Mother Daughter Retreat
I took my mom here for a little bonding time. It was fabulous. It was the most comfortable and relaxing experience. We did the massage, facial and lunch. We were greeted as old friends and even by the adorable little dog. The massage was in a room with a lot of natural light so it was almost like getting a massage on a nice sunny day. So relaxing. The massage was one of the best that I have ever had. The facial left my skin feeling like new. The lunch we shared was delicious and so relaxing on the sun porch. The overall experience was beyond amazing. I can't wait to go back for another massage!

The perfect mini vacation!
My bridesmaids picked this venue for our Girl's Day and we couldn't have been more pleased. Terri and Jill gave gave THE BEST massages (I'm a massage therapist myself so I'm very picky!!), and they both made us all feel like queens for the day. The atmosphere is warm, inviting, and gorgeous. The perfect place to unwind.

Girls Spa Day
Myself, as well as four other friends of mine had a great pampering day at Les-Mini Vacances this past weekend! We planned this day as a "bachlorette" for our friend, who is getting married in June. She did not want a typical night out type of bachlorette - she is more into relaxation and pampering. When I came across this spa online, I saw nothing but amazing reviews, so I took a leap of faith and booked it. It could not have been better! Terri is amazing. Jill was fantastic as well! We had such a great time. The spa is actually Terri's cute cottage home, and it feels as if it is your own for the day! Very unique. The bride is actually a massage therapist herself and VERY picky about massages...When she walked out of the room from her massage with Terri, she said it was the best massage she has EVER had. The attention to detail throughout the day was incredible. The lunch was amazing and we never felt rushed to leave! This spa is truly one of a kind and you feel like a guest in Terri's home - unlike many spas and salons where you feel like you're just "the next appointment", you will be the center of attention here and feel like its all about you! We all deserve that once and a while :o) We can't wait to return!

Much Needed Emergency Spa Visit!
After a stressful few weeks at work, I called Les Mini Vacances and booked the 1/2 day package for me & my husband. I contacted Terri multiple times prior to my visit & she was always very accomodating and pleasant. Terri's home is incredible & inviting. Very peaceful setting, relaxing decor, beautiful fireplace---she truly makes you feel like it's your home right down to being greeted by her cute dog. I was initially a bit reluctant as the spa menu is not as extensive as commercial places--rest assured the treatments were among the best we've had! Jill has amazing hands and the massage was worth every penny! The facial included a paraffin wax treatment which was extremely hydrating and relaxing (we both dozed off at some point during this amazing facial). The lunch has to be ordered in advance--we had the Salmon & the Sole--both of which were excellent. Each comes with salad, green tea with honey, herbal tea, & sorbet (we both had the grapefruit flavor & it was "Wow"). We both left feeling like new again. This was a truly exceptional experience, unlike any other. Thank you Terri & Jill!

Most Relaxing Day
A friend and I recently enjoyed facials and lunch at Les Mini Vacances. It was a wonderful, relaxing day. While my friend had her facial, I sat and read by the fire. After my fantastic facial, we had a delicious lunch. We hadn't seen each other in a while so we lingered a long time over lunch. Teri, the owner, never made us feel like we were overstaying our welcome. It was a great experience and I'll definitely go back.

I was at Les-Mini Vacances yesterday to celebrate my birthday. I decided to treat myself to the full package...facial, massage, and spa lunch. The spa itself is a beautifully decorated home and is nothing like a typical commercial establishment. I was greeted with the sound and smell of a crackling fire and softly scented candles. The facial was relaxing and left my skin feeling softer than it has been in years. The massage was comfortable and left me feeling very mellow. The lunch (grilled chicken Caesar, lemon sorbet, and iced green tea flavored with honey) was delicious and served in a lovely conservatory. Terri, the owner, is warm and welcoming and seems more "old friend" than business owner. A tranquil day that will definitely be repeated in the near future. Two thumbs up and highly recommended!!

A Wonderful Experience
Brought my mom here for her birthday amd everything went perfectly. I wasnt sure what to expect because the website doesnt give a whole lot of info, but when we got there I knew I made the right decision. This place (which is really a gorgeously decorated house) is the complete opposite of a commercial spa, but you still get the spa treatment. We did the half day package: massage, facial and lunch. The services were excellent and not at all rushed. The lunch was fresh and delicious - right down to the pink grapefruit sorbet for dessert. They even put a candle in my moms sorbet for her birthday. Terri and Helen are genuinely nice people who love what they do. Highly recommend!!

