New Tiny home nestled on the edge of the Shawnee National Forest. A cozy one bedroom with full closet and stacked washer and dryer the bed is a full size. Kitchen with stove, fridge and microwave. It does not have a dishwasher. Living room has a smart TV sign in to your Netflix, Sling, YouTubeTV etc. Wi-fi provided. No cable. Full bathroom with shower unit. Some of our guest has said sitting on the porch watching the beautiful sunsets each night was an added bonus for staying with us.
It is located on our family farm one mile from the town of Ozark. You will have one close neighbor across the road. And we are located right down the hill. The neighbors in between are our 2 children on their own farms. It's a quit neighborhood for farm life. We own cattle so you may hear cows, dogs and frogs with the windows open.
We live in a very rural area. We are 15 to 20 minutes to local towns Vienna Il or Carrier Mills. 25min to Marion Il. And an hour from Carbondale and Paducah Ky is about 45min. The Shawnee National Forest is in our backyard, We are 10 minutes to the Tunnel Hill State bike trail not only for bikes but a great walking path also. Hiking in Bells Smith Springs located in Pope Co, Jackson Falls for hiking. Great Hunting and fishing spots are everywhere here. You can go to our facebook page The Potel and we have several links of area places and things to do
  • 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!

  • 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.

  • What a nice couple. Simi was incredibly responsive in the days leading up to my trip, answering any and all of my questions. Additionally, Darren kindly showed up upon my check-in and gave me an orientation of sorts on the house. The house was great, too. It was small, but managed to fit in essential spaces (bedroom, living area, kitchen, bathroom) without feeling cramped. Additionally, Darren and Simi were kind enough to provide a binder of suggestions. If you’re looking for a unique and fun stay at a good value, pick the Potel.

  • The description says 'tiny' but we had a wonderful experience as a group of five staying at this location. The views of the lake were awesome! The space is truly cozy and inviting, and the comfy beds and quiet surroundings lead to relaxing sleep. Definitely aces!

  • Maura was very attentive to the needs of her guests. She made sure to remind me of where the extra blankets were stored once it was clear the weather would be chilly at night. She also was kind enough to let us check out a bit late, which made our morning lovely. We had time to shower after our morning hike and drive home clean :) House is so cute, property is lovely. we had a nice time in the fall--I can imagine this is a great spot in the summer for a family.

    Kristin2019-11-03T00:00:00Z
  • My boyfriend an I took a trip to the area to hike, canoe, and enjoy the local wine. The location of the cabin was perfect and central to everything we wanted to do! The cabin itself was spotless, cozy, and absolutely perfect for what we needed. Maura did an amazing job at making us feel like we were at home. Everything we needed was there. We would definitely come back and stay here again.

    Kristina2019-10-25T00:00:00Z
  • Wonderful little cabin on the lake!

    Cheyenne2019-10-21T00:00:00Z
  • This place was great! It was a little cold to swim but we enjoyed going down to the dock. It was just enough space for all of us.

    Samantha2019-10-12T00:00:00Z
  • The Tiny Cabin was amazing. It was small and intimate. My parents are older and I truly enjoyed this time with them. It was nice to be so close. Maura thought of everything and stayed in close contact with us, but was not intrusive. She was very honest about her space. The grade down to the water is steep, but this is hill country and to be expected. My elderly parents climbed the hill several times a day to go to the water. It’s steep, but you do not need to be an athlete.

    Mica2019-09-30T00:00:00Z
  • Such a lovely, clean and inviting space. The deck and outdoor space is incredible. We had such a great time unwinding at the end of the day grilling and hanging out on the porch. The dock was a great place to float and relax. The whole stay was wonderful.

    Kaitlyn2019-09-22T00:00:00Z
  • Maura’s place was so cute and very clean. My kids absolutely loved the loft area. They had their own fans, lamps, and extra blankets if needed. Absolutely everything was sparkling clean! The house came with movies, games, kitchen necessities plus extras like coffee, snacks, etc., the bathroom was fully stocked with plenty of towels, soaps, toiletries, and even a first aid kit. Every bed was comfortable including the blankets and pillows. The place was absolutely cozy! We loved being so close together in the tiny home. The porch was my favorite place. My son loved the hammock and my daughter and I played checkers on the table. In the evening, I was able to sit on the porch while my kids and dog played just below. The lights that are hung up around the porch gives it the perfect ambiance at night. The grill and fire pit was right there by the porch making everything easy to get to and use. There was wood, charcoal, and lighter fluid already there for us to use. We spent a whole day down on the dock. My husband and son fished while my daughter and I had fun on the Lilly pad. Pack light going down there because coming up is quite the workout. It didn’t stop us from going though. The next day we drove less than five miles to Ferne Clyffe and hiked a few different trails. We had a great time. Maura was very good about responding quickly for any questions. I would definitely stay here again. Thanks so much Maura!!!

  • Connie went above and beyond to make sure my son and I were comfortable during our stay! I just wish our stay was longer than it was. If I am ever in the area again I would love to stay here.

    Shannon Camp2020-03-03T00:00:00Z
  • Perfect!

    Amanda2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • This wonderful little place was a welcome respite from long traveling. Rustic enough to be charming but completely comfortable and safe. Very relaxing with a gorgeous view.

