“Good Value!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2014

My wife discovered WIllowbrook Cabins while planning our trip to Cave-in-Rock and Garden of the Gods. It was close enough to both. The cabins are located right off of Eddyville Road. We stayed at the "Hiker" cabin. It had 2 bedrooms, one bathroom, a living room, a kitchen with washer and dryer, and front and back porches. It was pretty hot and humid when we stayed there so the AC ran quite a bit. It was not very quiet but it kept the cabin nice and cool. There was a wooded area directly behind the cabin. There is also a fire pit just outside the cabin. We stayed 2 nights and will likely stay again. Pack some food and be sure to have plenty of gas in your vehicle when you arrive. Beautiful area!

We stayed 4 nights in the "Hiker" cabin. It was nice and clean with all the amenities of home. We enjoyed the private back deck overlooking the woods. Our cabin had our own fire pit where we enjoyed evening campfires. The only problem we had was that the beds were too soft for us and we had trouble sleeping. Otherwise, everything was wonderful. The cabins are centrally located to many good hiking areas. The Shawnee National Forest is a beautiful place to visit.

My wife and I stayed at Willowbrook Cabins for our 15th Wedding Anniversary in an effort to unplug from the rest of the world. What a great experience all the way around. The owners of this property made every effort to help us with anything we needed and they've created a wonderful retreat. We loved how centrally located it was. We highly recommend staying at this property. You won't be sorry (unless you're looking for big-city options).

I have stayed in many vacation rentals over the years, Willowbrook is the CLEANEST I have found. Friendly hosts with great knowledge of the area. Great location for Shawnee National Forest. I would recommend these cabins to anyone who asked

I have visited the Shawnee National forest numerous times and Willowbrook Cabins is my only choice for lodging. I bring clients there for scenic photography tours and I want them to have top notch lodging. Willowbrook is very centralized to many of the attractions in the Shawnee, and with nice amenities like full functional kitchens, a washer and dryer, microwave, coffee pot, we cannot go wrong. Add the fact that your hosts are awesome inn keepers and your never look for another place the next time you visit Southern IL. or the Shawnee Forest.
