vacation rental description

This property is located on the tranquil Rock River in Oregon, Illinois and is perfect for a couple or family to get away. Enjoy fishing from the large deck or while out on the water with your boat. There is a boat ramp available in town and one hundred feet of river frontage at the house for convenient docking and usage. The charcoal barbecue will come in handy when you want to keep an eye on your fishing pole while preparing a delicious meal. The nights can be spent feeling the warmth of the campfire while roasting marshmallows or your favorite treat!

There are two bedrooms each with two beds. The master bedroom has two new queen beds. They are supremely comfortable so that you will sleep like a baby! The second bedroom has two twin beds and there's a hide-a-bed in the living room for larger get-togethers. The kitchen is fully stocked with a large table for many vacationers to gather at. The living room has two full couches and a wood fireplace for winter use. Views of the river are also enjoyed from the bar in the sun room. Our friendly neighbors might give you a wave.

Explore nature on any of the hiking trails of the surrounding three state parks. You'll find many activities to interest you such as horseback riding, dinner cruises, golf, and swimming at nearby lakes! Ask us where to find the bald eagle's nest!  Bring your canoe, kayak, or other water sport toys. See the activities section for more information and ideas.

Stay at the Rock River Hideaway to relax and unwind!

Quiet & Still Close to Town

Review submitted: September 4, 2013   Date of arrival: July 10, 2013

I had a restful time in July at Rock River. A quiet location for nature-lovers: birds, fish, turtles, canoes, and the neighbor's well behaved dogs. The deck and house is large & comfortable. The bar at the windows was my constant perch. Only 1 bath, in case you have a group of kids. This was my first visit to the area, and I love Oregon & wish to visit again & explore more. FYI, the neighbor says jet skis are found above the dam. From watching him clean his catch, there are some great fishing holes around. If arrival is by driving northbound, the sign & mailboxes are almost out of sight due to grass and fencing. You'll think you are pulling into a personal driveway. Owner/Tanzie will coach you in and make sure you are taken care of.

Owners response: Hello Road Dog, We hope that you come to visit again soon. It was a pleasure to have you stay at our Hideaway. Thanks again, Tanzie

Fall Vacation

Review submitted: October 9, 2012   Date of arrival: October 1, 2012

This was the perfect place for my husband and I to stay for Autumn on Parade, visiting family in the area. Quiet, clean. Beautiful views. We saw deer and geese. Beautiful sunsets. Close to town, yet out. Quiet and peaceful. Just can't say enough. Loved it. Tanzie is a great host. Always available if you have questions.
