Valley View Hot Springs reopened on August 3, 2020 after being closed for four months due to the pandemic.  We are happy to report that our “Great Experiment” has gone very well with restricted capacity, covid guidelines and member cooperation.  We have been cautious, followed guidelines and recommendations from the state and county health officials, and it’s working!  We plan to continue at a reduced capacity, closures of communal spaces like the sauna, welcome center and dormitory through the spring and will update when we can safely make adjustments.

Membership is required to make an advanced reservation.  Non-members can reserve 24 hours in advance. Starting March 1, 2021 we will be taking reservations for two months out.  Members at the Friendship level will have a one month reservation benefit and members at the Supporter or higher levels will have a two month benefit.  Make reservations for your family only please, no groups or gatherings of friends from separate households at this time.

Please read our Covid Guidelines before calling and making a reservation.  Many things have changed since the pandemic, so be proactive and prepared before you visit!  Not all of our guidelines are consistent with our community values which have evolved over the years.  We all look forward to returning to a more normal life. In the meantime, your cooperation is crucial to our being open and we appreciate your support.  See the new COVID Guidelines below.
