April 15th-17th, 2019--Our short stay in the Grand view Suite at the Sunset Valley Lodge exceeded our expectations. Location and cleanliness were excellent. We enjoyed visiting with the staff, other guests, and Gary. Melissa was very helpful and friendly. Meals were delicious. From sunrise to sunset, we enjoyed the relaxing atmosphere. The extra-large bathroom with Jacuzzi tub and sauna, not to mention the gigantic shower, was unmatched by any B&B we've ever visited. Simply amazing! Loved it all!

April 11th-14th, 2019--My husband surprised me on our 22nd Anniversary, so I was in the blind as to where he took me. We went horseback riding and ATV riding--they had a wide selection of trails to ride on with great scenic outlooks. The meals were all homemade and very outstanding--then after supper we went on a wagon ride to catch the sunset. Could never go wrong with this place. Everything was outstanding. Perfect getaway in the woods.

February 11th-15th, 2019--EXCELLENT EXPERIENCE. This is my second trip! I will be returning again with my husband. I've been here twice as a single occupant, just for a get-a-way to complete some large work tasks. I would recommend this place to everyone! Wonderful staff and hospitality. *Don't skip out on ordering the meal package! The food is superb as is the dining experience.

July 14th-16th, 2018--Everything from start to finish was great! This was our second year staying at Harpole's and we are planning to make it a yearly event. Ms. Wanda is such a lovely host and all of the staff is very friendly and welcoming. We met Hunter this year, he was super helpful in showing us some fun ATV trails. He also helped us find a seat for one of our ATVs when we lost it on the way down there.

|Sept 17th - 20th, 2018--Upon arrival of the lodge everyone was so polite and caring made us feel right at home. The pictures on there web site is just what is there ( we stayed in the Stage Coach Suite ) and extremely cozy and welcoming. The ATV trail were the best had a great time. Needed to rent on as I did bring my own. The one that was rented was great Stetson was great. Steston handled the atv rental and found a problem with the ATV that would of cost me my deposit money. Thank you Stetson. Also went horse back riding Rocky and Roy are so gentle. Stetson again walked me and my wife through the process and was also our guide for the hour horse back riding. Thanks again. He also assisted me in getting air in a tire on my atv. A personal touch of kindness. We also went on the carriage ride Zak was the driver and was nice and polite and the employees there seem to enjoy there job there. Melissa and Julie assisted in making the reservations and made us feel right at home while we were there. The food well that was awesome fresh fruit all homemade and delicious Brunches and the dinners for the desserts yummy. All the food was amazing. The servers were kind and polite willing to get you whatever you needed at meal time. You can tell the time your there that they are all there to make sure you have a great time and we did. Will be going back.Might be a little far out ( about 4 hours for us ) but was worth the trip. You will not be disappointed at this lodge. We give 10 out of 10 and 110% happy with our stay. We will be back|

September 7th-10th, 2018--Absolutely loved our visit to the lodge! We were so impressed with everyone's kindness and happy demeanor. With checking in being super easy and fast, to the wonderful meals served, to the young man who took us for a hayride in the rain (and never once seemed annoyed or inconvenienced). We couldn't have felt more welcomed and comfortable. And a special thank you to I believe Kim (she served breakfast with another young lady Saturday morning) for giving me nail polish remover, which I greatly appreciated. Thank you for an absolutely wonderful 1st anniversary weekend!

June 22nd-June 24th, 2018--We had an incredible stay! We will definitely come back again! The food was amazing and the service was exceptional! It was really awesome how grace was said before each meal. It really felt like home to us. I usually don't like staying at hotels because I am not really sure about how clean the rooms are, but I felt very comfortable here and was confident everything was kept very clean. We can't wait to come back!
