Awesome great cabins and amazing view. Book early they only have 8 units. Make sure to visit the cave. Short walk down stairs but there is a railing. Garden of the Gods is not too far and worth the drive.

Beautiful scenery, they only have 8 units so you must book ahead. Overlooking the ohio river. Make sure you walk to the cave, it's down steps but they have a railing. Incredible time. Drove to Garden of the Gods and it was amazing.

We rented 3 cabins for a family reunion. Kim was most helpful making our reservations. The cabins were very clean, beds comfortable and the views phenomenal! A wonderful location overlooking the river! We loved walking in the park, fishing and walking to town to ride the ferry. It was a memorable vacation! If you would like a quiet, out of... More

So pleased to find a room available at the Lodge without reservtation. The cabin was clean, spacious, and the balcony beckoning. The housekeeper even went out of her way to provde an area map. Sweet retreat!

We stayed at Caylor's Cabins the end of October. They are set-up as duplexes. We did hear our neighbors thru the night like they were above us, but other than that it was a great cabin and reasonable for the price. They have a Sr. Discount taking it from $99 down to $90 and back up to $99 with tax.... More

Wonderful, second trip and now a different cabin. Was just as nice as the first one. The evenings on your private balcony looking to the Ohio River is wonderful. A bottle of wine with the stars in view. These cabins are priced right and very spacious. Separate kitchen and with large table to sit. Always expert staff. Keep there number... More

We have stayed here before. Love the Duplex Cabins. The view of the River is great. The housekeeping is good not excellent but ok. Roomy rooms. Older Tvs. Beds could be a little more supportive. Now the resturant is another story. Food not good at all. First time we has eaten in it. We had breakfast and wasn't a very... More

We crossed the free ferry from Kentucky into Illinois to enter the town of Cave-in-a-Rock. Quaint and small would describe this attraction. I noticed this was a popular motorcycle destination too. We at lunch at a picnic table overlooking the Ohio River. When we figured out what and where the Cave-in-a-Rock was, we walked down along the water and walked... More

My husband and I stayed here on our trip to Shawnee National Forest. He read the reviews so we decided to stay here. This was better than the pictures.Very spacious. It was just the two of us, however, if our children came, there was plenty of room for all. We stayed in 4B. Great place. So quiet and peaceful. The... More
