It can be easy to get caught up in all the outdoor fun that Vermont has to offer. With skiing, snowboarding, hiking, climbing and tons of other activities, you're bound to find something great to do. But after a while you - and your sore muscles - may need a day to relax and recuperate. If that's the case, you should consider some of these great southern Vermont spas, guaranteed to help you restore your mind and body to peak condition.
If you're looking for something close by after a hard day's skiing at Mount Snow, you'd do well to take a break at the spa at The White House Inn. Featuring a wide range of spa packages for your body or face, this massage-focused spa will undoubtedly please. With everything from Swedish to deep tissue to hot stone massages, the White House Inn will definitely have something to help you center yourself and get back on the slopes - or just help you rejuvenate. You can even take a couple's massage class with that special someone and learn the techniques the pros use to give a relaxing, full-back massage.
Of course the White House Inn isn't the only southern Vermont spa near Wilmington. Just a short drive to Bennington will bring you to the Green Mountains Oasis, a full-service spa with enough options to keep you coming back for days in a row. Besides manicures, pedicures, facials and waxing, you'll also find a full range of massage treatments including hot oil massage, sports massage and even Thai yoga massages focused on flexibility and breathing. Or you can try their skin and body treatments, including the special Warm Cinnamon Bun Body Wrap, where you'll be "drenched in a warm cinnamon-infused body butter and wrapped in a toasty cocoon of blankets." Sounds delicious!
Another popular southern Vermont spa is the Colonial Motel's Brattleboro Spa, just west of Wilmington in the town of Brattleboro. The Brattleboro Spa offers a 75-foot saltwater pool, hot tub, and a rustic wooden sauna, giving you plenty of options for how to relax after a hard day. The spa also features a full fitness center for those in the mood to keep their muscles working, and a dedicated masseuse for those wanting to relax. You can even join in some water aerobics classes or swimming lessons to get a different sort of workout.
