Hot Tub pleasure…simple luxury…Colorado Box Canyon Hot Springs

Sometimes luxury is a stolen couple of days in a stunning setting, in this case in the comfort of (non-sulfur smelling) naturally fed hot tubs (4)  cradled in the Rocky Mountains about 300 miles southwest of Denver.

The Box Canyon Lodge and Hot Springs in  Ouray, Colorado is a stunning setting, an eco-conscious lodge, featuring hot tubs fed by natural hot springs.

From the Lodges web-site: We use our geothermal water for our guests to soak.  We never heat the water as it comes out of the ground at about 140 degrees Farenheit.  We also use the geothermal water to heat guest rooms and to heat the city water used for bathing in our guest rooms.  We also use our geothermal hot springs to heat the water used in the laundry too.

In 2009, we completed a substantial upgrade to our buildings so that the preponderance of our water is heated with our geothermal resources and most heat in our buildings is derived from our geothermal springs.  Since 2007, the Box Canyon Lodge & Hot Springs has reduced natural gas consumption by 70%. 

The four redwood tubs offer a spectacular 360-degree view of the surrounding mountains. Guests of the hotel enjoy soaking in the evenings under a blanket of stars or during the daytime when the breathtaking scenery of the San Juan Mountains and of Ouray shines.

The Box Canyon Lodge & Hot Springs has earned a four key rating from Green Key, a well known eco-rating program.

Entrance to the Box Cañon Falls is an easy 2 block walk from the lodge.  Inside the park the roaring falls crash to the river bed 285 feet below.  There is also a short hike of 1/2 mile or so to the suspension bridge that crosses the gorge.  Once on the bridge, feel free to open the gate, walk through the tunnel and come down that trail back to the lodge.  It makes for a short yet fun hike and lasts about 1.5 hours roundtrip.  This suggestion applies to walkers as you end up back at the lodge and not at the parking area.

ENJOY- the Box Canyon Lodge and Hot Springs.

  1. I do consider all the ideas you’ve introduced on your post.

    They’re very convincing and will certainly work. Still, the posts are too short for newbies.
    May just you please lengthen them a little from subsequent time?

    Thanks for the post.