    J Brandon2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • Connie’s place is a great, private, country get away!

    James2020-02-15T00:00:00Z
  • absolutely loved it, such a great place! if we ever come back to illinois I would definitely stay again!

    Kayla2020-02-02T00:00:00Z
  • Absolutely an amazing stay. I’ve stayed at many Airbnb’s and this one has the most amazing host. Brought us fresh baked (still warm) chocolate chip cookies with hot chocolate and also a bit of amaretto for our drinks. She really is an amazing host. And the place is very cozy... highly recommend.

    Matthew2020-01-19T00:00:00Z
  • Had a wonderful weekend at Connie’s place. We arrived after 11pm, so it was dark, and had been raining so there was mud. Our little Kia Soul got stuck haha but Connie and her son were quick to pull us out first thing in the morning. The farmhouse is so cute and cozy, very clean and has all the little thing you forgot at home. The bed was SO comfortable I never wanted to leave, which is good because it rained for the first day of our trip keeping us indoors. On our last day we took a nice walk around the pond, pet the horses, and made our way to Ferne Clyffe state park. It is only 15 minutes away, and was recommended by Connie. She was spot on, it was beautiful and we didn’t even have time to see the famous falls. I recommend packing a flashlight to bring if you have a dog, needed it to walk ours after dark! Otherwise this place is perfect for a quiet escape.

    Shayna2020-01-12T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed a second time at Connie’s farmhouse and it was just as good as the first stay. We love how easy the place is to get to, and walking our dog around her pond.

    HIKERS! QUILTERS! HORSEBACK RIDERS! HUNTERS! Just 3 miles off I/24 in southern Illinois, ½ mile off the River To River Trail, midway on the 120-mile trail in the Shawnee National Forest. Private location; no traffic or noise except wildlife! Six miles from Vienna, 35 miles north of Paducah, KY and 25 miles south of Marion, IL. Besides the two bedrooms, there's two RV electric and water hookups available but room for 2-3 more (no electric or water) depending on size of rigs.
    Bring your horse! Stall or corral at extra cost; Close access to hiking and horseback riding trails; Other pets by prior permission only; Fishing pond; outdoor fire pit. No smoking; no drunkenness.
    Private country setting, gravel road entrance and nice view from the front porch looking out over fields, wooded sections and pasture. Nights are punctuated with the calls and cries of owls, coyotes and frogs. Deer are abundant as are turkey and birds. There are several neighbors but they are not close nor will you hear them because of the distance.
  • This was my second stay at Genie’s place and it was even better than the first stay. An extra bonus is the awesome hiking trail at the end of her street (part of the River to River through trail.) It was truly spectacular and there was even a recognized vortex right on the way... very cool! Had a great time... peaceful mornings and fun days!!

    Mandy2020-02-24T00:00:00Z
  • My stay at Genie’s home was lovely in every way. The room was clean and comfortable and she provided lots of extra homey touches including “brownies in a cup” ... yum!! The property was quiet and beautiful and her critters were adorable.Genie is a wealth of information about the wonderful hikes and nature trails in the area. I would recommend a stay at this Vienna getaway to anyone and I most certainly will stay there again! Thanks Genie and the poodle pod (you too Moose!). Mandy

    Mandy2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • Really wonderful place, through and through! It's location is secluded so it's unbelievably quiet and peaceful. There are a number of awesome hiking trails and nature sights to see in the surrounding area. Genie is a BRILLIANT host - so warm and welcoming, and ready to point you in the right direction of the best hiking and nature trails! The room is perfect-sized, the bed was comfortable, everything you need is right there, just the perfect little place to stay!

    Carisa2020-02-12T00:00:00Z
  • Genie is there to make your stay as comfortable as possible. She has few farm animals which are awesome to see!! It’s a very quite get away. Genie is a great person to ask for places to go hiking. Which I did and that was so awesome never would of found any of those places on my own. I travel a lot for work so Genie was a great host to rent a room for so I can visit and chat and she also gave me space as well. Bed was comfortable there is a microwave and coffee maker in the room along with a mini fridge which worked out great for my week long stay.

    Rachel2020-01-31T00:00:00Z
  • Great hospitality. Bed is very comfortable, there a mini fridge microwave and coffee maker. You are close to a lot of hiking trails which are so beautiful and ask Genie for any tips on where to go she knows the best spots. Not a lot of stores around so make sure to pick something up before you stay. I would stay here again for the peace and quite and ability to hike fantastic places and enjoy talking with Genie.

    Rachel2020-01-29T00:00:00Z
  • Comfortable and cozy room and a great host. Genie helped me find local hikes to go on and offered to accompany me out to dinner on my first night. The internet worked great, the bed was comfortable, everything was clean and Genie's property is gorgeous, especially the stars at night!

    Christine2020-01-19T00:00:00Z

  • Great place and great hosts. The place was clean and a wonderful getaway in the middle of Shawnee. We will be back! Oh and they are pet friendly which is a huge plus

    Blake2020-01-12T00:00:00Z
  • The hosts refunded me their full amount when I had to cancel last minute. It was a nice and welcome surprise as they did not have to do so. To me, that says so much about the way somebody welcomes guests in their space and who they really are. Hope to make it here soon for a trip to Garden of the Gods.

