Though it has grown considerably from earlier years, the views from the private tubs are still sublime. We enjoyed watching the trout hanging near the runoff from our tub . . .

After driving for hours we tried our the hot springs. It was nice to rest our muscles while looking out at the river. The spa is a "quiet" zone, which was nice.

Love all the different pools to choose from. Temp always nice and warm. Atmosphere is a little busy. But, the private tubs send you zen and healing

Call them. I'm pretty sure they are, but you probably need to make an appointment if you want a private soak because they have a lot of rooms filled for the holiday.
