We were looking for a getaway from the city, saw the reveiws for the cabins, and took off for a weekend to Southern Illinois. We were so very happy with our trip! The cabin was very quaint; small but had enough room for everyone (we traveled with our two boys ages 13 and 10). The kitchen was well stocked wtih utensils making it easy to eat in. (Groceries are a bit of a drive, so plan accordingly!) The layout of the cabin worked well with the boys. We actually took one of the upstairs bedrooms and the boys stayed on the lower level with a tv and big sitting area to hang out. The view from the back porch was fantastic and the hummingbirds pratically knoced on the kitchen window! The sheets and towels were great and the beds were very comfy. There are two cabins on the property and they are a little closer together than I would have liked, but honestly, I can't say that I heard any noise or that they were a distraction to our weekend in any way. All in all, a great little getaway!