    Meg2020-01-01T00:00:00Z
  • From the handwritten welcome to the fruit and food, John and Rebecca made my experience amazing!

    Jay2019-12-01T00:00:00Z
  • John and Rebecca were helpful hosts who were easy to communicate with. Their rural place was perfectly located for exploring southern Illinois. We were pleasantly surprised by the fresh eggs and grapes in the fridge as well as many other quick breakfast options. Overall, the Little House was a cute, cozy, and clean space in a beautiful setting with lots of thoughtful touches! We enjoyed our 5 night stay!

    Austin2019-11-19T00:00:00Z

    J A2019-11-16T00:00:00Z
  • We loved staying at the Little House! The property is beautiful, the house is cute and cozy, and our hosts were amazingly kind and thoughtful. They surprised us with yummy baked goods and even lit the campfire and set out chairs and blankets for us. The kitchen was stocked with everything we needed to fix meals, and they had fruit, yogurt, oatmeal, and muffins available for breakfast. The beds were comfy and the place is very tastefully decorated. We also loved that we could bring our dog Kiva with us. We would definitely recommend staying here, perfect location for hiking and a country getaway.

  • We spent 4 nights at Shawnee Paradise and it was so relaxing and peaceful. Perfect for our needs. Deer, squirrels and birds were daily visitors. The kitchen was fully stocked with all the essentials to cook. It rained the whole time we were there, but we were so cozy it didn’t matter. The decor was done tastefully with very nice touches. There are so many things to see and do in the Shawnee Forest and other parks close by. Would definitely return to enjoy better weather or even to come back and stay rained in, it was that relaxing!

Amy was a great host! We didn't realise it was 25-30 minutes out of town (our fault) so next time we come we will pack more food and be more prepared! We enjoyed our stay and will definitely stay here again in the future!

    Near Ferne Clyffe state park, Giant City State Park, multiple southern IL wineries, and many other lakes and parks. Fishing, boating, mountain biking, hiking, relaxing!
  • Kris and Matt's cabin was perfect for our stay. It had the snug and cozy feel I was hoping for. The Wifi is a bit spotty, but they have a Smart TV and a nice selection of DVDs. They have a lot of kitchen utensils and plenty of blankets to stay warm. The cabin is a bit far from major hiking locations, but usually no more than an hour and a half. The owners were very helpful and communicative every step of the way. Easy check in and check out. Beautiful new dock and water amenities available just across the street. Stocked with plenty of firewood. Very nice place to take a vacation.

    Briana2020-03-09T00:00:00Z
  • 2 adults and 2 large dogs. Weekend stay. Traditional (owner built) log cabin that is elevated with a spacious deck/porch. Full bath and kitchen with everything you need (minus a dishwasher. It’s cabin living. Hand wash em) 2 separate sleeping lofts that get nice and toasty. Gas fireplace was a nice touch for our frigid Valentine’s Day weekend. Matt and Kris quickly answered all of our questions and checked in periodically via messenger to make sure everything was going well. Along with the red roof retreat, they have 3 other structures. Their personal/main cabin. A one room tiny house. And a currently under construction tree house with 2 decks, full kitchen, full bath, and trap door style sleeping quarters. We CANNOT wait to visit one of their other two properties this spring/summer!

    Amanda2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • My boyfriend and I stayed at the Red Roof cabin for our first trip to the Shawnee National Forest and had a great stay! The cabin was cozy and clean, and we had all we needed to cook a little and relax. The location is about 45 mins away from garden of the gods and under a half an hour from giant city. Kris was so helpful in making sure we were comfortable and settled in. I’d recommend staying here to anyone visiting the area :)

    Leslie2020-01-20T00:00:00Z
  • On Christmas Eve Eve :) my husband and I had to leave to head to Illinois for a family illness emergency. Kris was so helpful as we drove through the night she made sure we were all set before arrival. With the stress of the trip and holidays it made our sudden trip much more enjoyable having an amazing place to stay!

    Brandi2019-12-25T00:00:00Z
  • Kris’s place was a perfect spot for a family get away. Quiet, relaxing and so comfortable.

    Chris2019-12-08T00:00:00Z
  • Nice little cabin that has everything you need for a nice relaxing weekend.

    Mus2019-10-27T00:00:00Z
  • Red Roof Retreat is clean, well appointed, and in a perfect location for enjoying the Shawnee National Forest! Kris was a fabulous host - helpful guides to the local region, comfortable accommodations with the thoughtful touches that make a rental 'cozy', and a great space exactly as described. We enjoyed the lake access and stargazing, easily took day trips to Makanda's art community (Vulture Fest!!), and explored the Shawnee. This trip was just my husband and I, but our 2 kids would have fit the space great also. We would book this cabin for a future family trip or another weekend away together.

    Kevin2020-02-17T00:00:00Z
  • What a beautiful space! Quiet and serene are two words that come to mind. I needed a space to rest after running an ultra in the town of Vienna. The race was about 25min from the Airbnb and it was a great place to come back to after a long race.

