Northern California’s Naturally Heated Outdoor Pool Is All You Need This Winter
Northern California may not get as frigid as it does in say, the Midwest, during winter but that doesn’t mean we don’t get fairly cold days. Especially in higher elevation towns, the temperature can drop substantially during the winter months. Well, the resort featured here offers the perfect way of warming up during the cold season. Relax in one of their heated pools while taking in the beautiful surroundings. You’re definitely going to want to put this on your bucket list this winter.
Indian Springs is a historic Spanish-style resort which features a spa and two glorious naturally heated pools. It's located in beautiful Calistoga and is the perfect place to spend a brisk winter day.
The resort was originally established in 1861, making it California's oldest continuously operated pool. Indian Springs is first and foremost a luxurious overnight retreat. However, the two swimming pools are the highlight of the resort.
People have been coming here since the 19th century to soak in the pool's glorious waters. The thermal water is even thought to have restorative powers. Both pools are fed by the on-site geysers, ensuring a steamy soak.
The Main Pool is by far the most popular of the two pools. This Olympic-sized swimming pool was originally built in 1913. Both pools are kept at a temperature ranging from 82 to 102 degrees, depending on what season it is.
The other pool is the Adult Pool and offers a more quiet and intimate setting for adults only. Both pools are kept open until midnight. You absolutely have to experience a relaxing night-time soak while gazing up at the stars!
The pools are reserved for hotel guests only, but trust us. You're definitely going to want to book your next staycation here. They offer a variety of accommodations including rooms in the lodge, bungalows, cottages, and even houses. All options are stylishly decorated and boast some pretty incredible views of the surrounding Napa Valley.
You might just find that you wish you could move in permanently. This place is truly the embodiment of rest and relaxation. You'll feel a million miles away from the stresses of the world.
There are a plethora of activities to partake in at Indian Springs including shuffleboard, bocce ball, and strolling around the gorgeous premises. However, nothing beats sitting and relaxing by one of the fire pits after a hot soak.
