Mineral Spring Spa in New England?

Does anyone know if there are natural mineral spring baths in the New England area? I'm looking for something similar to what you would find in Saratoga Springs. I'm thinking of something similar to The Lincoln Spa and Baths & The Roosevelt Spa and Baths. I believe the water supposedly comes from a true natural sparkling/ carbonated water source and then you sit in this kind of old world tub for a medicinal type soak...... the setting is old, somewhat European and basic.

Not sure if such a thing even exists in New England??

Never heard of one in New England. You might try google and see what pops up. Sounds more like a West Coast idea and there are several not far from San Francisco.

Two threads on the same topic on the same day.

Saratoga Springs you already know about. FYI, it's not carbonated (bubbly), but rather quite heavy on the minerals.

ILUVPIARIS - I am happy to pass it along although I have never been to Dillon's myself and I also was born and raised here in MA. I have heard of it because as a kid I remember my father and grandfather talking about the Jewish older men who went to the "shvitz" in Chelsea regularly.

Also, I love natural hot springs and outdoor heated pools open year round. I have actually posted here on Fodors for advise for such places when I have planned trips around hot springs.
