Thank you Kishauwau Cabins and wonderful staff, you have a beautiful place. We stayed 2 nights mid week at Osage cabin where everything was beautiful and in excellent working order. The beautiful grounds, magnificent trees and grounds made it peaceful and serene. A great place to just sit back and relax. I especially love the hot tub and the bed... More

Where do we start? With the comfortable, tastefully decorated cabins? That the owners thought of, really, everything? The great view from each cabin? The out-of-the-way location that's surprisingly easy to get to? The reasonable rates? The relaxing peace and quiet? It's all top-notch. We traveled here with the Mother-in-law and she had her own boom and bath. As such it... More

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

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Formerly a popular Boy Scout camp in the shadow of Starved Rock State Park, Kishauwau Country Cabins features cabins that have been beautifully renovated and constructed to blend country charm with modern conveniences. Kishauwau Country Cabins offers rental luxury cabins for weekend, weeknight, and all-week getaways. Cabins with fully equipped kitchens, personal outdoor bonfire pits, and secluded living await you for your anniversary, family reunion, honeymoon, or other special occasion. Or, of course, a simple getaway to recharge your batteries. Look under each cabin category to see what our customers have to say about us. But don't take their word for it, come see for yourself. You won't be sorry. Close by you'll find four state parks-Starved Rock State Park, Matthiessen State Park, Buffalo Rock State Park, and Illini State Park-that offer a multitude of recreational opportunities. Bicycling, hiking, horseback riding, golfing and cross-country skiing are just a few of the many fun-filled activities or simply enjoy the 1/2 mile hiking trail leading to the Vermilion River right on our property. During the year there are many county fairs, flea markets, auctions, and other local activities available. ... more   less
