A Hidden Treasure-Beautiful and Very Clean

  • 5 of 5

We stayed from September 15-17, 2017 for a weekend visit to Truman State. The owner accommodated families visiting their students at the nearby University because the hotels were booked.

Initial Impression: The place looked exactly as shown in the photo's on their website. It was very clean and the grounds were also very well maintained. The pond is beautiful and well kept.

Rooms: Our room had a queen with a single bed. The room was fairly small but clean. The bathroom was fine for two people.

Towels were plentiful, additional towels were available in the laundry room.

Main Living Area: Large fully equipped kitchen and great room were very clean and comfortable. It was nice having a full sized refrigerator and freezer to store our food/beverages. The room was spotless and had an attached half bath which is convenient. Unlike a hotel, you will need to bring your own food. However, the kitchen has plates, utensils, paper towels, appliances, and most of what you need.

Grounds and Pond: Beautiful and well maintained. No algae and the grass surrounding the pond appeared to have been recently mowed which made walking around very easy and pleasant. The canoe was a nice touch and allowed additional access to this approx one acre pond. The bass and pan fish are reported to be excellent here. We had limited time to fish but wound up catching an approx 10 lb catfish. The water is somewhat clear and visibility is about three feet on a sunny day. There are nice fire pits with some seats if you want to cook or socialize. Volleyball net was in great shape. The land is very well kept.

Overall value: This is a great opportunity for a group of people to enjoy a private get-a-way. The lodge is very clean and the owner and caretakers obviously care about keep their guests happy. We could not have been more pleased about our stay at this beautiful location.

It is definitely worth the money and the guests should do their part in keeping the place in good shape so the resort does not have to incur unnecessary cleaning/repair costs. We liked the "no pet" rule as it makes for a more relaxing experience.

Great size shared space, well-kept property, clean inside space and rooms! Very comfortable beds!

  • 4 of 5

Everything was great! The facility is stocked with all the essentials you would need, even baggies and foil! Thanks SO much for little things like that... When you get there, you just don't want to have to leave! The space is WONDERFUL for kids, also! The tub of toys in the living area was a hit with our group! The towels and linens were nice as well as comfortable pillows and beds! We would love to stay again as is! Suggestions from our group: Change out shower heads... The shower space is small, but just fine...good water pressure! No tub space for bathing little kids...adjustable, pull down sprayers would sure do the trick!

We would have love to have brought the dogs... Maybe someday they will be allowed just in the rec/garage space??

All in all , we LOVED the lodge! Thanks for the great accomodation!!!

Lovely Accommodations for Large Groups

  • 5 of 5

The property was perfect in accommodating my large bridal party. There were 16 people in our group and everyone had a place to sleep along with their own bathrooms to get ready in which was great.

Family Retreat

  • 5 of 5

The lodge served our family well. It was great not to have to share bathrooms as each room had its own. The lodge was equipped at a fairly basic level, but that is what we were expecting. Owner was flexible any allowed us to arrive early since there were no renters the night before.

Perfect for a family get together!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time with 19 people. Plenty of space to spread out if we wanted or stay gathered together. Enjoyed swimming, canoeing, and fishing. We would definitely recommend the lodge and consider staying there for our next gathering!
