Although the water rises from the travertine springs between 120 and 140 degrees, we maintain our soaking pools between 98 and 108 degrees. The water is a sodium bicarbonate type with significant levels of boron, calcium, lithium and magnesium along with several other beneficial minerals.
Native American elders and spiritual masters from the Crestone area consider this area on the west side of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains as one of the most sacred and energetically active places in North America. It is said that the water here is encoded with the energy of the earth from which it rises. Perhaps then, this water indeed is unique and special among all the hot springs of the state.
The 98°F cool pool is perfect for those with low tolerance of hot water and that still want to get the benefit of our minerals. The 104°F tower pool is a great middle temperature for soaking.The 108°F hot pool is an ideal temperature for those with arthritis, joint and muscle issues – with spectacular views of the mountains.
