Couples’ Special Weekend Getaway!

2020 Couples’ Getaway Weekend
Check back for dates (March)

 

Harpole’s Heartland Lodge is offering two amazing Couples’ Getaway Weekends! Based off our popular Girls’ Getaway Weekends, and requested by many of the girls who have attended our girls’ weekends, we have arranged a special weekend just for couples! You and your significant other will enjoy gourmet meals, first-class accommodations, and a host of unforgettable activities. After a long week of staff meetings, laundry, ringing phones, and e-mail updates, don’t you think you deserve a vacation together? Imagine it – no cooking, no cleaning, and no worries. Just you and your loved one enjoying quality time together. You can participate in as many or as few of our activities as you would like. The atmosphere is very laid back so you can enjoy time with each other.

We are offering TWO 2-night getaways in March (A third night – or more – can be added to each of these weekends.) Check out our fantastic itineraries and reserve your spot today! Please call 217-734-2526 to make reservations. Reservations CANNOT be made online (dates are blocked out online.)

One thought on “Couples’ Special Weekend Getaway!

  1. When is the couple’s deal? Like dates. The amount by each Lodge is that per night? I’m very interested. I’m celebrating my 50th b-day and want to do something fun!

    Thanks for any info
