Jim and Kathie area farmers in SW Iowa and operate Buck Run Lodge on their property. They are artists that have used their'artistic eye' to build, decorate and landscape this property. They always think 'Would I want to stay here?' YES

We chose this property to build Buck Run Lodge on because of the 12 acre pond and the oak grove.A perfect setting for a quiet retreat but with recreational activities for your family or company, fishing, kayaking, hiking, bird watching, deer wanderings, etc

We can accommodate large and small family reunions, school reunions, company retreats, weddings - gazebo for the ceremony and Event Center for receptions for 200. Beautiful photographic setting for the outdoor weddings.We have hosted National Dog Trials, Agricultural businesses, computer technical retreats. A private sanctuary for you.

Our family gathered at Buck Run Lodge for a 3 day weekend which included golfing, hiking, kayaking, great food, games, and many laughs. The accommodations were perfect for families and especially ours which included 8 adults and two little ones. The lodge has everything you need to prepare meals and sleep comfortably. We enjoyed spending time on the deck looking over the pond and fall colored farm fields. Our family definitely plans on returning for another visit to Buck Run Lodge. Thank you to Kathie and Jim.

What a gem! This is a private, quiet and beautiful home. The description and the photos are accurate. The reality is even better. It is beautifully furnished with antiques and handcrafted items and has every amenity you could desire. We have had the good fortune to stay here several times and look forward to our next visit.
Everything is extremely clean and well-maintained. It is well equipped for cooking at home and entertaining.
We enjoyed the pond, fire pit and large deck. There are no neighbors visibly present, which makes you feel completely private and serene. The geese on the lake are fun to watch. Our extended family has gathered here several times and we look forward to many more gatherings.
Kathie and Jim are superb owners, whose only concern is to make you feel as comfortable as possible. Their commitment to the community and the environment is admirable. We really enjoy this quiet, relaxing and restorative lodge. We will return as often as possible and highly recommend it.

This lodge was the perfect place for my family to get together! My husband and I, my sons and families including two 5-year olds and a 3-year old enjoyed every moment. The lodge had everything we wanted. We caught enough fish to feed 11 of us, used the firepit for s'mores and camping pies, caught fireflies each evening, There was plenty of room to spread out and for several to work on dinner together. I would highly recommend this property. I kind of wishes my husband and I could have stayed a couple more days for some quiet, R&R time.

An amazing location, stunning view, and incredible staff

I was responsible for booking this location for a leadership meeting of the company I work at, so it was incredibly important to me that Buck Run Lodge was a positive experience for everyone. As soon as my co-workers started arriving, they were struck with the beauty of the lodge and the view. We almost immediately took a walk out on the 40 acres up to the stand of Oak trees on the hill. The location was just beautiful.

The lodge itself was perfectly clean and ready for our arrival. It smelled fresh and clean and was ready to go. Our team was able to comfortably meet each day and there was enough room to mix things up. We met in the meeting/dining room and out on the deck, and as team members needed to take calls they moved to the living room or out on the deck.

The WiFi is provided via a Verizon MiFi device. It would work well for a few devices, but when we all tried to connect it couldn't handle all the connections. We knew this ahead of time, so those of us with Verizon just tethered to our cell phones. The connection was surprisingly fast as LTE was available at the house. However, there was almost no AT&T coverage at the lodge which affected three people on our team. (I had Verizon, so it was fine for me :)

The lodge provided three Kayaks for our usage, and I got to go out on the pond with a co-worker and enjoy paddling around. My other co-workers repeatedly used the walking trails to get fresh air throughout our time at the lodge. We got to use the fire pit one of the nights as well, and that was really fun.

Perhaps the highlight of the whole stay were the two meals we had the Lodge cater for us. The menus were incredibly fresh and geared toward local Iowa food. Kathie is a great chef, and wonderful hostess and her husband Jim also made our stay wonderful.

Needless to say, I felt incredibly satisfied to be credited with finding this amazing place to stay. I can't wait until I have opportunity to rent out the Buck Run Lodge again and let other friends and family share in its offerings.
