Spent a night in one of their wagons for our anniversary! Our wagon was right next to the hot springs and close to all the other features here. Could not describe how great it was with words; hopefully the pics do all the talking! A must!

There were some things I loved about Avalanche Ranch and somethings that left wanting. The staff was overall friendly and I loved the doggy staff we met! My massage therapist Annika I believe but that could be the wrong name (I'm sorry) we had a couples 12:00 on 3/11 was nothing short of amazing. She checked in with me about...

What a wonderful spot! We came as day visitors to enjoy the hot springs and scenery. The staff was so accommodating and friendly. Before our soak, we enjoyed a scenic mile walk around the grounds which were absolutely lovely. They are careful not to crowd the place, so you do need reservations even as a day visitor. The pool area...

My husband and I had the worst experience of hot springs ever. We have been to about a dozen different hot springs, and Avalanche Ranch was our worst. The Springs was nothing special. What disappointed us was not the springs itself but about the staff and the way the owner handled our complaint. We arrived at Avalanche Ranch for our...

Avalanche Ranch is a gem! My family and I visited over the Christmas Holiday while it was a winter wonderland. We thoroughly enjoyed the hot springs and the mountain vista back drop. We spent our days snow shoeing, skiing, sledding, ice skating and reading.(No cell service or wifi in each cabin- fine with us) We spent our evenings soaking, playing...

Stayed for a night in September. Beautiful place, amazing view especially from the hotsprings. Staff are very helpful and friendly. The accommodation itself is comfortable, clean and nice. I wish to stay longer, next time I will! I heard this place is booked up very quickly, even when I stayed there it was low season and midweek, it's full! Thank...

We stayed 2 nights in the Sun Flower cabin with our children last week. I thought the cabin was very cute and the owners obviously put a lot of thought into making each cabin cozy and unique. We arrived after check in hours to find the heat on in our cabin and fresh baked cookies on the table. The landscape...

My wife and I visited Avalanche Ranch this past weekend to go to some hot springs in the Rockies. The weather was absolutely amazing (unseasonably warm) which was refreshing when getting out of the springs. There are 4 separate pools all fed from natural hot springs, so there is plenty of room and you don't feel over crowded. The view...

Visited during an unexpected rain/snow during our late September visit; luckily we were able to get in (MAKE RESERVATIONS!). The springs are great - three separate pools that each have different temperatures - and in fact, the temperature dropped 15 degrees while we were there, so they dialed up the heat in one of them, and we felt it almost...

Seven women went on a 2-day retreat this fall. I think this is perfect for groups, adults and possibly children. I'm not sure that little kids would want to spend much time in the hot springs. The ranch was not as ritzy as Aspen spas but not as expensive either. The cabins reminded me of dude ranch/fishing cabins were brought...
