What Do the
Ratings Mean?



Antero Hot Springs

This newly renovated, all-season, hot springs resort is the epitome of "Colorado" and "Hot Springs," from the wonderful close-in mountain views to its two authentic log cabins. Construction of two new hot springs pools at the door of these cabins is scheduled for completion in mid-September 2004. The hot springs themselves are high temperature (134 F) and are said to be "mineral rich" and have no sulfur smell. Plenty of photos to show the environs of each cabin and their cheery-looking interiors. Some historical information is promised soon.

Cottonwood Hot Springs & Spa

One of the nicer and funkier hot springs in Colorado, which features a number of accommodation alternatives, including a tipi. Clothing is optional after dark from September to May. The resort's library provides a range of personal growth and recovery literature, as well as the usual escapist fiction titles.  From the owner: "In keeping with the innate harmony of this land at this ancient, sacred site, we come together out of a shared vision, for the purpose of creating a holistic and spiritual center and a sustainable community. A haven for healing, growth, rejuvenation and restoration of the body/mind/spirit. Supportive of individual, group as well as planetary rejuvenation and restoration."  The site is well illustrated and provides a complete description of services.

Strawberry Park Hot Springs

What used to be a relatively undeveloped hot spring backwater with virtually no amenities is now a well-developed, but still funky resort. The web site includes a huge slide show, detailed descriptions of lodging alternatives (from camping to cabins), and useful information on location, access, admission, pool rules, and "what to bring."  Massage and Watsu are available on site.  An online reservation form is provided.

Mt. Princeton Hot Springs

While it's a fairly extensive resort, Mt. Princeton Hot Springs still qualifies as "out of the way" because of its location deep in a valley at the base of the Collegiate Peaks, 13 miles south of Buena Vista, Colorado (pronounced more like Boona Vista to those in the know.) The pics on this site are great, and the layout has been recently upgraded.

Valley View Hot Springs

High in the Sangre de Cristos, overlooking the San Juan Valley, this hot spring provides a "clothing optional," members club experience. The Web site is associated with the Orient Land Trust that is operating the hot springs. The OLT is "a nonprofit land trust dedicated to the preservation of natural resources, wildlife habitat, open space, and historic and geologic features of the northern San Luis Valley for the enjoyment of current and future generations."

The first time visitors page provides many photos of the facilities and all the information you'll need (and more) to decide whether you want to "take the plunge."
