Wilbur Hot Springs lies at the end of a long road in a remote valley about two hours northeast of San Francisco. Since 1865, folks have been shedding their clothes to enjoy these mineral-rich waters known for their bone-warming and detoxifying properties.
Here, where shy deer lurk between trees and dragonflies hoveer and hum above, you can spend a few hours in silence soaking your tired bones in a warm stone bath. There’s also a wonderfully dark hot sauna, and the hot pool overlooking the dry rolling hills is a sweet spot for reflection. There is also a wonderfully well-appointed communal kitchen on site for the use of guests, who bring and utilize there own food during their stay. Everything about this place, from the inimitabkle power of the wind and water, to the respectful reticence of the staff conspires towards the healing of one’s body and the revival of one’s spirit.
