An Illinois farm vacation dude ranch and bed & breakfast. Parent Magazine’s “Top 10 Family Resorts in North America.” Our family has been welcoming guests to our historic Illinois farm near Eldred, Illinois since 1963. Recreation activities include horseback riding, boating, fishing, swimming, hayrides, bonfires, singalongs and more. Bluffdale is famous for its generous home cooked meals with homebaked bread, rolls and pies.
Our luxury cabins, featuring a fireplace and hot tub, are ideal for romantic getaway weekend or honeymoon bed & breakfast lodging.
Spring brings a wide variety of wildflowers and morel mushrooms. In fall the bluffs make a colorful drive and eagle watch from Alton, Illinois to Bluffdale along the Great River Road, a National Scenic Byway.
