about this business

Kishauwau Country Cabins has been family owned and operated since 1986 when Ben & Ellen King purchased the land from the local Boyscout Council, then known as Camp Ki-Shau-Wau. While not knowing what they wanted to do with the property it slowly became a built-up family business that has gone through many transformations over the years. From the rustic beginnings of a mess hall (now the office and gift shop) and 4 original cabins (gutted and renovated into beautiful rentals), the King family and the help of friends constructed an additional 13 cabins over the next 20 years. A beautiful Koi pond was added in 2007 for a peaceful area to sit and read a good book or just enjoy the sound of the running waterfall and, of course, the entertainment of the frogs and toads.

With the passing of Ben in 2006 and Ellen in 2010, the legacy continues within the family. The King children decided to continue the business, known at that time as Kishauwau on the Vermilion.

Today, Jamie (son of Ben & Ellen), his wife Terisa and their children live right on this gorgeous property which is now known as Kishauwau Country Cabins…a year-round country retreat. Each season has its own natural allure that makes Kishauwau one of the most inspirational and memorable places to stay. The King family takes great pride in the property and are very responsive to any of their renter's needs. Guests are in direct contact with them – from key exchanges to cleaning, to repairs, and anything in between. They are here to help you create the getaway of your dreams!

  • "Just experienced our second trip to Kishauwau and we really enjoyed our time there. Peace and quiet, time to truly relax. We hiked at Matthiessen State Park and the whirlpool and wood stove were so wonderful to warm us up after! We will definitely be back." -Linda S.

  • "We had an awesome weekend at Kishauwau Country Cabins with all our children and grandhildren! Having a place to gather, with plenty of room to visit and play, this was the perfect spot. It was great to get away from the business of life and just enjoy our time together.
    Cabins were roomy and very comfortable, well-stocked and very clean. The King family made us feel like we had a home away from home. Thank you for accommodating us!" -Linda S.

  • "We recently stayed in Grandma's Cabin. It was spacious and comfortable and full of rustic decor and charm. We felt so at home there. Terisa ensures that all guests are comfortable and well taken care of. The kids loved buying ice cream and borrowing movies from the office. We hiked Starved Rock and Matthiessen State Parks. Both were beautiful. We enjoyed the fire pit and picnic tables in the back as well as the gas fireplace that Grandma's Cabin offers. The cabin is clean and well cared for. We will definitely be returning." -Heather M.
