  • There is nothing bad I could say about our stay, it was totally awesome! We loved the way the meals were set up, and saying grace made it feel like family. We were able to get to know some great people and the staff was also the best! I truly wish I lived nearby so I could be a part of the Heartland family of employees... or just family period!  We loved it!
