I went with my boyfriend, and we had a great time. Very secluded, very comfy bed, and tons of channels on the TV. Everything is very clean. There was a deer family that came around two of the four days we were there. I would definitely recommend this place to a friend. A great place to visit to get away... More

We spent two nights at the Nest. It was in a good, central location for the day trip to Galena, IL. The nearby state park was absolutely beautiful, with breathtaking views of the Mississippi. The cabin was cozy and private, with a very comfortable bed. The kitchen was nice, the only drawback was no stove. We would have like to... More

Had a great 3 night stay in the starlight. Our host Al was very attentive to make sure our stay was very quiet. even though it was cold out the cabin is kept warm by a gas fireplace. The hot tub is clean and temp was perfect. Went to the grocery before we checked in and didn't have to leave... More

My husband and I had a 2 night stay at the nest. It was our wedding night and it was fabulous. It was so peaceful, all the stress of the days leading up to it were absorbed in that bed... What a wonderful place. Our cabin was the starlight and it was very comfy, the hot tub was very relaxing... More

We chose the Nest based on the availability of the following in the descriptions: Bikes available Walking distance to the state park Hot tub Outdoor space for AM coffee The bikes were dusty/spider webby but they were in a barn so that is expected, but if you knew you had guests wouldn't you clean them? No matter, the big problem... More

We booked a cabin not knowing what to expect. The place far exceeded our wildest dreams. Maggie is the best. Her attention to detail is second to none. The cabin was everything it was suppose to be and more. Upon opening the door I was shocked at the size. Very roomy for 2 people. The bed sucked you in and... More

My husband and I found The Nest two years ago for our honeymoon. We loved the cabin and the location. Once we arrived we were pleasantly surprised at how secluded we felt. Yes the cabin is a bit dated as some would say but my husband and I loved the look. The owners do not intrude but if you need... More

The Nest is the BEST" as one traveler put it. Perfect for a romantic and unique get a way from the hustle and bustle of the big city. Quiet, serene, secluded, did I say romantic? We stayed in the Starlight cabin, which was very cozy and quaint. Big city dwellers BEWARE, you're in the woods there are bugs!!! The Starlight... More

We do not purposely mislead anyone & have never said there are views of the River from the Cabins. The River is just down the Bluffs & a 5-min walk into the Park to the edge of the Bluffs that overlook the River. Main Street is parallel & next to the River & has several Docks.. There are many beautiful... More
