"Your Cabin In The Woods Since 1962"

*UPDATED COVID STATEMENT: As of December 7th, 2020, we will be shutting down rentals at Little House of Glencoe for the winter. This is due to the unknown nature of COVID and the possibly that the colder months could possibly cause COVID to spread more rapidly. We plan to  assess the health crisis and if all goes well, will be open again on March 1st, 2021 for rentals. We truly appreciate all of our renters and hope that you will return. The safety of Little House and the people that use it is our first priority. Thank you for your understanding.

Little House of Glencoe is a small gem nestled in the woods and is the perfect place for any event!  This nature spot offers space for a campfire, cookout, birthday party, camp out, meetings and even weddings!  Originally a Girl Scout camp, the Little House of Glencoe is available for rent and serves the North Shore towns of Glencoe, Highland Park, Northbrook, Deerfield, Glenview, Wilmette, Skokie, Evanston, Winnetka, Kenilworth, and beyond.

It is a one room heated building with the feeling of a country cottage and is complete with a kitchen, bathroom with two toilets, small stage and fireplace. The house also includes an enclosed patio complete with fireplace! Outside is a campfire ring and plenty of space for camping.
