Stayed at the Minerals Resort and Spa for a girl’s weekend away in May. Hotel itself seems like it could use a renovation. Our room smelled moldy and mildewy. Shower curtain was growing black stuff on the inside-disgusting.
Planned hiking activities were super. Really enjoyed the Appalachian Trail hike and a guided hike on resort property. Great exercise. Best to go with guide as there are bears at that time of year
Yoga was held in what looked like an old conference room, again smelling heavily of mold and mildew. My allergies got so bad that I could not complete the class. Instructor was good though.
The new Crystal Springs Spa called Reflections at the sister property was awesome. Just opened Feb. Services were great and amenities like the free champagne foot soak with truffles were perfect. The staff was a bit uptight though and there is almost no seating in the relaxation lounge-I sat on a side table in fact.
Ate at the at Crystal Tavern. Good food but HORRIBLY pricey for a "pub like” atmosphere so don't recommend. Better to go off property as there are several great "mom and Pop" restaurants with good Italian food or breakfast.
Overall, was a great weekend but the resort just could use some fixing up!
