Great place! The scenery was beautiful and the owners were awesome!
Amazing cabin and country setting!
We make a point of welcoming our guests soon after arrival, answering any questions they have. One of the pleasures we receive is knowing where they are from and the reason their group is staying at Buck Run Lodge. We offer a private rural Iowa atmosphere that is very appealing to city guests. This group of young men were so friendly and respectful of the Lodge. Jim and Kathie
Great place for the weekend. The location is great and the atmosphere is peaceful and quite.
We had a wonderful weekend at the lodge, there is plenty of room and the landscape is bieutiful. There are many activities on site and around Anita to stay busy.
Just what we needed!
4 adults and 5 late teen swimmer used this as our base of operations when we attended 2016 Olympic swimming trials in Omaha. The accommodations were perfect for us. The swimmers used the boat on the pond (5 in the boat was a FULL LOAD), but they enjoyed paddling around the lake and discovering the frogs and other pond wildlife. The house had all the dishes, bowls, and etc for us to feed the crew (some steak knives would be good), but we did find enough knives to manage. The grill was small for the size of the house and fairly wobbly, but it worked fine. Our stay at Buck Run Lodge was a roaring success and We all endorse it wholeheartedly! Thank you~~
A wonderful retreat
The property is located in a very beautiful and quiet location, yet close enough to Anita for a quick run if you forgot something. It was very well maintained and very clean. All we had to do when we arrived was put our things away and start enjoying. The day following our arrival the owner stop by just to make sure that everything was alright. This is a great place for nice weekend retreat and family get-together. Lot's of room for a big family.
