Rates & Reservations

We Look Forward to Seeing You!

Please review our lodging options and rates. When you find an option that’s right for you, you may make a reservation by clicking on “Reserve Today” or by calling us at 815-442-8453. I am only in the office weekdays from 9 AM – 4 PM so be sure to leave a message outside of those time frames and I will be sure to get back to you.

Off season rates are from December 1st – March 31st, prime season rates are from April 1st – November 30th.

Due to the nature of our property and the type of getaway we are offering our guests, we do not do prom rentals or rent to spring break groups. If you are a party of friends looking for a getaway, we do not rent to groups of friends under the age of 28. That does not mean that 1 person in your group needs to be 28. We do not make exceptions to this rule so please do not bother to inquire.

* Weeknight stays in Grandma’s Cabin require a two-night minimum visit. All Sunday night stays are now a 2-night minimum also and many times you will see multiple night minimums, especially on the family cabins during the summer months or busy times. Although we allow single night rentals during the week we do not want someone leaving single nights open on certain cabins. This is hard for us to acknowledge with our booking engine so please inquire with us if it appears you are leaving a single night open.

Other Terms and Conditions

Prices do not include tax (6% state and 5% county). Rates are subject to change without notice. Our cabin pricing is currently at a flat rate, not charged per person. Please verify your reservation information. You are responsible for dates booked on-line. Special requests and cabin location preferences will be noted but not guaranteed.

Cancellation Policy: Cancellations made more than 21 days prior to arrival will result in a refund of deposit minus a $25.00 administrative fee. Cancellations made within the 21 day non-cancellation periods will result in the forfeiture of the total amount of the reservation regardless of reason. *Note: Grandma’s cabin has a 90 day cancellation policy. We still take final payment on Grandma’s cabin 21 days before arrival but if you are cancelling with the 90 day arrival window on Grandma’s cabin, remaining due would be taken at that time and refund will only be given if we are able to refill the reservation. If reserving for a wedding, reunion or some other common event, there is a 90 day cancellation policy with the same conditions imposed for all cabins in the group.

Guarantee Policy: All reservations require a 50% deposit at the time the reservation is made. The remaining 50% will automatically be billed to the credit card on file at the time of cancellation cutoff. * Note: If reserving within the cancellation period, the full amount is due at the time of booking. Kishauwau’s Starved Rock Area Cabins guarantees availability of cabin or cabins reserved; guest guarantees payment for all dates reserved. Sorry, no refunds for early departure.

If you will be joining us for the weekend, please plan to enjoy your entire Saturday with us. We cannot accommodate check in or out on Saturday — if the system is giving you an error message it is either because there is no availability or you are attempting to arrive or depart on a Saturday.

Privacy Policy for Credit Card Processing

Even if the system allows you to book it you will be contacted by us to change your dates. Always feel free to contact me in our off season (Dec. – May) as I might make an exception. Usually not until right before the weekend though.

Check-in begins at 4PM. Check out time is always 11:00 AM. We are running a faceless check in process at Kishauwau Cabins at this time. You will receive the details of this process in your Final Payment e-mail. Please feel free to call and ask about it.
We are happy to send the details at any time.

Dog-Friendly Cabins

Please let us know that you have read these policies and that you are okay with abiding by them after booking. Only Mother-In-Law, Commanche, Winnebago & Zonta cabins are dog friendly. A $15.00 plus tax, per night, per dog fee applies and it is a firm 2 dog maximum per cabin. No major barkers or dogs with behavioral issues are allowed and all dogs must be up on their shots. Dogs must be leashed and tended to at all times outside. We ask that dogs not be on any furniture or on/in the beds please. We also ask that you clean up after them while you are here. Dogs must be crated if left alone in the cabin and at night time. Any damages to Kishauwau’s Starved Rock Area Cabins or property or mishaps with your dog during your stay is the responsibility of the owner and you will be charged as we see fit. We welcome dogs and want to continue to do so but must have these policies followed to do so.

Please read our full Rental Policy and Terms and Conditions for more information. We look forward to seeing you!
