Original Mod:  https://www.nexusmods.com/skyrim/mods/27489

How does this differ from original mod?
  1. Removed Vanilla NPC edits. Therefore no more grey/black face bugs.
  2. Using the baths/saunas now have meaning. Player gains a "Relaxed Disposition" active effect when using facilities that improves skill leveling, and bargaining prices for 12 hours.
  3. Adds permanent bath patrons to bathhouses. NPCs without the hassle of incompatibilities of NPC overhauls.

Open Permissions  - Thanks to Maxinuz for the open permissions. Thanks to Harpalus for the fixes and allowing others to share.
Author notes - Actually, the whole mod is based on vanilla meshes. One thing I've edited are some textures, but I don't claim it as my own. So, if you still want to use something from here - feel free.

-- No. The NPCs strip while bathing, but the nudes default to whatever texture/body replaces you have installed.
-- No body replacer installed? Then they will wear underwear. 
-- Nude replacer installed? Then NPCs will be nude.

-- Compatible via Patch in misc files.  Thanks to TeaBag86 for providing the patch. Be sure to give +Kudos if you use the patch

Original Description

Remember yourself travelling a long road and making your way through the frozen Skyrim tundra, fightingdragons and camping outside? Well, I think we all know what it is. And Ialways thought that there is something missing when I return home. Someplace to relax, - but the tavern is not enough for full relaxation in such a cold, windy land. So I decided to add a bathhouse to the each of the cities. I've added one in Markarth, Solitude, Morthal, Whiterun, Dawnstar and Riften. The bathhouses are not just separate buildings or cells. They are closely connected to each city they are in. Each bathhouse has its own name, style (depending on the city's appearance and prosperity) and citizens know about its existence, so they will restthere during the evening after work.

Hoarfrost bathhouse is located in Whiterun, behind Arcadia's Cauldron. It is a small old shack with a steam-room and some space to cool off a bit. It was built on the initiative of the Battle-Born clan many years ago, and they are still its rightful owners. They allow everyone to use it freely.

Riften's bathhouse is located in the basement of Bee And Barb tavern. Talen has always wanted to provide customers with a good sauna,
and not so long ago he and Kirava were able to finish the establishment.It is free for all wishing to visit it. Even Maven likes to rest there
at night.

Because of the wet climate in Hjaalmarch, the people in Morthal prefer to stay dry. They initially opposed to opening a bathhouse. But when the idea of making a bathhouse with healing abilities sprung to life, that soon changed. The water in the bathhouse is said to be infused with special herbs; a secret recipe known only by the owner. Whatever it is, it certainly works against pain in body and mind.

Windhelm bathhouse is called Njári Haftungur and has quite the story... Fragments of an old books that were found in Windhelm’s libraries state the following: "Nords are great lovers and connoisseurs of a traditional Nordic sauna, so having it in Windhelm wasnot up for discussion. It was built during the First Era, and placed just next to the Palace of the Kings, so the Jarl could visit it as he wished. Many years passed and the Jarls changed, but Njári Haftungur wasstill a very appreciated place to relax. […] The dark times touched even Njári Haftungur. During the Second Era, on year 328, the whole noble family was slaughtered by conspirators right in the steam-room. The tragedy lead to a decline in visiting customers, and ultimately the house went out of business, – for what would be 30 years. [...] Nobody knows what "Njári Haftungur" means. All we know is that the name was
formed after the ancient fisher's adage: "Fornslad fainklu du njári haftungur!". This language is so obsolete that only one in a billion
Nord knows it."Today, Windhelm’s bathhouse is no longer appreciated by the likes of Jarls and nobility. The Jarl doesn’t care for its fate, and Njári Haftungur is maintained by the citizens of Windhelm. They fearthe old traditions would be lost to history if they neglected it. Unfortunately it is in bad condition, and there is nothing to do about it.

Quicksilver miners built this bathhouse for taking a rest after a long day (or even days) of hard work. Some of them believed that good
vapor and warm air could relieve people from their awful nightmares. Butthere is so much work to be done in the mine and so little pay, so the miners just don't have time to spare for the bathhouse. Nevertheless, this place is maintained by Rustleif and his wife, and sometimes it looks as if they are the only ones with time to relax in Dawnstar...

Bahtand Zin Markarth is the name of Markarth's bathhouse. It has a pool, a steam-room and a jet-room. This place is as old as the city, but
it wasn't always a bathhouse. The Dwemer used this place for scientificexperiments - as some kind of an arboretum. When the first people arrived, they felt that this would be the perfect place for a bathhouse.The pipes are connected to the main pipeline so maintenance of the steam systems is easily done. The bard named Kjartan has taken the initiative to entertain the visitors. He also happens to have the title of co-owner of Bahtand Zin Markarth.

Solitude bathhouse is located in the Winking Skeever. It is the newest bathhouse in Skyrim, and was mainly intended to be used by nobility. It has a hot pool, a steam-room with aromatized vapor, comfortable showers and some space to sit and rest.. The Winking SkeeverVaporarium is a place loved by the citizens of Solitude. It’s usually empty during daytime, and full during the evening. If you want to spend some time with yourself, you should visit during the day. As in Markarth, there is also a bard, who will fill the room with lovely musicduring your presence.
Winking Skeever is the only inn in Solitude and is a very prosperous establishment. Because of this they recently made the Vaporarium open for everyone, at no cost.
