About the Property

2 story cedar sided Lodge with 4 bedroom 2 bath. Everything is brand new!

Located on 75 secluded acres on the Shawnee Wine Trail, Firefly Valley Lodge offers spectacular views and a peaceful setting for your getaway. The Lodge offers breathtaking views of nature to be enjoyed from the large wrap-around deck. For those cool evenings, a large oversized two-tiered custom fire pit is available to keep you warm after a long day on the wine trail. Located within a few miles of Blue Sky, Owl Creek, StarView and Orlandini wineries, the Lodge is on Rocky Comfort Road, right in the heart of Southern Illinois Wine Country.

Connected to our private property is 140 acres of the Shawnee National Forest. Hunting and hiking possibilities are endless at Firefly Valley. The Lodge is within minutes of Southern Illinois University, Giant City State Park, Devils Kitchen and Little Grassy lakes.

The Firefly Valley Lodge is a 2 story cedar sided Lodge. The 4 bedroom 2 bath house features a open concept living room and kitchen with a magnificent vaulted ceiling and beautiful hardwood flooring.
