As a certified colon hydrotherapist, natural health consultant, and educator, Debi Boyle is passionate about helping her patients to achieve wellness in their lives through colon purification and a wholesome diet. Within the confines of Debi's beach-themed treatment room—complete with soft music, an oil diffuser, and a novelty-size ocean—a slim plastic conduit delivers cleansing currents to her patient's lower bowels. The docile tube rids bodies of toxins and malevolent microorganisms that can be the cause of digestive problems, fatigue, acne, or even anxiety. Debi also helms weight-loss and nutrition classes, teaching students to whittle waists in a healthy way, maximize their metabolism, and maintain long-term health.

Boat Boys’ experienced crew equips seafarers with pontoon and ski boats for sojourns on the serene waters of Buckeye Lake. Vessels launch from the Sayre Brothers Marine, a historic site along the lake that has been servicing the aquatic-adventuring community for more than a century. Take a few laps about lake in a relaxing pontoon boat or zip through the water in a high-horsepower ski boat toting skiers, tubers, or an aerial banner declaring your love for your ex-parole officer. Although smoking and alcohol are not allowed on the vessel, guests may bring pets and, depending on the boat, up to 12 passengers. Wake-makers born after January 1, 1982, are required to take a pre-floating boating education course or present a valid boating license. Rentals are by reservation only.
The Short Story Brasserie is the gastronomic brainchild of owner James Housteau and Executive Chef Robert Harrison, whose shared love for fine wine and European cuisine translates into this escapist’s paradise set along a picturesque country road in rural Ohio. Short Story's seasonal menu invokes the comforting pleasures of fine dining with fabled small plates such as the crispy macaroni and cheese, featuring luxurious lobster and black truffle ($14). Larger plates include the pan-roasted sea scallops with truffled cauliflower custard and lobster hollandaise ($25), whose gussied-up presentation impresses sea-worn Ishmaels and grizzled gourmands alike. Pair the scallops with a chardonnay ($8) or dangle dangerously from a cliff of libations with the No No Martini ($9), a harmonious medley of Grey Goose vodka, pear nectar, and ginger liqueur.
