  • This place is a delightfully convenient combination of modern and rustic.

    Kelley2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • What a fantastic space! My husband and I took a weekend to visit the area, and this space was perfect for a couple! Sid and Nancy left some lovely amenities, which were so thoughtful! The cabin feels both rustic and modern, and the decor is perfect. We especially loved the “fireplace” heater and enjoyed curling up under the super soft blanket provided, on the very comfortable futon/couch while watching one of the provided movies. There were also a number of area brochures and guides, which were very helpful! We would absolutely stay here again in the future. The location is pretty central to a lot of places, and not far down the road is a beautiful look out point where you can watch the sun set.

  • This place was absolutely amazing! Check in was super easy. The place was absolutely adorable and had everything you would need for a few days in the woods. It was close to tons of hiking trails! I needed a reset after a few difficult weeks and this place couldn't have been better for that. I will absolutely be booking again!

    Mulberry Place is in the village of Alto Pass, in the Shawnee National Forest, and along the Southern IL wine trail. Adjacent to the Victorian home of your host, it is a separate 720 sq ft cottage, renovated in 2017-18, with 2 bedrooms, 1 bathroom, washer/dryer, fully-equipped kitchen, dining/living area, TV (Amazon/wifi), and deck with views of woods and valley, . It is also a venue for local artists, with art, jewelry, and music on display/featured, and available for purchase.
    Your hosts are founding members of The Angelina Foundation for Animal Welfare, a foster-home based, non-profit rescue. As a result of our rescue activities, there is a resident population of fully-vetted (spayed/neutered) cats that live both indoors and outdoors. While the inside of the cottage is pet-free, some of our feline residents may choose to visit you on the deck or patio. While we would love to offer dog-friendly lodging, we have chosen not to, to ensure the safety of our felines.
    The Cottage at Mulberry Place is located in the small village of Alto Pass, population 378, in the heart of the Shawnee National Forest and along the Southern Illinois Wine Trail. In the village is a general store, park with playground, pavilion, and picnic facilities, and walking/hiking path. Minutes away are wineries, breweries, fine dining, and a wide variety of outdoor recreation opportunities.
  • Lovely place to stay!

    Stephanie2020-01-05T00:00:00Z
  • This is a great cottage to stay in. It had everything we needed and more. The only mark I would give would be for the mattresses. None of us slept well on memory foam but it isn't enough of a mark to not stay there again so I gave it a 5 star. It was super clean, they had added amenities that weren't an additional cost, we felt very comfortable and "at home." I would definitely recommend this as a wonderful place to stay.

    Robbie2019-11-29T00:00:00Z
  • Mila’s place is cozy and nicely decorated. She provided snacks and local drink for us to try out. She was also a careful host, warned us for the hunting seasons. We really enjoyed the stay.

    Linna2019-11-24T00:00:00Z
  • You guys. I really want to keep this place a secret. But I can’t. So perfect!!

    Carmen2019-11-17T00:00:00Z
  • All kinds of snacks, coffee, creamers and the place was nicely furnished and so cute!

    Sharon2019-10-13T00:00:00Z
  • Mila goes out of her way to provide everything needed in case you left something at home. There was coffee, flavored creamer, lunch meat string cheese, eggs and even frozen pizza. Not to mention all the personal bathroom supplies. We loved the decor and the flooring was beautiful. Well done Mila.

    Sharon2019-10-11T00:00:00Z
  • Great location, super clean, everything you need. They had left breakfast and extra items in the fridge which was awesome because food is limited around there! Highly recommend!!

    Alicia2019-10-07T00:00:00Z
  • Mila is the best host you could ask for. Thoughtful, attentive, kind and prepared. The place is the best stay we’ve ever had and there are so many positive things to say about it. The location is perfect. In just a few steps is a trail that takes you through a beautiful forest along with a stone stairway that leads to a cliff view. There are so many things to do in the area, including: trails, Bald Knob Cross, the Iron Whisk in Cobden, the Rendleman Orchard and all the wineries. There is no shortage of great things to do. The actual place is nothing short of perfect. Air conditioned, spacious, with a full kitchen, lovely bath, and incredibly comfortable beds. Coming back to this place after a long day was always a wonderful way to close a day. The back deck is fantastic and the view is stunning. We also loved the cats who hang around outside, most especially Jerry Tom, a 20-year-old softy who gave us nothing but love when we were outside. We are going to book again as soon as possible. It’s the best place we’ve ever stayed. Absolutely recommend this place. Don’t bother looking anywhere else.

