Escape to Hot Springs: 14 Stunning Cabins for Soaking in the U.S.

14 Stunning Cabins for Soaking in the U.S.

With its many geological wonders, a tour of the United States isn’t complete without at least one day spent lounging in natural thermal springs. Mainly prolific in the Western U.S., these water features have curated a cult following, often prompting entire road trips dedicated to hitting as many as possible. While most of them are free to use, they all share a specialized etiquette that’s unlike any other. 

Many hot springs are clothing optional, meaning respect for your fellow bathers is a keystone of hot spring culture. This also means that taking photos can be difficult and to be wary of where your phone is pointing. At every site, there tends to be something in the water that makes everyone lovely and welcoming, providing the opportunity to shed any hesitancy and hop right in! So put on your bathing suit or your birthday suit because here are 14 cabins near hot springs in the United States.
