In the chill of winter, what could be better than a relaxing, therapeutic vacation? Think private mineral springs for a healing soak, playing in an outdoor mineral swimming pool in the snow and, finally, a relaxing massage to work out the kinks. Miracle Hot Springs and Banbury Hot Springs are 15 minutes apart, and each provides all the facilities you need for a wellness retreat, including accommodations.
Miracle Hot Springs is known for its soft, alkaline water. The resort offers private hot pools and four outdoor pools of varying temperatures.
Banbury Hot Springs’ geothermal mineral water comes out of the earth at 138 degrees and mixes with cold spring water to cool to a comfortable soaking and swimming temperature as it fills the resort’s private baths and the 120-by-60-foot swimming pool.
Depending on which resort you choose to stay at, lodging options include a vacation home rental, dry cabins with shared toilet and bath facilities or geodesic-dome glamping cabins.
Buhl is located in the Snake River Valley about two hours from Boise. Book your stay and reserve your private pools at miraclehotspring.com. Learn more about visiting Southwest Idaho at visitsouthwestidaho.org.
