Welcome to The Hollow, our unique Southern Illinois Cabin with a living roof.

No Pets Allowed at The Hollow Cabin.
Pets allowed at The Cove and The French Creole only.

Welcome To The Hollow

The Hollow is nestled on the edge of the Shawnee National Forest in the hollow on the eastern side of the ridge of our property. Most of the cabin is built into a hill, giving it a natural living roof.

The Hollow is, for the most part, exactly the same as The Cove, maintaining our original design with a few adjustments working with the shape of the land and interior additions, such as the kitchen peninsula under an arched wall. Of course, all the amenities are the same, including the hot tub on the covered private patio outside the bedroom, luxurious robes, fresh whole bean coffee.

With the fully equipped kitchen, you can enjoy a romantic dinner at the beautiful bar height table in the alcove, or savor a glass of wine at the peninsula where you can see the fireplace, TV, and catch glimpses of the woods and wildlife through the windows.

Walk through the round door into luxurious, uncluttered simplicity, and let the rest of the world disappear. Bonus - walking distance to Blue Sky Vineyard.

Come to beautiful southern Illinois and stay at one of our unique cabins.

The Hollow
  • Decadent king size bed with Tempurpedic mattress and Isotonic pillows
  • Step into your own enchanted world
  • Soak in the view and let life's stressors ebb away

Craftsmanship and detail are what we do.
So, if you would, step through the round door and walk with me.

"As I roam from room to room...

with the 9 foot curved ceilings, I run my hands along the rich and elegant wainscot, letting the gentle flow of the house bring serenity to my mind. The fireplace is already telling stories of proposals, laughter, new loves, and the rekindling of old loves. The natural glow from the sun tunnels gently touches the walls while the whimsical sconces whisper promises of romance and soft music. My eye is continuously drawn to the unique windows that provide glimpses of the woodland, occasionally privileging me with its inhabitants. Today, a doe appears with her two yearlings; the squirrels unbothered. Outside the bedroom door, the towering patio brick wall evokes thoughts of a luxurious private soak in the exquisite hot tub, enveloped in soft, warm bubbles on a cold winter's night; the forest's night time song providing a magical, mysterious backdrop. Anticipation."
