Big-Day Detox

Destination Texas!

Reclaimed wood welcomes guests to Deer Lake Lodge and Spa.

It’s the first holistic wellness resort of its kind in the Southeast, and it’s 15 minutes from The Woodlands. The newly opened Deer Lake Lodge and Spa, set on 50 wooded acres in Montgomery, is a respite for brides who want to decompress and detoxify body and mind before the big day. Made of repurposed shipping containers and other recycled building materials, the lodge is an entirely eco-friendly construction that uses rain harvesting, low-VOC paint and natural insulation. Its spa offers organic treatments (like dry-brush massage, facials, pedicures and cellulite stimulation) in addition to juice fasting, colonics, yoga and meditation workshops—all supervised by a doctor of naturopathy. “Whether it’s bridal parties looking for a pre-wedding detox or happy couples seeking a secluded romantic getaway, we provide holistic cleanses and other therapeutic spa treatments in a beautifully relaxed environment,” says Tracy Boulware, founder and co-owner. Highlights include a heated saltwater pool, infrared sauna and scenic walking trails, and Boulware says the spa doesn’t allow more than 22 guests at a time. “It’s a country mile away from stress.”
