What You'll Get
Harried city dwellers have long fled to the countryside to seek solace, freshly killed meat, and homespun rust-proofing advice. Take a rural respite with today's Groupon to The Heartland Spa & Fitness Resort, a health-and-fitness sanctuary in Gilman, about 90 miles south of Chicago. Choose between the following options:
- For $199, you get the 24-hour stress-buster retreat (a $399 value).
- For $350, you get the 24-hour stress-buster retreat for two people and a double-occupancy room (a $700 value).
The Heartland Spa & Fitness Resort lets uptight urbanites leave the hectic city behind with elegant and epicurean escape packages. Peaceful feelings will begin as you pull into the spa, located on a former dairy farm in Gilman. Once at the spa, you'll be treated to a 40-minute full-body massage and a healthy, home-cooked dinner, followed by a restful night in a rustic room where the lack of phones, TVs, Internet connections, and marching bands virtually guarantees a good night's slumber.
The next day starts with breakfast, followed by your choice of activities, from yoga and dance classes to tai chi and aquatic aerobics. Or just take a quiet walk around the man-made lake, taking care not to disrupt local truants fishing with cane poles baited with old iPods. Heartland's two-to-one staff-to-guest ratio virtually assures adequate pampering and ample assistance in meeting your trip goals, freeing you to explore the afternoon. When lunch saunters toward your mouth, it will be dressed in low-calorie, heart-friendly cuisine that befits Heartland's commitment to nutritious, practical, and delicious dining. The value of this deal can be applied toward upgraded stay in the Manor House.
The 24-hour stress-buster retreat check-in starts after 2 p.m., and guests must check out by 5 p.m. the second day. Guests can only check in on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday, or Sunday, and cannot combine Groupons to add additional nights, with an exception for customers who wish to combine the Groupon price with existing two-, three-, or five-night specials.
Although The The Heartland Spa & Fitness Resort sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon offers the best deal available.

About Heartland Wellness Retreat and Spa
The Heartland Wellness Retreat and Spa offers all-inclusive 2, 3, 5, and 7-night getaways as well as all-day (7 am to 8 pm) packages. All retreat packages include pampering spa services from an extraordinary staff, meals designed for optimal nutrition and weight loss, fitness classes, and wellness programming.

Since 1983, the Heartland has been helping people get away from it all, make lasting lifestyle changes, and reboot healthy habits. While it garnered national attention when Oprah visited the former location in Gilman Illinois, many enjoy the new location in the heart of Lake Geneva, steps from beautiful Geneva Lake. Enjoy a "smart vacation" in the Midwest's most luxurious resort town! The professional staff at the Heartland takes great pride in helping our guests relax, make and meet wellness goals, and learn to take better care of themselves. One of most common comments from departing guests is, "This was life changing!"
