We spent two days being pampered. We had several massages, exfoliating body scrubs and facials and a mani pedi. The staff was wonderfully capable and did not talk unless we initiated the conversation. The potions they used on us made us glow and feel soft and the wonderful aromas made us feel happy. We stayed in the little blue house... More

I had the aging facial--I'm getting up there in years. My face feels and looks great after all the lotions and potions that were applied. The facial included hand massage, foot massage and head massage. I was told there would be a wax dip for the hands but that was overlooked. Overall it was really nice and I felt it... More

I had a wonderful experience at the Boar's Head Spa. I had the Signature Monticello Garden Massage and it certainly delivered on its promise for complete relaxation. Make sure to come half an hour before your scheduled treatment so you can enjoy the steam shower and luxuriate in the treatment room!

The spa at Boars Head is extremely nice. I received a therapeutic massage from Mary on a quiet fall afternoon. The facilities are well maintained and the staff is very cordial and professional. It's on the expensive side of the spa experience but typical for a resort setting I would guess

The staff could not be nicer. The facility was clean and cozy, with everything you might need or want provided. My masseuse had wonderful hands, soft voice and found every aching muscle. She took her time, was not overly talkative - very restful. My only regret, the time went too fast and I had 80 minutes of this luxury. Went... More