  • The Bitty House was wonderful! The house was sparkling clean and comfortable, and Patrick was a responsive host. The area and the grounds were much prettier than we expected. The pictures don’t do it justice. Highly recommended if you’re in the Shawnee National Forest area. We’ll definitely try to stay there again in the future. Thanks Patrick!

Even better were the kind, super friendly hosts that greeted us with smiles at our car. It really is as magical as it looks. We were in awe. Best Airbnb we have stayed in. Even better than our own, never thought that possible!

    Hutchins Creek Cabin is located along spring-fed Hutchins Creek, surrounded by Shawnee National Forest Wilderness Areas, and at the south edge of the Shawnee Hills Wine Trail. Featuring an open floor plan with 2 bedrooms and 1 bath, it can comfortably sleep 4-6 adults. Regardless of weather conditions, our cabin offers multiple outdoor living spaces including a fire pit, multiple decks, and a screened-in porch.
    Cabin The two-story cabin features an open first-floor with kitchen, dining, and living area. The walkout basement has a 2nd living area with futon, bathroom, and two bedrooms. The property is 3.5 acres, including a small yard, campfire pit, playground, pond (swimming not permitted), and grassland. Prior to becoming a guest cabin, the property was our home and small farm where we raised 2 young boys, vegetables, chickens, ducks, and pigs. Adjacent Wilderness and Hutchins Creek "Wilderness is a necessity...There must be places for human beings to satisfy their souls." -John Muir The secluded cabin is situated between La-Rue Pine Hills Ecological Area, Bald Knob and Clear Springs Wilderness Areas, and Trail of Tears State Forest. Together these public lands total more than 19,000 acres, creating the most wild, ecological diverse area in Illinois. This is our remaining wilderness, a place to relax and rejuvenate, and as Muir said, "a place to heal your body and soul." Aside from the wilderness location, what makes our cabin so unique is its proximity to Hutchin's Creek on Shawnee National Forest land. Hutchin's Creek (eligible for designation as a Wild & Scenic River) is a gravel bottom, spring-fed creek that flows year round. The creek's crystal clear waters have the state's highest water quality ranking for biological diversity and integrity. Large gravel bars and deep swimming holes provide an opportunity for a "day at the beach" (swim shoes/sandals/old tennis shoes are a must for the gravel). Kids and grown-ups alike will love the shallow riffles and stones to throw; we call it, nature's splash pad. A hike up the creek, into the untouched wilderness, is an unforgettable experience any time of the year.
    The closest neighbor is an old white church just up the road. No other buildings can be viewed from the cabin. The properties to the north, west, and south, including Hutchins Creek, are all Shawnee National Forest public lands. The property to the east is under private ownership, but there are no buildings present. Small tracts of private ownership do exist in Hutchins Creek valley, please respect boundaries. Detailed ownership maps are available upon request. South Hutchins Creek road does not go through to the north. There is a large steam crossing approx 1.5 miles north of the cabin. And another mile or so up the road from the stream crossing a bridge is out and it is impassable.
  • Place to stay!

    Debbie2019-08-25T00:00:00Z
  • We had a great stay at your cabin. I wanted our kids to spend a few days unplugged from technology before the start of a new school year. My 12 year old son and our dog loved exploring the creek. Our 15 year old daughter completed the large puzzle. We played games as a family- rarely find time to do this at home. Your hiking and restaurant recommendations were great. The cabin is in a good location close to hiking, wineries and unique restaurants. We look forward to a future stay!

