Indian Summer in Southwest Colorado

It’s Indian summer in southwestern Colorado. So, it’s the perfect time to celebrate the unseasonably warm, dry weather that makes October to mid-November so appealing at Chipeta Solar Springs Resort & Spa. We embrace this shoulder season with special packages for wellness, romance and adventure.

If you’re craving a getaway that delivers on multiple fronts, it’s time to pack your bags and wrap your mind around an Indian Summer escape to Ridgway, Colorado!


Fringed by the majestic San Juan Mountain Range, the southwestern-inspired Chipeta encourages our boutique lodge’s guests to maintain wellness on the road with our spa treatments plus a pair of onsite solar heated thermal pools in our central outdoor courtyard. One is a tiled Roman style community bath set at 103F degrees, while the larger is a lap pool heated to 75F degrees.

Hot springs warm up the body and spirits beyond Chipeta in this region that’s revered for its natural heated medicinal waters. Our Three Springs Package includes:

Orvis Hot Springs ( offers seven soaking areas with natural lithium water ranging from 98F to a to a steamy 114F in the “Lobster Pot.” Four are located outdoors so you can enjoy the beautiful Colorado sunshine and star-filled evening sky. Three indoor soaking areas are primarily clothing optional.

Surrounded by towering mountains and lush forests, this crystal-clear natural hot springs swimming pool features kid-friendly amenities like a diving area, large slide, water volleyball and shallow section for young swimmers.
