Solebury-based luxury day spa Nurture will move a short distance to a much larger facility at 31 W. Ferry St. in downtown New Hope in the summer of 2017, if all goes according to plan.

Nurture Spa Owner and President Carolyn Holdsworth is partnering with New Hope business owners Frank Cretella and Scott Kelley to help make it all happen.

Proposed plans appear to leave much of the building’s character intact as typically seen from the street, although views from the the Canal Street residential development and the Delaware Canal will change with construction of a 3,800 square foot, three-story addition to the rear of the building. Main entry doors and decks may be widened or relocated, as well.

“I am thrilled to offer a true destination spa experience to our existing and future clientele,” said Holdsworth. “Not only will we offer an expanded spa services menu and retail boutique, but the larger space will allow us to support the demand from larger groups who want to spend ‘a day at the spa’ in New Hope.”

Nurture Spa opened its doors in 2005 with a 2,100 square foot spa, expanded in 2007 into a 3,500 square foot facility, and hopes to more than double its space at the proposed location, confirmed Holdsworth.

The new facility will boast 14 treatment rooms, an expansive nail lounge, men’s and women’s locker rooms, several relaxation areas and a large retail store, she said.

The spa will also bring several new jobs to New Hope, including spa therapists and customer service personnel.

Cretella and Jersey City Developer Landmark Hospitality are moving forward with a dramatic overhaul of the landmark Logan Inn that it purchased in 2015. Landmark explored developing a spa near its Hotel du Village property in Solebury in 2013.

Kelley has been involved with the development of 46 N. Main St. and the former Odette’s site in New Hope, among other business ventures.

The proposed new Nurture Spa could expect to draw customers staying at the Logan Inn, as well as the upscale boutique hotel at Odette’s, owners confirmed.

  • As for parking they are marketing this to visitors at those locations mentioned and not locals. This is a disappointment. I think its time for locals to embrace the shopping centers and demand that they become more of a meeting place like the Princeton Shopping Center. The old Thriftway shopping center is depressing and the Giant shopping area is so boring. It would be nice if there were a park like setting or patio at both centers where people can meet or sit down, eat and chat. This would be nice for people of all ages. As it is, they are just a place to drive to, shop, get back in your car. Talking in the parking lot is boring. With no meters to worry about i think it would be great for the wellbeing of everyone.