    Karen2019-08-08T00:00:00Z

  • Our stay at Betty's Vineyard House exceeded our expectations! The house was thoughtfully decorated, clean, and made us feel right at home. Beth was very attentive to our needs and responded very quickly as we needed her. We enjoyed every bit of our stay there. It fulfilled a life dream of ours to stay on a vineyard - waking up to the view of the vines over coffee every morning was magical! This was the perfect place to stay while we explored the beautiful nature and wineries of Southern IL. We would most definitely stay here again the next time we find ourselves in the area!

They were so kind and hospitable. We loved having a community dinner and bonfire with them and some of the other guests on the property. And the property, is beautiful. Zach and I loved walking around the lake and on the paths behind the houses. B&P also gave amazing recommendations of where to eat and hike. We will definitely be back again and HIGHLY RECOMMEND! A must stay/getaway in the Southern IL area!

  • Great place. Stayed when temperatures went below freezing and house was nice and cozy. Really great use of small space, wasn't cramped at all for 2 people. Amazing views and great access to parks. The towns nearby are a cherry on top. Cobden had a great restaurant and cool shops. Makanda had some really cool artistry. Both unexpected additions to a weekend checking out Giant City Park. All around wonderful stay. Couldn't recommend more.

I loved being able to stop at Makanda Java for morning coffee and drive through Giant City State Park on my way to town every morning. Great place to stay (much better alt to Best Western!!)

    Kelsey2019-12-29T00:00:00Z

Our restaurants are fabulous!
    Alto Pass is extremely unique!
  • this place was beyond beautiful ! was perfect for a girls weekend .

    Sarah2020-01-26T00:00:00Z
  • Great place to stay in the beautiful Shawnee wine trails. My wife and I were visiting nearby Carbondale and Havisham house is an easy and pretty drive just south of town. The bathroom is fantastic, especially the bathtub and shower!!! Would definitely stay again!

    Cory2020-01-10T00:00:00Z
  • The Havisham House is the most beautiful place in a wonderful location and I hope to stay again soon!

    Caitlin2019-10-27T00:00:00Z
  • Jerri’s House was really beautiful. The house was restored with so much thought and care. We loved the location in Alto Pass. It was a convenient spot on the trail. Jerri offered so many thoughtful amenities. We’ll definitely be back again.

    Allison2019-06-09T00:00:00Z
  • The home was beautiful and in a great location along the wine trail. We loved the peace and quiet of the town and the gorgeous views down the road. The kitchen was well equipped for our cooking needs, and we cooked several meals in. We would definitely love to return.

    Melissa2019-05-27T00:00:00Z

    Beth2019-05-19T00:00:00Z

  • This is the second time my friends and I have stayed at Cale's place, and we had an even better time that the first time! There was plenty of space and bathrooms for our large group. We happily took advantage of the kitchen, DVD library, and wrap-around porch. This year, we also discovered that there is a massage chair in the office! We hope to visit again next year!

    Laura2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful house and location.

    Beth2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely space to accommodate large groups! We loved the location- so close to several wineries and hiking. The seclusion was great for star gazing and the space was lovely- our group played a game of kickball in the front yard because we had all this space! The house is definitely in need of some updates, but it was fairly clean, and we didn't find ourselves in need of anything- except to bring our own camp chairs! Loved that the stereo had an aux cable for us to play our own music!

    Hanna2019-10-06T00:00:00Z
  • Great place. Plenty of space! Everything was exactly as described. It is located close to a few vineyards and further away from a handful as well. Make sure you have a DD if you are doing the wine tours! Hospitality was amazing. Only thing that could have made it better is if there was WiFi :) Great place!! Would recommend and would stay there again.

    Haiven2019-09-22T00:00:00Z
  • The house was spacious and beautiful. I loved the memorabilia in the office area. The shower in the master bedroom had low pressure, though, but it was very clean. I would recommend staying in the room with the bunk beds, there are no windows and it is super dark. If you’re looking for a quiet, secluded house where you can star gaze all night long, this is the house for you.

    Derek2019-08-04T00:00:00Z
  • Great house in rural southern Illinois with plenty of space and comfort. I'd definitely stay there again.

