My two sisters and I stayed here for a girl's weekend and had a great time! The cabin is beautiful inside and out. It is very spacious and had everything we needed to stay inside and relax. We will definitely be coming back here again! Thank you Candice and Leigh Ann!
Greatly over-rated and not visitor-friendly.
We were quite disappointed in the home--to the point that we left a day early because we couldn't handle staying there. Among the issues: (1) the access "road" was unmarked, unpaved, unlit, and very narrow. If you happened to try to reach the house after dark, you most likely would never find it. The last ten yards were basically at a 45-degree angle, to reach the paved driveway. In fact, a better description of the driveway would be a pad--adequate only for one car. (2) the interior of the house can best be described as cluttered, not quaint. Debris in the closets, as the owners left little empty storage space for visitors' clothes and/or luggage. Most rental houses we've used in the past have had one locked owner closet and perhaps some modest storage in the garage. This property had maybe half of one half of one closet that could be used to hang visitors' clothes. The garage was strewn with owner items. The refrigerator had a number of containers with leftover salad dressings and condiments, that had not been removed by the cleaning crew. (3) Electronics were complicated and lacked helpful instructions; some didn't work at all. (4) There must have been fifty light switches in the house, none of which were labeled, so we had a lot of detective work to do. When we did figure things out, a number of the lights turned not to work, especially the ceiling lights. A couple of the table lamps were held together with rubber bands; we refrained from using them because of concern with a potential fire hazard. (5) We could not find the control anywhere to open the garage door (again, no instructions or labelling) and consequently had to leave our car outside over night. (6) And worst: the stairway to the second floor--which is where the bedrooms are--was simply dangerous. It was made of treated old logs; the steps were narrow; the surfaces were uneven; there were no risers; and there was only one hand rail. The latter would not normally be a problem, but in this case the stairway was not along a wall but in the open middle of the living room, which meant that one side was completely unprotected. Simply unsuitable for just about anyone, but potentially lethal for seniors and young children. In all, then, not a good experience.
Lovely cabin in the woods
We enjoyed our time at this cabin. The cabin has some cute little touches to make it feel homey and is very clean. It truly does have that 'up north' feel and the covered front porch was amazing to sit on in the evening...
Wonderful, cozy cabin.
Great place, great location. Clean as a whistle and super-comfy beds!
This is a quiet wooded oasis, a sparkling gem in the middle of nowhere.
This is a true log cabin house inside and out. High ceilings with log beams take your breath away when you first walk in. Everything is very neat and clean but feels homey. The heavily wooded yard is filled with flowering plants and tasteful yard ornaments and bird houses tucked here and there. The porch is heavenly for drinking coffee in the morning and watching the river below and the various creatures here and there. Quiet neighborhood but close to town and activities. The owners are very friendly and inviting..
Great Cabin !!!! Clean, Quiet and Peaceful
Our 2nd time renting this Cabin and we had a Great time again.
The Cabin was very Clean, Located in a Quiet secluded area, Neighbors are very friendly. Fishing is good, we loved the back yard with the Fire pit, Grill but the best is relaxing around the Fire pit and enjoying the views and Nature. We will be back !!!!
Relax in this log cabin getaway in woods overlooking Fox River or use it as your home away from home to explore Starved Rock State Park and other nearby forest preserves, canoe/kayak the Fox River, Ski Dive Chicago or visit area wineries and antique stores.
