Hot Tub Policies:

Hot tubs are cleaned and chemically sanitized prior to each guest’s arrival. Because the hot tubs may be filled prior to each guest stay, the water may not be warm until the night of your arrival. Your hot tub temperature has been set between 100-104 degrees prior to your arrival, and appropriate temperature and settings have been verified by a member of management today. For your convenience, a hot tub instructional card has been included in your arrival envelope.

When the hot tub is not in use during your stay, please leave the cover on so the hot tub will maintain its temperature and debris will stay out. If you press any buttons or leave the cover off for an extended period of time and your hot tub becomes unusable, no refunds will be given. DO NOT STAND OR SIT ON THE HOT TUB COVERS. They will break. Please note that hot tub covers are fragile and have a replacement cost of $350.00. The cover has been inspected prior to your arrival. In the event that the hot tub cover is discovered to be damaged after your departure, your credit card on file will be charged.

In the event that the hot tub cover is left off and the temperature decreases, buttons are pressed and the hot tub loses temperature resulting in the hot tub being in “Economy Mode” (EC), or any type of service requiring a member of the Edgewater Staff to service hot tub, a $25 service fee will be charged to your credit card regardless of the temperature not having enough time to rise.

There are health risks associated with the use of hot tubs. Use with discretion and at your sole responsibility. Please shower before using the hot tub as some body lotions/etc. mixed with the hot tub chemicals can cause a rash on your skin or cause the water to foam.
