About Waunita Hot Springs Ranch

Waunita Hot Springs Ranch, located high in the Colorado Rockies at an elevation of 8,946 ft., is 10 miles west of the Continental Divide. The ranch is surrounded by Gunnison National Forest land and summer pasture in eastern Gunnison County.

Our remote location means guests aren't disturbed by passing traffic (maybe a yelping coyote now and then). Usually the only creatures you encounter while riding forest trails are occasional deer and elk. And the stars are always bright in Waunita Country! The lodges are located at the edge of the forest overlooking Tomichi Dome and a high "mountain park." Cattle can be seen grazing in the Waunita Valley.

Although we are only ten miles from the Continental Divide and scenic mountains surround our valley, the ranch grounds are comparatively level. We are only a short drive away from two major ski resort areas.

Our main lodge, is where most of the activity happens—the dining room for meals and snacks, the lobby for gathering for activities, and the living room for a game of pool or relaxing and enjoying conversation or a good book.

Our main lodge also provides accommodations for most of our guests; each room has with a private bath and comfortable beds. We also offer lodging in our Hillside Lodge, which is great for family groups. These provide units with four rooms each, and complete privacy.

And then there's the pool. Fed by the natural hot springs, the 35x90 ft pool is one of the largest private pools in Colorado. With an adjacent bath house and hot tub, there's plenty of room for swimming, splashing and relaxing.

There's also other facilities to make your stay a comfortable one. We have a small gift shop should you need varioous small and sundry items. In case you need to do laundry, there's a laundry room behind the lodge with washers and dryers.
