Lava Hot Springs Inn & Spa in South East Idaho

Lava Hot Springs Inn & Spa General Description

Featuring 6 outdoor special use pools ranging in temperature from 95 to 110 degrees F and offer lodging and a full hot buffet breakfast each morning. The outdoor mineral hot springs are open to both the public and overnight guests.

The main Inn was completed in 1924 by the federal government as a sanitarium for war veterans. Wounded men would come to Lava on the train and enter the sanitarium for treatment of superficial wounds such as burns and shrapnel. The Inn later became the hospital for Lava and then a 'rest home'.

The current owners purchased the Inn in 1988 and have since built 6 outdoor natural mineral hot water pools and have 12 rooms (out of 30) with indoor jetted tubs supplied with natural mountain spring water. The Lava Hot Springs Inn is unique in Lava because they are the only facility with natural mineral hot water special use pools for guests. The Inn also provides a full buffet hot meal breakfast each morning for overnight visitors.

No Soap, Shampoo or BIO-Soap/Shampoo Allowed in Hot Springs! Avoid Being Fined!

Public hot springs are not bathing facilities and do not have 'plumbing' like that of commercial, improved hot springs. Soap and shampoo (including biodegradable soap and shampoo) do not completely breakdown naturally. This pollutes our water systems (ingested by fish, animals, humans) at or near the source. This is also illegal in most wilderness and public lands areas.
