We rented a dog-friendly, whirlpool cabin for the weekend to kick off springbreak stay-cation, and loved it. Comfortable cabin, bed, kitchen and personal fire pit. There was a nice trail to walk at Kishauwau, but also convenient to drive to Starved Rock State Park for hiking there! The grounds and cabins were beautifully kept up and peaceful and we would...

PROPERTY’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 26 July 2016 via mobile

We drive through a major storm to get to this destination and it was worth it! Everything was as promised and better. Property is very scenic, quiet, and provides just enough privacy. Our dog-friendly cabin was well-stocked, very clean and fulfilled all needs. BTW, the whirlpool is huge! Dusk brought out a symphony of tree frogs and a firefly light...

Place was wonderful. Stayed there for the weekend and would do it again in a heartbeat. Close to all hiking trails at each State park but you have the feel of being in the middle of nowhere. Highly recommend for a weekend away.

My wife and I love to hike so we found these cabins within 15 minutes of Matthiessen and Starved Rock State Parks. As a bonus they offer two cabins that are pet friendly. We came, we stayed, we will return. It was cozy, well kept, fully functional, and you would not have known pets had stayed here prior to us....

Brian, We are beyond excited about the impression we made on you and your wife. Just to correct though, there are actually 3 dog friendly cabins here. It just looks like 2 on our booking engine because 2 of them are in the same category with the large double sized whirlpool tub. We are meticulous with our cleaning here and...

Always excellent peaceful and enjoyed immensely. Owners are great people, and always make us welcomed. We have been coming for 15 years now, and look forward to coming again in November. I appreciate how they are always improving the cabins for the best visit possible.

We had a wonderful weekend in the Americana cabin. The weather was beautiful, and sometimes almost too warm for a cozy fire. We hiked alot and relaxed in the whirlpool tub. Watched several great movies and just relaxed. Nice to not have TV, and phone service sometimes. A real getaway for two.

My girlfriend and I stay at one of the dog-friendly cabins with our cocker-spaniel every year for our anniversary/Valentine's Day. Even in the dead of winter, Kishauwau is a beautiful, comfortable retreat from the hustle and bustle of our big city environment in Chicago. Terisa and the rest of the staff are so friendly and hospitable when you need them...

This is such a great place to sit back and relax. Either around the outside fire pit or the inside wood stove it is just so quiet and relaxing. I can't say enough about this place. This was our third time in the cabins. We have stayed in three different cabins and loved them all.

Spent a two-night getaway weekend the day after Thanksgiving. Owner's were kind enough to allow us a short stay during a normal four night minimum time period. Cabin was very clean and spacious for a couple. Distance between cabins allows for a great feeling of privacy. Large two-person whirlpool in the bath had plenty of hot water using an on-demand...

“If I were to make any suggestions I would say that a bedside table on both sides of the bed would be nice. Also, perhaps a set of TV trays would be useful as they could be used like side tables while using the futon as a couch. But these are minor issues. All in all a very good time.”
