About Brian Stone
I am a graduate of SIU and now the proud owner of the Alto Wine Trail Loft & BIG SKY CABINS.
Brian Stone purchased this Cabin in 2013
Why Brian Stone chose Alto Pass
I have chosen this location because it is in the Heart of The Wine Trail & Shawnee National Forest. It is also a short drive to Southern Illinois University, Giant City, Cedar Lake, Alto Vineyards, Trails End Lodge, Hedman Orchard and Vineyard, Broken Wheel Ranch, Gity Stables, Rustle Hill Vineyard.
What makes this Cabin unique
On the Wine Trail *In the heart of the Shawnee Forest *Less than a 3 miles from 3 vineyards. Borders 4300 acres of the Shawnee forest. The most private cabin you can rent on the wine trail. Star gazing is 100% amazing.
Sports & Adventure Activities
We absolutely loved the remote location, and practically lived on the spacious wrap-around deck all weekend. Brian was also great to work with. I highly recommend this place and hope to come back!
Great Cabin Retreat
Excellent cabin with privacy. The cabin is very comfortable and has all the necessities throughout the house. The pool table and laundry facilities are an added bonus.
Property was perfect for family of 8!
We gathered for a family weekend getaway with 8 adults. The property was perfect from the amount of rooms, very clean property, comfy beds and game room with a pool table and a classic video game! The long table in the kitchen was perfect for games! The only con was not enough hot water for all of us to shower. We would definitely stay here again and already have begun planning. Location was secluded (which we liked) but still close to the area vineyards. Area attractions: All the wineries were amazing, dinner at the Trails End Lodge was delicious followed with karaoke and dancing. The local "cafe" Rootbeer Cafe, hmm we will skip this one on the next trip.
The property owner Brian is great! I highly recommend this property for a large party.
Nice southern Illinois cabin!
Had a awesome time! Close to national forest and just few minutes from vineyards!
Perfect family getaway!
We had our family Christmas at this property and it was perfect! 8 adults and 4 children ranging in ages 4-13 and we had plenty of room. The game room was a fun touch, as we all enjoyed the pool table and arcade games.
So much peace and so many stars!
The house and property are wonderful if you’re looking for somewhere to really feel away from too much noise and activity while still actually being within a reasonable distance of everything you could need. There’s plenty of room inside and out to either gather with family and friends or spread out a bit when you need some space. We also loved the sights and sounds of the wildlife in the area. Brian is also an incredible host. He is extremely communicative and made sure the house was clean and well supplied with the basic necessities. I’d definitively consider booking this property again.
