Spas of Vermont make for an indulgent vacation

Wednesday, April 23, 2008 by Jacqui Pini

StoweflakeAnyone who skis knows that Vermont filled with lots of great mountains. Along with that comes many delicious restaurants, cozy inns and fireside lodges, but what about if you really need to relax after a long day of skiing. Vermont has some really luxurious spas that can be get you polished and groomed not just after a long day on the slopes, but all year long.

The Spa at Stoweflake offers what they call the "Bingham Hydrotherapy Waterfalls and Hungarian Mineral Soaking Pool." It is an indoor area that features a 12-foot waterfall (right) where guests can sit underneath and get massaged by the falling water. The soaking pool is filled with minerals from Hungary. Not such a bad way to indulge after skiing, hiking golfing or just doing nothing.

The Top Notch Resort and Spa in Stowe, Vermont, offers a Maple Syrup Body Scrub, made from syrup from Vermont trees. They also offer a Vermont Herbal Fusion Wrap, which is basically linens steeped in water with herbs and plants that are native to Vermont.

The Stowe Mountain Lodge, set to open in June of 2008, is already promoting their spa and Salon Mario Russo, where you can get your hair or nails done- or visit with their bridal specialist. According to the Web site this will be a Boston-based hairdresser Mario Russo's first salon outside of the city.

Spa Week is here

Monday, April 14, 2008 by Jacqui Pini

Want to be easy on the eyes and on the wallet at the same time. It is possible for the next few days because it is Spa Week (April 14-20)... a glorious seven days of discounted treatments at some of the most luxe spas and salons. I am seeing $50 specials on a variety of hair, nail, skin and other relaxing services throughout the U.S. to make you feel polished and groomed.

Spaweek.org gave me great tips on spa etiquette, including mentioning you're booking a Spa Week special deal when you make the appointment, requesting a male or female at the time of booking if you have a preference for some of the more hands-on treatments and they say standard tipping is 15-20% of the original price of the service.

Indulge yourself for less!
