Bob Filer purchased this house in 2007
The property is in the center of Stared Rock State Park. As a Birder I enjoy deep woods birds coming to the feeders. Feeders are located on the deck for viewing from kitchen and dinning room.
Had an awesome trip on girls weekend ... Bob was waiting with wine and donuts ... what a nice touch.
Canyon View was a perfect location for a family getaway! Plenty of space for a big family and Bob provided many great amenities. He was great to work with. I would definitely recommend this property to anyone looking to travel to the Starved Rock area! We will be staying again!
Very nice stay overall. Kitchen well supplied for meal prep. Plenty of towels although we brought our own. Bathrooms were dirty. Downstairs bathroom shower scalding hot water, no cold. Were we're unable to shower there (so down to one working shower). Upstairs toilet leaked and was not stable (so only one useable toilet). Outside of house was great. Overall comfortable house that needs so work.
Some friends and I got together for a weekend of Starved Rock hiking and reminiscing. It slept 5 adults very comfortable with plenty of space and amenities.
Thank you for such great accomodation!.
The house is beautiful and everything you would need is provided. From wood for indoor fireplace, to wood for fireplace on back deck, as well as a fire pit in backyard. Bob even left us wine and pastries for breakfast. Also plenty of room to sit around table to talk and eat, plus the living room had plenty of couches and chairs for sitting around the fireplace. He also,provided toys if you are bringing little ones. He has bird feeders for bird watching and excellent sleeping areas. We would definitely rent his home again. Plus he met us there and was so,nice and full of knowledge of the area, besides all,the information pamphlets he left. You are also very close to starved rock lodge. I give this place a 5 out of 5
We stayed at Canyon View Place with some very dear friends visiting us from England. Bob met us at his house and showed us around the comfortable property. It is a well furnished rental, close to Starved Rock that more than met our needs. This property had everything we needed for our trip. We spent a great evening out on the deck watching the antics of the resident hummingbirds! Thanks to Bob we had yummy breakfast treats as well as a glass of wine with our toasted Marshmallows! Bob certainly does a good job as host! The only downside as most have already mentioned is the well water but Bob provides ample water for drinking and cooking so it is not really an issue. Thanks Bob we all had a great relaxing few days.
