Property description

*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. :)

Spacious yet cozy romantic luxury vacation getaway for two. The two can be lovers, friends, family...it doesn't matter to us. The bed is big, the bathroom is accessible only through a hall off the bedroom, and the place is splendid.
Guests of the Cove have a private trail that meanders through the short stretch of woods to Blue Sky Vineyard.
We currently have two "Hobbit" style homes at Rocky Comfort Cabins. You can book The Cove here on VRBO.

Wrap yourself in our PLUSH SPA ROBES and step out onto your private patio just off the exquisite bedroom. Enjoy a relaxing soak in the four person hot tub while surrounded by woods, fields, and prairie.

An arched opening between the living room and bedroom allows you to view the beautiful, fully vented gas fireplace from your decadently comfortable king size bed (for an incredible night's sleep).

Leather furniture with a full recline power loveseat in the living room and leather recline reading corner.

Nine foot ceilings, arched walls, and romantic, dimmable lighting give this unique and spacious one bedroom cottage a luxurious, cozy, romantic ambiance. Sun tunnels cast natural light in the living room, kitchen, and roomy bathroom.

Round windows and wood detailing along with many more touches set this cottage apart from all the rest.

Enjoy fresh gourmet coffee with our whole coffee beans and grinder. Weekend guests and stays over four days receive farm fresh organic eggs and breakfast snack.

Partially off the grid with solar powered lighting and TV.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: 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.

Why the Owner Chose Makanda, IL, USA:
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.
