We just got home from a wonderful family weekend getaway at this beautifully decorated cabin in a lovely wooded setting in Utica. We are a family from age 6 months to 69 years and there is something for everyone to do here. It is a perfect location for our family to all meet up and make wonderful memories. We have rented from Robert several times over the years. He is a very nice man, responds immediately from booking to checking out. The cabin is very clean and it is obvious that Robert and his family take great pride in their beautiful cabin. The cabin itself has free wifi, flatscreen tv's in the living room and all the bedrooms, lots of comfy beds, a deck with chairs overlooking a wooded backyard with a pond, a fully equipped kitchen and a very large living room for everyone to relax after a long day full of fun activities. Our family spent time hiking to the beautiful waterfalls and scenery within Starved Rock State Park and Mattiesson State Park, swimming at the indoor waterpark which the little ones thoroughly enjoyed, fishing in the pond behind the cabin and actually catching a lot of little fish, going to the wineries in town for wine tasting, going to a distillary, going to a blacksmith shop, cooking all but one meal in the huge kitchen, the kid's made T-shirts at the lodge and we spent our evenings relaxing in the large living room talking about the memories we have made here. The cabin also had little snacks and water bottles for everyone,Paper towels, dishwashing soap and dishwasher soap, coffee and filters with sugar and creamers and lots of garbage bags in the kitchen, soap, little toiletries, kleenex, lots of towels, and laundry detergent in the bathroom, bedrooms and laundry room. All you have to bring is your suitcase, food and drinks and enjoy. Thank you again Robert for sharing your beautiful cabin with us. We can't wait to come back.
Amazing place to stay. Had a great time at starved rock. If you are looking for a big place that is just minutes to downtown Utica or starved rock this is the place
