cabin rentals in the woods

Our cottages provide the quintessential Southern Illinois cottage in the woods experience.


In addition to our Inn Suites, we have three cottages. The cottages were built with straw bale walls and an earthen plaster finish (using clay, sand and straw) to create a beautiful interior and exterior wall.  They also use timber framing with local, sustainably harvested lumber.  And to top it all of, they have living roofs – yes with grass and plants growing up there. This organic design leaves no want for comfort as each cottage has all the amenities, including a heavenly king-size beds with 600-thread-count linens. Not to mention, the bathroom is supplied with luxurious towels, a soaking tub, and wet room shower.

The design of all our cottages are all about comfortable, cozy, efficient layouts. They are the perfect place to unplug, unwind, and relax. The natural surroundings creates an incredibly peaceful setting.
