The fried chicken served family style is a fun dining experience. When was the last time your family sat together, for one meal, passing the mashed potatoes?! Worth the drive, the time and the money. The view itself is memorable, not to mention the 3ft tall chess pieces.

We had been to the lodge before but had never stayed here. We spent two nights here in the older side of the lodge. Room was clean and cozy, and we both thought the bed was really comfortable. Bathroom only had a shower, which surprised us, but wasn't an issue. Pool and hot tub were not busy either evening. Our side of the lodge was quiet and peaceful. Just what we were looking for.

Enjoyed our 28th wedding anniversary at the lodge restaurant. The service was very good. The lodge is beautiful. The menu is not for those looking for a healthy choice. My wife had the turkey burger. Very dry and not very tasty. I had the fried chicken, mashed potatoes and gravy and green beans. Chicken was very good. I would make that choice again.

We ate in the restaurant. The food is great. If the fied chicken is ordered, you also get coleslaw, mashed potatoes and gravy, the vegetable of the day, and rolls. These are served family style and refills are available. If you leave hungry, it is your own fault.

Beautiful!! Out in the middle of nowhere, but close to Grafton, IL. Stayed in a Cabin with with my family(husband and 2 teenage boys). Cabins are very nice. Cabin had bunk bed, queen size bed, full bath, place to hang clothes, drawers, and sitting area with TV. Not too big, but why would you need a lot of space when you have the lodge and park area to explore. Ask the front desk about fishing poles to use and think they have bicycles too. The main lodge has "big" games in the common area to play, great seating area to watch the river, indoor pool, restaurant, and wine bar. Everything about this place is a little rustic, so don't expect a lot of fancy. THIS IS COUNTRY, a place to get away from the electronic devices and enjoy the sounds of nature. Lot off history to take in. Grafton has winery's, shops, zip line, and plenty of place to eat. EAT at the lodge restaurant!!! Breakfast buffet hit the spot and they have awesome fried chicken dinner.
