Cabins Near Chicago, Illinois
At White Pines Inn, our traditional, yet modern cabins in Illinois resemble a pioneer village with 25 authentic one-room log cabins with gas fireplaces. Located near Oregon and Rockford and set among the towering pines, the cabins have beautiful hardwood floors the color of maple syrup. Each cabin has a hand-hewn log bed frame with a queen-sized mattress and a double bed trundle underneath. Each cabin has a private bath.
There are 13 one-room cabins with open-beamed ceilings. Another 12 cabins are built in groups of four under one roof. Each cabin offers a private entrance and bath, but there are interconnecting doors which makes them ideal for large families. Pillows, blankets and towels are provided. Modern conveniences include heat, air conditioning, phones, mini refrigerators, TVs and DVD Players. Your family might be relaxing in cabins in Illinois’ rural forest, but they’ll be as comfortable as they are at home. Cabins near Chicago that are this nice, and close, are hard to find.
