About Eric Bradshaw
I am Eric Bradshaw. I was born and raised here in the Griggsville area. This property has been apart of my family for many years as well the lodge was my home at one time. I shared my home with friends and family for special events, family reunions, community fundraisers and weddings..... My family and I now live just off site and I am only a phone call away. I enjoy working on the farm and am a strong supporter of most things Agriculturally related. My family lives here in the immediate area and I am very active in the local community. I cherish the many memories and family traditions I have made here at the lodge as my home, now I have a chance to share it with you and hear of your families wonderful traditions .

Loved this place to the MAX
Family enjoyed the Kayaks, kitchen, hot tub, early morning on the porches and the fabulous sunsets. The 24 family from 2 years of age to 79 had the time of our lives. Paddle boat, row boat and catching frogs and minnows, wonderful experiences. We were able to set a a firing range and the men and a couple of ladies joined in the fun. Spotless interior and lovely yard fire pit and S'mores. Owners very welcoming and always available. We give 6 stars and request to return next year. Will contact for dates in the fall!
Your family is so wonderful. We are so blessed to have met you all. It's inspiring to know there are still wonderful families out there that love being a family.
Your family took such great care of our cabin and left it as you found it, if not better. Our housekeeping staff were thrilled. "If all of our guests were like....."
Thank you for your kind review and we will look forward to seeing you again soon.
5 stars is an understatement. This family is safe,classy, clean, and fun.
Exactly the the families we want to see as retners in our home.
Pond was the highlight
Upon arriving everything looked great. It’s what we thought it would be. Once we started getting into the house and enjoying it we noticed a lot of things. Kitchen utensils and pans were dirty and there weren’t a lot of pots and pans. The furniture in the garage room had food stuck in it. The pillows in the bedrooms were completely stained yellow and smelled. We played cornhole in the yard by the lake and the grass was past our ankles. Only half the grill works. The downstairs was in bad shape. The beds downstairs weren’t in the best of shape for bigger adults to sleep on. The floating dock floated out to close to the bank so it was hard to enjoy at the end of our stay. The house was covered in dust and spider webs inside and out. I know it sounds like I’m complaining a lot. But to spend as much money as we did and pay for a cleaning fee I was a little upset. I’m happy that it had the pond because it really did save our trip. I don’t think we will rent again.
We enjoyed it completely!
We came here with our 6 children, 3 married with 5 grandchildren. The spacious cabin was so nice, and the laundry on all floors was a nice bonus for the mommies! Plenty of bathrooms made it easy to accommodate us all. We spent a lot of time on the water, fishing, kayaking, and swimming. It was very warm while we were here and we were glad for water to play in! Grandchildren loved it! The playful fawns ran around in the evenings, and weren't scared of us. The walk in cooler was a grand asset to hold all the food this family consumes :) . The big grill was a treat to cook on! Stacy was there when we arrived, and she gave us a nice tour, telling us all about the cabin, and how things work. She was very accommodating, and helpful! We felt at home, and would return if we ever need a place again in the Midwest. We made a lot of good memories!!
Very nice place...quiet location
We had 30 people and this place had plenty of room to accommodate us all . Plenty of activities to keep every one entertained. Would definitely recommend this place and would love to return sometime in the future .
This is a delightful place for a large family to gather in this quiet, functional place
We had everything we wanted to swim, fish, eat and just chill out together. The pond was delightful and used everyday. The kitchen served us well. The host was accommodating and helpful finding anything we needed. Geode hunting was a particularly enjoyable experience for everyone of all ages. This property easily accommodated our family of 25. We would all give this place a double thumbs up!
The property was much nicer this year. Our stay was very enjoyable.
Overall, our stay was very nice. The house was very clean and the improvements that were made were great. Our kids really enjoyed the volleyball net and we enjoyed the hot tub. Our family enjoyed the lake, swimming as well as boating with the kayaks and the paddle boat. If I had to make some suggestions to improve the property, it would be nice to have some blinds on the windows in the kitchen since the sun can make it quite warm and it can also be blinding if you sit in a certain position at the tables. Also, make sure there is enough toilet paper in each of the bathrooms. Overall, we really enjoyed our family reunion and we had plenty of room for all of us.
Our beautiful 3 story lodge feels as though your millions of miles from anywhere but yet still within 15 minutes of plenty rural attractions. We also have numerous fairs in each county during certain times of the yr, A fantastic Restaurant right on the Illinois river called the Boatel within 25 minutes of the lodge, tons of rock bottom creeks for those of you that love to look for Geodes, and some of the best deer viewing in all of Illinois. We have over 50 deer per square mile, so seeing a ton of deer is never a problem. Our lodge offers all the privacy and seclusion a person could ask for along with being just minutes away from town.
