Joyful Journey, our 36th Anniversary

 Joyful Journey is a spa and hot springs in Villa Grove Colorado.  For our 36th anniversary we decided to get away, but stay somewhat close to home.  Don and I had always talked about staying here.  We have visited the pools for an afternoon, but never stayed overnight.  This time we booked a room. 

It was lovely to get away to peace and quiet to regenerate.  There are no TVs and the spa is out in the country but right of of Hwy 17.  This makes it easy to find.  The view all around is of the majestic Sangre de Cristo mountains. You can find more about it by going to .

The ladies that served us were very kind.  They knew it was our 36th anniversary so they made up a little gift basket with oils and soap stuff they sell in the spa.  They try to use natural products which is nice.  We also like the fact that there is no nude bathing.  The pools are clean and managed well.  There is a "cold" breakfast in the morning with granola, yogurt, hard boiled eggs, bagels, juice, coffee and teas, and breads. 

This isn't what some would call a swanky place, but it's adequate for those who don't want to spend too much and still feel relaxed.  We enjoyed ourselves.

Rather frosty, but the pools are very warm!
