I went to The Oaks to join my sister for a few days. While the people were very unpretentious and friendly, the physical building needs some updating. The meals they served were very nutritious and Visually elegant and the classes they offered were enjoyable. Yoga, Stretching, water aerobics, etc. My tip to you is to bring your own salt shaker!

I needed a place to relax with girlfriends and take some time to focus on my health and well-being. The Oaks delivered! Be sure to get the salt scrub and facial with Toni; she is amazing! I didn't have to think about my food (it was delicious and healthy!) and never felt hungry. There is a wide variety of spa...

The Oaks is a wonderful, down-to-earth real spa. The massages, facials, and pedicures were done by the best therapists we have ever experienced. The resort is comfortable, not too fancy, but relaxing in every way. We also enjoyed their delicious and gorgeous spa lunch outside by the pool.

So while it is not some elegant resort, it is first class. The staff is efficient and friendly. The cuisine is healthy and delicious. They have a great chef. The rooms are comfortable. If you are looking for a quiet get-away, this is the place. You can exercise, hike, swim, relax or walk around town. I love coming here!

I stayed at this spa for two days several weeks ago after a friend who stayed there for a week in the spring raved about the place. Unfortunately, my experience was not a pleasant one. The unpleasantness began at check in on a Friday. Several months ago they had an online survey on their website that gave me $150 spa...

sjan...We're so glad you took time to explain your experiences with us. Wow, we really dropped the ball in so many ways. Our Front Desk staff typically receives raves for their friendly helpfulness, your experience is not the norm.

The Oaks is a grand place to leave your worries at home. THE BEST PART OF BEING HERE IS NEVER TO HAVE TO MAKE IMPORTANT DECISIONS. The hardest part is choosing between all the great classes and spa cares.

This place is really nice. After a few days you immerse, blend in with the healthy resort. There are various classes during the day, and between you can enjoy good, healthy food. During your stay you do nice acquaintances at the same time as you pamper yourself in a best possible way. I will be back!
