After returning from my sixth stay at the KVR, I can only say that the hospitality, natural beauty of the setting, guest care, and attention to detail continues at a stellar level. The gentle peacefulness of the ranch is unparalleled. After three years of visits, it continues to be a highlight in every season of the year.

We just returned from two nights at the Kickapoo Valley Guest Cabins, completely refreshed and full of wonderful memories. Our check-in experience was quick and easy and Cowboy Joe was very pleasant and welcoming. Our cabin was perfect and we couldn't think of one thing missing or extraneous. From enough hooks in the bathroom to hang towels (usually an oversight in lodgings) to the wonderful coffee beans to the bedding, excellent WiFi and more than adequate kitchen facilities and the electric grill (we brought a cooler and ice), we were truly delighted by the care and attention the owners have lavished on this beautiful place. Immaculately clean. And of course, the porch setting is fabulous, made even more so by the sight and sound of horses clopping by and the beauty and serenity of the Kickapoo Valley. Truly a wonderful retreat. We came prepared to be pleasantly surprised and were astonished.

The cookies were a nice touch but didn’t make up for the abuse. We just spent four nights in one of the cabins at the Kickapoo Valley Ranch and were glad when it was over. We were treated very rudely by one of the owners as soon as we checked in. It really did ruin our stay and color our opinion about the entire area. We pulled up to the main building to check in, but instead of being greeted, we were scolded because we didn’t park in the right place. We were screamed at. It is normal to pull up to the check-in area and then park elsewhere when that task is finished, but not here. We left our car running right outside and could have moved it anytime, had we been asked. Instead, “Cowboy” Joe was incredibly disrespectful, nasty and rude, challenging us about our disabilities and questioning whether we had a handicapped sticker. The property is on/adjacent to almost 9000 acres, as advertised, and there were no other cars on it. Not really a parking or traffic problem between there and Chicago, yet the owner pitched a giant hissy-fit. We finally asked him if he wanted us to leave, and we would have if we thought he would have refunded our money. He said he was going to have to go through our car to make sure there weren’t any cats in there. Cats and other animals will crawl into a warm engine compartment during the winter but are not likely to do so on a hot summer day, in a car that’s running, in five minute’s time. We met some locals and they said they never recommend staying at this place because the owner had treated their friends the same way. We were assured that the Internet worked. It did not. We had no phone service, and the internet was spotty with frequent disconnections. The TV service was the same, as it is dependent on Wifi. We asked if there was an ice machine, and were told, snottily, that each refrigerator had an ice cube tray. We chose to stay in the middle of nowhere with a kitchen so we could cook, rest, and repair after a long road trip. Refrigerators are small, freezers tiny – not even apartment-sized – so people use coolers. An ice machine would have been nice. It was very difficult to cook in the kitchen. A two-burner cooktop, little counterspace, tiny sink and tiny refrigerator. And lots of miles to the nearest restaurants. The “cowboy” owners say they were inspired by Montana. Well, we’re from Montana and no one there acts so disrespectfully over something so insignificant. During our trip we stayed in many cabins, condos, and hotels in many states, and never had a bad experience. The cabin was very clean, and the views were great. The abuse, not so much.

