Testimonials

  • The Heartland Lodge experience was exactly what we needed for a couple days of getting away and relaxing! The staff was friendly, informative, and accommodating from planning our trip on the phone to the guides during our activities.  We loved seeing the deer on the grounds during the bonfire! We met some other great guests from Chicago as well! We will be visiting again!

  • Thoroughly met our expectations! My husband and I celebrated our 7th Anniversary at the resort. The staff was friendly and very accommodating to our needs.  The atmosphere was top notch.  Everything was clean and well kept!  We brought out ATV and the trails were fantastic! We will definitely be back!

  • Much Needed Break One of the best last minute decisions we've made in a long time.  We stayed at the lodge in the super comfortable Wood Duck Room.  Since we only stayed one day/night, we didn't get to experience all of the great activities offered, but are definitely another reason to return, as if the views, food and hospitality weren't already enough.  Our best moment: Finding a sunny spot, shutting the ATV down and just lying there on our blanket in perfect silence.  Very much needed break from our incredibly hectic lives.
    - Roger and Amy Henson
