Trying to get away from the bustle of the city, my boyfriend and I went up to the hotsprings for a nice relaxing weekend. Our notice said that check-in was at 4:00, we arrived at 5:30 and our cabin was not ready. After a long dinner in town, we tried again and they were just then finishing up, we had... More

We stayed for two nights and although the cabin was definitely overpriced for what you get, we had a nice time. On check out day we got a later start to head back to Denver then we had planned...

Made reservation months ahead of time for Cottage #2 that has 2 bedrooms, living room, kitchen. Got there and we were given Cottage #3 that has only 1 bedroom. Not big enough for us.

I really like Cottonwood Hot Springs. It is really nice to soak & be able to go directly to your room very close nearby. The rooms have fans & are very well kept. It is quiet & massages etc. are available at an extra charge. NO WI FI .. which is unusual but fine if you know in advance.

We often drive up to Cottonwood Lake in late September to see the Fall colors, and we always pass this little resort on the way. In the past, we had our own hot tub at home, so we never visited. But now that we no longer have that hot tub, this little resort became very attractive. Unlike other hot springs... More

Cottonwood is one of our favorite hot springs and after the Inn underwent a major remodeling job, my husband and I promised to treat ourselves to an overnight stay there. There was no better excuse than my birthday, so we finally made good on our promise this past weekend. Imagine our disappointment when we discovered that our overall experience was... More

We stopped here on our way to Denver and we enjoyed ourselves here. We started in the hot springs and found them very relaxing. However the shower area could use an update. We also had a one hour massage. I had Brittney working on me and she was very pleasant and did a great job.

Donna gave me all the care and attention you'd expect from a top rate masseuse - she focused on me and my specific needs and was generous with her skills and time. My husband was very pleased with his massage with another very knowledgeable and highly skilled massage therapist. Definitely would rate them 5+. The mineral pools were inviting and... More

For 20$ you can soak in the springs. After dark it is adults only. Many different temp pools and a great view of the mountains and the stars. Just don't stay in the lodges, they really aren't worth it if you just want to soak in a hot spring.
