Starved Rock Vacation Rentals

Just booked in Starved Rock

My place is close to Starved Rock. You’ll love my place because of the coziness, the views, and the location. My place is good for couples, families (with kids), and big groups.
  • This place was awesome. Just as described

    Miguel2017-08-14T00:00:00Z
  • A must have Cabin at starved rock. The amount of space for the budget was simply outstanding. The amount of fancy amenities included hot tub, balconies, tv, internet, huge bathrooms. A must stay.

  • Had a weekend visit with my parents. The unit suited our needs perfectly, and Barbara was great. She answered all of my questions and helped make our stay very comfortable. We plan to visit again in the future.

    Daniel2017-04-02T00:00:00Z
  • We loved staying at Barbara's place! It was new, spotless, and very comfortable accommodating five adults. The location was right across from beautiful Starved Rock State Park. It was a perfect fit for us. Barbara was super helpful and answered our questions very promptly. Definitely a wonderful place to stay!

    Maddie 2017-08-11T00:00:00Z
  • Place was great had everything we needed, plenty of room for 8 people!

    Karey2017-04-07T00:00:00Z
  • Barbara's place is a special place to stay. She has everything in the kitchen you need. Coffee maker, spoons , forks, toaster, etc. I loved that once my family and I got there it was so clean and homie. I will definitely go there again. Thank you Barbara.

    Anna2017-07-26T00:00:00Z
  • Our group had a great time at Barb's place! Plenty of beds to go around with room to spare. Very close to Starved Rock which was our destination. If you're arriving at night it can be a little tricky to find but definitely worth it. Next time we venture out for weekend hiking in the area, this will definitely be our place to come back to.

    Zarin2016-11-20T00:00:00Z
  • We had a great time with the kids, thanks to Barbara. Her cabin was clean, fully stocked and perfectly tranquil in the Starved Rock area. She was always responsive and timely to our inquiries and especially generous for our family vacation. The kids can't wait to go back!

    Starved Rock Getaway
    31 reviews
    Relaxing Vacation Villa surrounded by beautiful woods with lush green landscaping located on the out skirts of the quaint town of Utica IL.
    1800 square feet living space, makes this the ideal lodging choice for several families or a group of friends seeking a relaxing getaway just beyond Chicago. Fireplace and television in the family room, a kitchen and dining area, 2 bedrooms upstairs, 2 baths (1 upstairs and 1 downstairs- wheel chair assessable, shower only), full-size washer and dryer and two balconies with awesome views. The kitchen is complete with major appliances, a coffee maker, toaster, dinnerware, utensils for 8, and basic cookware. The Master Bedroom features a king size bed, sofa, fireplace, television, a private vanity, and a jacuzzi tub. The second bedroom has two queen size beds and a TV.
    You are only minutes away from scenic Starved Rock State Park and Matthiessen State Park where the hiking trails are amazing and the canyons are breath taking. You may discover a hidden waterfall while you are there. In-town, enjoy wine tasting, shop or treat yourself to one of the sweet shops for yummy ice cream, popcorn or cupcakes. There is a restaurant on site or discover one of Utica's finest dinning establishments.
  • Comfortable and wonderful location, moments from Starved Rock State Park and in the complex of Grizzly Jacks. The unit is spacious, clean, and well laid out. We had more space than needed for my family (2 adults/2 kids), and have already considered coming back with some friends for longer than a single over night. Be aware that the kitchen "stock" is bare bones - plates, bowls, cutlery, pans. That's about it. If you're planning to cook, make sure to bring any key utensils as there are minimal (only knife is a small paring knife and only cutting board is not even the size of a piece of paper), and bring all spices (incl salt & pepper) and cooking items (butter, oil, aluminum foil, etc) that you might use. That said, we'd be happy to stay here again.

    Mike2017-05-14T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful villa, had a great girls getaway. Everyone was very impressed with the place and all enjoyed their stay!

    Mayra2017-05-28T00:00:00Z
  • The Villa is Absolutely beautiful! I stayed with a group of 9 friends and we were able to walk to one of the canyons in Starved Rock. The place is cozy and we definitely had room for 4 couples and one extra friend. I had a great time and our group of friends would definitely book this place again for another weekend get away!

