Two Day Getaway
Everything was great. Photos don’t do the house or land justice. So private, peaceful and beautiful. Elizabeth was very easy to get in touch with and so nice and helpful. We would definitely return!
Had a lot of fun exploring. There are days worth of hiking and exploring within 20 miles
Great game room!
Very spacious. Beautiful countryside. Would like to stay here again.
My son, our dog and I loved our stay. Every we needed and it was close to all the hiking areas we wanted to check. So beautiful and peaceful we will definitely return.
Beautiful setting and very nice home!
If you're looking for a secluded place close to garden of the gods, we highly recommend this property. The house is big, clean and has some very nice amenities. The owners were also very nice and accessible.
Thank you so much Kristi. We enjoyed having you stay with us. Hopefully we'll see you again soon. Maybe in the fall when the colors are stunning......
We are minutes from the famous Garden of the Gods, Rim Rock and Pounds Hollow lake in the Shawnee National Forest area of southern Illinois.
In 2010 Marty & Elizabeth Canfarelli relocated to southern Illinois from the suburbs of Chicago. After a 25-year career building high rises in Chicago, Marty turned his attention to building something unique that would provide a venue for families and couples to make life long memories. In 2012 they opened Timber Ridge Outpost & Cabins, A treehouse and log cabin resort in the heart of the Illinois Ozarks. Marty & Elizabeth live on the property and enjoy meeting their guests and promoting this amazing area that is often referred to as “the best kept secret in Illinois”. Why not come down and see what its all about!
Elizabeth purchased this House in 2014
Why Elizabeth chose Elizabethtown
Timber Ridge Outpost & Cabins is ranked #1 in our area on TripAdvisor with almost 200 5 star reviews. We have been featured in the Saturday Evening Post (August 2016), Chicago Parent Going Places magazine (2012 & 2014 & 2017), on Cruisin' Illinois with Julian Cruz (WGN-TV spring 2013) as well as a long list of various blogs, regional publications and more. Come see what all the fuss is about and go home with memories to last a lifetime!
What makes this House unique
Enjoy wonderful sunrise and sunsets from the brand new 12' x 60' long covered back porch while overlooking the rolling hills of southern Illinois. Play a game of horseshoes or tether ball in the back yard. Relax in the hammocks or around a campfire (firewood supplied). You are just minutes away from the famous Garden of the Gods, Rim Rock, Pounds Hollow Lake and more. All guests check in at our new outpost store, Garden of the Gods Outpost; an ice cream and souvenir shop located at the foot of the Garden of the Gods Wilderness area in the Shawnee Forest. Unlike many cabin places, the owners, Marty and Elizabeth live on the property and are available if you need anything.
