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.

Wonderful home & hosts

  • 5 of 5

The pictures do not do this home justice. The landscaping, the beautiful trees, the hummingbirds and deer outside and inside it's spacious and warm and just wonderful. So much room, and so cozy. The weather was hot and humid while we were there, perfect pool weather and boy did we (myself, kids and grandkids) enjoy the pool and hot tub. The back porch and deck area is perfect for hanging out. It's evident the hosts Tana & Jimmy, take pride in their home. Little things like snacks on the counter, water in the fridge, shampoo in the shower really made us feel at home. We plan to come back!

Best Rental Home Ever!

  • 5 of 5

Wow! WOw! WOW! What a great place to stay. This was by far the best rental home we have ever stayed at. Out in the country with no one right next to us. Great pool and hot tub. Home was very clean. Tana had lights on and music playing upon our arrival which made for a very nice welcome. Really felt like our hostess actually cared about our comfort during our stay. Hope to revisit someday.

Peaceful Retreat!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a sibling reunion that was both peaceful and interesting at this beautiful remote lodging!! Whether it was sitting on the back porch at night listening to the bullfrogs and coyotes in the distance or watching the deer cross the property in the early morning hours, we could not have asked for a better place to meet for our small group of 6 sixty-plus adults. We were not too far from Paducah and it's attractions, either! We even found a movie setting from years ago not too far away! (US Marshals - Bay City General Store!) Everything was super clean and inviting. ...and with the pool right off the back porch, it would be great for families in the summer. Thank you for a great weekend!!
