          Hi, Does the Deluxe Lake view room have an open air bath like the pictures on the website? In addition, is there a room with a bigger bath available for 5 people. We are a family of 5 with a 6 year old child, would a four person room be suitable ? Thank you

          You can not enter in the bath, but two adults and one child put in face to face.
