This is my once a summer complete cut off from the hetic world we all live in experience.
First off your cell phone doesn't work here. Cars are not allowed except in the large parking area away from everything. You walk to places, you talk to people, music when you hear it is live and un amplified, your meals are basic but filling, the hot springs are stunning, the sun shines and all is right with the world.
Some of the best conversations I have even been involved in have happened here while sitting in the dark wrapped a pool of hot spring water with the stars as a backdrop.
A warning this is not a disney style resort. You bring you own bedding, towels ect. A bathhouse is where you shower. The meals are buffet style and you clean up after yourself. If you have a problem with nudity then the hot springs are going to offend you.
if you are looking for a staff to pamper you then Bonnieville hot springs in Washington is most likely where you need to be and not here.
