Glenwood Hot Springs is an eco-friendly resort, utilizing the hot springs resource to heat buildings, including the Glenwood Hot Springs Lodge. 

Some people refer to the mineral waters as “liquid gold” for their restorative and healing properties. The springs benefit those suffering from arthritis, fibromyalgia, depression and other maladies. 

Relax in the therapy pool and take a look around at the surrounding hillsides. Ablaze with every fiery shade of orange and ochre; the views from the pool are picture postcard perfect.
