Belknap Springs Travel Guide: 14 reviews and 16 photos

We stayed one night at BHS on the recommendation of our son who shared a cabin on the river there. Since we were now traveling with 2 dogs, we were limited to the "dog cabins". What a huge disappointment! What a dump! When the reservation was made, we were informed that the dog cabins had no linens, which was fine. What they don't tell you is the cabins have 0 ammenities and are the shabbiest of the shabby. Just horrible. We were 4 and there were only 3 chairs at the table. When we went to the front desk to inquire about getting another, we were rebuffed and had to fight for it! A chair! They were absolutely not responsive and we were told "you were told there were no ammenities when you made your reservation". Not helpful or accomodating at all. The beds are a mattress on the floor. I would have left, but we decided to stay. Now the good part. The grounds are beautiful. Lots of gardens and walking paths through them. Nice variety and visual interest. (Also, lots of old people in RVs). The pools were great . There are 2 of them - the lower one is better - hotter. BTW, we were discouraged from using the lower pool by the staff for some reason, instead told to use the upper pool because it was "closer" to our cabin...but the upper pool was cold. Were we considered undesirable because we had dogs? Me thinks so. So all in all, we were extremely disappointed by the accomodations, but loved the grounds and pool. Next time, if there ever is a next time, we will stay in the lodge, which HAS to be better. On the way back to Bend, there is a beautiful scenic route which is a must do. There are hiking trails, scenic viewpoints, waterfalls, etc. It has everything Oregon has to offer.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:The spring pools, lovely manicured gardens.
  • Cons:Zero hospitality, horrible cabins
  • In a nutshell:Definitely come here & explore, but stay in a river front lodge room.
