July 6th-8th, 2018--The lodge and property were absolutely beautiful. The staffs personal touches and attention to detail really make you feel special. We look forward to coming back for the heart felt hospitality. Tim was a great "activities director" for our group. He did anything and everything to make sure our group enjoyed the trip.

June 22nd-June 24, 2018--Absolutely love the feel of the Original Lodge we stayed in! There was 10 of us, and we had 2 small children with us! They had a blast! There were board games provided, smores kits, very child-oriented! They also enjoyed the bunk beds! Also, Tim was amazing with us and our kids! He took the time to give horseback rides to each of them, start our fires, and took us on wonderful tractor rides! Food staff was also so kind and generous!
June 21-22nd, 2018--We are so glad that we spent out 10th wedding anniversary here! It was so relaxing being able to sit on the deck and talk! The meals were amazing and the wagon ride was perfect! Thanks for everything, we will for sure come back again!! Thanks again!
June 22nd-24th, 2018--I have already recommended this place to friends and family. The staff was so polite and really cares about their guests. My boyfriend and I met our family late Friday and there were two plates set aside for us from dinner. Those running activities were helpful. This has been one of my favorite trips.

June 22nd-24th, 2018--It felt like home. Loved the way simple pleasures were anticipated! Games, books, videos, popcorn, coffee. Landscaping was beautiful! We travel to Europe, in the US, and are from Illinois, so awesome to experience something in our own "backyard" that is just breath taking as far away places. So relaxed, welcoming, and genuine in hospitality.

We visited Heartland for the second consecutive year to rest and relax. Our room was great: comfortable and clean! The meals are abundant and delicious. Most importantly, the staff are each friendly and extremely helpful without being intrusive. Back to meals: served elegantly without being intimidating.

October 22nd-23rd, 2017--This was our first time staying here and we chose to do so for our one-year anniversary! We are local (Mt. Sterling, IL) and had heard a lot about the lodge. Actually, Tyler and his groomsman shot clays at your facility for his bachelor party one year ago. We only stayed one night but we were so impressed by the accommodations and meals. We cant wait to come back and hopefully stay longer!

October 23rd-25th, 2017--We came for a visit to celebrate our 20th anniversary and this visit was so much more than we could have imagined! Our room was amazing--so many details (mini fridge, warm robes)--the Jacuzzi tub, and fireplace in front of the bed. Perfect! The food was spectacular and everyone was so pleasant from the moment we arrived until our visit ended. We've been sharing our experience with everyone!
October 6th-9th, 2017--We went there to ride the trails and enjoy the cabins which exceeded everything we thought it would be. Very amazing place and great staff which were very helpful and courteous. We are big on the UTV riding and will be coming back as soon as we can. Thank you very much for the amazing time.

It is a magical experience beyond a dream to stay at your magnificent lodge. Its beauty and upscale rustic setting and decor draws you in..but the staff takes the experience over the moon! Thank you from our hearts for, once again, giving us a dream memory!
