Spa Getaway for Mom

Who is more deserving than Mom of a little time to get away and relax?

Since Mother’s Day is a time to treat her to something she would not ordinarily buy for herself, a gift card to a spa can be just the ticket.  Whether it’s a few hours at a local spa – or a longer getaway to a spa destination – most moms can use a bit of time to simply unplug.

I was excited to work with the 4-Diamond Osthoff Resort to share details about the property – and their award-winning Aspira Spa - on today's “You & Me” show on WCIU-TV in Chicago. 

The Elkhart Lake area where The Osthoff is located has long been a popular Wisconsin escape for people in the Chicago area.  And it’s not just Chicagoans who head north to escape the summer heat; when I was growing up in southeast Missouri, our family drove up to Wisconsin for three consecutive summers.

Conde Nast readers voted the Aspira Spa as the 3rd best spa in North America – including the Caribbean.  Since it is a four-season resort, Mom can plan her getaway any time of year.

The spa is an ideal place for her to relax and recharge, either by herself, with a partner or friends - maybe even a mother/daughter weekend.  They even have Spa Suites, where you can all enjoy treatments together.    

This peaceful meditation room is the perfect place to unplug.

Signature treatments include this Cedar Massage and Elderberry Facial.  The chamomile, lavender and other plants used in treatments are grown in their own organic garden.  

The yoga studio, amazing cafes and restaurants and beautiful property round out the perfect setting for her to relax and recharge. 

Here's a clip of this morning's segment.
