Room Guests Registration for room guests and all vehicles is between 3:00 PM to 9:00 PM. Any room guest wishing to arrive early to soak may do so as early as 9:00 AM. Please notify the front desk that you are a room guest and they will make arrangements for you. As a courtesy to our other guests, you must register in person by 9:00 PM or have called for late check-in instructions to access the property.
Cancellations A $20 non-refundable deposit , per reservation, will be charged to your Mastercard or Visa at the time of reservation. This non-refundable deposit will go towards your room when you arrive. If you do not have a credit card and want to use cash, the room must be paid in full at the time of reservation. We have a 48-hour cancellation policy. That means if there is at least 48 hours notice of cancellation you will only forfeit your $20 deposit. If you cancel less than 48 hours ahead (or don't show) your credit card will be charged full price for your first night's reservation. If this is a multiple night reservation and we don't hear from you, you will be charged for the first night and all other reserved nights will be forfeited and made available to people on the stand-by list.

People wishing to walk their pets should use County RD. 3, (south towards Ouray). Make sure you clean up after your pet! In order to provide a peaceful and tranquil experience for everyone, we require pets to be on a leash at all times.
