This destination makes the most of the natural hot springs of Oregon, which are formed through geothermal activity underground. These naturally heated springs provide the most relaxing spa experience in naturally heated waters.

The water itself that is found in the hot springs at Breitenbush comes from the streams and water sources in the nearby Cascade mountain range. Over several thousands of years, the ground and surrounding areas have been maintained at temperatures up to 180 decrees Celsius and this has provided may different minerals and rock formations that all have excellent health benefits.
