Everything about Dorothy's cabins are thoughtful, fully stocked kitchen, nice linens, comfy beds, excellent hot tub, semi-secluded, front porch, outdoor campfire area.....you name it, our stay was lovely. Late review, stayed in 2010

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

Great spot with great amenities. Have had the pleasure of staying there more than once and will return. Can't wait to check out Walnut Grove cabins! The placement of the cabins is well thought out and you feel like you are alone in the woods. Close to everything and Dorothy is very accommodating. I just wish I had more time... More

I have stayed twice at these cabins, and have never had a bad experience. The area is beautiful, and the cabins are as well. The owners are very nice and provide everything you need for a perfect, relaxing stay. They are dog friendly which is a big plus for me, and provide everything we need to make their stay enjoyable.... More

We stayed in cabin #2 in the winter when the leaves were off the trees and it felt very private in the immaculate hot tub on our back patio. The backyard is very nice with a privacy screen built along the back property line. The cabin is very large with big comfy beds and couches and the kitchen is clean... More

We found these cabins from a brochure ad and then looked at their website. You are never sure what to expect based on picutres alone, but the cabin was better than we could have expected. We stayed in cabin 3 and felt very secluded and private. We did not see any other guests except the one time the guests at... More

I have stayed in at least 5 different cabins along the Shawnee Wine trial and I can honestly say that this is my least favorite. The cabin itself is nice and clean but the service from the owners leaves something to be desired. Here are a few of my complaints: 1) The website states that the cabins are "secluded" and... More

Oakgrovecabin, Owner at Oak Grove Cabins, responded to this review

This is Dorothy Lada, owner of Oak Grove Cabins. I was contacted by the guest that wrote the review about the fireplace and told the guest that we do not turn on the fireplaces until it gets cold enough. The guest stayed in October and the daytime temp was 75 degrees. I can not tell you how many times I... More

We stayed in one of their cabins in September of 2012. The cabins are beautiful inside and out and very well stocked. In fact, we were shocked at all the utensils, etc. that are provided. This part of Illinois is beautiful and we came down on a motorcycle to ride the wine trail. We ate dinner out on Friday night... More
