My Airbnb is a second floor apartment in a pre-Civil War Italianate home in Ottawa's east side historic district. Within walking distance of downtown shopping and dining including an award winning microbrewery. The property is adjacent to the Fox River and I&M Canal path offering fishing and outdoor recreation.
Ottawa's East Side historic district, located near the Illinois and the Fox Rivers, remains one of the city' s most diverse collections of high-style architecture, with a number of significant Greek Revival , Italianate, Queen Anne residences from the 19th century, and Prairie, Craftsman, and Revival-style houses from the early 20th century. The East Side is a quiet, walkable neighborhood with easy access to downtown shopping and dining; parks and rivers; and self guided tours of architecture within the district.

  • Jody was a very generous and friendly host. The unit was sparkling clean and well stocked for our family. We enjoyed all the personal touches throughout the home. The heat worked well on the cold and windy day. The location was great as it was near our extended family and walk-able to downtown. She had crayons and books for the kids. We look forward to returning as she progresses through restoring this house.

    Stephanie2019-11-29T00:00:00Z
  • Great location. Quiet and safe neighborhood. Kitchen includes everything you would need to make meals. Thoughtful touches with candies and delicious baked goods upon arrival. The living room was a great place to unwind after a day of hiking. The couch is so comfortable!

  • I really enjoyed staying at Yarosina's place. It's a simply wonderful little place. and had absolutely everything we needed. As a host, I appreciated her consideration and quick responsiveness also. It was very quiet, cozy, nicely decorated and comfortable. The Cable TV options are the best I've seen in any AirBnB setting, including On Demand Movies on several channels. The beds were extremely comfy. The river is in view, just across the street by the park. The kitchen is very well-supplied. Outlets are minimal, so it might be a good idea to bring an extension cord(s) for your electronic devices. All in all I enjoyed it and I would visit again.

  • This place won't disappoint you. It was cozy and comfortable. I would stay here again.

    Adam2020-04-20T00:00:00Z
  • Another perfect visit, this is our go-to place when we visit Ottawa. we could tell when we walked in that Yaroslina had taken even more care than usual to make the house spotlessly clean during the health crisis. We were there just as the social distancing was starting, but we were totally safe in the house with everything we needed to stay in and cook. Thank you gain Yaroslina, for all of your efforts.

    Kathleen2020-03-18T00:00:00Z
  • Excellent house for a quiet night or peaceful long stay. Location is very close to downtown eateries and plenty of shops! The house itself is an older built house but inside is immaculate! Very well kept and super clean! Highly recommend for its excellent value!

    Gabriel2020-03-11T00:00:00Z

    Martha2020-02-28T00:00:00Z
  • Yaroslina was a great host. She accommodated for a storm coming in and to me that was an Above and Beyond. She has cable and comfy beds, perfect for a chill stay.

    Jared2020-01-12T00:00:00Z
  • A clean, expansive and quiet space! I’m a medical student who travels frequently for interviews and rotations so it is so important for me to have a peaceful place that feels homey while on the road. We only got to stay one night here between an interview and hiking at Starved Rock but the location was great and I wish we could’ve stayed longer. Extra tip, try Corner 230 for dinner! Super reasonable prices and amazing food.

    Lauren2020-01-10T00:00:00Z

The coffee maker and k cups provided were an added bonus to this coffee lover!! 😀 It was so thoughtful of Suzie to have KCups available to her guests. The town of Ottawa has a lot of great restaurants and shops and is very close to Starved Rock State Park. We will definitely visit again.

    Jennifer2020-03-15T00:00:00Z
  • We have stayed in many Airbnb homes and this has by far been the best for the price. The home was decent sized (perfect for our family of 4), sparkling clean and most importantly very cozy! What we enjoyed most were the comfortable beds, nice linens and plenty of extra pillows. :o) We will definitely be back!

    Jennifer2020-03-13T00:00:00Z
  • To quote my girlfriend: "I wasn't sure what to expect because of the surrounding houses and the location, but everything inside was super clean and modern."

  • Karl is an outstanding host. I would recommend his home to anyone. He is respectful of your space, a good conversationalist, and he is quick to offer help should you need anything at all. I cannot give a high enough review.