    Christopher2017-07-23T00:00:00Z
  • Lori's home was great for our family weekend getaway to the local state parks. It was clean, spacious and accommodating. The location was ideal to get to the parks. Lori responded to all our questions and instructions were easy and helpful

    Logan2017-09-24T00:00:00Z
  • Although I am the first reviewer, this obviously is a host who knows what they are doing. I stayed with my wife, 3 year old and 9 month old. Bringing a young family it was a great surprise to have a villa that was well equipped and had many unexpected amenities - kitchen with supplies, spare toiletries, a tote of toys (which my son was not to ecstatic to have to leave behind!) and others. The place itself is very spacious, I believe it is almost 2,000 square feet. Both bedrooms were the size of a large master bedroom. Michael was easy to work with and responded quickly to communications before and during our stay. The location is perfect. it is basically across the street from Starved Rock State Park and you can be on your hike within 5 minutes of leaving the villa. The best endorsement is that we are already talking about coming back in the fall.

    Kevin2017-07-16T00:00:00Z
  • Host was awesome and quickly responded to all questions. The place was incredibly clean and very spacious. Very family oriented and the little ones loved playing with the bin of toys the host left there. The unit was close to the playground which was strategically placed next to an outdoor bar, fun time was had by all.

    Angela2017-08-06T00:00:00Z
  • Very nice and quiet place, ideally located in a peaceful resort with restaurants, an indoor pool, a mini golf, and at a 3 mn walk from the Starved Rock park. The home is clean and with all amenities. Mike was a very nice and attentive host during our stay.

    Pierre2017-07-30T00:00:00Z
  • The location was perfect! I would definitely recommend it to others. The area was nice and quiet. Everyone was friendly in the area. Although there were many families staying on the property, it was very peaceful in our home. Michael was very responsive as well. 5 stars across the board!

    Adrianne2017-08-12T00:00:00Z
  • Wow! This place is amazing! It is HUGE...I highly highly recommend and can't wait to come back! Tips for your stay: 1. Bring ice - there is not an ice maker...there are ice cube trays though! 2. Bring lots of people because there is so much room! 3. Enjoy!! It is seriously an amazing condo!

    Courtney2017-09-04T00:00:00Z
  • Large, well-appointed, and just down the road from the state parks. Looks more like a resort than a private home.

    Elena2017-09-10T00:00:00Z
  • Our stay at Michael's place was exactly what we had hoped for. Inside, there was plenty of room for both a small group of only a few, or a larger group of 8 or 9. Being able to use internet and watch the smart TV gave us the perfect place to relax! The resort was almost completely ours the first night, but filled up with families once the weekend arrived. Thank you for your hospitality, Michael!

    Sunshine, changing seasons and gorgeous fall colors await our guests. Our quiet villa has space to relax, plenty of games and popcorn for families ready to unplug. A water park, mini golf, and petting zoo are also available on site. When you want adventure, Starved Rock State Park is across the street and offers year round access to hiking, as well as boating, fishing, etc. If you're planning a Girls' Weekend/Guys' Getaway there are wineries, a distillery and a craft brewery all minutes away.
    Light and airy end unit.
  • We had a great time. This townhouse is located in the villas at Great Bear Resort. Not exactly the quiet retreat we were hoping for, but it was clean and all that we needed was available. It is a great location, close to Starved Rock state park. It would be especially nice for a family that would also enjoy the resort activities. We would choose the sunny retreat again, if we vacation in this area again.

    Demi2017-09-19T00:00:00Z
  • Dawn's place is beautiful and feels so cozy. Unfortunately we got there late in the evening and had to leave early the next morning but we wish we could have stayed longer! The beds were very comfortable, the bathrooms were clean and the showers were great after a long day of hiking and boating. We didn't get to use the kitchen or the family room areas but both were beautiful. Highly recommend for the Starved Rock area!

    Tal2017-09-04T00:00:00Z
  • We had a great experience at the villa, very clean and beautiful place

  • Great place. Close to Starved Rock state park. The unit is part of a larger property that has other units and a hotel. Hotel has a water park that you can purchase day passes for. House is perfect size for six. Might be a bit tight with anymore.

    Evan2017-09-04T00:00:00Z
  • Rich and his family made everything easy to follow (directions, location, etc). We knew starved rock would be crowded for the holiday and we were very grateful we could hike directly from the cabin to the park.

    Sharon2017-07-23T00:00:00Z
  • Douglas made us feel welcome even before we got there. He was kind, accommodating, and flexible in responding to all our inquiries. The only thing that could improve is the instructions for the thermostat. It was a bit chilly. Thankfully there is a fireplace!

