Looking for a little pampering these days?

No time for or plans for a winter vacation? How about treating yourself to a day at one of the local spas in Lanark County. A trip to the spa can be as simple as getting a manicure or pedicure but it can also be so much more! Spas offer facial treatments, massages, waxing, hair services, skin treatments including mud baths and sugar scrubs, and they may even include a healthy meal or snack. Check out some of these options:

Approximately ½ hour from Perth, Carleton Place and Almonte, don’t be fooled by the country location. Owner Donna Dillman and her life partner Cam, purchased this former church and have created a small Bed and Breakfast, with an 850 sq. ft. Day Spa attached. They offer a range of holistic possibilities including the use of hot/cold tubs, saunas, quiet time, massage and Reiki.

New services are being added so check out the website and schedule your day! http://circa1894.ca/

So, whether you are looking for a little TLC for yourself or looking for a fun thing to do with some friends, you don’t need to go far to find some great places to relax and get pampered.
