Thanks for Another Great Time
My husband and I have stayed at the sunset view 3 times. The first two times it was just us the 3rd time we brought friends with and they fell in love with it as much as we did. Its so relaxing, quiet and such a beautiful place, and the homemade food omg I cant even start to describe how delicious it is. Thanks for another great time see you again soon.

Absolutely Loved Our Visit!
My wife and I along with my brother in law and sister in law stayed at Heartland Lodge the weekend of March 19 and 20th. We absolutely loved our visit! The Sunset Valley Lodge we stayed in was beautiful and clean. We went to ride our side by side and where nicely surprised by the amount of trails and the different types. We had a wonderful and fun weekend and are looking forward to boing back. Bob and Jill Hinch, March 19 & 20, 2021

This Place is Amazing!
October 2nd - 3rd, 2020 - This place is amazing! The cabin was gorgeous. Nothing was cheap as far as furnishings. We loved the motion sensor light and heater in the bathroom. We will definitely be back! Activities (clay shooting) was fun. Staff was very friendly. Kim Barker

February 14th-16th, 2020--We absolutely loved our weekend getaway at your lodge. The lodge is only 1 1/2 hours away from home, but it felt like we were hours away. All of the staff members were friendly and greeted you with a smile. Our room was spectacular with everything we needed to enjoy our stay. The breakfasts and dinners were to die for! It truly tasted like I was back in my grandmother's kitchen.
January 24th-26th, 2020--The food and service was amazing. Everyone was welcoming and friendly, always going above and beyond to make sure we had everything we needed during our stay. The girls getaway weekend was well organized and overall very relaxing. My group and I truly enjoyed it and being able to relax for a weekend. I would recommend it to anyone interested.
January 24th-26th, 2020--This weekend far exceeded my mom and I's expectations! The Sunset Lodge was breathtaking, the food was delicious, the staff was accommodating and wonderfully friendly. I can't wait for the next time I can come--I would love for my husband to experience this place!

September 6th-10th--Everyone was exceptionally kind and sweet--they would help us with anything--always able to answer questions too. The meals were way beyond what I thought they would be--my husband and I ate the meal and were stuffed and still ate dessert! The scavenger hunt was going on when we were there--we didn't participate since it was our first time there and we found two just by chance. It was really set up nicely. We hope to bring our family next year if we can get everyone together. Thank you so much for a wonderful time with all of you!!
