Very relaxing and fun vacation!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second visit to Susie and Ernie's wonderful property. It was a return home of sorts for my husband who grew up in Belleville. We loaded our tandem bike into a rental van for the 820 mile drive from Raleigh, NC. My husband's Dad drove up from New Mexico. We all had a great time! The bike riding is so nice with so many fewer cars to deal with than in N.C. The weather was beautiful, and we enjoyed spending time on the patio and on the floating dock. I thought my husband was going to sleep there! Susie and Ernie are great to work with and have provided everything to make our stay enjoyable. We plan to return next year!

Peaceful, beautiful setting!

  • 5 of 5

My husband grew up near Millstadt and had been wanting to "go home" for a long time. We always use VRBO for vacation rentals and were so excited when we found this place. So we loaded up our tandem bicycle and made the 800 plus road trip from Raleigh, NC. The location and house were perfect for our trip back home. My husband's Dad also drove up from New Mexico to join us. We enjoyed visiting nearby Belleville, seeing how it has changed over the past 30 years, and riding over some of the roads my husband rode years ago! It was fun sitting on the floating dock at the small lake at the house bird watching. The accommodations had a true lodge feel with many small touches that made our stay very enjoyable. Susie was so great to work with and made us feel very welcome. We look forward to a return visit and recommend this rental for anyone looking for a place to enjoy peace and quiet and some time away from the stresses of everyday life!

Best Girls Night

  • 5 of 5

I used the lodge as a place to spend some time with my best friends before getting married the next day. It was the perfect place to take some gorgeous pictures. Everyone was so impressed with the house and had a great time!

Great for a romantic getaway or for families!

  • 5 of 5

My Girlfriend and I stayed there during the Summer of 2013 for a romantic getaway and then also for Thanksgiving 2013 with my 3 kids....both times were great. Outdoor shower is a great way to rinse off after the hot tub. Clean. Safe. Owner(s) are first rate.

I highly encourage anyone to check this hidden gem out.

Great option for a rural setting weekend retreat

  • 4 of 5

Susie & Ernie's property is a perfect setting for a retreat from the hustle & bustle of life. Lodge was perfect for 5 girls who are used to packing everything for camping; staying at the Lodge required nothing more than groceries & clothing. Lots of shady green spaces for playing bocce ball & washers or just hanging out in lawn chairs chilling out in the shade listening to KSHE all day. Waking up to a lake view and the sun setting over the water was a nice part of the experience, not to mention the hot tub was awesome early in the morning or after sunset. The Lodge feels rural, but still close enough if someone would want to drive in to Belleville, Fairview Heights, or St. Louis for some shopping therapy. We enjoyed ourselves...thanks for the hospitality!

Girls getaway

My daughters and I had a great time. The house was very comfortable, the hot tub relaxing. We had a lot of fun fishing. Susie and Ernie were very nice and were more than happy to share their property with us. We would happily stay there again!
