10 Hot Tubs for Your Travel Bucket List
Our luxury vacation homes in destinations across the country have some amazing amenities. From high-altitude oxygen pumping systems to multi-story glass walls and secret bookcase doors, we’ve seen it all. However, even amid all these one-of-a-kind features, there’s still one that remains a steadfast guest favorite: the hot tub.
If you’re looking for a winter warm-up this season, check out our list of the 10 best hot tubs in our portfolio of beautiful vacation homes. These range from infinity pools set high above the hills of Santa Barbara to underground grottos fed by natural hot springs, and everything in between. So take a look through, and let the hot tubs be your guide as you choose where to get away this winter.
The hot tub at Jackson Hole's Grand Outlook is the stuff of dreams, and has helped the home gain international recognition as one of the world's "top luxe winter escapes." InvitedHome is thrilled to offer this hilltop haven to guests looking for an unforgettable Jackson Hole experience. The home itself is set on five acres of rolling hills and boasts exquisite views of the venerable Teton mountains - and some of the best vistas are from the comfort of this private hot tub. Inside Grand Outlook, 5 bedrooms sleep 10 people spread throughout 3 stories. For skiing as luxurious as this home, head to the nearby Amangani resort, or explore the town of Jackson in the valley below.
In Florida's famed Rosemary Beach, there’s one hot tub that sits above the rest. Situated on the outdoor deck of Antigua Penthouse is a private hot tub from which you can peer over the roofs of other 30a beach homes and to the gorgeous turquoise waters of the Gulf. It’s a cozy space with seating for four, creating a romantic vibe high above Rosemary Beach. This home is also ideally situated within walking distance from everything Rosemary Beach has to offer, including the sparkling waters and sugar-white sand that helped make the Emerald Coast so famous.
North Lake Tahoe's Stella Nova has garnered rave reviews for its unbeatable ski-in, ski-out access, but that shouldn't overshadow its perfectly placed hot tub. Set on the back deck just feet from a blue run, you can hop in seconds after finishing for the day. Watch as the skiers whoosh by, and look out over the entire mountain range beyond. It's the perfect way to end a day of skiing on one of North Lake Tahoe's best ski resorts.
Everything about this Beaver Creek vacation home exudes top-of-the-line luxury and elegance, and that clearly extends to the outdoor hot tub. Built into the ground and enveloped by large slabs of smooth stone, you’ll be secluded in the lush fairytale woods that surround the home. There’s also a manmade waterfall built from weathered and rounded stones that plunges into the hot tub, pumping in the same heated water and aerating it all the while. There's also a huge, heated outdoor deck that looks over the hills that fill Vail Valley, and inside there's a stately study, an in-home theater with plush, overstuffed seating, and a living area that looks like a grand ski lodge.
A stay at Cabin on the Ridge means you’ll join the exclusive ranks of those who have luxuriated in a hot tub well above 10,000 feet. Set halfway up the Telluride Ski Resort, you’ll be sheltered from any high winds and snowfall without losing the amazing views, thanks to the panel of floor-to-ceiling windows that look out over the valley. This cabin sits at 10,500 feet, but to help guests acclimate, there's an air filtration system that pumps pure oxygen into the bedrooms, creating an atmosphere akin to an elevation of 6,000 feet.
It’s hard to imagine a more luxurious hot tub than the one you’ll find in Santa Barbara’s Tuscan Charm. Set next to a true infinity pool high in the hills of Montecito, you’ll have views of Santa Barbara below, the Pacific beyond that, and the rolling peaks in the distance. Built in a Mediterranean style, every room is an exemplary show of opulence. In the backyard where the hot tub is located, lounge chairs and tables have an equally stunning view.
With a private hot tub in the cozy Mountain Village community of Telluride, you’ll have views directly to the slopes from the swirling waters of your deckside spa in Heritage Crossing Penthouse. There’s a communal, resort feel, but the wall and mountain-oriented back deck give you the privacy you’re looking for in a Telluride vacation rental.
Head down below this Telluride estate for an unforgettable surprise. Here, in a manmade grotto beneath the home, sits an alluring hot tub fed completely by a natural hot spring and lit green by underwater lights. It’s perhaps the most unique way to warm up after a hard day of skiing or riding in any of our homes, and ensures an experience you and your family or friends will never forget. Once you've seen this home, though, you'll see that this is perfectly fitting. Soak in an antique wooden tub, light a fire in the outdoor pit, try a wine in your private cellar, or watch a movie in your own home theater. Click here to take a full tour of this incredible mountain estate.
The hot tub at Winding Creek Estate is set amid the home's beautiful, sprawling backyard. Minutes from the Squaw Valley Ski Resort, you can warm up after experiencing what many regard as North Lake's best skiing - especially for advanced terrain. Once you're soaking in this large tub, you'll have views of the immaculate home behind you, and the steep drop to the namesake creek below. Listen to the flowing river down the ridge and set your eyes to the stars above, and you'll see why this is one our most memorable hot tubs.
Unbeatable Telluride views and plenty of space to soak ensure Dancing Bear's hot tub a place on our list. Eight people can comfortably fit inside with a range of jetted seats and reclined bench options. But what really steals the show here is the view: The rugged peaks and ridges of the southern Colorado Rockies in the distance, and the gently rolling hills and scattered pine and aspen trees just before you. After a day of world-class skiing, this is the ultimate way to rejuvenate. This home also features an amazing billiards room with pool and shuffleboard, ski-in, ski-out access to Telluride Resort, an indoor bar, and several decks with views as good as from the hot tub.
