The other reviews are right - this is more like a camp than a spa.

The check-in process was poor, and then we were surprised that there were no snacks or water available. So we made a 7-mile drive to town and stocked up on snacks for the evening. The meals, though, were awesome - impeccably cooked and delicious. We had hoped for private dining, but ate in a communal-style dining room - which wasn't so bad after all.

The slow stretch class was good, but wasn't really what we expected. Same for the other exercise classes. The teacher was nice, but didn't seem to take the class seriously. At the end of the class, we didn't know when the class was done because the teacher had chatted with the other guests and when they kind of let the exercise wane off, we realized the classes were over.

We stayed in the "manor" and all the decor was terribly outdated - 1960s/1970s tiles, walls, accessories, bedding, etc. Although we both are outdoor enthusiasts, we found the conditions to not be so sanitary (they weren't filthy, either - just in between). There indeed are no clocks, which is not a big deal - but I found it ironic they gave us schedules and all, yet had no clocks.

I took my husband here for his birthday and chose spa services in advance. I am almost 9 months pregnant, and at no point did anyone tell me the herbal wrap wasn't safe for me (not even when I asked the manager on the phone two months prior to the visit) until I asked the spa person. She said simply and unfriendly, "It is very hot." Later, my husband got the herbal wrap and had burns all over his body - what if I hadn't asked about the herbal wrap? I shudder to think of how it could have harmed or even killed my unborn baby. I asked to change my option, and was given two alternate choices: a hand massage or a scalp massage - and I don't think either was the equivalent of a herbal wrap. I chose the scalp massage and after a 10-minute massage (instead of 20 minutes or 25 minutes), I was left with oil in my hair I had to wash off myself in my room, after walking upstairs and having people see me with oily hair. The facial was great, though, done by a different person.

Overall, this is a decent budget-wise choice for people who like rustic surroundings. But there is a lot left to be desired. The next spa we go to will be in a modern facility with the little details that count - fresh water, snacks (bananas, nuts, apples, whatever), updated decor and amenities, FRIENDLY people, and CLEAN rooms. Even the in-room trail map was shoddy, so we ended up not hiking because we couldn't find any of the trails. We left without anyone bidding us farewell because nobody was around to see us off.

We did make some new friends with the other three guests, and they were great company. Overall, I don't think this "spa" is worth the money at this point.

I just retuned from a visit to the Birdwing Spa in Litchfield MN. I cannot even begin to explain how unsatisfactory this place is to visit. It is poorly maintained and hasn't been updated in 20 years. The staff is young or unfriendly. The food is marginal and is not spa cuisine. I have been to Miraval and Bonaventure and I didn't expect that level of service but I also didn't expect to feel ripped off, unwelcome and hungry. There is only water, coffee and tea to drink. My room was in the basement (?????) of the main building, no TV, no radio, no clock, a shared bathroom, walmart towels, no hair dryer, 25 watt bulbs in the bathroom. The "waiting room" for the "spa" services spelled like an uncleaned fireplace. The swimming pool and whirlpool had not been cleaned the entire length of my stay. The "fitness" facility spelled of body odor, sweat, mold and mildew. The spa manager was curt and unfriendly. The spa brochure is misleading and actually fradulent in my opinion. There are no lawn games. The bikes are old and falling apart. The exercise equipment is old. Everything smells bad and there are spider webs and dead bugs on all of the dirty windows. There is a filthy fish tank with one fish in it. We all prayed that he wouldn't end up a dinner some night. I was ripped off!!!!!
