We had an amazing time. We celebrated our 5th wedding anniversary. The lodge was beautiful, clean and welcoming. The staff was fantastic. We enjoyed the beautiful scenery. We can not wait to come back!
My daughter and I had a wonderful stay at Heartland! It was very peaceful and we especially enjoyed the beautiful view from our deck of all the Fall colors! I would definitely recommend for all my friends to visit Heartland Lodge. We will be visiting again in the near future. Not just a hunting resort but also a peaceful & wonderful get away for anyone.

We truly enjoyed our time at the lodge. Very relaxing & peaceful setting. We hope to visit again perhaps one time in the Fall. Wonderful food & hosts were very nice.

Amazing stay for the Wine & Brewery tour. The food at the lodge was so delicious. Beautiful lodge, everything anyone could ask for! The trip to Hannibal had it all! Riverboat cruise, brewery, shopping, winery with live music and great dinner. Loved the bus transportation and Lori was a great “chaperone”!
The place is beautiful and very comfortable. Staff, especially Melissa, was friendly, helpful and just a joy to work with. The entire place appeared to be spotless! Despite a heavy storm the night before, which produced a lot of fallen trees & limbs in the yard, the trails were in great shape! Very impressed, can’t wait to come back!!!

We stayed at the lodge for our 49th wedding anniversary. It was amazing! This is a wonderful place. We took our own UTV and rode the trails, awesome. Our room in the Prairie Ridge Lodge was perfect. The meal plan was fabulous and we highly recommend this option. The staff is top notch. Thank you for making our 49th so special.
It was one of our favorite trips. We absolutely loved everything. One thing it made you feel at home and with family, even though we had just met everyone. The view from different parts of the lodge was very peaceful. Thank you for reminding us to appreciate outdoor life and to pause, disconnect from work and always being on the run/go. We have told all of our friends about this place & staff. Hope to be back!

This is a very accommodating resort. The staff was friendly and everyone made it such a beautiful experience. Thank you Ms Wanda and Mr Gary for making guests feel like family. Thank you to my Hostess Stephanie, she is a pleasant delight. Thank you to the chefs Terry and Jeff, very wonderful food. Thank you to the wrangler Jeff for my wonderful horseback ride along with the rest of the staff that do wonderful work.

The staff are wonderful. Everyone makes you feel like your at home. Melissa is the best. She is definitely an asset to your business. We like seeing Miss Wanda and talking with her. She is very sweet. And the cleaning ladies & Stephanie are the great too. Since 2018 we’ve been there 16 times. We like the trails & the guys do a great job keeping them clean. We usually come at least 3 times or more every year.
Best vacation ever! The room, view, FOOD, horseback riding, ATV rental/trails, and EVERYTHING!!! So wonderfully, amazingly awesome! Get all the meals, do all the activities, and you will have zero regrets.

We would like to recognize Gary, Stephanie, Melissa, Kathleen, Jeff, Jaime and all the others who made our experience awesome!!! We felt each and everyone of the people lived up to the organizations creed –“Come as strangers – leave as friends”. We are spreading the word on how great your place is and about our experience. The meals are well worth the cost, you go away hungry, it’s your own fault. The ATV trails were awesome and easy to get around. Some challenging as well. We “HIGHLY” recommend this as a great get away!

We went to Heartland Lodge for an overnight UTV get away. The service and accommodations were better than we could imagine. We will definitely be back.

Everyone was very friendly and helpful. Loved the little extras in the evening. (Campfire/S'mores/Popcorn) Love the personal touches throughout the lodge, like blankets to cozy up with. Love all the chairs and gliders on both the front and back porches. Will definitely be coming back with a larger group. September 18-21, 2022

