The Quapaw Bath House (Quapaw Bath & Spa) is open and full treatment for one is $155.00. It is on Bath House Row. You may "Google" it for more details. Enjoy.

Mattie, you aren't going to "dip" into the springs - you got that, right? The bath houses use spring water that is 147 degrees F when it hits the surface. That's much, much too hot. Maximum temp for a 20 min. tub bath at Buckstaff, which is well known, is 100 degrees. Even their website states if you exceed these temps or lengths of time you must have a letter from your doctor. 116 deg is considered to be a very hot bath; 120 degrees can burn in 10 minutes...140 degrees is the temperature of a commercial hot water heater that burns in 1-6 seconds. So now you see there is a reason no one just jumps right in! The up side is that your skin will feel so smooth and you will feel so relaxed, almost drained, after a bath and a massage that it will leave you wanting to go back on a regular basis.

Look at Buckstaff's website - you can get the water treatment without the massage for way less. I think that's what you're wanting. Me? I'll go for that massage every time - it is wonderful.

I never tried the baths there, but Garvin Gardens is definitely worth a visit. Great place to relax and zen out.

Oh, my wife and I love Hot Springs. We vacationed there for about 4 years in a row. We lived in Arkansas at the time.

Buckstaff bath ranges between $30 and $64. I've been there, and it's worth it. I think the Arlington Hotel also has their bath house open, and theirs is good too, but it's been five years since I've been there.

Both places are stuck in a time warp, and that's a good thing. Very relaxing, but if you travel back in time in your head, even for just a few minutes, it's even a better deal.
