          We've been looking at accommodations in Canada and it seems the term "hot tub" refers to a personal bath with jets more than the more convivial group tub. Is this the case here? Thank you.

          We stayed in the MacPherson suite. The bathtub did have jets. I agree with other posters about a large tub being outdoors on a deck behind the building.
