    Hi, Suzanne. What would you like to know about this accommodation? We will be there June 16-23. We have no small children. My two sons and daughter-in-law from Chicago will hopefully be able to join us for a few days. We do need a kitchen to cook our meals in. I have some concerns about being disappointed in our stay with all the negative reviews I am reading about?

    The two bedroom unit we were in had the smallest kitchen possible. The two of us could stand in it though.

    What is the age range for riding horses? What is the fee for the water park? Are there still free pools? Thank you.

    We found this place through a time share agreement and do not know if there are other ways to access the pool, water park, or horse-back riding. You might call their number: 815-496-2369.

    Have a quick question; we are thinking about spending Thanksgiving week here booking through our timeshare company. There is a 2 BR (6/4) available. Can anyone tell me the layout we will have (there are two on the website)? Also wondering how far away the indoor pool is, and is the waterpark included or is that an additional charge? I have two teenage sons and afraid there will not be enough to do. Any recommendations from staff or past guests would be appreciated. Thanks in advance :)
