"Your Cabin In The Woods Since 1962"


 Here at Little House, our priority is making sure that we provide a clean, safe environment for our renters. As we all have heard, the number of Covid cases has spiked and continues to rise. As a result, we have decided to close Little House of Glencoe for a couple of months to outside renters. We feel that by doing this during the winter months, which may prove to be challenging, we will better protect the house and the people who use it.

*Starting Friday November 27th, Little House will be closed until the end of February 2021. We will continue to monitor the situation and hope that we will be able to open up again in March. We thank all of our renters for their support! Please come back and visit us again when these difficult times are behind us!

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.

Little House is located in the Forest Preserve District of Cook County’s “Skokie Lagoons” in Glencoe, IL. 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.

The Little House of Glencoe is available by reservation only*.
