We absolutely loved staying at the redwood couples getaway cabin. We spent two nights here and really enjoyed the views and hot tub. The cabin was close to the wibe trail. Everything was very. Clean, the beds was so comfortable and we had everything we needed!

Imagine a pristine cabin nestled in the woods near Makanda and Giant City State Park. Cabin #3 was most perfect for a girls getaway for me and my two BFFs. We stayed for two nights in the middle of the week. The cabin has all the amenities one needs for a short or long term stay. The two bedrooms both... More

My husband, 1.5 year old daughter and I stayed there for 3 nights and it was everything we wanted. Clean, well stocked cabin with comfy beds and a cozy atmosphere. The cabins feel secluded because of the dense trees, so the privacy and feeling like we were away from everything was exactly what was needed. The hot tub was just... More

This is a nice cabin, kind of out of the way unless you count the next cabin over where the people like to sing late into the night...and they didn't bother to invite us over to join in the fun,,,otherwise it was very comfortable. There is a TV in both the living area and one bedroom, however they are both... More

We rented out all 5 cabins for a weekend stay to tour the wineries. Loved how cozy and well kept the cabins were. You can really tell that the owners take pride in this property. They had an assortment of dishes and supplies to make grilling out and serving dinner Saturday night a breeze. Will definately visit again!

We stayed at the Dogwood Cabin for a relaxing few days! My husband & I were looking for a quiet peaceful few days, and couldn't have asked for a better place! Cabin was extremely clean and well cared for, and the decor was beautiful. We thoroughly enjoyed having the relaxing hot tub to end our day, after hiking. It was... More

We stayed in cabin 1 over the weekend. It was perfect accommodations and we brought our dog along. Very spacious and amenities were great. The weather was the only damper of having 6 inches of snow and ice. On the plus side Dorothy called us prior to give us a courtesy call (very nice) and the wonderful gas fireplace, which... More

I hesitate to share my opinion of Oak Grove cabins for fear of the cabin being booked when I plan future getaways. Since we already have the cabin booked for this fall I'll let you in on our secret. The place is amazing! We found the cabin two years ago after previous stays in the area. We returned last fall... More

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
