If you're looking for a secluded house in the woods this is it!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful secluded house in the woods with high ceilings and indoor and outdoor fireplaces. The host is terrific and the property he owns has its own lovely pond. Close to SIU and the Wine Trail and State park.

Convenient to Carbondale, yet great privacy

  • 4 of 5

We didn't stay in Cabin #3 (pictured)' but were upgraded by owner Tom to a nicer location and much bigger Cabin#1.

My wife and I enjoyed our stay very much.

Neat spot with all the amenities! (Reviewing big cabin)

  • 5 of 5

Tom blessed us with the big cabin after the one we initially wanted was already booked. Way more space than we needed, but was awesome to have access to the pool table and the top bedroom is awesome! Sure, it could certainly have been tidier, but we can give them the benefit of the doubt mid-winter and perhaps had we been paying full price, more effort would have been made. That said, we had a blast exploring and hiking the surrounding areas, and we wouldn't rule out returning. Just check those pinball machines. They took most of our quarters!

Rustic cabin in the woods.

  • 3 of 5

3 stars, could have been 4 however the front door was difficult to close and lock, overall cleanliness could be better. However if you are looking for a Rustic cabin in the woods that is close to Carbondale this is the get away you want. Pet friendly.

Nice, rustic, secluded cabin #3 in the woods.

  • 4 of 5

Very nice and laid back. We were in Cabin #3, check out Tom's other website for more info. This a very rustic outdoors setting not for the RV park people. Sort of like native camping but you get all the amenities of home. Most everthing worked and Tom lives on the property and takes care of anything you may need. Could not see any of the other cabins from ours. Only a few minutes from Cedar Lake and Carbondale. Book now for the 2017 eclipse :)
