Black Butte Ranch Reservation Policies

Please review the following reservation policies and let us know if there’s anything we can do to make your stay even more enjoyable. Please call the Welcome Center at 541-595-1252 with your questions.

Vacation Rental Details

  • The Ranch Access and Community Recreation Fee is 12% of the nightly rate for all short-term renters staying on the Ranch (rates are subject to change). These access fees help to offset some of the costs associated with maintaining Ranch facilities.
  • Vacation Rental rates are subject to 8% Deschutes County room tax and an additional 1.8% Oregon state tax.
  • Rates are per night; minimum night stays may apply.
  • During our high season* we require a four-night minimum stay when staying over a Friday or Saturday in a full service accommodation.
  • Cleaning fees apply to the duration of the stay unless otherwise noted and are subject to the 8% Deschutes County tax
  • Upon check-in, BBR Corporation authorizes $300.00 for Ranch charging privileges and/or damages. BBR Corporation strongly encourages the use of credit cards for the authorization, rather than debit cards.
  • Full service accommodations are those cabins, homes and condos that include a kitchen (Excludes Lodge Rooms).
  • The Ranch offers some pet-friendly vacation rentals. If the home is listed as pet friendly, the home allows up to 2 dogs with a pet fee of $60 per pet ($64.80 with tax). If a unit is not listed as “pet friendly,” then pets are not permitted in that home, including on the property and service animals due to allergies. Whether a home is pet-friendly or not is at the sole discretion of each homeowner. Cleaning fees for dogs found in non-pet-friendly accommodations are subject to a deep clean charge that starts at $200, but could exceed $3,000 for hypoallergenic cleans.
  • All vacation rentals are smoke-free. This includes recreational and medical marijuana.
  • All vacation rentals are privately owned. ADA certified properties are not available on site. We do have recommendations of homes that are more accessible for handicapped guests.
  • Regular check-in time starts at 4pm. While we do our best to accommodate requests for early check-ins, we are unable to guarantee that homes will be ready prior to the 4pm check-in time. Early check-ins are not available during peak business times. You are always welcome to arrive early the day of arrival to begin enjoying the facilities. The front desk will take your phone number and call you when your accommodation is ready.
  • Checkout time is 11am. Late checkouts are based on availability, and are not available during peak business times. Please call the Welcome Center on the day of your departure and, if possible, we will arrange for a later checkout.
  • Unauthorized late checkouts will be billed for an additional night.
  • Rates and home descriptions are subject to change without notice.