The next morning we comfortably got ready there even with the addition of our mothers, the photographers, hairdressers, and makeup artist. The night of our wedding, the groom and I spent the night. Sue was very accommodating with check-in and check-out. Excellent communication! Great cabin in a great location. Would recommend.

  • The cabin was very spacious and clean. We had three families, with a total of 14 people, on vacation together and we had a great time. We enjoyed the resort waterpark with a day pass, star gazing at night, and even a day trip to Chicago. The surrounding area is very quaint, but the stores close early and some grocery items were hard to come by. The cabin was equipped with all of the supplies we needed to enjoy our stay.

    Melanie2016-12-30T00:00:00Z
  • Our stay was perfect here - the cabin is very spacious, organized and has everything one would need for a group stay. We had a large group and everyone had plenty of space and a bed to sleep in. The hosts are extremely responsive if you have any questions and helpful in every way. I would definitely plan another stay here and recommend it for others!

    Lynda2016-07-11T00:00:00Z
  • We had a great time and the place was as described. Lots of room, comfortable, and clean! We loved having a place large enough for four generations to stay and we enjoyed hiking, golfing, and visiting the wineries. Would stay here again :)

    Kathy2016-08-02T00:00:00Z

    Jeffrey2017-06-25T00:00:00Z
  • Very nice cabin. Clean, good beds, and especially liked having 4 bathrooms. Bath towels were provided, but not hand towels or wash cloths, so lodgers will need to bring these. The kids always enjoy the water park and arcade that are on the grounds. Great place for our family reunion!

    Cathy2016-09-06T00:00:00Z
  • The house was clean and very comfortable. Needed to go out and purchase kitchen towels, frying pan and pots and toilet paper. Wouldn't say the kitchen is fully equipped. We had a good time and would go again but be more prepared. Lori

    Lori2017-07-14T00:00:00Z
  • Ideally located for access to all hiking trails. Close proximity to the indoor pool if thats what you are looking for and cant find a room that is connected. Easy parking, and the the living space and kitchen area offer a wide open space to hang out and mingle.

  • The cabin was absolutely perfect for a nice little get way! We were very happy seeing there were essentials such as garbage bags, pots and pans, plates, silverware, and cleaning supplies for us to use during our stay. The golf courses were fairly close and restaurants around the area were delicousin! If you're looking for a great cabin for a nice getaway, this is your perfect place to stay.

    Our Cabin by the Rock is close to Starved Rock State Park, parks, restaurants and dining. You’ll love our place because of the beautiful nature surrounding the cabin. This is a great place for family reunions, business retreats, or romantic getaways!
    Our cabin is a comfortable, modern space with very comfortable queen and king sized beds. Our upscale furnishings make this cabin unique!
    We love the quiet, woodsy feel of the neighborhood. Many days are spent strolling around, looking at the natural setting.
  • We had a wonderful stay at the cabin for our wedding weekend! It was the perfect place to stay with a larger group of people, as it accommodates many and has lots of space to spread out. We utilized the common areas a lot and it has a beautiful backyard just footsteps away from water. Near starved rock and not too far from town and other great little spots. We thoroughly enjoyed our time at the cabin!

  • The cabin was amazing for our retreat! Spectacular cabin. I really wish we had stayed longer.

    Joshua2017-07-16T00:00:00Z
  • We enjoyed our trip to the starved rock area very much. The owner is very welcoming, easy to reach & communicate, and genuinely concerned with her guests. Any problem we had, was quickly and friendly solved. Five stars!

    Rozemie2017-04-02T00:00:00Z
  • We really enjoyed our stay and plan to return one day soon. Great accommodations and beautiful home. Have made so many great memories!

    Itza2017-04-23T00:00:00Z
  • All we can say is that everything was terrific. Beautiful clean place. Everything we needed was there. Kitchen well stocked with Pots Pans Dishs ect. Lots of games and books and DVDs. Even extra tables and chairs in closet if we had needed them. Beds confortable. Plenty of space for our entire family to enjoy Thanksgiving holiday together.

    Richard2016-11-25T00:00:00Z
  • This is an exceptional value. We would have paid about the same or a little more at the nearby Starved Rock Lodge for three tiny rooms. The home is well appointed with vacation, cabin and outdoor themes. It is very clean and very quiet. The bedrooms are large and the beds are very comfortable. The kitchen is well stocked with dishes, pots and pans, silverware, etc., making it easy to set up for any meals you want to eat in. Host Cathy was in contact with us before, during and after our stay, promptly answering any questions we had. The home is very close to a number of attractions, especially three beautiful state parks. Since this was a very busy weekend in the Starved Rock area, we felt relieved to get out of the heavy traffic and overflowing parking lots to return to the peace and quiet of this home. Although the home is adjacent to a small hotel complex, it is far enough away on a residential street with a small lake and trees behind to give the feeling of being in the wilderness. We would love to return some time soon.

