Winter came early in the Stateline and that has us wishing to be cozy by a fire in a beautiful cabin.

Thankfully Illinois is home to plenty cabin rentals, including five that are just a short drive from Rockford.

Enjoy Illinois found ten great cabins you can rent in our state, but let's face it, we aren't driving five hours to settle into a cabin in Elizabethtown.

Instead, let's stick to the first five on this list, which are all about 90 minutes away from Rockford.

On a snowy day like today, maybe it'll take a few more minutes but it looks like it'll be worth it.
