Relaxing family get away

  • 5 of 5

Great property. We stayed with 6 adults and 5 children ages 1-11 and it was comfortable for all of us. The kids were able to play safely. The 2 living areas were perfect for some quiet time. Brian was very accommodating, friendly and easy to work with. We were able to cook a thanksgiving meal and all eat together. It was perfect. The house was stocked with all essentials and we didn’t need a things. Very clean and comfortable. We’d definitely book again.

Surprising Gem

  • 5 of 5

Our family gathered from 4 states for a week of relaxation and outdoor activity in hilly, rural southern Illinois. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves, in a comfy home/cabin, nicely secluded in Shawnee National Forest. We met and spoke with our host a couple times, as Brian made sure that we were aware of special activities and resources in the area. These included canoeing on Little Grassy Lake, hiking to Inspiration Point along limestone cliffs that look toward the Mississippi River, going to the water park in Cape Girardeau, wine tasting at Alto Vineyards, eating at Hedman Vineyards, celebrating a 60th birthday at Celebrations in Cape Girardeau, and fixing great meals at Big Sky Cabin.

Nice cabin and very responsive owner

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at this cabin. Very clean and plenty of space for our large group. The owner was very responsive when I reached out to him for everything from arrival and departure plans, for local restaurant delivery options, and changing the number of guests we had. I would highly recommend this cabin. The property is beautiful and you truly feel like you are away from it all.

Winery weekend stay

  • 5 of 5

We rented the house for a bachelorette party winery weekend. The location was perfect for this. The cabin was beautiful and had plenty of space for everyone. We did run into an issue the first night when the water quit working but Brian (the homeowner ) within an hour or so of notification of the problem had it fixed . He handled the situation perfectly and came out to the cabin himself with a person to fix the water even though it was 11:00 at night. I really appreciated all he did to fix that. After that the rest of the weekend went great! Would definitely stay here again