    Jarrett2020-03-03T00:00:00Z
  • Karl's large, modern home in an upscale subdivision is beautiful and very clean. Karl is a great guy to talk with, and made me feel I was a good friend visiting, not just a paying guest. He's very interesting, warm and friendly, and great to talk with. It's not a bed and breakfast, but he even offered to make me breakfast anyway! I highly recommend his home.

    Bob2019-12-31T00:00:00Z
  • Karl is a great host and you will enjoy living here if you're looking for a relaxing weekend.

  • Karl’s home is magical! From its gorgeous vistas to surrounding topography of woods and a pond in the neighborhood , this is a gem of a place with an interesting & graciously accommodating host. His home is a treasure trove of artisan crafts he has hand created along with his beautifully-crafted , sun-drenched house. Thank you Karl, we hope you’ll welcome us again for a visit! From Karl’s it’s such a scenic drive to nearby Starved Rock State Park . Great get away close to the suburbs and Chicago!

    Pamela2019-11-03T00:00:00Z

    The Selah House is 10 miles from Starved Rock and close to family-friendly activities, restaurants and dining, and nightlife. You’ll love my place because of the coziness, the people, and the location. With 5600 sq. ft. of space, this location is particularly good for families (with kids) and big groups; reunions or corporate seminars. Off street parking available plus two garage spaces. Sorry - no pets! There is a %5 Hotel/Motel Tax that goes to the City of Ottawa that is added on to your cost.
    This home has 5600 sq. ft. available for you to use for whatever you need. Perfect for big groups or families!
    Located in the Ottawa Historic District there are many other Historic Homes in the area, perfect for a neighborhood walk or drive-around.
  • Attentive host and a great (big) house to stay in. Would definitely stay again.

    Ryan2020-02-28T00:00:00Z
  • The Selah house is fabulous! The house is much larger than anticipated and held all of our guests with room to spare. If you have a large occasion, this house will not disappoint.

    Anna Claire2019-12-15T00:00:00Z
  • We highly recommend Pat's home for any groups visiting Ottawa. The space was lovely and spotless! The bedrooms were good sized and cute, and the master bedroom and master bath were great!. I'm very picky about mattresses and I slept very, very well on the mattress in the master bedroom. (rest of the group liked their mattresses too.) The house has a great family room/ kitchen area that makes it possible for large families to have together time. I could not have asked for better accommodations or a better host and will absolutely be wanting to use this airbnb the next time we're all in Ottawa. Thanks, Pat!

    Jan2019-11-30T00:00:00Z
  • This house had a lot of space for our family of 6 and was in a great downtown location. We were in town for a wedding and were able to have a small group of family over to visit with plenty of room for everyone as well. Pat and her husband were quick to respond to any questions we had.

    William2019-09-11T00:00:00Z
  • We rented this house for a small memorial to celebrate my grandma, and it was absolutely perfect. There is a large area for hosting and the kitchen has been recently renovated which helped us prepare food for the get-together. The house was also located very close to downtown which made it prime for exploring on our free day. Pat was very responsive the entire stay and was eager to help. Very wonderful host!

    Paige2019-09-01T00:00:00Z
  • Very large and clean place very close to downtown Ottawa. The owners are responsive and close by to the home as well.

    My home was built in 1900 which adds more character with a nice southern wrap around porch, part is screened in with a table and chairs to keep bugs out. It has a cozy country charm surrounded by gardens on a double corner lot so more privacy in town than average. Off street parking and a shed with a lock is provided upon request for guests who want to bring mountain bikes to hit the trails. I only show up to greet and hand out keys and show you around, otherwise my home is yours for your stay!
    I am very laid back and trust that people will treat my home as theirs. It is a 420 and smoking friendly home but OUTDOORS only please! There are multiple ashtrays and privacy on the porches I ask that no cigarettes or remnants be left anywhere than the receptacles provided. I'd love to see everyone's fur babies but unfortunately I've had terrible luck with pets in the past so I have to ask no pets. The home is 100% not toddler friendly as well so I do ask that guests keep that in mind and pay extra attention and I have no liability if a child is injured on the premises. It is more of an adult getaway. The fire stove is available for use but I do not provide wood, sticks for starting are available behind the garage. There is also room to park a boat and trailers off street if you wanted to come down and experience the fabulous boating community also. The upstairs is closed off because we are remodeling, the downstairs has newly refinished 100 year old hardwood floors and primitive decor. We usually use the back door where there is a mat for shoes. I decided to put it on air bnb because when I travel I use it and have found some great places to stay at a cheaper rate than a hotel and I enjoyed the privacy and having the comfort of a home. It also allows me the flexibility to remodel and not have to put everything in storage! I'm hoping everyone has a great stay and any questions I'm here to respond!
    We are in the heart of the southside, a peaceful quiet neighborhood. The home is about 5 blocks from highway 71 which takes you to all the state parks, only a 10 minutes drive. Downtown ottawa is 5 minutes that boasts numerous antique shops, and many mom and pop boutiques. Downtown utica is about 15 minutes west which has many small shops, great places to eat, and a local favorite ice cream shop. The cajun connection is a 20 minute drive which has authentic lousiana cuisine, the owner physically goes and catches your meals himself!
  • I had a great stay at Aubrey’s place! I stayed here for 2 weeks and everything went without any major issues. Aubrey was always available and quick n friendly in her responses. Her place was comfortable and clean, even the microwave was clean like it was brand new! I can’t speak for the a/c here (due to the time of year I stayed), but the home was warm and toasty (and in February, that’s just what I was looking for), all the mechanicals were easy to use and worked as you’d expect without any problems, couches were comfy, and so was the mattress—probably better than the one I have at home. I would definitely stay here again! Thanks Aubrey!

