It's been a popular fitness resort for some 30 years, tucked in the quiet farm ground of rural Iroquois County. It's also been a relaxing comfort zone for many celebrities, including Oprah Winfrey...even though celebrity visits were kept quiet.
Today, the Heartland Spa & Fitness Resort near Gilman has been sold. A news release states the facility will close November 30.
The news statement points out the new owner is a family-owned corporation in the nursing home, senior healthcare and rehab industries. Plans call for major renovations which will begin soon after the closing.
The Heartland Spa is encouraging people to use any gift certificates before the November 30 closing.
