4 Season Hot Tub

Relax under the stars or welcome dawn in the sparkling clear hot tub dedicated just for our visitors year round. NOTE – the hot tub is located “down the hill” so there’s a little walk – don’t forget to pack your sandals and suit. Beach towels provided.

When I asked chatgpt to caption this photo this is what we got:
“Driveway Delight: Soak Under the Stars in Our Outdoor Hot Tub!”
Please note the hot tub was installed on the only flat surface in the holler – formerly the fire pit area and actually never our driveway, but we do park nearby. This is a short walk down from the cabin – so be sure to pack sandals or flip flops.
