Completely restored 1892 guest room in the heart of Morrison's national historic district offers Victorian elegance with many modern conveniences. Amenities include a full kitchen, washer/dryer, luxurious queen bed, Roku Smart TV, and high speed wi-fi. The 800 sq ft apartment includes original Doug Fir flooring, 10 ft high ceilings, pocket doors, claw-foot tub, custom cabinets and cherry island. Perched above an art gallery, this is the perfect clean and quiet retreat for work or leisure.
At the turn of the century 112 E. Main was a gentleman’s suit shop. Much of the original cabinetry still exists in the building, including a large chest of drawers in the guest room. The cherry counter tops, coffee bar and island all come from wood milled just north of town and custom made for the space. The building is filled with character, truly an example of recent and historic craftsmanship. It should be noted that the guestroom is on the second floor of a commercial building, so the guest(s) will need to go up 21 steps for access.
Being located in the center of downtown Morrison, the H.A. Boyd guest room is within three blocks of many restaurants and drinking establishments. For activities, stroll around town and look at Morrison's historic residential and commercial architecture. Morrison is also great for bicyclists, being surrounded by hills and five minutes from Rockwood State Park. For a drive, the Mississippi and Rock Rivers are 10 minutes away.
  • Really awesome space. Super clean, lots of charm and character. Everything you need and super cozy.

  • Located only a few feet away from a chic place called "Da Bar" and two attorney's offices one can create and have solved many of life's problems of an evening. Other fine points of this flat include stylish and attractive furnishings, a great location, an extremely inviting decor and an instantly home-like feeling. The sight lines, smells, textures and furnishings make this a special place.

  • Because I was not able to make the trip my husband was able to experience this adorable and convenient Airbnb. Communication with the super health was spot on along with all instructions and directions. The convenience and location of the Airbnb made it so that my husband could spend time with family and not have to worry about traveling. I would highly recommend this for anyone that needs to spend time in the area. He reported that it was very clean and Comfortable. Do you know men..... I couldn’t get a lot out of him. LOL! We will definitely be taking advantage of this Airbnb in the near future. Highly recommended!

  • When we saw this listing, even though it was a bit out of the way of where we were headed, we decided to book it anyway and we are SO GLAD we did! This is one of the nicest AirBnB's I have ever experienced - Kelly's place is absolutely GORGEOUS! I loved every single detail; she obviously took great care in designing the space, and takes great pride in maintaining it. The towels are soft and luxurious, and the bed is incredibly comfortable. Extra-special little touches were everywhere, from bottled water to makeup wipes. This was an absolutely perfect stay in a charming location, and I look forward to having a reason to go back there again, someday. Thank you, Kelly!

  • My family of 4 had a great time staying at Erin's house. Much more spaciousthan crowding in a hotel room. Erin had bottled water and snacks laid out for us...nice touch.

    Victoria2019-11-20T00:00:00Z
  • If you are looking for a cozy comfortable quiet getaway this cottage is the very definition Of relaxation. Although we utilize only one bedroom to sleep the upstairs had a meditation room that I thought was a very nice touch to Add onto the peacefulness you feel by staying in this home. The house has tons of character, and the owners are readily availableAnd prompt to answer questions. Thoughtful little touches all around the home for a nice little surprises as well. We found that by the end of the weekend the home had everything that we needed. I will definitely find myself passing through here again.

    Sandra2019-11-11T00:00:00Z
  • Lots of great things to say here. Big property, feels like you have privacy. The amenities are pretty great, my favorite is how well the house maintained a comfortable temperature. The host went above and beyond to provide a picture of their backyard fire spot before booking. Also very informative instructional/recommendation sheets. Highly recommended!

    Alan2019-10-27T00:00:00Z
  • Quirky old house in Grand Detour. 10 minutes from shops and restaurants in Dixon. Lovely, quiet place to stay.

