Beer bottles built in the bedroom straw bale walls filter the morning sun The tiled bathrooms feature a shower-tub, beautiful wood slab sink tops, and luxurious bath towels

Large oak beams and Sassafras wood paneling showcase the craftsmanship throughout the cottage. The earthen plaster sculpted lighted sconces add another one-of-a-kind touch to this unique cabin in Southern Illinois.

With its walk-on earthen living roof, it is nearly concealed from sight.

 Adjacent to Giant City State Park and centrally located on the Shawnee Hills Wine Trail this cottage is in the perfect location.
