Hi there ! We plan on keeping the hot tub and pool open year round. However, should there be extreme weather (such as severe snowstorms) that prevent the heating systems from working, then we will of course have to shut them down. Therefore, they should still be up and running in October. Our bonfires are nightly, and year round as well.
As others have mentioned, the Island is in walking distance from our hotel. There you will find several restaurants such as the Margaritaville and attractions like the Escape Game. Dollywood is another must see, for the whole family. If you have any other questions please feel free to give us a call.
Your Friends at Arbors.
I don't think they have a pet room on the parkway. But, check with them. There is a lot of yard for you to walk your dog and places to set. So maybe it would be worth your stay in the pet friendly room without the balcony.
