Exciting and relaxing are conflicting adjectives that truly exist in harmony in this one-of-a-kind bath. It elicits “WOW” from everyone that enters. Our clients wanted to create the feel of a spa resort without the hassle of making reservations and traveling to one. They wanted a relaxing modern Spa that not only could they enjoy, but that their frequent weekend guests could also visit.
The Lodge had a detached old garage/playroom building connected by a breezeway, so it was easily decided that this space would be renovated and the modern Spa would be crafted.
This small space with curved glass, curved walls, vanity made from a single slab of honed black granite, and angled window nook has become a jewel of pleasure. Guests relax on the granite seat in the steam shower, listen to music, and enjoy the digital system which controls the water features: body sprays, shower head, handheld, and steam.