    James2016-10-16T00:00:00Z
  • Everything was as advertised and then some. We never needed to reach out to Cathy with questions but she made herself clearly available.

    Aaron2017-07-23T00:00:00Z

    Mike2016-10-30T00:00:00Z
  • Steve's place was great. It was exactly as described, clean, and beautifully kept. It included anything you might need in the kitchen, plenty of towels, coffee, and detergent for the washing machine. It was also right across from starved rock, so the location was perfect. Our family would definitely stay in this place again.

    Dulce2016-10-23T00:00:00Z
  • Steve was a great host! Very helpful and hospitable. He even called us ahead of time to inform us of traffic on our route to the cabin. He made sure our stay was comfortable and we had everything we needed. The cabin itself was perfect: clean, large, and in a very convenient location. We would definitely stay here again.

    My place is close to Starved Rock State Park. My place is good for couples, solo adventurers, business travelers, families (with kids), and big groups.
  • The townhome was great. Just as we expected. Lots of space and the Host is always responsive. Really enjoy coming back to the area. Already planning to rent again in near future with Callie.

    Scott2016-10-09T00:00:00Z
  • Our stay in Calley's North Utica townhouse was great. Calley was an excellent host, responding promptly to messages and helped us find the townhouse when we got lost. We were there for a guys golf weekend, and the home was perfect for the five of us. Very large kitchen, dining area and family room. The two bedrooms were very large with plenty of room for 6+ adults. The townhouse was in the Grand Bear lodge, so it would be perfect for individuals visiting the resort. The townhouse is also minutes from Starved Rock, so great for family vacations.

    Dulce2016-10-02T00:00:00Z
  • Very helpful and responsive.

    Carolyn2017-05-29T00:00:00Z

    Elizabeth 2017-04-30T00:00:00Z
  • This was a wonderful experience, and very easy! I would recommend this place to anyone looking for a quiet, and comfortable place to stay.

    Marquitta2017-09-04T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed at Calley's place for our family gathering, my husband, 21 month old toddler, and my in-laws. The house is very tastefully decorated, it is well maintained and clean. Wifi is good. Calley is responsive and answers questions quickly. The basic supplies in the kitchen are quite comprehensive I would say, including lots of cups, glasses, plates, bowls, cutlery, pots, pans, cookie sheet, spatula, knife, cutting board, coffee maker, toaster, and one roll of kitchen towel. The kitchen equipment is also functioning well, we used the stove, oven, dishwasher, fridge. Wished there is more than one extra trash bag because it was not enough for us. Plan to bring your own body wash, shampoo, lotion etc because those amenities are not provided. The towels are plenty and clean. There are also extra pillows in the closet which I appreciate because I needed double pillows as they are too soft. Overall, the whole family was very happy with the stay. Thank you Calley!

    Chai-Ling2017-07-04T00:00:00Z
  • Calley's villa is located in a perfect place for visitors to Starved Rock with more than enough space to accommodate 9 guests. There were a few minor issues, but Calley was quick to respond and super helpful. She also provided info on local activities, which was much appreciated. We enjoyed our stay and hope to book again with her in the near future!

    Sadaf2017-07-08T00:00:00Z
  • I don't think the whole weekend could have gone much smoother. Calley put any qualms to rest when she responded to my first question within about ten minutes (it may have been sooner). Communication was never a problem, which is typically my main concern. The villa was great: everything was very clean and there were plenty of towels, silverware, dishes, etc. It looks nicer in person than through the photos, although the dining/living room area is somewhat dark. Overall, I have no complaints and definitely recommend booking with Calley and her property if you're on the fence.

  • The cabin is incredibly beautiful. It had everything we possibly needed. Barbara was incredibly helpful with every step of the rental. I actually got a flat a few miles away and two people from the area where nice enough to help! Overall it was a great experience and I would definitely go back and recommend to anyone else.

    Jackie2016-12-11T00:00:00Z
  • The place is great. we stayed over New Year's Eve and day. The house is very spacious, beautiful interior. The beds are comfy. A lot of space and a lot of privacy at the same time with the right mount of bedrooms and bathrooms. Barbara is a great host, extremely responsive and accomodating.

