I have gone to Cottonwood for years. Recently I have noticed green algae in the water. Something I have never seen there before. Now the last 2 times I went , my girlfriend developed bacterial folliculitis and now I just got it Easter weekend from going there. Pseudomonas aeruginosa is found in hot tubs and spas/hot springs when the chlorine... More

It had been a decade since we last visited the Springs & we pleasantly surprised how much better the area had become. It wasn't terribly crowded on the Tuesday that we visited. There are small clean outdoor pools with different temps so guests moved around. It's not a kid place - like Mt Princeton. We won't wait so long to... More

In the last few years, if at all possible, I've started including hot springs visits on my to-do list when vacationing. I've been to some that are little more than an open air tub and others that are elaborate resorts. This tends to skirt the line in between the two quite nicely...there's an attached hotel, but is also open to... More

I've been visiting Cottonwood for several years now and enjoy the hot springs. On my last visit my family decided to rent out cabin number 4. I will never do that ever again. The unit was nearly $300 for the night but was in horrible condition. My teenager cut herself on a nail hanging out of the side of the... More

This place is nothing fancy, but very relaxing with nice natural hot spring pools. Tucked away in the mountains, this place has a nice rustic charm. As an adult without children, I love that they have strict rules about no kids after dark and no screaming/jumping/rowdiness!! If you are looking for a simple, relaxing experience, this place is great! If... More

Been here a few times, decent hot springs, most of the time a relaxing experience. Find that weekends seem to draw in more people with younger kids. If you're a hot springs lover like me, it surprises me how some people just don't seem to understand that most others at the hot springs are there to relax quietly, not listen... More

My first time in a Hot Spring! I stayed in for 3 hours and I can't believe how moist my skin has been since.

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!