    The house was completely remodeled in 2019. I'm moving from a nearby house to this one, so it's still sparsely furnished. Initially, guests may have to sleep on a twin or double air mattress until I get a bed & bedroom furniture moved in. The neighborhood is quiet & within walking distance of local businesses, to include grocery & hardware stores. The Southern IL University campus is only about a mile away - easy bicycling distance.

    Come one, come all! I have just moved into a new apartment and am glad to be hosting once again! I bring all the goodness that's associated with being a Canadian: bacon, beavers, hockey, and maple syrup? Am I missing anything yet?
    There's plenty of space in the living room, closets, bathroom, kitchen, and bedroom! The kitchen is shared, the living room is shared and so is the bathroom, which should not pose as an issue since it's a one-bedroom suite. As I mentioned, this apartment is new and the bedroom is for my Airbnb guests. Up to two adults can sleep on the bed, or three Slim Jims on my lovely Ashley Sleep Anniversary Edition Mattress Plush One. There is one study desk with a printer sitting on the bookshelf next to the desk. I have yet to have any pets but feel free to bring whomever you'd like. In compliance with the business travel amenities, I've got more towels than I can handle for your use. The bed sheet is a plain one that looks like the bed sheet one can find in a Renaissance-brand hotel. Really, the bed itself is also like new and alone was purchased for about a grand. Shampoo and soaps are also provided; bathroom is always kept as spick-and-span clean as possible, and cleaning supplies are under both the kitchen and bathroom sink. The Bathtub curtains are like new and kept very hygienic; the washing machine and dryer are also stationed inside this huge bathroom.
    Well-kept houses on the way to the university. The one and only car rental agency is just up the street (7-minute walk) from the apartment and they do a solid, unbeatable weekend rate!

  • Tranquility was exactly what we were looking for. We had a very peaceful stay and definitely plan on coming back in the future! Jeff and Crystal are great hosts and did everything they could to make us comfortable.

    Jordan2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • Jeff and Crystal have a great home for those looking to get away. We stayed for a long weekend to enjoy the Shawnee National Forest and were lucky enough to stay here. It is so quiet and peaceful. The home sleeps many and is very comfortable.

  • This place is a little off the beaten path, but it is in a nice peaceful area. It sits right off of the wine trail. We were able to visit the little Grand Canyon, and enjoyed our time. We were visiting family, and were able to cook dinner and have everything we needed. The place is rustic, but clean and as described.

    Private suite with fireplace on the Shawnee Hills Wine Trail. Close proximity to restaurants, Rendleman Orchards in Alto Pass and Flamm Orchards in Cobden. Plenty of opportunity for hiking and scenic drives in the Shawnee National Forest including Giant City State Park, Little Grand Canyon near Pomona and Panthers Den near Cobden. E-bike rentals are available locally and on the Tunnel Hill trail that spans from Karnak, IL to Harrisburg, IL.
  • Great jumping off point to explore all the area has to offer! Very clean, cozy and a comfortable bed. Joe was a very responsive communicator which is always appreciated. Too much to see and do in one weekend. Great hiking in Little Grand Canyon (our new favorite in the Midwest!), Giant City and the totally different environment of Cache River State Natural Area. So many wineries but Bonnie at Lincoln Heritage down the road (not on the actual wine trail) was such a pleasure to talk to not only about wines but also the history of the area. Their Black Jack wine is fantastic. I wouldn’t hesitate to stay here again!

    Enjoy southern Illinois wineries and adventures while staying just off the beaten path. Whether by yourself or with a partner, MoJo Valley is the place for everyone! With three wineries within five miles and located in the heart of the Shawnee Hills forest, we look forward to hosting your next trip.
    When you book your stay at MoJo Valley, you are guaranteed an enjoyable stay. Each reservation comes with one dozen farm fresh eggs from hens found on the property. The home comes with a queen bed and a sleeper sofa, as well as a full kitchen and bath. The home will be furnished with basic pantry items, a half gallon of milk, and orange juice. The nearest grocery store is approximately 15 minutes away and the nearest winery is just over a mile.
    The home is located in the middle of the Shawnee National Forest and it is quite likely that you will see no traffic during your stay. Once you leave the property, you are a short distance from multiple wineries. Most nights, you will hear nothing more than nature and light breeze blowing through the woods.
  • We stayed here when visiting our son who lives in the area. This cabin was so relaxing and inviting. We will be back!

