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

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

My husband, dog and I spent two days in cabin 1 then another five days in cabin 2 and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. I would definitely stay here again. The price is maybe a little higher then some of the other options in the area but they offer more amenities and that was important to us. The cabins are all... More

We spent our 7the anniversary at Oak Grove Cabins and loved it. The cabin was very clean and comfortable. I was amazed how well stocked it was. It was very private and well maintained inside and out. We stayed in cabin 2 and could not see any other cabin or house from our cabin. There was plenty of firewood for... More

Id like to start off with some positive. These cabins are very aesthetically pleasing. But in the end... aesthetics alone did not save our experience. They claim these cabins are secluded, they even provide pictures to show you how secluded they are. Well, if you rent cabin 1 please say "Hi" to all your neighbors in cabins 2 & 3... More

This guest stayed with 3 others in Oak Grove Cabin 1 in January. They hauled firewood through the cabin leaving debris all over. The back patio was covered with mud. There was mud and were multiple spills on the furniture and flooring. There was vomit all over the bathroom. I charged them an extra $50 cleaning fee (this is only... More

The cabins are nice; however, there are a few things that made our stay unenjoyable. Because the cabins are in such a wooded area, there are bugs everywhere. Both of us staying there had numerous bites and even tics. Also, the beds were extremely hard. One bedroom stayed uncomfortably hot, even with the air on high.
