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!
