Explore gardens of native plants, get up close and personal with an American Buffalo herd, or hike amidst our rolling fields and lakes.
Owners, Amy & Michael Billings, purchased the 200 acre ranch in 2008, leaving behind city-life to fully indulge in nature. Dreamers at heart, they often imagined buffalo wandering among the lush pastures. In 2011, they took the plunge and acquired a young herd and feel blessed and honored to provide a home for such majestic, awe-inspiring creatures.
After witnessing the joy that visits brought to family and friends, they expanded their vision to include Buffalo Lodge, a premier destination for weddings, retreats, and getaways. The response went beyond expectations and led to the decision to build a state-of-the-art reception facility featuring green technology. The Roosevelt at Buffalo Lodge opens March 2014 and offers guests all the luxury they expect while being sensitive to the beauty that surrounds it.
Discover a natural, beautiful venue for your special day. A place where your aisle is a stone path, your stained glass is a prairie meadow, and your steeple, the azure sky.
Let the quiet wind, melodious sounds of the natural wildlife, and 200 acres of fields and ponds provide you with the ideal setting for your next corporate retreat.
Enjoy the rustic feel of our Amish-built lodge or meet in one of our breakout rooms. In between sessions, take a hike past American Buffalo, drop a line into a softly waiting lake, or just sit and watch the wildlife.
Buffalo Lodge offers breakout rooms and outdoor spaces perfect for group collaboration and learning. From wi-fi to a projector and screen to a 60” HDTV, we have your multimedia needs covered. For bigger groups, The Hangar offers 2400 square feet and an outdoor patio. When you’re done, explore the grounds with a guided buffalo tour on our hay wagon or just spread a blanket in a field and count the stars on the night’s ceiling.
Come home to a place where buffalo still roam. Where you can put life on hold and escape to a world where your neighbors are buffalo, and your wake-up call is the warm sun with a hot cup of coffee.
With 200 wild and waiting acres ready to be explored, you won’t run out of options. But don’t worry, a sturdy, Amish-built lodge bedroom is waiting for you to recharge your batteries for tomorrow.
Buffalo Lodge itself offers four bedrooms and five baths crafted from Southern Yellow Pine, as well as an art gallery and home theater room. Check out our guided buffalo tour, go geocaching, lend a hand and work the ranch for a day, or just stand together in amazement at twinkling stars, dancing wildflowers, crackling fires, and acres of windswept fields. And watch as your natural life unfolds beneath our skies.