    Leigh2019-10-06T00:00:00Z
  • We absolutely LOVED this place! It's a great get away spot for city dwellers. The house is spacious and clean with rooms to spread out and relax. I recommend the yoga room highly. We built camp fires, grilled, walked by the river (a block away), and almost fell asleep in the Jacuzzi bathtub. This is wonderful place to kick your feet up, turn off the phone, and reconnect with nature and the star filled sky. Thank you to Erin for being such a great hostess. We had everything we needed and more!

    El Bulli Farm private and quiet one bedroom cottage on our 4 acre hobby farm. Separate from Main House. Located just outside Dixon city limits.
    The cottage is connected to the pasture so you have views of the cows most of the time. It’s in the country but a mile plus a bit from town...we live on the property but respect our guests privacy as we go about our life on El Bulli Farm..!
    We are less than a mile from “That Place on Palmyra” Restaurant and are close to many State Parks and the Rock River.
  • Beautiful farm; great stay.

    Matthew2020-01-03T00:00:00Z

  • Relaxing, quiet and enjoyable place, in a nice area. It's clean and comfortable. I liked seeing the chickens and the cows from the windows.

    Daniel2019-12-02T00:00:00Z
  • Enjoyed our stay here at El Bulli including a toasty fire one cold evening. Only wish we could have had more time to enjoy the ambience (this is the first time I've considered a cow an "amenity"). Also recommend a couple of places in Dixon just 5 minutes away on W. 1st St.: Somkit (Thai food) and The Crystal Court (fantastic wine bar), which we enjoyed one evening followed by the Gingko Tree Cafe for breakfast the following morning.

    Sandy2019-11-30T00:00:00Z

    My home is very quite and serene , no TVs in rooms no Wi-Fi. A complete detox.
  • We are return guests at the M&M .... everything this weekend was just as we expected: PERFECT. You will love spending tine at Marsha’s farmhouse and relaxing in nature’s beauty. Her home is pretty and accommodations are spotless. Capped off with delicious breakfast and great hospitality.

    Mary2019-10-20T00:00:00Z
  • We had a wonderful experience here. The house has been beautifully restored and the property is quiet and spacious with no neighbors in site. You are close enough to town for dinner and drinks if you need to venture out. There is a drive in movie theater 30 minutes away and it is awesome. The breakfast and coffee in the morning are excellent. The room was very comfortable/private feeling. Lots of light comes in through the stained glass windows and you have views out to the trees and corn fields. I'll definitely stay here again.

    Adam2019-10-13T00:00:00Z
  • Very peaceful place out in the country where you can relax, recharge, and hear yourself think. We would love to come back if our travels bring us through this area again!

    Gretchen2019-09-02T00:00:00Z
  • Above and beyond in every way Amazing home, Marsha was so welcoming and personal. She let us bring our dog and we had the best time ever. She gave us recommendations that were amazing for say trips and cooked up delicious meals both mornings. We can't wait to go back in the winter. She shared a wonderfully delicious foraged mushroom with us in our breakfast and we were treated left and right. Beautiful room and we enjoyed the giant claw foot tub. Best get away ever

    Spencer2019-09-01T00:00:00Z
  • If you want peace and quiet in Northeastern IL nature, this is a good place to go. Marsha definitely made us welcome, as if we were old friends just catching up. The room and bathroom were clean and comfortable, and we enjoyed the unique-antique claw foot tub! Marsha's homemade breakfast always was a delicious start to our day. We recommended Marsha’s place to our friends and family.

    Mareike2019-08-11T00:00:00Z

  • Sheer words cannot manage to express how exceptional of an experience my partner, Jeremy and I had at M&M Bed & Breakfast thanks to the genuine kindness of Marsha and the positive energy of this 4th generation farm. I anticipated a touch of nature and great breakfast, yet my partner and I received essential supplements of healing in our journey as individuals and as a couple. I can’t wait to return!

    ElementYES LLC2019-07-27T00:00:00Z
  • We loved our stay at M & M Bed and Breakfast. Marsha was very welcoming and gracious. Upon request, she told the House history and gave a tour. Beautiful home, gardens and property. Room was perfect with period decor, 5-star mattress and pillows, robe and chocolates. What a treat to take a bubble bath in a vintage claw-foot tub. Well done in maintaining authenticity. Thank you for providing something different than a boring hotel room.

