Stewart Springs Mineral Retreat

It’s been said that all work and no relaxation is the perfect formula for a dull existence. Thankfully, with such beautiful flora and fauna in the North State, relaxation is just a short drive from home. Enter Stewart Springs Mineral Retreat, nestled peacefully on the banks of Park Creek, just four miles from the I-5 corridor in Weed.
   
Allow yourself a moment to take in the calming simplicity of the grounds—the towering pines, time-worn rocks and bubbling creek —that are home to Stewart Springs Mineral Retreat. Although the refreshingly rustic terrain may enchant your heart with the joy of the great outdoors, what lies within the confines of Stewart Springs is a luxurious treat for the mind, body and soul.
   
The mineral baths have regaled visitors with their ability to soothe weary muscles and bones, provide relief for skin conditions such as eczema and psoriasis, exfoliate skin and restore pH balance to the system. They are only a tip of the iceberg as far as the offerings at Stewart Springs are concerned, however. Because of the high mineral concentration in the water, bathing in the mineral bath is recommended for a maximum of 15 to 20 minutes per day, as overexposure to the silica can cause skin irritation. Many visitors opt to take a short bath in mineral water, which is heated to their individual specifications, and then take a refreshing dip in the rock-lined creek pool. Pure exhilaration might be the best description. 
   
The wood-burning saunas help further purify your system by creating the perfect environment in which to sweat out impurities. Schedule a massage or a yoga or meditation class for a full circle treatment and let the relaxation and refreshment settle into your soul.
   
The Glorified Roots Juice Bar offers a selection of fresh organic juices and smoothies that will delight your taste buds and rehydrate you after a day in the bathhouse. If all the fresh air and relaxation has you a bit hungry, look no further than the Creekside Café. The restaurant boasts a seasonal menu, including vegan and vegetarian options, beer and wine, all amidst a stunning backdrop of pines and flowing water. Creekside Café is open for dining whether or not you have opted for the mineral bath, sauna and dip in the creek, so stop by for a meal whenever you are in the area.
   
While Stewart Springs is an ideal getaway if you’d just like to skip town for the day, it makes for a lovely overnight stay, as well. Options for overnight accommodations include an A-frame house, apartments, teepees, tents and spaces for RVs and trailers. Sure, it’s the quintessential place for a peaceful-yet-romantic trip for two, sans kids. But the special group rate pricing may just encourage you to schedule your next birthday or anniversary among your closest friends or adult family members.
   
If the idea of getting married in one of the most beautiful and enchanting places in the North State sounds blissful, add the title of “perfect wedding venue” to Stewart Springs Mineral Retreat’s repertoire. With overnight accommodations for up to 60 people and room for nearly 100 guests at your event, you can treasure the memory of peace and relaxation on your wedding day for years to come. What a way to begin a happy life together.
   
Renowned worldwide for its natural beauty, Stewart Springs Mineral Retreat has a large number of visitors from Asia, Europe and the Middle East, in addition to many locals who consider Stewart Springs a bit of heaven on Earth. Visitors to Stewart Springs Mineral Retreat have boasted that their baths provide healing, renewal, and, in some cases, help with medical conditions. Although the healing abilities of the spring can’t be medically proven, it’s safe to say that there is something special to be found in the water at Stewart Springs.
