Mirroring the bucolic charm and chic sophistication of the reimagined Lake House property, the Willowbrook Spa takes inspiration from its iconic lakefront location and the unfiltered beauty of the Finger Lakes, renowned for postcard-worthy views of lakes and rolling hills steeped in local history.

As one of the East Coast’s foremost wine and agricultural regions, we took inspiration from an area we know well, infusing California Wine Country lifestyle and culinary arts throughout the experience; manifested through a strong connection to the natural world, plant medicine to promote holistic health and elevated food and beverage offerings.

A distinctively residential esthetic permeates the spa, with a layered design that highlights moments of discovery within a refined ambiance of ease and comfort.  The Sunroom is an expansive lounge environment with multiple seating areas: abundant natural light, fresh airflow, and inspiring lake views. This leads to the Spa Garden, which includes three-barrel saunas with their own outdoor showers and resting areas that form a private al fresco contrast bathing circuit for individuals, couples, or small groups. 

Intentionally simple and thoughtfully curated, the spa menu offers one-of-a-kind experiences, including session-based skincare treatments and the property’s signature massage offering that pairs prescriptive techniques with herbal-infused oils and topical remedies to complement the intuitive intelligence of the therapist.

Willowbrook Spa harkens back to an analog existence of celebrating human connection, a slower pace of life, and outdoor living. We are leveraging the local community’s down-to-earth philosophy and connection to the natural world through the spa’s design esthetic, pure effective products, and results-driven services.
