A beautifully peaceful and serene getaway set in the stunning rocky mountains. We stayed in the Shepherds Wagon which was perfect in every way. Stylish, extremely clean and wonderfully quirky. Home made cookies on arrival made the place feel like a home from home. The hot pools are AMAZING, exceptionally relaxing and again the changing rooms and pools areas were...

Cabins are very rustic, but cute. The hot springs are the calling card...and are nice. There are 3 different temperatures from which to choose. We just stayed a night to enjoy the pools and took a hike the next day. Beautiful location. Farm type atmosphere. No dining on premises so if you don't want to cook in your cabin you...

We stayed in a cabin that was off site from the ranch about 5 miles (Gamekeepers Lodge). The lodge was amazing and well appointed. We had a girls weekend here and enjoyed day trips, and evenings in the hot tub or at the springs. The hot springs themselves were very nice. The pools were very clean, and not too busy....

We visited in winter season but the weather was more springlike. The location is a bit undiscovered and remote, which was a positive for much needed getaway. The cabins were well maintained and cozy. With a full kitchenette and heated by a gas wood stove, you get the camp feel, without the smoke. If you want to grill, they are...

Family run operation with rustic cabins, many with wood-burning stoves. The thermal pools are excellent and provide great relaxation before or after a day of outdoor activities. We have only been in winter, but our cabin was quiet, quiet, quiet. Very nice.

We stayed here for a night for our anniversary last year and it was lovely. Relaxing setting and beautiful property. The hot springs were so relaxing and the cabin was cozy, clean, and comfortable. Thanks for the great getaway! We'll be back in the future.

First off, this isn't posh. There are no duvets or floor length terry robes. What it is is a perfect place to rent a cabin or a shepherd's wagon and enjoy the uncrowded hot springs pools, any time, day or night, and mellow out. The cabin came with delicious cookies and a choice of hot beverages in the charmingly decorated...

Me and my husband stayed in Cabin #3 for two nights and we really loved it. The hot springs are really nice and relaxing especially after 5:00 PM when only the lodging guests can use them. The view of the Mountains from the Springs and the Cabin is also very beautiful. The best part is there is no wifi in...

Stayed here at the ranch in January. The cabins were clean, neat and cozy. It was a great getaway for my boyfriend and I. The hot springs are open to the public but closed after 5, but open for Registered guests only, which was nice. The temps in all 3 pools were perfect for the cold evenings. The bed was...
