To get truly refreshed while keeping a low-carbon profile, go for a vacation at Breitenbush Hot Springs in Detroit, Oregon. The retreat, located in a 154-acre wildlife preserve, offers three natural pools and four spiral tubs that take advantage of the legendary healing powers of the hot springs; after your soak, refuel with organic, vegetarian meals, daily stretching and yoga sessions, a 90-minute massage. or a local hike. The hot springs provide enough power for the resort to be off-grid, plus building lumber came from locally fallen trees and the resort steers clear of energy-sucking appliances (such as clothes and hair dryers). The end result is way more relaxing than a manicure.
