We were one of 3 couples who spent one Sat in May at Tara Point. We spent the day in Grafton wineries and the evening in the house. The house is well-equipped and was perfect for relaxing with friends. The breakfast in the a.m. was included, and enjoyable. A bit pricey, but where else can you find such a large... More

My husband and I love Grafton. We decided to stay here for our anniversary. It has a wonderful view! The cabins are nice too. Wonderful view from the private deck and very nice inside. They are duplex cabins and all are right next to each other. The kitchen was handy with a nice basket left in the fridge, and the... More

We stayed at one of the Dogwood cottages. It was nice and quiet for a couples getaway. The cottage was nice and spacious with a king bed and two person whirlpool tub. There was a "breakfast basket" in the cottage for the next morning filled with juice, fruit, muffins and bagels. The view was beautiful from our cottage and can't... More

We stayed in the cabins so I'm not sure what the Inn had to offer but we loved the cabin! It was our 10 year anniversary and we wanted something quiet/romantic which is exactly what we got. The cabin was very nice, spacious, clean with everything we could have wanted (fridge, micro, jetted tub, fireplace, comfy king size bed). The... More

The cottages at Tara pointe are the most relaxing and comfortable place we have stayed in the Midwest. You are taken by the view when you are trying to get luggage out of the car. The most comfortable King bed ever. Sleep like you have never slept before after a few minutes in the oversized jacuzzi tub. The view from... More

Recd a gift certificate for a night stay in one of the cottages. Best short vacation time ever. After enjoying the town/winery of Grafton, this is a wonderful place to sit on the front porch and just watch the time go by. Seeing the sunset over the river from on top of a mountain is breath taking. If you ever... More

We love the views and the stay at Tara Point Inn Cabins! We have stayed at the Redbud and the Dogwood cabins. Loved both. The only thing we would like is a better Wi-Fi connection. Had fun watching the old DVDs .

The view of the confluence of the Mississippi and Illinois rivers was fantastic. The Inn is located on a large hill with a commanding view of the rivers and the local area. The cottages are nicely appointed, with everything good quality (with the exception of the sofas which sagged significantly). One morning's breakfast is provided, and it is tasty and... More

My wife and I recently stayed in one of the "cabins" here for a couple of nights. It was the most spacious cabin we have ever stayed in and had all of the necessities and some luxuries. Grafton is a very interesting town with lots of diverse things to do and Tara Point is a wonderful place to stay to... More

Can't beat this view on the Illinois river. The stay was wonderful, I had no problems whatsoever. I have to say that the woman working in the office here seemed unfriendly. She was not welcoming. Other than that, the cabins are very comfortable.
