With a Stress Buster Escape package, you’ll arrive at Heartland Spa between 2:30 and 4 p.m. on a Wednesday or Friday and embark on a tour and orientation. Then enjoy a healthy dinner and a good night’s sleep in a carriage house guest room. The following day, water aerobics, tai chi, and yoga exercise classes await, as well as a nutritious breakfast and lunch. A massage or spa services (included with some deal options)—such as facials and manicures—rejuvenate guests. Upgrades are available for Manor House rooms with a private bath.
A former dairy farm may seem like an unusual place to open a health-and-wellness retreat. Yet in 1983, Heartland Spa transformed one into a holistic spa resort and garnered national attention, due in part to one famous guest: Oprah Winfrey. Surrounded by 32 acres of woodland on a 3-acre lake, the spa has been praised for its "uniquely Midwestern, unpretentious environment" by the Chicago Sun-Times. Its five-bedroom, two-bathroom Carriage House offers a peaceful retreat each evening. And to promote healthy eating, the resident chef creates nutritious meals, such as breakfasts that may include egg-white frittatas, oatmeal, or peanut-butter-and-banana muffins. Heartland Spa & Fitness Resort’s two-to-one staff-to-guest ratio ensures all guests are supported and pampered as they unwind during their stay. The red barn and surrounding grounds house workout facilities and a spa and salon, replete with an indoor pool. An underground tunnel even connects the manor to the spa barn. Yoga, Pilates, tai chi, cardio kickboxing, and other fitness classes take place throughout the day, and a locker room fully equipped with a sauna and hot tub makes for a relaxing reprieve. Spa services also await, including an aromatherapy manicure or a Swedish massage.
