About Bryanna Ramsey
I grew up in Southern Illinois. I am a school teacher and I enjoys gardening in my flowerbeds and feeding the birds in the backyard. I love living on Lake of Egypt and enjoy a nice quite evening pontoon ride around the lake. I enjoy eating dinner out on our screened-in porch with my sweet dachshund, Allie watching the deer, chipmunks, and squirrels.
Bryanna Ramsey purchased this Guest House in 2015
Why Bryanna Ramsey chose Goreville
The close proximity to the Shawnee national forest, wine trails, lakefront and state parks made this a perfect location. The view from our back yard was all it took to know that this was the home for us!

A short memorable stay... full of hospitality.
Bryanna and her husband Paul were fantastic hosts. I am fighting the desire to give an unflattering review just so I might improve our chances to stay there again; however, I cant do it.
We requested the home on a very short notice and Bryanna was quick with her response and the hospitality and friendliness were right behind. She baked scrumptious cookies which my brothers ate overnight. She texted me places to find snacks late at night.
Paul took time to map out fishing spots for us to try on his computer.
We relaxed, enjoyed the very unique setting "The Rock" provided and were sad to leave. The backyard is a wonderful wilderness setting with a trail to the boat dock and the house is VERY clean, private and inviting.
I feel that you would like to have Bryanna and Paul as neighbors.
We will definitely return for a longer stay. It was a blast.
Thank you so much for opening your home to us.
Sincerely, The Bacon's
You don’t have to write an unfavorable review to get to return. Paul and I would love to have the 3 of you back. And bring your 4th brother with you too! You guys were a lot of fun and had a great sense of humor. We would enjoy hosting you all back sometime soon when you can stay a little longer! Great meeting the Bacon Brothers!
Our stay at The Rock.
What a great time we had staying at The Rock. It was a very nice and very clean place to stay. The view was beautiful from the deck. The owners were fantastic. It all made for a great experience.
Clean Clean Clean
Bryanna and Paul were great ,very friendly .the place was super clean and well stocked with any thing you could possibly need.Its not easy walking anywhere but it is secluded and quiet.its a rough walk to the dock and back but its a very nice dock with a fish cleaning station i was able to use multiple time during our stay.Paul even gave me some help finding some brushpiles to fish.We stayed through the week and the lake was really calm.overall we really enjoyed the stay.
Owners are very nice. I am naturally very hot and it was inconvenient to not control the temperature in the basement. The owners live upstairs and when they aren’t home their dog barks nonstop. There isn’t a kitchen and we had to wash dishes in bathroom sink. There is a very small refrigerator to keep food. We weren’t able to rent a boat so swimming off their dock was great! We enjoyed our stay. We felt bad when leaving because their trash cans were full so we weren’t able to take our trash out.
Denise, We are sorry to hear that you were disappointed in the kitchen area, but we are very upfront and straight forward in the description and pictures of our amenities. If you would of read carefully the property description and looked at the pictures, it clearly shows the size of the frig and the sink. We are extremely serious and mindful about our guest and their needs. We have never had any complaints about the basement being too warm. It has always been cooler than upstairs. It is a house with one unit. As for our pet, we have had many guest over the past several years and never had a problem. Normally, she only barks if someone comes to the door. I apologized to you that she barked on your first morning of your stay, and took care of it the rest of the your visit. The rest of the days that you were staying, I can assure you that you never heard her, because she was not there without us. So I find you comments a bit insulting. We also are not a commercial property, but a home. Our trash is taken once a week as most homes....every Tuesday morning. You left on a Monday. So if our trash cans were a little full it was due to the fact that we had 5 out of 7 filled with guest in our home. I apologize that your 4 cases of glass bottles didn't fit in the trash can. My recommendation for a more enjoyable VRBO stay next time would be to carefully read before selecting This will help to assure that you are getting all the amenities that your family needs. We wish you and your family well.
Paul and Bryanna made you feel like family. I could not be leave how they setup the apartment made you feel like you were at home. The boat bock was outstanding Paul gave us a idea were to fish we caught some its always nice to be on the water catching fish is a bonus. We had a outstanding stay hope to make it back soon. I had a problem with my Hummingbird electronics Paul helped me out. THANKS PAUL The ROCK is the place to be! Thanks again JohnK
Great place out in the country
Bryanna and Paul are awesome people. The property is VERY clean and if you're looking for a quiet place to get some rest, you could not ask for better. Fishing from shore or the dock is fun if you are looking for sun fish or blue gill. If you want bass or walleye, a boat is best. Google maps took me right to the property. There isn't much nearby so it's best to stock up on the provision you'll need during your stay. They do have a carport for quests and they sell ice as well. All in all, we had a great time!
