  • Wonderful! Everything about this "Potel" was about as close to as perfect as it can get. I was staying to get some writing and research done on a layover during a book tour in the area. It was great for that purpose, but would be good for almost any other kinds of travelers as well, especially ones to the Shawnee National Forest area. Great communication, wonderful amenities, thoughtful touches throughout. Love it, and hope I get the privilege of coming back someday!

    Mattie2020-03-04T00:00:00Z
  • Perfect space. Cute place in the middle of the countryside. Tons of thoughtful touches and great decor , very clean. Loved spending a few moments on the porch watching the world go by.

  • While the cabin is rustic, it was perfect for our glamping trip. We enjoyed the lake sounds on the deck and how quiet it was there.

    Jennifer2019-09-29T00:00:00Z
  • This place is worth the price. Very good host and cabin was nice and quite with a Great Lake for fishing.

    Nicole2019-09-22T00:00:00Z
  • Loved it. Nice and cozy!

    Lisa2019-09-02T00:00:00Z
  • The perfect spot for getting in touch with nature. We needed an escape from our hectic lives and found peace, solitude and total relaxation. We had a fire both nights, were thrilled by all the calls from the tree frogs, cicadas, crickets and others we could not identify. The moon was reflecting on the water and both nights the fish were quite playful, we could hear them as the were jumping. We saw crane, herons, deer and a coyote even visited us. Having no cellular or wifi service on our phones was a huge plus....we talked, uninterrupted, such a rare event in this busy world. The cottage was exactly as described and quite comfortable and Laura responded quickly when I contacted her.

    Sheryl2019-08-11T00:00:00Z
  • We really enjoyed our stay. The location was perfect with the water right there. The mornings were my favorite with the fog on the water. The house had breakfast food and basic kitchen stuff. So if you wanna bake or something I’d recommend bringing some stuff. The area lacked cellphone service completely which we ended up really enjoying. So plan your trip before unless you have magic cellphone service. It was overall a great time and would recommend this cabin to anyone.

    Kaley2019-07-28T00:00:00Z
  • Great little cabin with an amazing price. Laura was great about communicating and had the fridge stocked with breakfast foods. Highly recommend for 2-5 people

    Aaron2019-07-17T00:00:00Z
  • The cabin was cool, clean ,and comfortable. Very close to town. A nice, peaceful place to stay. Rustic for sure, but a great value.

There are two new tennis courts available. The park is walking distance, (sidewalks) and about a mile west of the Apartment. • Trails & Hiking ~ Our favorite app for hiking is AllTrails.

Phones don’t work everywhere in the Shawnee National forest, so take a picture of your map or take a map….Google isn’t much help when she won’t connect! • Wine Trails ~ Check out this link.

And our location makes it easy to walk to restaurants, we are three blocks from the town square. Or, if you prefer use our two bikes and take a spin or walk on the Tunnel Hill bike trail or to the city park. Outside, the pagoda beckons you to relax and enjoy your time away. Keurig coffee on the pagoda by the fire pit is a good way to relax! We have a professional cleaning team after each guest, the cleaning fee goes directly to them and they do a great job. Please note that we are on multiple listing sites so if your dates are not available they are reserved by guests on other sites. You can go out for your meals or cook your own. We are within strolling distance to several restaurants if you prefer dining out. However, your kitchen has dishes, pots, pans and utensils if you want to cook. (we have local restaurant menus) Cooking is easy on the four burner electric stove with oven. Store your supplies in the full size refrigerator. There is a microwave and a Keurig coffee (provided) maker (also a Mr. Coffee maker) in the kitchen. The bathroom has a surround tub and shower with fluffy towels and upscale amenities. (shampoo, conditioner, soap, moisturizing lotion, hand soap, first aid kit, etc.) Enjoy a good night's rest on either of the three beds ( two twins in front bedroom, one queen size bed in back bedroom) or nap on the couch in the living room. Each bedroom has a walk in closet to store your "things". Each mattress has a zippered cover to protect against allergens and pests. Everyone can have a little of their own space in our apartment. We also have available if you need it, a washer and dryer in the garage under the Apartment. If you enjoy relaxing outside, there is a large patio pagoda available covered by Sunbrella fabric to block 95% of the sun's UV rays...we recommend a good book on the patio with some sweet tea or a cup of coffee as you relax to the sound of our fountains and birds singing. During the warm months, we put up the hammock and chair swing we brought from Nicaragua. We also have a (gas) outdoor fire pit if the nights are a little cool. Two outdoor dining tables and several adirondack style chairs make it easy to relax in a beautiful setting. We have two adult bikes (men & women) for guests to use. They are wonderful for taking a ride on the nearby bike trail! Just a few blocks and you are on the 45 mile Tunnel Hill Bike Trail...and...you don't have to go the entire way. #noexpectations Growing up in the south, we have a love for flowering plants and there is always something blooming in our yard until it freezes. Parking: We have one dedicated parking space outside the apartment. Let us know if you need an extra space. We want you to be comfortable and enjoy your stay.
    We are located in the historic row of homes in Harrisburg. We are a quiet, calm neighborhood where you can walk safely to stores, restaurants, or the Steam Cafe coffee shop. We love families! While you enjoy hiking and biking, there are also some preschool and children’s activities the younger families might also enjoy during your stay at the Apartment. The City Park (Paul Emery Park, 921 W. Poplar St.) is within walking or wagon pulling (we have the wagon) distance. The park has a tot lot and several playgrounds for younger and older children. It also has a basketball court, tennis court, and June 1-August 5, the community pool is open daily. (pool $3 admission fee) There is also an outdoor fitness/exercise area with some equipment to help us all stay in shape. We have bikes, a wagon, and tennis racquets/balls for your use while you are at the Apartment. Perhaps you would like to try a ride on the Tunnel Hill State bike trail which begins a few blocks from the apartment (trail is 45 miles, Harrisburg-Karnak, ask about using our 2 bikes) hiking, boating, hunting, fishing or driving in the Shawnee National Forest. You can ride or walk as little or as much as you want!

