Another amazing stay last weekend for my birthday. The cabin was clean and cozy, stocked with everything we could have needed. My boyfriend watched three deer cross the front yard. We did a little hiking and stopped at a few local restaurants, The Iron Whisk was our favorite. We will definitely be back.!

This is my favorite place to getaway. These cabins are in a perfect, secluded setting in the deep Southern Illinois Woods. I’ve stayed in two different cabins and they both were lovely. Clean hot-tubs, wonderful interiors to the cabins- the beds are comfortable and the linens were clean! I’m staying here whenever I visit Southern Illinois!

The cabins were neat and the furnishings fit in with being in the woods. My son enjoyed the hot tub after a long day of climbing. The appliances were very modern though we only used the refrigerator.

I stayed in two of these cabins with a dog. They were amazing! Very clean and stocked with everything you need. Very close to hiking trails and the Shawnee wine trail. The cabins are connected to satellite TV and the hot tub is wonderful. I highly recommend these cabins!
