This cabin was everything we expected and more!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was fantastic! The cabin is beautiful inside and out and was perfect for a weekend away. Not only is the cabin great but the small town of Sheridan is nice too. The people in town are welcoming, their beer is cold, and the little diner up town (Calico Cafe) is an amazing breakfast spot. If you're looking for a great place to relax then you've found the right place to stay!

Beautiful, relaxing get away for both us and the kids

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay here in early March while our kids were off school for a few days! The cabin is beautiful inside and out, with comfortable beds, lovely decor, and well-equipped for children (pack n play, large 2nd bedroom, video games, and movies). If you have a toddler who loves to climb, supervision is definitely needed on the wooden stairs. Our 7, 5 and 3 year olds were fine, but would have been a challenge with a one or two year old. The kids loved the fire pit out back, along with exploring the woods and the banks of the Fox River. It was an easy drive to Starved Rock, where the waterfalls were flowing this week after the rain. We would highly recommend this property to anyone wishing to escape! We had a fabulous time.

We loved our stay!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this lovely log home for 4 nights during our trip to Starved Rock. While it is about a 30 minute drive to the park, it could not have been a more welcoming, relaxing place to come back to after a day of winter hiking. The fireplace was a favorite with the family which consists of myself, my husband, our 19 and 20 year old boys and our furry friend, Meli. The owners were delightful to deal with and answered all our questions prior to our stay. We made great memories, cooking simple meals, playing games, relaxing by the fire and hiking the park to see its beautiful winter waterfalls.

Great getaway spot to catch up with friends and family

  • 5 of 5

We had two families (7 people) meet at this wonderful cabin. All the amenities we needed were there and the quietness of the area was just what we needed. The driveway is a little tricky to navigate but that is very clear up front that this is the case. The owners were a pleasure to work with during our stay. We will definitely stay here again the next time we are in the area.

The perfect getaway for our purpose: Escape from Florida heat!

  • 4 of 5

The Woodhaven Cabin was much as the listing portrayed, secluded and quiet but close enough for us to find plenty to do. We wanted to return to the area where we lived before our full time move to Florida, be near our family, and have room for grandchildren to visit before they returned to college. The weather cooperated and we found what we had hoped for. The owners were very attentive and seemed to genuinely want us to feel at home. Our dog made sure the back deck was free of squirrels and we were able to relax. Sheridan is a nice little town and we often walked to local restaurants for breakfast or lunch. The nearby state parks provide easy getaways. We enjoyed fresh sweet corn, Rips Chicken and cold water flowing from the taps. The stuffed pizza from Francesca in Norway was as good as you will find in Chicago. When we get that urge again we would not hesitate to return or recommend this place to others.
