Bay seniors, in fact all seniors, have a penchant for soaking in very hot water. We have for generations. A testimony for our long commitment to sulfur baths is Vichy Springs in Ukiah which was a resort built shortly after gold was discovered. It’s in remarkable shape today considering that some of its 26 rooms and cottages go back to in 1852. Vichy enjoys the distinction of being the only carbonated mineral baths in North America. It’s not exactly Canyon Ranch but they do offer massages, facials and an Olympic pool. Most impressive are the surrounding 700 private acres of gardens, both tame and wild,rich with meadows, streams and waterfalls. Prices starting at $205 a night. Discounts for seniors.
