2nd Trip

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Heritage 1865 in 2015, and this time brought my wife's entire family with us. It was a very relaxing vacation. Perfect for a weekend get-away. The kids had a blast swimming, playing in the sand, fishing, etc. There's more than enough room and things to do so that everyone has their own space. You are there to enjoy nature and the lake, so there is little to no expense once you are there. Just bring your own food for your meals and you are set. Obviously we liked it enough to make a return visit, and I'm sure this won't be our last. Hopefully we will make it an annual event!

Wonderful time at Heritage 1865

  • 5 of 5

Our entire family enjoyed our recent stay at Heritage 1865. Located in rural south central Iowa the property is very peaceful and relaxing, as well as far away from the hustle and bustle that you encounter on most family vacations at theme parks or resorts. The lodge is perfect for groups, with great bedroom and bathroom and kitchen accommodations as well as plenty of indoor space for lounging. The grounds are very well kept, and the pond was a big hit with those that wanted to fish, with lots of action on bluegill and small mouth bass. The staff was very attentive to any requests. Highly recommend you consider Heritage 1865 for your next family vacation or hunting trip.

Great place for creating family memories!

  • 5 of 5

This lodge was perfect for our summer vacation! The grandkids loved the pond and activities available onsite. Bedrooms were air-conditioned and spacious. Not too far from the lake. We are looking forward to booking it again next year!

The cabin and the property it sits on are stunning.perfect for a truly secluded getaway

  • 5 of 5

This was our second trip to this spectacular place.

We are hoping to make this our annual family vacation spot.

Since the property is secluded and the cabin is so spacious it provides the room to roam for us all.

With 6 adults and children 4 to 15 everyone found their own spot.

The fishing was great even for the little girls.

They were hooking fish as soon as they threw the line in.

The teens had fun fishing from the paddle boats and kayaks and my daughter and daughter in law enjoyed some reading while floating on the kayaks

There is everything you need to feel right at home.The kitchen is great to work in with lots of people. Open and has everything you can think of.

We had a small issue with one of the a/c units and they were right there to have a look.

We have nothing but great things to say about the cabin property and the Ewing family are the best.They treat you like family
