Visited Elkhorn Hot Springs and restaurant for the first time recently. The pools were clean, (old but kept up), variety of temps depending on the pool. The restaurant was exceptional with a chef that was top notch! The salmon special on Saturday evening was amazingly delicious! They get their potatoes from Hamer, Idaho and hand cut the fries, yummmm. The... More

We stayed in the "Modern" Cabin, which meant it had indoor plumbing! It was really fun! They are small and rustic, but near Crystal Park and other great outdoor fun! We really enjoyed the hot springs and the breakfast buffet the next morning! Perfect for our family!

Just stayed for a soak but found the water was to hot to stay longer than 20 minutes. Its a beautiful setting, remote, quiet when the kids aren't screaming and jumping in the pool. Only half the pool was really used as the deep end had black scum on the bottom and no one wanted to use it.

We stopped in to see what Elkhorn Hot Springs was on our way through. The place is terribly run down, there is no indoor plumbing or water in all but one of the cabins, the furniture in them was worn and dirty. The outhouses looked really iffy, like they had not been maintained in many years. The young woman behind... More

Elkhorn hot springs is located on a gorgeous piece of land. The views are stunning and it was a beautiful place to sit and relax. We started at the restaurant. It's a long cabin style place with a huge front porch with a couple outdoor tables and a big bench porch swing. We chose to sit outside and enjoy the... More

Very relaxing after a day digging crystals. I hear it is best in the winter time after a day skiing at Maverick Mountain - hoping to make it back to experience that for myself!

We search out and love to find out-of-the-way places and don't expect or care that much about luxurious accommodations, but this place is nearly held together by bailing wire and scotch tape. What potential it has. The 2 inside toilets aren't replenished or even looked at as both of them were out of paper towels and toilet paper for 2... More

We have been here many times over the years. Sometimes it is clean, sometimes not so good. Depends on who the current owners are. Very rustic and a decent restaurant. Close to Crystal Park which is amazing and the ghost town of Coolidge which is very nice. Lots of trails and off the beaten path between the East and West... More

I met friends here for the weekend and loved it. No, it's not fancy- those folks need to go the Big Sky-but really nice people, nice enough cabin and killer homemade apple pie! We were there right after they opened back up for the season, so the hot springs were really clean. Food was basic and tasty. The one thing... More
