My husband and I stayed in cabin 10 on March 18th and 19th and loved it. It has to be the cutest cabin ever and had everything we needed. The cabin had a real rustic look and was very comfortable. It's within walking distance of the hot springs and in a very quiet location. We are definitely coming back to...

Alpaca Inn is a wonderful place to stay. My husband and I have stayed there twice and both times have experienced charm, friendliness, cleanliness, comfort, restful atmosphere, beautifully decorated rooms that are complete with a kitchenette. This is a very cozy and quiet place to stay. I highly recommend the Alpaca Inn.

It was fun to learn about the Alpaca's which the owners have (pictures, rugs, etc). When I made the reservations we had a lot of great information to help us understand about the rooms, restaurant choices, and...

I asked "If you had family coming to town, where would you have them stay?" I loved that the responses...

We recently spent two nights at the darling Alpaca Inn. Jody and Londa are fabulous hosts and we enjoyed our stay. I loved that when we arrived, we had the room code and could go directly to our room. New room within walking distance to the hot pools, restaurants and bars. Great bedding and towels. Super clean and nicely furnished....

Lava Hot Springs is small and this inn is a few feet off the main drag and walking distance to the hot pools. The owners have put in many lovely personal touches and some neat wooden furniture. The room is big with a small fridge, microwave, a table, coffee/tea making and signs invite you to call for anything you need....

Nice little cute inn. Staff is awesome and accommodating. Was very kind and gave suggestions to eat and play. Within walking distance to shops, hot pots, and bars. I have also stayed in their apartment that has many rooms for several people or to fit a family. Highly recommended!
