Hot Sulphur Springs Resort & Spa offers a bevy of soaking options in northern Colorado. Located in the small town of Hot Sulphur Springs, the commercial site has nineteen individual, unique outdoor soaking pools—including one with a waterfall—and two indoor hot baths. In the summertime, an outdoor swimming pool provides a cool alternative. Clothing is required in the outdoor pools and optional in the indoor, private baths. The onsite spa offers a variety of massage services, body treatments, facials and waxing. Day soakers are welcome, but consider spending a night or longer in the 17-room motel, a private cabin or apartment. Accommodations are basic and smoking and alcohol are not allowed. This is a good place to relax and get away from it all for a while.
