Very nice cabins - was perfect for the quick weekend getaway. The jacuzzi was the tipping point for booking and totally enjoyed! Lots of small towns to wander through and will be back to enjoy the trails and nature during warmer months

We had the best little getaway at the Shawnee Treehouse Cabin. The location was perfect for hiking and sightseeing around the Shawnee Forest. The cabin provided everything we needed for a few days of rest and relaxation after the holidays!

Great couples getaway! Perfect for a midweek couples getaway to the Garden of the Gods area. Close to where we wanted to be, full kitchen for meals, access to our Netflix and Prime accounts when it was too rainy to go hiking. Definitely recommend for a couples trip!!

Cabin life the right way! This cabin experience couldn’t have been any better. Last minute booking that went smooth with communications by phone and text. The owners/operators are very efficient with up to date systems yet they can still do the old way - use the phone and answer simple questions. The cabin is clean, layed out well, stocked with necessities and located close to garden of the gods. Even though the cabin was easy to see and find from the road, it felt private when we arrived. The hot tub is facing woods, right off the kitchen and has a nice ambiance for relaxing. The bathroom area was really nice. We would definitely stay here again even tho it was slightly higher than we had planned to pay. The company does a nice job all around.

Nicely Appointed and Modern I feared Southern Illinois would be so remote, we wouldn’t have a chance to stay somewhere very nice. Wrong! This place was very nice and new, clean and very well thought out. Starting with the self check-in, we arrived to cool air conditioning and a fresh-cut wood smell to the cabin. We felt like the first people to stay in cabin 7. After a day of exploring, we came home to build a cozy campfire outside and then after dark, a soak in the hot tub. Everything was in top working order and we found everything we needed. They even supplied a charger for our Tesla! Not until check-out did we discover the online house manual with instructions to everything. Love that! We’re already planning a future visit during winter next time!

Spent the weekend with extended family to do some horseback riding and hiking in Shawnee. Perfect location! Me and my extended family enjoyed a weekend stay at the cabins. We stayed in the 1 bedroom, 2 bedroom, and treehouse cabins. Loved the modern look, the cleanliness, and the wonderful location. The fire pit, hot tubs, and yard area were wonderful bonuses. This rental is highly recommended by my family! Thanks for your hospitality!

Great place to stay near the Garden of the Gods The cabins were clean, cozy and nicely furnished. It had all the amenities we needed. The bed was very comfortable and the bath and kitchen like new. Proximity to theGarden if the Gods was perfect. We enjoyed two trail hikes to gorgeous observation points and there were many more local trails for hiking. A great place to stay in the National Forest.

Cozy, clean and lovely! Our cabin was so cozy and welcoming. It was everything we needed for our trip. One of my favorite things was having morning coffee at the picnic table in the yard. The hot tub was the best part of every evening. If e are ever in the area again, we will stay here!

Perfect getaway You will want to look no further. The cabin is super clean and so close to Garden of the Gods. Hot tub is perfect to relax in after your hike. Ice cream shop within walking distance just up the road. We have stayed here several times and wouldn’t stay anywhere else.

Our Shawnee cabin #8 met all our expectations. Clean, comfortable, and well equipped for our trip to the Garden of the Gods. The confirmation emails sent are detailed and explain everything. I highly recommend staying at the Shawnee Forest cabins.

Cabins are centrally located within a short walk to the Garden of Gods! Our family of 6 stayed in Cabin 4 which was a 2 bedroom cabin. The cabins were clean and had everything we needed for a 2 night stay; comfortable beds and sofa, a warm shower, a very useful kitchen with fridge and coffee maker, a smart TV and super fast internet. We already booked our next visit for the fall. Do yourself a favor and book this place. You won't regret it!

We heard great things about theses cabins. We booked it over Mother's Day weekend. The cabin was much smaller and cramped than the pictures make it appear on-line. We were very close to the other cabins. The view therefore was nothing special. No beautiful forests to look at. The icing on the cake was the smoke detector started chirping at 12am. I contacted the host who responded right away (found out later this was only because she was scrolling thru emails). She helped us find a long pole to reset it. She assured us that the batteries were changed in January and didn't understand why this happened. The next evening at 11:30am it went off again. Since this was a hiking trip, our goal was to get up early. So instead of changing the batteries while we were out on day 1 -they waited for it to happen again. Two nights of sleep interrupted. No compensation for our inconvenience and interrupted sleep on both of the nights of our stay. Not what I call good customer service. When you are one of two places to stay in the area, the bar doesn't have to be that high. Definitely will not stay there again

This place is absolutely fantastic. A truly amazing weekend or mid-week getaway for a single person, a couple, or even a family. The cabins are very well-built with impressive construction. The location is private enough but not entirely secluded from other neighbors or nearby towns. So in essence it feels very safe. The hot tub was pre-heated for us when we got there, which is essential given it can take 4 hours to half a day to heat up. The bed mattresses were very comfortable. Plenty of supplies in the kitchen and a full size stove and fridge. The wifi is actually very fast and we were able to stream Disney+ for kids at one moment (bring your own roku stick or other device if you need to connect). If not, they have DirecTV satellite installed. It was only a 7 minute drive to Garden of the Gods hiking trails were absolutely gorgeous. Also, Carrie was extremely reachable and very quick to respond. She provided personal contact information, which is unbelievable. A wonderful experience; we will be sure to return.

Very nice & clean cabins. We had no issues of any sort, was a nice touch to have the free firewood & the hot tub on the privacy deck / porch. The bed was excellent & better than most places. Also, location is excellent & close to the many places we visited & hiked at. We would return.
