With the purchase of a Day Pass, you can book a private 1 hour session in our wood-fired hot tub.
2. Go Skating on Pinus Lake
Gliding hand in hand across the frozen surface of the lake, you feel the exhilarating chill of the winter air against your cheeks. The crisp sound of your skates cutting through the ice echoes across the serene landscape. Snow-capped trees line the shore, creating a picturesque backdrop for your romantic adventure. With each graceful stride, you and your partner share laughter and smiles, lost in the beauty of the moment. Just bring your skates!
3. Winter Forest Bathing
Hand in hand, you traverse the snow-covered forest bathing trail, leaving footprints behind in the pristine powder. The winter sun filters through the trees, casting a soft, golden glow on the landscape. Wrapped in warm layers, you and your partner share quiet moments of connection amidst the tranquility of the snowy forest. With each step, you breathe in the crisp, fresh air, feeling invigorated and alive. As you reach a secluded clearing, you pause to admire the breathtaking beauty of nature and steal a kiss under the gently falling snowflakes. Being present with your loved one is a present worth giving. Snowshoes are available!

In the intimate glow of the infrared sauna, you and your partner bask in the soothing warmth together. The gentle heat envelops your bodies, melting away tension and fostering relaxation. As you sit side by side, you feel a sense of closeness and connection deepening with each passing moment. Each Day Pass comes with a 1 hour private infrared sauna session.
