Whether you are a non-hunter or will be joining your significant other in a hunt of a lifetime, Heartland Lodge is the perfect destination to enjoy a relaxing couple’s hunting vacation trip.

If you are coming as a non-hunter, you will love everything the lodge has to offer on-site and off-site. You can practice up on your pool or shuffleboard skills, go for a relaxing hike, or just kick back and enjoy that book you’ve been wanting to read while your partner is enjoying the thrill of the hunt! If you are hunting during the resort season (April thru Mid-October), Heartland offers guided Horseback Riding Trails, 15-Station Sporting Clays Course, Polaris UTV Rentals (you can bring your own ATV or UTV and explore 1,200 acres!), Guided Fishing and Mississippi River Cruise Excursions, Pistol Range and much more!

Honeymoon Upland HuntNow comes the loaded question…what kind of hunting do you enjoy? Heartland offers several different types of hunting…and we’re sure that there is at least one season (if not more), that will be perfect for the two of you.

Couple’s Hunting Trip Reviews

  • First Class “OMG where do I begin! This hidden jewel is something you would find in the mountains & resorts of Colorado, Montana or Idaho. No expense has been spared in the luxury accommodations that make you melt right into the bed, & wrap yourself in the luxurious linens. The canopy bed, private balcony, fireplace, jacuzzi bath, & all the luxuries you could ask for are just a step inside this beautiful lodge or lodges depending on which one you pick… & that’s a tough one! Watching the sunset from the Grand Suite in Sunset Valley is heartstopping. Sledding down the hills of Prairie Ridge has been a family favorite. I haven’t even RAVED about the gourmet meals that await you for dinner & breakfast. I swear the top chefs in the country have to be in that kitchen. First the food presentation is simply stunning… something I have only seen in the finest restaurants in New York & London! HOMEMADE… YES… HOMEMADE with all you can eat helpings makes this one of the best places we have been to. So many ways to enjoy this fabulous resort… a couples getaway, a family weekend, a girls getaway, & hunting trip, a wedding, a reunion… anything… you MUST have it here!”     -Username LONDON wrote a review on
