Maintenance Team

Gene and Robert Bennington, father and son, were our original "Maintenance Techs."  Over the years we have been fortunate to have some very talented men and women join our team.  Our maintenance team is responsible for the care of our vacation homes 12 months out of the year as well as being available to our guests and owners 24 hours, 7 days a week.  Our fast and efficient service has been a hallmark of the Bennington Properties brand since the first day we opened our doors for business.  The following are the current men and women of our Sunriver vacation rental maintenance team.
