Looking for a peaceful wintery escape? Visit this tranquil spa set in the rustic Lost Lake Forest! The spa experience is based on the ancient Scandinavian tradition of hydrotherapy. This process involves guests visiting the hot and cold pools before resting in one of the many relaxation areas. (Fans of hot pools should also check out the Crazy Creek Resort.)