  • This cabin is AWESOME! We spent a few nights there, and we LOVED how convenient it was to the hiking around southern IL! It's a perfect launching point for Garden of the Gods, Rim Rock, and Burden Falls! It's cozy, it's charming, and perfect for slowing down!

  • Earth Dancer and Michael have created such a fun environment to stay in! We loved all of the touches in the magic bus! We had the pleasure of staying during fog, rain, and snow, and the bus stayed warm as can be with some love and attentiveness! This is a sacred, beautiful piece of land and it will touch your soul. We highly recommend unplugging from it all and recharging here! We will be returning!

    Sarah2019-10-31T00:00:00Z

    We might call this place a hideaway but the nearby activities and amenities are too numerous to list! Enjoy the secluded forest location surrounded by towering trees, abundant wildlife, and plenty of outdoor activities. Our cabin is just minutes away from the Trail of Tears, Dixon Springs State Park, the delicious Chocolate Factory, the towns of Golconda, Metropolis, and the bigger city of Paducah. NEW IN DECEMBER: We had cable TV installed for your viewing enjoyment!
    You'll be greeted by the warm, open floor plan as soon as you walk in the door. The living room, dining room, and kitchen all flow together in a great space with a smaller bedroom complete with two twin beds located downstairs. The large number of windows allow natural light to flood the inside of the cabin and treat your eyes to views of nothing but forest outside. Climb the stairs to discover a unique loft-style master bedroom and master bathroom with access to a private second story deck that gives you the impression of relaxing in a treehouse high above the forest floor.
    The cabin is located in a very quiet rural residential area about 2 minutes off of the state highway. Just about 2 minutes down the road from the cabin is Dixon Springs State Park which has many amenities to offer including walking trails, playgrounds, picnic areas, and a refreshing swimming pool to cool you off on those hot summer days. The famous Chocolate Factory is located at the entrance to the park where you can pickup dozens of handmade confections, get a cup of coffee or a soda, or treat yourself to dozens of flavors of hand-dipped ice cream.
  • Becks Hideaway is a great escape from every day life. Peaceful, beautiful surroundings, and a great kitchen to cook in. I would recommend this to anyone looking to get away for a reasonable price.

    Alexis2020-03-19T00:00:00Z
  • Great secluded spot for close access to Garden of the Gods, Cave in Rock State Park. You have access to a big Dollar general in Golconda. You also have about 30 minutes south access to an actual city with all of its amenities. The house itself was spick and span. The firewood that was provided was perfect. And the farm dog that joined us was precious. 10/10 would recommend.

    London2020-03-01T00:00:00Z

  • Beck's Hideaway is perfect for anyone looking to go offline and spend quality time with friends and family. There's no Internet and limited cell network reception but that's really the main point and beauty of it. Connie & Jack are really friendly and super helpful. They are very responsive and like to check-in to make sure you're enjoying your stay. The location is very secluded and quite peaceful. Amenities guests can enjoy include a grill, fire pit and stocked pond for fishing (though we didn't fish during our stay). Highly recommend for any one looking for a peaceful weekend getaway.

