Like a desert oasis, luxury, relaxation, and trips to fantasy worlds can be found literally in the middle of nowhere. Look what's hiding in central Illinois.

When I first caught a glimpse of this place, I wasn't exactly sure if it was for real, but guess what?

Why would a couples-only hotel with these wildly fun-looking fantasy rooms be located in the middle of pretty much nothing? This just seems like the kind of place you'd see in a big city.

Once you see the photos of this place, you'll understand what I've come now to understand, if you're looking for a getaway like this, it has nothing to do with your surroundings and getting a room with a view. To be honest, I'm pretty sure these suites don't even have windows.

What's Your Fantasy?

That's a very personal question, I realize that but you don't have to tell me, I just want you to be thinking about it right now. You may find your next 'get the heck away from the kids' overnight plan below.

Which one of these fantasies below sounds like your thing:

  • Starlight Glacier

I get conflicting vibes from this room. Like 'baby let's get wild but let's still sit in our lazy boy chairs and watch tv.'

The Crystal Cave Suite

This one really does feel like it's underground. It's that 'no windows' thing.
