Is your family ready to celebrate the holidays together? Bring everyone together this festive season with a visit to our family-friendly resort just minutes from Starved Rock State Park. Kids of all ages will love the family craft time, Grand Ducky Derby, and family movies. During the holidays, our resort really shines with bright lights, crackling fires, and fun activities. This year, cherish the holiday season with your kids in Northern Illinois. Along with making holiday arts and crafts, there are several family events taking place.
Family Story Time
The holidays are filled with heartwarming tales that add a touch of joy to the season. Every evening at 7:20 pm, you can bring your little ones to the Grand Lobby to hear a story to open up their imagination. Cozy up around the fireplace with Grizzly Jack and Grand Bear for an exciting holiday event.
Family Movie Time
Do your kids love a good movie? Gather together to watch a holiday classic this December. Every Thursday, Friday and Saturday at 8pm, our hotel will be screening a fun flick that everyone in your family will enjoy.
Grand Ducky Derby
If you plan on staying at our resort on Christmas or New Year's Day, you're in luck! Every Saturday, Sunday, and holiday, you can head to our indoor waterpark for the Grand Ducky Derby.
