The Vermilion river is navigable but not terribly deep. Smaller fishing boats and pontoons are most popular. There is boat ramp access about 10 minutes away. Please call for more information on boating and area eating, drinking and entertainment ideas.
Drive past a bunch of beautiful cornfields to get to this Cottage in Rural Illinois. The cottage has a nice 3/4 wrap around porch to sit outside and look out at either the fields in the front or the Vermilion River out back. There is a nice patio area to sit out by the fire pit and Ryan provided as much wood as you could want. The house is nice and clean with a loft area upstairs and a balcony off the bedroom upstairs as well. Lots of room to roam. Ryan had bottled water in the refrigerator so that was nice and definitely came in handy. Bath towels, kitchen towels and oven mitts are available. There is no dishwasher - which we did not mind at all since it was just the four of us. The only thing missing was a box of Kleenex. The fireplace inside is awesome and really creates a cozy warm feeling - we used the fireplace a lot. This was a great Cottage to get away for the weekend and relax in a quiet area. I would recommend this house and would stay there again. Thank you Ryan and Family for providing a nice place to rent for the weekend!
I rented for three weeks Sept. 25 through Oct. 16 while I was working an outage at Braidwood. It helped to make having to be out of town to work, relaxing. Owners were very helpful and responsive to any questions that I had. Only wish I was there for vacation instead of work, but would definating do this again. Martha
Cute cottage on the lake. Everything we needed for the week end was there. A quite get away location, yet close to starving rock and other actives.
Tho we didn't use them, games were provided as well as DVD's.
My friend and I stayed at this wonderful riverside cabin in July. Great clean and peaceful space outdoors and in. It is out past many cornfields with just a small road with few other houses and not really access to explore the river. Good working kitchen essentials, extra bottles of water was nice (thank you!). Good gas grill. Comfortable pillows, beds and couches. Very nice deck overlooking the river where we read books and chatted for hours. Used the screened in porch with fire pit at night to stay away from mosquitos. We were there for hot July days but just used the ceiling fan and opened windows for nice breeze versus trying the AC. We did not use the basement area (with doors to outdoors) with TV, couches, pool table. Stocked up with family board games. Seems a little musty or damp there but dehumidifier running.
We drove to Starved Rock for hiking which was very cool although crowded in mid summer as expected. A little trouble with automatic map directions for one of us coming from the south bringing you to the west side of river with cabin on the east, but property owners directions were great. Recommend for getaway for family and/or friends. Hope to return with kids and other friends in future
Great spot to get away. Ryan, the owner, is a great guy to deal with. Answers questions in a fast timely manner, very open to making your trip great.
The cottage was awesome! We had a wonderful time staying there. Would love to come back in the future.
