Tami Price

We know many of you have talked to Tami when booking your stay with Ruttger’s Bay Lake Lodge. It is always so nice to put a face with a name and get to know that person behind the phone, so….meet Tami Price! Tami is starting her 18th year with us and her knowledge of the resort is vast as she was born and raised right here in the area. Just like Ruttger’s Bay Lake Lodge is family owned and operated, Tami has that same belief and strong family bond. She has been married for 35 years to Randy, who also works at Ruttger’s! Even Tami’s daughter was an employee when she was 14 to age 21. Pretty awesome! We asked Tami some questions about her and about the resort…make sure to see the last question and find out the best time of year to visit us.

Meetings & Events – Save Money Planning Your Next Event

Posted on: May 6th, 2013 by admin

Here is one quick tip to save money as you plan your next meeting or event. Once a location has been chosen, take a few minutes to do a little more research. Find out when “peak” season is for the area through internet searches, Convention & Visitors Bureau or a local chamber of commerce website. Once you have obtained this information plan your event on either side of this window. For substantial savings, plan the event three or more months outside of this time frame. Work with your onsite contact to find out if by moving the event one or two days during the week could save you money as well. Sometimes shifting your event by as little as 24 hours can save a lot of money to the bottom line.

For more information about planning an event at Ruttger’s, you can contact us at 800.450.4545 or you can request a proposal at our website:

Happy Planning!
