Japanese-style B&B in Virginia

At the Pembroke Springs Retreat in northern Virginia, you can soak away the stress in the large ofuro (bath) at this authentic Japanese ryokan (traditional inn).

Just looking at this photo makes me long for a nice, soothing dip in the muscle-relaxing hot water. Even in this day of high-tech gadgetry, a hot bath is still one of the best ways to relieve the day's stress.
