My boyfriend and I just got back from staying from 7/26-28 and overall the cabin itself was nice. The view and privacy we had was excellent, the whirlpool tub is HUGE! Pictures cannot begin to show how massive it is, and the bed is actually quite comfortable. The air conditioning works wonderfully and the cabin feels very homey. The only... More

Thank you for taking the time to write your review. I must apologize for the cobwebs. I will say there are certain times of the year that they are worse than others. All and all we see a lot of them, just due to our location. There are woods behind almost every cabin here and we don't always get the... More

My family stayed in a cabin for a week and enjoyed the trip very much. We had everything we needed. There is a lot of space on the grounds so you don't really see or hear others too much. We look forward to returning. We enjoyed the swings and pond by the office. Besides the state parks, I recommend folks... More

We drive through a major storm to get to this destination and it was worth it! Everything was as promised and better. Property is very scenic, quiet, and provides just enough privacy. Our dog-friendly cabin was well-stocked, very clean and fulfilled all needs. BTW, the whirlpool is huge! Dusk brought out a symphony of tree frogs and a firefly light... More

My wife, I and our dog Frodo really enjoyed our visit and stay in the Mother-In-Law Cabin. It was clean, comfortable, and , on a chilly Saturday, very cozy. We have already mintioned our stay as a suggestion for a trip to some of our friend.

The cabin was so close to Starved Rock, it was the perfect day trip to get out in nature. For the time not on the trail, our cabin had everything we needed, including a fireplace and charcoal grill. We had a wonderful weekend getaway, and the owners were most accommodating. Thanks Kishauwau for making a wonderful weekend!

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Kishauwau Country Cabins is a family run cabin rental property on 55 wooded acres in north central Illinois. Very near Starved Rock State Park, we are one of Northern Illinois' premier cabin rental destinations. Just a 1 1/2 hour drive from most southern suburbs of Chicago or 2 hours from downtown Chicago Illinois, there are a multitude of things to do in this area. You will love being only a 10 minute drive from Starved Rock State Park where there is plenty of hiking and activities for your daily adventure and Utica, Illinois where there are local shops, dining, wineries and antiquing. Or, if you choose, you can stay tucked away on our 55 acres of beautiful, quiet, wooded property at your country cabin retreat. Whether it's romance you seek or getting the kids away from their cell phones and video games, Kishauwau has just what you need. Kishauwau Country Cabins offers rental luxury cabins for weekend, weeknight, and all-week getaways. Our beautifully constructed cabins offer a blend of country charm but with modern conveniences. You and your guests will enjoy a fully equipped kitchen, a covered porch, personal outdoor fire pit, an indoor woodstove or gas fireplace and so much more. The only items you'll need to bring will be food, beverages, and condiments. ... more   less
