Unfortunately the first impression of this place was not too good because as we approached it, we couldn't help but notice that the front yard looked terrible. There were a bunch of weeds and dirt in the front of the house which made the place look unkempt. There is an area in the back where the cottages are and although...

Beautiful, uniquely decorated cabins. Very clean, very comfortable. In room, two person whirlpool which is much needed after a day of hiking. Gourmet breakfast cooked by culinary artist Mary is brought to your cabin. This is not a place for kids, but perfect for couples who want privacy and couple time. There is nothing I could change or improve at...

Stayed at Landers House this past week for 3 days. The cabin (La Noche) was one of the cleanest I have been in. The breakfast each morning was incredible. The location is walking distance from shops and everyone was so friendly. The mattress was a bit soft for my liking else this would have received a perfect rating. I will...

This is an amazing place. When we first drove up we were taken back a little by the appearance of the main house. Please do not let that stop you from staying here. They are working on it. The cottages are decorated like something out of HGTV magazine. We stated in the African Serengeti room, jacuzzi (with robes), TV, fireplace,...

What a great place to put your feet up or soak in the in-room whirlpool. Comfortable, clean, quiet cabin's that are just what one needs for a relaxing night (s). Great personnel run the place and the breakfast is outstanding. One block from main street where 4 pubs / bars are waiting to prepare a meal and serve a beverage....

My boyfriend and I decided to stay at the Landers House after seeing the pictures online. The Caribou room was absolutely GORGEOUS and I felt completely relaxed after a long year at school. The amenities in the actual cabin were wonderful, and the staff was friendly and accommodating. We had so much fun hanging out and listening to music--and the...

My husband and I were looking for a place to stay near Starved Rock State Park and couldn't get a room at the lodge. After trying several other places, I found a room available at Landers House. I had low expectations, but was very happily surprised. We arrived late, so were provided with a packet of information, map, and keys...

Visited during Thanksgiving weekend of '11 with my partner and our dog. Wanted a place close to Starved Rock where we could just crash after a day of hiking, but Landers was SO MUCH MORE than that. Stayed in the Caribou Cottage: COZY, COMFORTABLE, CLEAN... Among the many great features are the large jacuzzi, gas fireplace, outside firepit, beautiful loft...

I recently got home from an amazing getaway at Landers House in Utica, and like the comment below me says, although there are past reviews that are not so great, Mary who obviously runs the entire place from what it seemed like, has turned the place around. The cottage was very nice, great 2 person jacuzzi tub and nice decor'....

“Our cabin was great but didn't see the other rooms or cabins. If they are the same as ours, they should be fine.”

“The Mountain Lodge is a perfect room for couples. We didn't plan to be in the room much because we hiked all day at Starved Rock, then went into town to eat and drink. We didn't think it was necessary to get a suite. The mountain lodge faces the street, but it's super quiet, and has trees that provide excellent shade and a nice breeze into the room!”
