Just a a wonderful and relaxing time. Peace and quiet is abundant as well as picturesque views. A short drive to Starved Rock and Mattheison Parks. All of the comforts of home in a secluded area. I've been coming for years and I will continue for many more years.

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...

This was our second stay at Kishauwau. We werent able to get the same cabin as the first time due to a bug problem but this one was just as wonderful. The cabins are clean, private and modern. The one we had this year had a new back porch on it which allowed us to enjoy the look of our...

Well, let me first start by saying that we bomb all of our cabins for bugs numerous times a year because we are in the woods with them, so it's just to keep any at bay because nobody likes them. We are thrilled that you liked the cabin location that we moved you to and thank you very much for...

Location, location, location...Nice spot, close to the main reception area, yet very private. Clean, pet friendly, secure. And being in the woods, in nature, awesome. Woodsy and wildlife accents really make the cabin in the woods feel like home.

We are so glad you liked the location of that cabin. It is the hardest of the dog friendly cabins to get into for that reason. We really appreciate you taking the time out of your busy schedule to tell others what you thought about your experience here. We hope to see you again sometime. Terisa King and the Kishauwau...

We are so glad you folks enjoyed your whole experience and were able to get out and enjoy the natural beauty of our surroundings here. If you get back to the area and didn't get out to see if you should also check out Matthiessen State Park. That is my personal favorite! Terisa King and the Kishauwau Family

We absolutely loved our stay in the Apache cabin. The grounds were beautiful and we'll kept. The cabin was charming and fully equipped for our stay. Also, can't forget about that amazing bathtub! We can't wait to return for our next trip.

This was my fourth time, I think staying here. It was perfect as always. I always take my two dogs with, and have stayed at a couple different of the "dog friendly" cabins. This most recent time was the "Mother in Law" cabin. The cabin is warm and comfortable, great bed, soft sheets and Quilts. We enjoyed great walks on...

For those looking to get away from it all, just don't bring any of it with you! A great destination for scenic hiking spots, antiquing, wine-tasting, river-floating, or just a drive in the country. No television reception, but an excellent selection of movies, should you find yourself rained in. Staying in is no problem, as the cabins are clean, neat,...

“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.”
