Life’s hustle and bustle keeps people on the move. Work, school, kids and errands leave little time for anything else.

Edie Bullard, owner of Time Out, wants all that worry and stress to melt away at her private resort and spa in Camino. The cosmetologist by trade celebrates 20 years of pampering this coming September. Bullard opened the business in her mother’s spacious home after her children left the nest, turning the 10-acre property into a relaxing oasis.

“I love the business as much today as I did the when I opened,” Bullard said.

Time Out offers numerous packages designed to melt away women’s cares. Bullard’s trained and caring staff spoil guests from head to toe with massages, facials, manicures, pedicures, Vichy showers (warm, horizontal showers that enhance body treatments, improve circulation and hydrate skin) and more. Some packages include overnight stays in the Dolphin, Pink or Green rooms or the Grand Suite. Men are welcome for afternoon services and Time Out also celebrates Father’s Day with special packages that include cigars, wine and a gentleman’s feast.

Bullard helped develop the spa’s own Grape Indulgence body scrub and sells several spa products boasting the Time Out name. She also has her own wine label, a house drink — cranberry juice with a splash of champagne — and homemade fudge ready to serve up at a moment’s notice. Time Out also caters to clients with special diets and health requirements. The spa decor is homey, like Grandma’s house, Bullard said, and the view of a neighboring vineyard and the Sierra Nevada mountains is unforgettable. Enjoy it in the outdoor hot tub.

Guests don’t have to lift a finger, Bullard stressed. “We wait on (them) all day long. It’s just a little Cinderella’s palace” complete with comfy robes, fresh towels, delicious meals and warm beds. This year, the palace is open Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays (groups of five or more may opt for Wednesday/Thursday packages) until Dec. 21.

The goal, according to Bullard, is for each client to leave “relaxed, rejuvenated and pampered.”

That goal has made Time Out a “must stay” for women over the years. Some clients have come for treatments every year since Bullard opened her doors though she doesn’t take much credit for her business’ success.

“My staff is what makes it happen,” said Bullard, who oversees about 14 spa professionals. “My girls are very innovative. They offer stellar services.”

Natalie from Citrus Heights wrote in an online review, “I recommend Time Out Spa! I have been there a few times and every time myself and whomever I am with are always made to feel as if we are queens! Everyone is always very pleasant and accommodating ….  Thank you Time Out for making every trip there a wonderful experience! I will be back soon!”

When she’s not pampering her clients Bullard spends time at an easel, painting watercolors for a noble cause. Every year she donates her art to the annual Mulegul Scholarship Fund auction in Baja. Bullard’s watercolors also grace the spa’s walls, vibrant and soothing pictures that add to the ambiance.

Time Out is located at 2452 Apple Vista Lane in Camino. Reservations accepted by telephone only; call 530-644-0314. For more information visit timeoutspa.com and watch for the launch of the spa’s mobile app.
