    Eagle Watching Season Has Returned!
    Posted by admin
    The eagle has landed…again! But this year, we must change ‘eagle’ to ‘eagles’ as there seems to be a larger number of eagles around the area than in the previous two years since I’ve been blogging about a hobby of many this time of year – Eagle Watching!

Testimonials

  • The overall experience at Heartland Lodge had us wishing we had booked a week instead of an overnight stay.  Everything from the prayers before the meals to the room's luxurious accomodations creates an ambiance and feeling of indulgent pampering.  A beautiful experience that we will definitely repeat in the future.  Thank you, Harpole family for an unforgettable getaway!
    - Richard and Angela Hays, Shelbina, MO
  • We fell in love with this place the minute we walked in.  We enjoyed our wedding in front of the fireplace in the Orginial Lodge.  We are planning on returning next year to stay at your new property to celebrate our anniversary.
    - Dennis and Janette Steinhilber, Braidwood, IL
  • We wanted a little getaway and found a little bit of heaven!  It was beyond anything we could have imagined.  Such incredible meals!  Our room is like being in our own little cabin.  Everything is a class act- the quality of the lodge, furnishings, etc.  Wanda is a delightful sweetheart and so helpful. Meeting and talking with the other guests was a pleasant bonus! Even in the winter we found places to explore.  We would return in a heartbeat!

Guests enjoy the relaxing atmosphere the resort offers. You can relax on one of our rap around decks that over look the surrounding woods and watch all the wildlife. Our suites have ultra comfy king sized beds made out of lodge pole pine, along with Jacuzzis, fireplaces, comfy lounge furniture, and your own refrigerator to keep your favorite beverages close.

If you are looking for some activities, Heartland offers many options. Take a scenic horseback ride through the rolling hills that surround the resort. Or rev up one of our ATV’s and take an adventure ride on our miles of trails. Enjoy our sporting clays course that offers a little bit of everything for the beginner and advance shooters. In season, every day is finished with our scenic hour long hay ride that looks over the Mississippi River valley and the Missouri bluffs. After enjoying the hayride relax around the bonfire and take in a smore that reminds you of the days you were a child. (Most activities are closed October through December for hunting season.)

If you want to take a road trip, there are many sites to see within an hour or so of the lodge. The following all make a great day trip from the lodge:
