I had the relaxation massage package for 90 minutes. It was wonderful. Don, the massage therapist, was awesome and had skillfull techniques to get the stress out of muscles. The package I had gave champagne and voucher for the Jackalope Bar and Grill, so those are also bonus points.

Theresa gave me a great facial! They did a great job renovating the spa - it's really beautiful and much more modern than the hotel.

Quiet rooms with soft music, heated tables, and relaxing areas, make this a favorite of mine. Take a steam and dry sauna afterwards for a great vacation within a vacation.

My husband and I booked a deep tissue couples massage the last day of our vacation. After 5 days of hiking the beautiful Yosemite Park, we thought it would be a perfect note to end our holiday.
