When you are around the Asheville  area or rafting on the French Broad river, don’t forget to visit the Hot Springs Resort and Spa.  It is a family run business with outdoor Jacuzzi type hot tubs, that are filled with a continuous flow of the 104 degree natural mineral water. It is a BIG HIT with French Broad Rafting river guides and staff.   After a day of rafting, paddling, or hiking there is nothing better than relaxing in the hot mineral water.  We highly recommend reservations. While making your reservation for your soak,be sure to make your reservation for a massage or body treatment.  They offer Swedish, Deep Tissue, or Hot Stone massages.  If you have not been to the Hot Springs Spa in the last two years, then you must check out their new store and healing facility.http://www.nchotsprings.com/nc-hot-springs-spa-services.html

If you are looking camping or cabins to stay in the Hot Springs Campground is right across the street from the Spa.  The Campground has RV hook ups, tent camping, and camping cabins.  While you are at the campground make sure get a bite to eat at “Good Eats” located in the campground store. The owners, Martha and Sachie, make great burritos with only fresh ingredients.  My favorite is the breakfast burritio.  For lodging check out  http://www.nchotsprings.com/nc-hot-springs-resort-lodging.html
