"The Girls' Weekend experience was wonderful! This gave my girlfriends and I a chance to get away, relax, and enjoy the coziness of your lodge. The rooms were clean, the food amazing, the staff very accommodating and the experience unforgettable. I will recommend your lodge to everyone I know looking to getaway!!" Lori Murphy, St Louis MO - April Getaway.

“We decided to book the ladies weekend getaway and was not disappointed. The whole experience was above and beyond what we expected. The staff was outstanding and the food was exceptional. We are going to make this a yearly tradition. Relaxation at its finest.” Jennifer Wolenhauer, Burlington IA - May Getaway
