On a recent trip to Woodstock, a friend recommended I visit this spa and I was not disappointed. The first thing I noticed was the serene environment. Everything was so quiet and I started to relax immediately. I had an amazing hot stone massage followed by a sauna, then had a lovely cup of tea as I relaxed a while longer in the quiet room. The experience was perfect from start to finish and I know I'll return next time I'm in town!

I and my wife were there for a couples massage. I had a decent massage however the events surrounding it were very damaging. My wife and I were sent off to different locker rooms so I assumed that I was in men's locker room. Post massage I felt rushed back to the locker room. Whilst relieving myself in a morning fashion, I was shocked to notice a woman patron being placed in the room. I was completely nude and extremely embarrassed as I'm sure the essence of my morning relief wasn't pleasant. So I waited in the stall (manly feet exposed) until she changed and exited. I also tried to use to the one person sauna that was extremely cool as my burly body never broke a sweat. I brought up the cooler sauna to the front desk and they grew very defensive and dismissive of my claim. They stated it was set to a low temperature for safety reasons. Perhaps I have relative deprivation, but these issues I have never encountered at a nearby spa on route 28. OB

I've been to River Rock four or five times for a massage. The massage rooms are nice and peaceful, and the therapists are generally good. The place isn't really much of a spa, though. There's a teeny tiny sauna in the ladies' changing room, and a steam shower that wasn't working last time I was there. The relaxation room, where you wait for your appointment and can get tea and snacks, is a nice place to sit and read. I'd definitely go there again for a massage, but for a full spa experience, the Emerson on route 28 is probably much better.

I have been to River Rock spa several times in the past few years. The service is consistently good: you feel at ease the moment you walk in. The decor is simple, elegant and the place is always immaculate. Tea and snacks help you unwind before or after the massage. I have had several different kinds of massages there, including during pregnancy for which the masseuse was specifically trained. It made a big impact in the later months. The couples massage was also a highlight right before our wedding -- it really helped us prepare for the big day! The spa is located at the edge of Woodstock's main street, so it is really a treat to combine it with a great, healthy meal or a day that includes one of the many cultural events there. I will keep going back to River Rock whenever I deserve to treat myself and recommend it very highly.
