About the Property

Cabin, 3 Bedrooms, 4 Baths, (Sleeps 12)

Located in Grizzly Jack's Grand Bear Resort, our newly remodeled 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 building is tucked away on a private cul-de-sac backing to a wildlife preservation. The kitchen is very well-stocked, making at-home meals and gatherings a breeze. Of course, Wi-Fi and over 130 TV channels are included, along with 4 DVD players. If you're looking for extras like upgraded shower heads and water that never runs cold, we hope you'll enjoy discovering all of our other little bells and whistles that we hope make your stay exceptional.

And if having the best is how you're wired, we think you'll approve of our location in the secluded westernmost section of the resort - an idyllic retreat after a long day of hiking. Spend some time relaxing on the deck while taking in the many sights and sounds of nature. It’s the perfect environment to unwind, enjoy, and make lasting memories.

KINDLY NOTE: Waterpark passes are not included with this unit. Day passes may be purchased at the resort. Please confirm with the resort that the waterpark is available during your requested dates. While we welcome families, for adult-only gatherings all guests must be at least 25 years of age (no proms, college parties, etc.).

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: My husband and I truly love the Starved Rock area. 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 Oglesby, IL, USA:
Starved Rock is the perfect weekend getaway for us. While the trails allure most of us, 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. Try a 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:
Since we're nature buffs, 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.
