The Villa was great for our family of five - plenty of room for everyone to sleep and relax. It was very comfortable and I loved the washing machine / dryer and two full baths. There were a couple of cleaning items, however Justine was extremely responsive, very quick to reply to all of my email, and took care of things immediately and to our expectations - thank you! Only other suggestions would be a few additional kitchen items - cookie sheet, pizza tray, salad bowl, etc., and eventually TV upgrades and wireless service would be nice for visitors.
Loved the location by Starved Rock - could walked to many of the hiking trails. We did not use any of the facilities / amenities at the Great Bear Lodge, with the exception of my kids doing a quick round of mini-golf. The State Parks had all we needed to enjoy the beautiful area. Also loved the Veranda Restaurant at the Starved Rock Lodge (with live music!) and highly recommend Nonies Bakery / Café in Utica.
Thanks again for a great stay!
