About The Owner

My wife and I purchased this property in 2006. We fell in love with the location and the atmosphere this property exuded. After 30 years of traveling with the family, we felt that this property exemplified what all of us could enjoy at any age. Young to old(us) there is something for everyone separately and together. The memories that we have created in just the short time that we have owned, have already made this the favorite place for the family to vacation.

The Owner purchased this cabin in 2006

Why The Owner chose Utica

Just across the street from Starved Rock State Park which provides a rich history and awesome hiking, the location just cannot be beat. Although you feel as though you are out in the middle of nowhere, you are just a few miles from a mall with stores, restaurants and a movie theatre.

A 1/2 mile in any direction brings you to horse-back riding and the Illinois River. There are locations to canoe or just hike and view the various waterfalls.

The river has a marina with boat rentals as well as jet-ski rentals and pleasure boats.

What makes this cabin unique

Some of my favorite moments are sitting quietly outside with my coffee in the morning and listening to the birds and nothing else. It is so peaceful. The other favorite time of day is watching the sun set over the trees and listening to the quietness. A welcome change from the hectic pace of home. Although the resort does not allow pets, just a few miles down the street is Paws Here Pet Resort which gives the best care and pampering of your animal family member. You are close enough to pick them up and go for morning or evening walks and play.

Wonderful accommodations

  • 5 of 5
This "Cabin" is incredible. Very spacious and sits on a nice lot--much more backyard space that other lots. The owner was very easy to work with and prompt in responding to questions. It was the perfect setting for a small gathering of friends and family and wonderful accommodations for several family members.

Lovely property for a big group, convenient to state parks

  • 5 of 5
When four families converged on this house from all over the country, we were delighted to find a bright, clean, lovely home in a cute family resort that was convenient to local attractions.

The 55th anniversary couple took the lovely master suite on the third floor, and the rest of us spread out in the large bunk room, the double double bedroom with the hot tub, and sleeper couches. Even with our large group there was no waiting on bathrooms, with four spotless well-appointed ones available.

It's an end unit of a group of four townhouses that is very quiet and private feeling. The back deck overlooks a lawn and pond, and is a lovely place to sit and have morning coffee. Speaking of coffee, the kitchen is well equipped, from a good quality coffee maker to plenty of stemware and everything in between. We really didn't need to bring anything but food.

We enjoyed hopping the little "train" that circles the resort property just for kicks. We also enjoyed (after some wails from the teens) not having wifi in the house. There's good wifi in the lodge, if anyone needs it. The TVs get local channels, and we could have watched DVDs, but quite honestly, when we were in the house it was just like olden times -- board games for hours (there are some in the house, if you don't bring your own).

Highly recommend walking the trails at Mathison and Starved Rock State Parks and doing a canoe trip (we used C&M rentals and they were terrific). We were already talking about coming back as were loading the cars to leave.

The owner is lovely, communicates well, and deals with issues swiftly. Can't ask for better. Thanks, Diane!

Huge, Clean, Nicely Priced Rental

  • 5 of 5
The place was absolutely wonderful! The pictures don’t do it justice with how large and well kept this house is. It has an excellent location, just a short drive from Starved Rock and terrific back deck that can accommodate everyone. When I was booking, I saw it listed as sleeping 18 and originally thought we might be a little cramped; not at all, we had more than enough room. Overall the experience was everything in the description and more. The house was spacious, well equipped, and Diane made everything so easy. And I forgot to mention, how can you beat that price? Thanks Diane! I received requests to make this an annual trip, so I might be in contact next summer.
