Overview

About the property

3 Bedrooms, 4 Bathrooms, Sleeps 16

Read our reviews! The best advertisement money can't buy!

GLAMping, family reunions, bachelor/bachelorette parties, Yoga/church retreat, stay-cation, etc... You name it, this is the perfect spot for you and your group to stay. Please read reviews! I take care of my guests very well.

This beautiful 3 bedroom 4 bath cabin at Grizzly Jack's Grand Bear Resort is available to rent out at a fraction of the cost of renting thru the resort. The 2800 sq foot unit is located on the west side of the property, in a quiet nook. Close enough to hike to Starved Rock's Canyons!

The cabin offers sleeping arrangements for 16 guests including:

1 King (sleeps 2)in the Master Suite with jetted whirlpool tub

2 Queens (2 each) in the 2nd Master Suite with a jetted whirlpool tub

2 Sets of bunk beds in 3rd bedroom with twins (1ea) on top and Queens (2ea) on bottom.

There are also 2 pull out couches (1 in the living room and 1 upstairs in the master). Sleeps 2 each. Now with Serta pillow top mattress toppers! We've got an air mattress in a closet as well if needed.

The living room boasts a grand fireplace, 55" flat screen tv, seating for 20, and a back door to walk straight out to a small patio.

Only one working fireplace - in living room. Fireplace is shut off from May - August.

Linens, towels, dishes, pots, pans, utensils, coffee pot and filters, hand soap, dish soap, paper towels, and basic spices are all provided for your convenience!

I provide one towel per guest per 3 night stay. I suggest bringing towels if you'd like more. Although there are dishes provided, I suggest bringing paper plates, plastic cups, and napkins. Nobody likes doing dishes on vacation!

Early check-in available, just ask!

*This cabin does not include the daily pass to the waterpark. I can not guarantee that it will even be open on your dates of travel. The cabins are run separately from the lodge. Please call Grand Bear directly to see if passes are available the day of your stay! Ask if they are selling to the public.

There is no longer a grill. Our HOA prohibits it and now they're cracking down on us. If there's a fire because of it, our insurance won't cover it. :(

25 year old age minimum to rent!

Your dates are secured when you pay. There is no maid service provided, or laundry available. Please inquire if this something your party requires.

Please inquire with any special circumstances. I am easy to work with! Thank you!

Sleeping arrangements for 16 includes 2 sleeping per bed mentioned, 1 per top bunk.

Fabulous place..fabulous time!

  • 5 of 5

We celebrated our 50th anniversary here. 14 of us! There was plenty of room for everyone. The cabin was spacious and had everything we needed. It was so clean! Lots of green space to play games. Add Starved Rock State Park with the river flowing for Kayaking, space for picnicking and the many hiking trails and you have perfection. The owner, Kayte, was so helpful with any question we had. She was a blessing. Thanks!

Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

This cabin was great! The location is within walking distance of the indoor water park and Grand Bear Lodge. A short drive away is Starved Rock State Park with miles of hiking trails for all levels of proficiency. The person we rented this from was outstanding to work with (thank you) and the cabin was in great shape. There was plenty of room for all of us and the facilities were working very well. We all had a great time and would definitely do it again!

Great for families

  • 5 of 5

My extended family really enjoyed our stay at the cabin. It was a great layout for a multi-generation gathering. The cabin is clean and Kayte responds quickly to questions and has information on the area. Starved Rock Park is beautiful. The grandchildren are asking to stay there again soon.

Wonderful!

Had a great time! Glad we stayed here instead of the resort. A lot more space and more updated! Even though it did not include the water park it was worth it! Hope to come again soon and would definitely book through Kayte, she was a joy to deal with.
