Buckstaff Bathhouse, a traditional bathhouse, offers massages and treatments centered around its mineral-water source. Opened in 1912, the Neoclassical building houses a series of baths that are visited in a circuit. The first floor is reserved for men and the second for women. You'll be given linen, towels, and a locker in which to keep your things. Be sure to bring along your bathing suit because the bath circuit, or a series of baths, are shared spaces.

  • Was my first time at an American Bathhouse, was great. Ricky took care of me without hovering over me. I was able to completely relax and enjoy this place. I do not remember the name of my message guy but, he did a fantastic job of stretching my muscles out. I will come back again and highly recommend it.
  • This was my first trip to a bath house. Latoya was my attendant. She explained everything very well and was so polite. Everything is done with discretion and never felt awkward. The hot bath is 110 degrees and very warm. Enjoyed the iced mineral water while soaking. Then go to the hot towel station. You lie on hot towels and are covered with hot towels. An ice cold towel is applied to your face. Wonderful! Then you get a wonderful relaxing massage. A great experience. Latoya was great!
