“Awesome Getaway”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2013

We had an incredible first visit to the Mount Princeton Hot Springs Resort. A group of 8 of us rented a 2 bedroom plus loft cabin, and it was the perfect weekend! The cabin was spacious and clean, and fit us all perfectly. The beds were incredibly comfortable, the views were great off both the front and back porches, and it was an easy walk to the hot springs. We were a bit disappointed when we came to find that the cabin did not have an oven - the description read "complete kitchen" which we figured included an oven, so we brought enchiladas to cook for the group. After speaking with the manager on duty and expressing our disappointment, the staff found a way to cook our enchiladas for us, which was incredibly nice of them! The hot springs were just lovely - so relaxing. Especially the Chalk Creek hot springs. We'll be back soon!

After a day trip up to St. Elmo, we stopped at Mount Princeton Hot Springs Resort for a late lunch. What a treat! The gracious host seated us on the deck overlooking the perfectly manicured lawn with a view of Mt. Princeton. It may seem like a small thing, but we loved the ice tea! The French Dip sandwich was especially good, and my companion enjoyed her salad. Our server did a good job (but shouldn't all servers at a mountain resort be able to identify the peaks out the restaurant window?). After lunch we walked around the resort. The gardens were lush and very well-kept. We peeked in the new cabins and thought they looked plain, but clean and nicely appointed. The adult spa was inviting. Our quick stop made me want to go back!

We loved the hot springs in the stream, and the pools were absolutely amazing! The people were extremely friendly and helpful. Michael made us the best paninis we have ever had in the juice bar. This will be one of our "Go To" places from this point forward and recommend it for everyone!

This is the first time I've been to a natural hot spring and let me just say... It is AWESOME!!! Whether you relax in the pools where the water is pumped right into it from the hot springs or climb into the river to enjoy it right from the source. The only downer is that they don't allow booze. Overall though, visiting a hot spring is very fascinating and a "must do" if you are out that way!!!

This place is gorgeous in so many ways. The rooms are nice and comfy, although cabins are way better. All the facilities are clean and is beautiful. It's very relaxing for adults and active for children, specially since they built the 100 ft long slide. The restaurant's food was very good too.

Hot Springs Resorts Are Like Children: each is different and all are lovable. Mt. Princeton fits.

The cabins along the river are great. Be lulled by the babbling stream.

Definitely try all of the pools and spas. One might really float your boat.

The restaurant is friendly and pleasant.

The lox and bagel breakfast beats NYC.

There is lots of great hiking nearby, but not from the resort itself.

We enjoyed the trail to Agnes Vaille Falls.

Room Tip: The accommodations are spread out. Look at a map of the property.