    Built in 1907 along a beautiful stretch of the Rock River and surrounded by thousands of acres of State Forest, you will be in nature's paradise. Secluded, yet only 10 minutes from the quaint town of Oregon. Your stay at the cabin includes 60 acres of private land (+2000 state forest), river frontage, huge yard full of hammocks, firepit, BBQ area and a legit settler's cabin -rustic yet well appointed. 1-night stays are possible depending on calendar. Aug 30 - Sept 3 is priced for 4 people.
    "Rustic Charm" is an understatement on both accounts. Native Americans lived here until the 1830's, enjoying its protected woodlands and excellent fishing. The land was deeded to an early settler in 1855, and the cabin was built in 1907. Although updated with electricity, hot water and a kitchen, it remains rustic. It may be a great place to escape the hustle and bustle but there's no escaping nature here. Well suited for hiking, boating, barbecuing, swinging in hammocks, campfires and porch sitting. There's one bedroom, loft, a large common area, kitchen and bathroom. The bedroom has a full bed, the livingroom has 2 queen beds including the sofa bed, 2 day beds and a loft with 4 additional mattresses. Several hammocks are set up outside as well. Large lawn under the oak trees is ideal for pitching tents if you have a large group. There are several tents and sleeping mats you're welcome to use stored under the window beds.
    This is one of the most tranquil and remote locations you can imagine, bordering Lowden-Miller State Forest and a beautiful stretch of the Rock River. It's at the end of a windy road through the woods yet has electricity and pristine drinking water from an artesian well. Light traffic (Rt 2) can be heard across the river but it's muttled by the constant symphony of songbirds. A tallgrass prairie and wild bison preserve (Nachusa Grasslands) is 4 miles away and Oregon, Dixon and Franklin Grove are neat little historic towns with shopping, dining and a bit of nightlife. La Vigna is a sensational little Italian restaurant just down the road towards Oregon. Check out https://www.visitnorthwestillinois.com/ for a local events calendar.
  • What a beautiful place! Better than described. Private, serene, and lovely. I’d recommend this to anyone who appreciates nature and tranquility. Cabin had everything we needed and we were comfy and cozy on a chilly autumn evening.

    Carol2019-10-28T00:00:00Z
  • Tim’s description of the cabin was accurate and it was perfect for our guys weekends. Great location and just a quick drive to some state parks for hiking. Loved the outdoor space with the fire pit and view of the river. My friends were even able to catch a bass and catfish fishing from the landing. We will be looking to rebook for a future weekend.

    Timothy2019-10-20T00:00:00Z
  • Authentic well equipped cabin experience with awesome river views and access. Rustic and wonderful!

    Paul2019-10-09T00:00:00Z

    Marlina2019-09-23T00:00:00Z
  • The goose island cabin was a truly unique & much needed experience. Lots of discoveries to be made inside and relaxing to do outside! Tim, thanks for the honey and sharing your garlic growing knowledge with me. Looking forward to visiting again!!!! Arachnophobes, this might not be your thing;) Nature lovers enjoy!

    Lindsay2019-09-19T00:00:00Z
  • This place is very special, especially, I imagine, for city people like me. It’s a magical place where time almost stands still, where one remembers what breathing is supposed to feel like. For anyone who spent any part of their childhood in a cabin/cottage in the woods by a body of water, the sweet smells, sights, and sounds will conjure up intense feelings of nostalgia. And the host Tim Benedict is the most hospitable person you’re likely to meet (and an extraordinary raconteur and all-around great guy). Highly, highly recommended.

