Lounging in hot spring is always a wanted experience in my books. No matter where in the world I am, as soon as I see hot springs, I am all over it. Or should I say, straight into it. So clearly visiting a town that is named after its hot springs is a no brainer.
Harrison itself is a beautiful place, situated right on the shores of Harrison Lake, and surrounded by mountains, it is a prime vacation spot for adventure enthusiasts looking for all sorts of activities. Strolling through the town along the lake shores invigorates one with a very romantic feel.
If your on your life long search for the Sasquatch, apparently this would be the area to go on that expedition.
This particular visit though was all about the hot springs, we even stayed at the Harrison Hot Springs Resort so we were in crawling distance of the Springs. There is something incredible and completely rejuvenating about even just looking out your balcony window and seeing hot springs there. Just waiting and calling out to you.
There are three different outdoor pools to choose from. A family pool with a temperature of 28 c/ 83 f.
A lap pool with a temperature of 28°c/ 83°f, for those of you whom want to make sure you get your fitness in.
And my personal favorite, the adult hot pool with a beautifully toasty temperature of 37°c/98°f.
So there is the option to pool hop, or simply enjoy your ideal temperature all day. They also have an indoor swimming pool and hot pool if you fancy you fancy a more enclosed environment.
The ambiance of the Resort is very classy. Historical classy would be another way to describe it, as it dates back to 1886. The resort truly has history and class, two things that rate high in my appreciation list. The decor is very chic and warm, it makes you feel right at home. Seriously, I was contemplating moving in and never leaving. Even the bed was so comfortable I didn’t want to get out of it.
We spent most of our time in the Springs. What else would you expect in a situation such as this?
Our itinerary consisted of hot springs dip, then quick break for a freshen up, then hot springs dip, then get ready for dinner, then after dinner hot springs dip, then wake up and start the day with none other then a hot springs dip(after coffee that is… Priorities!), I am sure you get the picture.
I was loving it so much I could not resist hugging one of the resident tree’s.
With four various restaurants to choose from to dine, it can be difficult to decide when you are not there for a few days to try them all. Oh, who am I kidding. It wasn’t hard for us to pick one.
The Copper Room has live music and a dance floor surrounded by linen covered tables. Dining and dancing is such a rare pleasure these days, it really made me feel as though I was transported back into a classic romantic movie. Although this evening was a romantic dinner with my sister – and I would not have had it any other way. Sister getaway’s are the best.
The music was fantastic, and the service and cuisine are to boast about. I was in a little slice of heaven, a dream that I didn’t want to wake up from.
Having the amenity to enjoy an after dinner evening soak in the springs, just made the evening unforgettable. In fact the whole experience at Harrison Hot Springs Resort will be one that I will not soon forget, and should the opportunity arise to revisit, I will be there in a heartbeat.
