Stewart Mineral Springs Retreat (in Weed, CA): recommended?

Postby Jesus Malverde » Fri Jan 11, 2013 2:28 am

Howdy folks,
I heard about Stewart Mineral Springs Retreat (in Weed, CA) a couple of years ago from a Shasta local, though I have never actually visited the place.

Sounds like it's not a real natural hot springs resort, but sort of a heated mineral water soaking experience? Anybody actually stayed there? Any recommendations, pros/cons? Is the place worth a stop/stay for a soak after a Shasta climb?

"Sequestered in the Mt. Shasta foothills, Stewart Mineral Springs offers a unique environment of sacred mineral waters, affordable accommodations, and a variety of workshops and retreats. The indigenous Karuk Tribe has respected these springs for generations, and we¹ve honored their devotion for 130 years."


this implies that the springs are indeed natural...plenty of volcanism up there for a hot spring


the website also says they have a sweat lodge and that dogs stay free

...plus there you could stay a night as close as possible (aside from forest camping) to the easiest routes up Mount Eddy, but the road beyond to the trailheads is blocked by snow in winter and spring.