    Frank2019-09-09T00:00:00Z
  • This cabin is really special and Tim is an exceptional host. We wanted a weekend for the kids to be outside and to relax. It was that and much more. We enjoyed the rustic nature and rich history of this cabin, plus used all the fun amenities in the river -- fishing rods, canoes, fire pits, and hammocks ect. There was not a dull moment and we were outside the entire weekend. Pure magic. Tim even went as far as to have his local honey waiting as an arrival gift AND he took us to a local Bison Preserve. My kids were in heaven and so were we. Thanks, Tim!

    Cabin is located with a view of the peaceful Rock River. Very relaxing & cozy, perfect for a calm getaway. Minutes from Castle Rock State Park. Enjoy canoeing, fishing, & hiking trails. Reconnect with nature, enjoy board games, barbecuing, & outdoor activities. Enjoy exploring the quaint small towns, antiquing, & local restaurants. Go from city life to country, just “90” minutes from Chicago. Keep in mind, the cabin does not have WiFi. Tv channels are limited. This is a place to relax & unwind!
  • Leslie's cabin is the sort of place that's a pleasure to enjoy. We came out of a cold winter night into the most amazingly warm space, with all sorts of amenities and special touches to make us feel at home. Clean, well-appointed, with all the most important things anticipated before we opened the door. The cabin far enough away from everything (towns, traffic, neighbors) to give you space, yet close enough to various diversions (hiking, restaurants) in case you get tired of the quiet. Looking forward to visiting again in the future!

    Alessandro2020-01-26T00:00:00Z
  • Adorable little cabin. Perfect for couples. Very relaxing and peaceful. Television and internet are a bit spotty. So many great little thoughtful extras. Snacks and beverages were left for us along with a lovely note and gift. I would definitely recommend this to anyone looking to get away.

    Dominique2020-01-20T00:00:00Z

We loved the overall aesthetic of the cabin, it wad super cozy. The location is beautiful with a bonus great view of the night sky. Leslie and Rose offered a lot of local tips on places to eat and experience while we stayed on Oregon. We are so grateful for our stay and can't wait to come back in the future!

    This home is steps to the Mississippi River, park your boat on the beach. Room for an air mattress. Excellent fishing off the property. Breath taking views, a bit of Heaven. The bike trail is one-half block away plus Ice fishing in Spring Lake, Chestnut Mountain has a zip line, alpine slide, downhill . Boat launch 1 mile, restaurant is walk able distance. Golf 4 miles, Savanna 8 mi, Thomson 4 mi, Fulton 8 mi, Clinton IA 10 miles. Both interior and exterior multiple steps into the home.
    The space is an open floor plan. It was once an earth home with a mowed roof. As a result, you feel like you are directly on the river just looking out the window. The entire front of the home is floor to ceiling glass (with blinds). You enter through the garage.
    The neighborhood is very friendly. Ask any neighbor for directions or suggestions for dinner, fishing or otherwise. You will have privacy. The Mississippi Pool 13 is a wildlife refuge. It is easily located on map as the widest point shore to shore, 5 miles. Take a trip to a lock and dam to witness lock traffic and bird watch. The first weekend of January is Eagle watch weekend with lots of activities outside. Anytime the back waters freeze you will see Eagles from the home and as many as hundreds at the lock and dam. Of course, ice fishing is prime. There are local guide books in the home.
  • Great place with awesome views, very friendly owner. Good value for the money, would definitely stay again.

    Dominika2020-03-08T00:00:00Z

    Andrew2020-03-01T00:00:00Z

    Korey2020-02-16T00:00:00Z

    Michele2020-01-26T00:00:00Z
  • Great view of the river from the living space of the home. We had an eagle perch in the big tree not 30 feet from us one morning, and spotted another feeding on river ice not far away. Super cold and windy during our stay (sub zero and 20 mph winds right off the river), but the house stayed warm. Would stay again.

  • Enjoy the cabin so much this is our second stay.

    Ann2019-12-08T00:00:00Z
  • This was our second stay in Thomson this year. We love the accommodations and the towns around there. We have stayed here both times and enjoy the atmosphere so much. The house is clean, quiet and love that it is on the river.