Recharge with a friend
Peaceful, professional and so comfortable. The massage and facial were centered around relaxation. I appreciated that there was no selling of any product or service. You just go and experience what Terri has to offer. It was a treat. I recommend the Salmon for lunch.

Girls Day Out
What a great place to spend a day being pampered with a friend. Great setting, being able to see the sky while being massaged and I got to catch up with my friend while doing the half day package. Having the place to ourselves made it private and relaxing.
January 22, 2013
Unexpected in a great way
I had expected the standard spa atmosphere, with some woman greeting you crisply behind a desk before being ushered into nondescript rooms. Not even close! This was a private and inviting atmosphere, and I felt welcomed like an old friend the minute I arrived. The massage by Helene was wonderful, the facial by Terri was sooo relaxing, and lunch was surprisingly fantastic. I would love to make this a seasonal visit. Worth every penny!

A slice of paradise
This spa really does make you feel as if you have gotten away to a mountain resort, even if you only have a few hours. The facilities are beautiful and Terri, the owner is so warm and welcoming. I highly recommend this spa!

A truly wonderful experience!
With a few horror stories from past experiences, I was a bit apprehensive about a massage. My friend who gave me the gift certificate convinced me that I would not be disappointed. She was correct. The spa is a relaxing, beautiful space and Terry could not have been more hospitable. The massage was the most relaxing experience that I've had in a while and the lunch was terrific. I look forward to returning for another beautiful experience at Les-Mini Vacances!

Penn State Grad!
I promised my daughter a spa day when she graduated college this year. With our schedules and many unfortunate circumstances, we finally were able to make the appt! It was SO worth the wait! I dont remember the last time I was so relaxed. I did doze off during both the massage and the facial sessions! I can't wait to go again and this time will do the lunch they offer, the surroundings are so peaceful.

Definitely the most charming and intimate spa setting I've enjoyed. The quality of the massage treatment and the delicious lunch was superb. Terri made me feel so relaxed and welcomed. I've already booked my next appointment!

Terri and Helene were wonderful.The massage was superb, as was the lunch. Two hours of complete relaxation. We are already planning our next visit. Carol H.

A Peaceful Retreat in Central NJ
Brought my Mom for a mother daughter day. We both had facials, massages and lunch. It was a beautiful, warm, tranquil, welcoming environment from start to finish. The cozy fire, bright sunroom and friendly staff dispelled winter's gloom. Excellent massage by Helene-gentle, relaxing, focused on tense spots. Terri's facial left us both looking and feeling 10 years younger. We had sole, salmon, salad, mango sherbet for lunch-delcious! And what a relief that they did not try to sell me any products. I've only been to large spas before and I don't think I'll ever go back to the large ones. Don't plan to bring a group-I think it can accommodate only two people at a time. It was what a spa should be-a perfect few hours of leaving life's stresses at the door while being cared for by two peaceful, kind and capable professionals.

Felt like a queen!
My son gave me a gift certificate for the Stone Massage and Lunch. It was a wonderful experience-the massage was great, the lunch delicious, the atmosphere soothing. I really did feel like a queen for a day! I highly recommend this spa and will come back again.
December 29, 2011
Thank you, made our day
My wife and I choose this SPA because of great reviews and we definitely was not disappointed. This is not like usual commercial SPA. Very cozy and warm environment, no other people and you get personal attention. Massage was wonderful, we had great lunch over there. Good experience all around. Certainly will visit again.
December 28, 2011
Oh my, walking in the door to a warm peaceful atmosphere, was just the begining of my experience. Terri was very welcoming and makes you feel like a cherished guest. The massage and facial were absolutely wonderful. Not only did my face feel smoother, but my skin looked brighter. This was the nicest birthday gift I ever had. I will be back soon! Thank you Terri Joni K

A Great Way to Start a Great Day!
While looking for a new place to try for a massage I came across the reviews for Les-Mini Vacances Day Spa...they intrigued my boyfriend and I so we set up appointments to start our weekend off in a relaxing way. Let me tell you, all of the reviews are true! Our massages were delightful - everything about our visit was! Terri provides a relaxing atmosphere right down to a warm fire and her pup, Zoe, happily greeting you. My neck and back feel great and you will too once you've visited Les-Mini Vacances Day Spa!

A new woman
I walked into the Les Mini Vacances Day Spa an overly stressed working mother of two. I walked out a rejuvenated and peaceful woman...after only a two hour visit. The massage was deep and effective, while almost lulling me to sleep. The facial was relaxing and I left glowing. Thank you!

