Beautiful home in a nice quiet town.

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I along with our kids wanted a weekend away before the kids head off to college. We were looking for a quiet getaway just to spend "quality" time rather than a waterpark, amusement park, etc... Well this place was perfect, situated in a small town away from the stress of a larger city. We booked this place last minute and without having any plans on doing anything but relaxing. We ended up riding some go-karts right up the road, went canoeing on beautiful Fox River, and did some hiking at nearby Starved Rock State Park. (could have spent 3 days there!!) The cabin worked perfectly for us, it had all the things needed to cook, bake, grill out, etc... We enjoyed having bonfires every night and coffee on the porch in the AM. The neigbors in the area were great, you didn't even know they were there unless you seeked them out and they had good advice on what to do in the area. The "ONLY" thing we had a problem with was finding good firewood, The nearby towns didn't have any except for a gas station a few towns away and it was way overpriced and poor quality. If you have room bring your own because the back patio at this place is perfect for bonfires and making smores. If your looking for a quiet place that has just about everything you need to relax and enjoy "family time" this place will not disappoint!! Thanks for the great weekend, we will be coming back again..

Very nice secluded get away.

  • 5 of 5

Perfect for our family vacation. It is a nice little get away from the city. With a small rural american town nearby and larger towns around it was great for us.

Beautiful and tranquil

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay. It was nice to have a working kitchen so we didn't have to eat out each meal. We were able to relax and have our own space versus being in a hotel when you're on top of each other. It worked out perfectly as they had a place for my father to sleep on the first floor as stairs are a challenge for him. The property is beautiful. We loved walking around the grounds and checking things out. The kitchen is nicely stocked with cooking utensils and pans that were needed and the dishwasher was a bonus! We also liked having two full baths since there were six of us. We would definitely recommend this property!

Great weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this cabin for a weekend getaway with a couple friends. We had a relaxing time cooking, playing games, and just chatting. The owners are great at responding back if there are any questions or concerns. Some small suggestions to future renters - take your own non-stick pans if needed - the ones provided are heavily scratched, and take flashlights if you have a dog - the exterior grounds are not lit. All in all, we enjoyed our stay and will consider it again in the future!
