A&R Development purchases central Oregon lodge

Dave Schrott and Robert Sacks of A&R Development have purchased The Lodge at Suttle Lake in Sisters, Ore., from Ronda Sneva for $1.5 million. The resort includes an 11-room lodge, 16 cabins, a marina and restaurant.

The lodge was listed for sale at $2.7 million in August 2014 and had been as high as $3.7 million earlier that year. The property will be A&R's first project in central Oregon. The group has targeted two portions of the lodge in immediate need of upgrades — The Boathouse restaurant and the marina, both of which were damaged during a spring 2014 flood.

What can you be doing now to power through and set yourself up for a prosperous 2021 and beyond? Join us at Part 3 of Hotel Optimization – A Virtual Event on January 27 from 10am – 1:05pm ET for expert panels focused on getting you back to profitability.
