Spa & Pool at the Crooked Cabana
The idea behind the Crooked Cabana came from taking the architecture of the 1848 Italianate Mansion on the property and literally “skewing” and “twisting” it to create a whimsical experience for our guests to look at while lounging by the swimming pool or strolling around the property. A much larger building than it looks like on the outside, it is not only a pool cabana, but it also boasts an 8-person hot tub, a dry sauna, a spa relaxation area, two spa treatment rooms, three bathroom/changing rooms, and a large recreation room with TV area, conference table for 14, gaming area, and bar. We had so many big dreams for the grand opening of this building and its facilities in 2020, but due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we were forced to limit its facilities for everyone’s safety. Therefore the recreation area, bar, and our massage treatment rooms are currently closed, but we are hopeful that we will be able to open some of these amenities at some point for the summer of 2021. Similar to the rules and restrictions for scheduling time slots for usage of the Spas at The Roxbury Motel, usage of the heated swimming pool and spa facilities for our Stratton Falls location must be scheduled in advance and guests pay $20 per person per stay (not per day) for a “pool and spa pass” and your card key will be programmed to allow for access during the hours of operation. The pool and spa pass also gives you access to the spa facilities at our motel location, so you can do lots of “spa hopping” during your stay! The Roxbury at Stratton Falls pool and spa area is located at 48 County Highway 41. It is two miles directly down the road from The Roxbury Motel on the left-hand side and is marked by a large sign that says “The Roxbury at Stratton Falls.” Please note that en route you will see a sign on the right hand side for “The Roxbury Barn and Estate.” This is a wedding venue and NOT our establishment, so please do not turn into that facility.
Hours of operation and guidelines for our Stratton Falls pool and spa facilities during the COVID-19 pandemic are as follows (PLEASE NOTE THE SWIMMING POOL IS CLOSED FOR WINTER AND WILL RE-OPEN IN MAY 2021):
HOT TUB AND DRY SAUNA: The hot tub dry sauna area at the Stratton Falls Crooked Cabana is available in 45-minute time slots from 8:00am to 8:00pm daily. For your safety, for any given time slot usage is limited to groups traveling together only. We must ask you to be punctual with your departure because our staff comes in to sanitize and clean the area in 15-minute time slots between each usage. Back-to-back time slots cannot be scheduled for the same group unless pre-approved by management. While you are in your time slot, feel free to use the spa phone to call the front office to see if you can stay longer. Multiple time slots are possible throughout the day but depend upon demand. A time slot can be last-minute, so if you see a slot available on the online calendar, feel free to grab it! Please note that the hot tub and dry sauna are inside the cabana and the swimming pool is outside the cabana. Guests from the pool must walk past the hot tub area to get to the cabana restrooms, sauna, and treatment rooms. We ask that guests please wear masks while walking in the hallways or in the bathrooms at the cabana. Of course while actually in the hot tub or sauna masks should not be worn.
SWIMMING POOL: The heated swimming pool at the Stratton Falls Crooked Cabana is open from 10:00am to 6:30pm daily with three available time slots for booking 2.5 hours at the pool per day: 10am, 1pm, and 4pm. Due to mandates from the NY State Dept. of Health (we are waiting for new guidelines from the DOH for the summer of 2021), we must limit the pool and its entire deck area to 14 guests during each time slot and only 10 people in the water at any given time. Usage is not restricted to only groups that are traveling together, however the other Health Department mandates that make usage of the swimming pool possible during the pandemic include:
- Maintain 6 feet social distance both in and out of the water
- While out of the water, wear a face mask covering both the nose and mouth if there is any chance of coming within 6’ of another person or if another person unexpectedly approaches
- While in the water, maintain 6 feet social distance
- DO NOT wear face masks while in the water
WHEN SCHEDULING SWIMMING POOL TIME SLOTS IN THE LINK BELOW, PLEASE BE SURE TO USE THE DROP-DOWN MENU TO SELECT THE TOTAL NUMBER OF PEOPLE IN YOUR PARTY. SINCE THERE ARE ONLY 14 PEOPLE ALLOWED IN THE POOL AREA AT A TIME, IT CAUSES PROBLEMS IN OVERBOOKING IF YOU, FOR INSTANCE, ONLY RESERVE ONE SLOT BUT YOUR GROUP IS ACTUALLY FOUR PEOPLE. ALSO, IN ORDER TO BE FAIR TO ALL GUESTS WHO WOULD LIKE TO USE THE SPAS AND POOL, PLEASE REFRAIN FROM SCHEDULING BACK-TO-BACK TIME SLOTS ON THE SAME DAY. AT THE BEGINNING OF A TIME SLOT ON THE DAY OF YOUR APPOINTMENT, IF NOT ALL TIMES HAVE BEEN FILLED, YOU CAN EXTEND YOUR APPOINTMENT. WE WANT YOU TO USE EVERYTHING AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE, BUT WE ALSO WANT TO GIVE EVERYONE A CHANCE! AND IF YOU CANNOT MAKE YOUR SCHEDULED TIME SLOT WE ASK YOU TO PLEASE PLEASE CANCEL YOUR APPOINTMENT SO THAT IT FREES UP THE TIME FOR OTHER GUESTS WHO MAY NOT HAVE BEEN ABLE TO SCHEDULE A SLOT! JUST CALL OR STOP BY THE FRONT OFFICE AND WE CAN CANCEL IT FOR YOU.
