Stayed in one of the larger whirlpool cabins with my 3 young daughters, and it was perfect! Cabin was extremely clean, there was a fully stocked kitchen, the towels and bedding were deluxe, and we loved the free movies in the office! Just a few minutes from Starved Rock and lots of cute little towns to explore. It would be... More

This is a peaceful place to stay to get away from it all. Cabins are well cared for, accommodations are comfortable. Weber grill on the back porch, great wooded view. Management seems to have thought of every thing. Highly recommended!!!!

Just back from spending the week-end at Kishauwau. It was our first time and won't be our last. We are already making plans of when we want to go back. The cabin is nothing special, a bit old fashion, but is cozy, clean and has everything you need. No TV programing or internet which at first felt weird but soon... More

My boyfriend and I stayed for just one night in early November with our dogs. I believe it was the Zonda cabin. Beautiful scenery. Cozy place with stocked kitchen, wood burning stove. Water in tub was plenty hot. There is a rule binder, which spells out a lot of things that i would consider common sense. Some construction on the... More

Peaceful, quiet, serene, relaxing, romantic, cozy, and much more. You never want to leave. We have been going here for years. The original owners were like a extended family. The legacy continues with their heirs. We go several times a year. It is always beautiful. A retreat and a treat to your soul. Did I mention the whirlpool tub, the... More

We have been guests at Kishauwau on the Vermilion River for over 20 years. The original owners, Ben and Ellen King, were dear friends of ours. We know that they would be extremely proud and happy to see how their children and their children's spouses have treated their former Kishauwau guests. They would also love to see how clean, bright,... More

Took my 13 year old son for a boys getaway and the place was better then I expected for the money. Clean spacious cabins, beautifully kept grounds, friendly fast service, excellent amenities. Yes as some reviews noted seems to be a lot of rules and regulations but nothing to detract from the stay. In fact they have the "honor" system... More

The entire management style of Kishauwau on the Vermillion changed with the passing of it's original owners, Ben and Ellen King. Ellen died 3 years ago, and even back when her health was declining, one could see the "changes" Ben's children would make. Binders with rules and policies within each cabin, rates increased for cabins, charges for firewood, or late... More

We weren't allowed to check in until 4:00 pm, in my opinion, paying full price for a day and most of your day is gone is not acceptable. The hand soap and dish soap were watered down. Whenever We went into office, more often than not no one was in. There was a board with a phone to call someone.... More

Had an absolutely wonderful time at Kishawau this past weekend 5/3-5/5/13. We were in the Commanche cabin, one of the cabins that allows dogs as we brought ours with. The cabin was warm and inviting. A wonderful cast iron stove/fireplace! Beautiful views from the cabin of the lovely wooded area. Bed was comfortable with soft sheets and blankets and soft... More
