The cabin was the perfect place for our family reunion. While it was located in a remote area around 20 acres of wood, we were close to the city as well as the local golf course. We had such a great time, we hope to return in future years.

Spacious Cozy Cabin
We love staying in this cabin! It was very spacious and everyone had their own room. It heated up quickly and the surroundings were beautiful. It was secluded and quiet so we could enjoy nature and also drive a bit to get into town so we could get what we needed. We would definitely rent here again.

Hidden gem in the woods
I spent my birthday week at this cozy abode and would recommend it to all. The cabin has some pretty snazzy new furniture so that it has a modern feel to it. The kitchen is stocked with tools, but there is a grill and a campfire if cooking indoors doesn't appeal to you while you are out camping. The cabin is also quite spacious, offering several bedrooms, but we only needed the one. The netted porch is fantastic and was a great place to enjoy each sunrise and sunset from. If you are staying during warmer months, don't be shy with bug spray. We brought our own, but there were many cans on premises when we visited (deet and deet-less). I didn't have many questions for Rebecca, but her responses were very fast! What I was looking for was a quiet and comfortable stay away from the city and I found it here. Not far from Chicago and granting entry to a beloved state near great hikes, the lake, and breweries :D

My stay at the cabin was awesome! There is a great view out every window and an open living space for hanging out. Secluded in the woods and off a river you can’t ask for much more when looking for a cabin stay.