    Mickey2019-12-01T00:00:00Z
  • This was a great space. It had all the feel of home. Quite and relaxing. If you are a yoga fan the living room is a perfect spot with the windows facing the water. Perfect for a weekend getaway or even a longer stay.

  • Mary’s place was cute and cozy for the perfect low key New Year’s Eve. The place itself was very clean, and we loved having the state park out back to play with our dog. We went to both local bars and the people were very friendly. We’d love to come back in the summer.

    Felicia2020-01-01T00:00:00Z

    Lil House On The Prairie (LHOTP) is aptly named because it’s located on the edge of Nachusa Grassland’s 1,000 acre south Bison pasture. The 100+ herd of free ranging Bison can often be viewed right along the boundary fence to the west! This recently remodeled two bedroom cottage can sleep six with two queen size beds and with a pull out sofa bed. LHOTP offers a quiet, convenient, and comfortable place to base your adventures from. Behaved dogs & responsible owners welcome!
    LHOTP can best be described as a full featured country cottage. It features two bedrooms, an open common area with 10 ft ceilings that includes the kitchen with large island, a bath with shower (no tub), and over 2 acres of open area for a variety of outdoor recreational activities. The kitchen has a pantry closet with some basic supplies like waffle mix for the waffle maker, coffee and filters, coffee creamer, sugar, real maple syrup, salt, and pepper. Small appliances include waffle maker, coffee maker, toaster, hand mixer, crock pot, and micro wave. Larger appliances include smooth top electric range, dish washer, side by side refrigerator, and stacked apartment sized washer and dryer. The upper cupboards hold plates, bowls, glasses, and cups ... service for eight ... and more in island cabinets if needed (see photos). Also in the island cabinets is a complete set of cook ware (see photos). Silverware is in a drawer by the refrigerator, sharp knives next to that drawer, and cooking utensils are on the counter by the stove. The bathroom has a motion sensitive switch for the wall light by the shower and a humidistat to activate the exhaust fan. Towels and wash clothes are supplied along with soap, shampoo, and conditioner. A secretary just inside the entrance holds a variety of games, decks of cards, and visitor guides to the local area. The house features a wood burning stove that is not currently functional but our plan is to have it working soon.

The 100+ herd of free ranging Bison can often be viewed right along the boundary fence to the west! Nachusa Grasslands is a prairie restoration project sponsored by The Nature Conservancy. They now have invested in over 4000 acres in the immediate neighborhood and the restoration goals are to return it to its original condition in 1835 before the white man settled the area. they have constructed a visitors center less than a mile up the road that gives wonderful information about their vision and the bison herd. Bison, Whitetail deer, and turkeys are routinely seen just outside the door of this property ..... or through any window! Franklin Creek State Park is just 1 mile to the south, Lowden Miller State Forest is just 5 miles to the north, Lowden State Park (Chief Blackhawk statue) is less than 10 miles to the north, Castle rock State Park is on the other side of the rock River about 15 miles away, and White Pines State Park with an excellent restaurant is less than 20 miles to the northwest. The Lincoln Highway Association National Headquarters is located just 4 miles away across the street from our wonderful local cafe!
  • Earl was a great host to say the least! Everything we could have needed was provided, much more than the basics. The view was wonderful, especially when the bison where out! The evenings where great with a wonderful wood stove going. Could not have asked for more and we are looking forward to a return trip!

    Taylor2020-02-22T00:00:00Z
  • If you’re looking for a clean comfortable country stay, this place is great! My dogo has so much fun running around on the property. With a winter stay, the wood burning stove was wonderful! The Nachusa Grasslands at your back door. I’ll definitely be back!

    Laura2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • Home was spacious, clean and comfortable. Loved the well appointed kitchen. We started the day cooking breakfast with the eggs and English muffins and coffee provided. Watching the bison out the window while eating was a treat. Earl gave us a list of restaurants for the rest of our meals. The bed was comfortable.

    Therese2020-01-05T00:00:00Z
  • I stayed at Earl's house and it was an amazing experience, he went above and beyond to make us feel welcome. I'm planning on coming back next year.

