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 COVID-19 vaccinations are administered in 2021, we all attempt to return to a sense of normalcy and my staff and I do so with safety and health at the forefront. The State of Oregon has mandatory measures in-place and our team is committed to complying with such mandates; essentially doing what we can to mitigate the spread of the virus while doing our best to maintain a high level of service. We want to assure you we take this seriously and everyone’s well-being is our priority now more than ever with the proverbial light at the end of the tunnel approaching.
Throughout the pandemic in 2020, we revamped and adjusted 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 changes were to the culinary experience and will, for better or worse, continue to be during at least the first half of 2021. Yet with the leadership of Executive Chef Austin Stein and our veteran kitchen crew we embrace this ongoing challenge in-effort to deliver high quality, inspired meals in our comfortable setting. For more information regarding food service at the Lodge during COVID-19, please visit the DINING page on our website.
Rest assured when it’s safe to do so and the State of Oregon lifts mandates, we will enthusiastically return to our traditional family-style dining.
On that note, thank you for visiting our website and for considering Tu Tu’ Tun Lodge in your future travel plans. The Lodge will reopen for guest reservations beginning Friday, February 12, 2021. In the meantime, Office Hosts are available 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.
