The weather wasn't great but the people working there were very friendly. We had a few issues with the refrigerator and the stove but the hotel repair guy came right out and was super happy to help. We never ate at the "grille" that they have and good thing we didn't because we saw a dead cockroach in the kitchen.

Second visit here. We go to disconnect from the routine and enjoy the seclusion - there is very limited cell phone and internet connections in the units. The units are clean they are decorated with rustic furniture the couch could use updating but the rest fits. We enjoy cooking on vacation the kitchen and supplies pretty much meet our needs... More

Check in was fine but our water park passes were not available to us until after the time share presentation. That was kind of a drag because they try to sell you something for the entire two hours. Getting the gifts was fine: 3-day water park passes and $100 cash but when we went to the water park it was... More

A friend rented us a weekend here, the room is really nice, small fully equipped kitchen, living room, 2 bedrooms each with a bathroom, fridge, tv, and microwave, 1 with a jacuzzi. We were on the ground floor so we had a private patio. Our ground level was actually down 2 flights of stairs. They have a "bridge" you walk... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Relax and Renew in Rolling Midwest Hills. The sprawling resort is located about an hour-and-a-half south of Chicago in the beautiful, rolling hills of Illinois. It features a wide range of outdoor activities for family fun. It starts with a stocked, seven-acre lake, ready for fishing. Or, rent a canoe or paddle boat and enjoy a relaxing cruise across its still waters. For swimming, we have an indoor and outdoor pool, plus the always fun year-round indoor Pirates Cay Indoor Water Park™. It features interactive water features, water slides, lazy river, food outlets and more. For sports, enjoy everything from basketball, tennis and volleyball to cross country skiing. And our 9-hole, par 3 executive golf course will help you get that swing back. Plus, the 18-hole mini golf course is a big hit with kids, as is the Activity Center with an arcade, mini movie theater and more. A playground, ball field and sports equipment and even horseback rides help round out your outdoor fun. Sheridan, IL is a rural location, making it a perfect place to get away and relax. Beautiful state parks, historic sites and golf courses are all nearby. Shopping, dining, movie theaters and other entertainment can also be found in the region. And, it's close enough to the greater Chicago area and downtown to experience a day of wonderful sites and attractions. ... more   less
