Roads End VRD Rules as of November 23rd, 2017:

"In the R-1-RE (Roads End Residential) zone, all existing licensed vacation rentals and those with complete applications as of November 23, 2017 are allowed to continue as legal non-conforming uses without limits on the number of nights they may be rented, as long as the licenses are kept current and meet all regulations.   These properties may also be sold for a period of seven years from November 23, 2017 without loss of the non-conforming status.

When the total number of nonconforming unlimited VRDs in the R-1-RE zone is reduced to 10 percent of the total number of lots in that zone, a cap of 10 percent shall be triggered on such unlimited VRDs and all existing nonconforming unlimited VRDs under the cap will be rendered permitted uses.

If you are buying a home in Roads End that is not currently a VRD, it must meet all land use standards (parking, landscaping, etc.) and will be limited to "accessory use" (no more than 30 rental nights per year).  Please contact the Planning Department at 541-996-1226 to learn more about the VRD land use and licensing process."
