Zen in the Wilderness
Very near to the place where the cookhouse casts its shadow on the shore of the Bedwell River, sits the beautiful Healing Grounds, an eco-safari style massage and therapeutic treatment centre with the soul of an outpost spa and and a personality all its own.
Four massage and treatment tents, three wood-fired cedar hot tubs, a wood-fired cedar sauna, outdoor showers, seawater baths and wrap-around sun decks artfully compose a rest and relation destination of intimate proportions.
Here, the muffled footfall of passers-by on the boardwalk, the screach of an eagle, the faraway thunder of galloping horses and the laughter of children, gently pepper the meditative hum of the wilderness as the afternoon passes by -- a new kind of peace more restorative than silence.
Inside the massage and treatment tents, holistic therapies are administered in calming, comforting seclusion. Warm fingers of sunlight filter down through the canopy and dance with the shadows, lulling guests into sync with the energy of the ages. The healing is complete.
Near to the Healing Grounds, a small fitness facility complete with stair machine, rowing machine and free weights sits next to a yoga studio complete with heated floors and scheduled morning classes.
