I can't say enough good things about this place. Great management, incredibly low prices, crystal water, often no sulfur at all depending on time of year ... This place is less formal than Harbin, also slightly less hippie-ish at the same time, in that there are plenty of people in swimsuits, it's incredibly clean, and there are families here, something...

Here at sierra hot springs we chose to camp in our campervan, loved these hot springs, it was quiet at the time and had a selection of pools more private to public to choose from, the living room and communal areas were super cosy, home style kitchen amenities were also complete.

this place is amazing. it's quiet and peaceful. the landscape is beautiful. we got there at the magic hour, and the mountains and sky were gorgeous. clothing is optional and honestly, i was the only one in the meditation pool in a swimsuit but i didn't feel uncomfortable. no one spoke and the silence was both appreciated and calming. the...

Our room was small and looked well used, but the bed was comfortable and the views idyllic. Philosophy cafe had delicious food when it was open and we cooked meals on the community kitchen when it wasn't. It was clean and everyone was very friendly. I can't say enough good things about the meditation pool. We were there during a... More

The hot springs were super relaxing. The staff were nice and helpful as well. The facilities were clean. The area is nude friendly, but it is ok if you wear your suit. The changing room is co-ed and open, so if you are on the shy side be prepared for that. About 30% of the people wore swim suits and... More

We arrived to this beautiful, woodsy hot spring and spent the day soaking and swimming after having spent the 3 days before riding bikes around Lake Tahoe. It was wonderful! We plan to return and stay at the lodge next time just didn't have time this trip to stay overnight.

We stayed at the lodge, and initially were a little worried by the tired look of the lodge. However it does somehow add to the rusticness of the place. The main thing to note is nudity is optional. Being body conscious I was a wee bit worried but the great thing is that it's fine and felt very comfortable to... More

If you read some of the previous reviews you will undoubtedly have noticed that this is by no means a plush resort. It is perfect to get away, think, enjoy solitude or strike up interesting conversations. This review is really about three different things, but all are listed as one address and destination. 1. The hot springs: natural hot water... More

" Los Dos Hermanos" a mexican resturant in sierraville; my partner and myself have vomited and became quite ill due to the miscarried food. During our stay, he healed ourselves at the springs and when we shared our story with other guests, everyone sayed that they too have heard the " food poisening" reputation of the resturant.
