The Mother-in-Law cabin was clean comfortable and perfect for us and our dog. Hearing the frogs in the pond and being lulled to sleep by an owl was very relaxing. Great location for visiting Starved Rock and Matthiessen State Parks. (stay away from Buffalo Rock State Park)

Cabins were very clean and in excellent condition. Sheets and towels the type you would find in an expensive hotel. Warm staff and we loved all the free movies available to borrow from the office. Truly a relaxing getaway!

Held a sort of small reunion with some old friends. We were looking for a quiet place to grill, sit by the fire and hang out at a table. This place was absolutely perfect. The cabins were clean and serene, it provided the atmosphere we were looking for and we are all ready looking at booking for the fall. Could... More

Kyle, We are so glad you all enjoyed your stay with us and we thank you for taking the time to tell others about your experience here. If you are seriously thinking of fall I would get it booked now. Only 1 weekend left on the Grandma's cabin in October unless you plan on doing weekdays. Terisa King and the... More

This was our first time here and I thought it was perfect. Only 1.5 hours from the hustle and bustle of our suburban home we found our Country Cabin spacious and cozy. I came prepared with bug spray and items I knew I'd want to cook with. Even though most items were available, some items were very spare (like plates).... More

Susan, We love that you enjoyed your stay with us so much. We are desperately trying to get the kitchens up to par this year but I will say, the purchase list is endless. We also struggle with large reunions constantly switching items to other cabins and find it very difficult to keep it all straight with as busy as... More

awesome place very clean and the staff is allways willing to help you or do what it takes to make our weekend happen. modern but rustic enough to give us the log cabin effect and enjoy the wood burners and sitting on the deck listening to the river.

My husband and I have been going to these cabins on our anniversary on and off for 15 years. They are the perfect place to go for a weekend get away when life is too hectic and you need to slow down. The cabins are secluded but fully stocked for relaxation and close to Starved Rock if you love hiking... More

This is not an area that immediately springs to the mind of the British traveller but it gave a good starting point to explore the great rivers. The site is beautifully maintained and very quiet and the cabin we had was spacious and comfortable. The bathroom was starting to look ready for a facelift and bearing in mind the remoteness...

What I liked the most about Kishauwau Country cabins is: 1) Roomy, clean cabins, 2) Everything but shampoo, conditioner, ice and wood are included (linens, towels, soap, TV, DVD player), 3) Secluded in the woods - no cabins are near yours, 4) Friendly staff, 5) Clean, beautiful grounds, 6) Covered large patio with chairs and table, 7) Great location (10...

This is our fourth stay at Kishauwau Country Cabins, and as usual the accommodations were excellent. The grounds were in excellent condition, the staff very warm and inviting, and the cabin was perfect. If your looking for a place to escape the "rat race" of life this is it. We both highly recommend this for your next getaway! Whether it... More

Love this place. We have been here twice and already booked again for August. We have also stayed at the cabins at Starved Rock and prefer Kishauwau. So relaxing, great host, hiking and tubing down the Vermilion.
