Situated on the western shore of Kootenay Lake and fifteen minutes north of the ferry terminal at Balfour, the Ainsworth Hot Springs Resort offers clean, modern, and updated rooms, with unlimited visits to the attached hot springs for hotel guests. The hot springs are quite amazing with an outdoor pool and connecting hot spring caves.

The pool was wonderful at 98 degrees. From there you can go inside the caves where the water temp. is 105. You can really sweat in...

We spent just 1 night here last summer but came away with loads of special memories! Not only are the hot springs and caves rejuvenating, but the resort itself is lovely. We stayed on the adult only floor, in 1 of 2 gorgeous suites! Our room had a living room, fireplace, incredible view of the lake, soaker tub and heated...

Really enjoyed the pools - great attraction. The caves are a must see. The resort is a bit outdated but they are renovating. We found the staff to be really friendly and courteous. The rooms are good, beds comfy, with many offering nice views of the water. There are other hotels in the area but they seemed very rough. Some...

We traveled to Ainsworth over the Easter long weekend and enjoyed our stay. The staff were excellent and the food in the restaurant was wonderful. We all loved the caves and pool. We traveled with our 3 kids and my only complaint was that the family suite was small. It would be nice if they had a suite with 1...

Ainsworth hasn't changed too much in the past few years. With towel rentals, admission and water your costs add up quickly. It was fairly busy when we were there. Change room cleaning was very time consuming and inconvenient. I had to wait 20 minutes to get in to change into my suit. The front office section is very small and...