Response from Joseph R, Owner at Kickapoo Valley Ranch Guest Cabins
Responded 5 weeks ago
Lots to unpack here... I will address this guests topics and talk to all of you all too. I will start off by saying that the minute this couple arrived at the property, I knew there was going to be trouble. We have a giant parking area out front with a short, well signed walkway up to the check-in office. From that parking, there is a delivery/handicap/employee driveway that takes you near the check-in office. But it is narrow, and one could easily back into the shed or a fence. PLUS it is an area with a single parking space reserved for handicapped guests. They arrived and drove in a big circle out front, not looking at any signs and drove where they shouldn't have. At an elevated speed. I approached them and asked it I could help them/ why they were where they were. Brief. Not snotty. That's just mean. Then when she immediately said that if I didn't want them to check in they could leave. Literally holding me hostage that if I didn't let them leave their car where it was they were threatening to not stay. I made many, many efforts to cool THEM down and start over. I even asked if they were ok and what else I could do to start over. She said they were fine and looking forward to their stay. Actually now being kind of pleasant and I felt re-assured that all was well with the world. I am so incredibly sad that you felt that as we try to make your stay as safe and easy as possible that you felt your experience was less than that. We have a couple clear & concise signs out front to make it easy for our guests to find where to safely park & where not to. There's a "no parking area" for the safety of our guests & a few, well-cared for & beloved farm pets. That area is difficult to navigate, therefore a very wide & spacious, well signed area for you to park to check-in. And, as you know, you parked in the HANDICAPPED PARKING SPACE. But you seem to feel that having left your car running that it was ok & that I should have asked you to move it. No. Yet you never asked if it was ok to park there even though I asked if you had a handicap sticker. You don't drive or park where you aren't supposed to. And where there are simple to read signs that tell you that. The tens of thousands of guests that have stayed before you have had no problem with the conveniences we offered. We're sorry it was too much for you after your travels. Was I quick to check who you were & why you pulled where you did? You bet. Was I snotty. No . And you know it. Our website also offers much support on parking, ice machines, WiFi & streaming options.Everything that you could ever expect or need to not only make your getaway easy, but also for you to decide if we are even the right place for you. Again, we're sorry that you omitted checking all that out before you arrived. Did you ask me if we had a big ice machine? You did. And I said that there were trays with fresh ice in each cabin. What else were you looking for except a brief answer to a brief question. And your adjectives used to describe our kitchen facilities are silly. Again, our website not only describes the facilities in detail, there are many photos there to show you exactly what the facilities are. Tens of thousands of people have found them to be awesome. If you wanted a full kitchen, we have a cabin with one. But kitchen details were never a part of our preliminary conversations. AND two kitchens have remodeled spaces with even more additional space than most all folks could ever need. Now folks, we are surrounded by almost 13,000 acres of forest preserve THAT WE PROMOTE. It is why folks come here. We don't have an Appleby's next door or three bars up the road. For this guest to try and make you think that it is a negative is ridiculous. Groceries: 8 miles, 12 miles, 16 miles, and three that are 18 miles. PLENTY. Restaurants: 6 miles, 12 miles, 16 miles, and over 15 options just 18 miles away. PLUS, during peak season, on weekends, (WHEN THIS GUEST WAS HERE!) there is a restaurant LESS THAN ONE MILE from your cabin door. Now, back to the WiFi & TVs. When in your many days here did you ask us to help you with connectivity? That's right folks. Never. Here's what happens... many folks out there have their adult kids set up their cell phones, TVs, etc... & have no clue how to use WiFi calling or how to switch from DVD to streaming. We are here to help & there have been a few folks that we have. Especially since the cellular service in some rural parts of the country can be spotty (BTW - that is 100% not our fault.) So, we invested thousands & thousands of dollars in a super great WiFi system and provide Smart TVs in all the cabins. So many folks have no troubles. And when folks do, they contact us. And this guest actually has a super-WiFi booster in their cabin. If they couldn't connect it had/has nothing to do with us. NOTHING. We're not off-site owners. We live right here & are available 24 hours a day, seven days, a week, 365 days a year. But you never asked for assistance. You just put that in your file of things to beat us up about. Someone that maybe has had some challenges in their life, maybe someone abused or bullied, that now uses their computer to take it out on others. We feel bad for you. We hope you can find some peace out there in your world and move past all this yuckiness and sadness. Being the highest rated lodging facility here on TripAdvisor in the entire Midwest to all of you has to have some weight - have some logic. If we were so terrible at so many things would that not have shown up long before now??? Finally, you've said that you "met some locals and they said they never recommend staying at this place because the owner had treated their friends the same way." Does ever person in a region love every single person. I'd be shocked if you said yes. There are locals that don't like that we bring people into the area from the "outside world." And we are socially conscious, politically active, don't allow pets or horses or who knows what all else, some folks don't like us. Do we promote a quiet & peaceful getaway? YUP! No ATVs, no fireworks, no drones, no hootenannies or hoedowns. Again, I promise you that therefore are a bunch of folks that don't like us. I'm sorry that we did not meet your expectations. I would say if you slowed down, read a sign or two or even took a few minutes to look over our incredibly helpful & extensively detailed website, YOU could have avoided any challenges that you incurred. This is our home. This is our livelihood & we have worked our butts off for 19 years to offer the best accommodations in the region to one & all. It is so very, very sad, that after all we do, with how you chose to start, this went so far south. Next time: read the sign. Read the FAQs. They are there to help.

We had a fantastic anniversay stay at the ranch. Customer service was top notch. The cabins are situated where nature is at its best. So peaceful and quiet. The fresh air smells wonderful. It was fun to be met by the horses outside our cabin in the morning. The cookies in our room were an extra special treat. We had a specialty cake made for our anniversary which tasted like heaven.

Love the experience of being out in the country with the animals and beautiful views from the cabins. We had fun shopping and visiting the country stores. Our favorite time of year to go to Kickapo Valley Ranch is in the fall to see the gorgeous leaves and stop at the apple orchards nearby. The cabins are always really clean and so cozy. We enjoy sitting on the deck and listen to the birds sing.

I don't think I have ever stayed at a cabin that was so clean and so impeccably thoughtful. Individual servings of coffee or toiletries or napkins to accommodate the pandemic, perfectly clean floors so I always felt comfortable being barefoot, quality blankets and furniture that felt like they wrapped you in a warm embrace. I came here for a solo getaway and my only complaint was that I couldn't stay longer. It is exactly as described but better. I think it's perfect for a solo getaway, couples getaway, or with a small group of friends. It isn't the place to party or for a family reunion. It is the place to have a sanctuary to yourself. Can't wait to come back.

We have been going to KVR now for three years. It is the place for our wedding anniversary trip every year. The service is such that you feel that you are part of a family. The cabins are well kept and they will work to ensure anything they can address is. We enjoy the large cabin with lots of space and EXCELLENT views. If you are looking for a place to get away from people, noise, clutter and just enjoy nature and a quiet atmosphere..... the is the place!!!

YES, book it! I can not say emphatically enough how much I loved this place. Beautiful cabins that are impeccably clean. The location is gorgeous and I say that even having stayed in the winter. I traveled for work but felt like I was on the most restful vacation. The service is amazing. Joe went out of his way to accommodate us. And yes...the cookies...deliciously addicting. I can't wait to go back. Thank you for a wonderful experience.
