About Lisa Smith - Listing Manager
Josh and Alexis have travelled all over the world, but they love to call Southern Illinois home! With three children and their various enterprises, they are a busy couple. Josh is originally from the area. After completing school he traveled Europe working as a chef. His love for food eventually turned toward organic farming, so in 2000, he and Alexis bought the 70 acre farm in Pomona. After renovating the properties and turning them into vacation rentals in 2009, Josh went on to play music in area bands and is now very involved in the region's entertainment industry helping to bring performers to the area. Alexis works as a stay-at-home mom, who also donates her time to many worthy causes in the Southern Illinois region.

Why Lisa Smith - Listing Manager chose Pomona
CornerStone Cabins was created in 2009 by Josh and Alexis Brown, but there's more to the story behind the farm on which it is located. We moved into The Loft in August of 2000, and it was there we started a family of our own. Within a few months we began planning for construction on The Barn to be our first Southern Illinois vacation rental. Originally a horse barn with dirt floors, we had a plan to turn The Barn into a place of comfort and luxury. In 2005, after a few years of work and two children later, we decided to move into The Barn. Considering our growing family and the creation of such an extraordinary cabin, we couldn't resist. With the most luxurious lodging on the Southern Illinois wine trail, CornerStone Cabins is looking to the future and growing to meet the needs of our guests. Though new to VRBO and HomeAway, we are thrilled to open the home to even more guests - meeting even more interesting people from all over! We want to thank all of the countless friends and family members that helped to create a place of beauty and relaxation for all to enjoy. It could not have been possible without your help. We would like to welcome you to your home away from home and we look forward to hosting your stay!
What makes this Cabin unique
The Loft and its sister property, The Barn (#898667), are situated to protect visitors' privacy while also being close enough to enjoy larger gatherings with everyone staying in close proximity to one another. If you are interested in booking both, please let us know. What our guests love most is our location! The scenery is gorgeous with rolling hills, lots of mature trees, a babbling creek nearby and lots of acreage in a safe rural location that is also convenient to town. There is so much to do in the area you'll want time to explore and see all the sites! That is why we have made weeklong stays so affordable!

Loved This Cabin
We had a lovely time staying at this cabin. It was so clean and spacious! I had stayed here before and it lived up to the pictures and description.
We aim to please! Thank you for staying and please come again!
Quiet, Serene, and Lovely
Four of us stayed here for a relaxing break from our everyday hustle. It was simply perfect. Close enough to run to town, but far enough away to escape. Lisa was fantastic about offering any help or answering any questions. The cabin was spotless and full of amenities. Seriously, stop searching and just book it. Thank me later. ;)
Thanks for the referral and kind review. We are so happy you enjoyed your time at the Loft! Please come again.
Girls weekend was a success! Loved the house! Had everything we needed! Weather wasn’t the best, but we enjoyed the quality girl time! Only thing is maybe some more comfortable furniture for the living area for movie watching! Thanks for sharing your adorable house can’t wait to return soon! Thanks
We are happy you enjoyed your stay. Thanks for the heads up about the seating. We are looking at options now to upgrade! We hope you get the opportunity to come back again soon.
Peace and quiet
We just returned from our third stay at the Loft. It has become our annual place of choice for our week long stay in southern Illinois with family and friends. The Loft is just the right size for our group, and provides an enjoyable week of rest and relaxation in a rural setting. The Loft has always been well kept, clean, and has all the amenities necessary to create a trip of lasting memories. We're already looking forward to return in 2019.
Thank you for the great review and the repeat stays. We appreciate it and look forward to having you again!
