The Buckstaff Bathhouse is located along the historic area of the Hot Springs National Park in Arkansas and has been a fully operational and functioning bathhouse since 1912. Visitors may take part in the therapeutic waters and thermal mineral baths offers at the bathhouse. For centuries, travelers have been arriving at the bathhouse in the hopes to cure common ailments such as arthritis, bursitis, gout, and rheumatoid arthritis. Weary travelers would stop off at the bathhouse to relax and unwind before hitting the trail. Today the bathhouse is a vacation destination for couples and businessmen on work related travels.
Services offered at the bathhouse include mineral baths and Swedish style massages. Private individual tubs are available with an all men's facility located on the first floor and an all women's area on the second floor. Each tub is fully equipped with its own whirlpool that can be used while the bath is taken. Twenty minute baths are available at a maximum temperature of 100 degrees. Hot packs are also available as well as ten minute sitz baths, and steam and vapor cabinets. The entire bathing process takes approximately one and a half hours and slightly longer during peak hours.
