Treat yourself to an unforgettable getaway at the historic Mount Princeton Hot Springs Resort in Nathrop, Colorado, between the charming towns of Buena Vista and Salida. Soak your bones in the very same natural hot springs along Chalk Creek that native tribes did over 100 years ago, while also enjoying the amenities of a modern day resort, including restaurants, bars, a spa, fitness classes, and a wide range of holistic pools. This hot springs resort near Denver is a grand place to take your family or your sweetheart for a refreshing escape away from your worries and woes.
Mount Princeton Hot Springs Resort's long history began in 1860, when a hotel, way station, and freight depot were built to serve freighters and miners passing through the area, and it has since survived many owners, purposes, and expansions.
In 2004, the resort's current owners purchased the property and embarked on a massive renovation that led to the stunning grounds and accommodations you are privy to today.
They offer a whole host of soaking and swimming options, including the Cascading Hot Springs Pools where you and your love can relax in the warmth of the healing waters amidst the crisp, clean mountain air...
...or beneath the twinkling night stars. (Note: These pools and many others are for ages 16 and up only.)
At the Historic Bath House established in 1867, you'll find a soaking pool, exercise pool, showers, lockers, and the natural creekside hot springs where you can create your own personal healing experience.
The creekside pools are fed by natural geothermal hot springs, swirling and bubbling with the rejuvenating waters of Chalk Creek - the very same pools that the natives washed their weary souls in over a century ago.
If peace and quiet is what you crave, the Relaxation Pool will grant you all the serenity you need. The area offers lounge chairs, a sparsely populated pool maintained at 99 degrees Fahrenheit (reserved for adults only), and a tranquil space to breathe in the fresh alpine air and surrounding views.
The resort provides a variety of cozy accommodations, including the Lodge, Cliffside, and Hillside, seen here.
They also offer cabins which are uniquely modern and rustic and contain additional amenities like stovetops and fireplaces.
Snuggle up by the burning flames or enjoy views of the surrounding Chalk Creek from your private deck or patio, with a glass of wine or cup of tea in hand.
No matter which lodging you choose, you can expect nothing short of luxury.
Dine on lovingly prepared local cuisine at the Lodge's Princeton Club, where dishes are created using fresh, locally sourced and organic ingredients whenever possible. The Princeton Club offers breakfast, lunch, small plates, and dinner.
In addition to the full-service spa, the resort provides guests with yoga and fitness classes, a fitness center, juice bar, Exercise Pool, and a whole host of nearby outdoor activities which vary depending on the season.
And if you'd like to venture beyond the grounds, the endearing town of Buena Vista is located just 12.4 miles down the road and has loads of restaurants, bars, shops, and attractions.
