Norma, Professional Housekeeper
Professional Housekeeper Norma Chavez has only been with Bennington Properties for a short time, but has already made a big impact. She makes sure each house is up to the Bennington Properties cleanliness standards, and thus ensures our guests are happy during their stay. Norma comes to Sunriver from Los Angeles.
Norma was born in Mexico City, Mexico. She grew up in a close knit family, including three brothers and one younger sister. Because Norma was closer in age to her brothers, she mainly played games geared toward the boys. Her favorite memories are based around sports; even boxing. Norma emigrated to the United States from Mexico in 1999.
Norma currently lives in Bend with her husband and their three children, two boys and a girl. When not working, her days are filled with taking care of the kids, and being an active participant at her church. But, if she gets a second or two, Norma likes to sit and relax in front of the television.
Norma first discovered Sunriver while visiting a cousin who had moved to Central Oregon. Like most people who come to visit, she immediately fell in love with the area. Norma particularly enjoys our summers and falls. She loves the countless trees, many lakes, picturesque mountains, and the general tranquility of life here. Her boys are in the Boy Scouts, and her family loves to camp. Norma and her family especially like to head to the many local rivers to swim and fish.
“When we have visitors in town, we take them skiing in the winter and fishing in the summer.”
For our first-time visitors to the area, Norma recommends day trips to Bend for shopping and Crater Lake for exploring. She is very happy to have a job at Bennington Properties and loves to come to work each day.
Norma’s Fun Days at Crater Lake National Park
Check out the Lake - Make sure you bring your camera for pictures of the deepest lake in the United States, and ninth deepest in the world. In the summer, there are boat tours and you can swim in the very clear water.
Take a Hike - There are many trails surrounding the lake. Keep your eyes open for the animals in the area, including the Spotted Owls. The Pacific Crest Trail runs through this National Park.
Winter Fun - The park changes dramatically from season to season. Winter activities can run from Mid-October, when they get their first dumping of snow, to June, when the snow finally leaves. There is great snowshoeing and cross country skiing when the weather cooperates.