  • How Don has his place advertised is what you will find when you arrive.

    Ty2019-12-16T00:00:00Z
  • Don & Hanna provided a truly 5-star vacation experience. Their rustic cabin was appointed with neat touches which stimulated the visual, acoustic, and tactile senses. Highlights included the antique desk and bathroom cabinet, the thoughtfully selected CD's of acoustic and jazz music, and the myriad classic novels that adorned almost every wall and shelf of the cabin. There was no Wi-Fi or cable, but with no lure of the outside world we could truly immerse ourselves in conversation over a board game while listening to Neil Young set against the sound of soft rain falling outside our window. The farm fresh eggs, muffin mix, and juice were the perfect cherry on top of a lovely weekend away from it all. Recommended for couples seeking a romantic retreat or single travelers looking to retreat from it all.

    Regina2019-11-02T00:00:00Z
  • The weather was a little rough so we relaxed and really enjoyed the music collection and the books at the house and watched deer occasionally drop by. The fresh eggs and items in the fridge make you feel right at home. We hiked in the state park and at Shawnee and spent some time at the Blue Sky Winery, Makanda, and Carbondale. Hope to make it back sometime and would stay here again.

    Eva's Roost is a rustic zen-style cottage on the property of Center For Lost Arts in Cobden. Nestled in the hillside the roost gives a sense of oneness with nature. No curtains allow a complete experience of nature: forest, pond, stars, moonrise, sunrise, birds & animals. Paul is the architect of everything you see. Bonnie offers Mindful Living sessions & facilitates individual/group retreats at the main house. Together they offer Eva's Roost for you to enjoy - a cozy cabin all your own.
    Enjoy your own place while having access to gardens, trails, & pond. Guests are welcome to help in the gardens or participate in yoga, meditation, retreats or other seasonal activities such as tapping maple trees, drying herbs, infusing oils, laying stone and more. Just ask! The peaceful, natural setting is perfect for writers, artists, musicians and anyone needing some time out from their regular routine. The cottage is simple with a woodstove, bathroom with shower, sitting area and double bed. A small kitchen(toaster oven, hotplate, kettle, coffeemaker, dishes & basic cooking supplies) doubles as a storm shelter if ever needed. Electric heat is available for winter and air conditioner for summer. The pond room fan is set to push warm air down in winter and draw cool air up in summer. You'll find it's remote on the wall. During the coldest part of winter (December-February) the heaters alone are usually not enough to keep the cabin toasty so the woodstove is a must. Guests are welcome to use the kitchen at the main house if they are wanting to use a large oven or gas stove. If you need assistance in learning to start and maintain a fire, Paul or Bonnie can show you how. Eventually their will be a screened in porch to sit out in the evenings by the pond. Currently, there is an outdoor fire pit with adirondack chairs facing the pond. Those interested in architecture, creative spaces & naturally wild settings will especially love Center For Lost Arts and Eva's Roost.
    Southernmost Illinois is a unique part of the State. Rock formations abound, the Shawnee National forest surrounds us and the rolling hills, small farms, wineries, orchards and quirky & quaint towns add to the charm and interest of the area. We are a few minutes from Cobden, ten minutes from either Alto Pass(Bald Knob), Anna or the now infamous town of Makanda. Carbonale is twenty minutes and Murphysboro about 30 minutes. Giant City Park is fifteen minutes one way and Trail of Tears is about the same distance the other. Many overlooks, trails, rock climbing areas plus not far to go kayaking or canoeing. Art and music everywhere whether it be at the wineries, The Old Feed Store, local galleries and other venues. We own Packrats Paradise Antique Mall which also sells local and handcrafted items. Cobden has some very good restaurants we're happy to recommend. Others in nearby towns we can suggest as well. Let us know your interests and we can make suggestions or recommendations. There is a binder at the roost with lots of information.
  • The cabin was a perfect retreat for our small family. We had everything we needed to be cozy and comfortable while we unplugged and enjoyed a few days taking in the natural beauty around us. Out our windows we were able to observe lots of birds and other creatures. It was magical! Bonnie and Paul were attentive and helped us whenever needed and otherwise we were left to enjoy ourselves.