I needed a vacation, but only had a day.....
This is truly a wonderful place. A perfect change from the commercial spa feel. Terry's attention to detail is outstanding, from the warm, relaxing environment thru to the treatment. It was a great way to de-stress. A vacation is an afternoon. Ahhh. Thanks Terry.

Can't wait to go back!
This was the perfect place to get a spa treatment. The surroundings were peaceful, warm, and inviting, and the treatment was fantastic. I can't wait to go back and bring friends!

A perfect retreat from reality!
I had an absolutely fabulous experience at Les Mini Vacances day spa. It was everything I had hoped for. As someone who works full time and has two preschoolers under the age of six, I desperately needed an escape and alone time. Terri greeted me with open arms and was truly happy to have me there. The entire setting is perfect for relaxing. I had a massage, facial and lunch and everything was wonderful. Terri is very professional and the most gracious of hosts. Her treatments were great - her experience shows. She is truly delightful. Lunch was perfect and the ability to sit, relax and read by myself for some time was truly rejuvenating. She put a lot of thought into the unique setting of a spa in a house. The personal touches made it for me. No noise and "corporate feel" as many other spas and no push on products like I've previously experienced. Her only objective is to serve and rejuvenate you. I can't wait to go back and share the experience with friends. Although, I really did love my "me time"!

Thank you for an amazing experience
I just visited Les-Mini Vacances to use a gift certificate I'd received for a massage, facial and lunch. The experience was flawless! From driving over a small wooden bridge into the parking area, to the gardens, Terri's (the owner) small dog Zoe greeting you (only if you give consent!), to a stunning home/spa area - every detail came together perfectly. The massage and facial were both fantastic, very relaxing. Terri's years of experience were evident throughout both treatments - relaxing away years of built of stress and tension. Lunch was great. The selections provided a great variety and everything was very fresh - down to the iced green tea with honey and mint that Terri brewed fresh that day. I couldn't have asked for a better day and look forward to returning and sharing this fantastic place with friends and family.

My sister-in-law and I visited the spa and enjoyed it immensely. The massage was great and the people fabulous. We definitely plan to go back and bring some more relatives with us. Thanks for a great experience.
February 11, 2011
My girlfriend and I visited Les Mini Vacances yesterday and had the most amazing and deligthful experience! The setting is idylic...even in the dead of winter! The house is cozy and inviting and extraordinarily, eclectically designed by Terri, the owner! The services were 5 star! We both had massage and armomatherapy facial. Both were wonderful and expertly admisintered. Terry and her staff are lovely people who are experts at what they do...and enjoy it. I loved every minute! And will be back soon..and often!

Absolute Relaxing Experience
I took one of my friends from IN to Les_mini Vacances, and we both had the best relaxing time. Terri and Helena are so good, and caring. I felt like they are long known friends, though that was our first visit. They both took their time to provide the most comfortable service. The lunch was fresh and delicious. I look forward to going there again in the near future.
August 27, 2010
I visited Les Mini Vacances yesterday for the first time. Terri is absolutely lovely, the spa is elegant and tastefully designed, the massage was first-rate. I will definitely return and I highly recommend Les Mini Vacances!

A Perfect Day!
My sister took my to Les-Mini Vacances for my birthday this week and I couldn't have asked for anything more. Everything was fantastic from the moment we pulled into the driveway. The house and gardens are spectacular. Everything is immaculate and so tastefully done. Terri is a joy and made us feel right at home - in fact we hated to leave! Our massages were wonderful and so relaxing and lunch in the solarium was fantastic. I still can't get over the ice bowls that the sorbet was served in. We definitely plan to return - it was by far the best spa experience I've ever had. Thank you Terri!
August 18, 2010
Even better than hoped for...
My sister and I were just thrilled by our spa experience. The ambiance was so charming, we didn't want to leave. Les Mini Vacances makes most other spas seem like doctor's offices in comparison. The lunch and relaxation time were as wonderful as the massage. Highly recommended.

