To be an ecologically friendly, full-service, Hot Spring Resort & Spa that provides guests with a relaxing and rejuvenating retreat from the stress and chaos of everyday life.
While utilizing as many of nature’s own renewable resources as possible, Mercey Hot Springs will be a full-service resort that is peaceful, tranquil, pollution and toxin free, that focuses on the natural, geo-thermally heated mineral-rich water that has been used by native visitors for thousands of years.
With the first phase of restorations completed along with essential improvements to the facility’s infrastructure, Mercey Hot Springs is a functional, model resort for off-grid sustainable practices.
Mercey has set its sights on obtaining a certification in Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design (LEED) that includes implementation of the best solar power equipment available (much of which is currently in operation) as well as other eco-friendly materials (for renovations) and supplies (for operations) whenever possible.
While intentionally retaining much of the original early 20th century ambiance, the style and décor of many of the structures further add to the tranquil spirit guests experience during their visit(s) with us. A recent renovation of a building, justifyably named the “Phoenix”, derives its name after the well known symbol of re-birth. Phoenix occupies a portion of the land where two original buildings were built in the late 1890’s, but met their demise when they burned down in the mid 1920’s, and now house a common area library as well as two rooms that are dedicated for massage and other therapy services.
Another addition is a 1,500 square foot tent called the “Pavilion” where Yoga classes and other activities, such as a variety of holistic workshops, as well as other activities can be hosted. While restoration is always preferred rather than building new, our vision also includes restoring a 1920’s vintage house that we currently refer to as the “White House”. When completed, the building will be our solution to a much needed restaurant that will serve locally sourced food along with as much organic ingredients as possible, some of which will be produced on-site for guests to enjoy.
As many of our guests realize, our progress is only possible by the continued patronage and support of our guests who visit year after year; for this, we offer our deepest gratitude!
