Virus Updates: We take the virus very seriously, and am practicing social distancing with all our guests. We have modified the resort to reduce contact, while still providing most of the activites are guests have come to love. What is affected is our goat yoga, hopefully soon, but for now we do not want goats eating food from one guests hand to the next. We still enjoy daily goats walks, following socially distant guidlines and that has worked well. Our pizza oven is not in use and our tiny store has turned into a text message ordering system which has worked well. In terms of cleaning, the tiny houses are disinfected inside, cleaned outside (grill, furniture), then inside is cleaned and disinfected again, outside disinfected on the way out. We have reduced the amount of kitchen items to single use, ketchup, mustard, and cooking supplies, pots and pans are reduced as every item gets a cleaning between guests. Should you require additional cooking utensils, we have just text and we will supply. We are open, operating well, and welcome guests to enjoy our little bit of naturally distanced nature.
Our Pool: How are you maintaining social distance at the pool? Our capacity pre virus was 35, we now limit the deck to 10 people, deck is marked with spacing, and 6 people in the pool. Our pool is treated with Bromine, and this is tested 3-5 times a day. We supply signs and disinfectent for guests to spray before and after on lounge chairs. Our experience with the pool has been our guests are super considerate, and we have not had any issue with crowding. Many of the houses see the pool from the deck and guests wait for a spot, most guests have had the pool to themselves, not a single complaint about over crowding, or not enough time. Please note we do not permit anyone not fully toilet trained in the pool or on the pool deck. If you have a small child or infant, they will not be permitted in the pool area there is no exception. We will supply a private kiddie pool to your house.
