Our stay at Living Waters was too short! The mineral pools are amazing and leave your skin baby soft. After a 4 day car trip, the massage was highly anticipated and exceeded my expectations, leaving me relaxed for days after. We can't wait to return and will definitely make sure we have time for a longer stay.

Just an incredible place. Quiet, comfortable, and relaxing. Met some great folks this time and Jeff and Judy are the finest of hosts. They make you feel like part of the family from the minute you arrive. Will return soon.

We arrived on a Sunday afternoon (for a 5 nights stay) to a warm and friendly welcome from Jeff, the owner. Our accommodation (room #2) was clean, comfortable and well appointed. The kitchen was more than adequate for our 5 night stay and we were able to prepare an evening meal very easily. All the rooms are poolside with wonderful... More

I have stayed here a bunch of times with my now wife. Its very relaxing. We love sitting with the other quests having drinks and cheese in the evening, or a late night swim, or just enjoying the quietness of the place.
