"Our family held our semi-annual family reunion at Oak Terrace Resort & Spa for the first time on July, 12th, 2015. We were all delighted with the service you provided, the dinner buffet meal was great and the events center room was comfortable and nice. We are all very happy with the whole event and the accommodations at the resort. We will definitely come back to Oak Terrace for our next reunion in 2017. Thanks again for your great service!" ~ Harold - Fort Collins, IL
"Good Morning. I wanted to send a note to say"Thank you" again for a wonderful time here at Oak Terrace. As the new year starts, as in the past, Faye and I always make a note of reminder that when we need a escape, all we have to do is call Oak Terrace and ask when we can come, and the friendly staff make all the arrangements. When we speak with the staff members, they are so proud of Oak Terrace, that they make us feel like family. To me this is one of the main reason we return. It has been over 12 years now and we enjoy each and every trip. To the Beyers family.... our prayer is that God Blessing be with you not only today, but everyday."
~Brad & Faye - Edwardsville, IL
