The Cottonwood Hot Springs hotel has a long history of enabling people to relax and to be healed of various ailments. It was started back in 1878 as a hotel, and the healing waters of the hot springs had been used by the Indians for many years previous. Guests can come to the Buena Vista, CO area, and experience for themselves the healing and relaxing waters of this resort.
The unique feature about the resort is that all of the water in the pools is gravity-fed. The water is natural and does not have anything artificial added to them.
The hotel itself is very rustic looking. When guests arrive, they are sure to think about the older days of the west, because it is an older western building. Being that it is located on land that belongs to the national park system, they are not allowed to renovate or modernize their appearance.
Guests are enabled to relax even more in this hotel because it really is an isolated place to ensure the utmost relaxation experience. There are no TV's, no phones, and no air conditioning, and it is the choice of the management to have it this way.
The hotel has a number of hotel rooms, and also small cottages for their guests. Rooms come in different sizes and with different amenities. Only larger rooms have a microwave and a refrigerator, and only the cabins have private soaking pools. A two-night minimum is required and no alcohol of any kind is allowed. Pets are not allowed in any of the rooms, but are permitted in the cabins. A coed dorm and a campground are also available, but there are no RV hookups.
Some modern conveniences can be found in the Main Lodge, such as Wi-Fi, a pay phone, a TV-VCR/DVD, as well as a library. Guests can have coffee and a light breakfast in the morning.
There are five separate stone pools filled with natural spring hot water. There is also a Jacuzzi that is private, and each one of the cabins has their own stone soaking pools. The water is crystal clear and ranges from 94 to 110 degrees.
The Spa services at the resort offer many different relaxing possibilities. Different therapists are available and each has their own specialty. Some of the treatments include therapeutic massage, hot stone massage, pre-natal, Swedish massage, salt scrubs, mud facials, and so much more. Treatments are made by advance appointment. Special packages are available.
