The resort was clean, the staff friendly and helpful. The facilities were comfortable and luxurious. We woke to snow in late April and had a most wonderful day enjoying the spa and grounds. Cooking class was informative and fun. Looking forward to returning.

I did not have massage service, but thoroughly enjoyed using the indoor heated pool, out door hot tub and gym. These services were included with our hotel stay.

The waiting room is like an old school smoking lounge. Nice lockers, they provide robe and slippers, tv etc. There is one for men, another for women. The service itself is also good. 2nd trip..plan on another when in the area.

Had a honey lavender body treatment and it was absolutely amazing! Catherine was very good about explaining everything and listened to any questions or concerns I had. I was able to just relax and enjoy! I can't recommend the spa enough!

This was my first massage, but I had no complaints. The manicurist listened to my problems with my nails and spent extra time, with preventative measures. We relaxed in the Women's Lounge, after, and ordered lunch. Awonderful experience!!
