Wilbur Hot Springs - Northern California Hot Springs Hotel Resort

~ Reservations Required ~


Wilbur Hot Springs is an off-grid, solar-powered destination resort with naturally occurring hot mineral springs located in the heart of an 1800-acre Nature Preserve. When you pass through the gate, you are entering a sanctuary—a refuge from the fast pace and noise of the modern world. This land and its healing waters offer a unique opportunity to slow down, quiet the mind, and listen deeply. The bathing area features the Fluminarium—an open-air bath house with three long flumes of volcanic mineral water with temperatures ranging from 98°-109°F°—an outdoor flume, a dry sauna, and a swimming pool. The Nature Preserve features miles of hiking and biking trails and the Fountain of Life, a unique natural geyser that erupts approximately every hour. There is little to distract you from the basic tasks of soaking, resting, preparing your meals, and exploring nature. Here, you can let go, sink into yourself, and reconnect with what matters most .
