About Angela and Chris Boyd
We are lifelong residents of Union County. Both sides of our family have owned businesses locally and been a part of the growth and tradition in our community. We have been blessed with the opportunity to become the new owners of The Goddard Place and continue the family tradition of being a small business owner. We look forward to sharing our peaceful retreat and the Southern Illinois area with our guests.
Angela and Chris Boyd purchased this Cabin in 2016
Why Angela and Chris Boyd chose Anna
We were intrigued by the beauty of the property from the large pond, abundant wildlife, lovely views and rural setting. This property was the first bed and breakfast in Union County. We are honored to continue the tradition of southern hospitality created by the previous owners. We have big shoes to fill. The ability to share our knowledge and love for this area with guests is exciting. We look forward to meeting so many new friends along the way.
What makes this Cabin unique
Letting the guests speak for us ~ Fay & Ray B. from Normal, Illinois said... This cabin is amazing. Simply beautiful. You have put a lot of thought into providing us with everything we need to feel at 'home'. The bed was so comfortable. I can't tell you how I LOVE that Jacuzzi! Love the 'hope' chest at the foot of the bed with extra blankets & pillows. You had everything you need for the kitchen. Your towels were wonderful...and so many of them was super. We loved having the Weber grill to be able to use. All the chairs outside & inside were very comfortable! The entire decor of the cabin is wonderful. You have a truly charming cabin here. We are already talking about when we want to come back.... Eve & Shannon C. from Mt. Zion, Illinois said... thank you for such a relaxing & wonderful stay. Such thoughtful consideration went into every detail here @ The Goddard Place ~ truly a piece of 'heaven on earth' Thanks for everything!!! Sandy, Lonnie & Nick P. from Solsberry, Indiana said...We truly enjoyed our stay here. The cabin & surroundings were amazing. Very informative of things to do around the area. Very peaceful, relaxing getaway. Loved the fishing. Everyone we met was very friendly. We hated to leave and wish this was our home. We will be back again. Thank you again for the amazing hospitality. Kayla & Allen C. from St. Charles, Missouri said...Everything was fantastic!! Your cabin is perfect & we caught a few nice Bass in your pond -one was 3.56 lbs. - We went to Giant City, Cache River, Ferne Clyffe, and Bald Knob Cross. We also hit Rustle Hill, Blue Sky and Von Jakob Wineries. The bread pudding at Blue Boar is great! Thanks for the recommendations of where to go! We had a great time!!

Loved the cabin. It wasn't as secluded as we had hoped for considering the owners house is right beside it, but it was very nice. They had everything ready and a book full of information of things around. Hope to go back!!

Property very well maintained, owners very accommodating. Very relaxing place. Would highly recommend a stay there!
Loved the location! Private setting but close enough to parks and wine trail!
Wanted to stay longer! The Jacuzzi tub and fire place were great after hiking all day. Sunrises over the back pond were an added bonus. Owners Chris and Angela are quick to respond to any questions and are close by if anything is needed.
Great location and hospitality!
The Goddard place is perfectly located for all the various activities there are to enjoy in southern Illinois. It’s a great place for couples and beautiful scenery to sit outside and enjoy while relaxing on site. Chris and Angela make everything simple from reservation to checkout. We will be staying at the Goddard Place for future visits to the area.
We didn't want to leave!
The only thing I regret was not booking earlier and having more time to spend here. Everything from booking to checking in exceeded my expectations. The cabin was in the perfect location to everything we want to do. I can't wait to come back and will definitely stay longer.
If you can dream it, you can do it in Southern Illinois! We are located in the middle of the Shawnee National Forest. Every type of outdoor recreation is just minutes away. Hike and rappel the bluffs at Giant City State Park, see Bald Knob Cross of Peace ~ the tallest Cross in the Western Hemisphere at 111 feet on one of the tallest peaks in Illinois at 1,000 feet, ride your bicycle on the Tunnel Hill Trail, visit one of the dozen Wineries on the Shawnee Hills Wine Trail, visit local antique shops, bring your fishing poles for bluegill, catfish, bass and more right out your back door, there are World Class hunting opportunities for deer, ducks and geese and small game, you name it, it's here waiting for you! Or if you prefer, cozy up by the fire and relax!!!
