Overview

About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, Sleeps 8

This property is located on the tranquil Rock River in Oregon, Illinois and is perfect for a couple or family to get away. Enjoy fishing from the large deck or while out on the water with your boat. There is a boat ramp available only one mile away in town and at Castle Rock. One hundred feet of river frontage at the house for convenient docking and ease of use. The barbecue will come in handy when you want to keep an eye on your fishing pole while preparing a delicious meal.

There are two bedrooms with two beds each. The master bedroom has two new queen beds. They are supremely comfortable so that you will sleep like a baby! The second bedroom has two twin beds and there's a hide-a-bed in the living room for larger get-togethers. The kitchen is fully stocked with a large table for your group to gather at. The living room has two full couches and entertainment center. Views of the river are also enjoyed from the sunroom and kitchen. Our friendly neighbors might give you a wave.

Explore nature on any of the hiking trails of the surrounding three state parks. You'll find many activities to interest you such as horseback riding, dinner cruises, golf, and swimming at nearby lakes! Ask us where to find the bald eagle's nest! Bring your canoe, kayak, or other water sport toys.

Stay at the Rock River Hideaway to relax and unwind!

3rd time's just as nice!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for letting us stay at your home again! This was our third time staying here, and we enjoyed it just as much as the previous times. The upgrades were very nice -- we spent a lot of time in the newly renovated sun room. Everything was clean and accommodating. No complaints!

The only thing we were bummed about? The stairs from the dock down to the river are no longer there. It would be nice if there was an easier, safer way down and if there were a paved area to sit below the deck. Still, we love hanging out out there!

We're looking forward to our next visit. We always have a great time here, even though we've had ZERO luck with the fish :).

Owner's Response: Thank you Amy. We always love you visiting us. We are still in remodeling stages. The winter wasn't too nice to us. The ice jams ripped our stairs out completely. We are planning on replacing in a different location. We hope to see you soon.

Very comfortable in a relaxing setting. Enjoyed morning coffee over looking the river.

  • 4 of 5

House is clean and comfortable. Worked well for 5 adults and 3 children. Had all we needed for a long weekend while visiting family. Had an issue with getting into the house the last night (deadbolt wouldn't unlock). Owners were very responsive and the issue was resolved quickly. We would stay again.

Great river getaway

  • 5 of 5

Everything was great. The location on the river is fantastic. Across the river is a huge forest preserve so it feels very removed. Down the street from a number of great outdoor areas and state parks. Even in the cooler early spring weather we enjoyed it. The house itself was clean and well maintained. Went to the John Deere historic site in Grand Detour which was one of the cooler attractions we've been to in a while. It was very well done. Great long weekend.
