Savanna, Illinois

Detailed location provided after booking

Scenic views
This scenic country getaway, located in the northwest corner of Illinois, is just four miles away from the beautiful Mississippi River and the historic old river town of Savanna, Illinois. The property is steeped in history and family values and is part of what was once my family farm dating back to 1860 when the hosts' ancestors settled here from Pennsylvania.

Its idyllic, bucolic setting is surrounded by the gently rolling hills and farms of northwest Illinois. Guests wanting to escape the noise of the city can fall asleep here to the sounds of frogs and crickets from the nearby creek and wake up to the distant mooing of cows and roosters crowing. The rental's large yard is full of flower gardens, bird feeders, and mature trees.

Nearby, there are parks and wildlife refuges such as the Mississippi Palisades State Park and Upper Mississippi River National Wildlife and Fish Refuge. It is just a five-minute drive to downtown Savanna and guests can also visit the nearby historic city of Mt. Carroll, just six miles to the east.

Located at the end of a gravel road, the cottage is less than half a mile to Highways 52 and 64. Guests can also spend the day at historic Galena, Illinois, which is only a short 35-mile drive from the property and close to many of the area's local wineries.

With the Mississippi River just a few miles from the rental, outdoor enthusiasts will not be short on activities. The river and its inlets and channels are prime territories for walleyes, catfish, bass, and saugers. The property is near lakes that have formed along the river such as Buffalo Lake to the north and Town Lake, Edick Lake, and Spring Lake to the south.

Aside from fishing, guests can enjoy a day on the water boating, kayaking, canoeing, paddleboarding, and swimming. Along the river is the Great River Bicycle Trail which offers scenic hiking and biking. The area around the river is full of forests and is home to Hanover Bluff Nature Preserve and the Upper Mississippi River National Wildlife and Fish Refuge.

Aside from the outdoors, the towns near the rental are small and full of country charm. Guests can visit nearby Mt. Carroll with its boutique shopping and historic buildings. Galena, Illinois, is also a historic town with unique shops and attractions and is only 35 miles away.
