Hot Tubs/Pools/Saunas/Spas - USE OF THE HOT TUB IS AT YOUR OWN DISCRETION AND RISK. Our hot tubs are professionally cleaned and chemically treated after each guest. However, to make your hot tub experience safer from bacteria, we advise you to run the hot tub between ten to fifteen minutes before entering the hot tub. Please review the hot tub rules with each member of your group. The rules are posted at the hot tub. Hot tub use is strictly at your own choice/risk. By using the hot tub, and by signing the rental agreement, you are absolving Smoky Cabins and the cabin owner of any and all responsibility related to the hot tub or its use.
Persons who have high blood pressure, skin sensitivities, or who might be pregnant are strongly urged not to use a hot tub. If in doubt, please consult with a physician prior to using the hot tub. Hot tubs can cause your blood pressure to rise if you have been drinking. You should also never wear jewelry into a hot tub due to the chemicals used. The chemicals in hot tubs can also affect color-treated hair or damage swimsuits.
Each guest should shower before and after using a hot tub to remove any bacteria they have encountered.
Hot tub covers are for insulation purposes and are not designed to support a person or persons. DO NOT STAND OR SIT ON HOT TUB COVERS, they will break and you may be charged up to $350.00 for replacement. Remember when not using the hot tub, leave cover on so hot tub will stay warm. If you have any questions on how to operate the hot tub, please call during office hours for assistance.
***Hot Tub Readiness - If you are arriving on the same day that another guest leaves your cabin, your hot tub may not be warm enough to use on your first night. We may empty, sanitize each hot tub between guests and refill them with tap water. In winter months, the water temperature could be as cold as 40 degrees and therefore, takes hours to warm up to usable temperatures.
We offer a Guest Protection Plan through CSA Travel Protection. Please see the FAQ's section of our website for complete details. This policy would cover the cost of SOME types of cancellation and would cost you 6.95% of your total reservation price. Please call us for more details.
