Cabin, 3 Bedrooms, 4 Baths, (Sleeps 12)
My husband and I truly love the Starved Rock area. Both of us like running, so there’s nothing like stepping out our door onto some of Illinois’ most coveted trails. We are also avid cyclists and enjoy being only moments away from the I&M trail system, and about 30 minutes from the Hennepin Canal. I also enjoy birding, which keeps me plenty busy given the area’s diverse eco-systems. And can’t forget to mention the local golf is great.
Susan purchased this Cabin in 2006
Why Susan chose Oglesby
Starved Rock is the perfect weekend getaway for us. While the trails allure most of us, there are plenty of opportunities for everyone: horseback riding, canoeing, boating, fishing, star gazing, or just taking time to relax with friends and family. We love the local shopping, so be sure to stop by the quaint little town of Utica which is full of charm. Try a tasting at one of two wine shops and then pick up some gourmet popcorn or cupcakes. Afterwards, don’t forget to stop by Duffy’s for a great burger.
What makes this Cabin unique
Since we're nature buffs, there was no better location for us than to be tucked in the back of the resort with the wildlife preservation as our backdrop. Lounging on the deck is perfect for relaxing moments. Grab a cup of coffee, close your eyes, and listen to nature’s symphony. There’s nothing like it.

Family Weekend Away
We loved your property! The perfect house for a small family getaway-super clean, warm, and welcoming!
Property had almost anything we needed...kitchen stocked with more pots and pans and knives, etc that creating 2 holiday meals there was perfect.
Only tiny recommendation...when you are having 12 adults sleep over for 2 nights, should be more toilet paper available. We seemed to run out and had to supplement.
So glad you had a fantastic stay. We really try to go above and beyond stocking our cabin, so you can imagine our surprise when we learned you ran out of toilet paper. Each weekend stay includes (8) rolls of toilet paper; we've never had guests run out before. We appreciate your feedback and will have cleaning stash an extra roll or two.
Nice home, owner very nice and accommodating, well stocked kitchen.
Great Family Christmas
Our family Christmas at your cabin was absolutely awesome. Every year I think our memories can't get any better and this year proved me wrong again. I think all of us had the most fun that we have ever had. Such a relaxing place to enjoy our family. We had so many card games and so much food and so much laughing and enjoying the surroundings.. We had a couple of peacocks that came to visit each day.which was so much fun for the kids to watch. Thanks so very much for sharing your cabin with our family. Everything was so clean and the cabin is stocked so well. Such great memories were made and everyone was talking about a return trip next Christmas. I'm sure I'll be in touch with you next year. Have a wonderful Christmas and a Happy New Year. Sally Farrell
I'm so glad your family enjoyed our "resident" peacocks! They've become regular visitors around our cabin this past year....they seem to love the quiet space out back. We can't thank you enough for all your return visits. Really means a lot to us! Merry Christmas to you all!
Wonderful weekend getaway
We rented this cabin for a short weekend of hiking at Starved Rock. We had no complaints. The location has a great view, the cabin was clean, spacious and well-appointed, and we had a wonderful time. Thank you!
