A Hot Springs Refuge in Saratoga, Wyoming
With many routes to take from Colorado, Wyoming is the closest state line. Although Cheyenne may not be known for its wellness-centric offerings, there is a hidden hot springs gem in a town about two hours heading northwest. The four-hour drive is serene and accented with plains and peaks. When checking into Saratoga Hot Springs Resort, say “yes” to the robe and freshly baked oatmeal cookies, along with a beer token or two. The rooms are rustic and complete with moose art. Opt for a hot spring poolside room, too, if that’s available.
Hit the onsite Snowy Mountain Brewery (convenient, or what?) for some sustenance in the form of pub grub, and wash it down with locally crafted hops. If you arrive at night, no problem. Approach the main, 98-degree, 70-foot-long pool, with just the right amount of illumination under the moonlight and a sky full of stars.
Next to the massive mineral pool sit several German hot springs teepees that reach up to 112 degrees, each offering a semiprivate refuge from the outside world. (On a weeknight, you may be the only guest gracing the waters.) Dip into the smaller teepees and walk long laps in the main pool, swirling in the warm, enriched waters.
Wake up and take advantage of the property’s programming. For some relaxation, stop by the spa. If you’re feeling active, head out on a snowmobiling or snowshoeing excursion during the wintertime, or a river float or scenic hike, come summer. Make sure to experience the springs in the daylight and, after one final soak, get back behind the wheel.
