I had never been to a spa before, but my friend bought me a pedicure. My first ever. She went first, so I kinda got to watch and know what to expect. My turn, I was a little nervous, but survived. Hardest decision was trying to decide the color to paint my toenails afterwards. I was thinking orange since I'm... More

Please don't let the small, not posh outside of this spa keep you from trying it! We live in Asheville but had some jewelry work being done at a local jeweler that caused us to be in Waynesville for four hours. I booked a couples massage at this little spa and at first we were a little unsure of what... More

I chose to book services for my husband and myself at this spa because of previous glowing reviews. Not sure how, but we had a very different experience. First of all, when I called to confirm our 4 reserved services a couple of days in advance, Susan told me that "I was mistaken"...that I did not book 4, only two,... More

When you enter the atmosphere is welcoming and relaxing. The essential oil they were using was light and rejuvenating. Ashley was the best therapist I've ever had!! I got the 90min full body and added on hot stones and I was in heaven! I believe I fell asleep at one point because I was so relaxed lol.

Three of us spent a whole day being pampered head to toe. The staff was wonderful helping us plan and schedule it all in advance and every service was great. It was a definite splurge but worth every penny. It is small, very intimate but with very fine technicians and a breathtaking setting on the golf course looking up to... More

When we drove up to the spa we were not sure about it. Once we got in, it was very nicly decorated. The massages were fantastic, probably the best we have ever had. Anthony and Ashley both customized the massages to our indivdual needs. We will go back again.

I have visited Waynesville several time in the past. This quaint little town seems to be peaceful but trendy, The atmosphere is similar to that of Asheville but without the crowd or the traffic. I adore it here. The mountains are beautiful and people are friendly. Today I found the diamond in this little gem mine and his name is... More

I made an appointment last minute since my trip was unplanned. I had a 90 minute massage with heat. Which was excellent! Anthony, my therapist, has amazing hands. i left feeling like new person. Exactly what I needed. My only complaint, the building was a little difficult to find. It could use better signage.

Thank you for your kind words about Anthony. He is truly gifted and a profound asset to the Balsam Spa. His dedication to healing and helping his clients is inspiring. I appreciate your comments about the difficulty finding our tucked away haven. We have added 3 signs this year to make it easier to find us, but we will add... More

While lodging at Waynesville Inn, a must treat included facial and reflexology services. The Balsam Spa at Waynesville is a hidden gem, offering first-rate services in the serenity of the mountains. No rushing, high-pressure sales, rushing you through your service(s). Molly and Anthony were fantastic and provided me a very relaxing afternoon. The Spa is on my "return visit" list... More
