About Tana Ivitts
We have run a family owned business in Paducah, KY for 40 plus years. We both grew up in the Western KY area and have lived in the area our whole lives. We moved to Southern Illinois in 2014 and have been here ever since. We bought this cabin and completely renovated it in 2014. We are both outdoors enthusiast. We love to fishing, hunting, hiking, horse back riding, and ATV riding.
Tana Ivitts purchased this Lodge in 2014
Why Tana Ivitts chose Brookport
Our Cabin is centrally located on 100 Acres between Paducah, Metropolis, and Golconda. It is only 18 miles to any of the 3 locations. This property adjoins the Shawnee National Forest on the north and west side. There are trails from this property right onto the forest. The main road that runs by this property is the Ohio river scenic byway. This property is located 1 mile North of The Smithland lock and Dam. If peace and serenity are your idea of vacation this is your place. Very secluded with lots of wild life for viewing. It is not uncommon for whitetail deer to feed from the apple trees in the front yard. We are a short distance from The Southern Illinois Wine Trail and Garden of The Gods.
What makes this Lodge unique
From the moment that we laid eyes on the Rustic Log Cabin we knew we had found our home. It has 2 master suites one at each end of the house. Perfect for privacy when we have company. Enjoy your own private pool and Tiki Hut perfect for just 2 or entertaining as well. Our Cabin is perfectly nestled on the edge of the Shawnee National Forest. We love it and hope that you will to.

Tana and Jimmy were very helpful and more than accommodating. They were willing to assist us in any way possible when needed and without hesitation.
Amazing cabin with awesome amenities!
Our stay at this cabin was phenomenal! The reviews really don't do this property justice. You have to see it for yourself! The owners were so friendly and helpful! They made sure we had everything we needed and even went above and beyond to make our stay enjoyable. The pool and hot tub were awesome! Glad we got to enjoy the pool before the weather got cold. Everything on the property was immaculate and clean (i.e. the cabin, pool, hot tub, the grounds). Honestly, I was expecting to find spiderwebs or something since it's out in the middle of the Shawnee National Forest but I didn't see anything! Cleanest, neatest cabin I have ever stayed in! Not to mention all of the really cool wildlife you get to see. There were caterpillars, hummingbirds, horses (if you walk down the driveway a bit), etc. If you like the outdoors but still enjoy having modern amenities this is definitely the property for you! Also, Paducah, KY is only 25 minutes away so if you want to get out and go do something there is plenty to do nearby. We had an amazing time staying at this cabin and will definitely be back! But next time we're staying longer... Thank you for everything Tana and Jimmy!!!
Clean and spacious! We will be back.
Thank you for the great review. You all were great guests. We would love to have you back anytime. We give 10% discounts to our returning customers so make sure if you book with us again to remind me. We look forward to your return.

Amazing cabin in the woods
Excellent cabin with a wonderful property. The house is tucked back into the woods on a gorgeous property. We loved the pool/hot tub/deck and especially enjoyed looking out from the deck and seeing the pool, woods and water below. The house was cozy and had extremely comfortable beds. We enjoyed walks down to see the horses in the morning, swimming in the afternoon and hot tub and the pool table in the evening. The wildlife was wonderful to see each day and our daughter especially enjoyed the humming birds. Very spacious and met all of our needs. The owners were very accommodating and the trip was fantastic.
