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.

Weekend in Utica
Beautiful, quiet area on resort. Cabin was so clean and comfortable. The hosts thought of everything.
We went with our children to hike Starved Rock and Matthieson, then see Ottawa. Susan's cabin was perfect to come back to - lots of room for everyone.
We would recommend this place and go again. Thank you.
More than adequate for our needs. Wonderful restful space but would say we did not like the lodge. Grateful we rented from Susan!
Beautiful property, great layout - spacious - Wonderful ;-)
The location to the Grizzley Jack's resort was great, a short walk with children, no problem. This property has a beautiful look and a great layout - the spacious bedrooms and great room for great fun :-) We look forward to renting this property again and again;)
We enjoyed our stay. The property is clean and well equipped. I had stayed in similar cabin before but susans cabin was much better maintained than our previous one. Susan is very quick in her response to any query which is always helpful.
Would stay at this place again with out hisitation .
Place was real clean and kept up with . Susan was very good to deal with . Let us know she was there if we needed her.
We had 10 girls stay here for a hiking and wine weekend, it was too perfect! The cabin is even bigger than we expected but still had a nice home like feel to it. It was a very hot weekend, so the air conditioning felt so nice after our hikes, which were just minutes down the road from our place. Would absolutely stay here again!
