Wilbur Hot Springs Rises from the Ashes

714fridgeroomexpansion8

Wilbur Hot Springs resort is once again open for weary guests seeking respite from the fast pace of modern life. The top two floors of the historic hotel were taken by fire in late March. The fire was devastating to the many guests who consider Wilbur their personal sanctuary but it did not curb the spirits of the owner and its staff. The main floor of the hotel, left mostly unscathed by the recent fire, is already in the process of being restored. One of the first poured concrete buildings in California, the main floor of the hotel will remain the same as before consisting of a lobby, library, two bedrooms, two dining rooms, community kitchen with a new refrigeration room, and an open-air veranda. The staff has worked tirelessly to upgrade other buildings on the site to accommodate overnight guests and have added a new community kitchen and dining area so guests can still enjoy cooking their favorite meals.

Coming to Wilbur this fall will be new private guest cabins similar to those that originally existed at Wilbur in 1910. Located a short walking distance from the Hotel, each cozy cabin will consist of two separate units with bedrooms and private bathrooms. The cabins are being constructed off site, so that guests can visit immediately and enjoy all that Wilbur has to offer during this process. Award-winning Architect, Nick Noyes, Lake County Contractor, Mark Mitchell, founder of Little House on the Trailer, Steve Marshall and Eric Poulson will be heading up the team designing and building the new guest cabins.

Since mid-May, guests have returned to Wilbur Hot Springs to stay in the newly refurbished Solar Lodge, a unique passive-solar structure built into the hillside designed to stay cool in the summer and warm in the winter.

Each guest room has two beds—one on the main floor and one in a sleeping loft with an expansive view of the surrounding countryside.

Once again, visitors can “take the waters.” The bathing area features an open-air onsen with three long flumes of volcanic mineral water at temperatures ranging from 98°-110°F, a dry sauna and a swimming pool. Wilbur’s geothermal water contains three ounces of dissolved minerals per gallon and is entirely undiluted, untreated, and unheated—which is rare in North America.

Something old, something new, and clear, blue skies at Wilbur Hot Springs. The grand opening of the new lodging facilities will take place this fall, once restoration is completed.

Wilbur Hot Springs is an off grid/solar powered, destination resort with naturally occurring hot mineral springs located in the heart of an 1800-acre private Nature Preserve. The owner, Dr. Richard Louis Miller, Jolee R. Miller and staff consider themselves as stewards of a healing sanctuary. Long time guests and new visitors alike, appreciate the beauty of the land and its healing waters for the unique opportunity to unplug, slow down, quiet the mind and relax.