    Shea And Virren2019-11-10T00:00:00Z
  • Vickey thought of everything! Her place is so amazing and spotless! Her kitchen is fully stocked including spices and she even has first aid stuff in the closet! Beautiful view! highly recommend!

    Linn2019-10-27T00:00:00Z
  • This was our first time staying at Lake Egypt. I want to let everyone know that Vicky made it an amazing time for my family. We are a family of 6 and this home fit us perfectly!!! Located on a private road , it was quiet and secluded. It was extremely clean and Vicky went out of her way to make sure we had all the special amenities we needed. From the welcome basket with coffee, popcorn and water to the special accommodations in the bathroom such as shampoo,conditioner, body soap, and toothpaste, Vicky made sure we had everything we needed for a week long stay. The kitchen is very spacious and it was furnished with everything we needed. There was a wonderful selection of games for the kids to play at the kitchen table that overlooked the beautiful lake!!! The living room decor was perfect and the view was amazing. The outside of the home was beautiful, just steps away from the water .... there were extra kayaks and an awesome Lily pad for the kids to swim on! They loved it. We caught fish right off the docks!! There is a cozy fire pit down by the water for s’mores and enjoying the water in the evening as well. The neighbors were also very friendly and overall I would give this place a 10/10!!! We will definitely be returning ! Thank you again Vicky for such an awesome vacation!

    David2019-09-22T00:00:00Z
  • My wife and I and another couple had a wonderful stay at Vickeys place. We were impressed by how clean it was and all the extras she had available to us. We would definitely like to stay again sometime.

    Mike2019-09-14T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful views of lake, nice patio, easy check in and thoughtful touches. We really enjoyed our time here.

    David2019-09-08T00:00:00Z
  • Let's start with the house it was sparkling clean in every area. Stocked with anything you would need for cooking etc. beds were super comfortable. Then you head out to the upper patio that has a great view of the lake and great shade. Down the hill to your private dock area where they have kayaks, floats, fishing gear yard games in a shed for you to use you literally don't need to bring much. Great fishing right off the dock. Took the kayaks out a few times even got to see eagles in the wild while out fishing in the kayaks. House was great and enough room for our family of 3 plus Grandma and Grandpa stayed too. You will not be disappointed in this place. We had a great family weekend here! Made some Great Lake memories.

    Randall2019-08-19T00:00:00Z
  • Vicky was great to work with Helped us with extending our stay). Communication was practically instant. Place was clean and description was as advertised (and some more). Great place to just kick back relax, fish, swim and boat watch. Thanks again.

  • This place is amazing. There’s elk and all kinds of creatures running around. It’s right on a small lake and plenty quiet. The dock is a perfect place to have your morning coffee and take in all the nature. We loved our stay and will come back here next time we drive through the area!

    Odis2019-08-13T00:00:00Z
  • This was an incredible experience--it's hard to believe this place is in Illinois! Jerry was a great host and super responsive. The cabin itself was very well decorated, spacious and clean. We enjoyed watching the abundance of wildlife (elk, deer, rams, bison, zebras!) all while sitting on the deck or kayaking on the lake. A perfect place for a relaxing getaway.

    Nicole2019-08-11T00:00:00Z
  • My wife and I were here for two nights with our 3 kids. Our kids absolutely loved the close-up views of elk, deer, and bison that roam freely on the grounds. We watched thundershowers, rainbows, snakes, and lots of other cool animals from the deck of this cabin. The kids played on the beach for hours. Awesome place.

    Mike2019-08-07T00:00:00Z
  • Calm, cool, serene, and with unexpected awesomeness! Beautiful.

    Kristin2019-07-31T00:00:00Z
  • Perfect family getaway! The amount of wildlife on the property really is incredible, and it was great just hanging out at the cabin, fishing, kayaking, and relaxing. Love that they are pet-friendly too! Highly recommended!

    Marie2019-07-30T00:00:00Z
  • Such a fun spot!

    Tyler2019-07-26T00:00:00Z
  • This place was beyond what we expected !!! My husband and i took a last minute get away for some much needed relaxation and thats exactly what we found!!! Jerry is humble in his description of the property there was wildlife everywhere!!!!! It was so serine!!!! My only complaint was that we couldnt stay longer this place is genuinely enough reason to visit southern Illinois without seeing any of the other local attractions.

    Crystal2019-07-19T00:00:00Z
  • What are you waiting for?! Book now! This was one of the coolest places I happened to stumble upon, on a work trip. You absolutely won’t believe you are in Illinois. The pictures don’t even come close to doing this property justice. The scenery: I sat out on the deck overlooking the water and I could see Elk, deer, buffalo, cows, a zebra, what I believe was a big horned sheep, possibly a horse (but it was a little too far off in the distance to be sure), turtles, frogs, and fish, all within view. I watched the elk cool off in lake, and the fawn prance around the edge. I was in absolute awe. Next to the cabin was a beach with kayaks and a beautiful dock with adirondack chairs. Yes, you could seriously be kayaking on one side while watching Elk swimming on the other side! The cabin: The cabin was adorable. Living room had a tv, love seat and chair. Kitchen had everything I needed to cook the food I brought. The bathroom was on the main level and the shower took a second to warm up, but the water got nice and hot after it did. There was a bedroom with a queen bed on the main level as well. The upstairs was a loft and basically had two rooms with queen beds that were separated by a catwalk. It was cutely decorated. Like I said, it had a deck overlooking the water. It also had a gas grill and table and a couple chairs. The grill worked great and I sat outside and enjoyed the view while I ate dinner and had a glass of wine. The owner: AMAZING! They responded so quickly and were great with all of my questions. The downside: I had to leave! You will completely understand what I mean, almost immediately after arriving. You won’t want to go home either. You are surrounded by trees and water so obviously there were some bugs, but nothing a little spray didn’t take care of. Now that I’m finished writing this review, I’m hoping I don’t regret it. The minute more people start finding out about this gem, it’s never going to have availability.