  • Great spot if you happen to be in town for work at the Dresden (45 mins) or Lasalle power plants (15-20 mins).

    Duncan2019-11-08T00:00:00Z
  • Aubrey is a Great Host! Her place is nice, clean and comfortable. She replied quickly, and check in was easy!

    Ronald2019-10-25T00:00:00Z
  • Cute cottage a short distance from the park and very close to restaurants, grocery, etc. Aubrey was super accommodating.

    Jenny2019-09-02T00:00:00Z
  • Aubrey’s place was great! It was the perfect abode for my boyfriend and I to relax after hiking through starved rock. It was homey yet very put together and I would recommend for anyone to stay there!

    Absolutely no smoking on property! 5 minutes from I80 & Ottawa; 20 to Starved Rock area. A private, 800 sq.ft. walkout studio apartment; complete kitchen, full futon bed w/topper. If 2+ guests, the sofa converts to a queen sleeper w/2 mattresses! Basic tv & wifi, fireplace, laundry, shower w/seat & private patio area. NOT the Waldorf Astoria, but it's comfortable, quiet & what I call home with no sneaky cleaning fee. Weekly & monthly rates. Pet fee $5 per day per pet; grill usage $10 per stay.
    This house is located in rural peace on a state highway but far enough back that it is quiet. On 3 acres, there is also an outdoor gas grill, fenced in dog area and patio for relaxing as well as a private gazebo out back. You will have the entire finished basement to yourself with basic tv, full-completely furnished kitchen-I have some condiments but bring your own food, washer/dryer laundry unit, private bath that has a 48" shower with a seat. There is a large kitchen island for eating or working space and dozens of board games to keep you entertained. Dogs are allowed, please crate if you leave them unattended - crate can be provided if scheduled in advance.
    Route 66 raceway is 44 miles, Starved Rock State Park is 23 miles, downtown Ottawa or Marseilles are both about 9 miles, Skydive Chicago is 6 miles. In Norway, just 2 miles down the road is Pirates Cay waterpark, an adorable store that serves breakfast, lunch and dinner, plus Francesca’s pizza will deliver to the house. There are several great places to eat in Ottawa as well as wine tasting and a brewery. I keep some local maps, menus and travel brochures for you to peek through.
  • We had a wonderful stay with Lisa. The private room at the bottom of the house allowed us to relax and rest for our cross country trip. The house was very dog friendly and made our trip a lot less stressful.

    Melissa2019-12-01T00:00:00Z
  • Our stay was fun and cozy! Lisa was a very kind and helpful host, who made sure that we had everything we needed. The space was clean, comfortable, and a great value! We also loved that we were able to bring our dog along with us— there was even a water dish and pet bed out ready for him upon our arrival!

    Davey2019-11-30T00:00:00Z
  • Great spot for the price! You have your own basement apartment (entrance thru main house) with private patio. 10 minutes to down town Ottawa, and 20 minutes from Starved Rock and Matthiessen State Parks! Gorgeous drive to the Parks. Lisa is a very friendly and informative host. Would definitely come back.

