Book this country retreat in Illinois! The best retreat centers in Illinois await

Featuring reclaimed beams and stone from Chicago's Navy Pier, this 10,000-square-foot lodge—plus 2,00 square feet of decking—is just the place for a group retreat in the countryside of northwestern Illinois. Located in Elizabeth near the historic town of Galena, the lodge is nestled on a working ranch at one of the highest elevations in all of Illinois and can accommodate up to 24 guests. There are eight bedrooms with an assortment of sleeping arrangements, including five king-size beds, one queen-size bed, and eight bunk beds. In addition, there are eight full bathrooms, and all linens and towels are provided. Guests will have access to high-speed Wi-Fi, multiple flat-screen televisions with premium channels, and the aforementioned deck—complete with patio furniture and breathtaking views.

The host provides guests with farm fresh eggs to make a delicious breakfast to get their day off on the right foot on their retreat in Illinois.

Given that this is a working ranch, there is livestock on site that guests will be able to interact with—especially fun for the little ones!—including cows, chickens, llamas, goats, sheep, pheasants, turkeys, peacocks, and horses.

What better way to spend time in nature than retreats in Illinois like this one! Retreat centers in Illinois don't get better than this.

In nearby Galena, there are a number of activities and experiences that guests of this glamping property simply cannot miss out on. Glampers can try their hand at doing yoga in the park, riding a scooter to the vineyards, kayaking or canoeing down the Galena River, discovering the banks of the Mississippi River, enjoy the nightlife on Main Street in downtown Galena, and, come wintertime, skiing or snowboarding at Chestnut Mountain. In addition, Galena boasts a great selection of shopping and dining options for guests, too. Equally as nice, however, is simply staying at this expansive ranch property and kicking back in a hammock with a good book and nothing but soothing countryside noises for company.
