Very enjoyable. If you are modest, it takes a bit of effort to allow yourself to relax... but once you do, you feel very pampered. My favorite part was actually the paraffin wax hand treatment at the end! I would go again... would be a very fun girls trip!

2 1/2 hours for 71$. That included bath scrub, stitz bath, steam, hot towel wrap and 20 minute great Swedish massage. Recommend highly! Don't pass it up if you are there.

This is not a place to go if you want to do things as a couple, unless you are the same sex couple. However, it was very relaxing and thoroughly enjoyed every minute of my 45 minutes! My husbands comments were a little different. So, I would definitely make this a ladies trip and must do when in Hot Springs!... More

I got the deluxe package and left feeling rejuvenated and relaxed. It was just like in 1912. My attendant Mattie was so nice and made sure I understood each step of the process. Then, Jennifer gave me a massage to die for. The price was right too!!! A must do in Hot Springs!!!

I went to Hot Springs Easter weekend for a girls only spa weekend. We went to Buckstaff as a group (4 of us). We received the Deluxe treatment that included the mineral bath and massage. We LOVED IT. It was so relaxing. The place is not luxurious, its very simple. But it's clean, quaint and we enjoyed it. We had... More

Since my visit to the bath house I've read dozens of reviews so I won't elaborate . Some were spot on. While my attendant, Mattie, was very respectful of my privacy (my boyfriend, who was on the other side of the building cannot say the same) and explained every move we made, I also felt like cattle being rustled to...

Didn't know what to expect. But loved every minute of it. Would do it weekly if I lived here. I purchased the whirlpool experience for $33 and it was worth every dollar!! Such a unique experience from the bath, sitz, steam, hot packs and needle shower. I loved my attendant Sara!! A must do for men and women!

Enjoyed exploring 3 floors of this bathhouse. The Park ranger working the desk surprised us with the information that this location was actually more of a medical facility.

We got up early so we could get the mineral bath with the works. This is in the 1920's setting. Men and women to their own floor's with appropriate employee to assist you. First you soaked in a mineral hot water, followed with hot packs,steam closet,sitz bath, shower and a 20 minute swedish message to finish off with wax dip... More

When I entered this building, I was surprise and totally unexpected the pampering I received. First the water from the Hot Springs comes from way down in the earth and is at 143 degrees hot. Got into a huge tub with water at 104 degrees with whirlpool effect, then a Seitz bath, then a hot needle shower, then relaxed wrapped... More
