Whether it’s a quiet break for two in the middle of family travel or a winter getaway by the sea, these New England resorts reward your travels with plenty of pampering at their full-service spas. Each of these offers both single and couple’s massages and other treatments.


Inn by the Sea
As you can guess from its name, Inn by the Sea overlooks a long sandy beach, south of Portland in Cape Elizabeth, Maine. Although you won’t go swimming there in the winter, you’ll find the treatments in SPA at Inn by the Sea carry a real sense of the oceanside setting. Spa products feature rejuvenating seaweed- and marine-based minerals and botanicals, as well as massages such as Higgins Beach Signature Sea Waves, which features a surround-sound massage table with sounds of tumbling of waves. Throughout the contemporary resort, Inn by the Sea’s green philosophy is about more than sustainability and the environment; it is the essence of their dedication to using local products and locally grown foods.


Cliff House
In contrast to Inn by the Sea’s sleek modern vibe, Cliff House in Cape Neddick, Maine, carries the aura of a grand seaside hotel of the late 1800s, which it is. A two-year, multimillion-dollar renovation added all the modern features without losing the historic charm or ocean views from every room. The fragrant beach roses found blooming profusely along the Maine coast feature in restorative facials, massages and hydrating body wraps. Create your own botanical blends of body scrubs and oils at the blending bar in the spa lobby.


Stoweflake Mountain Resort
Near the fabled ski slopes in Stowe, Vermont, Stoweflake Mountain Resort is a seamless blend of family resort and luxury spa. While kids play in the year-round pool or skate on the resort’s pond, you can slip away to the serenity of the spa for a couple’s massage or a signature Vermont Maple Sugar Polish. Relax afterward in the Aqua Solarium, soaking in the stone-lined mineral pool beside a waterfall, as you watch the snow fall outside.


Omni Mount Washington Resort
A classic grand hotel, Omni Mount Washington Resort in Bretton Woods is one of the few remaining century-old summer resorts that were once a hallmark of New Hampshire’s White Mountains. At the foot of Mount Washington and facing the slopes of the state’s largest ski area, the hotel added a separate wing to house the 25,000-square-foot mountain spa. Treatment rooms overlook panoramic views of Mount Washington and the Presidential Range, and treatments are especially attuned to the muscle and skin stresses of skiing, hiking and mountain climbing.
