I cannot say enough good things about our stay at the Havisham Carriage House. The house and property are absolutely beautiful and the property manager was extremely helpful and so nice. You felt welcome before even arriving at the house. It definitely made our Girls Weekend even better than anticipated! I would highly recommend The Havisham House to anyone looking to stay and enjoy the Shawnee Wine Trail.
Gem in the Heart of Shawnee Hills with 5 Reasons to Rent
Located in the middle of Shawnee Hills Wine Trail, we enjoyed our get-a-way to the Carriage House and found a hidden gem worth sharing. The property had
1) Effortless and immediate access for the duration of our stay
2) Cute, clean, and open living spaces perfect for wine drinking, card/game playing, and relaxing with your special someone
3) Comfortable bed and full bath in each of the two rooms
4) Charming back patio with dining set and steel fire pit outside the downstairs bedroom with seating for 6
5) Great location with quick drive to all the local wineries on the wine trail and other local gems**
**We recommend a visit to Lincoln Heritage Winery (5 min north of Anna, IL), Kiki’s Coffee House in Anna, IL (delicious white maple mocha), Kite Hill Winery for a wine slushy, and Mase’s Place in Pomona, IL (worth the curvy drive).
We rented the carriage house for a base for our Southern Illinois Wine Country weekend. The location was perfect. The carriage house had two bedrooms (one upstairs with bath and the other downstairs with bath and entry onto patio area). The house was very clean, beds comfortable and everything in great condition. We were warned about spotty phone service unless you have Verizon and fortunately we had one Verizon phone. The free internet allowed text messages from non Verizon phones. Jerri, the owner gave us recommendations on restaurants in the area, orchards, etc and was very responsive. They also own another house on the property and as it was not rented, we were allowed to view the home. OMG- pictures could never do it justice! We would certainly stay there again.
Thank you so very much for your positive review! I would love to host you again, any time!
Dan and his group were outstanding! I hope they book Havisham every year.
Just a beautifully restored property !!!! Love Love love!
The property is reminiscent of old times past with modern amenities and memorable charm.... Jerri was so accommodating and welcoming!!! This property was once in our family and was destroyed by a hurricane! Jerri restores it beyond its original glory and provides the updated amenities that modern patrons expect! A beautiful jewel in a tranquil location!!! I would love sharing this space with a group of friends and a bottle or
Twp of wine!!!
Susan, thank you for your positive review. It means a great deal, knowing your family's history in the home. I enjoyed hosting you and your family, and hope you stay again some day. I also appreciate how clean you left the house. Thank you again!
A beautiful gem in the heart of wine country
This place was so much more than we ever expected. It has that old time charm with up-to-date First class finishes. It's very spacious and allowed us to really relax and unwind! Can't wait to go back with family and friends!!
Scott, thank you for the positive review last year. I enjoyed hosting you and would love to again if you are ever back in southern Illinois.
