Weekend Retreat

We were in Illinois from out of state for the birth of our first grandchild. This was a good place to retreat from the hospital. Although, we didn’t spend a lot of time at the cabin, we found it clean and comfortable for four of us. I do think it would be crowded for more than four. Also, be prepared for very loud music from bar next door until late in the night. We enjoyed dinner at Moretti’s right up the hill and pastries from Village Bakery. Overall, good experience!

5/5 Excellent

Great Getaway - great view w/ a patio

Had a great time spending a fall weekend at this awesome property. Being at the bottom of the hill with lakefront access was perfect. The patient tables and chairs were perfect The house itself, while smaller in size, is very new and clean on the inside with tasteful decor. We were surprised at how accurate the pictures represented the space. Had everything we needed and the management was very professional and responsive. They even let us stay a few extra hours to finish our laundry! Cant wait to try this again in the summer. Would definitely recommend to friends or family.

This was exactly the place and location we needed for a girls getaway. The views, the coziness of the cabin, the close proximity was to dining and nightlife and how it was a great meeting point for all of us! Perfect, thank you and I will be back for hopefully longer next time!
