New spas open in Jackson’s premier inns!

North Conway, NH – Two newcomers have joined the spa scene in Mt. Washington Valley, New Hampshire’s premier vacation destination. Both the newly re-built Inn at Thorn Hill and the Christmas Farm Inn now offer luxurious full-service spas along with luxury accommodations and fine dining. They join Mt. Washington Valley’s spa scene, along with the well known Mountain View Grand Hotel’s full-service spa, and The Cut Off, Mt. Washington Valley’s premier day spa. A host of healing arts experts round out the offerings for those looking for everything from reflexology to wellness programs, fang shun, and even astrology. Many of the resorts, hotels and inns in the region also offer massage and wellness weekends, making Mt. Washington Valley the ideal destination for those who want a lot of pampering and a wealth of body, mind and spirit offerings.

After a fire destroyed much of the Inn at Thorn Hill in 2002, owners Jim and Ibby Cooper were devastated, but motivated to rebuild their inn with all the amenities offered by New England’s finest inns. In addition to adding beautifully furnished and decorated guest rooms and suites, along with incredible dining facilities, and the 1500-listing wine selection, they built a full-service spa. The list of offerings is extensive from invigorating Thai Yoga, neuromuscular and lymphatic drainage massage to facials, parafango body wraps, and pilates conditioning. Weekly yoga classes are offered along with a personal trainer to work with guests in the inn’s well equipped fitness room. The Inn at Thorn Hill offers delightful spa lunches, beautifully presented in traditional Japanese Bento Boxes and featuring healthy choices of Asian offerings, complete with chopsticks. There are a host of spa packages from which to choose, offering everything from a half-day of spa pampering to the ultimate two-day spa getaway.
