Unique Southern Illinois Cabins on The Shawnee Hills Wine Trail
"It is like being at the four seasons in the middle of nowhere. Hands down the cleanest and pristine rentals I have ever stayed in." -recent FB review :)
Peaceful and Uncrowded.
Secluded and Private, yet a scenic stroll to Blue Sky Vineyard, the premiere award winning winery on the Shawnee Hills Wine Trail.
See new images of our beautiful Creole Cabin, completely renovated with eclectic nuances from French Gothic to The French Quarter.
Our calendar is filling up for 2019 with a growing waiting list. We sincerely thank you for your interest and we look forward to having you visit beautiful southern Illinois, The Shawnee Hills Wine Trail, and Rocky Comfort Cabins.
Summer weekend with friends and dinner with Ed and Nancy!
We are trying something new this year. Since our weekends get snapped up so quickly, guests looking to have all three cabins for one weekend is hard to get. This year, we've set aside August 16th, 17th, and 18th as a special three day weekend. Two guests per cabin and you will have the property to yourselves. It's the best scenario; spend the day with friends hiking or on the wine trail, then have your own space to which you can retreat with your special someone. Saturday night, Ed and Nancy will cook up and share a dinner, along with three appropriate wines from the wine trail, for all six guests. It's a chance for you to get to know us and for us to get more acquainted with our guests. The cost is the normal room rate plus $50 per cabin. This August weekend special cannot be booked online. Get your group of six together then call us to reserve a weekend to remember!

Romantic Ambiance charms and entices.
Upscale Amenities pamper the senses.
Spectacular Views renew the soul.
Three intimate unique cabin designs for your romantic southern Illinois getaway.
The Creole Cabin
The design inspiration for the Creole Cabin came from the Bolduc House, a French Colonial built in 1792 in Ste. Genevieve, Mo. Enjoy spectacular views from every angle of the inviting wrap around porch.
The Creole has been newly renovated from a two bedroom to a one bedroom cottage, but still has two full bathrooms - bonus!
"The Hobbit" inspired Cabins
The Cove and The Hollow were inspired by our desire to maintain the privacy of all cabins by backing the living roof structures into the hillside and, at the same time, creating the unique experience of feeling that you have stepped into your own shire.
All three cabins have a private hot tub, gas grill, gas fireplace, firepit, and all amenities you could want. Leave the day to day chaos behind and focus on what is really most important.
Stay off the grid and relax, reconnect, and renew!
