This was an incredible spa expirience. The route to get there was steep, narrow and winding, but the reward at the end of the road was well worth it.
The lobby area is welcoming and the spa services are varied and several couples packages are available. We chose the "Double the Fun" package for $265. This includes an hour in a private spa cabin that has a open wall that overlooks the woods, with options to go to the sauna and cold tub. The walk between the private cabin and the sauna is a bit far and up hill, but the private spa cabin is the greatest thing. It's a big hot tub and plenty hot. The day we were there it was cool and brisk, the sun was starting to set, and the leaves were at the end of the their colors. It was really nice to be there.
The second part of the package was a 50-minute massage in the main building. I requested a male and my wife requested a female masseuse. Both of these folks knew what they were doing, and we have a lot of experience is getting massages.
Overall, this was an spa expirience that we would definitely do again when we are in the Asheville area.
