“Such a beautiful weekend!”
Reviewed 26 August 2012

The Albertella Homestead was perfect for me and my two friends. We enjoyed the stellar accommodations (especially the porch) tremendously and kayaking the Kickapoo River was stunning. Hope to go back sometime soon. Joe and Dave are such genuine kind men--it was a pleasure to meet them both.

Room Tip: There's no bad choice, but the Albertella was perfect for the three of us!

I was part of a group of teachers taking a week-long class at the nearby Kickapoo Valley Reserve. Our accommodations were already arranged for us and, wow, we were all pleasantly surprised. As we compared notes we found that we all had a baggie of fresh cookies waiting for us. Most of us had random roommates and the accommodations made that as comfortable as possible. Each morning we ground coffee, sat on the rockers on the deck, and watched the sunrise over the valley. My only complaint is that we were so busy during our class at the Reserve that we didn't have nearly enough time to explore the Ranch. Guess I'll just have to make a return visit. Dang!

Room Tip: We stayed in the Albertella which had two bedrooms -- the main room with a King size bed and a small...

My wife and I stayed in the Albertella cabin during 4th of July week. We were both pleasantly surprised by the quality of the accommodation and attention to detail. You can tell that Cowboy Joe puts his heart and soul into maintaining this upscale retreat (one that is reasonably priced) and making sure his guests have comfort and peace. And we did. While we spent a good amount of time biking the fantastic country roads, we found the cabin and vibe very comfortable and relaxing. It was a real treat to return to a nicely air conditioned cabin after biking in 100 + degree weather.

It was great to slow things down and see, experience and appreciate the beauty and culture of this area. As that great philosopher, Ferris Bueller, once said:"Life moves pretty fast. You don't stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it." The Kickapoo Vally Ranch delivers with the not missin' it part!

KRV is truly perfect. Excluding the singing birds, there is nothing but silence here, all day and all night. We stayed 4 nights in the Big Sky Getaway and spent the days hiking in nearby Wildcat Mountain State Park and Kickapoo Valley Forest Preserve. Upon arrival at the Ranch, Cowboy Joe met us with a warm welcome, maps, and area information. Worth noting: the cleanliness of the cabin was above and beyond impeccable. Had you told me that the cabin was brand new and we were the first people to ever stay, I would have believed it. No wear and tear, no dust, no signs of other guests. The bedding is plush and snuggly, the kitchenette immaculate, and the cookies simply devine. Our favorite part of the Ranch was sitting on our back porch in the evenings, overlooking the wooded hills of the forest preserve, beyond the grazing horses. (Note: The Ranch's website is not overstating the lack of things "to do;" we were glad we packed in all of our food as grocery stores and restaurants are sparse without a significant drive. We also had no cell signal throughout the area.)

What a wonderful place to get away to and just relax and let go of the worries of the world! No highway sounds, no annoying TV, no maids knocking on your door...nothing but nature and you. If you are looking for a place to unwind and do absolutely nothing (unless you want to)...this is the place to go. From the cookies awaiting you in your cabin, to the wonderful decor in the room, to the comfy rockers on the porch...and don't forget the coffee!

We will definitely be back to experience this peaceful, relaxing ranch.

Room Tip: We stayed in the Whitetail Cabin which was very quiet; but I think all the cabins would be the same.

What a great place for a peaceful retreat! We stayed for 5 days and had a great time. We loved exploring all the back country roads and hiking trails around the ranch. Cowboy Joe was so friendly and helpful. Definitely worth the drive from Central IL.

Room Tip: Big Sky cabin has a great bed and a jacuzzi tub and is a little separated from the other cabins.

Webster defines the word 'serene' as "calm, peaceful and untroubled; tranquil", and there is absolutely no doubt that the word 'serene' is the best to embody the spirit of the Kickapoo Valley and the KV Ranch. This was not my first visit to the ranch, but rather my first "getaway" visit with my girlfriend. From the moment you step out of your car, to the last goodbye, Cowboys Joe and David make you feel like family. Miss Kitty's Rendezvous was spacious and cozy. The bed was comfortable and inviting. There's nothing like a gas stove fireplace in the corner burning all night long - and seeing the snow gently cascading down outside. I'd also be lying if I said one of the staple motivations for driving from Minneapolis wasn't David's home-baked cookies - they'll be waiting for you in your cabin upon arrival and are extraordinary.

There's something for everyone at the KV Ranch, and I know you'll leave feeling rejuvenated like we did. We can't wait to come back again to see the beauty of the valley in yet another season - thanks guys!
