The 14,000-square-foot Copperhood Spa is designed to recall the luxury of the Roman baths, with a 60-foot indoor pool, sauna, steam room and Jacuzzi. The treatment rooms include a hydrotherapy suite with Vichy shower and a spacious jetted tub.  Our treatments menu reflect the best of the European tradition – facials, herbal wraps, and Swedish massage, and more.

After a week of scenic morning hikes, meditation, aqua aerobics, steam room/sauna, spa treatments and time just for relaxation, with a little tai-chi thrown in, I left the Copperhood feeling myself smiling with my heart, mind, body and soul.

August 2015

I checked into Copperhood, solo, in need of a break from career, family, obligations and an endless list of action items. I sought out a place where I would not be connected to technology and would be free from distractions. Copperhood was that place. Elizabeth and her staff are wonderful. They are accommodating, informative, friendly and managed our group’s unique set of requirements. My goals included detoxing from sugar, caffeine and alcohol for a week. Although weight control is not the main objective of juicing, dropping 6 pounds in 4 days was a nice benefit. The schedule (hiking, meditation, yoga, Pilates, aqua aerobics and interval training) was busy enough to divert your attention from being hungry, but was not so taxing that you were not able to enjoy yourself. You do not have to attend everything, but there’s a lot of options to take advantage of. … Thank you Elizabeth and staff for an experience that kicked off a life long journey.
