My friend and I booked a treehouse for a stay in May 2013. Both of us are "big city" girls, but I'd traveled a bit in Southern Illinois and really thought the area was beautiful--so why not enjoy a few days here?

So glad we did! I'd never heard of a treehouse for adults, but the experience was so much fun. The location is quiet and peaceful, the stars at night were unbelievable--had never seen a sky so clear! The bed in the loft was super comfortable and my friend used the futon and said it was great. Every amenity--tv, full kitchen, outside grill, fire pit and unlimited firewood the owners are happy to restock for you. I especially enjoyed just sitting on the treehouse deck and enjoying nature--good for the soul!

If you're looking for a quiet getaway in beautiful ozarks-like country, try the treehouse experience for yourself--you won't be sorry. So glad we stayed!

Okay I have to admit I grew up about 20 miles from here in another county. My mom grew up in this county. We haven't lived in Southern Illinois since the 80's. I can tell you that it feels like coming home though....kids catching lightening bugs (don't call them fireflies), catching craw daddy's (not called craw fish), and can I tell you how AMAZING the stars are? I haven't seen stars this bright (no city lights) since...well since the 80's. Okay Elizabeth and Marty are super nice...their son will come around and take your trash and deliver firewood. We got to roast marshmallows and tell scary stories to the kids. My beds in the loft (we stayed in the larger Cabin) were better than any hotel I have stayed in a very long time. Everything is very clean and smells like a new cabin when you walk in. It was very hot and the worst drought since 1988...so the A/C was working overtime. So it got a wee warm upstairs during the day..but we were out most of the time. By the time we went to bed...
