I love this place. Great place to stay if you're visiting the Great Sand Dunes about 30 minutes away. This is rarely too crowded, the hot pools are amazing with different temperatures and the view from the pools is a valley rimmed with 14ers. The only reason I gave this 4 stars is that it's not fancy - it has... More

I used to like this place a lot. It was a quiet and rustic place for people who need some time to unwind. Not anymore. I think they decided to open up car and tent camping sites besides Yurts and Lodges... now, it is getting close to a zoo. They also jacked up the price quite a bit. It is... More

If what you need is Hot water, don't care about how clean the locker room is, and or whether or not there are creatures/bugs in the water, than this place is fine. I just needed a hot soak after a long drive. was not impressed, but liked the very hot pool

It's hard to beat the beauty of this spa experience. In a recent three-day visit, my husband and I enjoyed the mountains in the distance, Colorado blue skies, the crescent moon in the night sky, and falling snow flakes as we soaked by ourselves at 8am in the 103 degree pool our last day.
