This time of year, it's hard to imagine a better way to recuperate from a long day hanging decorations and power shopping than a soak in a private hot tub. Indoors or out, the bubbles soothe more than tired muscles.

438 Ground Hog College Road, West Chester
$1,950,000
Taxes:
$2,096 monthly
Take me away: The private spa in this West Chester manse includes its own waterfall and sprawling views. If the water gets too warm in the hot tub, the indoor pool is a few feet away – and conveniently located adjacent to a kitchenette. Bonus: work up the need for a soak riding one of the horses from the four-stall barn on the property on your private riding ring.

109 Brooke Farm Road, St. Davids
$2,250,000
Taxes:
$2,659 monthly
Take me away: The outdoor hot tub at this six-bedroom home includes its own rock formation and lush landscaping. Views in the other direction include rolling hills and lots of mature trees. Inside, the property is just as impressive, with beautiful finishes and a stunning en-suite master.

1001 W. Indian Creek Road, Wynnewood
$839,000
Taxes:
$1,285 monthly
Take me away: The indoor hot tub on the enclosed patio of this five-bedroom home is almost as amazing as the 70s-style private bar in the lower level. The rest of the finishes and décor should be seen to be believed.
