The Northwest’s newest wellness experience is a perfect union of East and West. Combining Japanese onsen, or bathing culture, with the Scandinavian hot springs tradition, Tenzen Cabins & Springs sits on 100 acres with an underground aquifer of geothermal hot springs.
Located outside Stevenson, Washington, the minimalist resort consists of six stand-alone cabins, each with its own private soaking tub. “In Japan, many people go to hot springs to heal their bodies,” explains Nanae Yoshida, who along with her husband, Nick, are now stewards of the property, which was purchased by Nick’s father decades ago. “We hope guests leave fully recharged,” Nanae shares.
