I had the incredible opportunity of staying at beautiful Deer Lake Lodge & Spa in Montgomery, Texas a few weekends ago. Deer Lake Lodge is a completely organic resort and spa that provides the ultimate cleansing, detoxing, and relaxing experience. From the moment you arrive, you enter a world of peace, serenity, and positivity. The staff members are all very friendly, caring, and knowledgable, and the facility is absolutely stunning. If you're ready to hit the "reset" button on your health, looking to drop a few pounds, or just cleanse your body and mind, this is the perfect getaway for you!
While you are at the spa, you are only consuming liquids (which includes a scrumptious raw soup for dinner). This sounds like it would be difficult, but the various drinks you consume throughout the day are extremely filling (not to mention delicious), and I did not feel hungry once! When you arrive, you are given complete instructions on how to make each drink, when to consume it, and information on why the specific ingredients are part of each recipe. All ingredients are provided for you to make the drinks in the beautiful Fasting Lounge. Everything you consume during your stay at Deer Lake Lodge is pure, organic, and 100% nourishing and cleansing. In addition to all of the delicious detoxifying beverages, it is recommended that you do a colonic each day you are there. I was very afraid of this at first, but it truly enhanced the detox experience. I only had one planned initially, but after the first one I enjoyed such great results that I went back each day I was there! (I won't get into the details here, but email me if you want to know more!).
Each day starts with gentle yoga at 9 followed by an enlightening class of some sort (it's different each week, but I attended a Liquid Love class on raw foods and juicing and a class on organics - both very informative and enjoyable). The class ends around noon, and then it's time to get pampered with an endless selection of spa treatments, hit the sauna, lounge by the pool, meditate on the meditation deck, or go for a walk on the trails around the expansive property. Soup is served at 4 pm, and the rest of the evening is yours to do as you please.
Staying at Deer Lake Lodge was the experience of a lifetime!! I highly recommend it to anyone who is looking to cleanse their body and mind or just enjoy ultimate relaxation. When I left after the weekend, I felt refreshed, lighter, and cleaner from the inside out. I felt calm and ready to return to my busy life at home. I will definitely be returning to Deer Lake Lodge in the future, and I am greatly looking forward to it! A big THANK YOU to the wonderful Deer Lake team for having me!
