About the Property

House, 2 Bedrooms + Loft, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-6)

Escape to the hills of Alto Pass! Drive to the top of Bald Knob Mountain. Gaze out over the valley from Cliff View Park and drive the Scenic Circle of Alto Pass. Explore the surrounding Shawnee National Forest - Pomona Natural Bridge, Little Grand Canyon and LaRue Pine Hills nearby. See beautiful Giant City State Park and the grand lodge built by the CCC. Check out the Cache River Wetlands with 1,000 year old Cypress trees. Discover the natural beauty that is southernmost Illinois.

Enjoy our nearby wineries and vineyards with award winning wines and tasting rooms plus entertainment from local musicians, dinner theatres and summertime or fall festivals along the Shawnee Hills Wine Trail. Shop our antique, craft and specialty shops in Alto Pass. Visit our local orchards for apples, peaches, nectarines, strawberries, blueberries and so much more seasonal produce. Fish or swim in Cedar Lake and and boat in numerous other lakes. Plus there is so much more if you like golfing, bird watching, biking, hunting, boating, and horseback riding.

Then relax in the quiet, peaceful and private setting of the Alto Guest House, a southern Illinois vacation house/cabin rental. We've completely renovated a small cozy and quaint house and transformed it into a lively, contemporary larger space. We added more room with high ceilings and gave it lots of natural light.

Two bedrooms with one queen and two twin beds. A loft is available with two twin inflatable mattresses. Kitchen has microwave, electric stove, dishwasher, refrigerator and some small appliances. The dining area comfortably sits six people. The large 24 x 8 foot deck spans the rear of the house overlooking the fenced-in yard and the woodlands below. Outdoor spa/hot tub private with deck. A Southern Illinois Cabin Vacation Rental.

Great fenced-in yard for your dog.

Directions: 15 miles from Carbondale, the Alto Guest House is located just outside the Village of Alto Pass. From Alto Pass go west towards Bald Knob. The Peach Barn will be on your right. Stay on the road to your right, Milligan Hill Road, for about two miles. There is a sign "Alto Guest House" right next to the driveway.

We are 15 miles SW of Southern Illinois University at Carbondale.
