Named after the world famous springs first discovered by Julius Caesar in France, the virtually identical waters of Ukiah’s Vichy Springs surge forth from six miles deep within the earth. Featuring the only warm and naturally carbonated “Vichy” mineral baths in North America, the water is naturally warm and effervescent, filled with minerals and energy, and is renowned for its healing and restorative qualities. Opened in 1854, California Historical Landmark #980, Vichy Springs was a favorite retreat of writers Mark Twain, Robert Louis Stevenson and Jack London, and Presidents Ulysses S. Grant, Benjamin Harrison and Teddy Roosevelt. Vichy Springs Resort is the oldest continuously operated spa in California. Today, the Resort is restored and renovated to tastefully combine its natural and historic charm with modern comfort and convenience. Guest rooms and cottages are available.
