  • What a wonderful experience.  From check-in to check-out, one of the best get-away experiences I have ever experienced.  Ms. Wanda went out of her way to make us feel special and welcome.  The food was delicious.   The lodge and grounds were beautiful.  We will definitely be back and will share our experience with family and friends.

  • My parents Chris and Jo Balensiefen, have visited Heartland Lodge on 7 or 8 trips.  My husband and I received a gift certificate to join them to go 4 wheeling and we can't wait to visit again.  We've shared pictures on facebook and family and friends keep asking about it.  We are highly recommending it!  Hard to believe something like Heartland is so close to home.  See you all next year!
