Tucked into the state Park, this beautiful Inn with it's private cabins is the perfect weekend get away. Each cabin is small, complete with fireplace, Queen bed, candles, bathroom, and TV. Community bonfire circles are perfect for sitting under the stars toasting marshmallows. Hiking trails are well marked and allow for beautiful views of the park and wildlife. No trail... More

The rehearsal and reception dinners were both at the lodge; the food was good for rehearsal and outstanding for the wedding supper The wait staff was very accommodating and helpful without being intrusive. The lodging was great too with the beautiful rustic cabins and the surrounding forested park. The wedding took place at the "Wedding Canyon" and was lovely; the... More

The only bad thing about the cabins at White Pines Forest State Park is that they are not winterized so they're not open year long while the park is. I find hiking or snowshoeing through White Pines even more beautiful than hiking in the summer. But what if you don't want to drive home after all that activity at the... More

Fun little cabin getaway from the city - just an hour and a half drive from the western Chicago suburbs. Great for a romantic night away from home. The CCC architecture and gas fireplace in each cabin makes it cozy. Food at the cafe was good and the area was pretty for a short hike. Pillows were not particularly comfortable,... More

Every year, on the first weekend of May, the Tri-County Gun Club holds their annual "Open House" weekend event in Polo, IL. That's quite a long haul from my homes and so I usually stay in a cabin at White Pines State Park. They're the best lodging in the area in terms of convenient location, wonderful setting, and availability of... More

Spent the night in a cozy cabin at White Pines. The cabin had a nice bed and a working fireplace. We go hiking at White Pines a lot, so it was fun to stay there. We ate dinner at the restaurant which was awesome. I had the fish and chips and my wife had the chicken pot pie. Both were... More

We were looking for a weekend sisters' getaway not too far from Chicago. Not quite 2 hours away is this gem -- cabins in the piney woods. Not fancy or new, they are very clean & charming, right in the middle of a State park. The first night we stayed in Cabin #23 which was stand-alone cabin, cozy & quiet.... More

We stayed here for the opening weekend of the season, as part of a large party gathering, and it turned out to be just what my husband and I needed to renew our marriage. There are so many GREAT things about this place, from the friendly, helpful staff, to the cozy, comfortable cabins, to the pristine grounds, the adorable gift... More

This was, I believe, our 4th or 5th trip to the White Pines State Park in about 7 years. They have 13? CCC log cabins with a bedroom/main room with fireplace and a full bath. Sleeps 4 if you use the trundle bed. These cabins are quaint, well-maintained, and at least 75 years old. They also have bigger cabins, but... More
