|Irish Hollow is a beautiful country inn and resort, with intimate cottages for two set on a beautiful 500+ acre estate in upstate Illinois. One of the owners is gluten-intolerant, so they have a complete understanding of "gluten-free!" The lodging includes meals.... 3 course breakfast each morning and a 7-course dinner one of the nights of your stay. The food is ABSOLUTELY MAGNIFICENT!! And.... both the regular and the gluten-free version were equally as impressive!! The Inn is known for customizing their chef\'s-choice meals to suit any particular dietary needs, and/or food alergies. it was so relaxing to know that we could eat "care-free," without worry of being fed the wrong foods. The accommodations are STUNNING. We had a superb Cottage for two on the property with the most wonderfula and comfortable amenities that you can imagine.... wood burning fireplaces (even in the bath) king siz ORGANIC-MATTRESSED bed, heated floors, double spa tub, shower room for two, and a gorgeous sitting room. The cottage was so beautiful that we had to drag ourselves away to visit the wonderful historic town, and to ski at Chestnut Mountain (just 3 miles away!). We returned to our cottage daily to find diferent organic (gluten-free) hand made cookies, pastries, candies.... It was the most amazing experience! The massage staff is SUPERB, as well. We enjoyed Side-by-side, 75 minute massages on two of the days of our visit. the staff is very friendly. we plan to return OFTEN!!! Can\'t think of a better place to enjoy all of our special moments. The Holiday decorations were BREATHTAKING! And we can\'t wait to return for the Spring flowers. The miles of hiking trails take you past the Inn\'s organic gardens and pastures. We loved the snowy hiking, and look forward to sharing one of the Gourmet Picnic baskets that the Inn offers throughout the Spring and Summer.