    Anna2019-11-28T00:00:00Z
  • Lisa has a wonderful home, it is both pet and people friendly :o) ! She is quick to respond, check in and out are a breeze, accommodations are comfortable! I would (and did) check availability whenever I am in need of a place to stay in her area! Thanks again Lisa!

    Regina2019-11-24T00:00:00Z
  • Our stay at Lisa’s private apartment was great! The space was clean and thoughtfully crafted. The yard and property and beautiful and check in was very simple. It’s also a pet friendly space which was a huge selling point for us. Thanks for having us!

    Trevor2019-11-17T00:00:00Z
  • Lisa’s place is located off the freeway and is about 15-20 mins to everything the area has to offer. Lisa has great communication and is vert flexible from check-in to check-out. Her hospitality is outstanding and the place is really great. She had notes and helpful tips that helped us make our stay as comfortable as it can be.

    Ian2019-11-10T00:00:00Z
  • This is quite an outstanding, well-priced lodging. You have the whole basement area to yourself, which is like a full suite with kitchen, bathroom, bedroom, and living room combined. The bed in particular was very comfortable, and the whole place was clean and clearly well taken care of. Lisa is a very friendly and accommodating host, and seems to be able to provide just about anything you might need for your stay.

    Alden2019-11-03T00:00:00Z
  • Very comfortable. Very homey. This is a great place to stop and relax if you’re out traveling or just wanna get away. Very peaceful. A great place if you travel with dogs. Lisa was very easy to work with and always got back to me promptly when I contacted her.

    Michelle2020-02-02T00:00:00Z

    Jenine2019-07-20T00:00:00Z
  • The place was very clean and close to restaurants/ shops in town. Communication was very quick and helpful. Great place to stay if you want to be near starved rock or want to go somewhere in ottawa! I would recommend to anyone who wants to stay in the area.

    Laurie2020-05-03T00:00:00Z
  • 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.

    Julie2020-03-02T00:00:00Z
  • 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!

    Louisa2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • 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.

  • Kelly’s place was perfect! The space was beautiful! She has a gorgeous tray ceiling and the bathroom was huge with plenty of towels and a jetted tub. The bed was so comfortable! I slept better than any hotel for sure. She did an amazing job making the place comfortable and it truly felt like I was on a relaxing getaway which I seriously needed. The town is so cute and there is plenty of food options even during this time. So looking forward to coming back when everything reopens so I can experience the bars and restaurants and wineries. We could not get into Starved Rocks but her place was close to the I&M Canal trail and there were several miles open on that trail and very very minimal people. Seriously a great stay!!

    Kandi2020-05-03T00:00:00Z

    Ryan2020-04-26T00:00:00Z

  • Amazing little place in a perfect location. we were incredibly happy with our stay

    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!

  • We spent our stay walking all around Starved Rock Park. The location of this airbnb is right across the street from St Louis canyon. It was so nice to have such a short distance to travel at the end of a long day of hiking. Once inside, the space is SO beautiful. I could honestly say I'd decorate my house the exact same way and kept joking to my husband I was going to take all the furniture home! The pictures do NOT do this place justice. It is so much bigger inside than I expected. The HUGE tub in the master bedroom was such a treat on sore muscles from hiking and carrying my 9 month old all day. Both my 4 year old and 9 month old boys enjoyed playing in such a big tub as well. The kitchen was well stocked with the basics for cooking so all you need to bring is the groceries and you'll be all set to cook full meals. The host also responded to our texts immediately and was very helpful when we couldn't figure out which building it was. Overall a really great experience. We will definitely be back!

  • Great place to stay! Clean, stylish, comfortable! Downtown Ottawa is very close. We did the art wine walk and had a great time getting to know the shops and artists and locals! Easy drive to Starved Rock! We had a fantastic weekend getaway!

    Meredith2019-11-03T00:00:00Z

    James2019-08-25T00:00:00Z
  • We really liked this place and location. We were looking for a getaway outside Chicago and I will admit that Ottawa, IL was not at the top of our list... But I found this place and it was great. We hiked at Starved Rock or Matthiessen in the morning and then relaxed at the cottage in the afternoon. The cottage was very clean and had everything we needed to make ourselves at home for a few days. The deck was great for sitting with a cup of coffee in the morning and a drink at night :) There is a pool right outside the back door that the kids loved. The neighbors we ran into were very friendly as well. It's a quick drive from Chicago but it was a really nice, relaxing vacation away from things.