    Daryl2019-12-22T00:00:00Z

  • Such a beautiful home in a great location tucked away from it all, but still close driving distance to everything. It was so quiet there, and we could see nothing but trees in all directions at the house, a lot like many of the areas in the beautiful National Forest nearby. We only ate out once, and cooked every other meal right there in the nice sized kitchen. We stopped at the grocery before getting into town so we didn't have to make a trip out again to do anything but hike and see the sites...it worked out perfectly! Our hosts were very responsive and had the place ready and welcoming for our arrival - would definitely stay here again if ever in the area!

    A modest three-bedroom one-and-a-half bath home in the heart of Elizabethtown Illinois with amazing Ohio River views. The small town friendliness and hospitality greets you around every corner.
    Located in the middle of a small Southern Illinois town, the atmosphere is slow and relaxed. People still wave as you pass them on the road and always seem happy to help people out. Cell service is very limited in the area. The home has WiFi for your stay and smart TVs equipped with Netflix and Hulu.
  • 5 star stay! This tiny Town was welcoming, and there was so much outdoor fun close by. The house was great, all the way down to the little details. Excellent communication with tons of games to play! Worth a visit!

    Ellie2020-03-16T00:00:00Z
  • Safe, quiet, clean. Exactly what we were looking for. Elizabethtown is a quiet little, old historic river town. Be aware that there is not much in the way of restaurants (at least in the middle of winter). Cave In Rock State Park has an restaurant about ten minutes away. It’s a good value and the catfish was terrific. If you are coming from Kentucky, you will probably cross the Ohio River via a free ferry boat, which was remarkably quick and fun!

    David F2019-12-30T00:00:00Z
  • It was a great stay at a beautiful place! Thank you very much for everything!

    Kivanc2019-12-01T00:00:00Z
  • Spent time in Shawnee National Forest and the home was perfect for our visit

    Joe2019-11-25T00:00:00Z
  • It’s exactly what’s advertised

    David 2019-11-17T00:00:00Z
  • Bonnie was very responsive to each question I had. Her place is in a great location to explore the Amish community in nearby Marion, KY, as well as, Cave in Rock, Garden of the Gods and Bell Smith Springs. We enjoyed the fish restaurant in Elizabethtown that is right on the water and another restaurant in Golconda had tasty food and enjoyable atmosphere. The kitchen at Bonnie’s is set up conveniently for fixing meals. The location is very peaceful and quiet; it provided a relaxing getaway, but (for us) close to home.

    Janis2019-10-22T00:00:00Z
  • Super communications from the host and beautiful location. Spacious and well laid out place. Loved it!!!

