About Brian Stone

I am a graduate of SIU and now the proud owner of the Alto Wine Trail Loft.

Brian Stone purchased this cabin in 2010

Why Brian Stone chose Illinois

I have chosen this location because it is in the Heart of The Wine Trail & Shawnee National Forest. It is also a short drive to Southern Illinois University, Giant City, Cedar Lake, Alto Vineyards, Trails End Lodge, Hedman Orchard and Vineyard, Broken Wheel Ranch, Gity Stables, Rustle Hill Vineyard.

What makes this cabin unique

*On the Wine Trail *In the heart of the Shawnee Forest *Less than a mile from 3 vineyards *Wonderful restored Loft one of a kind. *2 minute walk to the Alto Pass Look out

Perfect location on the Shawnee Hills Wine Trail

  • 5 of 5

This place was a great location to check out the wineries and also was very nice on the inside! Plenty of room for the six of us to celebrate a Bachelorette party. Brian was super helpful with recommending places to go!

CABIN ON THE CREEK IS WHERE WE STAYED

  • 4 of 5

OVERALL THE CABIN WAS GOOD. WE STAYED FRIDAY THRU SUNDAY. HAD A GREAT TIME ON THE WINE TRAIL. WE HAD A HARD TIME FINDING A PLACE THAT SERVED BREAKFAST, WE DROVE ABOUT 30 MILES TO GET BREAKFAST ON SUNDAY MORNING. I HAVE TWO THINGS I WOULD LIKE TO MENTION ABOUT THE CABIN...1) A MOP COULD HAVE BEEN RAN OVER THE FLOORS I HATE IT WHEN YOU STEP OUT OF THE SHOWER AND WALK ON A FLOOR AND YOUR FEET FEEL DIRTY. 2) THE WATER HAD A SULFUR SMELL(ROTTEN EGG).

BRIAN WAS VERY NICE AND ACCOMODATING. THE AREA IS VERY SMALL TOWN AND RELAXING, BEAUTIFUL COUNTRY. PEOPLE ARE VERY NICE AND FRIENDLY.

WE WILL BE DOING IT AGAIN IN THE FUTURE.

Owner's Response: Connie than you for letting us know about the floor. We will try harder to do better. The water is well water.......we have a filtration system on it, not much else we can do! Next time check out the great breakfast places in Carbondale only 15 minutes away! Thanks again for staying please come back anytime.

The place was comfortable and well stocked in the kitchen and bathroom. Nice place to stay.

  • 4 of 5

The renter was extremely nice and available for any questions. Very clean and comfortable. The mattress was somewhat uncomfortable for me but not unsleepable. I would definitely recommend this place. We were close to the Shawnee Wine Trail. We had a wonderful weekend!!

Great Service, but misleading description

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at Big Sky Cabin and I must say the service Brian provided leading up to our stay was incredible. He offered suggestions on area attractions, provided contact numbers, accommodated a few changes I needed to make and was always super courteous and quick to respond. On top of that, during our stay we needed a few items and his staff delivered promptly. 5 stars for service without a doubt!!! However, I will suggest that I think the description is a little misleading for Big Sky. It says it can sleep 20, but I would say it sleeps 12 at best (that's with 8 in a bed and 4 on couches). There are no sofa sleepers, so we were provided several air mattresses for the 18 of us that stayed for a bachelorette party and I'd call it a pretty tight fit. And sadly, the air mattresses had holes and the pumps didn't work - but as stated, his staff addressed the issue quickly! Perhaps charge full price for up to 12, but beyond that if you're provided air mattresses I feel a sizeable discount would be appropriate. The inside of this property was BEAUTIFUL though! We loved the separate living space and game room. Plenty of room to hang out and spread out, just not the sleeping space it says it has. If I could make one suggestion, it would be to attend to the outside of the property as much as the inside is addressed. A good power wash would do wonders to the entry way and would make a much better first impression as guests pull up! Overall, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and the service everyone provided. We left happy!! Thank you, Brian!
