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

Oak Grove Cabins are a beautiful, open design that makes them feel much larger than their actual footprint. The decor and furnishings are very obviously selected with both taste and comfort in mind - quality mattresses covered with gorgeous, high-thread count sheets and cozy quilts and bedding, sink-in-and-curl-up sofas, a fully equipped kitchen, and a sparkling clean bathroom - including...

My husband & I had a weekend getaway & had the pleasure of staying in the newest addition to the cabins, #2 “The Dogwood" in Walnut Grove. Upon easy entering of the front door, we just felt very welcome & relaxed. We were very impressed with the decor, and modernization of this cabin. Everything from the flat screen t.v.’s to... More
