We have been on a quest to visit every hot springs in Wyoming and Montana, and this brought us across the hi-line after visiting Glacier Park with our three kids. It only had one sign, so glad we didn't miss it. We weren't even sure it was open as things are a bit under construction in places. Looking at the... More

The new improved Sleeping Buffalo is world's apart from the last incarnation. The new owners did an excellent job of preserving the historic architecture while bringing the guest amenities up to par with the finest resorts. Not always as busy as would be expected, don't be surprised to find an empty parking lot and very private experience. Although weekends can... More

It is wonderful to see the Hot springs returning to it former glory. Spent a wonderful rainy afternoon relaxing at the spa. It is beautifully clean, and the water temp is perfect. Staff friendly and helpful. Will go back next time I am Montana.

This was our go to destination as a family when I was growing up so it was a dream to return 50 years later with original family members plus add-ons. This place is the same yet different. Kudos to the owners for keeping the stonework of the buildings intact, yet everything else is updated to today's standard. The pools are... More
