A 3 tier drop down deck that surrounds the entire cabin offering a beautiful panoramic view from sunrise to sunset w/ease of access to the waters edge for great fishing anytime of day. An anchored dock to fish from and an additional floating dock located in the middle of the pond. Great for kayaks and a paddle boat for those of you that choose to work out those legs. All this beauty rests in the middle of over 4000 acres of woods, corn and soybean fields. Beautiful hiking trail through the woods behind the lodge. The morrell mushrooms are everywhere during the end of April into the first part of May. All of our creeks are loaded with geodes of every shape and size for those, that enjoy outdoor activities .

For those hunting enthusiasts, we also have hunting packages during the deer seasons from Oct. 1 - Dec. 20. These prices will differ depending on time of yr. So between the swimming, fishing, hiking, geode hunting, mushroom hunting, paddle boat, kayaks, Mt. biking, scenic drives, bird watching, wildlife viewing, hot tub, campfires, horse shoes, and still being with in 15 minutes of town, I'm sure you will have no problem enjoying yourself to the fullest and relaxing at our beautiful Bradshaw Lodge LLC.

I enjoy working on the farm and am a strong supporter of most things Agriculturally related. My family lives here in the immediate area and I am very active in the local community. I cherish the many memories and family traditions I have made here at the lodge as my home, now I have a chance to share it with you and hear of your families wonderful traditions .

Serene family getaway spot

  • 5 of 5

We spent three glorious days here with the entire extended family, 10 adults and 12 children. The accommodations were even better than the pictures can show, because of the whole layout of the house. There is plenty of room, but the rooms are also situated to provide ample opportunity for a variety of activities as well as places for little ones to nap. The kitchen and dining area was plenty big for all of us to eat together. We also enjoyed the outdoor dining area overlooking the tiny lake. And the children could not get enough of the lake! There is enough shallow and sandy space for the non-swimmers and a floating dock just a short distance away for the stronger swimmers and adults, as well as kayaks and a rowboat. The adults enjoyed the beautiful peacefulness of this location, with deer and raccoons walking by in the evening and stars shining brightly overhead after dark, and no traffic noise at all.

We also appreciated the extras this location provides. There is a commercial dishwasher, so even dishes for 22 can be washed up and put away in a short time. There are washers and dryers on every level of the home, so keeping up with the laundry for 12 active children was a breeze. There is a walk-in cooler, as well as a couple of refrigerators, so there is plenty of space for all the food you need for a large group. There are plenty of bathrooms for the number of bedrooms, and there is even a bathroom with a shower right inside the back door, for showering off after swimming. There is a huge gathering area that was enough for all of us to be together to socialize.

This location is a little off the beaten path, but it is definitely worth the drive. We hope to return on an annual basis!

Eric Bradshaw is running the worst cabin rental I've ever been to

  • 1 of 5

2 weeks ago I rented this cabin and unfortunately a friend passed away there in a freak accident. Nobody was ever told us where the life saving jackets where HIDDEN. Nobody ever told me I had to be 25 (22) to rent the place and my ID was never checked when I got there and I was never asked if I was 25. After the incident he made that a huge issue minutes after my friend was taken away in an ambulance. He had no sympathy for my friends and I. He wasn't even the person in charge because he only showed up when the police were notified and I never spoke to him before that. I had been here 4 summers in a row. Next thing I know I get back home and I receive emails saying he's requesting over 3500$+ in damages. He went thru the entire cabin before I left but once I get home he claims there's that much money in damages seems like something's off. I strongly advise against giving your time and money to someone who has so much disregard for human life and the well being of others. So extremely disappointed

We'll go again!

  • 5 of 5

34 of us stayed there . . . ages 5 months - 73 . . . for a family reunion. It was fabulous!! So much to do and a comfortable, clean place to stay. The only thing we would change, if we could, would be the addition of a second oven and more hooks in the bathrooms (especially close to the shower).

Guys Weekend Getaway

  • 4 of 5

The place was great for a large group of people. We had the unfortunate timing of a rain filled weekend, yet we still found plenty to do, the place is laid out in a way that lets people break off into smaller groups within the house to do whatever. The only negative is the place needs a little maintenance. The windows were leaking water in during the rain and there was a drip from the ceiling in the "garage" rec room, and the bar area in the basement had water. Once the maintenance is done to rectify these minor inconveniences, then I would rate the place with 5 stars

Our beautiful 3 story lodge feels as though your millions of miles from anywhere but yet still within 15 minutes of plenty rural attractions. We also have numerous fairs in each county during certain times of the yr, A fantastic Restaurant right on the Illinois river called the Boatel within 25 minutes of the lodge, tons of rock bottom creeks for those of you that love to look for Geodes, and some of the best deer viewing in all of Illinois. We have over 50 deer per square mile, so seeing a ton of deer is never a problem. Our lodge offers all the privacy and seclusion a person could ask for along with being just minutes away from town.
