Bi-Water Farm and Greenhouse scatters family festivities across 20 acres of autumnal farmland during AutumnFest 2011. The friendly staff welcomes up to four campers or one retired barbershop quartet trying to reignite their spark and moseys them to the campfire site, where groups can huddle around a fire pit, gorge on a full-catered hot dog dinner and crash flaming-marshmallow meteors into each other. A slew of attractions including a hayride, 5-acre corn maze, kid-friendly spooky farmhouse, and barnyard zoo with pet bunnies, chicks, and baby ducks swooping down a slide entertains into the evening. Bi-Water Farm & Greenhouse supplies firewood, benches, and a staff member to start the fire and permits campers to bring their own lawn chairs and ghost-story manuscripts.
Ensconcing visitors in spacious rooms surrounded by 30 lush acres of grapevines, Elk Creek Vineyards merges the grandeur of Napa Valley with Kentucky hospitality. Among three discrete lodgings, the Estates' wraparound deck sounds the creak of rocking chairs, the Inn's communial living room welcomes late-night conversation, and the Lodge's private decks open up onto vineyard and lake. Live entertainment Friday through Sunday keeps eardrums occupied, and a gallery exhibits the creations of local artists. During tastings and tours, guests sample the vineyard's products and stroll through the fields, popping grapes to figure out which ones are alcoholic.
Belle Vie MedSpa's staff includes a nurse practitioner, and registered nurses who all work alongside a handful of licensed aestheticians, massage therapists, and skincare specialists to pamper clients with FDA-approved spa treatments. The highly trained team harnesses tools ranging from Botox injections to hair-razing lasers and may recommend products by Obagi and SkinCeuticals for at-home maintenance.
Specialties include vibradermabrasion, which uses stainless-steel paddles instead of the potentially irritating particles used in traditional microdermabrasion treatments. As they smooth skin, the textured paddles also send a vibrating sensation through the body that many clients find relaxing and many Beach Boys find inspirational. When not making the world beautiful one face at a time, the team at Belle Vie MedSpa puts the focus on building a better community, sponsoring a number of charities, including God's Pantry Food Bank, Susan G. Komen for the Cure, and The Nest Center for Women, Children & Families.
Pretty pampering pros at Knockouts Haircuts for Men, which is now under new ownership, spruce up scalps and cosset weary bodies in a sports-theme men’s salon that has been featured on the Today show and The Big Idea with Donny Deutsch on CNBC. As guests sip ice-cold beers or other beverages and watch a game on flat-screen TVs, stylists sculpt sleek, fashionable looks with the salon’s signature six-step Heavyweight haircut. While the stylists shampoo hair or untie chin-strap beards, aestheticians wax backs and chests or refurbish rugged skin with facials and hand treatments. Stationed in private treatment rooms, the salon’s massage therapists promote further relaxation with modalities designed to melt residual tension from gentlemanly handshaking contests.
