Once domiciles are decked out, visitors can adorn themselves with jewelry from Sweet Bird Studio, selections of Double D clothing, or a classy pair of Old Gringo boots ($440+) available in a variety of bucolic flavors.
The staff at Asporea seeks to destress guests with a slate of body wraps and customized full-body massages. To unearth stubborn knots, the spa's massage therapists call on a variety of techniques, such as the strokes of effleurage, the percussive techniques of tapotement, and vibration, which relies on shaking sleeping muscles awake so they stop dreaming about human pretzels. Beyond their standard strokes, the professionals can augment massages with tension-melting hot stones and skin-softening paraffin wax.
LifeStyles’ showrooms brim with upscale light fixtures, furniture, and accessories that send style and faux sunlight streaming throughout abodes.

Patrons can brighten a dim dining room with a five-bulb walnut chandelier ($119) or julienne a piñata with the blades of a lighted ceiling fan ($64.95+).

In addition to luminary aids, Lifestyles' showrooms boast classic furniture pieces, such as cabinetry, chairs, and tables.
Owned by Don and Leslie Jones, Savory Chef delivers innovative cooking in a warm and casual atmosphere. First opened as a kitchen accessories store and cooking school, Savory Chef's café features an open-style kitchen that showcases head chef Scott VanTuyl and his team of ingredient crafters as they prepare homemade breads, pastas, and desserts. A cheese and sundry fruit plate ($6.99) begins dinners with a choose-your-own-adventure of four cheeses, pairing each with deviously delicious partners in crime: fruit, nuts, and quince. A hearty chunk of toasted foccacia accompanies the grilled spinach salad, which comes drizzled with a truffled red wine vinaigrette ($5.99). The wooden dinner tables ably hold the heft of the grilled center-cut pork chop plate ($14.99) with sweet potato puree, honeycrisp apples, shaved fennel, and creamed swiss chard. Smoked duck breast ($19.99) travels with a carryon bag of blue cheese mashed potatoes, caramelized beets, and an ergonomically conscious pomegranate reduction.
