Response from front desk staff after complaining about massage says it all: "Maybe you should write a review on TripAdvisor and something will be done about the situation." The massage therapist seemed very nice and indicated that she had years of experience though the pressure was so inconsistent, the 80 minute massage lacked symmetry (jumping around from area to area...

WOW! After coming to the Boar's Head Inn and Spa to relax after our daughter's wedding, we were completely rejuvenated. Juleigh was my massage therapist and gave the most relaxing, yet stimulating Apple / Pear scrub and hot stone massage!! My husband had the 80 minute sports massage. OOOH LA LA! The atmosphere is lovely, restful, quiet, yet not pretentious.... More

Juleigh gave me an upper body deep tissue massage and it was AMAZING. She had exactly the right blend of deep pressure and relaxing touch. I also loved the steam room. The entire staff was welcoming and the space is relaxing.

Don't know the any travelers at this point. I am happy with the services I receive at the spa and the bistro. I also enjoy the pool in the summer time. Thank you

This spa was amazing. The only problem is that there is only a sauna in the men's room. Other than that it is perfect!

We spent two days being pampered. We had several massages, exfoliating body scrubs and facials and a mani pedi. The staff was wonderfully capable and did not talk unless we initiated the conversation. The potions they used on us made us glow and feel soft and the wonderful aromas made us feel happy. We stayed in the little blue house... More

I had the aging facial--I'm getting up there in years. My face feels and looks great after all the lotions and potions that were applied. The facial included hand massage, foot massage and head massage. I was told there would be a wax dip for the hands but that was overlooked. Overall it was really nice and I felt it... More

I had a wonderful experience at the Boar's Head Spa. I had the Signature Monticello Garden Massage and it certainly delivered on its promise for complete relaxation. Make sure to come half an hour before your scheduled treatment so you can enjoy the steam shower and luxuriate in the treatment room!

Dear Dragonesse, Thank you for your wonderful TripAdvisor post and your tip to come early and enjoy the steam shower and the relaxation room! Have you tried the Signature Monticello Full Body Facial...another magnificent treatment for "re-creation." Thank you for choosing The Spa at Boar's Head. More

The spa at Boars Head is extremely nice. I received a therapeutic massage from Mary on a quiet fall afternoon. The facilities are well maintained and the staff is very cordial and professional. It's on the expensive side of the spa experience but typical for a resort setting I would guess
