A visit to Harpole’s Heartland Lodge in Nebo, Illinois, is a step into the quiet zone, where the hustle and bustle of daily life seems far, far away. It is also a treat, for this is no country bumpkin, but a luxurious resort that pays attention to the details.
The acclaimed facility, surrounded by trees and bluffs in west-central Illinois includes four distinctive lodges. The Original Lodge boasts an amazing Great Room with a two-story stone fireplace, front and back decks, and has a total of 13 deluxe rooms. Sunset Valley is located on 52 acres and offers an expansive deck with views of the Mississippi River bluffs and seven luxury suites and rooms. Prairie Ridge Lodge also has seven luxury suites, featuring canopy king beds, baths with Jacuzzis, fireplaces, sitting areas, and expansive wrap-around decks. With a banquet and conference rooms, it’s an ideal space for events or meetings too. The private Heavenly View Cabin sits near the top of a bluff—stunning views!—and offers a screened-in porch, covered patios, and a Southwest-themed décor.
Come fall, this Illinois venue is a top haven for hunters. Known as one of the premier hunting lodges in the Midwest, Harpole’s Hearland Lodge draws visitors from across the country for its whitetail deer hunting, plus excellent quail, pheasant, and turkey hunting. With experienced outfitting services, including German Shorthair and English Pointers for upland bird hunting, hunters can enjoy a unique outdoor experience, returning “home” to a bit of luxury at the end of the day.
A peaceful country setting; luxurious accommodations; hearty, home-cooked breakfasts; and knock-out scenery—no wonder guests return time and again to this special place!
