Attention Guests: Closure Update 05/24/20
In response to increasing public health concerns around the spread of Coronavirus (COVID-19), we made the difficult decision to close our facilities on March 17, 2020. Sierra Hot Springs is categorized as Stage 3 business in the reopening plan for California. We will be monitoring the spread of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) situation very closely and will let you know about the reopening date once we have all the information from the federal, state and county health authorities indicating that it is safe to reopen. If your reservation falls within this time frame, it will be cancelled and our office staff will add a credit to your file. We will post COVID-19 or other updates on our website and Facebook pages. Please stay safe.
We are reaching out to ask for your support. Read our letter to the community here.
