We were on our way back to Eagle County after a few days skiing at Telluride, so I probably still had that iconic 80's ski movie playing in my head, but as soon as I slipped into the hot water after a chilly dash from our room at the guesthouse I felt an instant " Blizzard of Ahhhhhs"! The pools... More

I love the fact that it's not a big spa with big pools, but that it's set in a very nice surrounding, very authentic, at the foot of the mountains. The best place ever to relax and forget about everyday trouble. And Benji at the entrance was super nice and super helpful!

First time I've been here in the winter. Air temp was around 10 this afternoon but around the pools it was quite comfortable. Three pools were active, but no one spent much time in the coolest one. Holiday price for the day was $18; usual is $15. This is a very low-tech, casual place, but quite pleasant. All pools are... More

We love this hot spring! It is small and rustic for sure, but the multiple pools and several different temperatures means there is a place for everyone. We have also had massages ... never been disappointed. Not sure I'd stay the night here, though.

I have been to the Cottonwood Hot Springs a few times and probably won't go back again. The first couple times I was there with just my husband. We had an OK time. The place is pretty run down for how much money they charge to get in. They are improving it slowly, but it's still overpriced for the current... More

Tucked away about 5 miles outside of Buena Vista right on the river. My sister and I got cabin #2 .. rustic and wonderful. The beds were very comfortable, has a kitchen that works great with all we need. You could sleep 8 in here but wow that would be tight sleeping arrangements! I would say 6 would be ok... More

S fantastic hot springs. Magic waters and peaceful vibe. Yes, there are lots of signs dictating behavior.. But it helps everyone understand the norm. Several pools with varying temperatures... From warm bath to super hot. Some pools shaded..much appreciated. Right now they are renovating so not optimal...but the water and quiet are heavenly. Stayed in an overpriced funky cabin...reviewed separately... More

My excellent wife and I have been here 4 time on 2 hot springs tours. Excellent water quality, super pool design, 10 minutes from town.They have rooms and private cabins, but are toooo pricey for us. Oh and they're strict about NO alcohol. Just love the place. It costs about 20 bucks apiece.I wish there were locking lockers, but felt... More

After several visits to this place over the years, on my annual visit to Colorado, and having read other reviews here, I have decided to add my two cents. It's important to note that the intention here is not to be the fanciest or most luxurious hot springs in Colorado, but one of the more laid back and relaxing. This... More
