Enjoy a nice stroll around the property and look at all the beautiful flowers grown in the greenhouse on site, sit in the gazebo and watch the river drift by, walk on the beach and wet you toes in the Majestic Wabash River that runs by the cabins, or share the Cabana bed or one of the many hammocks placed around the grounds.

Beautiful getaway. Perfect

  • 5 of 5

Ed was amazing. Baked us cakes and left goodies. The property is huge and well taken care of. Very private. While it was cold for our stay the cabin stayed quite warm. Ed had a fire for us when we arrived. I would like to come back in the summer so we could spend more time outside on the beautiful property. Everything I wanted and more.

Beautiful scenery & wonderful host!

  • 5 of 5

Ed was so great! What a welcoming, generous host! He truly makes the experience what it is - with a warm welcome and homemade goodies! The weather was perfect when we stayed and we spent hours out by the fire pit enjoying the beautiful river. That was definitely the highlight!

Cute, quaint and exactly what we needed!

  • 5 of 5

Ed is a fantastic host and his property is absolutely gorgeous! My wife and I spent a much needed post-wedding mini-moon with our pooch at the Morels on Wabash. We arrived in the evening on the first night, after dealing with extensive car troubles, to a chilling bottle of champagne and blueberry pie. The hot tub is wonderful, the cabin (Shitake) was just the right size, and the property is filled with things to explore and do. Mostly, we just enjoyed the downtime by the fire and in the hammock but there is so much to do if that is what you are looking for. All and all, it was a wonderful experience and we will definitely be back!

We were looking for a peaceful weekend, we got that and more! Ed always made sure we were beyond happy! He kept us supplied with baked goods (even a Birthday cake), & he made sure our fire never went out! We will definitely be back!

Ohhhh so perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed for 3 nights in September for our anniversary. First impression upon arrival was that we were going to love our time here and we weren't disappointed. After a sweet and loving greeting from Ed, we were lead to our cabin for a quick but thorough tour. Upon a lovingly set table we found a homemade cake waiting (and OMG, phenomenal cake!), the best apple walnut bread (and butter and milk already in the fridge) and a bottle of wine already chilling. Ed had a fire waiting for us outside. We were shown the controls of the hot tub, told to make ourselves at home, were given free reign of the property and were left to "celebrate" (wink, wink.)

We found our cabin clean and plenty spacious enough for 2. There is a bar height table fully set, a fully stocked kitchen (was so relieved to find the coffeemaker and coffee!), extra pillows and blankets in the closet, WIFI (yes!!), satellite tv, a fireplace, and a REALLY comfy FULL sized bed. The hot tub is CLEAN, very private and awesome. The deck is beautiful and the view of the river is outstanding. We built a fire next to the river (with the provided and ample amount of firewood.)

The ONLY negative was the water but this is the country and they don't control the water. It stinks. I'm not kidding. STINKS. But...there is bottled water in the fridge and a huge jug for whatever else you need water for. We used it for my coffee and for brushing our teeth. I appreciated the lengths Ed went to to make sure we had enough water.

I asked about binoculars while we were there and found that Ed dropped them off for me in the porch. SO SWEET. We didn't have any other special requests but I'm fully convinced Ed would do ANYTHING to make you happy.

All in all, we had a WONDERFUL time at both the property and the surrounding area. Sportsmans Inn in Monticello was just as good as Ed said it was and we found a couple adorable antique/craft stores out that way too.

I can't wait to stay again. I think the trees in October must be simply stunning.

Ed, thank you again for such a wonderful anniversary!

Ed was an excellent host and had our fire going and greeted us when we arrived. He gave us the tour and then let us enjoy the beautiful river and and peaceful views.

Not much else to say! The perfect weekend getaway for a couple jaded Chicagoans. Would recommend to anyone looking for a romantic cabin and a wonderful property owner.

Thanks Ed!
