Welcome To Vichy Springs


Vichy Springs Resort, established in 1854, is a unique 160-year old historic hot springs resort only two hours north of downtown San Francisco.

Vichy Springs is the best of two worlds, a country inn and hot springs resort. Vichy Springs offers the only naturally warm and carbonated “Vichy” mineral baths in North America. Vichy Springs offers rooms and cottages for overnight stays. Included in room rates are full use of the naturally warm and carbonated “Vichy” mineral baths, hot soaking pool, Olympic size swimming pool (in season) and 700 private acres for walking and hiking.

No Pets allowed.

Come and experience a true carbonated “Vichy” mineral bath and a walk on the beautiful 700 acre private reserve . You will “feel a million miles from your cares, and your heart will sing a new song.” (Timeless quote, from a 1914 resort brochure)

The Vichy Baths date to the times of The Roman conquest of what is now France when Julius Caesar discovered “Vichy” water or literally “hot cross” meaning warm water crossing their path. The story relates that Caesar’s horses, depleted of minerals from the hard pace they had kept, drank the water and became immediately stronger.

The “Vichy” Baths are 90°F (32°C) naturally carbonated mineral baths. The water flows from 30,000 feet below the surface into the adjacent spring source and directly into 154-year old tubs. Fourteen individual tubs are available for your enjoyment, 4 outside and 10 inside. The healing powers of the “Vichy” Baths are not to be underestimated.

History of Vichy Springs Resort

The history of Vichy Springs Resort spans from the pre-written history of the local Pomo Native Americans (over 5,000 years ago) to the present day spa operations. The actual springs are estimated to be well over five million years old. Extensive travertine and ancient travertine onyx deposits are indicators of the various springs’ ages. The Pomos used the springs during their sole residency in the Yokayo Valley. They used the waters, according to personal verbal revelation to Gilbert Ashoff from Edna Guerrero and Elsie Allen both aged elders in 1978, for gout, arthritis, rheumatism, poison oak, burns, cuts, psoriasis and eczema.

During the early 1800’s the entire Ukiah Valley (an Anglicization of “Yokayo” which means “deep valley” in the local Pomo dialect) was granted by Mexico (California was then part of Mexico) to Cayetano Juarez. Senor Juarez owned extensive holdings elsewhere and never developed much in Ukiah. Credit for discovering the spring is given to Frank Marble the first “caucasian” to arrive in the Ukiah Valley in 1849, the year of the big rush of gold seekers to California. Squatters followed and by 1852 William Day had established his residence and had completed at least three cottages at “Day’s Soda Springs” in Ukiah. These three cottages still stand and are in use at the resort to this day.
