Send Us Your Testimony!

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!

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!

- Brad and Stephanie Schwermin

We wanted a little getaway and found a little bit of heaven!  It was beyond anything we could have imagined.  Such incredible meals!  Our room is like being in our own little cabin.  Everything is a class act- the quality of the lodge, furnishings, etc.  Wanda is a delightful sweetheart and so helpful. Meeting and talking with the other guests was a pleasant bonus! Even in the winter we found places to explore.  We would return in a heartbeat!

We fell in love with this place the minute we walked in.  We enjoyed our wedding in front of the fireplace in the Orginial Lodge.  We are planning on returning next year to stay at your new property to celebrate our anniversary.

The overall experience at Heartland Lodge had us wishing we had booked a week instead of an overnight stay.  Everything from the prayers before the meals to the room's luxurious accomodations creates an ambiance and feeling of indulgent pampering.  A beautiful experience that we will definitely repeat in the future.  Thank you, Harpole family for an unforgettable getaway!

- Richard and Angela Hays, Shelbina, MO

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.

- Marty and Joanne Schuster, Florissant, MO

We had a wonderful time.  We plan to make a trip to Heartland Lodge at least once a year, more if possible.

- Bruce and Stephanie Meyer, Bowling Green, MO

This was our first experience at a bed and breakfast and wow what a treat!!  I have told everyone I know about your place!  The best part is you are in our own backyard!  We came mostly to ride the trails, but once inside the lodge it was hard to leave!  I now want to come see each season at Heartland Lodge!  Keep doing what you are doing!

- Sherry Vermillion, Beardstown, IL

Felt like family, great place to spend our 1st year anniversary.  We enjoyed ATV trails, sporting clays, hayride, horse ride, campfires and especially the dinner and brunch.  Everyone was so nice.

- Brandon and Tisha Gentz, Mayville, WI

The staff and accommodations exceeded our expectations.  The meal plan was a great value and we would do it again!

- John Hebenstreit, Mount Pulaski, IL

This is the first bed and breakfast I have stayed at.  Honestly, I have been reluctant to stay at a place where common areas & meals are shared with other guests.  Wow, I have been missing out!  Heartland was such an amazing trip.  We enjoyed horseback riding and sporting clays as well as enjoying nature.  It was peaceful.  The meals are scrumptious and the staff was so nice.  The room beautiful and comfortable.  We will return!

- Kim Johnson, Champaign, IL

My husband and I had an absolutely amazing time!  We really want to find the time and money to return and we've been telling all of our family and friends about this great place.  We want to make this place a tradition for our family.  The food was nothing short of fantastic, the staff was so friendly and the other guests were great too!  It's a very homey and family oriented vacation that is normally hard to come by anymore.

- Danielle and Benjamin Roe, Lexington, IL

By far this was the best place I have ever stayed due to many reasons but the top 2 for me were:  (1) The entire staff was extremely friendly and helpful and (2) The FOOD was SUPERB!!!  Thank you for sharing your wonderful place.

- Joanne Schuster, Florissant, MO

Wood Duck Room was breathtaking.  The whole lodge was an oasis of peace.  Thank you for building such a magnificent dwelling place!  I live a stressful life and I appreciated staying in a quiet get-away that was spotless, friendly and quiet!!

- Lylia Altom, Collinsville, IL

Exceptional quality experience!  The staff was warm, caring and competent.  Hospitality, food and all services were topnotch!  Thank you for creating an atmosphere that resulted in a memorable time with my daughter.  I felt so pampered and special!  Thanks to everyone on the Heartland Lodge Team.

- Marge Roate, Quincy, IL

The place was amazing and the food was definitely amazing.  We also loved the hostess Wanda, she was always at peace, always helpful and so cute we wanted to take her home with us.  I loved everything about the whole stay.

- Kahla Applegate, Bolivar, MO

My best friend and I had SUCH a wonderful time relaxing and getting away from our hectic lives.  The food was unbelievable and the staff made us feel like queens!  The scenery is just breathtaking!  I sunk into the comfy bed as well.  It was so comforting to have the owner pray over each meal.  We will definitely be back!

- Michelle Webster, Bloomington, IL

We couldn't have picked a better place to run off and elope.  The staff was so welcoming, the food was amazing and I think we slept on a cloud!!  We absolutely love this place and will be lifetime visitors.

- Dennis and Janette Steinhilber, Braidwood, IL

We absolutely had a wonderfully pleasant and relaxing week with you all.  The staff made us feel like old friends, which was wonderful.  Every single staff member was incredibly friendly, knowledgeable and helpful.  The meals were truly to die for!  We wanted to bring the cooks home with us.  We met several nice families during our stay.  We are planning on trying to get a family vacation planned there.  We know everyone would love it.  Thanks so much for everything!

- Brian and Marcy Wilson, Peoria, IL

Heartland Lodge is a gem in our own backyard (ok, 2 hours away).  We never imagined that we would find such a wonderful place so close.  We felt so special.  The food was incredible and all the staff was helpful and friendly.  Can't wait for the next visit.
