first-served basis.
