Overall a very nice place to stay. Needs a few more things in the kitchen and a better tv. The female owner was very nice and easy to work with.
Very nice accommodations- Better than expected !!!! Great communication from owners-Thanks guys. We'll be back
Very nice, well kept and clean condo. Really close to Starved Rock, will definitely stay here again.
We had a really good time it's a very comfortable place and my elderly father got to relax in front of the fireplace . The walk-in shower was very convenient for him. We played lots of settlers of Catan which we brought . The kids enjoyed the water park on Sunday as Thursdays and Sundays are the only days that you can enjoy the waterpark. Not owners fault just how it is. We had fun playing laser tag and my little girl (2 1/2)enjoyed the jump houses and the big slide @ Jack's Place. The only things I felt were missing, which it all worked out, just would've been more convenient, is another cookie sheet & a large frying pan. We brought good knives, but a couple good knives would be a good addition. Just could've used as your cooking for 2 families. Coffee pot worked great! They had coffee & filters available but We had brought our own coffee. Plenty of towels. They also had dish soap and a few dishwasher pods available, plenty of toilet paper. Only needed a couple extra rolls. Roll of paper towels were available. I'd just bring an extra. I like to wash a lot so we went out to get laundry soap. But all in all we had a great weekend! We'd definitely do it again:)
We had a great time here! Spacious, cozy, clean and really close to Starved Rock. The hosts are very friendly, patient and easy to communicate. Looking forward to the next time!
We had a fantastic time at this cozy cabin. It was very spacious and accomodated our large family, including grandparents. The bedrooms are huge and there are plenty of beds for everyone, which we didn't expect. (We usually have atleast 2 kids sleep on the floor on family trips.) We were able to hike at Starved Rock most of the mornings and would return to the cabin to enjoy hot cocoa by the fireplace which was always on at the flip of a switch =). We also enjoyed eating at Jack's Place in the Enchanted Forest/Arcade area. There are a lot of local places to eat in the area which are great too. We are planning to come to this cabin again in the summer when the kids have a break again.
