The Destination
Ninety minutes south of Chicago lies the antidote to the hustle and bustle of city life. It's called Starved Rock State Park, and it's an exercise in rusticity run wild. Rock formations lie on top of one another like slices of cake, iced only by verdant forests that stretch for miles. Cascading waterfalls dreamily plunge into streams that feed the Illinois River while eagles fly overhead. Visitors will want to drink in the sights on a wine tour or shop the town's quaint antique shops, while adventure-seekers will find gold in the bevy of hiking, canoeing, rafting, and ziplining opportunities that dot this quiet Midwest haven.

The Digs
Starved Rock State Park has been named among the Seven Wonders of Illinois, and just two minutes south lies the equally impressive Brightwood Inn. This plush, modern-day farmhouse overlooking Matthiessen State Park beckons guests into a world of private balconies, large bay windows, oversize whirlpool soaking tubs, and four-poster or wooden sleigh beds. The eight-bedroom farmhouse sits on 14 acres of countryside. "The rooms were lovely and comfortable," says a former guest. "We enjoyed having cookies and soda by the fireplace in the library after a long day of hiking through Starved Rock State Park."

  • "We were sooo impressed with everything about the inn. The caretakers were fabulous! The accommodations were beautiful, unique, and spotlessly clean. Breakfast was wonderful and we hated to leave!"
