The spa is an excellent choice for those of us on the East coast looking for a high quality, full service destination spa. The entire property is beautiful and the spa facility itself is extremely well done! While only there for 2 nights and 3 days, I was able to quickly relax and enjoy every minute of my stay.
What works: Everything in the spa facility: the locker rooms, complete with wet and dry saunas, whirlpool, a screened in porch, beautiful individualized shower/change rooms (the best I've ever seen), the aqua area - indoor and out is just magnificent (especially the high powered waterfall and the outdoor whirlpool). My personal favorite is the Whisper room, which is a beautiful relaxation room with chaise lounges, gas fireplace, a view of the lake and the best trail mix I've ever tasted. The treatments were fantastic. My friend and I shared a body scrub that made my skin feel like a baby for weeks afterwards.
Areas for improvement: Scheduling the spa appointments is a MUST very early in advance. There is very little room for flexibility once you arrive. It also takes longer to get there than the website suggests. From NYC, please allow at least 2.5 hours by car. The option to have wine is great but it is expensive and the room service charge borders on usury. I suggest bringing your own. Lastly, the fitness facility is good but not state of the art. It is also seems less of an area of focus. However, I think a greater link of fitness and spa would round out the offering and allow a more holistic experience for those who are staying for multiple nights.
But let me not nitpick. I loved this spa and know I will return for another visit in the not-too-distant future. This is a wonderful East Coast option and I'm extremely excited to have discovered it!I would visit this business again? Yes
