Enjoy Nature

To make the most of your spa day, there are a few additional items you may want to bring with you.
 
  • Bathing suit for pools and hot tubs. Bear Creek has both indoor and outdoor pools and hot tubs, as well as a private hot tub and lounge deck exclusively for spa guests. The Spa also has a steam room. If you forget a towel, sunscreen, or sunglasses, they are available for purchase at the hotel gift shop.
  • Active wear to utilize the walking path by the pond and around the resort. Since being in nature is very rejuvenating, you can enhance your experience with a $15 Mountain Activity Pass that allows you to use the hiking trails. Or you can book an overnight stay and utilize the pond activities for FREE.
  • Masks. Given these times of uncertainty, Bear Creek is still following all CDC and government official guidelines, which means all guests and staff must wear a mask while on the resort property (except while in pools and hot tubs).
