Thank you for accommodating us with regard to a spa service time together. Never having been there, having a dual time automatically reserved would have been ideal. Also being informed of the ability to schedule an appointment prior to check in would have helped us squeeze just a little but more out of our 24 hours. We truly enjoyed our stay, and are looking forward to another getaway in the winter or spring!

It is time to update your accommodations. The rooms are decorated from the 80's and 90's and do not reflect the culture of the retreat. The main floor needs updating as well. This will allow you to keep pace with others in the marketplace and make it a topnotch destination for rest and renewal you have the awesome staff members, you just need the update!

Great staff, great food. Skip the work out clothes. Maybe keep them as an offer for longer term stay guests. They date the facilty more than anything.

What You'll Get

Health-and-Wellness Retreat in Lakeside Setting

A former dairy farm may seem like an unusual choice to open a health-and-wellness retreat. Yet in 1983, Heartland Spa & Fitness Resort transformed one into a holistic spa center and garnered national attention—perhaps due in part to one famous guest, Oprah Winfrey. Surrounded by 32 acres of woodlands on a 3-acre lake, the spa has been praised as "uniquely Midwestern and unpretentious" by the Chicago Sun-Times. The red barn and surrounding grounds now house workout facilities and a spa, replete with an indoor pool, whirlpool, and sauna.

A low-fat, low-sodium, house-made meal courtesy of Heartland's chef greets arriving guests, kick-starting 24 hours of healthy eating. Afterward, settle into the five-bedroom, two-bathroom Coach House for a good night's sleep. The next day’s breakfast starts the day with nutritious vegetarian dishes, including egg-white frittatas, oatmeal, and 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. An underground tunnel connects the manor to the spa barn and shields out the cold. 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. Other spa services await, including an aromatherapy manicure ($40) or a Brazilian bikini wax ($50). Before departing, guests enjoy a peaceful lunch in one of Heartland’s common areas, which are technology-free to avoid interruptions from cell phones and tractor beams.

Gilman, Illinois: Close-Knit Community South of Chicago

About 90 miles south of Chicago, the small town of Gilman evokes a bygone era. The pedestrian-friendly downtown brims with restaurants, antique stores, and a gentleman stationed at every corner to tip his hat. The Gilman Historical Society chronicles the farming town’s history, with one exhibit showcasing U.S. veteran memorabilia and uniforms dating back to World War I.

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. Options include fitness assessments, nutrition assessments, and private classes with various wellness professionals. Amenities include an indoor heated swimming pool, chromology hot tub, and Himalayan salt sauna. 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!"
