American Historic Inns, the nation's leading publisher of Bed and Breakfast guidebooks, released its recommendations on Spa Bed and Breakfasts across America.
Is there anything better than a spa vacation; being indulged and fussed over? Answer: Yes, if the spa happens to be part of a unique and charming Bed and Breakfast (B&B) or country inn (http://www.iloveinns.com) Here's six such Spa Bed and Breakfasts across America that just took our breath away.
The Cheshire Cat Inn & Spa in Santa Barbara, California is located in two side-by-side Victorian mansions graced with high ceilings, and pagoda-type bay windows. There's also a coach house and two cottages for you to unwind in, just minutes from downtown. However, if you want to get serious about relaxation, partake in the Cheshire Cat's many forms of massage. This B&B's signature 'Cheshire Cat' massage uses a combination of aromatic oils of citrus, rosemary and ginger to relieve the stressed back, neck, shoulders and scalp. The Magic Garden massage features a full-body Swedish massage and foot reflex treatment, using the essential oils of lavender, chamomile and geranium for pure stress relief. There's even a safe and comfortable prenatal massage to meet the special needs of the expectant mother.
Imagine a luxurious spa nestled among Alaska's snow-capped mountains; a magical place that combines elegant living with the acme of natural beauty? Welcome to Pearson's Pond Luxury Inn & Adventure in Juneau. This is an entirely one-of-a-kind B&B that offers massage, aromatherapy paraffin treatments, a well-equipped fitness center and outdoor hot tubs with spectacular views.
It also provides a wide range of outdoor activities such as whale watching by kayak, glacier dog mushing and fishing.
A quiet, restful adobe retreat in northern New Mexico: That's the Abbe' de Touchstone Taos Bed and Breakfast Inn, Spa and Gallery. Owned and operated by artist Bren Price, Touchstone offers a refuge to unwind the mind while the body is pampered in this B&B's Riverbend Spa. You can enjoy your massage in an indoor spa room or outdoors next to the river. "End your day by winding down to soothing music inside our state of the art sauna, and then take yourself through a journey of transformation by walking the Labyrinth of Lauren." Touchstone also offers a "Vision Quest for Couples" featuring spa wraps and massage, and a full-body massage designed to gently soften muscles to allow for maximum release and deep relaxation.
Located close to Dallas, The Sanford House Inn & Spa is comprised of a rambling elegant mansion and four cottages, all decorated in majestic yet understated elegance. Besides offering a superb menu and wine tasting in its private dining room, Sanford House Inn offers a breadth of spa amenities. These include a range of massages, body polishing, and Botanical; Sanford House's botox-like wrinkle treatment uses no needle, and generates no pain. Add facials, makeup, waxings, hand and foot treatments and even a hair salon, and Sanford House truly is an all-in-one spa/country inn escape.
Daniel Webster was a famous 19th-century U.S. lawyer and politician. So legendary was his eloquence, that a story was written called 'The Devil and Daniel Webster' in which Webster defeats Lucifer in a court case for a man's soul. However, the Plum Beach Spa at the Dan'l Webster Inn and Spa (Sandwich, M.A.) will do anything but bedevil you, thanks to its many soothing treatments. (This historic inn is named for Webster, who stayed at the tavern on this site regularly between 1815 and 1851.) Among its luxuries are massages, various body treatments, facials and add-ons, waxing, hand & foot treatments, a Men's Spa and bridal services. The Dan'l Webster Inn and Spa also offers overnight spa/accommodations packages.
Completing our spa odyssey from west to east, the Buttermilk Falls Inn & Spa in Milton, N.Y. is a renovated 1680 home and 70-acre estate on the banks of the Hudson River. Outside, the grounds have retained their historic charm with exquisite gardens, flowering terraces, and wildflower fields; there are even swans. Indoors, guests can enjoy their own whirlpool tub or curl up in front of their fireplaces.
In the spa, this B&B offers Swedish, Shiatsu, and Hot Stone massages; among others. In the Hot Stone treatment, hot river stones are used to bring relief to tense muscles and sore joints. The Buttermilk Falls Inn & Spa also offers facials and back skin treatments, and has a geothermally heated, solar powered salt water mineral pool.
