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. Kishauwau is a part of many family memories and would be honored if you made yours a tradition with us as well. Terisa... More

Thank you so much for taking the time to tell others about your experiences here at Kishauwau Country Cabins. I definitely agree, my in-laws left behind one heck of a legacy here. The most descriptive term we here people use to describe our property is "Heaven on earth" and we very humbly accept that. Until next time. Terisa King and... More

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!!

Congratulations!! Really glad you enjoyed your stay. Sorry about the water, yes it is a well and not much we can do about that. It isn't unsafe, I use it for my cooking and all but we always suggest people bring drinking water with them because guests do not prefer the flavor of it. We are thrilled you would consider...

Thank you for the kind words. We enjoy what we do here and this is a great area. This is the time of year for indoor fires, we don't allow them in the summer months, just for future renters reading this. We work to keep this a very peace and quiet getaway.

We are very glad you enjoyed your trip along with your pup. It is a nice area to take the dog and I am always happy to inform you of places that might accept the dog if you ask, like restaurants, there are a couple of them. We hope to see you again sometime.
