2004 Best Day Spa, Martha's Vineyard

The Spa at Mansion House

Vineyarders in the know are already flocking to this petite, year-old day spa in Vineyard Haven’s Mansion House Inn. In addition to being the only spa on the island to have an on-site pool, hot tub, and sauna, this laid-back spot offers a full range of massages, body wraps and scrubs, facials, manicures and pedicures. Our favorite? The hot stone aromatherapy massage, delivered in a candlelit room using essential oils guaranteed to melt tense muscles (if de-stressing is your aim, go for the lavender). It’s perfect after battling the traffic to the ferry.
