Beautiful and tranquil

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay. It was nice to have a working kitchen so we didn't have to eat out each meal. We were able to relax and have our own space versus being in a hotel when you're on top of each other. It worked out perfectly as they had a place for my father to sleep on the first floor as stairs are a challenge for him. The property is beautiful. We loved walking around the grounds and checking things out. The kitchen is nicely stocked with cooking utensils and pans that were needed and the dishwasher was a bonus! We also liked having two full baths since there were six of us. We would definitely recommend this property!

Great weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this cabin for a weekend getaway with a couple friends. We had a relaxing time cooking, playing games, and just chatting. The owners are great at responding back if there are any questions or concerns. Some small suggestions to future renters - take your own non-stick pans if needed - the ones provided are heavily scratched, and take flashlights if you have a dog - the exterior grounds are not lit. All in all, we enjoyed our stay and will consider it again in the future!

Beautiful cabin. Great location for us.

  • 5 of 5

Six of us spent Easter weekend here. Decorated beautifully. Cozy. Clean. Great size. Beds are a little uncomfortable, but wouldn't stop us from coming back. We enjoyed fires in the fireplace inside and a fire outside in the fire pit. Owners are great! Easy to get a hold of. Highly recommend!!

This cabin was everything we expected and more!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was fantastic! The cabin is beautiful inside and out and was perfect for a weekend away. Not only is the cabin great but the small town of Sheridan is nice too. The people in town are welcoming, their beer is cold, and the little diner up town (Calico Cafe) is an amazing breakfast spot. If you're looking for a great place to relax then you've found the right place to stay!

Beautiful, relaxing get away for both us and the kids

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay here in early March while our kids were off school for a few days! The cabin is beautiful inside and out, with comfortable beds, lovely decor, and well-equipped for children (pack n play, large 2nd bedroom, video games, and movies). If you have a toddler who loves to climb, supervision is definitely needed on the wooden stairs. Our 7, 5 and 3 year olds were fine, but would have been a challenge with a one or two year old. The kids loved the fire pit out back, along with exploring the woods and the banks of the Fox River. It was an easy drive to Starved Rock, where the waterfalls were flowing this week after the rain. We would highly recommend this property to anyone wishing to escape! We had a fabulous time.
