*SOLAR ECLIPSE Note
NASA has the field behind us pinned for Greatest Duration for the 2017 solar eclipse. Until we know how we are going to approach this we are not taking any requests for reservations. When we know what we are doing we will list it on our website and here on VRBO.
Since it is so beautiful where we are, we would love to have you stay with us at other times. :)

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: Long time residents of the area, our desire is to share our love for the beautiful, diverse, and unique surroundings of southern Illinois. The love of the land is also one of the inspirations to build the cabins at Rocky Comfort Cabins with solar powered lighting and TVs and solar heated water. We're partially off the grid! If you're a hiker, Ed can give you some great tips and destination spots. Waterfalls, lakes, canyons, fishing - just ask! More into wine and relaxation? We like that too, so our cabins are located where choices are at your fingertips!

Why the Owner Chose Makanda, IL, USA:
Rocky Comfort Cabins was built to be part of the landscape. The area around Rocky Comfort Cabins is rich in wildlife, close to towns, but far enough away to feel secluded, and within a short walk to Blue Sky Vineyard and short drive to Shawnee Bluffs Canopy Tour, the first zip line adventure in Southern Illinois. When you and your family sit on the porch as the sun goes down, your worries and cares will evaporate with the day light. The clear sky at night will allow you to see and share the constellations with your children. Escape the city and the stress and come stay with Rocky Comfort Cabins.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
Rocky Comfort Cabins is the only cabin rental in Southern Illinois to utilize solar power for our eco-friendly cabin rentals. Our cabins have the lowest impact on the area surrounding the cabins, allowing you to enjoy all that Southern Illinois nature can offer. We are also located in the heart of the Shawnee National Forest, so you will feel as if you have your own private retreat. Want more adventure? Shawnee Bluffs Canopy tour is just down the road and the Shawnee Hills Wine Trail passes by, with your first stop being Blue Sky Vineyard. Rocky Comfort Cabins offers you unparalleled access to all of Southern Illinois.