  • Megan's lakehouse is fantastic. I visited for a weekend with my family in the winter and we had a great time. Her place is very clean and tidy. Megan is a great communicator, with quick responses and clear instructions for check-in. The house is right on the lake, and includes a nice patio area with an outdoor couch. Would highly recommend a stay regardless of time of year.

  • Jill’s lakeside retreat is a great find. Three bedrooms upstairs, and one down makes plenty of room for sleeping. My bed was super comfortable and the pillows were perfect. Jill has went out of her way to make sure all the necessary items are already available for an easy getaway. Kitchen was well stocked and cooking was so easy. All the condiments and spices made the best touch. No need to run out and get dinner or spend extra on those necessary items. We enjoyed coffee each morning while relaxing in the living area by the fire. My mom loved the view and the peaceful atmosphere. We will absolutely be back!

    Morgan2019-12-07T00:00:00Z
  • Jill offers many nice touches to her home . She is quick to respond with helpful information. Her home is exceptionally clean. We enjoyed our stay immensely.

  • Jill and Wes have a special talent for making complete strangers feel welcome into their home. Not only were the amenities incredible, but the location on the lake and set up of their house both were fantastic. The property is nothing short of beautiful. If you are looking for a relaxing stay down at the Lake of Egypt, Jill and Wes can provide a great experience!

    David2019-10-27T00:00:00Z

    Lake Front House on Lake of Egypt in Southern Illinois. Our house has a great view of the lake, beautiful sunsets can be seen from our decks. The lake is well known for fishing and recreation, is on the northern edge of Shawnee National Forest, where you can enjoy the many hiking and biking trails. There are several wineries and micro breweries in the area. Great place to kick back and relax.
  • Great place to stay, very comfortable with a great location on the lake!

    David2019-09-28T00:00:00Z

  • Wonderful and quiet "get-a-way" spot for a couple or a family. Warm and cozy Lake House cabin feel. I grew up often going to lake houses with my family and this felt like home.

    Lance2019-09-03T00:00:00Z
  • Great location! We had a great time here

    Michaela2019-08-11T00:00:00Z
  • This house is a great place to make family memories on the lake! We rented it for the weekend to celebrate my mom’s birthday; the big selling point for her was the one review we read that commented on the gorgeous sunsets, and they weren’t kidding. Best sunset spot on the lake! The one (very) minor oddity was the power plant that was sitting directly across the lake from the house, it marred the view a bit, but we got over it fast and enjoyed a weekend of floating in the lovely lake and making family memories we won’t soon forget! Bud was awesome to talk to and an incredible host! We all agreed that we would definitely stay at Bud’s Place again!!!

    Erica2019-08-04T00:00:00Z
  • The house and location are great! We had 6 people stay very comfortably. The inside is very cozy and easy to relax in, and at night sitting on the deck is wonderful as well. The dock on the lake is also very easy to chill out on and swim near. 10/10

    You’ll love my place because of its roominess, privacy, beautiful lake views, peaceful, natural surroundings, and location on the edge of the Shawnee National Forest. Leave city stress behind and just relax and recharge or be as active as you like. Swim or fish off the two-slip boat dock (available for your sole use). Take your boat out fishing or water skiing, hike one or more of the Forest’s trails, or visit a winery. My place is good for couples, families and groups.
  • The place was beautiful. Deck is great for fishing, many locals stop with their boats to fish. Be aware, many steps to the dock and in the house for the elderly. We loved it though.

    Jacquie2019-10-21T00:00:00Z
  • Janet's space was perfect for our ladies weekend getaway! The house is cozy with Gorgeous views. We plan to come back already!

    Mary2019-10-14T00:00:00Z
  • Janet’s place was perfect for our girls weekend. We loved it! Couldn’t have asked for anything better and check in was super easy!

    Caitlyn2019-08-25T00:00:00Z
  • Janet was a treat to work with. She responded immediately when I had any questions and let us check in early due to early arrival. The house is great and comfortably slept 8 of us with room to spare. The dock is awesome for fishing, relaxing or jumping in the lake for a swim! Great place for great value!

    Blake2019-08-18T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing home on the lake! Our family didn’t want to leave. Just the location enough made this a spot everybody wanted to come to. The water was deep enough for adults and kids to jump and swim around in. Fishing off the dock was easy with the table and chairs set up and it must have been a good spot since all the boat kept stopping there to fish. If the location on the lake wasn’t enough, the large home would definitely have you in love. A large and gorgeous 3 story home with enough beds to comfortable sleep 11, all the amenities and comforts of home and more! When the night came to an end the back deck was a perfect spot for some card games and wind down. We will definitely recommend and will be staying here again next time we’re in Southern Illinois.

