Stonedrift Spa: A Serene Haven for a Mom’s Getaway in Galena, Illinois
Nestled in the picturesque town of Galena, Illinois, Stonedrift Spa provides an oasis for moms who want a break from their daily routines. This tranquil retreat offers a number of signature spa treatments tailored to cater to every aspect of a mother’s well-being. With its beautiful setting, luxurious amenities, and skilled therapists, Stonedrift Spa promises a perfect escape for moms looking to recharge, relax, and reconnect with themselves.
Location and Ambiance
In late 2022, the destination Stonedrift Spa relocated with an entirely new look to the Eagle Ridge Resort & Spa property in The Galena Territory. With that move, the size of the spa increased from 3,500 to more than 12,000 square feet which included new relaxation spaces, treatment rooms, earthly furnishings, high ceilings, raw wood, natural stone, and much more. When you arrive at the spa’s new standalone location, guests are greeted by warm, friendly staff, and soft music. You instantly feel at ease.
After you check in and verify the services you will be receiving you will be guided to the locker room. Get ready to relax! Each locker is stocked with a heavy and cozy robe along with slippers. After your treatments, you are encouraged to use one of their many amenities including a steam room, shower, changing rooms, bathroom, and vanities stocked with all of the necessities.
Variety of Treatments
The new Stonedrift Spa location offers an extensive menu of treatments designed to address the specific needs of everyone. Whether it’s a Swedish massage to melt away tension, a soothing facial to rejuvenate tired skin, or a body wrap to detoxify and nourish, the spa offers a diverse range of options. Specialized prenatal massages are also available for expectant mothers, providing a safe and comfortable way to relax during pregnancy.
I enjoyed an amazing Luna Facial during my visit. It is not like any other facial treatment! I left feeling so relaxed and my skin was glowing. I loved the little card the spa professional gives at the end that shares the products they use and recommend. You can purchase the products in their on-site retail boutique which includes everything from premium skincare products, essential oils, and other wellness items to continue a self-care routine after you leave.
You can view the full menu of the number of services they offer including massages, unique wellness offerings, and advanced body treatments on their website.

The Relaxation Room
I could have spent my whole day in this tranquil environment that encouraged complete relaxation surrounded by earthy furnishings. The room was beautiful, and calm and offered amazing views of the resort’s grounds. Guests are encouraged to spend time before and after their treatments. They offer water, tea, and snacks as well. The wave chairs were definitely a highlight. Who knew these chairs could be so heavenly? I could have napped all day!
