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

Awesome relaxing getaway
We decided to visit Shawnee National Forrest on a whim instead of going to hike in Gatlinburg. It was a great choice. It was a nice change up.
The cabin was very nice and clean and had everything you need to relax. The Hot tub was great after some hiking and the two patios seemed new with plenty of seating options. The back patio had a grill we used both nights.
We took our toddler and he liked running outside and in the long halls. He loved the air hockey table too.
The area has some awesome sightseeing spots that are worth the trip in itself. Garden of the Gods, wow. The hosts were very friendly and nice in our interaction. Would consider visiting again to relax.
Great private getaway
The property was as advertised. It was clean, functional, comfortable and quiet. It was ideal for our family.
Very nice and clean place to stay. When we checked in we were given very good information about the residence and surrounding locations and also activities to do. Only complaint would be that the ad states 3-4 acres of privacy. Actual house location is within 100 yards of an intersection. We enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend it.
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.
