One of the top spots on the Girlfriends Getaway ideas is a spa weekend.  Originally considered a medicinal cure for nearly everything that ailed you, these days heading out for a spa weekend is the ultimate in self pampering.    And while there are a host of new resorts that have sprung up in response to this travel trend, some of the country’s original spas have gotten facelifts and are re-opened for business.

Berkley Springs, West Virginia is one of the oldest of these spas still in operation.  Originally called the Town of Bath and surveyed by George Washington himself, this beautiful historic town offers some fabulous tours and antique shops along with an incredible spa experience for you and your girlfriends.

There are currently five different spas available in Berkley Springs.  The Atasia Spa is located in one of the historic buildings and offers a full menu of services. Everything from facials to steam baths, mud treatments , even sugar scrubs are offered here by fully licensed therapists.  The Bath House and Day Spa offers a wide variety of massages and aroma therapies along with a shop of natural products.  And the Five Senses Spa, located in the Country Inn at Berkeley offers a number of spa packages and beauty treatments.

Looking to enjoy the spa the way they did a century ago?  Not a problem, the original mineral springs is still operated by the State of West Virginia.  The historic roman styled baths offer 9 750 gallon walk in tubs and also offers simple massage.     There is also an outside spring fed pool that is available in the summer months.

So whether you are looking for a quiet simple getaway or want a full blown luxury filled spa weekend with your closest girlfriends, Ingenious Travel can make it happen for you!
