    About Us

    Just minutes from Starved Rock, we offer luxury cabin rentals. We offer fully equipped kitchens, personal outdoor firepits and indoor fireplaces. Close to four parks!
    Kishauwau Country Cabins has been family owned and operated since 1986 when Ben & Ellen King purchased the land from the local Boyscout Council, then known as Camp Ki-Shau-Wau. While not knowing what they wanted to do with the property it slowly became a built up family business that has gone through much transformation over the years. From the rustic beginnings of a mess hall (now the office and gift shop) and 4 original cabins (gutted and renovated into beautiful rentals), the King family and the help of friends constructed an additional 13 cabins over the next 20 years. A beautiful Koi pond was added in 2007 for a peaceful area to sit and read a good book or just enjoy the sound of the running waterfall and, of course, the entertainment of the frogs and toads.
    With the passing of Ben in 2006 and Ellen in 2010, the legacy continues within the family. The King children decided to continue the business, known at that time as Kishauwau on the Vermilion.
    Today, Jamie (son of Ben & Ellen), his wife Terisa and their children live right on this gorgeous property which is now known as Kishauwau Country Cabins…a year-round country retreat. Each season has its own natural allure that makes Kishauwau one of the most inspirational and memorable places to stay. The King family takes great pride in the property and are very responsive to any of their renters needs.
