Other Beaches

  • Mermaid Echo may be able to visit other local beaches depending on the water quality (current, visibility, depth), guests’ swimming abilities, and beach traffic
  • Echo wants to ensure everyone’s safety, that all of her attention can be focused on the guests (other children at the beach might love mermaids too!)

Hotel Pools

  • Hosts can choose to celebrate at a local hotel pool
  • This option is often the cheapest if an indoor location is desired, or if a private pool is not available
  • The below listed hotels offer open swim fees, or are the cheapest we could find in the St. Croix Valley area (prices subject to change).
    • Hudson House Grand Hotel
      • The Hudson House offers an open swim option for $3.50/person
      • The pool features a shallow and deep end with tables and chairs on the pool deck

      • The Econo Lodge offers an open swim option for $5/person
      • They also allow a party room rental with the use of the pool for $75 for 2 hours and an additional $25 for every hour after that
        • So instead of paying $50 for 10 guests and only getting pool time, a client can chose to pay $75 for pool time and a side room for food, drink, and presents.
