Our Health Club features two pools, our indoor water playground, one indoor kids hot tub (kept at a lower temperature that is safer for children), and two outdoor adults only hot tubs. In the morning the larger of our two pools hosts open lap swimming with lane markers for our members, in the afternoon it transforms into our kids friendly activity area. 



Overlooking Spruce Run golf course, Governors' Pool is the perfect spot to catch some sun or enjoy a dip in the pool. A seasonal destination, Governors' Pool features a convenient Pool Bar and is located just steps away from the Resort. Please note Governors' Pool is closed for the season.
