This Aveda and Phutomer spa is located in the Grand View Lodge.
Moms ready to relax with the aroma of lime, mint, rosemary and lavender go to Grand View Lodge Resort's Arts and Crafts-style Glacial Waters Spa. Guests wrap up in soft robes, sip hot tea and lounge by the fireplace before heading for fragrant soaks, deep massages and pedicures. "On a busy Saturday, we have more than 100 appointments," says Cathy Clark, who welcomes guests at the reception area. "They come from all over the country--mothers, daughters and girlfriends." The relaxing begins alongside a crackling fire in the waiting room, where soaring windows look out onto a forested view. Service providers are cheery and welcoming, and rates for services are about what you'd expect at a high-end resort like Grand View ($80 for a four-season pedicure, plus gratuity). It's definitely a splurge, but if you're looking to treat yourself, this is the place.
