Historic Surroundings

Known for its natural hot springs, Murrieta Hot Springs was once a health spa and resort owned by Fritz Guenther. Guenther, a German immigrant, moved to New York with his brother after escaping the Franco-Prussian War. In the year 1902, after moving cross-country, Guenther purchased Murrieta Hot Springs. In the following 30 years, the Guenther family developed the Hot Springs into the ideal world-class resort and spa. In the mid-1900’s, Guenther sold Murrieta Hot Springs. Calvary Chapel of Costa Mesa purchased the resort in 1995. Chuck Smith, founder of Calvary Chapel, led a huge restoration project. Wanting to protect and maintain the historicity of the facility, they salvaged as much of the grounds as possible. Murrieta Hot Springs Christian Conference Center has been up and running for almost twenty years now “refreshing the people of God” by offering an oasis for Christians in the greater Southern California area and beyond. The peaceful atmosphere allows for those who come to forget about their cares and retreat with the Lord.