    Reynard2019-10-19T00:00:00Z

    Immerse yourself in nature in this beautifully handcrafted eco-home in the heart of the Shawnee Forest. Dancing Bear Cottage is the perfect place to unwind solo, or spend time with a group, with two bedrooms and a loft, spacious living room and kitchen, wi-fi and flat screen tv, and deck overlooking the forest. Remote and serene, this whimsical home in the magical Shawnee woodland is central to many natural wonders, including Garden of the Gods, Rim Rock Trail and Cave-In-Rock state park.
    Dancing Bear Cottage is a magical space, with touches of art and whimsy around every corner. The sense of peace and serenity in this place is palpable. It's centrally located in the heart of Hardin County, right smack in the middle of nowhere. If you're on the gravel, then you're on the right street! This home was crafted with much love, and recently renovated from a small-wattage-solar powered homestead, to a retreat home with the bells and whistles of the modern world, including power and wi-fi. The smart TV has apps pre-loaded, with free access to several channels. Bring your passwords for whatever channel apps you prefer, as well, like Sling or Hulu. The kitchen has a small fridge, microwave, a two burner hot plate, a coffee maker, and pots and pans, dishes and utensils, coffee, teas, oatmeal packs, snacks and stuff like that. Anything you see in the kitchen is yours to enjoy! There's a large kitchen table with 4 chairs, hand-painted purple and cream checkerboard floor, art deco chandeliers, and huge picture windows overlooking the deck and the forest beyond it. The living room boasts a soaring cathedral ceiling with skylight, a yoga area, a comfy couch, large smart TV, stained glass lamp and elegant rug, games, and the world's tiniest bookstore...set to a backdrop of gorgeous wood and soothing green interiors. The beds are all new, purchased in Spring 2019. The 1st bedroom, "Wood Haven room", has a queen bed. You are surrounded by beautiful wood interior, with windows overlooking nothing but forest as far as the eye can see. The second bedroom, "The Lavender room", has whimsical barn-wood walls and a cozy full bed. The loft, "Sky-gazer Heights", is accessible by peg ladder, and has a queen sized bed. (But please don't let young children or reckless adults go up there, as it is high up and doesn't have a secure wall separating it from the drop-off.) It can get hot up there in summer, but there is an opening sky light up there and a fan available, and it's a lovely place to stargaze or watch the clouds drift past. The bathroom has a shower/bathtub, cushy towels and washcloths, shampoo/conditioner/products. There are window unit AC's for the main bedroom and the kitchen, as well as fans. There are space heaters throught, and electric blankets. Space heaters during the colder months will take the chill off. There is also a woodstove, but would only be trusted for use by someone accustomed to woodstoves, and requires permission. The deck hosts a bistro table, and is a great place to hang out or enjoy meals or beverages. The fire pit area is just beyond the deck. "Please be responsible with your fire", says Smokey Bear. The Shawnee Forest needs your awareness. This place is IN THE WOODS, ya'll...so be prepared for everything that comes along with it. If you are afraid of bugs, wildlife, and dirt...this isn't the place for you. If you love quiet nights, the sounds of nature, privacy, stars, solitude, and wild woods...this is your jam! Phone service may not be totally reliable out here, so make sure you have directions on hard copy before you set out, and please arrive before dark so you can see to check in and so you don't get lost on the endless back-roads. The house has it's quirks, but is overall "user friendly" and set up for being pretty "self-explanatory". There is a short walk from the parking area to the house, and the entry keypad is on the back door. You will receive a code and directional hints before your check-in.
    Your neighbors are the deer, the piliated woodpecker, the owls and friendly trees. At Dancing Bear Cottage, you are centrally located to Garden of the Gods, Rim Rock Trail, Cave in Rock, Elizabethtown, and Iron Furnace. There is so much nature to see and do! Not much civilization, though. In towns like E'town and Cave, you will find very basic amenities, like gas and convenience stores, and perhaps a place to eat. If you want civilization in profusion, you'll have to travel. The nearest "big town" is Harrisburg IL, which has all your basic town stuff, like Kroger, movie theater, and multiple restaurants to choose from. Marion, KY is a fun little trip as well, across the Cave-In-Rock river ferry, and through Amish country. Paducah is quite the jaunt, but well worth the journey, for its fabulous foodie scene, and art and music scene.
  • Fits right in with the beautiful Shawnee forest. It was a great place for a late fall/early winter getaway. The host communicates honestly and promptly, genuinely cares about the guests. We enjoyed the fire pit in the back and they even provided firewood. Great location, we were able to visit Cave in Rock, Rim Rock, and Garden of the Gods in one afternoon.

    Linda2019-11-17T00:00:00Z
  • Cabin was amazing and in the beautiful forest setting, definitely will be back.

    Shawn2019-11-10T00:00:00Z
  • The place was so much fun and nice. Being all by itself in the woods was wonderful. The modern technology added a nice touch. Having fire wood for an outdoor fire and having items to make smores was great. Loved the place and will certainly return sometime. Being back in the woods but yet with super fast internet was great.

    Richard2019-10-31T00:00:00Z
  • The place is just as described, right in the woods. Just big enough for a couple or small family, just large enough with three bedrooms. We didn't even need to use the space heaters, as even when it got down to the 40s at night, the cozy, warm blankets provided kept us quite toasty. LOVED having Netflix, as I don't have it at home; and it worked fine despite the remoteness. Plenty of towels, soap, TP and other necessities are provided. If you like stargazing and silence and peace, this is it. Nice little porch/deck area for sitting outside with morning coffee or a glass of wine at night. We were at first concerned about the smaller fridge and only hot plates, but it was just fine for storage and cooking for three days. The cottage is easier to find than we thought, too; and way close to great Shawnee Forest hiking areas.

    Ellen2019-10-29T00:00:00Z
  • Dancing Bear was exactly as described but even better!! Cabin had everything we could have needed and more!! It is very secluded and was an amazing place to get away and reconnect with my family!! Located close to so many neat attractions. Definitely find it in daylight the first time as it can be slightly tricky and use the GPS coordinates as that will get you exactly to the house !!! Communication with cabin owners before and during was quick and easy!!!! Highly recommend !!!

    Bobbie2019-10-14T00:00:00Z
  • Best set and setting to escape to in Shawnee

    Kyle2019-09-29T00:00:00Z
  • The house is great and build by the host itself. It's fun to discover the nice little details he has built in. It is exactly how described: in the middle of nowhere with the forest around you. We loved it! It is the perfect place to get away from stressfull city life and we would definetly come here more often, if we'd live in the States. One of the best tips we got from Intervowen is to get grocerys before coming. It takes quite a while to get to the next supermarket. Also when you drive there, copy the coordinates from the description and insert them into google maps. Don't go straight from the airbnb app to google maps. You will end up 1 mile away from the house. :)

    Lena2019-09-15T00:00:00Z
  • This secluded cabin was just what we were looking for. We spent most of our time out hiking and exploring, and the cabin was a perfect place to reset between our adventures. Definitely follow Earthdancer's instructions for arrival because it would be very hard to find if you don't. This is definitely a place we would like to come back to next time we are down in Southern Illinois!

