West Virginia State Parks offer the ultimate rest and relaxation opportunities for any occasion. Whether you’re looking for a romantic getaway for two or a girls’ weekend away, check out these top three spa spots at West Virginia State Parks.
1. Berkeley Springs State Park
The mineral waters at Berkeley Springs State Park have been known for centuries as a place to “take the waters,” relax and rejuvenate. Nestled on four acres, the park is one of the smallest in the state park system. It features a roman bathhouse and museum, a public drinking spring and a lookout tower that offers spectacular views. The spa area is a step back in time with a modern twist. Women can soak away stress in either the roman baths or one of three jetted whirlpool tubs to relax tired muscles. Then, just a few feet away, a massage therapist stands ready to rub away any trouble spots. A separate area for men features roman baths, two whirlpool tubs and massage tables as well. Dry saunas are available in both the women’s and men’s sections. In the roman bath areas, the naturally 74-degree mineral waters coming from the main springs are heated to 102 degrees, which is a good temperature everyone can enjoy.
2. Canaan Valley Resort State Park
Canaan Valley Resort State Park offers guests a variety of massages, including Swedish, Deep Tissue, Hot Stone, Prenatal and a Couples massage that’s a romantic escape for two. The Golfers Getaway massage focuses on the rotator cup muscles, lower back, hips and forearms to help that back swing. A massage facial will give you a healthier glow and relief of everyday tension, as well as increasing oxygen and nutrients to the skin and improving texture. Once you’re refreshed, stretch out by the pool and enjoy the mountain views while you soak up the sun.
3. Stonewall Resort State Park
The Mountain Laurel Spa at Stonewall Resort State Park offers luxury from head to toe. Choose a massage, facial, body wraps and scrubs, a mani/pedi or a combination package that includes a little bit of everything! Then, have a seat in a lakeside Adirondack chair. The patio is the place to be, before or after some time in the pool, sauna or Jacuzzis. In the evening, relax under the stars by the scenic fire pit.
