About the property

When you book your stay at MoJo Valley, you are guaranteed an enjoyable stay. Each reservation comes with one dozen farm fresh eggs from hens found on the property. The home comes with a queen bed and a sleeper sofa, as well as a full kitchen and bath. The home will be furnished with basic pantry items, a half gallon of milk, and orange juice. The nearest grocery store is approximately 15 minutes away and the nearest winery is just over a mile.

This home is located on our 21-acre, wooded property and our home is a short walk away (400 ft). While it is not visible due to the woods, we are available if needed. When you arrive, you will be given keys to the property and we will not bother you unless our assistance is needed. The cottage does not come with wifi or a television.

The home is located less than a mile-and-a-half from Blue Sky Winery and less than five miles from Owl Creek Vineyard. The Shawnee Hills Wine Trail is located just half-a-mile from the home.

Perfect place to enjoy the outdoors and unplug for the weekend. Beautiful cozy cabin.

  • 5 of 5

It’s very clear the owners want their guest to feel comfortable and at home. Cute cabin and very close to the wine trail and hiking.

Very pretty, quiet, and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

We came down to southern Illinois for a wedding and stayed at the cottage. It is very secluded and next to the wineries. I would highly recommend the cottage for a nice getaway.

MoJo Valley cottage is located just nine miles from the small town of Cobden, home of amazing restaurants like Yellow Moon Cafe (brunch and dinner hot spot) and Taqueria Paquena (authentic Mexican fare). You will also come across Anthill Gallery, a wonderful location for locally created art. If looking for fun in a natural setting, the cottage is less than ten minutes from Giant City State Park. Full of hiking trails, horseback riding, and Giant City Lodge, the park is a great location for families and couples alike. Guests can also visit Little Grassy Lake Campground and Marina, where you will be able to rent pontoon boats, kayaks, and paddle boards for a day on the lake. Ziplining is also available at the Shawnee Bluffs Canopy Tour, a short 14 minutes away. Wine lovers can also find their place in the area, as the cottage is located just off the Shawnee Hills Wine Trail. Within five miles, guests can visit three of the top wineries in southern Illinois, Owl Creek Vineyard and Brewery, Blue Sky Winery, and Star View Vineyards. So much to do in so little time!
