Our cabin was bigger than I expected and I loved the rustic charm. Meeting Maggie and hearing her talk about the area was a highlight of the weekend. She was very charming and definitely steered us in the right direction. Would definitely recommend breakfast at Café Crumbles. It rained all day Saturday but we found plenty to do in the...

We had our belated honeymoon here. Our visit over the weekend was awesome. The owner Maggie is very kind and sweet to know. We enjoyed ourselves so much we can't wait until we plan our 2nd trip. Wonderful place to visit and love the views from the park.

The owner, Maggie, tried to be very accommodating and seemed to be very gracious. It seemed like a long walk to our cabin through the ice and snow from the parking area. Our television didn't work and we called Maggie. But, she never offered to come look at it and tried to fix the problem over the phone. This went...

I went with my boyfriend, and we had a great time. Very secluded, very comfy bed, and tons of channels on the TV. Everything is very clean. There was a deer family that came around two of the four days we were there. I would definitely recommend this place to a friend. A great place to visit to get away...

We spent two nights at the Nest. It was in a good, central location for the day trip to Galena, IL. The nearby state park was absolutely beautiful, with breathtaking views of the Mississippi. The cabin was cozy and private, with a very comfortable bed. The kitchen was nice, the only drawback was no stove. We would have like to...

My husband and I had a 2 night stay at the nest. It was our wedding night and it was fabulous. It was so peaceful, all the stress of the days leading up to it were absorbed in that bed... What a wonderful place. Our cabin was the starlight and it was very comfy, the hot tub was very relaxing...

We chose the Nest based on the availability of the following in the descriptions: Bikes available Walking distance to the state park Hot tub Outdoor space for AM coffee The bikes were dusty/spider webby but they were in a barn so that is expected, but if you knew you had guests wouldn't you clean them? No matter, the big problem...

We booked a cabin not knowing what to expect. The place far exceeded our wildest dreams. Maggie is the best. Her attention to detail is second to none. The cabin was everything it was suppose to be and more. Upon opening the door I was shocked at the size. Very roomy for 2 people. The bed sucked you in and...

My husband and I found The Nest two years ago for our honeymoon. We loved the cabin and the location. Once we arrived we were pleasantly surprised at how secluded we felt. Yes the cabin is a bit dated as some would say but my husband and I loved the look. The owners do not intrude but if you need...
