Bend, Oregon Tetherow and Selects Dolce International
to Operate 150-room Hotel
BEND, Ore. - Sept. 14, 2006 -- Arrowood Development today announced the name of its new destination resort in Bend, Oregon. Tetherow will be Bend's first 4-star resort and spa, and will be managed by global hospitality company Dolce International.
Arrowood chose Dolce as its hotel partner because of its proven ability to deliver a luxury hotel resort and spa experience with strong local character. Dolce has 22 unique hotels, resorts and conference destinations throughout the US, Canada and Europe.
"We immediately saw that Dolce and Tetherow were a great fit," said Mark DePiero, senior vice president of Dolce International. "From the beautiful yet comfortable accommodations, to the fabulous cuisine, to the abundance of recreational activities in Central Oregon, our guests will be ensured of a wonderful experience."
Arrowood also announced it has selected Ankrom Moisan as architects for the hotel and spa. The firm is known for its high-profile resort designs, including Skamania Lodge in Stevenson, Washington; The Lucia Hotel in Portland; and the Salishan Spa in Gleneden Beach, Oregon, among many others.

Resort Name Has Oregon Roots
The resort's name was inspired by historical Oregon pioneer, Solomon Tetherow, who became the leader of an infamous 1845 wagon train party that became lost in the area near modern-day Bend, and survived largely due to the kindness of the Warm Springs Indians.
Tetherow will include an 18-hole championship style golf course by David McLay Kidd, a members' clubhouse, 150-room four-star hotel with 50 adjoining, high-end cabins for overnight rentals, spa, restaurant, meeting space, 379 single-family homes, and 210 townhomes. David McLay Kidd is the award-winning architect of Bandon Dunes in Oregon, and is currently finishing construction on the new #7 course at St. Andrews in Scotland.
