Harrison Hot Springs Resort is situated on the shoreline of Harrison Lake in British Columbia, Canada, 90 miles east of Vancouver and less than three hours north of Seattle. It features a handful of thermal spring pools, a spa, dining on-site, plus overnight accommodations.
This pet-friendly, rustic resort had welcomed travelers since 1886 when the first hotel was built alongside five hot mineral springs pools. By then, indigenous peoples of the area had been visiting the springs for hundreds of years.
Natural Hot Springs Pools
This beautiful resort showcases five natural mineral pools heated geothermally. There is a high dissolved mineral content in the waters, approximately 1,3000 parts per million. Like other hot springs, they offer a range of benefits, from improving your skin tone to removing toxins from the kidneys and bowels.
The five total pools, two inside “quiet zones” and three outside, are open daily from 8 am to 11 pm. However, only adults are permitted after 10 pm.
- Indoor sitting pool – Great for soaking and runs 100-103° Fahrenheit (38-40° Celsius). It’s a relaxing temperature for longer soaks promoting the healing of body aches and mental stress.
- Indoor crescent pool – This is cooler and averages 90°F (32°C). It’s great for a swim and to cool off after soaking in the hotter pools.
- Outside adult sitting pool – The water here comes piping hot from the source, but is cooled to a very comfortable 90-95°F (32-35°C). The nature setting here includes a waterfall, plants, and various rock formations.
- Outside family pool – This is the larger of the two outdoor soaking pools and is kept a little warmer at 95°F (35°C). This one has a ramp to walk into the pool and is surrounded by a non-skip deck with heated frost-proof clay tile.
- Outside lap pool – The third and final outdoor pool is kept around 87°F (30°C) and is perfect for exercise and getting your laps. in.
Five buildings offer a variety of lodging choices with all the conveniences. Some of the lodging rooms boast views of Mount Breckenridge and Harrison Lake.
