The cabins have a great view of the Ohio River, and a balcony you can sit on to look out over it. Alternatively, if is cool and windy (or rain), there is a nice picture window with the same great view. The cabins are a nice, (not five star NYC) and have everything you need. Good air-conditioning/heating, TV, fridge, microwave, lots of space. If you like to watch commercial river traffic, barge traffic was good on the river day and night (very little sound from the barges). Great views and provides easy access to many parts of the Shawnee National Forest area attractions.
The restaurant has limited hours (check to see if their hours fit you schedule). Had breakfast and dinner both very good and reasonable priced with great service. Desserts looked great, but filled to capacity with dinner.
Highly recommend if you are traveling in Southern Illinois. Stay here for a night or two to explore Garden of the Gods, Cave in Rock, Shawnee National Forest, Harden County, the tunnel trail, go antiquing take the ferry to the Kentucky side, local wineries, then head over to the west for more wineries.
