About Steve Young

I grew up in Southern Illinois, and could not wait to 'Get Out,' 'Escape,' and go to the big city. I went to school in Chicago at the Illinois Institute of Technology, and left Southern Illinois far behind. I thought this was great.

I had a very successful career in the online advertising, marketing, and market research world catering to big pharma. In a normal year I would fly 125,000 miles and see many places, countries and sites.

As I grew older and my 'success' continued I felt more and more that something was missing. I began to yearn for the hills of Southern Illinois, the slower pace of life, and the people I left behind more and more.

I 2013, I came home for a few weeks to help my mother move my father into a nursing home. After this was completed I flew to Milan for business, and on my way back I received a call that my mother had had a stroke. This was a life changing event for me, and I never really went home.

My father spent the year getting worse, and my Mother spent the year getting better. When my father died in December of 2013, I decided to 'officially' move to Southern Illinois in order to spend more time with my mother and be closer with family. I also made the decision to leave the company I worked for and do something simpler, and local to Southern Illinois.

June 1st, 2014 I started my company with the goal to create vacation rental homes in Southern Illinois and help the area grow tourism. Southern Illinois is a beautiful and special place, and I would like to share it with as many people as possible.

Steve Young purchased this cabin in 2014

Why Steve Young chose Illinois

This property was an old Bed and Breakfast, and the view was spectacular. The property was foreclosed on and a friend that I went to high school with had purchased it and remodeled the main house. Once I purchased it I started refurbishing the guesthouse. Now that it is completed I think it is one of the nicest properties on the wine trail.

The property will sleep a maximum of 16 people, or can be rented to separate parties in the main house and guesthouse.

What makes this cabin unique

The proximity to wineries, and area attractions is also great for this property.

A great overall stay!

  • 5 of 5

Very well-kept home, tidy, and clean. Five stars, but we didn't realize another property was so close. So a little less private than desired. We'd still recommend, for sure!

Creative rustic surroundings!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at the Tool Shed Cottage and it was wonderful! The rural setting provides a relaxing environment and the cottage has everything you need. Steve has thought of just about everything to make your stay easy and fun. Deer visit the fields below the cabin in the evening and the large deck provides a venue to relax and kick back. Wineries, stores, great out of the way restaurants are nearby but not too close. Great getaway!

This property is centrally located for winery visits and quiet relaxation.

  • 5 of 5

The owner has done an excellent renovation of this cabin. Their is privacy for both "suites" while also the ability to socialize is definitely a plus. Views both in the daylight and the night sky are wonderful! In 20 minutes or less, you are in proximity of towns and restaurants....far enough away to enjoy the quiet, too.

The quality of the bedding and towels is commendable. The owner was responsive with a small issue ..and...even called again to ensure our stay remained pleasant.

The "neighbor" up the hill left us a dozen farm fresh eggs...nice touch! We will return.
