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

So at the end of a short, dusty road lies Sierra Hot Springs. I would be extending myself to state it is a Resort and Retreat Center. Try Breitenbush, up in Oregon , or another "Resort", to classify it as such. At times, the web pages of such resorts are misleading. Lots of gloss and glam.. yet, upon arrival.. well..... More
