Consumer Say: “In February I took some friends for a 'girl's weekend' and we had a great time. We went to nearby towns and did wine tastings at local wineries, did some shopping and spent the rest of the time relaxing at the resort.” “We had two children with us. An 11 and a 13 year old girl. They had a blast! We were not depending on only the activities at the resort to entertain us, although we spent one slightly rainy day at the activities center playing games, miniature golf, ect., and checked out some movies. The indoor pool was large and warm.” Fox River unit amenities: Beautifully Appointed 2 Bedroom 2 Bath Lockout Suite Jacuzzi in Master Bath Living Room with Pull-Out Sofabed Dining Area Air Conditioning Carpeting Cable/Color TV's Kitchen with Dishwasher and Microwave Telephone Service Fox River on-site amenities: Boating (Equipment available) Canoeing Children's Pool Cross-Country Skiing (Equipment available) Snowmobiling 5 Hole Par 3 Executive Golf Course Fishing Games Room Handicapped Unit Horseback Riding (Equipment available) Lake Laundry Facilities Miniature Golf Paddleboats Picnic Areas RV Sites 2 Playground Areas Snack Bar Indoor Swimming Pool (Covered & Heated) Outdoor Swimming Pool Basketball Courts Tennis Court (Equipment available) Volleyball Court Nearby amenities in the Sheridan, Illinois area: Seven-acre stocked lake Fishing Canoeing Indoor Skating Rink Starved Rock State Park Flo Glassblowing Museum of Science & Industry Shedd's Aquarium Chicago Water Tower Place Shopping along Chicago's Magnificent Mile (only 78 miles away) O'Hare International Airport (78 miles) Midway International Airport (64 miles)More
