Careful attention has been paid to every detail to anticipate your basic needs and decadent desires. Even sanitized Crocs are provided for your enjoyment and make it convenient when using the outdoor hot tub - especially in the winter.
THE OUTDOOR SPACE:
On the nearly 3-acre, beautifully landscaped property, you can choose from taking a dip in the large in-ground concrete heated swimming pool, soaking in the six-person hot tub (open year-round), lounging around the pool deck, grilling out on our gas grill (propane provided) and dining al fresco under the pergola - all within the complete privacy of the 6-foot cedar fence. There are plenty of pool chairs, rafts, noodles and both traditional and 'zero-gravity' pool loungers. Beyond the fence, an additional acre of trees and lawn includes a large gravel fire pit with adirondack chairs for bonfires, a hammock, and plenty of space for lawn games. The selection of lawn games we provide ebbs & flows depending on availability and which games our guests tend to leave behind after their stay, so we encourage you to bring any games you feel passionate about and you are welcome to leave any behind for others to enjoy.
