Experience the Solitude and Seclusion
Rocky Comfort Cabins

More than just a place to stay, it's an experience.

Since The French Creole Cabin is at the highest elevation on the property and surrounding terrain, you will be treated to a full sunrise and sunset.

From the Creole Cabin, enjoy watching the weather come in from miles away, or the surreal experience to watch as the fog slowly rolls in, and rises above the canopy of the forest.

Unique Cabins in Southern Illinois on The Shawnee Hills Wine Trail

Peaceful and Uncrowded.

Secluded and Private, all three cabins have a scenic path to beautiful Blue Sky Vineyard, the premiere award winning winery on the Shawnee Hills Wine Trail. We are out in the rolling Shawnee Hills. There is no internet or WIFI so it is a perfect way to disconnect for a romantic southern Illinois cabin getaway for two.

The cabins all are whole homes a minimum of a football field apart. Just bring food, do a little hiking and, if you wish, you might not see another soul. We look forward to being your place to stay for an amazing getaway on The Shawnee Hills Wine Trail. Did somebody say wine? Yes please! :)

Cozy Nights
