Whether you’re looking for a lodging destination that will keep you cool after a hot day of hiking the trails at nearby Starved Rock State Park during the summer, or a cozy place to stay warm after a day of cross-country skiing during the winter, Kishauwau Cabins can accommodate.

All 17 cabins are four-season units, capable of keeping guests comfortable the full year round. Furnace heating, as well as indoor wood stoves and gas fireplaces, will ensure the perfect temperature in even the chilliest of Illinois months. And a central air system keeps the cabins cool during the heat of summer. There are even four, dog-friendly units, so you won’t have to board Fido during your vacation.

The cabins are spaced out far enough to give guests privacy and a sense of wilderness seclusion, while still being only a short drive from some premier Starved Rock Country attractions in Utica, Ottawa and La Salle – including 21 miles of state park trails, all located within less than a 15-minute drive of the cabins.

Another amenity that sets Kishauwau’s luxury units apart from other lodging options is the inclusion of full-sized kitchens. All the cabins have refrigerators, stoves and pantries stocked with the necessary pots, pans, plates and utensils needed to prepare and enjoy meals onsite. This comes in addition to the barbecue and fire pits, giving plenty of options for enjoying a meal without having to dine out.
