We had a great stay. I would highly recommend this place. There are 6 cabins, but we hardly saw the neighbors. Our dog could be on his leash all the time, but he was happy to go visit the horses and other animals. The bed was nice. The kitchen was good. The hosts gave us the advice we needed to... More

These cabins are nestled into an absolutely charming part of the Shawnee National Forest. We stayed at the Bear's Den and were blown away at the craftmanship and detail of this cabin. Everything about the cabin was done and prepared thoughtfully. It is quiet and secluded, yet has all of the creature comforts you might also crave (satellite TV, DVD... More

Wow! It doesn't get much better than this. Beautiful well maintained cabins in a scenic setting. Perfect location to a number of spectacular hiking trails. The owner hosts Bob and Dixie are an absolute pleasure and take great pride in what they have created. Put his at the top of your list if you are visiting the area. Don W

My daughter and I, along with her two dogs, stayed in the Deer Run cabin here. The cabin was very comfortable and very well maintained. The amenities were great! The kitchen was fully stocked with cookware and utensils, and there were plenty of towels and extra bedding. There were two electric fireplaces in the cabin which were very nice, both... More

Thank you for taking the time to post such a nice review. I still get a kick out of each and every word a guest writes about us. Love the picture your daughter posted of her four legged family. You are right, the area is very, very special and we are so fortunate to live her. Thanks again More

Wonderful little cabins located in the heart of the Shawnee National Forest! We stayed in the Bear’s Den cabin for 2 nights with some friends and had a wonderful experience. The cabins are well maintained and nicely decorated. The kitchen is well stocked with equipment for preparing food. Each site is relatively secluded with its own fire pit, grills, etc.... More

Thank you so much for your review. Bear's Den is one of our original (with lots of updates) cabins and one of my favorites. So glad you enjoyed Rim Rock trail (also one of my favorites). It looks different each time I hike it. I am very, very pleased that you had a good time. Come back and see us. More

My wife and I stayed at Rim Rock's Dogwood cabins over Christmas and had a wonderful time. We stayed in the Bear's Den which is the first cabin in the row of three on that side of the property.

My family of four plus chocolate lab stayed in Coyote Hollow and it was just perfect! The cabins are about 10 years old but look brand new.

These illinois cabins are near Cave in Rock State Park, Saline County Wildlife area, Glen O Jones Lake, Ohio River, Kentucky Amish Country and much more.

We are on the American Discovery Trail, the Ohio River Scenic Byway and the Shawnee Scenic Byway. Our Southern Illinois Cabins are in a very private setting on 77 acres surrounded by the Shawnee National Forest. GREAT NEWS FOR 2012.

All cabins will have large water heaters and either queen beds or comfortable queen futons as well. ... more   less
