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

We were looking for a place to relax and unwind in a low stress environment. Kishauwau was the perfect place. We loved the spacing between the cabins, the quiet at night, and watching the kids play outside! Without gadgets! Nearby state parks were a great scenic opportunity for the kids. They slept hard at night....right through the rain. Great getaway... More

We are so glad you enjoyed your stay with us. I do admit that I love to see kids get away from their techy gadgets while here and enjoy the great outdoors like the good old days.

Enjoyed staying close to Starved Rock State Park at Kishauwau Country Cabins with the family including our dog during Spring break. Clean and friendly atmosphere, and having a kitchen was key to enjoying home cooked meals after our hiking exertions. Our college aged sons appreciated having access to wifi and the large selection of movies available in main office building.... More

Stayed at the Bridge Cabin and it is our favorite. Small but cozy. We took advantage of their February special and had dinner at Canal Port which was great. We had to check in late on Friday but they were very accommodating with pre-check in. Only issue we had was we had asked for wood to be waiting for us... More

We are very glad you made a return trip to Kishauwau. I am very sorry to hear of the wood delivery, or lack there of. I definitely wouldn't say that is typical here but every once in a while a wood delivery is forgotten if we didn't write it down. I feel really bad because we do not like any... More

What an awesome place. My wife, our dog, and I had an awesome weekend getaway. Had a very nice studio cabin with a large Jacuzzi tub. The property is maintained very well and is very quiet and peaceful. They keep the office unlocked so you can go in anytime and borrow movies and buy soda/ice cream/frozen pizza. Its a short...

Jacks suite was amazing the staff was friendly and welcomed you with open arms. We plan on staying next month one of our favorite get aways by far. The beauty starts the moment you turn in and just increases when you open the door to the cabin. We can't wait to come back!!
