Hunters Hot Springs, located just north of Lakeview, Oregon, is a simple hotel known for its large hot spring pool and active geyser. While it’s not a luxurious resort, it provides its guests with clean, comfortable accommodations and superb service.
The lodge is located just north of the California border, about 3 hours east of Medford, OR on State Highway 140. It’s a special resort that puts their attention to four key points:
food, music, wellness, adventure and fun.
Natural Hot Spring Pool
The highlight of Hunter Hot Springs, for many, is the large, in-ground concrete pool. This pool is filled with geothermally heated mineral water from a nearby source, so it’s always at a perfect temperature for soaking. Water emerges from the source at nearly 200° F, but it has cooled to an appropriate temperature by the time it reaches the pool.
Due to the composition of the minerals present in the water, the pool is often tinted green. To remedy this, and to ensure the pool stays sanitary, the resort drains and refills it nightly. Access to the hot springs pool is included for guests of the hotel, but visitors may also purchase a day pass at the front desk of the hotel.
There is also a hot tub filled with mineral thermal water. It’s a terrific way to relax after a long day of adventuring in southern Oregon.
Besides the pool, Hunter Hot Springs is well-known for Old Perpetual, the Pacific Northwest’s only active geyser. Generally, Old Perpetual shoots 200-degree water to heights of fifty feet approximately every ninety seconds, making it a popular tourist attraction.
Hunter Hot Springs, which a few years back underwent a complete renovation after a transfer of ownership, offers three types of distinct categories of rooms; standard, standard double, and deluxe.
- Standard Rooms come equipped with a large queen or king bed, a private bathroom with a tub/shower combo, a small sitting area, and a newly installed Apple TV.
- Standard Double Rooms include the same amenities with the addition of a second bed.
- Deluxe Rooms are larger and offer the accommodations listed above with the addition of a sizeable kitchenette featuring a microwave and refrigerator.
Accommodations are dog-friendly and come equipped with air-conditioning and complimentary wifi. A maximum of 3 dogs per room are permitted, with some breed restrictions, and only are allowed in select rooms.
In addition to the guestrooms, the hotel is also home to a lounge and restaurant.