    Melissa2020-02-23T00:00:00Z

This cabin in the woods has So much thought and heart poured into it! Highly recommended!! We will be returning, as soon as it opens up again!!

  • My husband and I spent the most peaceful and relaxing weekend at the farmhouse! Peter and his family are incredible hosts, they make you feel so comfortable and are available at anytime. The location is perfect and nestled away from everything. It is so warm and cozy... you will never want to leave! You are close enough to main street and numerous wineries, should you decide to venture out and about. There are also plenty of outdoor activities in the area. We can't wait to return in the spring!!

    Nicole2020-01-20T00:00:00Z
  • The farmhouse was lovely and in an excellent location! Not too far out of town but secluded enough to feel very private and homey- we loved it!

    Sierra2019-12-15T00:00:00Z

    Sarah2019-11-17T00:00:00Z

I would recommend this spot over any 'in town' hotel or Airbnb apartment as its a very short drive into Carbondale. The owners are exceptionally attentive to any and every detail you may need and make you feel like you are truely at home!

    Michelle2019-11-08T00:00:00Z

    This unique room is so beautiful and spa-like. It has a jetted, deep soaker bathtub in the room and does not have a separate shower. The tub has a shower spray handle and is oh so luxurious. It has a comfy loveseat, twin daybed, and a round kitchen table. The private en-suite includes a sink and toilet. This room really does have everything you need if you don’t mind not having a conventional shower.
    We are on the famous Shawnee Hills Wine Trail and are close to wineries, lakes and hiking trails. You can also stay in and have coffee in the greenhouse. Or sit on the covered patio on the porch swing. Fish off the dock. Bird watch. Turtle watch. Pedal boat around the lake. Visit. Find a treasure in our gift shop. Sit by the fire pit. RELAX! All of the bedrooms have a private entrance code and will lock for your privacy. Each bedroom has their own adjustable thermostat with no restrictions.

  • Victoria and John are incredible hosts. I was extremely comfortable at their place. Thay were really gracious and kind to me. They are fun to be around and their home is a lovely place to stay. To top that, their dogs are the best. These cuties are extremely friendly and you will instantly fall in love with them. Definitely recommend staying with them. Would love to re-visit!

    Riya2020-01-22T00:00:00Z

    Windy Hill Acres Inn is a 5 room cottage built in the 1840's out of local rock. It was used for many years as a potato house. The farmers stored their sweet potatoes during the winter, and would ship them to market in winter months. That way the farmer had a cash crop until spring. The cottage was made into a residence in early 1950, and used as a home for Bob's sister and husband until 2003 . .
    When you book our Inn you are in the country, but really only 1 mile to a couple nice restaurants, and you are right on the wine trail.
    We are very proud to be 8 miles from Giant City Park, and Lodge, 8 miles from Bald Knob Cross of Peace. You can be in Carbondale in less than 15 min. to the north, and 5 miles south to Anna.
  • Cozy cottage and great location. There is plenty to do and see in the area but not a lot of options for dining out. Be sure to bring supplies to eat in.

    Cheryl2019-12-29T00:00:00Z
  • This is a quiet gem. Located just outside of the village of Cobden, walking distance for the adventurous, this 52 acre retreat is just what the doctor ordered for anyone who thrives on solitude and nature. From the "Strawberry Fields Forever," to the lovely pond, and the warm and hospitable personalities of Carol and Bob, this country retreat is idyllic!

    Shane2019-09-24T00:00:00Z
  • This was a cute place close to town. Carol's check in was the best we ever had. She's a nice lady. The place was quiet and clean. I would highly recommend it.

