If you think you might be seeing a duplicate listing, you are not! We, "Dam Near Lake of Egypt Cabins" (pun intended), have 2 identical cabins just for you!
This cabin, called The Yellow Door cabin, is a sleek and modern new cabin built in 2018. Tiny house lovers will be very impressed with the well-appointed layout of this 560 square foot cabin. The cabins were designed by local talent and built on-site by the owners. Therefore we take a ridiculous amount of pride in every detail of your stay from cleanliness to hospitality.
One of our best features is that we are centrally located to all things "southern Illinois". Most importantly, we are just 4 miles from the I-57 and I-24 split, making it easy access for you. Our most favorite summer feature, Lake of Egypt is only 1/2 mile away. Within a 30 minute drive you can find yourself hiking and finding waterfalls at Ferne Clyffe State Park and Giant City State Park, biking though a 1/2 mile tunnel on the Tunnel Hill Bike Trail, or sipping wine at 5-6 different wineries including Blue Sky, Starview, Honker Hill, Katy-Lynn, Bella T, Walker's Bluff. We are official members of the Shawnee Hills Wine Trail Lodging Association. We also have some amazing up and coming micro brews nearby. Garden of the Gods is exactly 1 hour car ride, with plenty of great stops along the way.
You may have notice this is a one bedroom that sleeps 6. Ideally, the cabins were meant for couples and couples, like ourselves with small children. The sleeping arrangements are as follows: 1 queen bed in the bedroom, 1 queen in the loft (sleeping room only) and 2 twin futons that fold out from the living room chairs. We have had many groups of 6 adults in one cabin, but please consider your group for the ideal set up. Remember, we have an identical cabin and you can rent both at the same time if that suites your needs better.
Did I mention we are pet friendly? Let's talk about that (skip this paragraph if you could care less- BUT know we charge extra because we make the cabin so clean that you would think we do not allow pets.) We love pets. We have too many ourselves. Here are the things to note: We do not limit dog size or breed. Please note that our dog, Ariel lives on the premise and is a free-range farm dog. We also charge $30 per pet, per stay. If you plan to leave your pet unaccompanied, we have a large create for you to use.
