We checked in on Friday after a long day of hiking and found that the shower was broken, so I called the owner. She immediately started yelling and using foul language. It was so surprising that I put it on the speakerphone, so my wife could hear the conversation. I was told that it would be fixed later and, as... More

This was this guests second stay at our cabins. The shower facet broke off all the way into the wall just prior to this guests arrival. The prior guest had damaged it and failed to inform me. I left this guest a note saying that my husband would be over to fix it at around 5 PM. The guest called... More

It's hard to put into words how wonderful our weekend was. To getaway from the suburbs and to escape to a secluded cabin in the woods for a relaxing weekend. Quiet, and serene are a few I'd use to describe staying here. We stayed 2 nights at Cabin #3. From driving up to stepping inside the door it was if... More

We stayed in Cabin 1 in September, and it was absolutely perfect. The cabin was clean, quiet, and the beds were very comfortable. Loved the firepit and BBQ grill near the back patio. Sitting outside after a great BBQ dinner around the firepit roasting marshmallows was delightful. The kitchen had everything you could possibly need, including a blender, toaster, coffee... More

We used Cabin 1 at Oak Grove Cabins as a base for both moving our 18-year old college freshman into Southern Illinois University and a means to explore Giant City and environs. We found: - A clean, comfortable cabin with the kitchen stocked with everything needed - A queen bed in one room and a king in the other -... More

My new wife and I had an amazing time at Walnut Grove Redbud Cabin. It was extremely clean and well appointed. It was in a very nice piece of land with wilderness surrounding it on three sides. The hot tub was very comfortable and the furniture indoors and out was very nice. A couple of downsides: the fan over the... More

My boyfriend and I, along with our dog Sammie recently stayed in Cabin 1 at Oak Grove Cabins. Upon arrival, we fell in love with the place. It's literally our ideal home. It has 2 separate bedrooms (1 king with TV, 1 full/queen, both very comfortable), a living room (flat screen TV, cable, 2 comfy couches, and a seasonal fireplace),... More

Our family wanted to explore both eastern and western portions of the Shawnee National Forest, and we could not have been happier with Dorothy's centrally located Oak Grove Cabins. Each day, we cooked a great breakfast at the cabin, hit the trails, came back to the cabin for dinner on the back porch, put the kids to bed, soaked in... More

My wife and I decided to go to the Shawnee wine trail right after new years this year and we were happy to find the Oak Grove cabins online. We absolutely loved the cabin (we stayed in cabin 1) and we were pleased that dogs were allowed so that they could travel with us. The cabin is clean and thoughtfully... More

I have stayed at two of the cabins, and they are top notch. They are comfortable, maintained and usually overstocked with stuff you need. There are specific clean up rules for checkout, but we always clean after our stay anyway. I met the owner, and she is awesome. When we go to Southern Illinois, we always try to stay in... More
