Thanksgiving -Family gathering

  • 5 of 5

Our family, me, my husband, grown daughter, son, daughter-in-law and 16 year old grandson totally enjoyed our stay. The cabin had all we needed. The kitchen was so well furnished the we could have the typical Thanksgiving dinner. (We did bring the turkey roaster).

We enjoyed the fire pit for late night smores. We hiked around the property... but a special treat was looking out the cabin window to see deer by the pond. We enjoyed going hiking in near-by Giant City State Park as well. A perfect vacation.

Fantastic stY

  • 5 of 5

This cabin really exceeded our expectations! It was beautifully decorated and very clean. Everything we needed was on hand. They even have a gas grill on the deck and a fire pit on the lower level patio. It is located in an area that feels secluded yet us only ten minutes from Carbondale's main shopping area.We would definitely stay here again.

We loved Janet!

  • 4 of 5

Janet was a doll! Even had banana bread waiting in the cabin for us..which our 9 month old loved! We found the cabin had everything we needed and more. We did run into a wasp nest on the small dock/deck behind our cabin, but it didn't detour from a good time...we had a great laugh of it.

Fantastic Cabins!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay in the Cabins at Indian Creek! Janet at the Office was great to work with and had everything set up and ready for us with our late night arrival. The cabins are brand new with great attention to detail. The cabin was nicely decorated and the layout was perfect to accommodate six people without any issues.

We would definitely recommend the Cabins at Indian Creek and will definitely be back again!

New rental property needs some help.

  • 3 of 5

I rent a lot of Mid-west cabins on lakes and rivers. I know what to expect, and I know that you generally get what you pay for. My elderly mother, sister, and myself rented this new cabin for a getaway weekend with fairly high expectations because of the fairly high rental price. The cabin and the site were beautiful, well-stocked, and presented as pictured and advertised. However, we were greeted with "The dishwasher is not working," which is not something you want to hear at the start of a weekend. Also, we could not get the "water on demand" system to work properly. The water was either ice cold or scalding hot and would change mid-shower. It was so dangerous that we would not let our mother shower. It seems as though written instructions to a new system would be appropriate. We were also not offered any discount for having to deal with these issues. We did, however, have a lovely stay despite these problems because that's what we intended to do. If these problems are resolved, we would most certainly be back to stay or to recommend to others. But not before . . .

Owner's Response: We apologize for the on-demand water problems. This is the first time we were notified of it and it has been fixed. Also, the dishwasher issue has been addressed. As a brand new rental, little problems like this have surfaced which we've ironed out. We pride ourselves on this property and having everything perfect for our guests in the future. Thanks for your feedback.

Could not ask for more!

Never in my wildest dreams would I have expected Indian Creek Cabins to be so perfect!! It is clear that owners have painstakingly planned this luxurious vacation hide-away for quite sometime and with every effort to give attention to the most minute of details. The lay-out and architectural design of the place is just beautiful. The setting couldn't be better with its close proximity to town but yet the feeling that you are miles and miles away from it all. We immediately felt welcomed by the freshly-baked bread and a note wishing us a nice stay. It literally took the full two days to discover the many amenities throughout the cabin including a full kitchen with every kitchen tool and appliance you could possibly need. The bed was super comfy and it was especially nice to have so many windows we could open and enjoy nature's symphony all night long. There is not one single thing I would add to or change about this place. (Except maybe a tennis court. Just kidding. Sort of.) Congratulations to the owners and staff of Indian Creek. Clearly you know how to create the ultimate cabin-in-the-woods experience! I cannot WAIT to go back!!!
