Situated in the Kootenay Mountain range, along Kootenay Lake, Ainsworth Hot Springs Resort makes a great choice for relaxation and some time off, alone or with family. Take a room in the hotel and enjoy all the facilities, along with the pleasant, helpful staff. Unwind in the hot spring in the natural cave, or get into the outside hot tub. You can go for the two cold pools, one of which offers icy waters at a temperature of 5 C (40 F). The water from the springs has been used as pain relief since the times of the Ktunaxa people.

  • What is the common hotsprings? Boring pool? You can be in the very hot caves and relax there. Hot water flows through that caves. 
  • Like the majority of springs have become * commercial *, Ainsworth is busy. The warm pool is nice and the section of the caves is very hot and of course very busy because everyone wants to see the stalagtites of calcium. Small locker room but good concept to leave his bags away from the thieves with the counter of the employees.

  • My husband and I visited here last week. We both LOVED the hot springs. First of all, let me say that these hot springs do NOT smell at all sulfuric, like some of them do. They have the super hot one ...  read more »
  • Our family loves coming to Ainsworth Hot Springs! This is our second visit. The last time we came was 10 years ago and it was the best vacation we ever took. The location is amazing! This morning we sat in the hot springs and watched misty clouds obscuring the mountaintops over the lake while it lightly drizzled rain on us. It doesn't even matter what the weather is like because the water is so warm it's absolutely lovely. The rooms seemed newly and very tastefully decorated. The food and service is very good. I would highly recommend this as a vacation destination!
  • I've been coming here for years and they just keep improving. They service is super great, and the hot springs are "free" to enter if you're staying in the resort. They also offer daypasses for people who are camping or living near by. The prices haven't changed since I started coming five years ago, and they keep adding new features. They recently added better lighting in the cave and a bunch of new chairs around the main pool. They also renovated the gift shop.
  • Very nice hot springs. Me and the group I was with could've sworn that the hot spring wasn't as hot as it's been in years past though. You used to have to do a beeline throuhh the caves or you'd suffocate on the hot ait, it was great. Now you can sit in the back caves for 15 minutes and do just fine. Maybe it was an off day though because it was busy and the water was circulating around a lot
  • Came for family vacation. Reservation & check-in was easy and front desk was helpful. Room was clean and decently appointed. Bathroom was very nice. Restaurant was decent, 4 stars for family. Hot springs and pool is amazing. Scenery is top notch. Lots to do and see.
  • Nice place to relax after a day on the trails. Can get pretty crowded but there's always times when it's not too bad. The 'cave' is nice and hot and gives a bit of a sauna experience too. Just don't expect a natural experience - more of a warm pool.
