Warm Family Gathering - Linda P., St. Louis, MO

  • 5 of 5

My mother grew up in Murphysboro so for her 80th birthday our entire family wanted a place to gather near her hometown for this special celebration. Big Sky Cabin was perfect!! The kitchen is large enough that several participated in meal prep, others did jigsaw puzzles at the big table and some hung out in the game room and watched football. The home is nestled in the woods just like the pictures suggest. We had a large enough group that we also rented the lofts in Alto Pass. These are more utilitarian but clean and modern looking. It was a short 7 min drive between the properties (once we figured out the correct GPS directions). It was very special family time without all the distractions. Brian was helpful in every way from booking to providing directions when we got lost.

A Slice of Southern IL Paradise - Josh R., Villa Park, IL

  • 5 of 5

Amazing is the word that comes to mind when recounting our recent stay at Big Sky Cabin. When you arrive at the cabin, the beautiful surrounding acreage, including the backdrop of the Shawnee national Forest, allows for all of your cares and worries to melt away into surrounding beauty of Southern Illinois. There is so much room to roam that the kids (6, 7 and 8) were more than occupied exploring the rolling hills that surround the cabin keeping them active and busy for hours. Between the outside fire pit and fishing pond, there is enough activity for adults and kids alike. The cabin itself is anything but, as it is super clean, furnished with attention to detail, which includes but is not limited to the sought after 80s arcade game machine that was a huge hit with all family members. Personally, I enjoy the rolling hills/roads that are right outside the cabin, which allows for both avid bikers and runners to ensure that they are getting their favorite form of exercise done even while relaxing on vacation. One of my favorite spots is LaRue Pines, which is in close proximity to the cabin and allows for great exploring opportunities with the payoff being a view of the Mississippi River in the distance. I would recommended this cabin and its very accommodating owner (Brian) to any folks that are looking for either a romantic getaway, a family vacation/reunion or a guys/girls fun weekend. Without question, the owner Brian is best owner that we have rented from on VRBO as he is incredibly dedicated to ensuring that all of your needs are met. Big Sky Cabin is not to be missed, you need to book your trip today!!

Great family getaway

  • 5 of 5

We rented the cabin after Christmas for a little rest and relaxation. We wanted to getaway from home and have a family getaway. The cabin and surrounding areas are beautiful. Coming from Northern Illinois, it's hard to believe we are in the same state. The cabin is very secluded, and away from the hustle and bustle of any urban areas. My boys were able to explore the property, fish in the pond, and have some great outdoor fun. We enjoyed the television room, and I was able to show off my 80's arcade game skills. The wine trail is nearby and there are some amazing vineyards. There's some great hiking at Giant City and other nearby parks. This place is perfect for a family getaway or adult vacation.

Beautiful and serene getaway!!

  • 5 of 5

Big Sky Cabin is perfect for a romantic getaway or a large gathering. I would highly recommend this property and we will definitely be booking again in the near future!

The location was beautiful, with rolling hills and woods. Tons of outdoor areas to enjoy, from a large deck, small back deck and a huge fire pit area.

The house and property were spotless and we found all the amenities that we expected and then some!

Brian was so helpful and always reachable. He is very personable and accommodating! Thanks Brian!!

Amazing Cabin in the Woods

  • 4 of 5

Overall an amazing cabin on a beautiful property. The jacuzzi tub was awesome and we loved hanging around the game room and shooting pool. I'm only holding back one star for not having wifi. I know it's difficult in the middle of nowhere but really for the price, there should be wifi, in my opinion. Brian was super nice and easy to work with. Loved it!
