Rooftop relaxation with lakeside views…
Mill Falls at the Lake – a timeless, all-season resort set on Lake Winnipesaukee in the quaint town of Meredith, New Hampshire – has announced the official debut of its award-winning Cascade Spa’s brand-new outdoor spa deck addition. The rooftop spa deck will feature a fireplace for the cooler months, shower, and post-treatment relaxation area, creating the perfect setting for guests to unwind with restorative wellness rituals and personalized treatments complemented by the natural surroundings of New Hampshire’s stunning Lakes Region.
The outdoor spa deck takes inspiration from the surrounding area, giving guests the opportunity to take their Cascade Spa experience outside to connect with nature and the calming ambiance of the gorgeous lake, chirping birds, and rustling leaves. Guests can wash away any stresses in the unique rustic shower, before beginning their wellness journey in the outdoor treatment area, which offers curtain closures for privacy but also fully open to the breathtaking view and fresh lake air.