    Jalaine2019-06-30T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing views, GREAT hospitality. Earl is the best! My parents stayed there after a tragedy took their home and they had to relocate to the Midwest. Earl and his Prairie Home gave them a peaceful place to land and while they settled in and waited for their new home to close. We will always treasure the time they spent on the Prairie. ❤️❤️❤️

    This vintage bungalow is bright and welcoming. Four bedrooms (great beds!), two baths, a spacious living area, and a fully-equipped kitchen provide a sense of home and comfort for your family and friends. Cable TV and Wi-Fi are supplied. The screened-in front porch is a pleasant space to relax, and the back yard fire pit invites everyone to gather for memorable evenings. Guests often see wildlife on the large, park-like property. Conveniently near town and many local recreational activities.
    You’re sure to note both the pride Dixon takes in its history and its contemporary energy. The King family has had its own place in Dixon history ever since the house and farm were given to the owner’s grandparents as a wedding gift in 1915. And as a guest in the homestead, you’ll contribute to its ongoing vitality. We know you’ll enjoy your stay, and we hope you’ll want to return often.
    The Rock River is the centerpiece of Dixon, the hub of its history and a major attraction for visitors. The city’s downtown district is within walking distance of the house and has the distinction of being listed on the National Historic Register because of its architecture. You can eat out, shop and, if your timing is right, enjoy one of several annual city festivals. The many options for outdoor recreation include boating, canoeing, kayaking, and water skiing on the river, or hiking, biking, horseback riding, and jogging on park trails. Lowell Park (200 acres) offers scenic drives, trails, a dedicated natural area and nature center, picnic shelters, playgrounds, and boat access. Meadows Park is a 567-acre open space along the Rock River that includes hiking trails and sports fields. Also worth your time and attention are three nearby state parks: Lowden State Park, Castle Rock State Park, and White Pines Forest State Park.
  • I grew up visiting this town and loved staying here!

    Sarah2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • We loved our stay and how relaxing it was for our family to congregate to celebrate my mom 80th birthday. Played games and enjoyed the wooded yard even though it was cold out.

    Jody2019-11-24T00:00:00Z
  • Great place for our guys to sleep for the week. Thanks again

    Nate2019-09-06T00:00:00Z

    Ted2019-08-04T00:00:00Z
  • This was a great spot to gather with it family. Plenty of space indoor and out and for 9 people and 2 dogs. We were here over a 90+ degree weekend and the AC worked great and kept us all cool. The house also had bug spray citronella candles and sunscreen we used and were able to spend a lot of time in the backyard as well!

    Kelly2019-07-21T00:00:00Z
  • We loved the privacy yet we were close to downtown. The house was more than enough room for 6 of us. We loved all the wildlife. We saw turkey and deer every day that we were there. The house features everything we needed. There is also a history of the property and info on the area. We had a wonderful time!

    Christine2019-07-19T00:00:00Z
  • Very secluded property but close to everything. We had a nice fire out back. We enjoyed nearby Lowell Park and downtown Dixon.

    John2019-07-01T00:00:00Z
  • This place was wonderful! This farmhouse has all the amenities you need along with the feel of stepping back in time. Get ready to wake up to deer, turkeys and other animals....your own private wildlife reserve. It is close to everything in town, but you feel like you are all alone.

