This cabin has everything we needed for fun and comfort. There was a grill, full kitchen, firepit, enclosed porch, games, and plenty of bunk space. They have a variety of cabin sizes. We used one that had a queen bedroom, loft with queen and three twins, a couch, a pullout bed in a couch and a queen futon on the porch if the weather works out. One and a half baths took a minor amount of planning; but we had five adults, five kids and three dogs. We like this place because it is dog friendly,kid friendly, has hiking on property and all around the area, and plenty of other farm animals for the kids to enjoy petting and feeding. The owners are very friendly and helpful as well. I will definitely be returning. My brother has been staying here for several years now and the area is building up. There is a general store within a few short miles now but large scale groceries should still probably be purchased on the way since it is relatively remote.

I don't know how it's possible to spend an entire week with rain and storms and come home completely refreshed and recharged. We stayed at Eagle Retreat again and enjoyed every minute. Ample room to move around, fix food, relax. The DVR player was used more than normal because of the storms but that forced us to sit back and relax.

Bob & Dixie are the most accommodating hosts and do their very best to give you a quiet retreat. While the silver in the drawers might be mismatched as are the plates and glasses - who cares! You're never in need of your basics and who needs more than that? I guess if you do a cabin vacation isn't for you. If you want a homey feel with privacy and beauty, can't recommend this place enough.

Can't wait to go back next July...best vacation choice in IL.

Stayed in a cute cabin with a large screen porch, living room, kitchen and two bathrooms. Was a bit dusty but very comfortable, dog-friendly and met our needs. Owners are super nice. Hiking trail across the street. Had our own fire pit with plenty of seating around it. Would stay there again!

Thank you so much for taking the time to review our cabin. Sorry about dust. We battle that issue and sometimes overlook if we have all five to clean. We will work on that. Come back and see us. We appreciate you choosing our place for your vacation. Dixie

We visited for Mother's Day weekend and rented the Bear's Den cabin. The cabin had plenty of room for 5 adults. The beds were comfortable and there were plenty of towels and linens. We enjoyed having a bonfire and were able to sit on the screened porch when it rained. Very close to several state parks, including Garden of the Gods. Definitely bring long pants and deep woods bug spray - lots of ticks! Being able to bring our dogs was a huge plus and I feel the price of the cabin was very, very reasonable. Hope to return next year!

We stayed in the Deer Run cabin. It was well-equipped and comfortable, but small. It is said to sleep 8; by my count, it could actually sleep 10. But those numbers are based on beds, not overall space. The cabin itself is small and cramped. That is offset somewhat by the lovely screened side porch. We spent most of our indoor time out there, including meals. Definitely the best aspect of the cabin!

For families with children, a factor to consider is the sleeping arrangement. There is one bed in a separate bedroom. The others are essentially in the living space. The loft had 3 full-sized futon mattresses on the floor, so can sleep 6. But because it's a loft, it's a part of the living room. And the last bed is a futon in the living room. We were able to put kids to bed and not have to go to bed ourselves by sitting on the porch with the door closed and our keeping voices low. Two more notes about the loft: it is accessed by very steep steps with high rises (tricky for this middle-aged person), and the ceiling is quite low. An average height adult can sit fully upright in the center, where the peak is higher. But it was cozy and comfortable!

Firewood is provided free of charge, which is wonderful. The firepit was nice and had ample seating. There was no hose or even bucket provided for extinguishing the fire, which was a safety worry if a fire would have escaped the pit, and meant many trips back and forth with water in small kitchen containers at the end of the night. But we made full use of it! Roasting sticks are even provided!

One last thing I would mention is that the cabin was filled with an overwhelming odor of Lysol when we arrived. We knew it was clean! But we had to open all doors and windows to air it out, and absorbent foods in the fridge that weren't in airtight containers ended up tasting like Lysol. We tossed out leftover pizza, butter, etc. So if you're sensitive to scents, that might be an issue.

Overall, we were quite pleased with our stay, and would likely return. The surrounding area is gorgeous and there is so much to see that you could jeep coming back for years and not get it all in. Thank you Dogwood Cabins for a nice getaway!
