Daniel Webster was a famous 19th-century U.S. lawyer and politician. So legendary was his eloquence, that a story was written called 'The Devil and Daniel Webster' in which Webster defeats Lucifer in a court case for a man's soul. However, the Plum Beach Spa at the Dan'l Webster Inn and Spa (Sandwich, M.A.) will do anything but bedevil you, thanks to its many soothing treatments. (This historic inn is named for Webster, who stayed at the tavern on this site regularly between 1815 and 1851.) Among its luxuries are massages, various body treatments, facials and add-ons, waxing, hand & foot treatments, a Men's Spa, and bridal services.
