WINTER RECOMMENDATION - PLUG IN FOR VEHICLES - BRING YOUR OWN EXTENSION CORD OR PURCHASE ONE FROM OUR GIFT SHOP

Due to our extreme temperatures during several winter months, it is recommended that guests driving rental or personal vehicles have a heavy duty outdoor rated extension cord in their vehicle. Limited plug-ins are available at the for guest use. We will do everything possible to assist guests in finding a plug in space so their vehicles do not freeze up overnight. The best time to look for an open plug-in if you are staying overnight, is after the pool house closes at 12 Midnight when the day trippers head back to town. If you forget to bring one or don't have one with you, simply proceed to our Front Desk - Gift Shop to purchase a 25 ft. cord for $24 each.
