I'm a massage therapist and don't usually go to a spa to get a massage because of the higher prices. Jamie was worth every penny. She has perfect pressure and definitely knows what she is doing. I have had hundreds of massages and this one fell in the top 10 for sure. I wish she lived closer so I could... More

Had a deep tissue massage and foot reflexology session with Suzanne. Suzanne did a very nice job, was informative and delightful. Would recommend Suzanne. The spa itself is O.K. but not as indulgent as others I have been too. The changing area works hard to include a little of everything including lockers, sinks, a toilet behind a screen which I...

i booked a couples massage for my husband and me for our anniversary. It was the best message i have ever had and my husband agreed. They take notes about each of your worry spots and treat you as individuals. It was hour and we both agreed it had felt so much longer. They used scented oils and hot towels... More

We booked two one hour massages. We were greeted by a friendly receptionist, water and some light snacks. We were taken back to our room on time by very friendly and knowledgeable masseuses. The masseuse focused exactly on the areas that I asked him to focus on--neck, back and shoulders. The champagne and chocolates after the massage was a nice... More

Took my boyfriend on a surprise overnight trip to Galena for a milestone birthday. One of his surprises was a trip to this day spa for his first ever massage. He looked reluctant going in but relaxed and in total awe leaving after his session. We will be back! And he can't stop talking about his experience.

Just had an AMAZING hot stone couples massage at the Galena Day Spa. We both agree, this was the best massage we've ever had. Champagne and chocolates at the conclusion of the massage was a nice treat (though the 'relaxation room' leaves a little to be desired). Thanks Mary and Jerry for a relaxing afternoon! We can't wait to come... More

I was recently married at the Irish Cottage Boutique Hotel and utilized the Galena Day Spa for many services for myself and my bridal party/guests. We started our morning with massages, facials, and pedicures done in the gorgeous, well decorated spa. We also had our hair and make-up done up in our hotel suite in the afternoon. The scheduling of... More

We were staying at the Irish Cottage hotel and booked services at the in house spa. We had three different services with Mary (facial) Jerry (hot stone massage) and Lauralee (deep tissue) which were all fabulous! These therapists were professional and extremely good at their specialities. However, once the massages were done and we were having our champagne and chocolates,... More

I needed my hair and makeup done on my wedding day, but I was worried about being charged an outrageous fee to do my hair because it was for a "wedding." When I booked, I explained that I had a pixie cut (my hair is 2 inches long) and they gave me a really reasonable rate. Amanda did my hair... More
