About Us

We would like to welcome you to the lodge and cabins at White Pines Resort. Located in Illinois’ White Pines State Park, there are 385 acres of peace and tranquility waiting for you here, with miles of hiking trails to explore the wonders of nature.

That’s why our guests come here, to spend time close to nature, relax, be with family and friends, and enjoy the comforts our Inn has to offer . . . including our 25 comfortable and authentic one-room log cabins. With all that we have to offer, it's really no wonder why White Pines Resort was named one of the "15 Best Wilderness Getaways" by Midwest Living magazine.

The White Pines Resort Restaurant is a very popular dining spot and people come from all over Northwestern Illinois to enjoy the unique ambience and our home-style cuisine. For our cabin guests, getting to the lodge is just a short and pleasant walk.

The Resort is also home to a delightful gift shop that offers both amenities to use during your stay with us as well as items to take home as memories. We also offer live entertainment in our dinner theatre which runs mostly midweek matinees.


The Pines is an ideal getaway for people of all ages. We offer senior discounts in the restaurant, and in the cabins we built old-fashioned trundle beds to make room for families with children. The facilities are handicap accessible and there is even a wheelchair trail through the forest.

Come visit for the day or spend a few nights. Guests say midweek is the best time to visit and so we put together some great midweek cabin packages for Sundays through Thursdays.

See you at The Pines!

Elizabeth George, Founder, Creator & Chief Dreamer