  • Had an amazing time. Thank you for all the special touches. You will feel right at home.

    Khristy2020-02-16T00:00:00Z

    Jessica2020-02-11T00:00:00Z

    Jeanette2020-01-13T00:00:00Z
  • Great hospitality and every detail thought about by the hosts. The history of the home as well Eldorado were a welcomed addition.

    Jody2019-12-31T00:00:00Z
  • Incredible stay. House photos are great, but do not do it justice. Wonderful to meet the hosts, and they were so friendly. House was very clean, and loved all the holiday touches around the house including the tree. House was huge, and loved getting to be right downtown in Eldorado close to everything and with a safe feeling. Updated kitchen is a great touch, and the house is warm and inviting for family events. Will definitely be returning and staying again.

    Andy2019-12-25T00:00:00Z

  • The CB home was much more than we had anticipated. Check in was simple. The home had everything we could have needed during our stay. The wine, beverages, and snacks were unexpected but such a nice touch. The home is spacious yet cozy. The nature of our visit was to spend time with our family who lives nearby. But for those vacationing and wishing to visit the sites around Southern Illinois, it is perfectly located and such a value compared to motels/hotels in the area. This home is the perfect package!

    Cabin with 2 bedrooms with Amish made beds one Queen size and one Full size. Open living area with Amish made furniture and a couch that pulls out to a Full size bed. Non-operating fireplace. Washer and dryer for your convenience. Enjoy the pool table while visiting. Sit and relax on the deck enjoying the open view of the Ohio river. Within walking distance of the E-town River restaurant, antique store, Historic Rose Hotel, and the local Pub.
  • The cabin was great. We loved the Amish furniture. Short walk to the river and floating restaurant. The fish at the restaurant was great. The view on the deck was so nice. Would love to stay again but a little longer than one day.

    Bonnie2019-10-25T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed at Greg's cabin on the river for one night, but wish we had more time there. The history of the area is really interesting. The cabin was clean and comfortable and we had a great time playing pool and sitting on the deck. We hope to go back someday!

    Kelly2019-10-13T00:00:00Z

    Debbie2019-04-14T00:00:00Z
  • Awesome place, will surely come by next time. Very well equipped with all amenities. Lots of fun activities in the cabin itself like pool, griller, chess, cards etc. Not to mention the theme of Shady rest to the cabin, it was good to learn about the local history. The cabin has a very authentic local feel. Correction to previous comments - ATnT does receive on/off coverage and data.

    Our cozy home is located in the heart of Harrisburg, which is known as the "Gateway to the Shawnee National Forest." The home is just three blocks away from the best restaurant in town, and is within walking distance to other downtown shops/restaurants. The Tunnel Hill Bike Path is only one block away, and the beautiful Shawnee Garden of the Gods is a scenic 22-mile drive away. Come put your feet up on our screened-in porch between hikes and watch the squirrels play in our park-like backyard!
    Guests have full use of the house. The master bedroom has a memory foam king bed, and the middle guest room has a queen bed and a daybed for extra sleeping space. There is a third bedroom with a full-sized bed located on the upper floor (which is an unfinished attic, but the dormer bedroom is finished - teens will love it!). There is also a blow-up full-sized air mattress for additional guests, or feel free to sleep on the two sofas. While there is only one bathroom and shower (no tub) on the main floor, there is another toilet and utility sink in the basement, and guests are welcome to use the washer and dryer in the basement. (NOTE: because this is a 100-year-old house, some of the doors are very narrow, including the bathroom door, and would not be wide enough to accommodate a wheelchair. There are several glass cabinets and tall bookshelves that are not secured to the wall, so our home is not suitable for very small children unless they are under constant supervision). The kitchen is equipped with all the implements and utensils you will need to cook your own food, and there is a kitchen table as well as a separate dining room table for you to enjoy your meals. There's a barbecue grill and picnic table in the back yard to create some outdoor meals, or take your plates to the screened-in porch table. The living area is bright and open with lots of hard wood floors and six-foot high windows, with views of the beautiful Illinois foliage from every window. Relax in the morning with a cup of coffee or tea in our window-lined sunroom or create some artwork on our craft table. While the a/c and heat work great, feel free to make a cozy fire in the fireplace on chilly nights, or unwind on the porch in the back and watch the fireflies, cardinals and myriad other birds in our park-like backyard (the squirrels' tree-jumping escapades provide great entertainment!) The t.v. in the den has cable and also Roku to catch a movie or special show and also has a Blue-Ray player, and the middle guest room has a DVD player - feel free to watch our DVDs or rent from a nearby Red Box. The best part of the home is that you can enjoy all the comforts of town, with hiking, biking, fishing and hunting just a short drive or walk away. Come see what this beautiful corner of Southern Illinois has to offer!
  • Staying in this home was a wonderful treat. Part of the wonderful-ness is that this is a big, old house. The rooms are large and spacious and Leigh provides all the essentials needed for a stay. I was on a solo trip, but a larger family of 4 or 5 would feel very comfortable. While I didn’t engage in any outdoor activities on this trip to the area, I know from experience that there are a ton of outdoor activities available and this location is pivotal to all those.

