About Tana Ivitts
We have run a family owned business in Paducah, KY for 40 plus years. We both grew up in the Western KY area and have lived in the area our whole lives. We moved to Southern Illinois in 2014 and have been here ever since. We bought this cabin and completely renovated it in 2014. We are both outdoors enthusiast. We love to fishing, hunting, hiking, horse back riding, and ATV riding.
Tana Ivitts purchased this Lodge in 2014
Why Tana Ivitts chose Brookport
Our Cabin is centrally located on 100 Acres between Paducah, Metropolis, and Golconda. It is only 18 miles to any of the 3 locations. This property adjoins the Shawnee National Forest on the north and west side. There are trails from this property right onto the forest. The main road that runs by this property is the Ohio river scenic byway. This property is located 1 mile North of The Smithland lock and Dam. If peace and serenity are your idea of vacation this is your place. Very secluded with lots of wild life for viewing. It is not uncommon for whitetail deer to feed from the apple trees in the front yard. We are a short distance from The Southern Illinois Wine Trail and Garden of The Gods.
What makes this Lodge unique
From the moment that we laid eyes on the Rustic Log Cabin we knew we had found our home. It has 2 master suites one at each end of the house. Perfect for privacy when we have company. Enjoy your own private pool and Tiki Hut perfect for just 2 or entertaining as well. Our Cabin is perfectly nestled on the edge of the Shawnee National Forest. We love it and hope that you will to.

Quiet, peaceful get-away
Privacy, next to woods, amazing wildlife, lots of extras. We had no trouble finding the place even though it is in the middle of nowhere, and were very excited to see it was just what we envisioned. The pool and hot tub were perfect. The pool table was lots of fun. Beautiful kitchen and laundry. Very comfy bed in the master and fantastic shower. We planned ahead and took food and didn't have to make the trip into town. We went up to Garden of the Gods one day and loved it - well worth the trip. No internet and cell phone connection was a little spotty, but that was no problem for us. It is a great place to unwind, relax and recharge.
Thank you so much for the kind review. We couldn't have asked for any better guests. We are so glad you enjoyed your stay at the cabin. Hope to see you all back some day.
Beautiful surrounding, great size pool, relaxing environment.
This was our first time staying here. The house was big enough for my large family of 6. It is clean and stocked well with bath and beach towels. There are lots of dear and humming birds in the area. There were also 2 horse's on the property that the kids enjoyed walking down to see everyday. The home is very private, it's literally in the middle of nowhere. There are 2 small towns about 40 minutes in each direction. So going to the grocery store before you get there is a must. The owners we're both really nice and professional. There is no WiFi so it was nice to see the kids hanging out without their phones in front of there faces the entire time. My family and I loved this vacation home. We have high hopes on staying here again. I highly recommend this vacation home.
We are so glad you choose to spend your vacation with us. We couldn't ask for better guests. We would love to have you all back. Thanks again.

Beautiful, Relaxing, Perfect!!!
I can't say enough about this home! The property is secluded and serene with plenty of wildlife to enjoy. The weather was hot so the pool was amazing! The home itself has plenty of room for people to not run into each other. The beds were comfortable and everything was very clean. I loved that there was a full size washer and dryer so I didn't have to worry about laundry when I got home. The kitchen was stocked with just about everything you could need. Tana and Jimmy had the fridge stocked with water, snacks on the counter, and two complimentary bottles of wine for us! We are already talking about coming back next year! Thank you both so much for opening your home to us!
Thank you so much. It was a pleasure meeting you all. We would love to have you back any time. We are so glad that you enjoyed your stay. We couldn't have asked for better guests.

A beautiful and relaxing place to stay
This was our second year here and we enjoyed it as much as the first. Tana and Jimmy are amazing hosts. You can tell they put their hearts into making a pleasant stay. Our first night we always eat at Mellow Mushroom Pizza in Paducah before getting groceries. Excellent pizza! Garden of the Gods is a great place to visit. Ours boys love going to Bell Smith Springs and jumping off of the rocks into the swimming hole. Many nights were enjoyed grilling and swimming. Our 5 year learned to swim in the deep end and do front flips this year. Although a little scary for me it was exciting to see his eyes light up when he accomplished it. I enjoyed mornings sitting on the front porch watching the hummingbirds. We also enjoyed watching the deer come in to eat some apples. I cannot say enough about the experiences we’ve had here. Thank you Tana and Jimmy for having a great getaway for us to visit. We will be back next year if not sooner. We would like to try the wine trails next time. Maybe an anniversary trip for the two of us in September.
Thanks so much for the kind review. We can not say thank you enough for choosing to spend your vacation time at the cabin. You all have been our first repeat renters since we started this a year ago and we couldn't ask for any better guests. You are such a sweet family. Glad the little one learned to swim in the deep end. I bet he was really proud. We look forward to your return visit and maybe we can all get together for the wine trail like we discussed. I think we would have a great time.

Perfect for a relaxing getaway
We stayed for 3 nights over the 4th of July holiday and enjoyed every minute. The house is furnished nicely and is very spacious. We got a lot of use out of the swimming pool, hot tub and pool table. The cabin is secluded and quiet which makes it very easy to relax. We would love to return someday and would definitely recommend the cabin to anyone looking for a relaxing getaway.
We are so glad you enjoyed your stay and would love to have you all back any time. We couldn't have asked for better guests. Hope to see you all back real soon.
