Ritter is such a great escape that I don't feel comfortable telling strangers about it. I want to keep it a secret. However, it's such a far drive for most, that keeping it somewhat secret shouldn't be too hard. The surrounding area is so cool,...More

the attitude is laid-back. You check yourself in and when you leave you put your cash in the box. The clientele is not hippie but upper-middle-class adventuresome. Everyone wants to help you out. My room was very clean. The bathroom down the hall was very...More

Growing up in the 60's i spent lots of time in Ritter and surrounding ranches. Hunted, fished bucked hay went on cattle drives and helped out on the Heise Ranch. Swam in the stinky sulpher water pool (smelled like rotton eggs) and relaxed in the...More

I have mixed feelings about reviewing Ritter Hot Springs since I believe it is an undiscovered gem. Witness that there are only two reviews here about it, and I am not sure the other one is actually about the same place since Ritter has never...More

Maybe I shouldn't say that I wasn't too impressed as it was over 10 years ago that we went, but at the time the cafe was not up and running and I don't know if it now. But to give credit it's due their are...More
