Couples escape to Springfield Spas to lose themselves in the hot tubs that occupy its 10 private rooms. Duos can slip into a bubbling hot tub and adjust the temperature to the level they find most suitable for relaxing muscles, invigorating circulation, and poaching eggs. Some themed rooms transport guests to such tranquil places as gardens or beaches, whereas others are decorated with zen-inspired paintings or Oregon Ducks gear. As their troubles dissipate, tandems can contemplate the open sky in the select rooms that feature half or open roofs. Each room comes equipped with a radio and shower, and some rooms can accommodate mp3 players or modestly sized orchestras. The one-hour getaways spare couples the expense of taking more elaborate vacations and the hassle of filling their attics with hot water when they want quick respite.