This was our 4th visit to Harpole's Heartland Lodge. We have always enjoyed our stay with you tremendously. The food, staff and accommodations are excellent! We are avid ATV riders and have always enjoyed the trails but with the expansion of the new park it makes it even better! Plenty to do even when we are not on the trails. Everything is well thought out. Thanks for a relaxing and wonderful time with the family! August, 2022
My now-husband and I were planning a very small wedding ceremony and since I'm originally from Pike County, we decided to rent out the Sunset Valley Lodge for the weekend. It was just perfect! All of the couples had their own bedroom and private bath. The kitchen and dining area were large, which worked well when we grilled out and when we fixed Sunday Breakfast. The main level living room and lower level room allowed everyone to spread out. The game room was a big hit with our adult kids with its pool table, shuffleboard and air hockey. Since the views were so beautiful, we opted to have the ceremony on the main level deck at Sunset. It could have not been more gorgeous! Also, we had Friday dinner and Saturday breakfast at the main lodge. Both meals were hearty and delicious, and the friendly staff made accommodations for our two vegetarian guests. We highly recommend the Sunset Valley Lodge. Our family is already talking about going back so that we can rent ATVs and go horseback riding.
We had our second fantastic stay at Harpole's for an anniversary getaway. We booked 2 nights, 2 breakfasts, and two dinners. The staff is simply top-notch!! They are so professional, but make us feel like family. We brought our ATV this trip and enjoy two days out riding. So much land to explore! We enjoyed the scenic views and all of the wildlife. We even were able to watch a turtle laying her eggs. The whirlpool tub felt great after the day out, and we spent lots of time on the porch relaxing, watching the hummingbirds, and just listening to nature all around us. We can't wait to come back!!!

We stayed in the Prairie Ridge Lodge for 3 nights the first week of May. The accommodations were first class. We had a great time even though the weather wasn’t the best. The staff are all so accommodating and friendly. We can’t say enough about the food. Excellent food and lots of it!! If you leave hungry it’s your own fault. We are returning the last week of October and first of November for a combo pheasant and archery whitetail hunt. Can’t wait. Would love to visit more often if it wasn’t so far from Texas
Myself and my Friends were there for the Girls Weekend. It was absolutely wonderful. It was so relaxing and peaceful. All the staff was so friendly and always smiling. Megan in the dining room was wonderful. The food was delicious. The rooms were so beautiful and very clean. The beds were so so comfortable. Absolutely loved the bed post. Meet some new friends. Loved the hay ride. I could go on and on. It’s just so beautiful and relaxing. Hope some day to return. I highly recommend this place for anything. I’d give it 10 stars! May 2022
All the employees are so nice & accommodating. Food is excellent! All the ladies in the dining room are friendly and so sweet. Although I was here on the girls getaway, I'll be returning with my husband. April 29, - May 1st, 2022

Your staff is amazing! Mckenzie & Megan are super sweet. Actually, everyone is. From Jeff the cook to the cleaning staff. Lori, the photographer was great!

Unfortunately our stay was not long enough to enjoy all the amenities offered. However we will make full use of them on our return trip. The staff was warm and friendly and willing to accommodate our needs. Both breakfast and dinner service was delicious. Thank you for a wonderful stay. April 9-10, 2022

We have visited numerous places for our anniversary each year. This, by far, was the most enjoyable, relaxed, and best place we have stayed! Thank you to everyone involved with our stay. Feb. 2022

My husband and I try to get away a couple of days each quarter to read our Bibles, pray, and seek God's will for us for the time ahead of us. As we were planning our retreat in December, 2021, we looked for a lodge within driving distance. We did a search and ran across this amazing website for what seemed a "too good to be true" resort, right here in Illinois. We decided to give it a try and let me say, we have never had such a blessed stay anywhere else! And to think this beauty is right here in our backyard is awesome. Who knew? Let me start by saying that the pictures are exactly what you will see in person, only everything is more expansive than it looks. The land is beautiful, the Sunset Valley Lodge (where we stayed) is exceptionally clean and well managed, and the decorating is perfection! Total serenity here, inside and out. We were blessed to come around Christmas time. There were decorated trees in every room. What a great atmosphere! We stayed in the Sunset View Suite and the sunsets were gorgeous each evening. We went out on the deck and watched the sun go down. A glimpse of the water was just the right touch for a perfect sunset to get your attention and keep it. We watched for well over an hour each evening. We especially loved the workers at the Lodge. They all have such a servant's heart! The cleaning ladies were truly joyful and showed us around the lodge before departing for the day. The office help was great in giving directions and spending time talking with us. The food was delicious--we loved the family-style arrangement. And the bonus was that at every meal a blessing was said, in the name of Jesus. WOW! Just like Heaven-Perfection! There are many opportunities for outdoor fun but, as I said, we were there for a spiritual retreat so we did not take the time to participate in them. Just to relax and observe God's creation in this amazing place was more than we could've expected. We can't say enough about our time at Heartland, except to say we will be back! Thank you Heartland Staff and Owners--you have an incredible gem here. Be blessed! Anita and Ted
