A jacuzzi hot tub is conveniently located next to a fully-tiled bathroom suite and just steps away from a year-round sunken cold plunge and seasonal in-ground heated swimming pool. A stone, terraced hillside with recessed, wood-burning fire pit (wood available for purchase) and Adirondack chairs help to complete your quest for relaxation and renewal.
