Description from owner


Kishauwau Country Cabins sits very near Starved Rock State Park and even closer to Matthiessen State Park. We are situated on 65 quiet, wooded acres on a bluff above the Vermilion River. Our cabins are nicely spaced to give everyone a sense of privacy.

Jack's Deluxe Whirlpool cabin is your Illinois Romantic Getaway spot! Situated on an upper level you will enjoy your large upper level deck with patio set. It gives and extra sense of privacy. Gas grill on the upper level, large bedroom with gas fireplace (winter use only), king size bed, large 40" flatscreen tv (dvd use only, no tv channels), huge selection of movies in our office to borrow from. You can also enjoy the outdoor bonfire pit on the lower level. A great view of the woods off the back side of this cabin. All linens and cooking utensils are provided. All our cabins have central heating and air conditioning.

Make Kishauwau your Illinois cabin rental go to spot. Private luxury cabins; beautiful, secluded surroundings; some dog-friendly cabins; and welcoming, friendly faces. These are just a few of the things you'll find at Kishauwau Country Cabins, moments away from Starved Rock and Matthiessen State Parks here in north central Illinois. Your vacation is what you make it, and all the ingredients are here.

Kishauwau is an unplugged getaway for people looking to get back to nature and enjoy each other and their surroundings. It is not a partying facility and it will not be tolerated.

Please review our lodging options and rates. When you find an option that's right for you, make a reservation by using our online booking tool or by calling us. We look forward to seeing you!

Getting around

Kishauwau's Starved Rock Area Cabins is off the beaten path so plan on having your travel arranged. You almost need to come in a vehicle as most of the cab companies are going to charge a minimum of at least $35 to take you one way to even the close by destinations.

Interaction with guest

I (Terisa) or my niece Brittany are the people you will speak with here. My husband and I are the owners & live right here on property with our family. Kishauwau is family built and has been in operation for over 30 yrs. We are here for our guests needs but leave you alone once you check in to give you that well deserved getaway you've been looking for. It depends on when you check in as to whether you speak with me or not. If I am not personally checking you in, everything will be pre-arranged so that your check in goes smooth. We are always happy to give insights on area dining and activities.

Here at Kishauwau Cabins we strive to provide our guests with an experience of a forgotten time. We are firm with our policies on offering our guests a tranquil, quiet getaway. We enjoy hearing families & friends out during daytime hours having a good time within reason but expect noise levels to always be kept considerate for neighboring cabins. We do not cater to bachelor/bachelorette groups or spring break/prom groups. Friends gatherings require all in the group to be a min. of 28 yrs. old.
