We visited in winter season but the weather was more springlike. The location is a bit undiscovered and remote, which was a positive for much needed getaway. The cabins were well maintained and cozy. With a full kitchenette and heated by a gas wood stove, you get the camp feel, without the smoke. If you want to grill, they are... More

Family run operation with rustic cabins, many with wood-burning stoves. The thermal pools are excellent and provide great relaxation before or after a day of outdoor activities. We have only been in winter, but our cabin was quiet, quiet, quiet. Very nice.

We stayed here for a night for our anniversary last year and it was lovely. Relaxing setting and beautiful property. The hot springs were so relaxing and the cabin was cozy, clean, and comfortable. Thanks for the great getaway! We'll be back in the future.

First off, this isn't posh. There are no duvets or floor length terry robes. What it is is a perfect place to rent a cabin or a shepherd's wagon and enjoy the uncrowded hot springs pools, any time, day or night, and mellow out. The cabin came with delicious cookies and a choice of hot beverages in the charmingly decorated... More

Me and my husband stayed in Cabin #3 for two nights and we really loved it. The hot springs are really nice and relaxing especially after 5:00 PM when only the lodging guests can use them. The view of the Mountains from the Springs and the Cabin is also very beautiful. The best part is there is no wifi in... More

Stayed here at the ranch in January. The cabins were clean, neat and cozy. It was a great getaway for my boyfriend and I. The hot springs are open to the public but closed after 5, but open for Registered guests only, which was nice. The temps in all 3 pools were perfect for the cold evenings. The bed was... More

This hot springs and ranch are a beautiful respite from a busy world. The property is lovely and the hot springs were so nice and relaxing after a long drive through the mountains. Each quaint little cabin is rustic and unique. My children loved feeding the sheep that live on the property. While it was nice to stay in our... More

We stayed three nights, Dec 31 - Jan 3 and throughly enjoyed the remoteness, quiet, and splendor of winter in the rockies. The hot spring was easy walking from the Cabin (we stayed in #6). And after 15 to 20 minutes, you were plenty warm enough for the walk back with just a robe on (brought our own). Despite the... More

We stayed during the week leading up to Christmas (Cabin #11, Eagle Nest) and found it to be an extremely relaxing vacation, which is exactly what we were going for. A couple specific thoughts below: - In the winter, the hill leading up to the cabins/facility might be a little steep for FWD cars without chains to make easily. Plan... More
