Heatless Havens for the Ultimate in Pampering

You’ve been to the pool, you’ve hung out at the mall. Where else can you escape this HEAT??

How about a nice break, not only from those rays, but from your tv, the internet, your cell phone…how about a day at the spa! Just a few short minutes from out cottages are some great day spas and fantastic treatments that will transport you from the heat of the July sun to a cool, meditational setting that’s all about you. Here’s a few we recommend:

Lexington’s Mill Street Salon Body and Soul Day Spa offers your basics–hair cuts and styles, straightening and wave treatments and hair removal–but it also has some goodies hidden in its menu:

  • Massages using Aveda aromas
  • Chakra massage and nail care to draw upon your own energy centers
  • Caribbean body and nail treatments…like a virtual beach vacation without the heat!
  • A “Perfect” Peel made of plants!


A beautiful Victorian home in Staunton is home to Breezy Hill Day Spa, an oasis for relaxation and escape.We especially like the atmosphere of this quaint spot, in addition to half and full-day packages that allow you to really unwind and leave the world behind. Breezy Hill is even the home of a dress from season 5 of Project Runway! Their facebook page is regularly updated with monthly specials.

Sheer Dimensions Salon & Day Spa in Waynesboro celebrates its 20th anniversary this month as the trendy northern Virginia salon. Guests await their treatments while enjoying Keurig coffees and green teas and are then whisked away for the ultimate pampering. We liked the couples therapy and “Herbology” body treatment, but with Redken certified staff, you’re sure to enjoy your visit to Sheer Dimensions no matter what you choose!

All of our guests are privy to our assistance setting up spa appointments and navigating to their relaxation spot of choice…just let us know how we can help you to find your own summer getaway!

Your Hosts,
Bill and Eileen Hoernlein
