Harrison Hot Springs Resort and Spa is a short 1.5 hour drive away from Vancouver and just 3 hours from Seattle. We often don’t think about coming here and don’t realize that is actually quite convenient. We were invited by Harrison Hot Springs Resort & Spa to spend a much needed mini honeymoon staycation! On our way over, we stopped by Bridal Veil Falls Provincial Park, east of Chilliwack in the small community of Rosedale.
Harrison Hot Springs Resort Hotel is located right beside Harrison Lake, Echo Island and Sasquatch Provincial Park. It is beautiful even during autumn months with BC coastal mountains in the back. Summer months, features fishing and nature tours, kayaks, bumper boats, and a waterpark along the beach.
Our hotel room on the 6th floor overlooked the lake is clean and comfortable. There is a nice balcony to watch the sun set. The rooms have had a face lift compared to the hallways which have seen better days. The room is complete with a speedy wireless internet, flat screen TV, desk and coffee maker. The washroom is clean with slate tiles and shallow standing tub. The hot shower had a good consistent temperature.
Harrison Hot Springs Resort and Spa is popular for their private hot-spring mineral pools. There are five pools in total with different temperatures. There are three outdoor pools which includes an adult only pool at 37C/98F; lap pool at 28C/83F which is great for a workout and to cool off. There are two indoor pools with temperatures 32C/90F and a hot tub at 38C/100F. In the warmer months, I can spend a full day just dipping and lounging poolside. Pools open 5 a.m. – 1 a.m and adults only after 10 pm.
Choose a session at the Healing Springs Spa before or after your swim. We enjoyed a romantic soak in the Private Healing Springs pool along nice couples deep tissue massage. I naturally fell asleep.
Rejuvenated and Refreshed after a nice mineral hot springs bath and massage we headed to The Copper Room to revisit the yester-years. Candlelight tables surround the dance floor and live entertainment from the Jones Boys playing old Elvis and Beatles oldies. The Copper Room have recently changed chefs and features local Fraser Valley focused menu.
Come back for a dip in the mineral hot springs after dinner and enjoy the outdoor pools until 1 am. In the morning, breakfast options are either The Lakeside Cafe for a breakfast buffet or Miss Margret’s for Starbucks.
Harrison Hot Springs Resort and Spa complete with yester-year charm and nostalgia. Summer months are family focused with cross generations. While the other months, you will find senior couples celebrating their youth and their 60th anniversary at The Copper Room. Harrison Hot Springs Resort and Spa is fit for all ages and is a great place to relax if you are planning a short staycation.
Harrison Hot Springs Resort hosts many Weddings and Banquets. Summer time offers the ideal setting for British Columbia weddings lake side. There is a garden alter next to the hot springs. In case of rain, they always prepare a backup plan. Banquet dinners start at $50 per person.
