Subject: Is it time for a digital detox?


Wilbur Hot Springs opened to the public in 1865. Prior to that it was the healing and ceremonial grounds of the Patwin and Yoche de tribes of the Wintun, or Wintu, nation. The present Yoche de Tribe own and operate the Cache Creek Casino about 30 minutes south of Wilbur.

Ezekial Wilbur named the hot springs after himself, in 1865. In 1972 I had the privilege of becoming Wilbur’s caretaker, and have since retained that privilege for the last 47 years.


Do you ever feel guilty for being on your phone, or in front of screens too often?

In efforts to stay “plugged in” we have adopted distracting habits that minimize productivity and disconnect us from the life happening in front of us. Recent research shows that Social media appears to promote narcissism, smartphones could be causing insomnia, and screens seem to be making children less empathetic. These are troubling results, but they don’t have to define your life.

Wilbur offers you a place to disconnect from screens to reconnect to yourself with a digital detox. This is a period of time dedicated to refraining (or reducing) electronic devices such as smartphones or computers and an opportunity to reduce stress or focus on social interaction in the physical world.

“Wilbur is one of my favorite places to get some time to myself to relax and decompress. The flumes melt all my stresses away, and I also love the pool to cool off a bit. I haven't been brave enough to do the cold plunge, but it's on my bucket list! I also love exploring the property and seeing the wild ponies. There are some bikes around for the guests to use if they want, but I personally like taking walks. I came during a guest chef weekend, and the food was incredible! It's such a special place, and I recommend everyone to get up there!”
