Chico Hot Springs Resort

Welcome to
The Good Old Days

A prized location in the Paradise Valley just thirty-or-so miles from Yellowstone National Park, two pools fed with water from natural geothermal hot springs, and a spot on the National Register of Historic Places are just part of what makes Chico Hot Springs Resort the kind of place couples, families, and friends have been coming to faithfully for over 100 years. It’s the world-class dining, heartfelt hospitality, and singular resort experience on over 700 rolling Montana acres that keep it that way.

Practically Paradise

The historic Chico Hot Springs is perfectly located in Pray, Montana, thirty miles from the north entrance of Yellowstone National Park—and not near much of anything else. Truth is, that’s just the way we like it. Our close connection with nature gives us more time to focus on enjoying life as it should be, whether that means a soak in our natural hot springs, long days of fly fishing and hiking, or simply enjoying time spent in good company.

Soak It Up

At the heart of our resort lies our natural treasure: two geothermal pools, whose steamy water has consistently flowed in this very location for over a century. Come for the chance to soak up the water’s restorative properties—chock full of rich minerals from the earth—and leave feeling blissfully at ease.

A Little Something for Everyone!

“I have been visiting Chico since I was a child on family vacations. Now my own kids are grown, and Chico still never disappoints! Everything we had at both restaurants was delicious! Overall, give this place a try if you are in the area or even if you are going through Yellowstone. You will love it!”

Heaven on Earth

“Chico sits in the heart of Paradise Valley and it certainly IS paradise. We rented a room in the main lodge which entailed the use of a shared bathroom. For us it was perfect. The food was THE best I had on my entire 2.5 week trip around Montana. I really loved my stay here and had a difficult time leaving. DEFINITELY making this a must stay again.”

“Thoroughly enjoyed my stay at Chico Hot Springs! Perfect and beautiful location. Said "WOW, this is gorgeous" about a hundred times - there is beauty in every direction. The hot spring pools are awesome and much needed after a day of great trail riding at Rockin' HK Outfitters. To top it off, the hospitality is top notch! Highly recommend the resort”
