Just returned home from my last trip to Sagewater Spa and I am still wondering, "Why did I leave?" Lots have been written about their perfect mineral water pools but after a rotator cuff injury from playing golf, I got to experience the healing benefits in a new light. After a

Simply the most amazing water, most amazing location and most amazing hosts, ever. The water is unique and worth a trip across country just to soak —spending hours in the pool was literally nourishing and helped me to feel healthier than I had in years. Nature is the star here—

WOW! Makes us want to check-in! How are we so lucky to have such aware and appreciative guests? We’re creative Type A’s who longed for a place to simply let go.

I think I have been coming to Sagewater Spa for 15 years, which says it all. The water is divine, and the amenities are minimal, which fits the setting. Mostly I love that there are never more than 14 adults and (no children) and often you find yourself soaking and taking in

First and foremost it’s the water, clear, rich in minerals and just the right temperature and seldom if ever crowded. There are seven rooms at Sagewater, all with kitchenettes. Streamlined and comfortable, well equipped kitchen and room to move. It is a place that supports and

Ask the owner, Rhoni. She will get RIGHT back to you, for sure. I cant say that there is a hard and fast rule about kids, but the vibe there is quiet and respectful. Lots of places have curfew on the pool. There are no such rules at SageWater... in other words you can spa 24/7. The KEY is do it QUIETLY. There are plenty of other spas that will accommodate less-than-quiet kids. Since there are only 7 rooms there, I think it might be boring for the kids.

Our hot water comes from our mineral well. The pool is 90 degrees and the jacuzzi is 104. The water is silky and is odorless.
