Stayed for two nights in the White Tail cabin. All amenities were clean, tasteful and easy to use. Even though there are four cabins around a relatively small lake/pond, the trees and undergrowth separates each from the others. The experience was tranquil with no disturbance from any of the "neighbors" even though the others cabins were obviously in use. We also enjoyed the Carbondale/Murphysboro area with plenty to see and do. This is a great base from which to explore the Southern Illinois Wine Trail. Can't wait for another opportunity to stay at Woodland Cabins.
