Pack your bag and leave your worries behind. Located just 90 miles south of Chicago , it's closer than you think. Since 1983, The Heartland Spa's team of experts has been helping their guests make positive lifestyle changes in the areas of nutrition, stress management, fitness, and skincare. Prepare to unplug, because the rooms do not have an internet connection (however, it is available by request) or phone. That's not to say that an important phone call can't get through. Oprah Winfrey was here when she received a call from Steven Spielberg, phoning to tell her she had a part in a little movie called "The Color Purple."
You'll arrive between 2:30-4:00 pm on a Friday, or Wednesday. Check in and enjoy a peaceful tour and orientation. The Heartland staff will discuss all classes and help you design your next day's activities and spa services. You'll be able to schedule your day from a wide variety of classes and activities. Then it's off to enjoy a delicious heartland healthy dinner presented with chef Barb's favorite recipes. After dinner, there is an evening exercise class...tai chi, yoga or group discussion (your choice of course, or just relax). Goodnight, sleep tight in this rustic cozy B & B style stay in the "Carriage House" which features five bedrooms and two full baths, or upgrade to a Manor House room. (please call for prices, subject to availability).
Rise and shine, 7 am wake up call for 7:15 am group walk. (rain or shine, we provide rain gear if needed). Enjoy a healthy breakfast and mid morning snack to keep your metabolism going. Start your schedule with exercise classes: dance, aerobics, water aerobics, tai chi, yoga or enjoy a peaceful walk around the lake. You can do it all or as little as you like. Spend your lunch hour enjoying conversation with your new Heartland friends and prepare yourself for your afternoon activities. Just how will you spend your afternoon? Will you visit the salon, have a massage, sit in the sauna or Jacuzzi or take a yoga class? Hmmm...these are tough decisions. We even have a tunnel that connects the Manor House to the Spa Barn allowing you to stroll over without having to bundle up each time during inclement weather
Unfortunately, all good things must come to an end and you will have to head home. Check out is by 5:00 pm. The good part is that you'll be going home a new person, refreshed, relaxed and rejuvenated. Of course, you're more than welcome to come back real soon. The Heartland Spa and Fitness Resort is a magical place and our 2:1 staff to guest ratio ensures each guest will have the help to attain their individual goals. It's no wonder that "Spas of America" named The Heartland Spa as #1 ranked spa in Illinois.
