Winery attached to this lodge which makes for great evening entertainment. Zipline too. Views overlooking the river, not from rooms. Checkout time not advertised. Roads are on a steep incline. Different options for lodging.

We had a couples weekend at the Villas at Aeries. We all had a great time. The rooms were exactly what we were looking for, a place with a common area where we could get together. There are several different options available at Aerie's I'm sure there is something for everyone. Oh, and by the way, the view from the...

My wife, her two sisters and husbands, and four kids shared the Eagles View above the Office. The view was great and that's were it ended. Upon getting into our suite, which consisted of four separate lockable rooms, we found that the front door was jammed and we could not get out. We were told that was on the work...

My boyfriend and I needed a nice night away so we decided to stay here. We had a nice dinner at the winery. The suite rooms are very nice and clean. The jacuzzi tub in the bathroom added to our relaxation. The negatives of this room are, it's loud. You can hear everyone in the hall, there's a room above...

Let me start with the positives in this place. The winery has breath taking views, the pizzas are wonderful, and the staff at the winery were very polite. This was our first stay at one of the cottages, I booked online for #37. We stayed there only because Tara Point was full. It was a last minute getaway. 2 hours...

Went to Grafton for a wedding. The wedding and reception was at Pere Marquette. So glad I didn't stay there. Pere Marquette was very nice. And the the food and reception was great! But, this review is about Aerie's. I never thought there was a place like this in Illinois! We stayed in a Suite! There are hotel type rooms...

We spent one night and two days at Aerie's for a company strategic planning meeting. Everything was perfect! Angela and Brad were great to work with while planning our meeting. The food that was prepared for our meeting was wonderful. We had breakfast and two lunches. Although the sleeping rooms were not fancy, they were immaculate. We loved finding muffins...

We visited for a wedding weekend. The view is amazing. The Villas are overpriced at $180 per night for a studio style room. Walking into the room, there is a bathroom with shower on the left, a microwave and mini fridge kitchenette to the back and a full sized bed to the right. The room was crawling with spiders. The...

Four friends went zip lining then stayed at one of the suites. It was very nice and clean. The pull-out couch was very creaky and uncomfortable, but the bed was great. It had a nice tub with jets. There were muffins and juice for us. The view was great. We will do this again!