  • We had a great stay at the Alto Wine Trail Loft! The place was beautiful, nice, clean, and in a great location. Brian was easy to communicate with and a great host. Thanks again, we will be back!

    Adrian2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • Super cute place! Brian is a great host! Checks on you, but doesn’t intrude! I love this place!!!

    Anne2020-02-13T00:00:00Z
  • This space met all of our needs for 3 couples over a long weekend visiting the Southern Illinois wine and beer trails. Between both units, we had enough bedrooms and bathrooms which were comfortable and private. There was plenty of parking and the checkin/out was a breeze with the keyless entry. The patio space on the back unit was a great addition where we could enjoy coffee in the morning or some drinks together to wind down the evening. Definitely would recommend and stay again. If you're a extremely sensitive sleeper be mindful that the floors are creaky when walked upon and there's light coming off what I think is a wall attached router.

    Emily2019-09-02T00:00:00Z
  • We had an amazing stay! Perfect for a large group, great location for visiting the winery’s and enjoying nature! The space was super super clean with everything we needed and Brian was very thorough in making sure we had a great time! I would absolutely recommend this property if you’re planning a trip to southern Illinois!

    Mattie2019-08-11T00:00:00Z
  • This place was fantastic and the host went above and beyond to accommodate our bachelorette party! The place is beautiful, beds are comfy, and perfectly located for hitting up the wine trails. There’s a convenience store just steps from the loft for anything you might need during your stay! Thanks again Brian!

    Dana2019-07-21T00:00:00Z
  • Place was very nice, in a good location to the winery's and local restaurants. Very cool the way it was remolded for being such an old building.

    The very large (13’ x 23’) cabin like room with chimney is in a conveniently located, vintage cabin type of house from the 1920’s, surrounded by nature. There are other rooms available in the house that can be fitted with air beds. It is located South of Southern Illinois University arena, near McDonalds and 2 gas stations ( Hucks and Shell), and on the way to several state parks (Giant City State Park, SIU Touch of Nature, Crab Orchard National Wildlife Refuge, Little Grassy Lake, etc).
    It is a quiet environment in a house shared by mature tenants.
    This neighborhood is in a relatively quiet and safe area of town, very close to convenient stores (Hucks, Shell) and Southern Illinois University, as well as on the way to several state parks (Giant City State Park, SIU Touch of Nature, Crab Orchard National Wildlife Refuge, Little Grassy Lake, among others a bit further) and local recreation areas (Evergreen park and lake). Fifteen minutes from Marion Veterans airport, 2 hours from Saint Louis, 5 from Chicago and 1 from Paducah.
  • Easy to find. Close to campus. Clean. Cozy. Comfortable. Great value proposition. All these things plus Bill’s hospitality and friendliness resulted in a wonderful stay. Will be back. Highly recommended!

    Drew2020-02-21T00:00:00Z
  • I had an amazing stay. The house was very clean and so was my room. Bill was very quick with his responses. My room was actually bigger than I thought. Overall I will be returning.

    Alexandria2019-12-16T00:00:00Z
  • Loved the cabin, will be back.

    Alexis2019-12-15T00:00:00Z
  • This was my stopping point from driving to Nebraska from Florida. A very earthy cabin feel, comfortable bed, hot shower, clean, a kitchen full of anything you need and to top it of a lovely view. My dog Sheila and I had a great nights sleep! I even rebooked to stay here on my way back from Nebraska! Will be back for trips to come.

    Alexis2019-12-11T00:00:00Z

  • This cabin is a wonderful place to get away to! We would've stayed for weeks if we could have. Perfect combination of amenities and very private. Beautiful view off the front porch- the perfect spot if you're looking for a place to sit and listen to nature for a few minutes.

