While we know that your visit to Kishauwau is in so many ways what you
make it, we want to make sure you have what you need to have the best
time you can. Our fully featured kitchens (gas stovetop/oven, refrigerator,
microwave, coffeemaker, dishes, cookware, and silverware) offer you all
the flexibility of your kitchen at home. Bring whatever you’d like
to cook and you’ll find a kitchen up to the challenge. Please note,
due to the beauty of nature on the property (large trees), there is very
little cell phone reception. A land line telephone is left in the office
accessible to you at all times if you need to make a call.
We also provide all linens and soaps, as well as foam bath (for whirlpool
cabins). Coffee, coffee filters and sugar packets are provided in each

Items Available for Sale at Our Main Cabin
- we have some convenience items for sale in the main office on a cash only basis
We are officially back in wood stove season for the 2016/2017 year. Most
times I try to keep those fire logs for sale here for $5/log. We do sell
bundled wood like you get at a gas station on property for the outdoor
pits. Per the state guidelines they do not want you crossing county lines
with wood. We firmly want this rule abided by as we do not want to be
told by the state that we must get rid of our bonfire pits here. We max
our sales to 5 bundles a day and if you know you would like more than
that you are welcome to stop within LaSalle County and pick some up or
if you can find boxed wood for sale at any
Wal-Mart, Menards, Home Depot, etc... (stores of that nature) in any county
because they are all supplied by the same supplier. I also sell homemade
fire starters here that are really helpful in getting a wood fire or barbecue
going. Wood/$5 bundle or fire starters/$1 each. Cash only basis. $10's,
5's or singles appreciated.
Wood sources in Utica (about 8 miles north of us) would be “Village
Greenhouse Liquors, Cajun Bait & Tackle & Mill St. Market”.
In Oglesby you can purchase wood at Beck’s gas station or Loves
Truck Stop gas station. I don’t think any of the Casey’s gas
stations sell wood. Oglesby is closer if you come of I-39 or you will
pass through Utica if coming off I-80.
What to Expect
Expect serenity, clean air, soft natural sounds, pleasant neighbors, wonderful
sleep, fresh air, and fantastic memories.
