We are from Galesburg Illinois which is about a 6 hr drive. The Weathervane Inn and one of their local restaurants the "Old Channei Inn" make for our perfect escape. I think we have been there 2 times in 4 years and want to get up there again. We go in the winter when the lake is frozen outside our deck. Looks like it would be a fun/cute area in the summer with all activities. Mason. This stupid trip advisor system won't let me exit w/o coming up with a incorrect date of stay.
