We bought a combo deal to use the hot springs and have a 3 course Prix Fixe dinner. Springs were not at all crowded and felt wonderful. Restaurant service was friendly and relaxed. Menu was creative and high quality. A great excursion out of South Lake Tahoe/Stateline area.

The hot springs have 5 pools for soaking, plus a heated swimming pool. Only one of the pools is available for children. Spa offers full services, and I had a very good Swedish massage there.
