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.

  • Very disappointed, We paid $40 each to take a 15 min bath with an additional hip bath. There was nothing relaxing about this atmosphere. I felt more like I was in a heard of sheep, being moved from...

  • My wife enjoyed a deluxe treatment morning on August 1st. Totally worth the price and time. She was a relaxed and happy camper! Chris M San Antonio, TX

  • I love having a day spa experience here. They always make you feel welcome. I am a pretty modest person and have never felt exposed here. They work at maintaining the dignity of their clients throughout the spa experience. Friday, I left my wedding ring in the locker hanging on the hook & didn’t think about it until I took a shower at home in southern Louisiana that same night. I jumped up at 8am and called them. They found it & are mailing it. I’m so relieved.
  • Myself and my granddaughter (15) had the full spa experience... heavenly, so relaxing from the bath to the hotbox, the massage... everything was glorious and relaxing... no photos inside (people are nude and bathing) but I highly recommend... children must be able to go through the experience alone because everything is personal and YES!!! granddaughter thought it was as relaxing as myself
  • We visited here and got the package including the bath and massage. We had a long wait but they were upfront about that possibility. Once it was our turn, the bath soak was interesting to experience. They offered a tub soak, an experience with warming towels, sitz bath and a sauna. The male attendant did a great job of looking after my son (13) who went with us and made sure he was not too overheated. My daughter (17) and I were on the women’s side, and I wish they would have kept us together. The massages were very nice for everyone.
  • This place does not have air conditioning. I have not seen anyone post that yet. It's very hot in the entire place. If you have heat sensitivity skip this. It's one very hot treatment after another with no place to cool off. Also I'm writing this in July so it's so hot outside too. 5 stars for the staff , they are very attentive and friendly. Also they only had 6 baths operating at the time I was there. It was a very long wait. An hour outside wait and another hour wait in a cramped hot locker room in a sheet. Also I don't mind nudity but if you do you my not like this. You are completely naked in front of several people during the whole process.
  • An amazing experience. They are understaffed ( as is every place) but the staff they have is unbelievable! Latoya took care of all four of us and others at the same time. Very attentive. No one missed out .
