Orvis is a wonderful, beautiful place to relax, to sit and soak. Many people have been coming here for several years and were always treated with respect. However, a male employee named Bruce needs some training in customer service because he yelled at customers (see previous review). He told them to do something "because he said so," not "because these... More

First hot springs for me. Started with a suit but changed it up as it is really much more relaxing without. People are very friendly and chill. Don't know why some people are creeped out by naked people. Love it, don't change a thing.

The staff here is not particularly welcoming, but we did not come here for that. The changing room was not particularly clean, but we are always careful to use flipflops to avoid contact with floors in public places like this. The pools range from very hot (the Lobster Pot) to a nice warm in the largest pool. The surfaces are... More

My husband and I were excited for our first hot spring experience , but it was such a let down when the person at the front counter was very rude, short, no explanation on where to go , where / what the different pools were, and even inpatient with...

The property is beautiful with 6 hot spring pools (one inside that's lukewarm but it's very popular with screaming kids - clothing is required in this pool). The big main pool outside is the most popular as the temp is around 105-107 deg. The nudity is obscene here and it's enough to not make me want to come back. Men... More

Call me prudish, but I was originally weary of visiting a “clothing optional” hot springs. However, after a long morning spent hiking Sneffels, my friends easily convinced me to take a dip at Orvis Hot Springs. In short, my experience was extremely comfortable and relaxing. Yes, there are naked soakers and sun bathers, but if you can get over that... More

Finding Orvis Hot Springs was not that easy, there´s no big advertising, just a little marker along roadside. As well the area / building is quite inconspicuous. The girl at the reception was giving a short tour, showing the area ... that´s some outdoor pools in different sizes and with different temperatures as well as an indoor pool plus some... More
