Testimonials

  • Everything was wonderful.  The property was beautiful and well maintained--so peaceful!  The lodge itself was so comfortable and cozy.  The food was phenomenal!  Each meal was more delicious than the last and there was always plenty.  I enjoyed the family style dining.  The biscuits and gravy were delicious and I consider myself a biscuit and gravy snob because my grandma used to make them for me all the time. The staff was so friendly and accommodating at everything!
    - Sean and Corey Johnson
  • 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!
    - Kerry and Carol Loughary. Rushville, IL
  • 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!
