About the property

Cabin, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 4 Baths, (Sleeps 18)

If you're looking for a great family or multi-family trip with lots of fun activities, Grand Bear Lodge is the place for you. Only 90 minutes or less from Chicago and the surrounding suburbs, a straight drive west on highway 80.

While the kids splash and play at the indoor water park, you can enjoy snacks, frozen cocktails and cold beer at the Wave Snack shop-poolside. After fun at the pool, walk over to the Enchanted Forest, where you'll find an amazing selection of fast and fun indoor amusement park rides (think Old Chicago). Inside of the Enchanted Forest is Lumberjack's Pizzeria and Sports bar-with a TV screen the size of a Jumbo-Tron showing the game of the day. Kick back for all you can eat pizza and laugh as your friends sing Karaoke. The water park and amusement park tickets are included in the rental price.

Nature lovers can experience one of Illinois' most beautiful state parks-Starved Rock State Park-located directly across the street. Enjoy 13 miles of magnificent hiking trails with 18 canyons located right on the Illinois River.

For a day or night away, visit local towns (5 minute drive) like Utica and enjoy antiquing, authentic pubs, ice cream parlors and wine tasting from the region.

Our cabin is so spacious it can easily accommodate two or three families comfortably.

Great Condo, great resort=A Great Time!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the condo. Well stocked, very clean. More than enough room for the ten of us. We loved the resort and all the amenities that came with the condo. My one and five year old granddaughters were just the perfect age for the waterpark and we all enjoyed the amusement park and arcades. The staff is so friendly at the resort and the train that offers free rides is wonderful. We had people in our party from age one to age 83 and we all had fun. We hope to go back again soon.
