Historically known as the town of Bath, Berkeley Springs is recognized as one of the nation’s first spas (George Washington even frequented it!)

2. The Renaissance Spa at the Country Inn of Berkeley Springs
In addition to the whirlpool baths filled with Berkeley Springs natural mineral water, the Renaissance Spa at the Country Inn of Berkeley Springs offers aromatherapy soaks, facials, massages, manicures, pedicures, body wraps, scrubs and peels, and spectacular views of the town.
3. The Salt Cave and Spa
Housed in a man-made underground cave, The Salt Cave and Spa’s signature salt halotherapy (which involves inhaling a mixture of White Himalayan and Pink Himalayan salt particles) is said to reduce inflammation. You can also indulge in biomat, body treatments, facials, aromatherapy, ion foot detox/ cleanse, light therapy, reflexology, reiki and yoga.
4. Mineral Spa at The Greenbrier
The renowned Mineral Spa at The Greenbrier is the only Forbes five-star mineral spa in the world. The use of natural white sulphur spring waters and mineral-based products that are indigenous to the area have drawn people from all over the world to “take to the waters” for more than 230 years.
