Good News. The spa will be open for your appointments on Thursday afternoon. Click here for policies and practices during Covid. The current spa menu is included here. The spa will be open Thursday afternoon, by appointment only and will only be offering massages and body treatments. Interested individuals can email their name and number to email@example.com. You will receive a call back to schedule an appointment and review policies and procedures.
If there is not enough interest in the spa, they reserve the right to cancel the offering. There is a lot involved in sanitizing the spa before opening, in addition to sanitizing between appointments.
Private Rooftop Party:
Enjoy an afternoon on Carroll Daniel’s rooftop with the best views of the downtown Gainesville district. Sit back and relax on your charter bus ride from Legacy Lodge to downtown Gainesville. Upon arrival, you will be greeted by the sounds of live music, while you cool down with a local craft beer provided by: Left Nut Brewing (Gainesville), Terrapin Beer Co (Athens), Creature Comforts (Athens) and Tantrum Brewing Company (Cleveland) and fill up on local artisan snacks and treats. When you have had your fill, enjoy a walking tour and up-close look at five downtown development projects currently underway. There will also be time for a little retail therapy on Gainesville’s historic square. Cheers!
Please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org. The bus will leave from the front of the hotel at the noon adjournment of the morning meetings and return by 4:30pm in time to get ready for the reception.
