The Setting


Due to a prank by one of our Fae friends, the Aqua Springs property now has a large forest of apple trees. The front of the main building is partially hidden by the trees, which have also fused with the building itself. There are also many trees behind the building, with paths leading to the various areas of the resort.

Enter through the main doorway, and there are four doorways to choose from. The door leading to the lodge is next to the one leading to the men's locker room. Next to the entrance to the women's locker room, there is an indoor entrance to Gwee's Pet Spa. The front wall of the entry room, facing outwards, is made of glass. Between the two hallways that lead to the locker rooms is an information desk with an NPC attendant (usually Jessi or Haley) to answer any questions you might have. Some Aqua Springs merchandise also offered for sale at the information desk. There is a small display area for artwork along the sides of the entryway.

Down the hallways are restrooms, shower stalls, and a large locker room. Another hallway has recently been added. It leads to Gwee's Pet Spa, allowing owners to drop off their pets without going outside. On the other side of the lobby is a double doorway which leads to the addition to the building, where the lounge is located. Gwee's Pet Spa now has an indoor bath, which is large enough for most animals to sit comfortably in. There is a hallway connecting this and the main building to the playhouse, with a door going outside to the playground.

The locker rooms have doorways that lead onto the pool deck. Behind the building is the deck, which slopes down into a shoreline entry into the pool, changing to cement just before the waterline. The pool gets gradually deeper as you move into it. Midway down the pool on one side are two waterslides, one large, curved, and one smaller, straight. On the other side is a swim-up smoothie bar that is also accessible from the pool deck. At the far end of the pool are low and high diving boards. NPC lifeguards are placed at intervals around the edge of the pool.

A wide white stucco deck surrounds the pool. The deck has lounge chairs scattered around for anybody wishing to sunbathe. There are also several tables with umbrellas near the smoothie bar. There are NPC's walking around to take care of any problems you may have, as well as serve drinks from the smoothie bar. There are a few apple trees around the edges of the deck, offering shaded seating areas.

On the side of the deck with the smoothie bar, there are several carnival-type games set up. There are NPC's in attendance to explain the rules and hand out any supplies needed to play.

On the other side of the deck, there is a fenced off area with a sign over a gate. The sign reads Gwee's Pet Spa. The pet spa offers grooming, a special pool for pets (and their owners if desired), a sunbathing area, a grassy place for pets to run or roll around, and a pet food bar. All of the food at the bar is prepared by Chef Karrie's staff, and is designed to tempt even the pickiest eaters. In the grassy area there is some pet-friendly playground equipment. There are toys available for the pets to play with both in and out of the water.

Beside the pet area are two 4-person hot tubs. Each hot tub is inside a gazeebo for some privacy and shade. They have user-accessible controls for temperature.

The locker rooms also have a second door leading to a room between them, behind the entry room. This room has a hot tub large enough for ten people. The wall looking outside toward the pool is glass like the front wall of the entry room.

All hot tubs are open throughout the year.

The lounge has a large fireplace and rustic furnishings. Along one side of the lounge is a counter where you can order refreshments, which include apple cider, hot chocolate, coffee, various seasonal fruit pastries, and a few lighter meal items. Apple pastries are the specialty, due to the quantity of apples grown on-site. Boxed lunches are also available to take to the picnic areas. The walls are mostly cleared, being used to exhibit artwork by local artists. There is also a locked case for smaller sculptures, crafts, or other artwork along one wall. Next to the case is a small raised stage with a podium and microphone for use during the Art Nights.

The trolley car makes stops at the main entrance, the side entrance to the lodge, and the rental building, which is selling refreshments, as well as skiing, sledding, and ice skating equipment. Cold and hot drinks and boxed lunches are available there. There are tables, chairs, and benches scattered in a rough circle in front of the rental shack. In the center of the circle is a fire pit, where there is often a bonfire at night.

Behind the rental building is Amy's Garden. Spaces are available for anybody who would like to display a sculpture outside. Ask Kits for details.

The ice rink has been prepared for winter activities. One side is sectioned off for curling, while the rest is open for free skating. Ice rink closed for the season.

The ski lift starts near the ice rink. A stairway climbs the hill next to it. On top of the hill a small pavillion has been built with picnic tables inside and outside. There is also a playground nearby. NPC's will be standing by to assist anybody who needs help. Skiing closed for the season, ski lift available by request (to an NPC)


Newer Areas


Through the forest, several paths have been cleared for hiking. They are all labeled so that nobody can get lost. Some of the paths are big loops, while some lead to picnic areas. Most of them start outside the lounge, but some begin near the rental building. Color-coded signs are posted at the head of each trail, at various intervals along the path, and at each intersection. Maps are available in both the lounge and at the rental building for a small donation.

NOTE: The following quoted posts were moved in the exact order of their postings, 12.12.2011.

Cuwen
Amy walked out of the pet area and smiled as she looked around her. It was time for the grand opening to begin. The music was playing through the speakers, various staff members were lined up with trays of smoothies and other various fruity drinks, there were a couple lifeguards on duty, and there was a bartender in the pool bar. She would most likely run the pool bar most of the time but not for the grand opening.

There were also various streamers and balloons around the area. Amy couldn't believe that everything had come together so well in such a short amount of time. She had had so much help.

Amy went and stood by the entrance, ready to greet people who came in. She hoped Kits would arrive soon.

Cuwen
Amy gasped as she remembered that she had forgotten to post in the main town area. She quickly pulled aside one of her staff members and asked them to take one of the extra posters that were stored in the supply closet and post it in the main town area.

Kits Rose
*walks in* I'm sorry I'm late, Amy! sweatdrop

Cuwen
Amy smiled brightly when she saw Kits and went over and hugged her. "Hey, Kits! It's okay. You're here now!"

She pulled back and turned around to look at everything around them. "So, what do you think?"

Kits Rose
*looks around* I think it looks great! mrgreen This place looks so huge!

Cuwen
Amy smiled brightly and nodded. "Yes, it does! And Thistle is already in the indoor pet area. She wanted to come to the opening really badly, but I was nervous because she's been sick. I don't think she's contagious anymore, but I told her that she could come as long as she rested inside. She loves the area! I hope other pets will, too."

She started walking toward the pool area and then sat down on one of the lounge chairs. One of the waiters went over to Kits and held out a tray of different fruit drinks to her.

"Are you going to bring any of your pets here?"

Kits Rose
I'll bring them eventually. I thought there would be more people here tonight, so I left them at home. *takes a drink from the tray* I'll go see Thistle. I don't want her to feel left out, even though she's here.

*walks over to the pet area and goes inside the building, looking for Thistle*


Amy nodded. "I was, too, but it's also pretty early. Most people don't show up until later in a party."

She nodded when Kits got up to go see Thistle. "Alright. I just came from there, but she'll be happy to see you!"

When Thistle heard someone come inside the plush pet area, she turned her head and then squeaked when she saw Kits. She had been lying on a large pink pillow watching TV.

*sets her drink down and kneels next to Thistle* Hey Thistle. How're you doing? *reaches over and pets Thistle's mane*

Thistle squeaked again and then stood up on the pillow. Her eyes were much wider and full of sparkle now. Her squeak still sounded a little congested, though. Thankfully, it wasn't too bad.

She walked over to Kits and then nuzzled her neck. Her tail flicked against Kits' arm playfully.
