Ask Susie: Girlfriends Getaway
I’m looking for a spa for my girlfriends on the East Coast.
We are located in VA and NY. Is there a spa midway that you could recommend so we are not overburdening one set with travel?
I was thinking Delaware [or] Pennsylvania. Prefer a spa resort, but would consider a very nice day spa and we can make accommodations elsewhere.
Time away with your girlfriends in a spa setting sounds like the perfect antidote to unwind. More and more spas are catering to this idea as well, as they continue to offer specific treatments and packages geared toward groups, bridal parties, mother-daughter teams, etc.
The Omni Bedford Springs in Bedford, Pennsylvania, is one that comes to mind. It’s been designated a National Historic Landmark, while offering all the luxuries of a contemporary spa resort, and its Springs Eternal Spa centers around eight on-site mineral springs.
The Lodge at Woodloch is also a popular Pennsylvania destination — a frequent SpaFinder Readers’ Choice Award winner, the Lodge is all about complete spa programming to jumpstart a healthier lifestyle, though without deprivation: There’s absolutely delicious organic gourmet food and an incredible wine list.
