Sometimes you just need to get away — from work, the day-to-day, the cell phone — life! Audrey’s Abode is just the place you have been looking for to relax and reconnect with family, friends, nature and a simpler time. Located on a 7 acre hobby farm just south of Jacksonville, Illinois (30 minutes west of Springfield), Audrey’s Abode is a fully restored historic log cabin with all the modern amenities for a comfortable getaway.
“This place was a hidden gem! We just needed a spot to stay for the night and now I want to go back and stay for a week. It’s so full of history and peaceful rest. We had fun reading up on where the canon came from and how they restored it. I loved that it’s near so many historic spots. It’s a great spot for history geeks like me and my family. 😊 🤓”

(Bar, TV, and pinball machine). The Master Suite, has a private balcony with table and chairs to watch the sun come up. There are 2 Wineries, an Apple Orchard, Native American museum, and a National Wildlife Refuge within 5 miles of the house...and ofcourse, you can bring your dog!
“From beginning to end, Craig and Pam made sure that our stay in their cabin was perfect. This place was the perfect location for our group stay. With enough room for 8 people to sleep very comfortably, spacious living areas to get together as a group, and outside deck areas to take in the rural Illinois countryside, we had all the fixings for a perfect weekend. The owners are so sweet, and even left us a little welcome treat to start the night of right. I will definitely be back for another stay.”

“My husband and I had such a great night at Nancy's loft! It was a beautiful October evening and she already had wood in the fire pit and extra available so we could spend a lovely evening outdoors. The loft itself embraces the historic era of the building and is cozy and comfortable. If we hadn't been on a road trip with other places to be we would have been begging to stay another night (or week)! We are already planning on how we can arrange our vacation next year to include another stay. Thank you Nancy! It was a pleasure to get to meet you and we appreciate what you have done to restore a beautiful piece of history!”
