The Whole Family Will Love A Visit To This Adorable Riverside Cabin In Illinois
The state of Illinois is more than bustling cities like Chicago. It is also a state filled with natural beauty. What better way to get away from it all than to head into the peaceful tranquility of your own log cabin? Nestled at the edge of not one, but
two state parks, is the family-friendly Goose Island Cabin, a secluded riverside eco-retreat in Illinois. Leave the blue light of your devices behind and bask in the sunshine of this whimsical and rustic rental for the whole family.
Goose Island Cabin has a history dating all the way back to the 1830s when the land was home to native peoples of the area. Then, in the 1850s, the property was deeded to an early settler. The cabin has been passed down through the same family ever since it was built in 1907.
The cabin has since been updated to suit the needs of the modern world while still holding true to its back-country charm. Visitors can breathe easy: air conditioning is supplied in the bedroom, and fans are located in the living room so that warmer summer months feel comfortable.
Sometimes, it’s not just enough to look at the water – you want to get in! Canoe or kayak along Rock River, which runs 299 miles and up close to Goose Island Cabin.
If you don’t have your own equipment, a quick trip to White Pelican rental and shuttle services will help to get you to the river.
If Goose Island Cabin’s 100-acre property doesn’t cover enough ground, don’t worry. The cabin is near both the Lowden-Miller State Forest and Castle Rock State Park, totaling over 2,300 acres of combined forest. Don’t let the location fool you. Necessities abound as the cabin is only a 10-minute drive to the nearest town of Oregon, IL.
There’s oh, so much to do! Hiking, biking, games for the kids, and relaxation are just among the many ideal ways to spend your time at Goose Island Cabin.
This eco-cabin in Illinois can hold up to eight guests. There’s plenty of room, so it’s perfect for a family vacation or retreat. The cabin is also pet-friendly allowing well-behaved pets to stay as long as they are added to the guest count when booking.
Who wouldn’t love that view? Wind down with a nap in one of many hammocks or take in the scenery from the front porch and feel your stresses melt away.
When the day is at an end and the sun is setting, why not snuggle up by the fire pit? Watch the kids make s'mores and enjoy the stars while making memories that will be sure to last a lifetime.
