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-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.
