Hear from some of our guests about their stay at Deerfield, and their success!

…. It was also less expensive than any Canadian equivalent I found, even with the going exchange rate for the loonie. I was petrified that I would not be able to do without my nightly intake of ice cream and chocolate. I was surprised to find that with the balanced meals and snacks, including a delicious dessert every night, I was not hungry or feeling deprived (though it helped to save my healthy breakfast muffin for my bedtime snack). The food was fantastic and I have managed to continue to make healthy choices now that I am home. The days were filled with many different types of exercise classes from sunrise hikes to aqua fitness. Personally, being in my sixties and having been away from formal exercise for a year, I chose aqua fitness every day (2 classes per day to chose from) and was introduced to Pilates, which I discovered I loved. The classes could be as easy or difficult as you wanted and the instructors were lovely. And of course, while there, I enjoyed several massages and a reflexology session. The spa staff were also lovely and friendly. I would not hesitate to recommend this spa to all my Canadian friends and I am certainly going to make my Deerfield “kick start” program an annual event!

I spent 2 weeks at Deerfield this summer and loved every minute of it. It has a relaxed, “bed and breakfast” atmosphere where the guests get to know Joan and her “spa” family, as well as each other. It is in a old farmhouse where the rooms are quaintly furnished and you can get the size that is right for you (single, double). I had a room with a single bed and en-suite bathroom. It was just right for me. If you want a more modern room, you can book into the “annex”, a separate building. I chose to have a spa vacation because I needed a catalyst to get me exercising again and off the sugar and processed foods. I found this one on the internet and it was close enough to the Canadian border (I am from Toronto) that I could drive to it in one day….(continued on the right, or read the full review on TripAdvisor)

Happy Client

Deerfield kickstarted a whole new healthier lifestyle for me. One I can actually stick to, because the food is delicious. I knew how to cook, but Deerfield inspired me to try new recipes, new ways of being active, and losing weight in the process without even thinking about it! Agonizing over my weight was over, and replaced with something much better: a new focus on my happiness and health.

I just got back from a lovely weekend with three of my friends. We enjoyed the beautiful scenery of the Poconos while enjoying various activities which were healthy, relaxing a fun! The food was great.. many healthy options. We had many classes to chose from including yoga, hiking, kick boxing and much more. The massages were wonderful and the staff is super friendly. We made lots of new friends who were there just to get away or to kick start /maintain their healthy lifestyles. This resort is rustic, yet very clean and well maintained. If you enjoy the feel of a bed and breakfast, this is a great place to consider going to. We really enjoyed our experience here and we plan on returning annually. 🙂 (via TripAdvisor)

This was my first time at Deerfield but it will not be my last. The rooms are cozy and charming with cable tv and wifi. The meals are well balanced and very tasty with a lot of variety. What impressed me the most was the exercise equipment and caliber of the instructors. There are spin bikes and reformers. The exercise classes used weights, balls, bands and some things I had never seen before. The outdoor pool is heated and classes do go on even in September. I enjoyed the daily hikes. Some were on the Appalachian Trail and others in the Pocono Mountains. Each hike included beautiful scenery. If you want a reasonably priced all inclusive health spa, Deerfield is the place to go. Stayed September 2015, travelled solo (via TripAdvisor)

I was looking for a retreat to jump-start a healthier lifestyle. I had gained a few pounds after going through menopause, and I needed some ideas for getting more active and eating better. I got all that and more at this spa! […] I needed a lifestyle change — and this place provided a beautiful setting with great hikes, calorie-controlled menu (that didn’t make me feel like I was starving all the time!), a wide-variety of exercise classes for all fitness types, and great staff and patrons. […] And the sessions with the Nutritionist that Deerfield brings in was also very enlightening as well! (And I thought I was pretty savvy when it came to nutrition…) All in all, it was the perfect vacation for me at just the right time. I lost several pounds, was far more calm when I left, and have many different tools to use to keep my lifestyle change going. All this in a 7 night stay! (read full review on TripAdvisor)
