RSMPT has seen me through rehab after three different orthopedic surgeries along with several courses of treatment to improve my back's function. I could go anywhere. I come here because every staff member is skilled, compassionate, and caring. I recommend RSMPT whenever the opportunity presents itself.

My husband and I stayed here three nights when we traveled to Oregon to attend graduation at the University of Oregon. I could not have improved one little thing. It was really that impeccable. The sense of well-being settled on me the moment we arrived on the property. Every detail of the common areas and our room was intentional and gorgeous. Different matching coffee mugs every morning in our room? Yes. Understated, warm, thoroughly executed style that said, "relax. unwind"? Yes. Charming, knowledgeable hostess? Yes. Privacy respected? Yes. Food that is beyond incredible? Yes, that too. Just go there. Now.
