|Minimum Stay||2 - 4 nights|
On the wine trail and close to all the outdoor activities and lakes. Just 1.5 miles to Giant city, 15 minutes to carbondale and SIU. This is not a small uncomfortable rental cabin.
The home is a real log and timber frame home built in 2010. With a large deck and screened sun porch you can relax and enjoy the views and sunset. 2000 square feet with 3 bedroom, loft full full kitchen and 2.5 bathrooms. Its a rustic location but a luxury home. Sleeps 6-8 comfortably. Two Queen bed, One king bed and queen futon in the loft, can also sleep two kids on the large daybed sofa. We have a fire pit and wood outside for a nice campfire.
We have moved temporary and are sharing our dream home until we return.
Tim purchased this estate in 2010
You will not find a more relaxing place to stay.
Real Log and timber frame construction, cathedral ceilings and enclosed porch, large deck. Outside you have a professional gas BBQ and fire ring. Complete privacy and quiet.
The location of the cabin is amazing and tranquil. Easy to find if you follow the owners directions. The cabin is cozy and feels less like a house and more like a rustic cabin, which we wanted.
A few items to note-upon arrival the propane tanks were empty and we needed to sweep up dead flies/bugs all around the windows so our toddlers didn't play with them. The kitchen is listed as having everything but there are a few essential items that would be nice to have, like baking sheet and wine opener. There was one broken burner on the oven and the toaster wasn't working. Hand soap wasn't refilled just watered down. Having some kitchen towels/wash clothes would be useful.
Overall our stay was good, we improvised on a few things and the owner reimbursed us for the propane. We came with young kids, so having a well equipped place was sort of essential. The kids had a blast exploring the property, fishing, sitting by the campfire.
I would recommend this location. It was secluded and beautiful view. Even saw deer drinking from the pond in the morning. Relaxing and worth it. No trouble with the check in and out. I would recommend the signs with instructions inside the home be updated and fix grammatical errors but overall wonderful!
When we turned onto the road leading to the cabin, we both already knew we were going to love this place. It is a narrow wooded lane tucked back in the Shawnee forest. The private drive was tucked back a little to reveal a beautiful cabin. As we entered the cabin, we were very pleased. It is a very clean and gorgeously decorated home. Everything you need is right there from a fully stocked kitchen to basic toiletries. We both enjoyed relaxing on the deck as we saw deer, turkey and geese every day we were there. The convenience of the location is actually great, close to the wine trail and just a few minutes from Carbondale. We recommend this cozy cabin to anyone looking for a quiet secluded getaway. The owners made the renting experience very pleasant and easy.
Great way to spend a weekend or week super nice place can't wait to get back.
Clean, Well furnished, Beautiful setting. I am looking forward to booking my next stay at this cabin.
Cabin is beautiful and well maintained. The view is spectacular. The location is fabulous, making it easy to enjoy the Wine Train, Giant City Park, and SIU. Would definitely stay here again.
On the wine trail and one mile to giant city park.
