Waunita Hot Springs is a family owned guest ranch and bed & breakfast, hidden east of Gunnison. Lodging and hot springs are open year round. Day use is available at times, like winter. Other ranch activities include 4×4 trips, hayrides, rafting and horse rides.
For swimming there is a long, 35×90 foot pool open year round. It’s only open to overnight guests June through September, and open to the public from October through May. It’s kept at 95° F. There is also another hot springs tub kept at 100°F.
You can stay the night in either the Hillside Lodge or Ranch House. The main floor of the Ranch house contains billiards, dining hall, library and two fire places. The second floor contains the overnight rooms each with private baths. The Hillside Lodge features two sections of four rooms.
Fishing and horseback riding are available throughout the summer, and Waunita’s location puts it between Crested Butte and Monarch for winter skiing.