    Friday & Saturday nights must be booked together for a weekend stay here. It will allow you to book it but we will not be able to accommodate as we just don't allow check ins or outs on Saturdays. Airbnb does not collect county taxes so guests will receive a funds request from us for that amount. Guests of Kishauwau's Starved Rock Area Cabins enjoy the peaceful atmosphere we offer. Roomy, well spaced cabins provide the privacy our guests are looking for. Bridge cabin offers a studio atmosphere with only the bathroom walled off separately. It has 1 queen sized bed and a separate fold out futon so may have either a maximum of 3 adults or 2 adults/2 smaller kids. The bathroom has a standard bathtub/shower combination so you step into the tub to get a shower. Every cabin here offers a full kitchen, central heating & air, covered porch with porch swing and personal outdoor bonfire pit with picnic table & grill.
    Individual cabins on a family run property. My husband and I live right on site. Our office building is left open to guests 24/7 so you can borrow movies, games, puzzles & reading material. You also purchase firewood, pizzas, ice cream, drinks, s'mores items as well as other things on the honor system. Although we have family cabins here, our property is very quiet for that peaceful, romantic getaway you are looking for. Just a 10 minute drive from Starved Rock & Matthiessen State Parks and a 20 minute drive to next bigger towns with fabulous restaurants & shopping.
    Quiet, country setting on a bluff above the Vermilion River. There is a small hiking trail along the river you can access if you ask us about it. Some people fish the bank at the back of the property as long as they bring their own bait & tackle and are willing to tackle the hill that leads to it. This is only as long as we haven't gotten too much rain as the river level will rise & flood the lower level.
  • Great location filled with everything you needed for a good weekend getaway!

    Wally2020-01-28T00:00:00Z
  • My boyfriend and I loved the cabin we stayed in. It kept us warm in the middle of a cold January day. We will definitely come back!

    Molly2020-01-20T00:00:00Z
  • This was a wonderful place. Quiet, scenic, and they had everything you need. Terisa is very kind and welcoming, offering plenty of information on the area and suggestions for your vacation itinerary. The cabin was very clean. The fall colors on the property were outstanding! We’ll be back.

    Josh And Angela2019-10-25T00:00:00Z
  • The space was very clean and the cabin had wonderful touches that made it feel homey. The seclusion and privacy of the cabin was great and the hospitality was so appreciated. Check in and check out was a breeze and the amenities offered were wonderful!! The cabin was beautiful and there were a lot of things to do! We will definitely be back to stay again!

    Quinn2019-09-03T00:00:00Z
  • My partner and I stayed for our first time at Kishauwau’s cabins. It was better then expected in so many ways. The grounds were quiet and everyone seemed really respectful. They helped set that tone for renters which is much appreciated. The cabin was clean and large. We loved access to our own fire pit and having all the little tools, silverware, etc to be liveable. The honor system general store is really cute with all the basics for a great cabin experience, and a heck of a big selection of dvds. I love the trusting attitude that was even present for our self check-in. It was so nice to be able to unplug and just be. We will be back, thanks!

  • Stayed over New Year's and it was better than I expected. Place was very clean and stocked with more than enough towels, soap, etc. Beds were very comfortable, I felt right at home. The Villa is right down the road from the Starved Rock. Dustin was very helpful and responded very quickly to my messages. We are already talking about going back over the summer.

    Katie2020-01-02T00:00:00Z
  • The place is extremely clean. It was large, bigger than expected. The location is great and the weather really cooperated. We were able to take hikes at Starved Rock in spite of it being late December. I can just imagine how beautiful it is in the other seasons. Definitely recommend it.

  • 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

    Kyle2018-04-22T00:00:00Z
  • Dana was awesome! From the moment we booked our room she started her communication with us! Loved the B & B charm as well as her hospitality. We had the brunch and it was terrific and so much food! So worth the 15.00 a person! Can't wait to make a trip back!

    Karen2017-10-30T00:00:00Z
  • Gorgeous Victorian Mansion overlooking downtown Ottawa and the confluence of the Illinois and Fox River. Perfectly located to explore Starved Rock State Park and surrounding area. Dana made us feel at home and her great breakfast, prepared from scratch using organic ingredients, allowed us to skip lunch and spend the day exploring the trails. Looking forward to return for fall colors.

