Utica cabin description

PLEASE NOTE: We are an adult-only rental. All guests must be at least 25 years of age. Waterpark passes are not available with this unit, nor can they be purchased. Amenities open to the public (i.e., Enchanted Forest, Canyon Creek Mini Golf) are not included, but may be purchased directly at the resort.

Our cabin features over 2,800 square feet of woodland luxury wedged only minutes between the breathtaking trails and waterfalls of Starved Rock and Matthiessen State Parks.

Accommodating up to 12 people, our cabin offers open space galore. The great room looks out to a wooded wonderland, and features multiple seating areas. The fully-applianced kitchen is well-stocked for making big breakfasts and overlooks the dining area. The private upper level master bedroom has a vaulted ceiling, fireplace, whirlpool tub, and separate bathroom. Two additional oversized bedrooms are located in the lower level, including a second master bedroom with two queen size beds, fireplace, whirlpool tub, and separate bathroom. The third bedroom boasts two sets of bunks, each with a twin upper and queen lower bed. Another full bathroom and laundry room with full-sized washer/dryer can be found in the lower level.

Perhaps the best feature of our cabin, however, is its location in the westernmost section of the resort. Tucked on a private cul-de-sac, the building backs to the wildlife preservation, making a perfect retreat after a long day of hiking. Spend some time relaxing on the deck while taking in the many sights and sounds of nature. Here, we've enjoyed an abundance of wildlife: deer, raccoon, groundhogs…even a bobcat! And for you birdlovers: pileated woodpeckers, sapsuckers, wrens, nuthatches, owls, warblers, flycatchers, tanagers...the list is endless.

It’s the perfect environment to unwind, enjoy, and make lasting memories. We hope to see you soon!

                          Year Purchased: 2006

                          About the owner: My husband and I truly love the Starved Rock area and visit often. Both of us like running, so there’s nothing like stepping out our door onto some of Illinois’ most coveted trails. We are also avid cyclists and enjoy being only moments away from the I&M trail system, and about 30 minutes from the Hennepin Canal. I also enjoy birding, which keeps me plenty busy given the area’s diverse eco-systems. And can’t forget to mention the local golf is great.

                          Why the Owner Chose Utica:
                          Starved Rock is quite simply the most perfect weekend getaway for us. Of course the trails allure most of us, but there are plenty of opportunities for everyone: horseback riding, canoeing, boating, fishing, star gazing, or just taking time to relax with friends and family. We love the local shopping, so be sure to stop by the quaint little town of Utica which is full of charm (as well as chocolate). While there, try a local tasting at one of two wine shops and then pick up some gourmet popcorn or cupcakes. Afterwards, don’t forget to stop by Duffy’s for a great burger.

                          The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
                          We love nature. There was no better location for us than to be tucked in the back of the resort with the wildlife preservation as our backdrop. Lounging on the deck is perfect for relaxing moments. Grab a cup of coffee, close your eyes, and listen to nature’s symphony. There’s nothing like it.
