Thanks for your review! We are glad you had a nice time. Yes you do need to bring linens, as mentioned in our listing. We do have 2 local linen delivery services that cover our area so if you ever want to rent linens instead of bringing them just let us know and we can provide you with those phone numbers. :) Regarding the hot water heater, I wish you would have mentioned that during your stay as I would have had my handyman look into it - although it's possible if you had 10 adults trying to shower back to back that you would run out of water since it's a 100 gallon heater and not an on-demand system since we have electric heat. If you did go through 100 gallons of water, it's possible that it would have run out and needed to refill/reheat. The hot water heater is only 1 year old, but I will have my handman look at it to make sure there is no issue. Thanks for letting me know!
