The location is outstanding in regard to easy access to Carbondale, Giant City and other Southern Illinois attractions! We really enjoyed being off the beaten path and enjoyed the natural setting.

Tranquil and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at what we now call uncle Tom's cabin with the owner's (Tom) hospitality!

Great location almost across the street from SIU stadium and campus. Perfect for the game and tailgating, yet far enough to not hear the commotion and deal with crowds. Right off the main drag which made touring the wine trail a breeze! We will be back again!
