|| Boulder Hot Springs Inn and Spa has historically been a place of retreat,
sanctuary, peace and healing. We are dedicated to supporting and perpetuating
that important tradition.
We honor all people and all spiritual approaches here as well as all
animals, the earth and all of creation. We especially honor the children
who are the future and the elders who are the repositories of the wisdom
of our ancestors and those who have gone before.
We realize that not everyone wants to be in a healthy smoke-free, alcohol-free,
and drug-free environment.
We realize that not everyone shares the values of a healthy environment
for body, mind and spirit.
We respect your decisions and Boulder Hot Springs Inn and Spa may not
be the place for you. And, we also know that there are many who are
seeking just such a place.
For those of you who share our philosophy and dreams, here we are!
Because of these beliefs and commitments, we ascribe to the philosophy
of being a “green hotel.” Being a green hotel means that
we make every attempt to conserve and recycle by living with the planet
instead of destroying it or using it up.
The philosophy practiced here is in keeping with very ancient traditions
and the “latest” discoveries in quantum physics and chaos
theory (although sometimes we seem better at chaos!).
We try to have and live an open system approach in all that we do. This
means that we welcome feedback and change and assume as we have more
participation and information, we will all fare better in this place
and on this planet.
Therefore, we hope to create a place of retreat, rejuvenation and healing
where all will feel that they have come home, and can come home to themselves.
We have been in the process of restoring this magnificent old building
which has been so close to the hearts of so many native Montanans and
• We have completely remodeled the heating system to take advantage
of the geothermal waters so plentiful here.
• We have had natural-fiber wool carpets especially designed in
the native colors and hues of the natural landscape surrounding the
• We have lobbied with other hot springs in the state to get laws
modified so that we do not have to add harmful chemicals to our plunges,
so you get only the minerals nature intended.
• Our 103-106F degree pools have a constant flow-through that
completely changes the water in the plunges every four hours, thus ensuring
the highest levels of pure thermal water.
• Our plunges are also completely drained and cleaned every night.
We have always far exceeded the health codes for cleanliness.
• Our swimming pool uses the less toxic bromine to meet state
• Our Bed & Breakfast rooms and suites present our guests
with only the best high-thread-count natural fibers in our sheets, towels
and spa robes.
• Our rooms are smoke-free and technology free, so your stay will
not be interrupted or disturbed.
As we have come to know and gradually restored this building, we have
recognized that “we cannot heal and restore the people and the
building without restoring the land, and that we cannot restore the
land without healing the people and the building.”
Clearly, all these processes work together and go hand-in-hand. This
learning has resulted in our launching a program to restore the natural
wetlands in front of the Inn & Spa. These wetlands were artificially
drained to provide more pasture and we have made a commitment to restore
the natural habitat for wetland birds and animals.
Already the birds and animals — foxes, coyotes, deer, sandhill
cranes, ducks, elk, bears, moose, antelope and beavers – have
realized that this land is a sanctuary for them, just like it is for
Boulder Hot Springs Inn and Spa is a recipient of the prestigious Eco-Star
Award, given for our efforts in recycling and conservation. We strive
to encourage, promote and support ecological consciousness with all
with whom we come in contact.
We have an extensive recycling program and guests are invited to participate
when staying here.
These things taken together define the philosophy of Boulder Hot Springs
Inn, and we believe that here, you will find a place of peace like no
other in the world.
Honoring, Conserving, Recycling, & Healing...
This is Your Place in the Sun!
