The Casita features two upstairs bedrooms each with a sleeping capacity of 4, there are two bathrooms, a spacious kitchen with cozy dining area & a large living room/game room.

Guests may enjoy the use of all six acres of gardens and grounds. The Yurt and Hot Tub are available at additional costs – please see the Options Menu page

For hygiene reasons, the hot tub is only available to groups of 12 or less with liability waive. It is maintained more naturally with bromide and ozone treatments.

The 30′ Yurt with wood burning fireplace is available to community and professional groups as a space for various activities such as yoga, meditation, working, team building, music and other creative endeavors.

There are various board games and ping pong available.

We will greet you upon your arrival, give you a tour, answer any questions and ensure that you are ready to enjoy your stay at Cold Springs.  We aim to minimize our presence and to respect your desired level of privacy during your visit, but may be onsite if the need arises. We are happy to discuss this further to ensure your satisfaction and comfort
