Things to see and do near the School House Inn
Idaho is a natural gem. Lava Hot Springs, Idaho is a year-round resort community located in a picturesque mountain setting centered between Salt Lake City, Utah and Yellowstone National Park. Located just minutes from the School House Inn, you will have no problem finding fun in this town!


Lava Hot Springs
The World-Famous Lava Hot Mineral Springs Bubbling out of natural underground springs, the hot water is laden with Minerals, but has no sulfur and therefore no bad odor.  Over 3 million gallons a day course through the springs and are diverted into the Portneuf River keeping the springs ever changing and clean. The spring's temperatures range from approximately 102F to 110F degrees. On cold winter nights, when the steam of the hot springs reduces visibility to a few feet, people of all ages talk and play in perceived anonymity.