    Sasha2019-07-02T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful house with great views of the lake. Comfortable for a large group. Easy lake access for swimming and boating.

    Penny2019-06-24T00:00:00Z
  • You can’t beat the location and amount of space at this house! Janet is so helpful and we will definitely be returning!

    Jen2019-06-09T00:00:00Z
  • If your looking for a house that has space this is it! The kitchen is equipped with things you didn’t even realize you needed. Top of the line appliances. Plenty of dishes, pans galore. Wonderful deck overlooking the lake. The deck has a great swing also. Plenty of seating for meals inside or out. Great dock space for your boat(s) we enjoyed fishing (yes we caught fish!) from the dock. Both bathrooms had numerous big fluffy bath towels. Comes with a good dozen or more beach towels. Had great cellphone reception and had no need or desire for any WiFi. Plenty of parking space. The stairs weren’t a big deal we just stuck everything in a beach bag and small cooler when we went down to the lake. Definitely will be back. Great house on the lake.

    We live in the midst of the Shawnee National Forest on Lake Of Egypt. Our home sits at the top of a hill less than 300 feet from the beach in a gorgeous secluded subdivision. We are 5 miles from Ferne Clyffe State Park and less than 10 miles from a beautiful winery with lots of Antique Shopping in any direction.
    Our home sits on 4 acres in a small cozy subdivision. There is natural beauty and safety and comfort for those who like to walk & hike the outdoors.
  • We were provided a bedroom, bathroom, and common space with couches. Most importantly for us, these folks are pet-lovers and we were able to stay with our new puppy. Peggy was super cool and nice, and the kids who stopped in and out and the pets on premises all added to the charm.

    Steven2019-05-12T00:00:00Z
  • Wonderful place to stay. Peggy was amazingly accommodating to my crazy schedule and her and her husband were very sweet and helpful. Great hosts! They also have adorable and super friendly dogs!

  • Great place to stay, wonderful host and super clean. The views are amazing and right out the window! I would recommend staying here and would definitely come back.

  • Bryanna is a terrific host. The place is clean and friendly with very nice touches. For anyone looking to spend time near Egypt Lake or the Marion area this is a great place for friends and family. One caution; if you have weak legs or breathing conditions the climb from the lake to the Rock House is probably not for you.

    David2018-09-16T00:00:00Z
  • I would highly recommend Bryanna's place for you to stay! It is a beautiful peace of the lake and the accommodations are amazing! You won't regret staying here!!!!

  • Jerry's lodge is very spacious and comfortable - our family of 5 each had our own very comfortable bed. We were there for only one night, but enjoyed seeing the elk cooling off in the lake and watching the deer from the back deck. Most of the outdoor activities in the area are not actually on the property, but it took us only about 20 minutes to get to a nice hiking area in the Shawnee National Forest. The town of Vienna is close by, and we found a good Mexican restaurant and grocery store. We would definitely stay here again if in the area.

    Karen2019-08-15T00:00:00Z
  • Stayed here for a night with a youth group and wished we could’ve stayed longer. This place is beautiful and offers many activities to take part in.

    Moises2019-07-28T00:00:00Z
  • This was the perfect spot for us to stop and break up our trip. We chose the location because we wanted to see the Shawnee National Forest. The elk and bison on the property were such a bonus! Absolutely beautiful.

    Kelly2019-07-18T00:00:00Z
  • The cabin was much more spacious than I expected. We were on a girls trip but loved the scenery. Plenty of room and the beds were very comfortable. They have a very nice outdoor area also.

    Larwin2019-05-31T00:00:00Z
  • This place was truly outstanding! Such an awesome experience, especially for my 2 year old who could not get over all the animals! We originally booked it for my husbands graduation from SIUC and once he saw how awesome it was we decided to skip the ceremony and hang out at the cabin! 😂We took my parents and my in laws and they have not stopped talking about how amazing it was! We are already planning our next trip out! Worth every penny!

    Angela2019-05-12T00:00:00Z
  • This cabin was very comfortable for my team of 11. It was very spacious yet cozy. The snacks that were available to us were a warm welcome after a long day of traveling. I would definitely return if ever in the area again.

  • Marks property was fantastic. The house had great amenities including complete cookware and a working propane grill. It has a fantastic setting on the lake and has seating both inside and outside to allow you to enjoy the views even if it’s cold out. Mark was always quick to respond. This is a great place to stay if visiting the Marion or Carbondale areas.

  • We absolutely LOVED our stay at Mark’s place! The home is quaint and beautiful with a view that is unbelievable. The lake is clean and clear for swimming or floating right off the dock. The home is equipped with everything we needed for our stay, which was really nice. Mark was extremely prompt and informative throughout our stay as well! If in the area, this little gem is where I’ll want to be, without a doubt. Thank you, Mark!