    Escape your busy life and unwind at Grandma's home of hospitality in the quiet and quaint historic town of Dixon, IL! Fishing and boat enthusiasts can take a short 3-block stroll to behold the breathtaking views of the Rock River dam and waterfront. Located only 0.8 miles away is our adorable downtown where you can explore quality retail shops, a charming bookstore, bakeries, a fine art gallery, wine shop, multiple fine dining restaurants and Heritage Crossing on the Riverfront.
    Enjoy over 2,018 sq ft of living space with a very large screened in sitting porch. (it's a favorite place for everyone to hang out and visit when family is home) Lower level has large rooms with high ceilings and beautiful woodwork. Spacious and open which makes it perfect for hosting an event. Upstairs, two of the three bedrooms have had top to bottom make overs. (the 3rd will be finished soon) New carpet, paint, mattresses, bedding, linens, etcetera. It's a top priority of mine that my guests have bedrooms with beds so comfortable they don't want to get up in the morning! (I allow late check out for that very reason) The house has cable television with Netflix on lower level, smart television with Netflix and Amazon Prime in bedroom and I will be hooking up dvd players as well since there is a library of movies in the book case downstairs. A piano is in the home as well as games, cards, puzzles, videos and books. Grandmas house is homey, comfortable and peaceful. What makes Grandmas even more special is the location. Literally walking distance to everything. Ten minute walk south and your downtown at the riverfront where there are excellent restaurants and pubs or ten minute walk north and you're on the Lowell Parkway Path. The path is beautiful and you can walk all the way to Lowell Park or veer off and take another path down to the meadows and the river. Three to five miles of paths. Great for biking and hiking. Grandma's house is within three blocks of a grocery store, city park, pharmacy, dollar store, gas station and the YMCA. It's central to just about everything in town.
    The house is located in a quiet, friendly, residential neighborhood within walking distance to downtown restaurants, bars as well as the riverfront. Within three blocks of a grocery store, drug store, city park and a short walk to Dixons bike and hiking path which leads to beautiful Lowell Park.
  • Great place to stay. Within walking distance to everything!

    Judy2019-12-29T00:00:00Z
  • It is like your home but in another town. It is full of history, neat little touches, amenities you would not think of, and comfort in every room. Judi is a host of hosts and so easy to work with. You won't consider a hotel in Dixon ever again. Grandma's House!

    Krista2019-11-11T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed at Grandma’s House for 4 days. It was myself and 3 sisters. The house is well appointed and had everything we needed. Judith supplied us with some groceries which was very thoughtful. I also liked how close it was to downtown Dixon. We would definitely stay there again. Thanks Judith for the wonderful stay.

    Olivia2019-10-27T00:00:00Z

    Joe2019-09-30T00:00:00Z
  • A lovely traditional home to gather and celebrate with family and friends. Judith is proactive in communicating and helping to prepare for a warm, comfortable welcome. We are repeat guests and will certainly return.

    Susan2019-09-15T00:00:00Z
  • My family and I felt so at home at Grandma’s house... we wanted a comfortable stay for two families coming together from out of town. The pictures are exactly as the house is... beautifully appointed bedrooms, screened-in front porch, well-stocked linens, generous food staples, homey atmosphere! I could go on and on! We will definitely stay here again in the future!

  • Rebecca was incredibly communicative and was so so nice offering for us to make a minor adjustment to our reservation so our stay could be the best possible. THE BEDS. ARE SO INCREDIBLY COMFORTABLE. WOW. it is beautiful and comfortable, HIGHLY recommend for group getaways!!! Super comfy w 5 of us and could EASILY hold a couple more. We plan on coming back in the summer!

  • I highly recommend this beautiful cabin if you are looking for a unique space for a fun stay! We had such a wonderful girls' weekend to celebrate my daughter's upcoming wedding! Our group of 9 had plenty of room and the sleeping arrangements were very comfortable. We made s'mores by the campfire and had such a fun time! Everything was clean, cozy and helped make our weekend perfect!

  • We stayed at two of three cabins on this property and had a lovely weekend. We particularly enjoyed the outside areas. We had campfires every night and there was enough space in the yard to set up both badminton and a beanbag game.

  • Absolutely a beautiful cabin! A +class host , thank you Rebecca! We truly had a memorable stay. Theresa

    Use our quiet location with one of the only unobstructed views of the Mississippi River as you explore the surrounding areas. With Poopy's Pub only 5 miles away and charming Galena, IL a quick 35 miles north, you'll be able to satisfy your weekend getaway experience! If your taste is more to stay in, the local pub and food spot is less than a 5 minute walk across the communal lawn :) PETS WELCOME!
    Two large bedrooms with a king beds (one with an additional twin bed) as well as a full futon and bunked twin in the additional room (with full washer and dryer). The lower level has another bathroom and full-sized bed for use with parties of five (5) guests or more. The west-facing main level window makes for inspiring breakfast and full color evenings!
    The immediate neighborhood is quiet and friendly. We typically take walks with our dog when visiting the area and rarely encounter more than ten cars on the route. There is a nice pub and grill located directly to the east of our property within 5 minutes walking distance.
  • Great price with a beautiful view!

