We spent Thanksgiving weekend 2017 at Kishauwau Country Cabins along with our two dogs. Our cabin was pristine clean when we checked in with everything in great working order. The property is serene and peaceful beyond belief! We have already booked for Thanksgiving 2018, and we foresee making this an annual thing!

My husband and I stayed here for the first time recently and we absolutely loved it! We stayed in the Pines, which is very secluded & fit everything we were looking for. The room was very clean and the bedding, furniture, towels, all of it-all very nice quality. Not what you usually expect for these types of places. We also used our wood-burning stove all 3 nights we were there and it was so nice and relaxing. We hiked at 2 of the state parks which are literally right up the road. We will be going back for sure-not far from us but still far enough to feel like we are getting away. Great place-would recommend to anyone looking for a quiet, relaxing weekend in a clean and cozy cabin!

We rented the Bridge cabin for two days and LOVED it!! The entire experience from booking to checkout was phenomenal! This is a family owned and operated property and you feel like family when you are there. If you are looking for peace and quiet and nature, look no further and book today. Thank you for an amazing time!

We stayed in the Pines cabin and it was well worth the trip. Not only was the cabin itself spacious, but the massive whirlpool tub, the outdoor porch swing, and the campfire area were a major plus. Space between the cabins is great, you're far enough away from everyone where you don't really notice anyone else around. It's beautiful out there and so peaceful. I wish we were able to stay a few more days. I hope to return soon!

We stayed in the Commanche as we took our dog with us. The cabins are better than advertised! We had such a good time, Very clean and cozy! You can't beat a bonfire and a star filled sky in peace and quiet. Sitting out on the porch early morning having coffee is priceless too! The office is well stocked with movies, books and goodies just in case you forgot to pack something! Very friendly staff as well. We'll definitely be visiting again!

We stayed here for an extended weekend in the Shady Oaks cabin. This place was perfect! surpassed all my expectations. The office with the movies, games and small things you can purchase at anytime is great concept they have and it's all on the honor system. The small family owned business is apparent and is what makes this cabin getaway the best to go to for your vacation. The area the cabins are on is so quiet and peaceful - we will be back to Kishauwau in the near future!

My family and I had a wonderful time! This place is beautiful from sitting outside at night having a bonfire to sitting on the swing listening to it rain! And having coffee in the morning! My kids loved looking for frogs/toads in the koi pond and trying to fish in the river. Looking forward to a another stay here!

My husband and I have been staying at these cabins every year for our anniversary (4 years). We fell in love with it the first time we visit. First, by the view pulling up, the space between the cabins is perfect. Next is how welcoming and kind the owners are (they are such beautiful, loving people, truly one of a kind). Then once we got into our cabin it was beautiful, each cabin has it's own beautiful view. So peaceful, little to no cell reception (perfect trip for a get away, away from everybody). My husband stated once we've stayed in every cabin, we will start over, he don't want to stay anywhere else on our special day. Thank you for the perfect location, we love it!!

My husband and I enjoyed a 2 night stay in the Americana cabin at Kishauwau. Everything about our experience was the best! The owners and staff are some of the finest people we've ever met and they work hard to ensure your stay is just what you hope for. The grounds are beautiful and well-tended; so relaxing to walk around and take in the sights and sounds of nature. The cabin was IMMACULATE, COMFORTABLE and BEAUTIFUL!! From the moment we entered that cozy retreat, we did not want to leave. We dreamed of living there because it was just perfect! We enjoyed true peace and quiet which was just what we needed---medicine for the tired spirit. A 2 night stay was way too short, so we plan to go back for a longer stay next time we have time off. Try Kishauwau---you'll LOVE it!!

Wonderful property!! We had a brief but lovely stay over 2 days during which we had engagement photos taken here and at Starved Rock. The owners are great and are available but not at all intrusive. I would choose this over a hotel any time! The fall colors were pretty and everything about the cabin was great. The one thing that we did not know was that there is a cutoff time to check in. We made it in time, but make sure you give an accurate time for check-in. It's a much more personal experience than a hotel. It's a great place to unplug and unwind. We will definitely be back!