    Martha2020-03-22T00:00:00Z
  • Great place in a good location. Clean and lots of amenities.

    Verlinda2019-12-29T00:00:00Z
  • Wonderful stay in downtown Harrisburg. Close to yummy restaurants and a fabulous coffee shop (Steam). It’s also still close enough for a trip to Shawnee National forest’s Garden of the Gods for breathtaking views and hiking! The house was fully equipped with everything we needed for our 2week getaway. Would highly recommend!!

    Cassie & Josh2019-12-20T00:00:00Z
  • We have a hunting lease in Pope County and this home is very convenient to our property. It’s great to come back to a warm and comfortable home at the end of the day. This is a great house in the center of town and we were very impressed with the communication and ease of checking in and out. We stayed twice this year and plan to stay here in the future. I highly recommend this home.

    Mike2019-12-08T00:00:00Z
  • The house was bigger than anticipated based on the pictures and check-in was very easy and convenient. The bedroom in the attic wasn’t quite as comfortable as the rest of the house, but overall, our stay was very enjoyable, it was a great value, and we would definitely stay again!

    John2019-12-01T00:00:00Z

  • Tami's cottage was absolutely lovely. It was the perfect space to come back to after enjoying all the nature and parks that the area had to offer. I definitely recommend!

    Jackielyn2019-09-15T00:00:00Z
  • Tami has done a phenomenal job of making this place feel like a home away from home. It has everything you need and its within a half hour of any Shawnee attraction you're looking for. We look forward to coming back and the first place we'll be looking to stay will be here!

    Andres2019-09-08T00:00:00Z
  • Great place! Very clean and welcoming. The theme was fun and cute. We loved the location and the scenery. It was very convenient driving to places like Garden of the Gods and Glendale Stables. We enjoyed some fishing at some of the nearby lakes, the river and even the pond in front of the house. We continuously spotted the family of deer near the airbnb, so we were always very cautious when driving down the road near the house. I would definitely recommend this airbnb if you want to get away from the city and do a lot of hiking.

    Shauna2019-09-02T00:00:00Z
  • Tami's place was a lovely and relaxing place to spend the weekend. The space itself had all the emenities that you need for a comfortable stay and the outdoor space was wonderful. The sunsets and star gazing from the front porch were spectacular. Only a 30 minute drive to garden of the gods. Loved this place! Thanks Tami!

    Danielle2019-08-25T00:00:00Z
  • Great stay! Tami was so kind, and thoughtful touches everywhere. Cottage was very clean and inviting. Deck is a lovely place to sit out in the morning or evening and watch the wildlife. Thank you, Tami!

    Gail2019-08-19T00:00:00Z
  • Tami’s place is a quiet get away that is very close to many great hiking options! The space was perfect for me and my significant other, and was exceptionally clean. We will certainly be back on our next trip to the Shawnee National Forest.

  • This was a great place to stay. We love it and the little town is just what we were looking for. Great place for a girls weekend. We had a blast. Very clean and close to town. She was very quick to respond to my questions.

    Brittany2019-10-06T00:00:00Z
  • Very clean open space, lots of parking and a great back yard and deck to hang out in. Can walk to Marina and downtown Golconda.

  • Simple, clean accommodations. Our family of four enjoyed the peace and quiet, and easy access to lots of beautiful sights in the Shawnee Forest. Lots of room outside for the kids to run around, as well. We'll happily stay here again if we return to the area.

    Taimur2019-03-28T00:00:00Z
  • Highly recommend this nice airbnb, very clean and it felt like home.

