We are not currently taking any new reservations that will require travel during the months of April, May, and as of now June. While this will be an extreme financial hardship for us, we feel it is our ethical responsibility not to encourage you to travel during this uncertain time.
More time between stays will also allow us and our awesome housekeeper more time to thoroughly disinfect the cabins between stays.
For our guests that already have reservations for these months, 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.
Let us all have hope and plan for the future! We have extended our online reservation calendar out to 13 months.
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! :)

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, all three cabins have a scenic path to beautiful Blue Sky Vineyard, the premiere award winning winery on the Shawnee Hills Wine Trail.
Unique and Secluded Getaway
Now favored by our return guests, the completely renovated Creole Cabin has oodles of eclectic nuances from the French Gothic to The French Quarter. The Intimate nooks and warm romantic atmosphere is only the beginning of your enchanted stay, where stressors melt away.
Feel pampered with the extras
Abandon the day to day chaos. Relish the decadence of relaxing over a fresh cup of coffee in the morning from fresh, locally roasted coffee beans while wrapped up in a cozy robe, or simply linger over a glass of wine in the evening. Enjoy. This is your time.
French Gothic Romance
Intimate , Cozy, Enchanted Getaway
Feel like a pampered princess while soaking in your private hot tub pavilion. As the sun slips beyond the horizon, so does your tension and stress. Plush thick robes hang close by waiting to wrap around your relaxed shoulders.
One bedroom romantic retreat for two with two bathrooms.
Take a romantic sunset walk to and from beautiful Blue Sky Vineyard.
The Cove Cabin
The Cove was our first "Hobbit" style cabin. The inspiration came from our desire to maintain the privacy of all cabins by backing the living roof structure into the hillside and, at the same time, creating the unique experience of feeling that you have stepped into your own shire. The Cove has a secret path through the woods to Blue Sky Vineyard.
The Hollow Cabin
Maintaining the look and feel of The Cove, the cabin is nestled in a hollow and built deeper into the hillside. Ultimately the Hobbit styled cabins were designed to balance the unique whimsy of the Hobbit style and to provide luxurious surroundings and amenities for a spectacular getaway.

If your reservation is within three weeks, we will send you a credit voucher for what you have paid to use towards a later stay.
Our local TV station came out and chatted with us.
We are all in this together and we will work very hard to help local business stay afloat during this intense time of uncertainty.
Most of all our hearts are with everyone's health and welfare. We have a son who works for United Airlines (Sigh...), a son who works at SIU in admissions, a daughter in her senior year in high school, a 90 year old mother, friends who are doctors...
We all share in our worry and concern for the people we love and the people we do not even know.
Please call us at 618-967-7236 with any questions or concerns.
