Property description

Enjoy natural beauty and wildlife at this unique retreat. Buck Run sits on 40 beautiful acres of pristine prairie. The fully-renovated lodge is ideal for family gatherings, reunions with friends, or business events. The Lodge includes a Great Room plus dining and living rooms that can accommodate 30-40 for a meal, reception, or party.

The Lodge is versatile, designed to support events ranging from conference meetings, company retreats or intimate weekend getaways. A 50x15 conference room is lined with Oregon alder wood. A field-stone fireplace, built with stones from the property, serves as the focal point of the room which overlooks the pond.

Buck Run Lodge also features modern amenities to make your stay luxurious. A fully-appointed kitchen connects to the dining room--perfect for enjoying special meals. Off the dining room, enjoy the wrap-around deck overlooking the large, private pond, a place to socialize, watch the sunrise or sunset, or admire the wildlife and beautiful flora.

The Lodge has 4 bedrooms. Three bedrooms include a queen-sized bed and 1 bedroom offers 2 double beds. The Lodge has two full-bathrooms, one of which is handicap accessible.

Buck Run Lodge is located in Anita, Iowa, which is midpoint between Omaha, Nebraska, and Des Moines, Iowa.
