Romantic vacation ideas in gorgeous rural Illinois

What could be more romantic than cozying up next to your sweetheart in front of a dancing campfire underneath a twinkling blanket of stars in the rural night sky? Kishauwau Cabins provides the perfect romantic getaway to reconnect with your partner away from the daily grind, without having to fly to far-flung locations. Our cabins can be as sparse or luxurious as you want depending on the mood you’re trying to set. No matter what you’re looking for, we are confident that we have the perfect option available.

Make the experience what you want it to be

Whether you’re going for a fully rural experience and want to camp, hike, swim or otherwise enjoy the land, or you just need a change of scenery to get away from the concrete jungle of Chicago, Kishauwau Cabins provides an idyllic place to relax and bond with your loved one. With multiple nearby state parks, orchards, ranches and boating facilities, there is no lack of things to do for more active couples. While we provide an intimate, secluded atmosphere, we are still very nearby to a full range of culinary experiences in surrounding towns. Maybe you’re the type of couple that would prefer to roast marshmallows on the fire and hear the crickets chirp at night, or maybe you’re just in need of some new scenery to soak in. Either way, you’ll find the perfect accommodation at Kishauwau Cabins.

The simplicity of nature meets modern luxury

A romantic getaway should provide privacy when needed, but also ready access to social events and activities. Our unique location and facilities allow you to make your stay exactly what you want it to be, whatever your preferences are. With queen sized beds, Jacuzzis, porch swings, and flat screen TV’s available, you’ll never want for luxury. We have a range of cabin types and configurations to choose from so you can perfectly tailor the experience to your desires. These cozy arrangements contrast to the sprawling woodlands and gorgeous scenery that make for breathtaking hikes and rejuvenating afternoons taking it all in on the porch. If you’re craving a night out on the town, civilization is conveniently in full swing just a short drive away. Whether you want something rustic and intimate, or want to pamper your sweetheart, we have the place for you.
