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.

My boyfriend booked this trip for us and it was just the perfect location. Our cabin was clean, quiet and well supplied. Even though the facility was completely full for Memorial Day weekend, you couldn't tell at all. So serene and quiet. I loved the fact that there is no internet access, put your phone away and reconnect with your... More

My husband and I stayed here the end of April. The cabin was beautiful. Spotlessly clean and equipped with a full kitchen. The bed was very comfortable a.the whirlpool was much larger then we expected. Plenty of room for two people. We couldn't have asked for more. We will definitely be back.

The best thing I can say about Kishauwau is that WE'LL BE BACK! My husband and I visited here to celebrate our 1st anniversary - it was exactly the escape from busy life that we needed. The grounds are pristine, the cabins are cleaner than any hotel room I've ever stayed in, and the atmosphere of the entire place is... More

Perfect Access to Outdoors with clean working amenities. Wonderful owners. Although we stayed in a no-dog cabin, we plan to bring our dog next time. Privacy is amazing. Best cabin I've stayed in - so much better than any hotel. Thank you!

I stayed in the Hunter Cabin which has a great view from the back patio (straight downhill through the forest to a river) and is tucked away on the edge of the property. The location is great for those planning to hike at Starved Rock or Matthiessen State Park. Staying here was a nice little escape from the city, and... More
