Wilbur Hot Springs is an off grid/solar powered, destination resort with naturally occurring hot mineral springs located in the heart of an 1800 acre Nature Preserve. When you pass through the gate, you are entering a sanctuary-a refuge from the fast pace and noise of the modern world. This land and its healing waters offer a unique opportunity to slow down, quiet the mind, and listen deeply. The bathing area features the Fluminarium: an open-air onsen with three long flumes of volcanic mineral water with temperatures ranging from 98-110 degrees Fahrenheit, a sauna and a swimming pool. There is little to distract you from the basic tasks of soaking, resting, preparing your meals, and exploring nature. Here, you can let go, sink into yourself, and reconnect with what matters most.

Just don't. Overpriced accommodations ($300+ per night) for a bed in 1/2 of a cabin, 1/2 bath with NO hot water, no towels - we went in the middle of summer and the heat was unbearable. NO fans. NO shade. The vibe is difficult to pick up on; many visitors are friendly - others, much too friendly (like, leave me alone I wanted to chill out, be quiet or visit with my partner, not the chatty single 60 year old woman, solo and naked who constantly appeared when we went in the pool). I found the waters to be smelly, my anxiety levels heightened while there (despite the digital detox I was looking forward to) and it was all around a bad memory I would soon like to forget. Also, WHY are there SHARPS (needle disposal) containers in the rooms? Perhaps because many people who are sick go for the 'healing waters' - I'm thinking drug use in the rooms. Eeks! Cooking is difficult - though the kitchen (shared by all) is a nice one, I felt like I was staying in a hostel. Not really feeling this 'magical' place. If you've got money to burn, go - otherwise, think about it carefully.

California is one of the best places in the world to experience the magic of hot springs, from the champagne water at Vichy to the mud-baths in Calistoga. But Wilbur - now this is something special. They have green "connate water" in three long flumes from hot to hottest, green to greenest. They smell like the psychological medicine they are. You will be totally clear and thought-free after a day at Wilbur. Dr. Miller has anecdotally cured cocaine addicts with this place. What need we say about what it can do for your (or my) neurosis? Beautiful grounds, lots of great hiking for between pool dips - and the most urbane, polite and purification-oriented clientele you can imagine. Do not be put-off by the "clothing optional." I've never been to a more polite, respectful place (except for maybe a Tibetan or Nepalese monastery). Go! Awaken! Have Big Fun! And support Dr. Miller's program of releasing us from our silly civilization-induced suffering ! AND, who cares whether your room is like a Hyatt ?? I sure don't - I go there to expand my awareness, not cater to any silly luxury preferences. And they are as clean as your mind will be when you leave. Go!

I've been to about 80 hot springs since 2015 and have been to many in California. Wilbur was on my list of places I wanted to go in California. It is a beautiful drive there when the hills are green. The facility and property were nice, but the water was unlike any hot springs water I have ever experienced. It had almost a petroleum and ammonia combination scent to me. My friend's skin broke out afterward and mine sloughed a lot. I've had sloughing from other hot springs with high silica content, but this was a bit different. The smell of the water detracted from the experience. I found Orr Hot Springs to have better water. I can handle stinky, sulphury hot springs water. Wilbur was just very unique. I'm curious what made this water so different than the other hot springs and if it had anything to do with industrial influences.

Wilbur is one of my favorite places to get some time to myself to relax and decompress. The flumes melt all my stresses away, and I also love the pool to cool off a bit. I haven't been brave enough to do the cold plunge, but it's on my bucket list! I also love exploring the property and seeing the wild ponies. There are some bikes around for the guests to use if they want, but I personally like taking walks. I came during a guest chef weekend, and the food was incredible! It's such a special place, and I recommend everyone to get up there!

I've been to Wilbur many times and love their waters. Accommodations aren't great, but I've had good experiences renting rooms inside the main building. I called to make a reservation and the lady answering the phone told me "Just a minute"...to which when she came back on the line, I asked if she could hear me alright? She said, "Yes". As I was talking to her, she told me, "wait, just a minute". I waited. She came back on the line and we continued to talk - I had some questions if there had been any changes since my last visit - and she kept asking me in sort a demanding way, what day do you want to make a reservation for?". I told her Wednesday at least three times. She then told me, "just a minute" again and was off the line for quite some time and I could hear her talking to someone else so I just hung up.
