Sanctuary • Stewardship • Spirit
Wilbur Hot Springs is a health sanctuary where all are welcome. Wilbur makes no distinction in the human family. Health is a human right and your rights are protected at Wilbur. Wilbur Hot Springs offers Sanctuary without feeding fear. True Sanctuary provides safety, health, healing and kindness. This land and its healing waters offer a unique opportunity to slow down, quiet the mind, and listen deeply. There is little to distract you from the basic tasks of soaking, resting, reflecting, and exploring nature.
We all contribute to the stewardship of this unique place. On our end, we do our best to minimize our impact on the land & its waters. We rely on solar power for our energy, clean with non-toxic products, compost our kitchen scraps, recycle what we can, and plant native or non-invasive species. Our guests do their part to honor the sanctuary by driving slowly, showering prior to entering the flumes, tidying up after themselves, and respecting quiet hours and silent areas so that all may enjoy Wilbur with ease and simplicity.
Wilbur inspires personal reflection and connection to spirit. Here you might dream, reflect, make music or art, have a revelation, grieve a loss, or experience healing. It’s the perfect place to write down your thoughts, have a deep conversation, or simply be. It is our hope that you find what you seek here, whether it be renewal, healing, connection, or inspiration. May you experience the many gifts Wilbur has to offer.
