Avalanche Ranch Hot Springs and Cabins
If you follow on Instagram, you’ve already gotten a preview of our trip to Avalanche Ranch Hot Springs. After months of work in Colorado Springs, it was wonderful to get out to gorgeous Western Colorado, and wow, was it worth it!
The view from pretty much anywhere on the grounds was gorgeous, and while it was rainy for a good portion of our stay, I was lucky enough to wake up to fluffy snowflakes on our last morning. I snapped some photos, then promptly jumped in the springs for one last soak.
There is a top tier with two small pools that cascade down into a larger (but cooler) pool in front of the barn. The springs are open to day visitors, but guests have 24 hour access. The area is minimally lit at night (so I couldn’t snap any good nighttime photos), and incredibly relaxing and romantic. And because our stay was mid-week when they’re not too busy, we had the pools completely to ourselves at night!
Right in front of the gate to the pools is this little cabin with a wooden soaking tub. It’s a bit of a chilly dash from the springs pools, yet completely worth it once you’re ensconced in the tub!
We stayed in a cabin, but they also have these cute gypsy wagon campers, which looked like they’d be a ton of fun for kids.
Our Cabin at Avalanche Ranch
Our cozy cabin (we got the “Cider House”) was so cute!
The view was amazing! As you can see, it was rainy and snowy during our visit, but not too cold, making for perfect weather to soak in the hot springs.
The hot springs pools are open 24 hours for guests, and our little red stove was fantastic to come back to after a late night soak!
Now that I’m leaving Colorado, I’m wishing that we’d made it out to the gorgeous Roaring Fork valley earlier! Since we won’t be here long enough to take advantage of ski season, I’m already dreaming of coming back later this winter…
