Deer Lake Lodge – Detox & Chic Upcycling!

By Kami Kreaps

I was flattered and excited to be invited to check out Deer Lake Lodge in Montgomery  Texas just outside of Houston.  I was not sure what I was in for but I trusted my friend and Vegan inspiration  April Ree. I don’t believe she would lead me to a place that I wouldn’t fall in love.  She was right all along!  Deer Lake Lodge is out in the middle of the woods, secluded and magical.   It was already the lap of luxury that had me excited.

I knew I was in for a Healthy Detox with the comfort of a Spa but I was really blown away.  The staff was amazing with customers and always wanted to make sure I was tended to well, comfortable and enjoyed everything Deer Lake Lodge has to offer.  When I first arrived  I was greeted and walked to my room that overlooked the pool and gorgeous, lush beauty all around.

Quaint Cottages

When I found out the room was made from retired metal crates and for insulation inside the crates they are  stuffed with Old Jeans!  All of the rooms were personally designed with the visions of those that created Deer Lake Lodge.  I was really taken aback with the great designs and I hadn’t even started my detox!  They even have these quaint little cottages for couples that want a little more privacy. They include enclosed patios, a sitting area and beautiful had picked touches all over the cottage.

Making new friends is only one of the fun parts of my journey!

Deer Lake Lodge really wants everyone to feel super comfortable because as most know going through a detox process is not always the most pleasant ride.  It was great to bond with others that were going through the detox too! I met amazing people that I had many things in common with.

Take a dip in the pool or hot tub!

 It was pretty cold out but that didn’t stop anyone from making sure the hot tub and pool were heated well!

Check out the fireplace and comfy seating!

In the evening there was music by the outdoor fireplace and it was magical watching the stars, enjoying the warmth of new friends and the fire.

Lots of room to hang with people and enjoy the view and music!

I really feel that the detox that Deer Lake Lodge offers is amazing.  I lost 5 lbs in a couple of days, felt super light and tummy tight! With all of the great classes they had to offer (including yoga) my mind didn’t have time to wonder “is this really working!”

My Spa treatments were wonderful. I honestly believe I had the best facial I have EVER had!

Yes, I am Vegan and the options I had for soup and the Raw Food classes were right up my alley.  The Raw Food Health classes are led by April Ree who is sweet like Cherry Vegan Pie!  The staff was accommodating to my every need whether it be questions or concerns or extra towels!  I can’t wait to go back soon.  Don’t forget to check out their latest specials on their website and check them out at the Sustainable Living Fest in the center of Houston on March 16, 2013!

All of the staff is hands on, experienced and loves pampering those that come to Deer Lake Lodge!
