We we came up in the spring and stayed in our RV. We enjoyed it a lot. So for my Birthday we decided to bring our son and his girlfriend. We stayed in the lodge and our room had a wonderful view of the river, a full kitchen and two bedrooms one with a king bed the other had a queen. We stayed two nights total cost was $380. They also serve a continental breakfast. There are two pools each are fed by the hot springs. There are also cabin's and mountain homes that you can stay in as well as places for your RV. Nice place well worth the list.
Belknap is just one of those places you'd keep on going to over and over if it wasn't so expensive and wasn't so far away. It's an hour away from where I live. The bathrooms are not the greatest (Or the males one isn't. I haven't been in the ladies room of course.) They're kinda small and only have three toilets. Two urinals without dividers and one small stall. The showers are nice and hot as well. The main pool is awesome. Especially at night when they turn on the lights. The secondary pool which is only for overnighters is much smaller but in the shade most of the day. It is dirtier but that's not a problem. It has some nice tile designs on the bottom such as turtles and crabs. They have a large area for tent campers that are all very private and surrounded by beautiful, lush forest. There are a couple of Meadows and a garden surrounded by a wall called the Secret Garden. All of this is quite a bit of a walk across the bridge from the main Lodge. At the opposite end of the bride from the lodge you can see the hot spring source and warm up by it if you're a bit chilly. There are about eight cabins you can stay in (They're less like actual cabins and more like small houses). Along with RV spaces and tent spots out in the forest. This place is awesome and you should totally go there.
Great place to experience hot spring water! The lodge pulls the water into a swimming pool, its like a giant pool sized hot tub. There's a shallow end and a deeper end, the deeper end containing the warmer water since that's where the hot water output is. Clean facilities, there are locker baskets in the restroom if you want to leave your stuff there. You can bring your own lock if you have valuables to leave in there.
We are visiting this place every year. It’s not far from Portland so we have choices to stay over night or just visit for a day. Either way it’s a beautiful place to relax and soak in the hot spring. There are lots of walking trails along the river and through the gardens. I love their hidden garden. It’s beautiful and hidden. Ask for a map at front desk if you want to find the hidden garden.
We love it. Very low key mountain getaway. With the healing benefits of mineral waters, so close,you can see the source. Since I come with my daughter, it beats finding a hot spring off the beaten path, as swimsuits are required. I would, however appreciate other guests not complaining about what they do or dont have, they do a great job, considering it is hours up a mountain and a very old building. I, personally love it and always have.
