Hidden Creek Estates is owned and run by Kerry & Dude Frank. In 2007 they started an aviation software company and grew a successful company over the next decade. In 2018 they sold their shares and changed the legacy of their family forever. 

The Frank family home is in Roscoe, IL. When they learned that 30 acres of beautiful farm land nearby was for sale and would potentially be turned into a subdivision they had to do something. The property held 185 years of history, 2 miles of manicured trails, and provided income for a local farmer. In just a few days they chose to purchase the property to preserve the integrity of the grounds and its natural beauty and hoped to use it to give back to their community in some way. 


They weren’t sure what to do with the property and then Covid-19 hit. Kerry’s sister was about to get married a few months later, and her venue cancelled. The Frank family offered to host the wedding on the new property, and an idea sparked. This could be a really special place. Before they knew it they helped two other family friends replan their weddings on the property. As word began to spread, they realized this property was perfect to host special events and make amazing memories. After hosting a few weddings, they decided this was the perfect location to host weddings, special events, and community events. Today the Frank family continues to improve and care for the grounds and are currently remodeling their iconic antique yellow barn to host events.

My name is Archie I was born February 22, 2020. I am a Mini Golden Doodle, and I sure act like one! My skills include: Getting my belly rubbed, and running aimlessly in circles!

I am Bobo, the oldest. At 12 years old and the King of the house, I am not to be messed with. I use my cuteness to my advantage for easy treats! Not only can I play dead, role over, and shake… I can sneeze on command too!

My name is Oliver or Ollie for short. I am the youngest being born on July 23, 2020. I am Archie’s half brother and we definitely act like brothers! I love to play fight with Archie, chase anything that moves, and I absolutely love singing along with Kim. I do not like taking pictures.
