I chose this bathhouse because you didn't need an appointment and the reviews were good. I was very fickle about trying any bathhouse, but I'm so glad I did. For me, it was a once-in-a-lifetime experience. I got there in the 11am hour and they...More

You MUST treat yourself and have a deluxe spa package at The Busckstaff. The entire experience was wonderful. I like that the ladies are upstairs and the gentlemen are downstairs. The warm mineral water has healing powers, I will swear by it! Cooper gave me...More

My Mother's Day treat! Had a 20 minute massage which was good, just not long enough. Also had a one hour facial which I highly recommend! Shannon was great! The massage was okay, however, the facial was awesome!

Husband and I decided to get the whirlpool bath treatment while visiting the national park. The front desk girls were ok. Not as friendly or informative as I would have hoped but not nasty either. They just seemed resigned to be there. The women providing...More

This gives you a good idea of how the old fashioned bathouses were. Not for the super modest tho. I had sara as my bath attendant and karen did my massage. Great experience!

Everyone wears a towel or a swimsuit. My fellas wore swimsuits and did not feel self conscious They said that it was nice and relaxing

I am traveling with my teenage son through Hot Springs. Can you offer any insight into what it will be like for him? Given the atmosphere, I want to be sure he has enough privacy to be comfortable, but also will he be able to stay with me through the process? Thanks!

The floors are gender based. So a son can stay with Dad but not Mom My husband and son wore swim trunks during their experience. I wore a sheet. So I would say no problem!
Are the attendants all women or is it male-male, female-female?