A True "Vacances"
This spa is true to its name because you really do feel like you're on vacation. There is no detail spared in this serene, welcoming establishment. I was pleasantly greeted by Terri who makes you feel at home and it was as if we'd known each other for years. The spa is something out of Better Homes and Gardens. The services were extremely relaxing and the lunch - delicious! If you like a personal touch, want to feel secluded and pampered and want to get away from it all then this is the place for you. At no other spa have I received such excellent service with such an inviting atmosphere.
Maral Thanks so much for your wonderful review with spafinders Hope to see you again soon! Terri

Felt like a world away
We celebrated my sister's 40th birthday at Les-Mini Vacances and had a wonderful day. I felt like I had traveled to a different world, when we weren't far from home. Everything was wonderful - great massages from Terri and Helen, an amazing lunch and a cozy and warm environment to unwind. The ice bowls for the sorbet dessert still have us talking. I would definitely recommend Les-Mini Vacances to friends or anyone looking for something that feels like you went far away with the convenience of being near home!
Joanna Thanks so much for the wonderful review!! Hope to see you again soon! Good health and happiness Always! Terri Les-Mini Vacances Day Spa

Relaxing Mini Vacation!
I came to Les Mini Vacances as a girls day with two friends. My friend had come upon this spa online, and read the positive reviews, so we thought it sounded great! Not only did we enjoy this spa, but we plan on coming back with friends and family. This was one of the best massages I've ever had. I find myself to be rather particular with massages, but this was a perfect experience! The atmostphere is so warm and cozy, making me feel as much on vacation as it could, while also feeling completely comfortable and relaxed. Definitely recommend this spa to anyone!
April 4, 2010
GREAT Spa Experience!
Les-Mini Vacances is unlike any spa I have ever been to. As the name indicates, you truly feel like you are on a little vacation anywhere but New Jersey. The Spa is actually the owners home and it's absolutely adorable and very charming. They even have the cutest little dog who welcomes you as you enter ;-) As a result, you sort of feel like you are visiting an old friend rather than at a sterile spa. The women were so sweet, we all talked like old friends, the owner kindly offered my friends complimentary sorbet while they waited for me to have my massage and we actually all hugged when we left! My massage was fantastic & relaxing (and I am pretty particular) and my friends loved their facials and massages as well. If you are looking for fantastic service and a relaxing afternoon, I highly recommend Les-mini Vacances! We are definitely planning to go back this summer.
April 2, 2010
found this experience based on the reviews and was not disappointed! the setting makes me feel like im in a resort in the mountains, not in someones home in nj! terri was very welcoming and gave me a wonderful hot stone massage, followed by a delicious lunch! i would definitely recommend this for a girls day, couples or just to do something alone for yourself!
February 14, 2010
What an amazing find! Feels like a mountain retreat hundreds of miles away from civilization, when it's a mere 10-minute drive away from home. Awesome massage and a truly lovely, relaxing atmosphere. I look forward to my next visit!

A Wonderful Mini Retreat
Very friendly service, location and a lovely lunch made for a very memorable day spa experience. While most spas feel like hair salons with extra services, Les Mini Vacances Day Spa really felt like a VACATION at a beautiful Inn. Can't wait to visit again!

Relaxation in a beautiful setting!
My girlfriend and I loved our 1/2 day spa experience here! The one hour facial and one hour massage were excellent. We were able to relax together afterwards - still in our plush robes - and enjoy some time outside on the lounge chairs in the peaceful garden before we were taken back inside for a delicious lunch. It was truly a mini vacation and I will most definitely be back!
January 22, 2009

Best Getway Experience
My girlfriend and I decided to do a spa day together and we choose this spa from SpaFinder.com. We were so impressed with the spa experience and the massage and facial were amazing. It is such a relaxing atmosphere, where you feel totally comfortable. They don't rush you in between sessions and you get to relax outside in the beautiful gardens where they serve you ice water with lemon. After the massage and facial you can sit and relax in the sitting area with a beautful ice bowl with sorbet that was delicious and a PERFECT way to end the day. I would highly recommend this spa to anyone that is looking for a complete getaway experience. The people and spa couldn't have been nicer. ENJOY........

Our Mini Vacation
My husband and I went to Les Mini Vacances because it sounded like a unique environment for a day spa. It was wonderful. We enjoyed relaxing messages and a terrific lunch in a beautiful and restful setting. We truly felt like we were on vacation. Terri, the owner makes you feel so welcome...like a dear friend entertaining you in their home. Looking forward to going back.

The Best in NJ.
Les Mini-Vacances Day Spa is absolutely amazing. The quality of the facials and massages are top notch. Not to mention the amazing setting of the facility. My wife and I will definitely be back for another dose of rest and relaxation. Thanks!

Feels like home away from home.
Terri has created a cozy place to really get away from it all, yet she's only a short drive. The grounds are gorgeous any time of year due to the beautiful gardens and setting. The services provided are perfect for what I like and she never ceases to make me feel a lot better than before I got there. I continue to recommend Les Mini Vacanes to many people.
