Great time at this magical place. I recommend getting the room with the hot tub during winter. Sitting in it while it’s snowing was magical. Beautiful place with a great feel to it and a small dog that will steal your heart

Mary Jo’s massages were the best I have ever had. If your looking for therapeutic or a plain massage Vibrant Living is the place. The rooms are nice and well equipped. Steve’s food was healthy and delicious.
