We visited in an RV. When we arrived and enquires about price, a very, very nice lady at the front said that it was $55 per night. Wow, that seemed expensive! We asked what that included and she said 50 amp hookup and soaking for that day and the next day and breakfast! Wow what a deal. Since we were... More

I must admit I was very hesitant when my boyfriend wanted to bring me here and stay in a yurt. However, upon arrival there is just something about Colorado that makes you want to unplug from the world, and this was the greatest place to do so. I LOVED every second of the trip. It's 3 hours or so from... More

We visited Joyful Journeys as a day use activity as we have in the past, and we love it. To soak in any of the three different- temp pools while gazing at the bluest of skies, watching birds fly about and taking in the native meadow foreground and the mountain vista background is bliss. The soaking pools and bath house... More

Stayed in a yurt while on a trip to see the Orient mine and celebrate a birthday/anniversary. The yurt was most comfortable and we loved the pampering. We had mentioned to the staff that it was our friends' anniversary and they surprised us all when they put fresh flowers and a note in their room (made us look good). Being... More

My husband and I stopped here on our way home from the sand dunes camping and absolutely loved it. There are three pools (small) with different temperatures. The views are amazing as you are relaxing. The staff was friendly and helpful and even let us walk through before purchasing our pass. I will return for sure!

My husband and I went here for our anniversary in late June, and we brought our two pups along with us. We stayed in a Yurt, which was clean and provided everything we needed for a comfortable stay.
