Wish I had found this place sooner
This was the most relaxing visit to Carbondale I've had. Close and convenient to campus, and great place to hang out. Way better than local hotel options if you have a kid at SIU and a dog. FYI, no wifi in cabin 3.
The owner Tom couldn’t of been more accommodating- he gave us tips of places to eat and things to see. The cabin is in a very peaceful setting the only downfall we never fished his lake - maybe next time.
The cabin is secluded, yet less than 10 minutes from the town. The lake is awesome! Tom met me at the cabin when I arrived. He gave me a ride on his golf cart and showed me the lake. There is a boat and kayak available to the renters. We had a blast fishing and caught a lot of blue gill. Tom is an excellent host and I highly recommend staying at his properties!
Cozy, adorable, wonderful
My husband and I stayed here for a weekend getaway and had a wonderful time! Our cabin, cabin #3 was amazing. So cozy, clean and the pinball machine was my hubbys favorote! Tom was also a great host, very accommodating. We had a wonderful time and look forward to returning!
You guys were great guests and will be welcomed back anytime.
Great place to stay.
Tom is a great guy. I will be staying here again.
