After your hunt, stretch your feet out in front of the fireplace and relive the day’s memories in the spacious, comfortable Lodge. This 7,000 square foot complex features a large common area of windows facing the picturesque view, 12 double-occupancy bedrooms and accommodating bathrooms. The 600 square foot Mudroom holds 24 lockers to accommodate each guest’s gear. Upstairs, enjoy gathering items to remember your stay by in the HF Pro Shop.
With a backyard overlooking Swan Lake National Wildlife Refuge, as well as our own flooded corn fields, see (and hear!) thousands of mallards descending behind the lodge during duck season sunsets. Lounge by the back patio fire pit and take in the sounds of wildlife all around you. And from delicious hot breakfasts and lunches to five star dinners, don’t plan on losing any weight during your stay! Evenings are often catered by the renowned chef Michael Abbadessa of the Pear Tree, a local landmark inducted into the Missouri Restaurant Hall of Fame. Main courses vary from night to night, but include dishes like prime rib, salmon, aged filet mignon and ribeyes. If you are lucky, your stay will land on one of the famous “pizza nights”, a favorite among our guests for years on end. Watch as Abbadessa spins out homemade, authentic Italian pizzas that fit your specific order…some of the best gourmet pizzas you’ll ever have, guaranteed! And when you are sufficiently full, pull up a stool at our 20 foot handcrafted bar with your friends and family, and discuss the next day’s “game plan” with our knowledgeable, friendly guides.
