Tour starts at 2p and lasts approximately 20 - 30 minutes depending on guest questions.
Then the excitement builds as we drive to the nearby Villa Olivia ski area(1401 W Lake St, Bartlett IL) for a thrilling snowtubing adventure under the stars 4p-6p, $17! After, we will head to the beautiful Eaglewood Resort & Spa in Itasca to spend the night.

Bring your fave wine or other beverage & snacks to share at our Afterparty.

Plan to arrive 30 min before your appointment to check in, change into your spa robe and relax with a cup of tea or juice in the Tranquility Room with other CBPSN members having treatments!
Robin T will be there at 11AM for a mineral scrub, lavendar wrap & a refresher facial. If you are getting a massage, schedule it at least 1 hour after you finish breakfast. A massage on a full stomach can be very uncomfortable. Please complete all spa services by 2:30p if you plan to go to Medieval Times for dinner.

We will have fun bowling 12:30-2:30p at the on-site bowling alley($7/person, limit 12), or take the free shuttle to Woodfield Mall for shopping. Maybe just relax in the lounge with a book, or a game of Spades with other CBPSN friends.
