I've come a long way since then, and as my travels have taken me to some of New England's wonderful spas, I've been massaged with hot stones, slathered with rose oil, rolled with bamboo and even scrubbed with maple sugar. I'll admit, however, that I still need coaching when it comes to making time for me a priority. When I decided at the start of 2005 that I needed a break from diapers and deadlines, I called Jessica, who was also ready for a diversion from her busy travel and work schedule.
The Dan'l Webster Inn, with its intimate spa, fine dining, comfortable rooms and proximity to shops and beaches, provided the ideal setting for a girls' getaway. The 54-room inn is located in Sandwich, Massachusetts, the oldest town on Cape Cod. The Cape may be crawling with families in the summertime, but when winter arrives, it is a serene spot for adults to re-connect and relax.
