Spas of America, a healthy living and travel website showcasing the best Spa & Wellness travel experiences, today launched their 700th spa listing and first Historic spa experience: The Millcroft Inn & Spa, Alton-Caledon, Ontario, Canada.

“Spas of America is pleased to welcome the Millcroft Inn & Spa,” says Spas of America president Craig Oliver. “Situated less than an hour from Canada’s largest city and two hours from New York State, the Millcroft is a premier spa destination offering the charm and romance of the past, complemented by four-diamond comfort and first-class service.“

A historic gem dating back to the 1880s, the Millcroft was originally built as a textile mill. Today guests can stay and dine in the same building, where they’ll enjoy stunning views of the millpond and nearby Shaw’s Creek Falls. A definitive country retreat, the Millcroft is part of a small community known for its thriving art scene, love for horses and many outdoor activities.

One signature spa treatment at the Millcroft Spa is the Raindrop Therapy with Native Indian Hot Rock Massage. This unique therapy developed by the American Lakota Indians is designed to align energy centers, release blockages and bring the body into balance. Nine essential oils are strategically applied and worked into the back muscles, followed by a full-body massage. More details about the Millcroft Inn & Spa can be viewed at its platinum member listing:

Paul MacIntyre, GM of the Pillar and Post, another fine heritage property, oversees all Vintage Hotels spas, including its newest one at the Millcroft Inn. MacIntyre says, “We’re very proud to have our spa chosen for this milestone. We look forward to the Millcroft Inn & Spa being showcased to Spas of America’s targeted Spa & Wellness consumers from around the world.” Vintage Hotels also operates two other boutique spa properties in Southern Ontario, 100 Fountain Spa at Pillar and Post and the Secret Garden Spa, Prince of Wales Hotel. (Both spas ranked in Spas of America’s Top 30 Spas of 2008 based on consumer traffic to the Spas of America website.)
