Soak the Day Away in the Warm Waters of Your Own Private Spa
Your feet are sore, muscles aching after a magical day exploring the Central Cascades. All you want is to relax with a cold beverage of your choosing against the backdrop of a nice view while the evening air turns crisp. It is for moments like these that hot tubs were invented. The Pacific Northwest is littered with secret hot springs – which aren’t so secret anymore thanks to Instagram. And while these hot springs are novel, there is nothing quite like a temperature controlled soak in the privacy of your own hot tub at the end of the day. Many of our cabins and vacation rentals have private tubs, but these are our favorite hot tub vacation rentals
Perched on an expansive deck just above the majestic Skykomish River, the hot tub at Jaybird Retreat offers up sweeping views of the Cascade Mountains. Both sightlines and nature sighting abound with past visitors observing black bears crossing the river, eagles building nests a few doors down, and hummingbirds zipping by.
If the “cabin in the woods” vibe is more your style, then you will love the hot tub at Alpine A-Frame. Surrounded by dense woods of pine, birch, and maple, the stillness of the forest provides an uncomplicated and rustic return to the basics. Light the fire pit nearby and look up, watching the burning embers rise into the star filled nights.
Nestled in the woods on a pristine riverfront lot, the hot tub at Bonny Sky Lodge rewards bathers with both privacy and panoramic views of the Cascade Mountains. Nothing short of awe inspiring, the outdoor spaces at this home will invite you back again and again.
On the banks of the Skykomish River, you’ll discover a true gem. Diamond in the Sky Lodge is the stuff cabin porn is made from. Along with its river rock chimney, symmetrical architecture, and incredible outdoor space, the hot tub at this house is the perfect place to take it all in. Mountain views and wide open skies are a feast for the eyes while the nearby firepit crackles and pops, casting a long shadow into the night.
Inside, contemporary comforts abound at this mid century modern escape, but beyond its doors – a quiet deck with a hot tub, gas grill, and outside dining area tucked into the forest. Enjoy an evening BBQ with your family followed up by a soak and a glass of wine as the kids roast marshmallows. You may never want to leave.
Modern luxuries combine with outdoor amenities and lush surroundings at Galena’s Getaway. This riverfront home, set on 2 ½ acres of private land, is more like an oasis than simply a vacation rental serving up nature trails, fishing holes, and a private hot tub great for stargazing.
Filled with a refined rustic charm, the Cedarstone Riverhouse hot tub provides sanctuary for all who seek it. And why wouldn’t you? With the sounds of the Skykomish River churning over rocks and branches feet away and the wind blowing through the trees that surround you, this spa is more like Sangri-La than hot tub.
The Pacific Northwest is known for the moss that blankets the forest, lending a fairytale and ethereal quality to the outdoors here. Step into a magical world all of your own when you slip into the warm waters of the hot tub at Hearthstone Cottage flanked by towering trees and verdant foliage. An added bonus: this hot tub is brand new, so you can soak for hours without worry.
Much like the rest of this cozy A frame cabin, the hot tub at Mountain Play Chalet is delightfully quirky and intimate. Perfect for a romantic night spent under the stars, this spa is just steps from your private deck and gas grill where you can enjoy a delicious al fresco meal before your evening soak.
Wherever you decide to lay your head, there is also a perfect option to soak your tired feet at the end of a long day.
