Response from the owner My home and my personal hot tub is on the same property as the vacation rental cottage, however, it is tucked away and not in view from the cottage and over the past 15 years I have never had vacation cottage guests help themselves to it. When I asked this guest how he knew about the hot tub he told me that his father had told him that he had talked to me about it cleared it with me. I responded by telling him that his father never contacted me and that the hot tub was off limits to cottage guests. I also explained to him that due to COVID I would probably need to drain it and refill it or shock it with lots of chlorine so there would be an additional charge of $25.00 for this. I also told him that he did not put the thermal cover and lid back on correctly and the noise of the motor continually running alerted me. I may have sounded snarky because I was upset that his father would tell him a lie and that the tub was not left the way it was found. I do not think that telling him that an additional charge of $25.00 was out of line but apparently he did because after telling me that he would leave the $25.00 in the cottage at check out he did not. There is now a locked lid on my personal hot tub to avoid any 'misunderstandings' in the future.
