Upon enetering the Spa a unhappy customer and manager were arguing. The customer was suppose to have an appointment and no one was there to honor the appointment, this was after a hour wait. Things happene, but why argure with the client. Moving on I was given a key to my locker that contained a robe that was torn up... 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.

As a "graduate" of many fitness programs (including hospital physical rehab conditioning), I can honestly say the Pennie's individual fitness training is right up there. She did a very astute physical evaluation and then designed a customized cardio/balance and strength training program. I can already see results in physical tone, endurance and balance. Additionally my wife attends Pennie's cardio and... More

With the hotel being an overall disappointment, the Spa could make up for some of it. Their manager was amazing and so different to what we experienced elsewhere. The treatment was really good and justified the many awards they have hanging all around their reception. We also used the gym and pool which were top notch - kudos to the... More

Pennie offers a cardio and weight trying class 2 times per week that has helped me to tone my body and improve my balance. A group of five women meet on Monday and Wednesdays for the one hour class. Pennie varies the challenging exercises every class and keeps us both physically and mentally challenged. It is an excellent class that... More

Always concerned about therapists not getting deep enough to make a difference. No problem here, therapist was was willing to go a deep or shake as I wanted. Only had a 25 minute massage but it was well worth it.
