Wife and I spent the afternoon at the Hot Springs. Springs themselves were an excellent variety, Hot, Warm, Cold, Waterfalls. Off season so only a few couples. Food okay but would not eat there again. A little dated but we enjoyed the day.

Yes, of course. They even place swan folded towels on the bed. We stayed in the cabins. I recommend the larger ones, although the smaller cabins looked great as well.
