The countdown to spring has already started. Yet, we wake up to day after day of gloomy mornings and we need to have something to look forward to, right? That’s one of the major benefits of forward planning. If you book a 3-day getaway for Spring Break now, you’ll have a better selection of the type of room available. You can explore our website with your family and get them excited about our indoor pool, the waterfalls and canyons they could visit and the wildlife they might see. The grown-ups will be happy to know about the craft beer and specialty drinks in the Back Door Lounge, while the children can look forward to a scavenger hunt with mom and dad. There are no flight delays or security checks at Starved Rock Lodge. There are wide open spaces and beautiful places for amazing photos and many opportunities to reconnect on a different level. Being outside is rejuvenating and refreshing. So, yes, we should rush things like spring because travel and adventures make us happy. Experiencing a place you’ve never been that’s close to home but worlds away will create lasting memories for everyone. Who wouldn’t welcome not having to cook, clean or do household chores for a few days? Sometimes we all need time to play. A walk in the woods can help you get a better night’s sleep and the warmth of the fireplace in the historic Great Hall might be just what you need. We strongly encourage a mid-week trip so you still have your weekend to catch up when you get home. Check out the overnight packages available for spring! We hope to see you soon.
