I love Indian Hot Springs Bath House the best among all spa facilities in Truth or Consequences.
It has only two indoor private baths.
The primitive and rustic atmosphere conversely made me feel spiritual affluence.
An old motel, Langford Tourist Courts began the business in the 1930s, and changed the name to Indian Hot Springs Bath House.
Lodgers get two free half-hour baths per day.
Walk-ins are welcome on a first-come / first-served basis, which is $4 per person for a half-hour bath.
The office is located across from the ‘40s-style efficiency apartments.
When parking in the lot, the host appeared, and accepted the cash.
Next to the office, there is the shack of private baths.
The left one is larger, and the right one is smaller.
First, I tried Large bath.
Baths are mostly natural-flow, straight out of the ground, so the rooms are located underground.
The half of the bathroom is the dressing space, and the tub is in the opposite side of the wooden bench.
The tub accommodates four people.
The water temperature was 106 degrees F.
Crystal clear water is constantly gushing from the gravel-bottom.
I was deeply impressed by the perfect atmospheric bath.
The water temperature in Small bath was higher around 109 degrees F, due to the size for two.
Small bath may be better in case of cold seasons.
The amount of water naturally flown seems less, so that there is a pump for maintaining constant flow.
Inside the homemade-looking box, the pump is there, which produces large noise.
It must be better switching off after adding enough hot water.
I dipped in the water, going down the narrow footsteps.
Different from Large bath, the tub is made of old woods.
The small pipe under water surface is the water outlet.
Activating the pump, fresh water is provided with the strong current.
The only two private baths of Indian Hot Springs Bath House warmed me from the heart.
