My wife and I just spent this past weekend with 6 of our friends at the Old Squat Inn. We traveled with ATV's all over the country and decided to visit the LEOR ATV Riding Park near Marion, IL. One of our friends ran across the Old Squat Inn which was only a few minutes away from where we planned... More

You need to set your expectations... It is rustic, a bit quirky and one of the funnest stays you will have. Not for those expecting a high end B&B...but a laid back experience with great hosts and food. Enjoy!

We just spent five days as our third visit to the Olde Squat Inn, and it was the best experience yet. It might have been the cooler weather in Southern Illinois that is just beginning to bring out the color on the trees. Or it might have been the early Fall mornings bringing the fog and mist that glowed over... More

We 4 sisters really enjoyed our stay in the Oxford Trot. Welcomed by Katy when we first arrived with a box full of fresh picked tomatoes and peppers, our hosts,Katy and Jim could not have been more accommodating. Breakfasts were delicious and the grounds are so beautiful and peaceful. We didn't want to leave!

I have stayed here many times with my two large breed dogs and I could not ask for more. The owners are wonderful and have several lab mixes of their own. Our dogs enjoyed off leash freedom to roam and a great swim in the lake. The owners themselves are amazing host. They allowed us to pick dinner from the... More

My sister and I stay at cabins alot and have never had this experience. Pictures are not deceiving, but the cabin we were in was dangerous to say the least. Electrical wiring exposed, not safe for children. Leak under kitchen sink. Bathroom was very dirty and shower had old spoiled rag still in it when we arrived. We did expect... More

I visited the Olde Squat Inn for a mother-daughter weekend getaway. We stayed in the lovely church cabin. The quiet, peaceful seclusion was exactly what we needed. We enjoyed sitting by the fire and simply spending time together. Jim even brought us a puzzle to work on. We also enjoyed the quick drive over to Marion to do a little... More

The Old Squat Inn offers beautiful hand-crafted log cabin rentals in scenic Southern Illinois. Our cabin intertwined modern conveniences with a vintage touch. Surrounded by logs dating from the 1850's, we couldn't help but speculate as to what these walls had seen. The elegant simplicity created the perfect environment for our getaway. The fun, friendly, and flexible owners make this... More

My husband and I have stayed at over 20 cabins around the country. Most are modern and beautifully decorated with rustic accessories that are easily found at many modern gift shops. The Old Squat Inn, however, is a collection of true 1800s cabins, decorated with authentic, antique goodies, inside and out, that take you back to a simpler time. We... More
