My husband Dennis and our two dogs stayed over Easter weekend. As soon as we pulled in, we knew we found the perfect place for a weekend getaway. The weather was rainy off and on all three days, but it didn't make a difference. The cabins were beautiful and homey. I fell in love with them as soon as I opened the door. They are clean, and well stocked with everything you could possibly used. They are very warm people and take pride in their resort. We have already booked another long weekend in October. The trails are awesome and the scenery was magnificent. We are close to Chicago and if we were just a little closer Im sure we would be going there more often. Our dogs loved it there, they were comfortable and made to feel welcome also. I would recommend this for pet lovers and non pet lovers. The price of their cabins is comprable to a hotel but you have so much more, especially privacy.
