Escape. Relax. Enjoy.
White Pines Inn, located within White Pines Forest State Park in Northwestern Illinois, is less than two hours from Chicago, but a world apart.
Here, you can enjoy the historic lodge restaurant, pioneer guest cabins, our delightful country gift shop, our entertaining dinner theater, and even become "husband and wife" with our outstanding wedding facilities and services. This family-run resort is surrounded by the beauty and splendor of White Pines Forest State Park . . . with its moss-covered hiking trails, bubbling streams, rugged limestone outcroppings, and ever-present wildlife. The "Pines," as it is affectionately called, is a place of simple pleasures — a place to catch lightning bugs, a place to watch a fawn play innocently in the forest, a place to catch the wondrous scent of the lush pine forest.
Simply, White Pines Forest State Park, and White Pines Inn, have been hosting simple and relaxing pleasure for almost 80 years. Take some time here to explore this website to learn more about us and what we have to offer . . . but remember: there is only one way to truly appreciate us, and that's to come visit us.
Make your cabin getaway extra 'special' & surprise the ones you love with our new special touches. Add any of our "Special Touches" when making your reservation, and they will magically appear in your cabin.
