A LETTER TO OUR GUESTS REGARDING COVID-19
Tu Tu’ Tun Lodge exists and operates in a very special, geographically isolated corner of the world where outdoor therapy and the concept of “social distancing” is essentially our way of life. It’s why my staff and I choose to reside and raise families in this incredible locale. We have and always will be honored to share our home with those that wish to visit.
As of June 30, 2021, the State of Oregon has lifted COVID-19 mandates with respect to masking, distancing and occupancy restrictions, to name a few. In our best-effort to return to a sense of normalcy at the Lodge, please know my staff and I do so with safety and health at the forefront. Therefore, we both welcome the elimination of the mandates while whole-heartedly supporting and respecting all that choose to continue to don masks. We are still in this together.
Throughout this pandemic, we attempted to revamp and adjust services in a thoughtful, responsible manner. This included enhancing cleaning protocols, emphasizing preventative measures through staff use of PPE and sanitization, and re-creating our culinary experience to offer Pacific Northwest-focused cuisine to be enjoyed with distancing and lower guest capacities. In fact, it’s easy to say the most noticeable change has been to the culinary experience. We have temporarily gone away from our group dining format in order to provide parties with their own private tables and a little space from other guests. Even though mandated distancing is no longer required and many of our return guests are eager to partake in our renowned group dining, for better or worse, we are committed to continue private dining throughout the 2021 season.
Rest assured, unless the pandemic worsens or the State reinstitutes mandates, our plan is to enthusiastically return to our traditional family-style dining next year on May 1, 2022.
On that note, thank you for visiting our website and for considering Tu Tu’ Tun Lodge in your future travel plans. Office Hosts are available daily to answer any questions you may have. Please do not hesitate to reach out to us – we’re here for you. We look forward to seeing you when you are ready! Until then, take good care of yourselves and each other.
