We rented Deer Run, Cougar Bluff and Bears Den. There are trails all around. We hiked all over the place. Our Grand-children loved the animals. I think the favorite was the donkey's. It was so peaceful and relaxing. The Cabins are close to the Garden of the God's. Also Pounds Hollow Lake was just two miles away. We were going to hike there but decided to drive with all the kids. This was a Birthday trip for me from my kids. Our group had eight adults and ten children ranging in age from 17 to 1 years old. There was something for everyone to enjoy. The Owners were great and even took a family picture for us. We will be back. So peaceful and private. Loved everything about our stay. Thank you for having such a wonderful place for our family to go, feel safe and no one was bored.
We have stayed here twice now and would highly recommend staying at any one of these cabins. It really is a forgotten corner of Illinois and a great reminder for us Chicago folks how beautiful southern Illinois is, The cabins our group of friends stayed had everything you would ever need and were always spotlessly cleaned and well maintained. The property is lovely and very close to georgeous hikes and vistas. There is also a small but great lake nearby with a fairly large beach for swimming. The lake is a great spot for fishing or kayak/paddleboarding. For this corner of the world, nothing beats a holiday weekend at one of these rustic cabins!
We stayed here last year, nice clean cabin, near all the cool nautre spots in area. Reasonably priced. In Swanee Nat forest close to Ohio river. Hiking is ample. Not crowded. Hidden gem. Cabins is clean and well supplied
We spent two nights in their largest cabin, Eagles Retreat; there were 5 of use plus a dog. Very comfortable & everything we would want was there. We brought food & everything down to a potato peeler & big pot for chili was there. It was in the 30’s outside & we were plenty warm inside. Location is near Garden of the Gods & there are some very nice trails on site. I highly recommend.
Rim Rocks Dogwood Cabins Deer Run Cabin ...Dirty: Food left in Microwave. Dirt on Sham of spider webs and some kind of droppings, Kitchen had so much dust on spatula provided to cook with I could write my name in the dust,Grease in the oven from last tenant, dust thick on the curtains, chair for the table in kitchen had paper stuck in the rounds to hold it together, one of our party almost took a spill when it gave way we had to move it to the porch, loft was 3 mattress on floor with candy wraps and dust all round. Shower leaked onto the floor with mold..Grill on floor in small bath was full of hair and debris.. Dirty floor on screened in porch with 2 large spiders.. Outside grill had left over foil with food from last tenant...The grounds around the cabin hadn't been cleaned in some time. After our conversation with the Proprietors.. My thoughts were we would not be having this conversation if you had done your job and cleaned it before you put it online The proprietors said they thought we expected to much... and to think you had this cabin so highly rated online. You need to be turned into the BBB. I have pictures... There was 4 of us in this cabin, all could not believe this, and to think that we paid $165..a night ..The cemetery was at our fence line and that was the only thing that did not bother us...all of us in our party were lovers of the outdoors (nature),and its location was in the beautiful Karbers Ridge area.. What a shame!…
