Attention winter guests November through March. It is highly recommend you have a four wheel drive vehicle.

Grassy space

The Watchtower is located at our resort among other cabins. However you will have your privacy as there are no shared spaces around your rental. Grilling station, firepit, hot tub, and grassy areas are private for your use. You will also have access to resort amenities such as the pool (shared) and WiFi. The pool is located down the hill approximately 300 yards away. You must walk to the pool and not drive as parking is limited.

Hot Tub Usage

Please note this is a wood burning hot tub. It is a process to use. You must first fill up the tub (1 hour) then load your wood and begin to heat up. The heating process can take anywhere from 3 to 4 hours depending on how warm you wish the water to be. Our recommendation is to start the process in the morning so it will be ready to enjoy in the evening. You must periodically check on the firewood burning and replenish or stoke as needed. Please no one under the age of 18 operating the hot tub. More detailed instructions on how to operate are located in the house manual. Hot tub is for seasonal use. Season is typically from April through November but may vary based on weather conditions. Please inquire about hot tub usage availability if booking in either November or April.

WiFi disclaimer

Please note that we are in the mountains with limited cell towers and cable internet service. When there is a surge of people in the area WiFi and cell service tend to bog down. Service is best early morning before 8 am and after 11 pm as usage is down at these times. This is not a problem just at our resort but all over the area given the terrain and limited cell towers. Weekends are the worst of times and weekdays have much better service as there are less people in the area fighting for the same service.

Guests will have access to the entire property and shared resort amenities.
