We have stayed here twice and enjoyed our stay both times. The cabin could use a little TLC but the location is close to the SIU campus. We love that we can bring our dog along when we visit our daughter at college. My husband loves the pinball machine. I'm sure we will stay here again.
Cabin 3 review
We enjoyed our stay. It was peaceful and relaxing. We were not able to view the night sky from our cabin, due to it being surrounded by trees. So we ventured elsewhere for star gazing. We were greeted by a wolf spider immediately upon entering the cabin, we had brought bug spray so we took care of that. 2 days.later, nearly walked into a huge spider web built overnight just outside the front door. Just giving a heads up, be on the lookout. You are in the woods!
Simple and relaxing
Cabin 3 was a clean and cozy getaway, for 2 people that work long hrs. Tom was easy to get along with and just a great all around guy! Would recommend his properties to anyone! We enjoyed our stay!
An Amazing Weekend
Everything was wonderful.,we had the best time! Tom is an enjoyable & down to earth individual who makes you feel at home on his property. We will return next year.
