Winterholme Wellness Center & Spa
Built in 1905, what was once the home of a merchant is now an absolutely stunning place to spend a day getting pampered. There's not many places where you can take in the beauty of a national historic site while getting a massage but, Winterholme Wellness Centre and Spa does just that. Lucky us, we got to spend a day there recently! As soon as we walked through the front doors and entered to the grand foyer of this over 100 year old mansion, we felt like we travelled back in time.
Incredibly, they've managed to maintain the original charm and look of this home. The ceilings and mantels still show the meticulous original plasterwork; in my opinion, it's worth visiting the Winterholme just to see that! As you walk through each room you are taken aback by the grandness of it all, from the high ceilings to the rugs on the floor, each room has so much to discover.
We had the pleasure of having Jason Piercey, from Out of the Fog, join us on our visit to the Winterholme. Check out the video below that showcases a little bit about what we do as bloggers and gives a great sneak peek about the beautiful interior of this home! Our interview with Out of the Fog is also posted on their Facebook page.
Winterholme offers a number of services. They're one of the few places in St.John's that have focused on creating a wellness centre where you can get a selection of specialized services under one roof. They offer registered massage therapy, acupuncture, naturopathic medicine, reflexology, and Indian head massage.
Of course, they also have a spa which offers a wide variety of services from manicures, pedicures, relaxation and hot stone massage, waxing, facials and body treatments just to name a few.
While we were there we indulged in the relaxation spa massage. They use Decléor oils from Paris which Jess and I both agreed made our skin feel very soft. The best part, and what truly makes the experience unique, is that you get your massage in the converted bedroom of this historical mansion. I mean how incredible are these rooms!
After a day of being pampered, I left feeling spoiled. I will definitely be going back to check out more of their services. It's a great spot for a girls day out like we had, or if you just need to have some "me time".