  • Josh & Katies place right off the Mississippi River was more than we expected. The pictures do not do this place justice. The view from the dining room is beautiful, and the location is perfect. The place was spotless, and a lot larger than anticipated. The included oven, microwave and fridge made staying here much more affordable to be able to cook homemade meals. However, the local restaurants and pubs provided excellent food/drinks as well. I will definitely be staying here again closer to the summertime to enjoy the river. I'm so happy we found this place, I cannot recommend enough!

    Derek2020-01-04T00:00:00Z
  • Definitely worth a visit! Tucked away, with an incredible view of the Mississippi. Beds were comfy and the master was so spacious! Josh and Katie were very responsive.

    Regan2019-12-21T00:00:00Z
  • Very nice 👍. Spacious, clean and nice view

    Ben2019-11-07T00:00:00Z

    Ben2019-10-24T00:00:00Z
  • We had a wonderful weekend experience at Josh and Katie's. They were very responsive to any questions we had. The place was extremely clean and the view was very scenic. We loved the classy mastersuite. It was a great place at a reasonable expense.

    This modern cabin style home is a spacious 3 story, 3 bdrm, 3 bath & loft. Perfect family & friends getaway. IDNR 700 ac Franklin Creek State Natural Area surrounds the property. Out the backdoor is hiking, trail running, birding, hunting, fishing, mushrooms, XC skiing, photography & equestrian activities. Historic Franklin Creek Grist Mill, 1/2 mile. TNC's 3,000 acre Nachusa Grasslands is a restored natural Illinois prairie with 70+ American Bison just 2 miles away. Fine dining nearby. Relax!
    A very scenic and relaxing hide-away at the north edge of the great Illinois prairie as Illinois' geography begins it's transition into a more rolling & woods and rivers topography.
    The Cabin is adjacent to Franklin Creek State Natural Area. A State Natural Area is an IDNR owned park but differs from a State Park in that the Natural Area is left in more of a natural state and maintain as such. Good for exploring, enjoying, reviving ones need for natural settings. The Franklin Creek flows through the heart of this park and creates the unique beauty. The rebuilt grist mill is a wonderful example of a mid 1800 water powered mill. The Nature Conservancy's 3000 acre Nachusa Grasslands borders the northern edge of FCSNA.
  • We’ve stayed at the Franklin Grove cabin at least seven times now. It’s convenient to all local destinations and yet secluded and quiet. We enjoy each stay.

    Jerry2019-12-27T00:00:00Z
  • We enjoyed the privacy and outdoor fireplace!

    Christine2019-10-13T00:00:00Z
  • I highly recommend Dina's cabin. The six of us stayed there and thought it was the perfect space for us. The kitchen was well-equipped, the living room comfy for us to hang out, the bedrooms and bathrooms are spacious. Everything was very clean, which I always appreciate. The location was perfect for what we had planned that weekend. Too bad it rained all weekend so we didn't get to enjoy the beautiful deck and outdoor fireplace in the back -- hope to do that when we return in the future!

    Gaik Ping2019-09-22T00:00:00Z
  • The cabin was great! It is right on the park, surrounded by trees. It was clean and very spacious. It is a perfect get away for a family.

  • We had an excellent stay. She replied within minutes which is awesome! The space was so clean and felt just like home! The kitchen was stocked with everything you need to cook and the outdoor fireplace was the cherry on top! Also it is a 2 minute walk to our favorite park, Franklin creek. Our son enjoyed the trails and the buffalo at the grasslands. It was more than we expected.
