  • Loved this place and would stay again. The proximity to town was great. We enjoyed sitting on the porch and listening to the roosters and woodpeckers. (Couldn’t heard them from inside🤗.). Being unplugged for a weekend was great.

  • We really enjoyed our stay at this adorable home! The location is very quiet yet still close to the downtown shopping and restaurants. We appreciated the holiday decor, the space was spotless, and the host obviously takes great care of the space. We hope to be back soon!

  • We loved this little house for a wintry weekend at Starved Rock. It's the perfect location for wandering by foot into Utica for food, drink, shopping, and friendly conversation, for strolling up the canal path, or for a quick drive into any of the parks. We cooked meals in the large, well-stocked kitchen, read and played games by the ambiance of the space heater/faux fireplace (so sweet!), slept wonderfully (it's quiet!), and sat on the porch in the sun to admire the gorgeous sycamores and maples and their frequent bird visitors. There are neighbors next door, but it felt very quaint and quiet and was a perfect city getaway.

    Meghann2020-02-02T00:00:00Z
  • This was a really nice, cozy place within walking distance to Utica and minutes from Starved Rock. It was nice to have a full kitchen, and the electric fireplace was awesome. I left wanting to come back!

    Kristi2020-01-26T00:00:00Z
  • Aron's farmhouse was an amazing stay. A quaint house on the outskirts of town. A short walk from Utica's charming main strip. Beautiful views of the night sky unobstructed by light pollution. The warm touches truly made us feel like we were at a home away from home. We loved walking to Lodi's for drinks in the evening and Nonie's for a delicious breakfast and homemade pastries. It was a peaceful getaway from city life. We loved our stay and hope to come back soon!

    Angela2020-01-19T00:00:00Z
  • What a cozy, charming home! Perfect for a weekend getaway to explore local state parks like Starved Rocks. Well supplied amenities, convenient location yet also secluded, and beautiful.

    Joy2020-01-12T00:00:00Z
  • We love the location, right on the I&M canal; a short walk to Utica, just a couple miles from Starved Rock. For a small house, the kitchen and dining room are great. We cooked dinner and breakfast and found everything we needed. We will stay here again, for sure.

    Amy2020-01-05T00:00:00Z
  • This is a very special home and we really enjoyed our stay here! Very thoughtful holiday touches were around the house that made it even more homelike. I can see where there may be a little confusion getting to the house as there is a Do Not Enter sign on Towpath Rd, but it is okay to go down that road if you are supposed to be there, lol! Great communication - highly recommend this place!

    Chad2020-03-14T00:00:00Z
  • I've come to Starved Rock so many times and finally decided it's time we spend the night versus a long drive back home. Kelly's space was perfect. Inside was so clean and most importantly it felt nice with good energy. The block has various delicious restaurants and bars. The park was a few minutes away via car. And lastly Kelly was such a kind spirit! It's folks like her that make the Airbnb concept special. She had blankets and left some water, all sweet touches. We will be back again!

    Michael2020-03-12T00:00:00Z
  • The Mill Street Suite is clean, elegant, and all around a wonderful place to stay in this quaint little town. I would highly recommend this area and suite as a getaway for anyone. We hiked at Starved Rock, which was 5 mins away, and enjoyed the August Hill wine bar. 5/5 🧡

    Mary2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • Great location, stylish space, super clean, and nice amenities.

    Amanda2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • This is a fabulous Airbnb, and a GREAT location in this cute little town. We stayed here to connect with friends and hike at Starved Rock which is about 5 minutes away. Its located right above a pub, and nearby several other nightlife choices, so I was a little concerned about the Friday night noise, but the space is so well sound insulated - we didn’t hear a peep. It has a long stairway up to the suite, which might be a concern for some, but everything else about it makes up for the brief climb upstairs. Kelly has done a masterful job of setting up and decorating this space with homey touches. Love the fireplace! Just flip a switch. Great water pressure, large shower/whirlpool tub, huge bathroom! Keurig coffee-maker, two refrigerators! Super comfy and warm bed. Wouldn’t change a thing! We hope to visit here again!

    John2020-02-29T00:00:00Z
  • Great space in a great location, we would definitely stay again.

  • Our group had such a lovely stay here. The house was very stylish, super clean, and adorable. Elaine is so sweet and went the extra mile to make sure we had everything we needed for our stay. If you are wondering where to stay in the Starved Rock area, this is your place! We will very likely be back!

    Anna2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • Great place to stay a lot to do in the area.

    Jacob2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • We loved this house and location. We wanted to explore Starved Rock park and this location was close to that park. We also liked exploring our favorite breakfast place (Nonie's) in North Utica, Starved Rock, Peru and LaSalle. The house is compact, very clean, instructions easy to understand.. We would love to return to this location in summer/fall.

    Linda2020-01-31T00:00:00Z
  • Nice warm and cozy home! Would recommend!

