Love nature? You’ll love this one!
Toms wooded cabin was perfect for us. I love being in the woods yet yet having the conveniences this place offers! It was very close to Giant City which I believe is the best State Park in Illinois. We hiked there numerous times and also golfed at Keller’s Crossing which is a scenic golf course on the edge of Shawnee National Forest. Loved the pinball game on a rainy day! The place was clean and cozy.
Great time at a lovely cabin in the woods!
The cabin was very nice and clean. Comfortable beds and lovely setting. Close to restaurants and shopping. Enjoyed some southern Illinois wineries!

Tom was a great, welcoming host - and responded quickly to clear downed trees after storm. Nice to be in the woods but quickly could be in Carbondale. Glad we could have our dog with us.
