Discover True Country Style

Harpole's Heartland Lodge is a grand lodge with priceless roots as a 100-year-old family farm. Once you set foot here, you'll relax into the country lifestyle that permeates the entire 1,200 acres. The Heartland atmosphere is truly uncommon, combining a rich family history, the intimacy of a B&B and the service and amenities of a full-scale resort. You'll immediately feel at ease, with oak floors beneath your feet and the smell of home cooking drifting through the halls. Explore the bluffs overlooking the river valley by ATV, horseback or on foot on the resort's extensive trails. Days begin with made-from-scratch breakfasts and end with country dinners served family style. For corporate retreats, family reunions and romantic getaways, Heartland Lodge is a tradition waiting to be made!
