We stayed in the Indigo Cottage, it was very cozy perfect for a romantic getaway with my husband. Bed and linens were very comfortable, loved the view from the bed. Everything was very nice.

We have been to the inn 5 years in a row now and absolutely LOVE it. We have stayed in the lodge and in both the West End Cottage and the Indigo Cottage. We love the privacy and the feeling of getting away from everything and getting lost in the woods (we don't even get a cell signal...truly getting away)....

It is an excellent location, excellent accommodations, and best of all the service and food couldn't have been better. We are now looking to make plans to visit at other times of the year. Heather was outstanding as...

Absolutely perfect. We went there for my birthday and to go on the wine trail. We spent two nights at the cottage and enjoyed a wonderful breakfast at the Inn. We also did some hiking. It was a wonderful get away.

Wonderful place to stay near Carbondale in the wine country. After dropping off a student at SIUC, my wife and I stayed here, near the Shawnee National Forest and Shawnee Wine Trail. Great scenery on the nearby trails and good entertainment at the nearby winery made this place very attractive. Breakfast was good and the service was polite.

Very interesting place with interesting decor and design. We stayed in a cabin/ duplex that was designed well with interesting wood furniture custom built by local craftsmen. A quiet place well off the beaten path. Cell phone and wifi were subpar but this area has same problem region wide. Even in Carbondale wifi is very low bandwidth at best. Well...
