Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday cabin in Oglesby

3 Bedrooms, 4 Bathrooms, Sleeps 18

Book Your Stay to See the FALL Colors at Starved Rock NOW! I only have 1 weekend left in October.

This beautiful 3 bedroom 4 bath cabin at Grizzly Jack's Grand Bear Resort is available to rent out at a fraction of the cost. The 2800 sq foot unit is located on the west side of the property, in a quiet nook. Close enough to hike to Starved Rock's Canyons!

The cabin offers sleeping arrangements for 16 guests including:

1 King in the Master Suite with jetted whirlpool tub

2 Queens in the 2nd Master Suite with a jetted whirlpool tub

2 Sets of bunk beds in 3rd bedroom with twins on top and Queens on bottom

There are also 2 pull out couches (1 in the living room and 1 upstairs) Now with Serta pillow top mattress toppers! As good as a pullout bed is going to get!

We've got an air mattress in a closet as well if needed.

The living room boasts a grand fireplace, 55" flat screen tv, seating for 20, and a back door to walk straight out to a small patio.

Only one working fireplace - in living room. Fireplace is shut off from May - August.

Linens, towls, dishes, utensils, hand soap, dish soap, paper towls, salt and pepper are all provided for your convenience!

I provide one towel per guest per 3 night stay. I suggest bringing towels if you'd like more. Although there are dishes provided, I suggest bringing paper plates, plastic cups, and napkins. Nobody likes doing dishes on vacation!

Early check-in available, just ask!

This cabin does not include the daily pass to the waterpark or to the enchanted forest, however they do sell passes certain days of the week. Please call Grand Bear directly to ensure passes are available the day of your stay. Ask if they are selling to the public. This is a great way to save a lot of extra money!

25 year old age minimum to rent!

Your dates are secured when you pay. There is no maid service provided, or laundry available. Please inquire if this something your party requires.

Please inquire with any special circumstances. Thank you!

First time renter ~ amazing experience!

  • 5 of 5

I rented this cabin for a bachelorette party and was very impressed!! The space was huge & had plenty of room for the large group we had! Kayte was AWESOME to work with! I definitely recommend renting through her if you'd like an easy & care-free experience! We'll definitely be looking to rent again in the future!

Our family weekend was a great success!

  • 5 of 5

The Luxury Cabin was an amazing place for our family to celebrate three milestone anniversaries. It was clean and spacious, and had everything we needed to accommodate eighteen people. The decor and furnishings gave a feeling of warmth and comfort. The beds were comfortable, even the pull-outs. Grizzly Jack's Resort offered things for the children to do, and the adults enjoyed hiking at Starved Rock State Park. We would love to return someday!

A fantastic family reunion

  • 5 of 5

Fifteen members of our extended family enjoyed a four night stay at this beautiful and spacious cabin near Starved Rock State Park, with an additional 8 joining us for a Sunday cookout. Aged from 1 to 69 years, all enjoyed the comforts of this wonderful home! The kitchen is well equipped. The linens, bedding, and towels are almost like new and plentiful. The furniture is sturdy and the facilities are beautifully decorated and well maintained. Despite heat indices in the 100's, we enjoyed hiking the trails at Starved Rock, water balloon fights in the side yard, and the waterpark at Grand Bear Lodge (the latter being a bit pricey). The dining room table provided plenty of room for board games and the little ones had room to play in the great room. Questions prior to our arrival were answered promptly by Kayte - we could not have asked for a better hostess! This cabin is ideal for a large family group or a bunch of friends wanting to hang out together! We look forward to a return stay - we enjoyed this one so much!

Very well maintained villa in a great location

  • 5 of 5

We were a large group of 18 people looking for a quiet, fully furnished place for our annual yoga retreat. This home comfortably accommodated us. The home is a corner unit in a very cozy, quiet and private community called Grand Bear, barely 1 mile from the starved rock visitor center. The property itself is very well maintained, clean and furnished. There is a master suite at the upper level with a comfortable bed and a sofa bed. On the main level there is a living room with very nice decor and sofa bed, and a large dining table. Living room opens up into a spacious balcony. Kitchen has all basic utensils and appliances. The basement has 2 spacious bedrooms, one with 2 beds and the other with two large bunk beds. There are three bathrooms. Since I booked for the group I was a bit worried if the home would be able to comfortably accommodate and sleep everyone. But everyone in our group enjoyed the stay. There is plenty to explore in Starved Rock. I must also mention that Kayte is a very friendly landlady and she responded to all my queries promptly. She processed our security deposit very promptly after our checkout. Overall it was an excellent experience. I'd highly recommend this property to anyone who is looking for a great vacation.

We loved staying here and can't wait to stay again!

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we walked in we loved it. The place was huge and could accommodate our large family that came to celebrate our mother's 80th birthday. It was very clean, had everything we needed for preparing meals and for relaxing. We especially loved that it was an end unit. After hiking the trails at Starved Rock we would come back to the cabin, set up our chairs in the grassy area next to the cabin and enjoy more fresh air! The owner was great also. She was very attentive to our needs, even went out of her way to help us rent another unit close to hers for others in our party. Couldn't ask for a better celebration.

We hope to plan another trip soon!
