This quaint little cabin has everything a couple would need to enjoy a little time away. My wife and I enjoyed the attention to detail that our host Mary took to ensure a lovely stay. Everything has been thought of. Everything is provided. We will definitely return!

We stayed here the second time this spring. The cabin and pond are beautiful, but the pond is deceiving. There are photos on Facebook from shortly after the owners bought the property showing a few big fish caught. If you are looking for any kind of sport fishing this is not the place now though. The pond has not been...

My boyfriend and I were down in Marion visiting family and wanted alone time for just the two of us. We found this place and fell in love with everything about it. I was a bit nervous being that we are in our early twenties and how we may be easily judged as "a risk". Needless to say, Mary was...

We stayed one night with our young son. Couch pulls out into a second bed. Located next to house, but Mary gives you your privacy. Enjoyed the zucchini bread and orange juice for breakfast. Enjoyed the dinner suggestion. Good place to start the Shawnee wine trail.

From start to finish Mary was a wonder person to work with. She answered all my questions and made registration so easy. Mary was also an abudance of information about the area and made our trip that much more enjoyable by taking her advice on places to see. The pictures of the cabin do not do it justice. It's clean,...

This was our second time staying at Goddard Place and renting from the host, Mary. We will never stay anywhere else but here when we are in the area. Clean, peaceful, beautiful surroundings. On the back deck you can relax and look over the small lake/pond on perfectly manicured grass, trees and flowers. There is a BBQ grill outdoors to...

A very nicely maintained, quiet little cabin with a back deck looking out over a pond made for a very comfortable and relaxing two night stay. The propane stove did a great job of keeping the cabin warm and toasty. The owner was waiting for us upon arrival and was very pleasant and cordial while explaining the cabin details. We...

I am so glad you liked our little cabin and glad you caught some fish! I just wanted to follow up a few things - the Wireless connection listed The Goddard's and Goddard guest belong to a relative. That is why you were unable to sign on. I would gladly have shared my router and its password if you had...

We stayed here for only 1 night, but it would be a perfect spot to relax and enjoy the outdoors for a longer stay. The pond and the large shady yard were very soothing. It was super quiet and very clean with all the amenities we needed. The Interstate was near by for easy access, but was still quiet and...

This cabin is wonderful. I researched the area prior to makeing the reservation. We stayed 4 nights. The owner made sure everything was perfect and was very friendly. It is super clean. Sitting on the back porch you can relax and gaze upon the peaceful lake. It is beautiful. We had a new flavor of delicious Mennonite homemade bread every...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Goddard Place, hidden among the wooded hills of scenic Southern Illinois and the Shawnee National Forest, is a quiet peaceful change of pace. Guests can relax on the back deck overlooking the small lake, just a stone's throw away, and listen to the breeze rustle through the pines that shade the 28' x 16' log cabin. ... more   less