    Emily2020-03-18T00:00:00Z
  • The Couples Retreat cabin was even better than expected. It was very clean, and well maintained. Roomy, but cozy. I loved the binder with the Rules and local info and tips. If you're looking for a cozy getaway for two, this cabin hits all the right notes. The hot tub is well maintained and clean. Hours were spent in it. The screened porch around it allows for enjoying the weather and natural area. The dryer ensured our suits and towels were dry for the next days use. I also loved the movie rack and board games!! I havent played Chess in years and it was used several times during our stay! The cabin is far enough away from everything to enjoy the peace, yet town is only a short drive if you wanted dining or entertainment options. There are 2 flat screens and Wifi. There is satellite tv as well, though we barely used it. Overall, we are ear-marking this set of cabins for future visits! Highly recommend

    Kevin2020-03-15T00:00:00Z
  • Fantastic place to get away with your love. Secluded and relaxing. We always enjoy our stays and wish we were staying longer.

    Jade2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • This is the perfect place for a weekend getaway. We love hanging out in the hot tub! Super private space and beautiful location.

    Shauna2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • The cabin is very clean and comfortable. It has everything you need. The kitchen is well stocked. The hot tub is great. It has a feel of being way out in the country, but it's an easy drive to Carbondale for shopping or restaurants. Also close to Giant City State Park. Beautiful park with a lot of hiking trails. We loved seeing and hearing the birds next door. Peacocks, turkeys and other birds. The farm cats are really sweet. We enjoyed watching the deer walking all around the property. We would stay here again.

    Sue2020-02-13T00:00:00Z
  • So nice and clean. Cozy and private with everything we needed for a relaxing weekend away.

    Tyson2020-02-09T00:00:00Z

    David2020-01-24T00:00:00Z
  • Very nice place to stay. The hot tub is wonderful. We arrived after dark and it was a little hard to find but very private and quiet. Would definitely stay here again. Thanks Jessica and to the neighbor who helped us find the cabin in the dark.

  • In and at bills i found a place where . the columbian coffee was served with filtered Water and the aroma was special and very unique. Im never going back to lesser quality. I have stayed at other hotels motels and of course. They never seemed like a home away From home. Not until i stayed at bills did i know of such a great place. Not only is there Good company but its also near to everything with a country view to boot ! Over an acre In which bill makes great use of his actually P.h.d in science of living things. He recycles. He compost. He simply loves to see things to grow and bare fruit. He makes of conversation. If your in need and if not. He will Respect and let you be. Be sure to pay attention to williams tree. Located at the entrance. Of it. I wrote the following. Because He and it inspired me. If you decide to stay at rbills. Please say. John duke desribed and suggested the stay. What i wrote is this. Forgive my grammer. Williams tree ! Things are free but not this tree . do not mistake it for an eyesore. For children have played and swung from its branches. Bills girls mia and michelle. Its a dream weaver and made me a believer in a human spirit that exist in a story. Like this. For if you look very close. It is perhaps.. Shaped like the hand of the man That planted the seed in or about the 1920s. When bills bungalow cabin like house was originally built and then moved to the top of bills hill in fact. A lot of work it took to do that in the 50s. As in history repeats. Take a moment to admire and leave a wishful note for yourself or most anyone in need. This and that is what folklore is all about. Sharing your own stories dreams and tells to the tree. Bill wishes you will come and see on your visit here. The tree will never tell or share stories. Its a therapeutic tool . use it and please be kind to everyone that will never find williams tree. Written by John. Johny duke. Find my Facebook page for all artist to write draw and share all their interest. Please share the news of bills tree hospitality and indeed as well. My fb page. Called. Bright ideas in the dark @ Jdpiledriver. Enjoy your stay at bills.

Thank you so much, kept me from sleeping in the car lol! House was very clean, and the beds were exceedingly comfortable. There was even some food for breakfast, and coffee on hand. Thank you so much! You made such a difficult trip bearable!

  • The house is a great space and had everything we needed for 3 adults and 3 small children to stay comfortably. The host went above and beyond and even secured a Pack n Play for our baby to sleep in, which was amazing. We were attending a reunion in Carbondale and it was only a 15 minute drive to get there. The coffee & milk provided really made our morning after such a long day of travel. We’d recommend this spot to anyone who needs a comfortable and cozy place to stay in the area.

    Crystal2019-11-25T00:00:00Z