  • Guy's lake house was the perfect getaway! Guy was very responsive and easy to communicate with both leading up to and during our stay. The house was cozy, clean, and comfortable with a beautiful view of the lake. We really enjoyed our stay, watching the sun over the water while sipping coffee and even sitting by the water until we got too cold. It was also close enough to enjoy some sites in the area, including Garden of the Gods. We were sad to leave, and would definitely recommend Guy's house! The only thing, it can be a little tricky to find so pay attention to Guy's directions :)

    Jean2019-11-18T00:00:00Z

  • We picked this house due to the size of the kitchen in the photos since we planned to have 4 couples stay for a Thanksgiving feast and weekend. The kitchen was everything we wanted, but so was the rest of the house. It was clean, large, comfortable, and with great views. Margaret was easy and nice to work with. The piano was an added bonus. We already plan on coming back for our next "friends-giving" get together. It's close to wineries and Jackson Falls is only 20 minutes away. This is a great place for friends or family.

    Sara2019-12-01T00:00:00Z

  • Very clean house that has everything you need.

    Bridget2019-11-10T00:00:00Z
  • Margaret does an outstanding job! The house was perfect for our mini family reunion. The house had everything you could need. The large living room and dining room space were perfect for our family to gather together. The property was very clean and inviting. The kitchen is well equipped and has pretty much anything you could need. Between the bedroom and sofas (two sleepers) we had plenty of room for everyone and could have had more people. The property is easy to find (might be a small town but not far off interstate). Looking forward to coming back again!

    Annette2019-10-27T00:00:00Z

  • Although most people come here for a hunting experience, we were there just to watch the Great American Eclipse. Jerry Was a Very communicative host, and the property was very interesting. We really enjoyed our stay. Would definitely recommend if you like the way it looks and you're interested in a hunting lodge experience that you book it ASAP.

    Jonathan2017-08-24T00:00:00Z
  • Great place to throw a bachelor party. Plenty of room (our party had 10-15 people) and great atmosphere inside and outside of lodge. The lodge was packed with kitchen and housing accommodations. All we had to do is drive less than 5 miles down the road and buy our food and consumables. Great place Jerry. Thank You

  • I had a crew of guys staying at Jerry's place while we were working on a project in time. Jerry was easy to communicate with, and his place accommodated all of my guys.

    Arun2019-09-28T00:00:00Z
  • If your reading this review to find out what you should expect when staying in any of Jerry’s rentals, well I can tell you that you should expect that at checkout you won’t want to leave and will wish you had stayed just a little longer! I have had the opportunity to bring my family to two of Jerry’s listings and overall if I had to review both experiences I would say the hospitality was my favorite part of the rentals. My family and I travel everywhere (from Hawaii to Maine) and stayed with Airbnb on most all of our trips. I don’t believe I have had a bad rental in all our bookings however Jerry and his crew are by far the most welcoming we have EVER stayed with. If your a person that travels (especially with Airbnb) then you know just how important hospitality is. We didn’t just feel welcome, we felt right at home! I am always a renter who try’s to make sure we left the homes we stay in better then when we arrived however as the mother of three accidents can happen. Spills, muddy feet, and sometimes rough housing take place and relaxation is hard to find when your worried if something like this happens the owner wouldn’t be understanding. Thankfully I have not ever had to cross this path, I want to point out that Jerry’s rentals are beautiful but very kid friendly. I never feel as though I’m walking on egg shells in his homes. Which makes my trips that much more enjoyable. I want to also add that Jerry is simply a text away and he is always quick to get you a answer for any question you may have. Even when your arriving at 10:30pm and are not sure if your in the right driveway. Yup, that would me with my awful direction reading skills: ) He didn’t just respond quickly but also with kindness. Making me feel less awful about possibly making him up with my silly questions that was actually already stated in his directions on the listing. Moving on, you will find my review on Lakeside (the first home I stayed in) I believe under the lakeside rental. Now I will tell you about the Lake Egypt Home! Like I said earlier in my review I have three children and lots of nieces and nephews who will also travel with me. This house was more than plenty to accommodate all of us. We had 3 adults and 9 kids and never once did I feel like we had beds we didn’t use. Everyone had their own (extremely comfortable) beds that were dressed with linens with freshly folded towels on top! The kitchen was perfect. As a family who generally cooks all their meals instead of eating out, the kitchen is a big deal for us when renting. It was equipped with everything we needed to feed our 12 plus family! They even had snacks in the basket for my hungry children to grab. Normally I hear the words “I’m starving” from at least one child while we unload. However They found the snacks as soon as we walked through the door, making my unloading process a little less chaotic. Again in the mom world, THIS IS HUGE! The bathroom in the master bedroom was perfect. My boys did lots of fishing and canoeing while we were there. This made for lots of dirty boys with muddy feet. Perfectly located was a bathroom off the front door that they could stay on the tile and shower there sweet selfs off before coming into living room area. Again, making my cleaning up so much easier. Also this meant that huge master bathroom stayed fresh for this momma who very much enjoyed soaking the jetted tub. All the bathrooms had soap, shampoo and conditioner for you to use in the event you would happen to forget your own. Again, this is a nice add when you arrive at 10:30 and realize that you left your toiletries bag on the table at home and your more than ready for a shower after your travel. Don’t worry about bringing extra towels. The house is equipped with plenty of bath towels and was clothes. Another one of my most favorite features of this house is the outside area. We brought scooters that the kids all enjoyed riding up and down the paved driveway. Under the large deck on the back of the house was a area that we could put a large baby pool (we brought the pool from home) for the little kids to swim in while the big kids were out on the lake. It kept the little kids cool and out of the sun. The yard was perfect for all the bubbles and toys to be played with. The beach that you will find passed the driveway to the house was under construction while we were there. However this didn’t stop us one bit. Jerry had four kayaks with paddles waiting for us at the edge of the water. We spent a lot of our time fishing from the kayaks while exploring lake Egypt. As people who do lots of fishing and traveling it was incredibly nice not to pack my own kayaks with us to get there. We simply hopped on the four by four that Jerry has waiting in the garage, drove down to the beach, hopped on the kayaks and off we went. It was like hitting the EASY button. Which meant when we were hot or hungry we were able to just run back and forth without the hassle of loading and unloading. I booked this house as a last minute rental when my boys ball games were cancelled. Hoping we could go back to see the elk on Jerry’s mountain. Only to find that all houses in Samson’s mountain were booked . I was sure we wouldn’t have as much fun here as we did...

