The Kerr House

Whether you want to decompress with a girlfriend for the weekend, embark on a weight-loss regimen or get some quiet time alone, The Kerr House is our hot tip in Ohio. A typical day at this charming Victorian manor, which accepts just five to eight guests at a time, begins with breakfast in bed and concludes with a candle-lit dinner. In between, guests do downward dogs, work up a sweat during exercise, rest or stroll along nearby Maumee River. In this cozy, nurturing environment, a skilled staff will address your every need — mental, physical and emotional — so you will leave feeling better, no matter if it was the desire for stress management, better health or low self esteem that brought you here. For such an intimate space, this destination spa offers so much with a menu that ranges from a holistic stone facial and reflexology to Reiki and their specialty, holistic microdermabrasion. Large groups can reserve the entire house. Need further reassurance? Their motto, "You can improve with age," speaks volumes!
