Three of us spent a whole day being pampered head to toe. The staff was wonderful helping us plan and schedule it all in advance and every service was great. It was a definite splurge but worth every penny. It is small, very intimate but with very fine technicians and a breathtaking setting on the golf course looking up to... More

When we drove up to the spa we were not sure about it. Once we got in, it was very nicly decorated. The massages were fantastic, probably the best we have ever had. Anthony and Ashley both customized the massages to our indivdual needs. We will go back again.

I have visited Waynesville several time in the past. This quaint little town seems to be peaceful but trendy, The atmosphere is similar to that of Asheville but without the crowd or the traffic. I adore it here. The mountains are beautiful and people are friendly. Today I found the diamond in this little gem mine and his name is... More

I made an appointment last minute since my trip was unplanned. I had a 90 minute massage with heat. Which was excellent! Anthony, my therapist, has amazing hands. i left feeling like new person. Exactly what I needed. My only complaint, the building was a little difficult to find. It could use better signage.

Thank you for your kind words about Anthony. He is truly gifted and a profound asset to the Balsam Spa. His dedication to healing and helping his clients is inspiring. I appreciate your comments about the difficulty finding our tucked away haven. We have added 3 signs this year to make it easier to find us, but we will add... More

While lodging at Waynesville Inn, a must treat included facial and reflexology services. The Balsam Spa at Waynesville is a hidden gem, offering first-rate services in the serenity of the mountains. No rushing, high-pressure sales, rushing you through your service(s). Molly and Anthony were fantastic and provided me a very relaxing afternoon. The Spa is on my "return visit" list... More

First, ask for Amanda and you can't go wrong. I speak as a therapist myself, and she's good. Knows many modalities, has a pleasant personality, and is intuitive, which I always appreciate, since you can't tell a therapist everything on an intake form and short interview. The spa itself is a separate building from the Waynesville Inn, down the hill... More

We had an awesome experience. We had facials , Swedish massage and balsam pedicure, so relaxing after a day of hiking. We sat on the porch in rocking chairs in our robes sipping tea wearing heated neck wraps overlooking the golf course and beautiful mountains ! What a great hidden treat!

My friends and I spent a rainy day at the Balsam Spa, and we loved it! Such a beautiful spa and the staff was really good! After our massages, we loved it so much that we actually went back for another treatment right after the first one. Would highly recommend this spa!

This was the perfect ending to a great vacation. After all the hiking, walking around town a spa treatment was just what we needed. They did a good job of helping us to relax.
