First, let me say I love the property. Set on the side of a hill, it's a little paradise and because of the wood construction and small scale of the buildings it has an intimacy that I find most spas and spa hotels lack. The times I've been there I've found the staff laid-back and helpful. Case in point: the person who checks you in actually walks you to your room and explains things. Another example: at the spa, I wanted to show my mother the communal tub.Someone at the desk, in spite of being busy, actually gave her a 10-minute mini-tour, taking her into the most beautiful private soaking rooms. As far as accommodation, I've stayed in both High Moon and Rising Moon. Both are beautiful and you're provided with a simple granola breakfast and coffee and tea. Like the tubs in spa, even though all the rooms are close together on the property, they're situated so you're almost unaware of others. Great design, in that regard. I only have two complaints. The first is how they price. High Moon is a large one bedroom with a huge sitting room and full kitchen and 3 (!!!) private outdoor patios. This, for $269 plus tax (summer rate). To me, this is worth it, especially if you're sharing with someone else (the day bed in the sitting room is large and comfortable for sleeping and linens are provided, if you're sharing and you give up the bedroom). It's really a spectacular place, in my opinion. But their next category of rooms below this one, including Rising Moon where I stayed next, is so different---so much less in terms of the space---that the rate difference should be more than the mere $10 cheaper than it is. First, no full kitchen. In fact, no kitchen at all, just a mini-fridge and microwave. Second, just much smaller in general, and one small deck. Third, it's only separated from the road by a handful of yards and some trees. Now don't get me wrong, Rising Moon is a lovely room. It can also be shared easily because there's a daybed, the bathroom is wonderful and it is up to the standard of Ten Thousand Waves. it's just that in terms of what you're getting it feels like a good 20% less than their highest end rooms and yet the pricing is almost identical. My second complaint is one that Ten Thousand Waves can't do anything about and probably won't be an issue for many, depending on sensitivity or time of year visiting: there's a lot of road noise. Even though the road is small and winding, there's residential development past the spa, plus it's a popular bi-way for people heading out hiking and biking, etc, so it gets very busy. From all the rooms you can hear the rush of cars, but it is particularly strong in rooms closer to the road like Rising Moon. So if you're staying in summer, don't expect some perfectly quiet place. In the busy times of the day there will be plenty of cars zooming by. Since nights are beautiful and you'll want to sleep with your windows open, if you are sensitive to noise like I am, simply bring earplugs. Once it's dark the traffic dies down anyway. If you aren't sensitive to noise, or if you're visiting during a time of year when the windows are closed at night (I stayed once in winter and it was magical), this isn't a concern. But to sum up, great place, great people. Definitely go.
