A light dusting of snow came down while I sat in the "lobster pot", the hottest of the naturally-fed pools. What a treat! A mellow crowd and a friendly staff made this a magical, and relaxing, time. Ridgway has a lot to offer nearby, but I decided to just sit and soak! I'll definitely be back soon.

Lived here in Ridgway 7 years. Finally took time to go soak at Orvis. What a beautiful , relaxing place.Staff was outstanding. Enjoyed every moment relaxing in warm water pools under the beautiful stars. Definitely will be coming back frequently.

I have visited Orvis several times over a 30 year period (I'm not a local), and am amazed and delighted by the improvements every time. This is truly one of the best (commercial) Hot Springs in the United States! The buildings and (interior) grounds are delightful, and the landscaping within the fencing is lovely; providing visitors with areas of privacy... More

I wish I was still there! Lovely place. The staff there are very friendly, and two resident cats are excellent companions for those needing a "cat fix" on their vacation. There are several pools to choose from including a very hot one (the "lobster pot"), a general soaking pool that is also the largest and includes a cold drip and... More

If you look up relaxation in the dictionary, you will find a picture of Orvis Hot Springs. We got the last of the six available rooms by reservation two weeks ahead of time, we only got one night due to our time restrictions and their availability. They claim to have free wifi, and they do in the lobby, but the... More

The only thing I did not like is the smokers pool. Otherwise it made me feel better. I had tried a energy shot that made me sick and the pools seemed to pull it out of me! Mello staff and resident cats add to the charm.

You can't beat the location, amazing views and activities in the area. Hot springs are true laid back Colorado style. If your shy of the 'suits optional' indoor pool is more modest, or soak in the evening with well lit pathways to all of the pools and additional modesty under some of the most speculative stargazing I have yet to...

I don't believe that I could say enough good things about this place. This was the final stop on our road trip through Colorado's hot springs, and what a place it was. It is very easy to find right off the main road between Ridgway and Ouray, but when your on this property you could be miles away from anywhere.... More

If you like hot springs this place is great! The rooms are clean, comfortable and nicely decorated. The prices are reasonable and include your soaking fee. The hot springs and water are just great. The grounds are well maintained and the staff is superb. We've stayed twice and hope to stay again, but it is hard to get a room... More

I have been at Orvis twice, once each Summer in 2012 AND 2013. I camped in a tent on the property. Although I enjoyed all of the facilities, the highlight both times was getting up before sunrise and sitting in the hot springs watching the rising sun light up the 14,000+ peaks that seem near enough to touch.
