The Space

Waterside Day Spa embodies the cheerful and charming experience of downtown Steamboat Springs.

From the moment you are able to park with ease alongside the Yampa River, and walk through the doors of our red brick building, we hope that you have that moment of "ahhh, it's good to be here" and in these moment we share together, you are able to tune out the worries of everyday life and simply enjoy yourself.

Weather you have chosen to join us in the spa for restorative skin care and body treatments, or in the salon for upbeat hair styling and nail care, our providers will look forward to meeting you and welcoming you back into our space, time after time. We are home to the first and only Halotherapy Salt Suite in Steamboat Springs and love to share this with out guests whenever possible. Covered in 750 lbs of beautiful pink and white himalayan salt, our Salt Room provides a sanctuary to relax in a beautiful and cozy atmosphere.

Our space is also equipped with HEPA air filtration used year round, and we especially enjoy opening all the doors and windows to let in that beautiful fresh Colorado breeze when the weather allows.

A Letter From The Owner

Dear Friends,

I am so excited to share Waterside, a Day Spa, Salon, and Salt Room, with our community and guests! This flame, my love for the wellness industry, sparked as a child. I grew up wanting to learn all about makeup, energy work, skin care, and studying herbs to learn their therapeutic benefits – blending my own masks, only to test them on my younger brother. (By the way, thank you Josh!) I started working in the hospitality and wellness industry in 2006 as a concierge, massage therapist, reiki practitioner, and spa manager in various settings. Though those journeys, I have met so many incredible humans.

At Waterside Day Spa, the most important thing to me, is to create an atmosphere where both our staff and guests look forward to spending their time- a community of accepting and supportive people, that genuinely care and want what is best for each other. Easier said than done. Today, I can honestly say, 7 years into owning Waterside Day Spa, that we have reached a very special turning point. There is trust, kindness, teamwork, fun and a whole lot of amazing talent at Waterside Day Spa. Some days, I just want to shout it from the rooftops how much I love all of the women that I am lucky enough to spend my days with.  It brings me so much joy to connect our guests, locals and visitors, with providers that care. Speaking on behalf of our entire team, we all look forward to meeting you!

With Mountains of Gratitude,

Lexi Machiela,
Owner Waterside Day Spa & Salon
