About the property

Beautiful, New 2 bedroom, 2 bath on Shawnee Wine Trail near Alto Pass

Newly constructed So. Illinois cabin on the Shawnee Wine Trail. Just north of Alto Pass and only minutes from any of the Shawnee's abundant activities. Cave Creek Cabins are perfect for a multi couple getaway, a pre-wedding event or family outing. Roomy 1500 sq ft cabin can sleep up to 8 guests, with a full kitchen and two full baths. Beautiful custom reclaimed wood features and furniture throughout make the cabin unique. Cabin is multi level with 2 large covered decks overlooking Cave Creek. Kitchen, dining for 8 and living area with gas fireplace on entry level. Bedroom, with queen bed, bath and a sleeper sofa on each level. Family area, board games, game table, DVD/CD player on lower level. Dusk to dawn security light illuminates parking area and cabin entry. Because we are recent construction, our landscaping is still limited. However, the fire pit with grilling area and creek are naturally rocky, so there is plenty of room to wander. Just off Highway 127 on a quiet country lane, our 3 acre wooded property is located in the midst of orchard property making it a tranquil setting. Setting on the deck, listening to Cave Creek babble will give you the sense of peace you may be looking for. The cabin is only a short drive from Bald Knob, the most prominent elevation in So. Illinois, for a spectacular multi state view or unforgettable sunrise. We believe you will love what Cave Creek has to offer.

About Roger

Raised in rural Southern Illinois in a family that loved to camp and fish, I enjoyed the beauty of this region long before attending SIU. In adult life, I've been both a home builder and a woodworker. I also love good wine, good food and meeting people. And that's how the vision for Cave Creek Cabins emerged. The home builder wanted the cabins functional and comfortable. The woodworker wanted the beautiful wood features. But mostly, I wanted a great place for people to gather and relax.

Relaxing comfortable stay

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful nicely decorated cabin with top of the line appliances . We enjoyed sitting on the deck in the morning with our cup of coffee listening to the outdoors the stream from the creek and birds in the trees. In the evening hanging out by the campfire is where our family gathered . The owners went over and beyond to welcome us and make our stay perfect. Thank you for everything and for the time we got to spend together for my sons graduation from SIU . ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Car: necessary

On the western side of the Shawnee Wine Trail, we are just outside Alto Pass and close to Bald Knob Cross of Peace. Cave Creek Cabins are located between Pomona Natural Bridge and Trail of Tears State Parks. Close to great hiking at the Little Grand Canyon or good fishing at Cedar Lake. Cedar Lake also has a great hiking trail around the lake with beautiful views, bluffs and a waterfall after the rain. If you are a thrill seeker, there is a great Zip Line Adventure close by in the Shawnee or learn to repel in Giant City State Park. You could go horseback riding or take a pottery class at nearby Alto Pass Clay Works. Enjoy the harvest bounty from our neighbors at the Rendleman Orchard Farm Store, where you can get fresh picked produce (or maybe just some famous apple cider donuts) in season. Did you know there was a Darn Hot Pepper farm and a lavender farm close by? There are also several good golf courses in our region. And in the summer you could take in a Southern Illinois Miners baseball game. On August 21, 2017, join us in Southern Illinois for prime viewing of the total Eclipse. So in addition to the great wineries and growing number of breweries, there are a lot of activities to enjoy in Southernmost Illinois. Come and visit us soon.
