Growing up in Chicago area, Starved rock area was a place we went to on weekends for a get away. We have been in love with the area ever since.
Mike Gustafson purchased this villa in 2014
We felt it was a great opportunity to have a place located near Starved Rock for vacations and rent it out other times throughout the year so more people may experience this magnificent area.
My group of five 'friends of a certain age' rented Mike's beautiful villa while we attended the Vintage Illinois Wine Festival at Mattheissen State Park last weekend. It was the perfect location. It truly is tucked away on the resort grounds and we reveled in the whole 'glamping' experience. The villa is huge and beautifully furnished in a lodge style. It absolutely sleeps ten without any squeezing. It is sparkling clean and comes with everything you need for a great stay. In the evenings, we enjoyed watching a couple of movies from his great selection in front of the crackling fireplace with cool autumn breezes and animal sounds coming through the open windows. The beds are super comfy and bath linens are plentiful. Mike was instantly responsive to any questions I had and emailed me with perfectly timed check-in/arrival information. He shared his cell phone number for any needs we might have while we were there and was quick to return my deposit. Travelers couldn't ask for better accommodations or a better landlord. Thanks for helping our great weekend be perfect, Mike!
Very clean unit. Great location. Enjoyed our stay. Kids are asking when we can go back! Would definitely stay again!
Great property in a beautiful location at Grand bear. Plenty of amenities and easy to work with owner who goes out of their way. Great experience!
We all liked the house. It was in a perfect spot where we only had to drive a few miles to go to starved rock, hiking and biking. My grandkids liked grizzly lodge. Wish we could have gotten even a small discount to use their wave pool because we stayed at mike's house. One thing missing, a toaster. Mentioned it because luckily we had a quesadilla maker we used for waffles and toast. Mike was easy to get ahold of when I needed him. Bottom line, we enjoyed our stay.
We loved our villa it was clean and very private. Beautiful location!
First of all, Mike Gustafson was great to work with. He answered any questions promptly and made sure we had all the information we needed to find the villa. He was very prompt at getting our deposit back to us . I will definitely get in touch with him again when needing a place. THE VILLA WAS AWESOME! My husband and I met our grown children and their significant others for a total of 8 adults and were not crowded at all. The villa was immaculate when we arrived and everything we needed was there including games and movies.The beds were very comfortable and there was even a washer and dryer. The area was quiet and our villa was next to the forrest which made for peaceful mornings. Stores were close for emergency food runs and access to Starved Rock was just across the street . Grizzly Jacks was in walking distance if we would have been interested in an inside water park. Putt Putt golf course was also in walking distance and was very affordable and fun. Thanks MIke for help in making our stay an enjoyable one. Stayed June 17-19th 2016
