We had a wonderful stay at the lodge. We would highly recommend it. We had 4 families of 4, 16 total with more than enough space.
Set in a beautiful country side! The lodge is a great place to come and stay to get away. Had a great experience! Food was wonderful, lodge is clean, Mo and Ron Plattner are wonderful people!! I'd recommend coming to stay to enjoy to outdoors, even if your not a hunter.Hope to get there soon!!
We had a wonderful time at the lodge with a group of families to celebrate a birthday. The Plattner's are wonderful hosts! Clean & comfortable with all the amenities you need. Delicious food, great friends, drinks around the fire pit. We heard coyotes and admired the hummingbirds. Highly recommend!
Great get a way for everyone. The entire complex is fantastic. The food, lodging, fire pit, hanging out with good friends, could not be any better. Great place.
My wife and I scheduled the lodge for a couple of days over the 4th of July. We had numerous friends coming into town for a wedding, and always prefer to stay some place together to maximize our catch up time. This lodge was the perfect place, as it was out of the normal busy area and could easily accommodate our entire group. The Plattners were wonderful, with Mr. Plattner being kind enough to show us around the lodge upon check in and share a few laughs. He stated that we needn't worry about being too loud (I'm sure we were), and they had more than enough houseware/dishware/storage for all of our needs. The beds were very comfortable, the entire place was clean, and it was all immaculately set up for our entire time.
I would highly recommend this lodge to anyone (large or small groups), and want to give a huge thank you to the Plattners for their wonderful hospitality. If we're ever up that way again, we know where we plan to stay!
This lodge easily fit our group of 6 adults and 8 kids. We wanted to visit the Lincoln Museum and Lake Springfield and the lodge was a great launching point for these day trips. The lodge is very clean and spacious. The yard is great for kids to explore and play in. We used the fire pit every night. The owners catered a meal on Saturday evening which was outstanding. Great place!