    V. Daniel2016-04-02T00:00:00Z
  • My girlfriend and I decided a weekday retreat from the city and a trip to Starved Rock was in the cards. Our experience with Dana and The B&B was nothing short of exceptional. The house has great vintage charm, is very clean and offers an excellent way to get some peace and quiet for a few days. We stayed in the River View bedroom, which was large, light-filled and fit our needs perfectly. Nights were spent in the saloon having cocktails, wine and chatting with our wonderful host. Having read the reviews prior to coming, we had some pretty lofty expectations of the breakfast. Dana knocked them out of the park! We even left with a few recipes. Thanks Dana. Location is convenient to Ottawa (a short walk across the bridge), 15 minutes to Starved Rock and a short car ride to the grocery store.

    Andrew2015-11-04T00:00:00Z
  • Dana was the ideal host, friendly, helpful with the area, and prepared a spectacular breakfast (the best meal we had in Ottawa/Starved Rock area. The room was great and the B&B delightful.

  • The Grand Ridge Lustron was one of the most unique and trendy lodgings I’ve ever stayed in. Karen was a great host and very resourceful. Grand Ridge is a charming little town and the house is just a short drive from Starved Rock and downtown Ottawa making it the perfect place to stay in Starved Rock country.

  • My girlfriends (of 30 years!) and I couldn't have found a better place to relax together for a little reunion weekend. From the super comfy beds to the sharp kitchen knives (we love to cook) to the stylish retro decor and interesting historical documents about the Lustron company, we were completely charmed. Karen was prompt in all communication and left great recommendations on all the local sights to see. Enjoy!

At one point I needed an iron for my clothing (I was on my way to a wedding) and she was wonderful enough to bring one over. This is a host who will go above and beyond in order to make your stay pleasant and comfortable. Also, the place is really unique and has a lovely interior. I really enjoyed my stay!

    Josh2019-06-26T00:00:00Z
  • The Lustron home was a clean, comfortable space. I like the historical significance of the place, even though its vibe reminded me a bit of my grandparent's. The house was well-equipped with everything we needed for a comfortable, quiet weekend away. The bed was very comfy, with high-quality sheets and pillows. The house is located a bit closer to its neighbors--and the highway--then I imagined. But this didn't cause any problems. There is nothing to do in walking distance (which was fine by us), so expect to drive about 20 minutes to nearby towns or attractions if you're looking for things to do outside the house. Karen was a responsive host. She replied to our questions quickly, and kindly recommended Matthiesen State Park over Starved Rock if we wanted to encounter fewer visitors (we did). Overall a very good stay and host. I recommend.

    This is the master bedroom offered in a spacious, meticulously clean, tranquil home, walking distance from downtown restaurants and activities, suitable for couples, solo adventurers, business travelers, and pets. The kitchen is very well appointed, and the internet is fast. If the Master bedroom is available, there is likely another AirB&B guest staying in the guest room, and I will not on premises. I do not rent the rooms out separately to people with children, but will allow one small pet.
    Nice residential neighborhood, walking distance from restaurants, groceries, gyms, parks and the river. 10 minute drive from Skydive Chicago. 10 minutes to Starved Rock State park, and other similar activities.
  • Clean, great location

    Jennifer2019-11-30T00:00:00Z
  • Taneva's place is great! A cozy house just walking distance from most anything you would need in Ottawa. If you're a skydiver who's headed to SDC you can't beat this spot. 10 minutes from manifest after a left turn, then a right turn. It couldn't be easier. If you're in town for something non-skydiving related, you're a stone's throw from the river, from the town square, and a few great places to eat and relax. Taneva is excellent in communicating and gets back within minutes, which is a HUGE plus in my book. I'll definitely return!

  • The place was exactly as advertised! A clean, well-furnished, spacious house within a block of multiple places to eat or drink and five minutes from Starved Rock State Park! Christy was a gracious host, very easy to get a hold of, and very helpful when it came to any questions we had. We loved our experience and look forward to visiting again in the future!

  • Extremely warming and felt a homely experience. Small town Illinois written all over it. It was a highly enjoyable time.

  • Christy’s place was wonderful. Her location was fabulous. We were able to walk to downtown Utica and enjoyed our complimentary wine tasting!

  • We absolutely loved this house. Full amenities, sparkling clean, and right near everything in town and Starved Rock. We will be back for sure.
