The cabin we stayed in was out of sight of everything and at the same time close to 95% of all the local attractions. We went with another couple for some hiking and the wine trail. The cabin was spacious and clean. The hot tub was great. We cooked all of our breakfasts in. We will be a repeat customer.

I don't want to tell anyone how awesome and relaxing this place is because I want to keep it all to myself! But here it goes. Loved it, loved it, loved it! Better than a hotel. Of course you are responsible for the cleanliness and upkeep while you are there...but come on...we are adults! Fire pit, Hot tub, Trails, PRIVACY!!... More

We absolutely loved staying at the redwood couples getaway cabin. We spent two nights here and really enjoyed the views and hot tub. The cabin was close to the wibe trail. Everything was very. Clean, the beds was so comfortable and we had everything we needed!

Imagine a pristine cabin nestled in the woods near Makanda and Giant City State Park. Cabin #3 was most perfect for a girls getaway for me and my two BFFs. We stayed for two nights in the middle of the week. The cabin has all the amenities one needs for a short or long term stay. The two bedrooms both... More

My husband, 1.5 year old daughter and I stayed there for 3 nights and it was everything we wanted. Clean, well stocked cabin with comfy beds and a cozy atmosphere. The cabins feel secluded because of the dense trees, so the privacy and feeling like we were away from everything was exactly what was needed. The hot tub was just... More

This is a nice cabin, kind of out of the way unless you count the next cabin over where the people like to sing late into the night...and they didn't bother to invite us over to join in the fun,,,otherwise it was very comfortable. There is a TV in both the living area and one bedroom, however they are both... More

We rented out all 5 cabins for a weekend stay to tour the wineries. Loved how cozy and well kept the cabins were. You can really tell that the owners take pride in this property. They had an assortment of dishes and supplies to make grilling out and serving dinner Saturday night a breeze. Will definately visit again!

We stayed at the Dogwood Cabin for a relaxing few days! My husband & I were looking for a quiet peaceful few days, and couldn't have asked for a better place!

We stayed in cabin 1 over the weekend. It was perfect accommodations and we brought our dog along. Very spacious and amenities were great. The weather was the only damper of having 6 inches of snow and ice. On the plus side Dorothy called us prior to give us a courtesy call (very nice) and the wonderful gas fireplace, which... More
