Nestled beside Sheep Creek in Paradise, MT, Quinn’s Hot Springs Resort offers year-round bliss for the whole family. All the water is 100% natural, fueled from deep within the earth.
The hot springs resort is situated in the western part of Montana, about an hour northwest of Missoula. It comes complete with pools, lodging, a restaurant, a tavern, and other on-site amenities.
The resort name comes from an Irish immigrant who, during a mining transport in the late 19th century, noticed the natives spending time in a particular area. Upon realizing what was so special about the springs, he claimed the land for himself. The buildings he erected were the foundation of the facilities you see today.
Natural Hot Springs Pools
There are a variety of geothermal soaking pools and temperatures available. The coolest pool comes in at a warm 89°F and the hottest at 106°F. They even have an ice pool for those daring enough to take the polar bear plunge. It’s supposed to help your circulation and bump up your heart rate.
Overall these mineral hot springs, and those thermal waters like it, offer health benefits unmatched in a conventional hot tub or swimming pool.
Note that under Montana state law, children aged 2 years and under are not permitted in any of Quinn’s mineral water because it is chemical-free.
Overnight lodging guests enjoy unlimited pool access from 7 am to close. Public walk-in day visitors are permitted for 3-hour session windows, between 9 am and closing at 9 pm. Due to popularity and maximum capacity, it’s recommended to reserve your swim session in advance.