    Dan2019-03-13T00:00:00Z
  • This place was fabulous! It was spotlessly clean and very spacious. After being there about 15 minutes my 8 year old said "Mom, I feel really comfortable here." The furniture and linens are in good shape and well maintained. The location is perfect, just across the gravel way is the river, and the views are stunning. There is a lovely walking path along the river that leads to the little downtown with the historic society storefront and a nice walk to the historic Golconda cemetery. This place is a true get away with just the right mix of seclusion and peaceful town exploring. My favorite part was drinking coffee on the front porch watching the blue jays and woodpecker in the oak tree. It's about a 30 minute drive to Garden of the Gods, which is a "must visit" site, but even the drive is gorgeous and relaxing.

    Angie2018-10-21T00:00:00Z

    Golconda, IL, United States

    This home is in a small quiet town that is called Golconda, which is in Pope County Illinois. Pope County Illinois is in the middle of Shawnee National Forest. It has 3 bedrooms with a full size bed in each room. It has a full size bathroom with a shower in the master bedroom and another 1/2 bathroom up front right off of the living room. The kitchen has everything you will need to cook any meal you choose.The living room has lots of room to entertain with chairs for 15 people. We just bought new mattress for the full sizes beds. I also have bought a new flat 32inch screen TV with a DVD player for the living room. We do not have cable or WIFi because we are trying to keep it as affordable as possible. The majority of individuals have the internet on their phone. Our place isn't fancy. It's has the basics. It's the cheapest place in town to stay. You get a whole house. We are trying to provide afforable accommodation for the average working class.
    This property is only 1/2 mile from Golconda Marina, which is on the Ohio River. Golconda Marina rents boats and has anything you will need to fish and for your boat. Shawnee National Forest surrounds Golconda. There are many attractions and activities guest should consider. The following State parks are worth your time to check out. Garden of the Gods hikes are totally breath taking. Indian Kitchen is an area where Native American Indians would run wild game over the towering cliffs to the bottom of the creek bed and that would turn that area into a "kitchen". It is about a 1/2 mile hike back to the kitchen. Wear good hiking shoes and a bathing suit under your long sleeves and pants. Because you will want to stay all day long swimming and exploring the area. Bell Smith Springs is another State park that has awesome hiking and swimming areas. Dixon Springs Park also has numerous areas to hike and a public swimming pool. Pope County is know as the Sportsman Paradise because of the huge White Tail Deer who live here. If you are interested in deer hunting,my Father in Law has 700 acres he leases out to hunters to bow hunt and for two weeks during shot gun season. His name is Rue Berger and his number is (PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN) . Come ready to enjoy the great outdoors. If you prefer to just hang out. There is The Luck Creek Video Gaming and The Driver Down. Both place have my two thumbs up for awesome food and fun!
    Very Quiet peaceful neighbors.
  • We have stayed at Janet's two years in a row and hopefully will have an opportunity to stay there again in the future.

    Janis2019-08-03T00:00:00Z
  • Very clean and great for a place to sleep on a long journey. Plenty of space and beds for the grandkids and us. I'm glad we were able to book the same place for both the travel to Des Moines and the travel home.

    Janis2019-07-28T00:00:00Z
  • If you are looking for just a good, clean, and cheaper place to sleep, (which is all I needed), this place is perfect.. We were even able to park 3 boats with trucks.. If you are after fancy and spacious, this isn't for you..

  • Our stay at Laken’s place was really nice. The space was bigger than we thought it was going to be and is a great location for nature lovers and history buffs. There were accurate directions to Mantle Rock, Trail of Tears area, nature sanctuaries, and the Ohio River is nearby. The stars at night were fantastic! It was very peaceful!

  • Great lodging at a great price! Exactly what I needed for my weekend hiking trip at Shawnee National Forest

    Eddie2020-02-02T00:00:00Z
  • The managers of the property switched me to a different room, however they told me about 48 hours in advance (which gave me plenty of time) with a thorough explanation, as they placed me into a better room. It was all smooth sailing. Furthermore, they explained the check-in process in detail, which helped me out of a jam as I arrived later than expected. Nevertheless, they were kind and accommodating. If you’re on a cross country road-trip looking to crash for the night, then look no further if you happen to be in Southern Illinois. You get a lot bang for your buck. These hosts have it down to a science!

    Mark2019-05-10T00:00:00Z

Enjoy the scenery while sitting outside on deck and cooking on the gas grill. Walking distance to the scenic Ohio River, E-town River Restaurant, antique store, local pub and Historic Rose Hotel.
  • It was a really nice and clean and cozy lodge to stay in and very close to Cave-In-Rock Park . But if you are looking for a stay in the nature setting it’s right downtown. So not much to look at unless you walk down around the river.

