Top of the Town is the best place to stay in Lava Hot Springs.

COVID-19 update: If you’re tired of being stuck in your own home and looking for a getaway, there’s plenty going on in Lava Hot Springs!

The state hot pools and outdoor Olympic swimming facility are scheduled to open June 13. I suspect tubing down the Portneuf River will be mostly unaffected.

The hot pools at Lava Hot Springs Inn & Spa are open to the public, while encouraging social distancing among the nine different pools. The pool wristband allows you to come and go all day, so you can leave if it gets too busy for your liking and come back later.

Restaurants are open and/or doing take-out, including the Royal Pizzeria, Blue Moon Bar & Grill, Riverwalk Thai, Chuckwagon and 78 Main. The Blue Moon and Royal even offer to-go orders on beer and mixed drinks! Top of the Town has ample dishes and silverware to take full advantage of some delicious take-out if the mood suits you. Mike’s Market is of course open, as well.

There are also a bunch of wonderful outdoor activities, including fishing, ATV riding, and hiking. We recently hiked up to the L on the mountain, and even our 7-year-old daughter had no trouble making the trek.

Whether you're coming with six people or 18, you'll enjoy a comfortable stay at Top of the Town. No other house in Lava offers six private bedrooms with queen beds, and our new queen sleeper sofas downstairs allow for even more people to get a good night's rest.

We have tons of amenities to make your experience amazing, including whole-house wifi, Netflix on two TVs, a full kitchen, barbecue and picnic area, complimentary dryer and more.

The house is just a short stroll from the heart of downtown Lava and less than a 10-minute walk from the world-famous hot pools and Portneuf River tubing starting point. You can check out all that Lava has to offer without even getting in your car.

Top of the Town is perfect for groups of all sizes. With room for as many as 18 people under one roof, this is the best place for your family reunion, girls’ weekend, book club getaway, multi-family gathering, group retreat and more.

We know you’ll love Lava Hot Springs and Top of the Town so much you’ll come back year after year!

More real beds in private bedrooms than any other house in Lava.

Top of the Town features seven queen beds in six private bedrooms, plus two quality queen sleeper sofas. The upstairs has three bedrooms with queens, while the downstairs has two queen bedrooms, a double-queen bedroom, and a common area with the two sleeper sofas.
