Enjoying noshing on good old down home cooking in the middle of a forest at this Illinois restaurant that's off the beaten path but your trip there will be so worth it.

Do you recognize the entrance to this restaurant?

Yes, it does seemed to be in the middle of nowhere, but it's only 45 minutes from Rockford. It's probably Mount Morris' best kept secret that you need to discover.

It's the White Pines Inn and Restaurant.

Only in Your State visited this is a gem of a restaurant and found that if you like discovering new places and awesome food then this is the place to eat at.

They're nestled into the White Pines Forest State Park just outside of Mount Morris, IL. The restaurant is set in a cozy log cabin style inside and out that offers down home cooking of all your favorite comfort foods. They've won awards for having the best buffet too!

If you want to surround yourself with the beauty of nature while enjoying a good meal then this is the place to come to. Fall has got to be the most beautiful time to be at the restaurant. Imagine sipping coffee enjoying a piece of their signature red raspberry pie while being surrounding by the colors of the autumn leaves.

Mmmmm...Mmmm Yes I'm ready for a road trip. How about you?
