Great experience for a skeptical dad.

I had never had a massage, and didn't know what to expect. This place was great. It is in the Lodge on Detroit Lake. I recommend it.

If you are planning your first visit here, you will be pleasantly surprised - even though you may feel "in over your head" as far as what to expect. The staff LISTENS to any concerns and ASSISTS to ensure all is memorable and enjoyable. DO NOT be afraid to discuss your true wants and questions. I personally wanted a very... More

My sisters and I scheduled massages, manicures and pedicures. The massages were awesome. The manicures and pedicures where ok. They had young girls doing the mani pedis, I feel they could have been trained better.

I absolutely love this place! I have been there several times over the years for manicures and pedicures with Michelle. She always does an amazing job and is great at making you feel like you are her number one client. All the other girls there are very pleasant and knowledgeable. I would recommend this place to anyone.

When asking about other nail salons in the area, the receptionist proceeded to tell me that "Um...well..there are some across town by the Vietnamese people..." Not sure why she had to single them out by their ethnicity but it was offensive and rude. I went there twice and on both times, the receptionist tried to charge me wrong.

My husband buys gift certificates for us to go together. The guys take care of the girls and it is our time together. Get there early to take advantage of the facility and rain shower. They have great robes. They are very professional.

This is the best place I've been to in this area, to get a massage and facial. You can take a steam shower, do your hair, etc., when you're done.

The massage was just the way I like it. She really worked on the knots in my shoulders. Also had a facial which was very relaxing and made my skin feel wonderfully soft. The surroundings are very pleasing and relaxing. If I didn't live 200 miles away, I would be there all the time!