    Anne2020-01-05T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed at Elaine's place for 2 nights with a party of 7 (4 adults and 3 kids - 2,4,5). The drive from the house to Starved Rock and Mattheison was easy and scenic. Around 10 minutes each. The house is also close to some cute shops on 1st street. The house itself was clean and orderly. Elaine did an EXCELLENT job of communication things like check-in and check-out process, where items like towels and extra bedding could be found, and suggesting good local restaurants/things to do. We enjoyed having games, coloring items, and toys available for the kids. There was also a pack and play and other kid's items available for use. The only thing I'd suggest is that you bring your own plastic kids plates/cups if you think your little ones can't handle glass yet. There was a lot of (very pretty) glassware to use! Otherwise, restful and fun stay. Thanks Elaine!

    Hailey2020-01-01T00:00:00Z

  • This place is great- spacious, clean, and functional for a single family, two (like we had), or hosting a group of 15-20 (which we did one afternoon). Augustas is a responsive and caring host, and went above & beyond to make sure we were taken care of. I loved the value received for this place, and will try to stay here again the next time I am in the area.

It was so cozy and clean and nicely decorated. It was all really beyond our expectations. They had everything we needed, plus more, which made it so easy to just sit back and relax and have fun. It was the perfect setting for our game nights and enjoying each other's company. Mary was also very communicative and got back to us quickly on any questions or requests we had.

  • My family had an AMAZING time at this cabin. Spacious and clean. So much room for my four grandkids to play. We absolutely loved sitting outside on the back deck and listening to nature. We went to the water park on the resort, but the price of $40 per person for the few amenities offered was quite expensive. Lori was great and hope to be back in the future!

    Mary2019-07-07T00:00:00Z
  • Lori was an amazing host! Contacted us the day of to provide detailed directions to the cabin. She called to check on us the night we got there to make sure everything was fine. Also, told us local places around town to check out. She was very friendly, easy to communicate with and the place was very clean and orderly. We would definitely recommend this cabin to anyone looking to stay in the Starved Rock area. The host was great, the cabin was great to stay in and it's in very close proximity to Starved Rock.

  • I absolutely recommend this cabin! Douglass is a great host. He’s very helpful and understanding. The place is great, it’s clean and comfortable. The cabin is surrounded with many fun activities to do. My family and I had a great time! Thank you Douglass! We’ll definitely stay there again :)

    Nora2019-09-08T00:00:00Z
  • Completely worth every penny. It’s so close to everything (if you have a car, and you should have a car anyway). It’s so clean, spacious and inviting. My wife and I had a wonderful stay. The communication from the host was excellent and though we had a hard time locating the place, his instructions were super clear and helped us figure it out. Thank you Doug!

    Jerardo2019-08-12T00:00:00Z
  • This is a very spacious place with a large living area and good kitchen facilities. The light-wood construction visible in the pictures is well-done. Very convenient to nearby state parks and Utica, but also fairly close to Peru and Ottawa for any amenities (large grocery store, restaurants, mall with movie theater, etc.) you might want. Very clean. A host who communicates well and is eager for guests to have a satisfying stay.

    John2019-07-16T00:00:00Z
  • I liked the flexible booking process with him and the easy check-in and check-out process he had. Clean cabin in a great location. I would have liked a bigger TV but we actually did not even have time to watch it. We rented the whole cabin out from Douglas. He was a great host and quickly replied to any questions throughout the process.

  • Douglas’s place was beautiful and this was the perfect place to stay for our friend’s wedding at Starved Rock State Park! We stayed with a group, and everyone was comfortable and had their own place to sleep. We enjoyed the common areas and had plenty of space. Douglas was very communicative and gave us flawless directions since we did not get to meet in person.

  • Very nice place and spotty clean. We enjoyed the furniture and the cabin look. The location was perfect. Starved Rock's main parking lot and entrance were flooded so parking for visitor to the trails were a nightmare but not for us. We parked at the cabin's resort parking and walked across Rt.178 to the trail head for St.Louis canyon. It was only 10 minute away and we didn't have to go thru the hassle at the state park. Will definitely come back.

  • My family and I had an amazing weekend at the cabin. We were together to celebrate my Mom’s 70th birthday. The cabin was the perfect setting. Myself, my parents, my sister, her husband and their 9 month old baby stayed both nights. My brother, his wife and their daughters age 20, 3 & 2 joined us on Saturday. The kitchen was perfect to prepare meals in. We had meals and fun game nights at the large table. We ended our evenings with movies by logging into my Netflix and Amazon Prime accounts. We even got to entertain the littlest 3 kids by pulling them around in a sled we brought around the property and got some beautiful winter family photos with the lake as the backdrop. The cabin had plenty of space for sleeping and entertaining and we would definitely love to come back for another stay!
