A western Illinois tourist destination announces an expansion to introduce the area to a new audience.

In a press release, Harpole’s Heartland Lodge in rural Pike County, Illinois, announced they are building luxury cabins for couples and families, to go with their lodges that have been welcoming guests to the area since 1995.

According to Heartland Lodge’s Gary Harpole, their prime goal is to enhance the lodge’s draw to the area. But, they also want visitors to the lodge to all the area has to offer, with Hannibal, Quincy and Calhoun County, Illinois, all within easy driving distance.

Advance reservations are now being taken for the new luxury cabins, with a projected opening date of next April.
