My boyfriend and I stumbled upon White Pines Forest State Park in the autumn when we decided to "just drive west" from Chicago to get out of the hustle and bustle of the city for the day. After a short walk around in the pine scented air, we were hooked. So, when we were looking for a mini retreat in early spring, we knew where to go.
Unfortunately, because we booked last minute, they were out of singles, so we were in one of the adjoining cabins. With the A/C, the gas fireplace (whoosh!) and music playing lightly, we were able to feel some semblance of privacy from our neighbor who was watching television at a low, considerate volume next door. These adjoining cabins are like being in the same house with another guest on the other side of the door--fine for families sharing, but less desirable for couples wanting some privacy. All that said: we'll book earlier for a single next time!
The Sunday morning buffet was abundant and delicious. I definitely suggest making a reservation and checking their website for a coupon.
Oregon, IL is nearby, and I recommend Conover Square (in the old piano factory building) for shopping.
We're getting ready to book another mini-retreat at White Pines, and we can't wait! Ahhhh....
