Wilbur Hot Springs - Northern California Hot Springs Hotel Resort

WHS Fire

Dear Friends,
As you may know, our beloved hotel was lost to a fire on Saturday, March 29. Thankfully no one was
injured. We have received an overwhelming outpouring of support and love from our worldwide family
who call Wilbur home. We are moved by each and every one of you.

Many of you are inquiring about making financial contributions, volunteering, and sending sentiments and good wishes. Please see the links below for more information.

We are happy to say that our precious mineral waters, the nature preserve, and all other structures on the property were untouched by the fire. The spring rains hold promise for a glorious wildflower season this
year. And we are already making plans to reopen soon for day use visitors, camping, and limited overnight stays in the Solar Lodge.

The Millers  

We all feel passionate about Wilbur as a place of healing and refuge and we are doing everything we can
to create renewal and make space for you, our community, to return. We will continue to post updates on
this site, so check back when you can. We look forward to seeing you here soon.

Much love,
Dr. Richard and Jolee Miller,
Sarana Miller and the staff of Wilbur Hot Springs
