Well worth the trip. The road to Kaslo and Ainsworth from Nakusp has lots of corners and is a bikers dream road. Once you get there a good soak in the hot springs makes it a dream weekend. The staff a... more »

This is our fifth time coming back to Ainsworth Hot Springs. The renovations they have done are amazing. We ate at the restaurant which was also renovated. It is beautiful but not quite as good as the... more »
Loved these hot springs. We will definitely try to get back here in the future. The caves are the best feature - very hot water and steamy, like a sauna. The pool is also a great temperature for enjoying for an hour. The cold plunge pool was a nice option for a brief dip. The food and service at the restaurant was quite good and we had a great view of the lake and mountain from our hotel room.
Gorgeous location. They have renovated so it looks way different than most pictures online. The rooms are beautiful beds are amazingly comfortable. Great view of the lake. Oh.. and unlimited hot springs and cave/steam room visits. Passes included in your stay! So worth it!
So awesome. There's a large outdoor hot pool and another, hotter, pool featuring a softly illuminated horseshoe shaped natural rock cave with two entrances you can walk through in about 3 feet of natural hot spring water that is actually entering the pool through several places in the caves walls. And right next to that is a cold plung pool with a waterfall falling into it. Can be very busy on the major holidays but even then is worth a visit. Restaurant and hotel on location.
Stopped at the Hotsprings to take our 5year old twin granddaughters to go in the pools and caves. I've been going there since I was 8 years old. They loved the caves, cold plunge and pool. The springs have changed drastically since I was young, and they keep getting better. Would recommend this as a stop for anyone.
From Summit to Sea
The main pool is laid out in such a way that groups can settle in sections. They have water fountains in the bathroom. Bring your clothing in a bag, they hold it for you while you soak. (Free) The lockers that are there are for locals only. The women's bathroom has toilet stalls, 4 change stalls and 3 shower stalls. The men's bathroom has shower stall but no change stalls. Each bathroom has an electric spinner to Sri g out your swimsuit, works great!! The cave pool make a big loop around, and it gets HOT! It is pretty dark in there as well. We were able to park our truck and trailer in the parking lot but it was only about half full. Check before you drive up there with a big rig.
