You'll be transported to an old-fashioned world of 19th-century living from the moment you walk into your unique cottage.
These themed vintage cottages have names like Garden Room, Maples Room, Wash Room, and Gables Room.
While each room is different, they all have a mini fridge, coffee maker, desk, TV, and area for sitting. Room rates start as low as $119 per night for a room that comfortably fits two.
There are five regular cottages with either one or two beds in them as well as a family-sized cabin called the Buggy Shop House that has two beds, two bathrooms, a private yard, and a living room, dining room, and kitchen. The price is $300 per night for that one.
Breakfast is included in the price of your stay. Start each morning with a fresh, home-cooked breakfast served with a side of Southern hospitality.
Two guests are included on the breakfast tab per room. Extra guests can stay and eat for just $25 per person.
Maple Leaf Cottage Inn is full of fun amenities. Guests can enjoy the fire pit, rent bikes, and explore the gorgeously landscaped gardens morning, noon, or night.
Off-site, there are a wealth of nearby things to do. It's just a short drive to Alton or Grafton where a plethora of attractions await, like water parks, hiking trails, river boat cruises, zip lining, and more.
Additionally, you must make a stop in the historic village of Elsah for shopping, dining, and entertainment.
