Welcome to HavenUp.com
For the past 3 years I have been gathering information and touring hot springs properties in Central Idaho
Thank you for your interest in Haven Hot Springs!
My name is John Caccia. I live in Kethum, Idaho where I work as a jewelry maker,
art gallery owner and part-time river guide. I am also a long-time hot spring
aficionado, gardener, guitar picker and father of two sons.
with the intention to purchase and develop a recreation oriented Nature Resort and education/growing center.
This past year I have focused primarily on Haven Hot Springs,
which is located 5 miles east of Lowman
and 45 miles west of Stanley on Idaho's scenic Highway 21
Haven's existing "turn key" businesses include a 4 unit motel, a fully furnished cafe / beer bar,
nine full hook-up RV sites, a Sinclair gas station (recently inspected
and EPA approved), two rental
trailers, a small cold water spring, two cold water wells AND a high quality, 145 degree geothermal spring
that flows out of a hillside spring located on the upper northeastern
corner of this 14 acre property.
The spring out-flow is moderate and the recently adjudicated state water right allows for
approximately 20 gallons per minute. This part of Idaho is famous for it's elk herds,
scenic highways, geothermal activity, wilderness and white water.
Current owners, Fred
and Marla Lawson have built Haven after the original Haven was

Because of the above listed assets and Haven's rugged and remote,
yet easily accessible location
I consider Haven Hot Springs to be the best, by far, dollar value,
location and water quality of
all other hot spring properties currently on the market in Central Idaho and beyond...
in the Lowman area fire of 1990. They have operated Haven for
the past 15 years and are now ready
to sell-out and retire to their other interests. They have it
listed for $1.3 million.
This website was made to show what Haven currently looks like, share my vision
and attract like-thinking people who may be willing to particpate with me
in the purchase of Haven Hot Springs and the development of a:
Permaculture Design based Nature Resort,
Outdoor Recreation, Education and Growing Center.

A Nature Resort is where people can come to, camp, work, play, learn and connect with nature on a variety of levels.
A Wilderness School would facilitate guided activities and adventures in boating, climbing, and cycling as well as
offer programs & classes in everything from nature studies to wilderness survival and food preservation.
A Growing Center would include a greenhouse, commercial nursery, food and flower gardens,
fruit trees and cafe to feed our ourselves and the Nature Resort guests and visitors.
My mission is to help purchase Haven Hot Springs and work to develop
a family oriented Nature Resort and Growing Center...