    Katie2017-01-02T00:00:00Z
  • Barbara is the ultimate in being an attentive host! This was our first Airbnb experience, and she set the bar high. She was willing to answer many questions before we booked (we rented 2 of her units close together). She knew we were celebrating my grandma's birthday, and had a flower arrangement upon our arrival for the birthday girl! Check-in was a breeze. The units are HUGE, there was plenty of room to spread out. The location is super close to Starved Rock State Park and we enjoyed hiking there. The only issue we experienced was some dishes that had been put away dirty, which I can't fault the owner for at all, as well as some sheets that were clearly dirty. Barbara was super responsive to any concerns and made them right immediately. Communication was super fast. Overall, we would definitely stay here again, and highly recommend it!

    Deb2017-05-07T00:00:00Z
  • Definitely would return again. It is very spacious and clean. Rooms were big with enough space in order to be comfortable. Since it was 11 of us staying here, having 4 bathrooms was a plus. Barbara was great at answering any questions we had. We really made use of the nice kitchen since basic pots and pans were provided. Definitely the place to stay at with friends and family. We felt as if we were home.

  • My husband, dog, and I all had a wonderful stay at Steve's place. The villa was just as described, very clean, and Steve was very engaged in making sure our stay was great. We really enjoyed the proximity of this condo to Starved Rock and walking the grounds of Grizzly Jack's. Look forward to staying here again sometime!

    Amanda2017-07-05T00:00:00Z
  • I stayed at Steve's place with seven of my friends and we were extremely comfortable. Steve communicated information before and during our stay and made check in/check out very easy. Very clean and comfortable. Super close to Starved Rock State Park and Matthiessen State Park. Awesome place. Would stay again.

    Aaron2017-05-29T00:00:00Z
  • Steve was a great Host, he made sure that the tempature was warm enough when we arrived and answered all of my questions. The weather was pretty bad and even offered another day free of charge for safety reasons. He is a very nice man and I will totally refer this place to my friends and family. I know that I will come back.

    Jenny2016-12-18T00:00:00Z

  • Our stay at Steve's cabin at Starved Rock was outstanding. He was an amazing host - checked in daily, even with local weather reports and shelter info in case of bad storms. The one time we ran out of an item it was literally there within 10 minutes. I'd recommend Steve as a host to anyone!

    Lisa2017-04-12T00:00:00Z
  • Steve communicated very well. The condo is clean, modern, and comfortable. Starved Rock State Park is definitely worth seeing. We enjoyed coming back to warm fires and family dinners.

  • This place is extremely close to both parks. It is super clean and pretty quiet. Steve was very helpful and recommended multiple areas for us to hike. He has been one of the best hosts I have met yet!

  • We stayed there for a long Memorial Day weekend with a couple good friends and our kids ages 2 and 5. The place was comfortable and exactly what we wanted for a mini getaway. The layout of the place was spacious and rooms/beds were comfy and clean. The kitchen was fully stocked and we were able to cook/eat-in which was great with the kids. At night, we went Starved Rock (Bar Door Lounge) and were able to enjoy a few drinks while watching the sunset and listening to live music. Kids were also happy with their ice cream. The only thing we missed about the cabin was a grill but that was an issue with the whole resort, nothing that Steve could do about it. It is ideally located within the resort and close to the hiking attractions, i.e. Starved Rock and Matthiessen State Park but also on the outskirts of the resort where it was much quieter for such a busy weekend. We saw crowds when we walked around the resort but it was very quiet and comfortable when we were by our cabins. Steve was a great host! He gave us updates on the weather and seemed quickly available. Also, check-in and check-out was easy and flexible. I would highly recommend his place if you are looking for a good balance between relaxation and adventure!

  • This place was amazing! There was plenty of space for 8 people to comfortably sleep and move around in. The place was clean and had everything you needed and more. Steve was very easy to communicate with before, during, & after the stay. Overall, great experience!! Would highly recommend!

  • The cabin was spacious. My family of 8 had plenty of room. It was very clean and had all the essentials we needed. It had two large bathrooms plus a sink in master bedroom which gave all of us a place to use without much waiting. The decor was cozy and rustic. Just perfect for the woods. It is located on the Grizzly Jack Resort property and less than a mile from Straved Rock State Park so it was close to activities. It was like coming home at the end of a day of hiking.
