If you're looking for the right spa getaway location, here are six of the best spas the country has to offer. Choose the one best for you and start browsing the vacation homes available in that area.

1. Canyon Ranch

This immaculate health spa resort in Tucson, Arizona is considered to be the top of the line for ultimate rejuvenation of the body and soul. Get a classic massage or hydrating body scrub and wrap. If sitting around isn't your thing, there's plenty of outdoor activities: hiking, swimming, biking and tennis can keep you active. This is top of the line, so it is a tad pricey, but worth it if you're willing to drop a few bucks.

2. Westglow Resort and Spa

Across the country is the Westglow Resort and Spa in Blowing Rock, North Carolina, another top of the line spa getaway. A great place to refresh yourself, mind, body and spirit. For anyone suffering the winter blues, they're currently offering a Winter Bed and Breakfast Special: you and a guest can enjoy a gourmet breakfast, a candle-lit dinner in their gourmet restaurant and access to spa facilities, fitness and relaxation classes. Just what the doctor ordered.

3. Fuchsia Spa

Embrace your inner god or goddess at Fuchsia Spa in Mesa, Arizona. This spa's claim to fame is that it offers world class relaxation services while also being reasonably priced! All first time visitors can receive a custom facial or massage for under $50, so you don't have to feel guilty about feeling good.

4. Exsalonce Salon and Day Spa

Who says spa getaways are only for girls? Certainly not male clientele of Exsalonce in Chicago, Illinois, which makes up 40% of its customers. Another shockingly affordable spa getaway, Exsalonce offers "frou-frou free" spa treatments like the Deep Tissue Sports Massage or the unique Beer Enzyme Facial.

5. Carneros Inn

Not totally unlike the beer facial, this "Wine Spa" makes use of the revitalizing powers of wine in the beautiful Napa Valley. They use oils and fragrances processed from local grapes, making this a unique experience for fans of wine and relaxing. There's wine available for drinking, too.

6. Silver Star Mountain Resort and Spa

The quaint British Columbia town of Silver Star Mountain is home to another fantastic wine spa. This one offers Vinotherapy Massages (your choice of red or white) and exfoliating scrubs that utilize grape seeds from a local winery. If you start feeling restless, there's also plenty of skiing and outdoor activities in the winter months to keep you active.

You'll have room to spare, tons of privacy, and just enough peace and quiet to get back to feeling like yourself again.