    Matt2019-07-28T00:00:00Z
  • It’s a very quiet quaint loft, with a rustic decor. Great for a night away with simplicity. Bar and restaurant within eye sight of the loft and provides a fun environment to relax and eat. The lodge itself is wonderfully decorated and all amenities were top notch.

  • Loved the place and host. The check in process was smooth and the host was gracious enough to allow us for late check in and late check out. The place was very clean. It was cleaned again after our first day’s stay. The host even put in a microwave in the room as per our request. Very happy with the hospitality. They were mostly prompt with their responses to our queries. Would love to stay here again.

    Shane2019-06-15T00:00:00Z
  • Our stay at Unity Lodge was great! We had to change our dates a couple of times and the hosts were extremely prompt and gracious. The day before our trip, I got a message from them saying that the room we were originally assigned had some unforseen maintenance pending because of some damage caused by another guest. Angela upgraded us to their bigger room at no extra cost to us. The beds were made for us every night, and the room was clean and comfortable. We wanted more coffee filters in our room, and yet again, Angela was prompt to respond and brought them to our room within the hour. Great value for money and wonderful hosts! The town of Golconda is small and sweet. A few attractions and trails in Shawnee National Forest are short drives away. We enjoyed our stay very much.

    Ishita2019-06-02T00:00:00Z
  • Stayed in Unity Lodge for three nights while doing a solo trip around southern Illinois. The location was great for accessing the Shawnee National Forest and the other small towns around this area, the room was nice and clean and the AC worked well (thank goodness because it was very warm out). The hosts were responsive and helpful--when I asked if there was a coffee maker in the room they put one in there for me with grounds and filters. Super considerate and practical. Highly recommend!

    Camille2019-05-19T00:00:00Z
  • My friend and I stopped by Unity Lodging after exploring Shawnee National Forest.

  • The house was in a remote place and it was very peaceful. In the morning, there were lots of deer you could watch grazing out the back window. I had 7 teenagers with me (and my wife) and we all had plenty of room. We were passing through, but I wish I would have had more time to relax on the porch and enjoy the scenery.

    Drew2020-01-05T00:00:00Z
  • Had a wonderful Christmas stay with my husband's family. This beautiful home & property provided plenty of room for all eight of us. :) Angela went above and beyond to make sure we were comfortable and had everything we needed--including a decorated Christmas tree. We drove to Ned's Shed to eat (super yummy if you like dives) and visited Garden of the Gods. We also went to Big Springs State Park multiple times and stopped at the delicious chocolate factory. A big thanks to Angela and Shawn for opening this home and giving us a space to make tons of Christmas memories.

    Ami2019-12-28T00:00:00Z
  • They are great host and thank you so much for being great host!! I loved the touches! We had a walnut in our bed though. The table was a little sticky when we arrived too. I loved the pool table and the best back porch with an amazing view! They have WiFi which is good because we didn’t have signal there! We will definitely want to stay here again! It was great! They even had fuzzy blankets in the closet. Be sure to bring something like creamer or sugar to add to your coffee! Loved it! All I heard was from my party was this place is awesome! definitely recommend!

    Kalene2019-10-20T00:00:00Z
  • Loved the amenities offered, vintage decor, view off the back deck while sipping our coffee...the pool table & darts was great entertainment for my kids too. Thanks for moving up our reservation due to rain in the forecast- greatly appreciated that lots! We recommend if you stay here, to try out the Garden of the Gods, Lambert’s Cafe, & Chocolate Factory if you’re time allows. We also ventured to Iron Furnace, Cave in a Rock, & Pizza by the Pound (crust made w/ honey and served with honey). This house is centrally located around great destination points..and private to enjoy “Gods Country.”

  • We had a great time here! Carrie was amazing and responded to our questions immediately. The place is cute and well stocked with necessities. There was a boil water advisory when we came and she brought us a case of bottled water in the rain without us asking! Too boot, I mentioned it was my boyfriend's birthday weekend and she had a special surprise waiting for him! Property is beautiful, hot tub was nice. Thank you for an amazing weekend!!!

  • The sitting room in the back of the house upstairs feels like being in a Dutch painting! A very lovely and quaint setting with views of the Ohio River. We stayed for only a short time but had central access to everything we wanted to do in the area—groceries at Bob’s Food Mart in Rosiclare, Cave-in-Rock, Garden of the Gods. And it was a little adventure for our family to stay in a very old house with all the fun quirks, but with modern amenities. We enjoyed a game night in the large dining room and everyone slept well in the spacious bedrooms. Would definitely recommend!
