I got a spa day for my birthday and have never experienced one before. I chose a massage and facial. I loved the experience from the robes, hot tea, wonderful massage, invigorating facial, and hot shower. I would recommend this for anyone in need of a relaxing treat.

After spending 30 minutes on the phone to book 2 1-hr appointments for pedicures, we arrived to find that they had only scheduled one appointment. They told us that there was a 30 minute gap after the one hour appointment so they could give us 2 45 minute appointments. We agreed, but then they squeezed both of into the one... More

The atmosphere in the spa is very nice. I loved the waiting room. There was complimentary coffee and refreshing fruit infused water. The view of the lake was amazing and the light came in perfectly. Laura was an amazing masseuse. I had the hot stone massage that I highly recommend. The massage bed was heated! I would definitely return.
