Spa-goers will become inspired by the 27,000-square-foot spa, where a design palette of wood and natural stone design evokes the natural beauty and serenity of picturesque Vermont. Housed in its own standalone building on the resort's grounds, the spa has 10 treatment rooms, as well as a swimming pool, sauna, steam room, and separate men's and women's locker rooms with shower fixtures.

A wide range of product brands are used and include Skin Authority, Epicuren, Davines, and Aromafloria. Couples, mother-daughter groups, and friends can enjoy side-by-side services like tailored massage, facials, and soaks in a dual tub, while male spa guests can unwind with bespoke treatments like the VIP Retreat, a combination of hydrotherapy, massage, and an express facial in a private suite. The Signature Customized Body Treatment is a unique ritual, as guests select their own ingredients for a salt or sugar scrub.
