Woodhaven Cabin is a wonderful weekend getaway--we love it and enjoy sharing it with others who enjoy nature and feeling like you are in the north woods of Wisconsin yet only 65 miles from Chicago!
A tranquil respite, enjoy nature, rustic comfort & connectivity if desired. Outdoor activities abound.
We had two families (7 people) meet at this wonderful cabin. All the amenities we needed were there and the quietness of the area was just what we needed. The driveway is a little tricky to navigate but that is very clear up front that this is the case. The owners were a pleasure to work with during our stay. We will definitely stay here again the next time we are in the area.
The Woodhaven Cabin was much as the listing portrayed, secluded and quiet but close enough for us to find plenty to do. We wanted to return to the area where we lived before our full time move to Florida, be near our family, and have room for grandchildren to visit before they returned to college. The weather cooperated and we found what we had hoped for. The owners were very attentive and seemed to genuinely want us to feel at home. Our dog made sure the back deck was free of squirrels and we were able to relax. Sheridan is a nice little town and we often walked to local restaurants for breakfast or lunch. The nearby state parks provide easy getaways. We enjoyed fresh sweet corn, Rips Chicken and cold water flowing from the taps. The stuffed pizza from Francesca in Norway was as good as you will find in Chicago. When we get that urge again we would not hesitate to return or recommend this place to others.
We were very impressed with this cabin. Is even nicer than we expected. Plenty of extras: board games, movies, video games, and some awesome books. The property is also beautiful. There was a fawn right outside the back patio our first morning there. Also lots of hummingbirds, butterflies, and chipmunks. We walked down the path to fish and caught about a dozen catfish. There is a lot of fun stuff in the area, great parks and small shops. The owners were helpful and when we had a question they got right back to us. Planning to stay again sometime.
I spent the weekend here with several girlfriends and we had a great time! The house is bigger than we expected; there was plenty of space for us to spread out. Everything was clean and convenient. A great place for a getaway!
We stayed a week...just left today. It was such a beautiful and comfortable cabin. The little town is cute and the town people are so nice. There was so much to do within a hour or so drive. If I ever come back to Illinois I would love to stay in this cabin. It was the perfect home away from home. Thank you for sharing it!!
Relax in this log cabin getaway in woods overlooking Fox River or use it as your home away from home to explore Starved Rock State Park and other nearby forest preserves, canoe/kayak the Fox River, Ski Dive Chicago or visit area wineries and antique stores.
