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

What an amazing trip that climaxed with my stay at The Boars Head. I spent my day at the University of Virginia refreshing my memory of the Civil War and Thomas Jefferson, only to retire at a resort that was luxurious with home comforts. The Boars Head also has ties to UVA and shares a bit of history through it... More

I frequent the Boars Head Spa, as it is home to simply the best pedicurist in the world, Debra Brown. She is booked solid, but an appointment with her will not disappoint. She MAKES the Boars Head Spa.

My wife and I spent a day at the spa together. The friendly, knowledgable staff along with the calm music and relaxing atmosphere made the whole experience both relaxing and refreshing! Suzi, who is an Esthetician/Massage Therapist that has been there since 2001, took care of us. She was friendly, professional and gave both of us wonderful massages! The Spa... More

As a local resident and member of the Boars Head Sports Club I have enjoyed the experience of a Boars Head Inn Spa massage on many occasions. The prevailing atmosphere at the spa is one of calm, soothing, relaxation within a welcoming, spotless environment. On my most recent visit I had the good fortune to have Danielle as my therapist...

I had always wanted a day at the spa that included lunch and laying about. I got just that and cannot wait to go back. I got a massage, body scrub, facial, and pedicure. I felt like I was in heaven. Everyone was so nice and the reservation staff helped me organize my day so it would be the best... More

I've been going to the Boar's Head Spa for over two years. There is one reason. Suzi is a magician! I get the Herbal Hydration facial. But what I love is that Suzi asks how my skin has been and then customizes the facial to my sensitive skin needs. She takes a holistic approach to skin care offering ideas and... More

I booked an 80 minute massage for myself and an 80 minute pedicure that would include leg massage for my husband, so we would both be finished at the same time. When I called my husband from the locker room after my treatment he had been finished for over 35 minutes. So much for an 80 minute treatment for him.... More

We frequent the Boar's Head Spa a couple of times a year, going on a decade now. "Nevermore", as a local author once penned. I sent my wife there 10 days ago for a much needed massage. Since our last visit, not only have the prices gone up, but there is now a surcharge of about $25 for appointments on... More

Dear Mr. and Mrs. O, Thank you for being a frequent guest of our Spa and for your valued feedback. Please accept our heartfelt apology for your less than extraordinary spa experience!
