A bit of the bubbly

Crazy champagne hot tub, here we come!

I can hardly wait. This little resort in the Poconos promises all manner of tackiness; really, the 7-foot tall champagne hot tub is just the beginning. This place boasts indoor AND outdoor mini-golf, paddle boats, "nightlife," and lots more. It's Disney meets Club Med meets Penthouse, if you catch my drift.

I have a soft spot in my heart for tacky hotels. The year I turned 25, Petunia took me to a different tacky hotel, the John Carver Inn in Plymouth. It's quite a place: John Carver boasts a Pilgrim Theme Pool with a hot tub shaped like the Plymouth Rock and a water slide running through a life-size replica of the Mayflower. I almost peed when I saw it. I always thought nothing could beat the John Carver Inn, but this champagne hot tub looks pretty promising.

My favorite is your comment that you almost peed when you saw the Mayflower pool at John Carver Inn. Also.

Atleast she did not pee in the Mayflower pool!

My favorite was the Plymouth Rock Hot tub.

I've seen these 'tubs' before (in glossy vacation spreads) but never the champagne glass on a pedestal so to speak. How do you get in and out?!?!?!!?

OMG - that hot tub is awesome. You and Petunia *have* to replicate the exact pose of the couple in the ad and get a photo of it. And please check out the "nightlife"! That's one blogworthy vacation you have coming up!
PS - an ex once took me to Niagra Falls for a weekend and our motel had a heart-shaped hot tub with a champagne bottle cooler built into the sides and it was awesome and I feel no shame.

Okay, y'all, here's the deal: There's no heart-shaped bed, but there is an en suite heart-shaped pool! (FYI, the bed is round.) You enter the hot tub through the 4th floor of the suite, which sounds kind of scary if you have a couple Godiva martinis on board. And missscarlet, there'll definitely be a photo shoot. And if there's also a built-in cooler, I'll be in heaven.

You may expect my full report in early June.
