Today our gazebo focus will be on the ever popular hot tub and gazebo combo. I don't know why I've never thought about the two being together.The magnitude of the impact of such a simple move is unbelievable. It could be likened to someone deciding to pair up peanut butter and jelly. Now don't get me wrong, I love being able to sit in the hot tub and gaze up at the stars. Probably my best memory is my wife and I doing just that on our honeymoon and then we......*blushes*...oh where was I? Right. The hot tub gazebo combo.
Ok, so there you are in your hot tub enjoying a glass of wine and all is at peace in the world, then it happens. Rain begins to fall from the sky. Now you may shrug this off and say, "big deal, I'm in a hot tub, I'm already wet." That very well may be true, but is your towel supposed to get wet? What about your radio? Enjoy your wine watered down? With the combo you get the best of both worlds.
The gazebo is going to give you a nice covering from the weather, be it rain, sleet, hail, or snow. Your hot tub time will almost be as reliable as the mailman. Not to mention the added benefits of going with a screened in gazebo. This eliminates any pesky insects trying to take a dip in the warm ocean. (I suppose it would be an ocean to a little bug, I don't know, next time I get the chance I'll ask a fly)
I know one thing, if money wasn't an issue, I would have about six gazebos in the backyard and at least two of them would be centered around a hot tub. Something just gives it a safer feel. I remember on my honeymoon I kept thinking, what if some critter or perhaps a snake comes slinking into this hottub. With the shelter you don't have to worry about it.
How extravagant or cheap you want to be is all up to you. Gazebos range in price depending on size, material, and features. Do you want some small and cozy for just two in the hot tub, or do you want the neighbors to be able to sit around along with a snack table? These are all things to think about when you decide to take the plunge on a hot tub and gazebo combo. Take your time and shop around. Check back for more on gazebos.
