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!

beutiful outside nice house

  • 3 of 5

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.

Owner's Response: Not the best review from what i believe was a 10 plus party beer blast interested in location of our outdoor security cameras. The same party helping themselves to $120 worth of neighbors firewood. Most guests find the inside of the home beautiful, very clean and fully functional.

Beautiful and every need is thought of

  • 5 of 5

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

Great home close to Starved Rock

  • 5 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.
