“Spa Gal” Visits Cascade Spa

MassageWhat happens when a well-traveled spa lover vacations on Lake Winnipesaukee?  If it’s one of the “Spa Gals,” she takes a short trip to Meredith, indulges at Cascade Spa, and writes a glowing review online!

Kara Williams is a professional travel writer who, along with Beth Blair and Jennifer Miner, created the fun website called “Spa Gals.”   Kara rarely misses an opportunity to spa, and when she spends summer vacations at her mom’s house on this famous New Hampshire lake, she finds time to visit The Inns and Spa at Mill Falls, where she tries out some of the many services and treatments Cascade Spa has to offer.

Over the years, Kara has enjoyed many of the different types of massages and pedicures here, and on her last visit, she treated herself to an “Express Foot Ritual,” which was an abbreviated 25-minute pedicure.  Kara then wrote about the beautiful features of Cascade Spa and how relaxing the whole experience is.  She also noted how friendly and experienced the staff is, and said, “It’s a cozy, comfortable spot to enjoy an hour (or two or three) or pampering.”

Wouldn’t a treatment at Cascade Spa make the perfect gift, or break for yourself, this holiday season?

Looking for a more relaxed holiday outing or a unique, artistic gift for someone special?  This Thursday, December 9th, several galleries in Meredith will brighten up the evening with refreshments, music, and special discounts as part of the First Annual Meredith Village Art Walk.

Both new and long-established galleries in Meredith will be participating in this first-time event, which is modeled after similar community art walks like Portsmouth’s Art ‘Round Town or Portland’s First Friday Art Walk.  Visitors can meander through town and enjoy beautiful local and international art while socializing with artists and neighbors alike!

At the lakes gallery at chi-lin, Craig Jaster, an accomplished jazz musician, will be performing live music while guests sip and stroll through the gallery and view artwork from all over the world, as well as an amazing new Asian jewelry collection.  Well-known designer Marsha Gintzler will be on hand to talk about her beautiful new line, Pearls Near Jade, which mixes antique Chinese pieces with semiprecious Asian stones and pearls.

Come to Meredith Village to share a fun night with friends, and show your local galleries and artists a little love this holiday season!
