Hello, Thank you for your review! I'm glad you enjoyed your anniversary weekend at our hotel. Our hottubs are perfect this time of year to sit and relax in after a long day of exploring. It's great to hear you used our guest bikes. We have them maintained weekly, but we encourage guests to let us know when they need something other than the regular maintenance they receive. We can't wait to see you again next year!
