Hot Springs is a friendly community of roughly 600 inhabitants.

Maybe you've had a long day driving, a full day of vacationing, or just want to get away for a weekend of soothing relief from those nagging aches and pains that come from the stresses of modern life. As a full service community, Hot Springs is the perfect spot to enjoy healthy relaxation in a peaceful environment.

Attractions
Hot Mineral Springs
The healing waters of Hot Springs have drawn people from as far away as Finland and Taiwan, to a leisurely and peaceful vacation in Montana's western mountains. Many revisit on a regular basis, enjoying the benefits and relief that the natural hot mineral waters bring in the treatment of arthritis, skin diseases, rheumatism, stomach ulcers, high blood pressure and many other kinds of ailments. There are several privately owned facilities that offer indoor bathing and hot tubs, including the Symes Hotel, the Hot Springs Spa, and Wild Horse Hot Springs. You will also find a new outdoor hot mineral water swimming pool at the Symes Hotel.

National Bison Range

Located in western Montana, the Range protects one of the most important of the remaining herds of American bison or buffalo. Within these lands of the beautiful Flathead Valley, in the "Land of the Shining Mountains," from 300 to 500 of the great shaggy animals roam over nearly 19,000 acres of grassland and park-like patches of timber. 406.644.2211

St. Ignatius Mission Church
Built in the early 1890s, this Catholic Church is unique because its walls and ceilings have 61 original paintings by Brother Joseph Carignano, S.J. on them. The Mission Mountain Range is a beautiful backdrop of scenery behind the Mission Church. The church is located on the Flathead Indian Reservation. We have two very special paintings of the Salish Lord and Lord's mother (in Native American form) that are located in the back of the Mission. Next to the Mission, we have a museum and gift shop that displays Mission and Indian artifacts and sells religious items. We also have the log home which was the original Sisters' residence when they first arrived. 406.745.2768
