Whether you're just returning from a trip in the Sierra backcountry and you are in need of some recuperation or you are simply looking for a rejuvenating getaway, the cabin and hot springs retreat of Mono Hot Springs Resort may just be the perfect remedy. Set at 6,600 feet along the South Fork of the San Joaquin River, the remote mountain retreat rents cobblestone cabins and runs a therapeutic hot spring bathhouse along with a café and general store.

Open seasonally from mid-May through October (dates vary year to year depending on snowfall), the resort lies across the river from the public hot spring pools of Mono Hot Springs, popular with both resort guests and campers staying at the adjacent campground

Originally constructed in the 1930s and 1940s, the rustic cabins are built of local river rock and wood, and they fit in well with the surrounding environment. Some things to keep in mind before booking:

  • Cabins range from single room to two-bedroom options.
  • Amenities range from very basic with no inside kitchen or shower up to a high end honeymoon cabin. For kitchenless cabins you would need to be set up for outdoor, camp-style cooking.
  • All cabins have private indoor toilets. Those without showers have access to the bathhouse showers and baths. Free access to the bathhouse is provided with the cabins.
  • Due to the remote location, the resort's electricity is powered by solar panels and a generator. While Wi-Fi is available, there are no electrical outlets in the cabins; any charging needs are can be met using a secure location within the general store.

For those who are looking to stretch their legs, the resort sits at the edge of an expansive Sierra Wilderness. Trails lead out the backyard for destinations like Doris Lake, Mono Meadows, and beyond. Five miles up the road is Lake Thomas A Edison and access to the John Muir Wilderness. Trout fishing is also a popular activity in the area, and the river waters and nearby tributaries provide some great stretches. The resort can arrange to book fly fishing guides.

Seasonal access to Mono Hot Springs resort is by way of Kaiser Pass Road and is dependent on snowfall. Take caution in driving the 10-mile one-lane twisty stretch beyond Huntington Lake as it contains multiple blind corners. Large RVs and trailers are not advised.
