Quiet, comfy, and well furnished. Great for Starved Rock.

  • 5 of 5

Had a great time spending a weekend here with my girlfriend and the dog. Well appointed, with a great sound system to go with the TV in the main room, a kitchen filled with utensils and appliances, and comfortable beds. Loved it.

Owner's Response: Guess you drew the short straw and ended up with the hide-a-bed or the trundle this trip! We just upgraded the double in the back bedroom to a high-quality queen mattress; and the master has the best queen money can buy. Upcoming project: turning the downstairs den into a bonafide bedroom so we can replace the couch with a bed. Look forward to hosting you next time you return to the area--we extend a 10% discount to repeat guests.

Beautiful home in a nice quiet town.

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I along with our kids wanted a weekend away before the kids head off to college. We were looking for a quiet getaway just to spend "quality" time rather than a waterpark, amusement park, etc... Well this place was perfect, situated in a small town away from the stress of a larger city. We booked this place last minute and without having any plans on doing anything but relaxing. We ended up riding some go-karts right up the road, went canoeing on beautiful Fox River, and did some hiking at nearby Starved Rock State Park. (could have spent 3 days there!!) The cabin worked perfectly for us, it had all the things needed to cook, bake, grill out, etc... We enjoyed having bonfires every night and coffee on the porch in the AM. The neigbors in the area were great, you didn't even know they were there unless you seeked them out and they had good advice on what to do in the area. The "ONLY" thing we had a problem with was finding good firewood, The nearby towns didn't have any except for a gas station a few towns away and it was way overpriced and poor quality. If you have room bring your own because the back patio at this place is perfect for bonfires and making smores. If your looking for a quiet place that has just about everything you need to relax and enjoy "family time" this place will not disappoint!! Thanks for the great weekend, we will be coming back again..
