If you've never been to NW Illinois, specifically The Galenta Territory, you're missing out. It's the rolling-hill countryside in France or Italy. Gorgeous!
The spot to stay is the Eagle Ridge Resort & Spa. The lobby has a real log cabin feel, smells like pine or campfire, the rooms are serene and the surroundings are all nature.
Golf if you wish, hike trails, ride horses. Nice ski resort-type bar and good food.
