Mountains and Sun

The Spa Studio Adirondacks LLC is a small family owned, and operated day spa located in the Adirondack foothills, since 2006! What started as a small studio, grew over many years and locations. We most recently settled in our new space in Queensbury after a long shut down due to Covid-19, and are working hard to adapt to the new normal! We offer unique spa services in a cozy Adirondack decor, and our practitioners are all highly trained and experienced to give each a client a customized approach to their health and beauty.
