Cold Mountain is located off of Route 60 west between Amherst and Buena Vista.It is moreorless due North of Long Mountain scenic spot. Cold Mountain used to have a motel nearby and there used to be an old house near the spring.
Buffalo Springs was a sulphur hot springs. At one time it was a major resort with a hotel and people came to use the springs. The old hotel still stands and is located on Buffalo Springs Turnpike which connects route 130 and route 60. Cold Mountain would be within 10 miles of this resort.