    Jennifer2019-07-11T00:00:00Z

  • This cabin had everything my family needed for a nice weekend get-away. The cabin was very clean and the beds were comfortable and the nights were so peaceful. The only thing that lacked was the outdoor fire pit, as it had been removed - so no s’mores for the kids. Other than that, it more than lived up to our expectations.

    Terri2019-11-03T00:00:00Z

  • Nestled back in the woods, Toni’s place is quiet and nature is right out your front door. A beautiful setting. The entire house was spotless and quaintly decorated. The kitchen was stocked with everything you could possibly need and then some. We hope to book with Toni again in the Spring. We enjoyed the place that much. The host is very informative and gives detailed instructions for check in and check out. Quick response to any questions or concerns you might have. We recommend Toni’s place!!

  • Just as described. Very peaceful, clean and no problems at all.

  • Little touches like cold bottles of water in the fridge and snacks on the table made me say, "WOW!" as soon as I entered. Everything seemed brand new from carpeting to paint to appliances. I came looking for an isolation pilgrimage-- no people and zero noise. That's exactly what I got. Though when I did have to leave for anything stores and restaurants were about 10 easy minutes away. Plus it gets so dark at night that I never woke once in the middle of the night. This was far beyond my expectations. Toni was polite and gets back to ya quickly.

  • Beautiful home for couples looking for that perfect weekend retreat! Enjoyed a pontoon on Lake of Egypt where the house resides, beautiful outdoor grilling station and bonfire pit with plenty of interior space for all. A+ destination. Wonderful host!

  • What a beautiful place to rest and relax. We will HIGHLY recommend Mary Ann's place.

  • We had an amazing stay. The house was so comfortable, and we'll kept. The lake was beautiful, off the main drag so semi-private as there were neighbors but they were all super friendly. I am hoping to come back as it was a great weekend get away, but felt I could have stayed a full week!

  • Great place, quiet area, super clean, plenty of room for my family.

    Courtney2019-05-12T00:00:00Z
  • Wonderful vacation house on a lake. Highly recommend for a group of friends or a family. Mary Ann was incredibly Communicative and responsive.

    Jessica2019-04-14T00:00:00Z
  • This place is amazing. The house took our entire group (14 including 6 children) with ease. By far our favorite amenity is the dock and lake. We lucked out with the weather being perfect, and we spent our entire 3 days on the dock while the kids enjoyed the diving board and slide. Being next to the boat landing made putting in and taking out my jet ski's super convenient. The large deck, patio area and outdoor kitchen were really handy as well. All in all , this place exceeded our expectations in every category. Mary Ann was very quick to respond and easy to work with.

  • Awesome LARGE house with a great outdoor area/dock!

    Erin2018-07-17T00:00:00Z
  • This is an amazing lake house with a beautiful view right on the water! The house is very spacious and easily accommodated our group of 7. I wouldn’t hesitate at all to book this unit.

    Located on Lake of Egypt this home defines perfection. Your own private beach, and a massive dock with diving board and slide frame the outside perfection. Located directly on the lake this home is 3200 sq feet. A 4 bedroom 3 bath mater piece with a ping pong room and children living room. The massive island in the kitchen can accommodate the whole family. Views are second to none. Visit our website for more detail and pics.
  • I was looking for a relaxing weekend on the lake and this place definitely delivered! It is a gorgeous house with plenty of space for a couples retreat or in my case just a group of friends. The house is located on a quiet street and as soon as you walk in there is a great view of the lake through a wall of windows. A large kitchen and living room also allow you to view the lake through the big windows. The master bedroom is huge with a large enclosed shower and a walk in closet. The additional bedrooms are also very good size and there is an extra room downstairs with a ping pong table and tv for extra entertainment. We enjoyed grilling out on the deck and afterwards spent hours in the lake. We had plans on having sitting around the fire pit also but just couldn't get away from the water. It had a good size dock with a diving board and slide and also provided some kayaks for a little extra entertainment. I just can't say enough about how much we enjoyed this home.
