Closed December 1–December 28

Valley View Closed until Dec 28th Valley View Closed until Dec 28th Doug Bates

Every December the hot springs closes for four weeks. Some people think we get to take it easy during this time. The truth is that we are quite busy. We have projects that can only be done while we are closed. Last year we installed geothermal heat in Oak House, installed new windows in Oak House, replaced the heating elements in the heater that provides heated water to the hot pools, as well as thorough cleaning of all the buildings. There are times when we monitor the phones and keep in touch with people trying to make reservations. There are times that we do not answer the phones.

We re-open on December 29 and are open for New Year's Eve. These four weeks are the only time that the hot springs is closed. A staff member is present for oversight. The grounds, pools, and wildlife enjoy the peace and quiet and the regeneration that accompanies the emptiness and reduction in human impact. Thank you for your understanding.
