We really enjoyed our stay and in fact extended it by 1 day. The cabin was extremely relaxing and comfortable making our vacation complete.

Had a great time. Loved the property. Owner Tom was quick to accommodate any of our needs.

We love going down to Shawnee National Forest, my husband and I and our dog went we found this amazingly affordable cabin, close to SIU, and the hiking spots. It was perfect, we even extended our stay I already recommended it to some of our friends, family, and coworkers

What an incredible cabin and property. The family and Tom are such kind and wonderful hosts. I feel like I just left family, sad to leave but glad to return again soon.

Very convenient and unique property! Tom, and his Little helper Anthony, great people!

For my birthday, my partner and I decided to book Tom's cozy cabin for a little stay-cation with our pup. It was beyond amazing and surpassed all expectations. Check-in was extremely easy and we walked in the cabin doors to the fire already set up and going for us, setting the tone for our very cozy stay! The cabin had everything you would need - DVD player with a decent selection, stereo, coffee maker, kitchen supplies, and plenty of towels! There's no wifi, which was appealing to us! It allowed us to catch up with one another, connect with nature, practice some painting, and read those books that have been collecting dust in our home for some time! I can't put into words how much we enjoyed our stay. I would highly recommend Tom's cabin to friends/family and hope to return soon!

Third time renting a cabin from Tom and we had a fantastic stay. Owner was a hoot and easy to get ahold of, cabin/s were clean and cozy, close to state parks and other nice stops. We’ve been three times and will happily come back!

It was just what I needed. I appreciate the owners (Tom and Martha, a very nice couple indeed) allowing their space in the woods to be utilized. the cabin was warm. The fireplace was very nice. It area was quiet.

We love this place and would stay again. It was clean had everything we needed! Was rustic and private. Near Giant City Park, we loved hiking there and eating at the Giant City Lodge! I loved that my host was nearby and easy to get a hold of.

Our second time there, brought our dog both times, close to Town and the wine trail , hiking and water spots. Rented a boat at lake of Egypt time had a great time. Tom will help firewood or anything else you need. Thanks Tom, we'll be back

Unique cabin in the woods. Secluded but close to town. The host “Tom” was very accommodating.
