True to its location on the second and third floors of Firehouse Place, All Seasons Salon and Day Spa elevates minds and bodies with nature-inspired spa treatments. Goldwell and Aveda products line the shelves in a reception area whose floral décor vies for attention with the purses, clothes, shoes, and handcrafted Elle Cosmetics peeking out from the designer boutique area next door. Back in the pedicure nook, toes take baths in basins of warm water before shedding their calluses and ferrying their owners to one of the nearby manicure stations, where technicians brush fingernails with vibrant OPI polishes. Soft candle lights flicker against the walls of private aesthetic and massage rooms, while out on the salon floor stylists revivify hair with custom European coloring techniques. During the wedding season, the spa’s team tends to more than 75 bridal parties, painting nails, styling strands, and dipping drab white dresses in their vibrant hair dyes.
York's sandy beaches and iconic rocky shores make it an idyllic walking town. The Nubble Lighthouse, a 1.5-mile stroll east of the hotel, ascends from a small, rocky island off the northeastern shore of Cape Neddick. This red-roofed landmark, encased by a cast iron shell, flashes a red beacon every six seconds to remind seafarers to call their mothers. Continuing along the coast, visitors traverse the Cliff Walk, a trail lined by wildflowers and set against a dramatic backdrop of the rugged Atlantic shore. Stationed an 8-minute drive from the hotel, York Harbor and York Village charm travelers with historical buildings and quaint New England cafés. This quiet shopping district houses the Museums of Old York, a collection of nine historical sites including Old Gaol, a former 18th-century prison outfitted with cells and dungeons, and the Emerson-Wilcox House, which displays 12 period room settings and two antique galleries.
Shellie Morin always loved helping people, a passion that attracted her to customer-service jobs most of her adult life. It wasn’t until 2006, after her husband suggested giving massage therapy a try, that she found her true calling. Since then, Shellie has gone on to open her own massage-therapy clinic: Sense-Sational Massage. Here, she offers her expertise in five massage techniques: Swedish, bamboo-fusion, hot-stone, fibromyalgia, and seated-chair massage. Clients can choose their massage prior to their appointments, or stop in for a quick talk with Shellie, who can help them decide based on their ailments. For example, stressed clients with tension throughout their entire body may benefit from the long and flowing Swedish massage techniques, while those with fibromyalgia—like Shellie herself—can relax with a tailored session designed to lessen flare ups and decrease overall pain.
